The hilariously dark and viciously violent film follows Miles Harris (Daniel Radcliffe), a nerdy video game developer whose world is turned upside-down when he's enrolled in a dark social media movement that forces strangers to fight in a citywide game of death.
Again: Miles must fight for his life with guns screwed to your hands, and he is informed that he will die unless he kills the current Skizm champion, the invincible Nix (Samara Weaving). Miles scrambles to get out of Nix's crosshairs and onto her side, desperately attempting to persuade her they should pool their firepower to turn the tables on Skizm-a tall order, considering he can't even pull up his trousers with those gun hands.
Howden's 2015 feature debut Deathgasm, as you can likely tell from its title alone, demonstrated the rookie filmmaker's aptitude for zany hijinks laced with tons of blood and chuckles, and Guns Akimbo promises plenty of the same. Either you're onboard with Daniel Pistolhands, or you're not-there's not a whole lot of middle ground here.
Largely filmed in Auckland, New Zealand, Guns Akimbo's worldwide cast also includes Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) Kiwi actor and comedian Rhys Darby (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), Irish actor Ned Dennehy (Peaky Blinders) and Australian actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny).
An global trailer for the action-comedy Guns Akimbo has exploded online, and does a damned fine job of showing off the level of insane this film is gunning for. See the trailer and full synopsis below.
Occupant Entertainment's Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino and Four Knights Film's Tom Hern produced the film.
