Bad news for all American fans waiting to see “Child 44”. Lionsgate has announced that Child 44 will bow on April 17th, 2015. This thriller from Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) concerns a police officer in Stalinist Russia who becomes wrapped up in a missing children case where no one seems to be asking the right questions. Based on the British novel by Tom Rob Smith, the film’s got a loaded pedigree, including Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace (also starring with Hardy in the upcoming The Drop), Espinosa’s Snabba Cash star Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel and a mini-Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes reunion with Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke. Let’s see how this turns out for the international releases as IMDb lists the film for an October release in Sweden and a December release in France.
