Radcliffe plays Miles, a mild-mannered video game designer whose life unexpectedly becomes a first person shooter. In the first of two trailers, the mysterious gang SKIZM breaks down his door and deadbolts handguns to his wrists. Miles is an unwilling participant in the games, but as he learns, “You have 24 hours to kill Nix. If you fail, you die.”
A second trailer develops the character of Nix (Samara Weaving), a return contestant on the streaming program whose previous appearances were all murderously successful. Rounding out the cast are Rhys Darby as a homeless man and Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Miles’ ex-girlfriend Nova. Watch both trailers below.
Guns Akimbo premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and arrives in theaters on February 28th.
