I prefer him as a farting corpse.

I’ve really enjoyed the trajectory Daniel Radcliffe’s career has taken since the Harry Potter franchise. He’s been taking on a lot interesting and unique roles, and has managed to break free from his HP persona. Hell, I associate him with a corpse now more than I do Harry Potter. And I’m sure that’ll change once again once I seem him go undercover in Imperium.

Which is what I’m actually supposed to be writing about. So yeah, Imperium. Radcliffe is an FBI agent who goes under cover to infiltrate a group of white supremacists, and it doesn’t look like it leads to promising results.The trailer looks pretty intense, check it out:

Well, thinks are looking bleak for poor ole Daniel, as the white supremacists seem to be suspicious of him right from the get go. He looks extremely uncomfortable fitting in with these Neo-Nazis, and things are already looking to go south from the get go.

Personally, I think the film looks interesting as hell, and I’m getting some American History X vibes from it. Like I mentioned before, I’m just excited to see Daniel Radcliffe take on these new and uncharacteristic roles. He seems to be avoiding big ticket, cash in roles, instead accepting interesting and challenging roles. If that means more films like the fantastic Swiss Army Man, then I’m all for that.

We’ll all be able to see how Radcliffe navigates the world of white supremacy when the film releases in theaters and On Demand August 19th. Here’s the synopsis:

Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe), a young, idealistic FBI agent, goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. The bright up-and-coming analyst must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy. Inspired by real events, IMPERIUM stars Daniel Radcliffe, Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, with Nestor Carbonell, Burn Gorman and Sam Trammell and will be released by Lionsgate Premiere in theaters and On Demand August 19.
