Yep, Daniel Radcliffe has taken on some radical roles in recent years, from undercover white supremacist to flatulent corpse.

But this latest role, as love-sick office schlub Miles, who becomes embroiled in the world of an insanely violent online game, really is a departure for the former Harry Potter star.

The trailer for newcomer writer and director Jason Lei Howden's new action comedy Guns Akimbo has landed, and it's very much not safe for work. Or possibly home either.

One morning, after a night of casual trolling on the internet, Miles awakes to find that he's had guns bolted to his hands by a notorious gang called Skizm, and is the latest contestant in a city-wide gladiatorial death-match which is live-streamed around the world.

He's pitted against reigning champion Nix (Samara Weaving – soon to be appearing the Bill & Ted Face The Music), and if his failure to put on his own trousers is anything to go by, he's not going to last long.

Meanwhile, the love of his life Nova is kidnapped, so he plans to turn the tables on the gang and get her back, but for that, he'll need some help.

Like The Running Man meets Edward Scissorhands, there's also a cameo from the wonderful Rhys Darby.

It lands in the US on March 5, with a UK release to be confirmed.
