Serial killer thrillers are a pretty standard genre but Child 44 takes the unique approach of setting it in the Soviet Union in the 50’s. Tom Hardy stars as disgraced former member of the secret police who is exiled with his wife (Noomi Rapace) to an industrial outskirt and becomes involved with an investigation into a killer preying on young boys. Gary Oldman co-stars as General Nesterov, who is also on the investigation. Ridley Scott is producing and it’s directed by Daniel Espinosa, who directed Safe House. It’s out in April and you can check out the trailer below.
