Official trailer for Gary Oldman’s Soviet-era thriller, “Child 44”

The suspenseful first trailer has been released for Child 44, starring Gary Oldman (Sirius Black). It was back in March 2013 when we first heard about Oldman’s role in the film, an adaptation of the first book in a politically charged trilogy by British author Tom Rob Smith.

The story takes place in the Stalin-era Soviet Union. Secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy) has been disgraced for refusing to name his wife (Noomi Rapace) a traitor. While exiled to a provincial outpost, he begins investigating a series of child murders. But as the investigation goes on, the chief of police (Gary Oldman) begins to suspect Demidov himself of treason.

Check out the thrilling trailer below:

I have been a fan of Harry since 2000, a fan of MuggleNet since 2005, and a MuggleNet team member since 2013. I believe in the power of stories to bring people together, and nothing does that quite like Harry Potter. I’m an annoyingly proud Canadian and live in Toronto.
