After causing quite a stir at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, the very unique action flick "Hardcore" will now be heading to theaters, courtesy of its distributor STX, with a new name: "Hardcore Henry." 

Told entirely from a first-person POV and shot exclusively with a GoPro camera, "Hardcore Henry" throws the viewer inside the perspective of a man just raised from the dead by a woman claiming to be his wife. Suddenly, she is kidnapped by the warlord of an army of mercenaries. The viewer then follows Henry as he runs through the streets of Moscow in order to rescue her, all while trying figure out who he is and why he is in Moscow in the first place. Sharlto Copley co-stars as a mysterious man named Jimmy, who may or may not be trying to help along the way. 

Discussing their latest acquisition, STX President Oren Aviv said, "This film puts moviegoers into the story and experience in a fun and visceral new way with a first-person perspective that we really have not experienced before."

In addition to renaming the picture, STX has also set a release date. "Hardcore Henry" will be out in theaters on April 8.
