Serial killer films are nothing new, but moviegoers can expect a new twist on the genre in the upcoming Child 44. Tom Hardy stars as a military officer searching for a serial killer targeting children in the Stalin-led Soviet Union of 1952. Hunting the most twisted of criminal minds becomes even more difficult and dangerous in a society where the state insists that "there is no murder."
Child 44 is based on the best-selling novel by Tom Rob Smith, which was inspired by the true crimes of convicted killer Andrei Chikatilo.
Child 44, also starring Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Vincent Cassel, and Charles Dance, hits theatres in the U.S. on April 17 of this year. Watch the trailer below!
