In 2018, an image of Daniel Radcliffe in boxers and slippers, holding two guns, went viral, with plenty of people captioning it to reflect either their own lives or a downturn in fortune for Harry Potter, who Radcliffe played across eight films.

Now, a first trailer for the film this image is from has been released. The film is Guns Akimbo by New Zealand director Jason Lei Howden (Deathgasm). Howden also previously worked as a visual effects specialist on movies like The Avengers and War for the Planet of the Apes.
Radcliffe plays Miles Harris, a sadsack video game developer who is drawn into a real-life online deathmatch game called Skizm after being awful in the game’s comment section. The film also stars Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) as Nix, the game’s hotshot star.
The trailer below is decidedly NSFW, so be careful where you watch it.
As it turns out, those guns we’ve been laughing at all this time are literally bolted onto Radcliffe’s character’s hands. Ouch.
The film is scheduled to release in the US on February 28, 2020.
