Taking place in Moscow in 1952 CHILD 44 is the chilling story of the mysterious murder of a young boy. Based on best-selling novel of the same name the film stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace and is described as follows:
“A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, CHILD 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov [Tom Hardy], who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa [Noomi Rapace], as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov [Gary Oldman] to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasil [Joel Kinnaman], who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.””
Here is a look at the new teaser poster. I am hoping the poster makes more sense after I see the film.
