No one Trailer: Bob Odenkirk makes John Wick seem like an newbie

The creator of “John Wick” strikes again with the help of “Hardcore Henry” director Ilya Naishuller.

Move over John Wick because there’s a new badass in town. His name is Hutch Mansell, and while the name may not have the same sound, it’s just as deadly as the great Baba Yaga. Hutch is the protagonist in Nobody, a new action thriller with Bob Odenkirk that looks amazing on the Red Band trailer below.

The high octane film is from Ilya Naishullerwho made the absolutely crazy first person shooter film Hardcore Henry. Some people wrongly dismissed this movie as an extended gimmick, but I thought the story worked on top of the non-stop action.

In Nobody, no one expects much from Hutch, a suburban father whose family will be disappointed in him if he doesn’t defend them after two thieves break into their home. Though Hutch is constantly overlooked and underestimated, the aftermath of the incident match his long-smoldering anger, triggering dormant instincts, and driving him on a brutal path that unearths dark secrets and deadly abilities. In a barrage of fists, gunshots, and screeching tires, Hutch must save his family from a dangerous enemy (Aleksey Serebryakov) and make sure no one will ever see him as Nobody again.

Connie Nielsen Co-stars as Hutch’s wife, while Odenkirk’s Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd plays his father and RZA plays his brother, whose hidden talents support Hutch in his quest for revenge.

I mentioned John Wick earlier, not just because it’s an easy comparison, but because John Wick Creator Derek Kolstad actually wrote the script for Nobody and the original co-director of John Wick David Leitch co-produced the film Kelly McCormick over their 87North banner. Braden Aftergood also produced for Eighty Two Films, while Odenkirk and Marc Provissiero produced for Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment. Kolstad Executive produced Nobody alongside Marc S. Fischer, Annie Marter and Tobey Maguire.

If John Wick hadn’t established a rich mythology yet, I would suggest a transition between this franchise and this one (which hopefully triggers a franchise), but let’s get down to no further. I don’t want to create unfair expectations for this film, although I suspect Naishuller would add to the hype as his muscular filmmaking doesn’t lack confidence.

Universal will release Nobody on February 26th, a week later than expected. We hope that by then a COVID-19 vaccine will be widely available as it looks like a theatrical experience if there ever was. But hey, I like my shots loud Thats only me.
