1953: A disgraced Russian cop (he wouldn’t denounce his wife s a traitor) is saddled with the investigation into the ‘accidental’ death of a young boy – but the boy was clearly murdered. His investigation leads to the discovery of others, also ignored or covered up – ‘murder is a capitalist disease!’
Tom Hardy stars as Leo Demidov in the adaptation of bestseller Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. Noomi Rapace plays Leo’s wife, Raisa, and Gary Oldman co-stars as General Mikhail Nesterov. The three must track down a serial killer in a country that refuses to admit to his existence.
Child 44 premiere on April 17th. Check out the intense trailer after the jump.
