Daniel Radcliffe’s latest film, Guns Akimbo, is so far from the hallowed halls of Hogwarts, as the Harry Potter star has flippin’ pistols bolted to his hands.

Yes, we kid you not.

After the actor was seen filming the high-octane flick in Auckland in 2018, looking mighty stressed in his pants, with the guns not leaving his palms, as he was approached by police, now we know a little more as the trailer for the film was released today.

In his American accent, we see Daniel (who plays video game developer Miles) come up against Nix (Ready Or Not’s Samara Weaving) in a race against time and death.

It’s violent and bloody and we have no real idea how the eff this is going to turn out.

We’re talking two minutes of explosions, stunts and Daniel Radcliffe running through a city in monster slippers and a dressing gown.

Also a whole lot of x-rated language that would have Hermione Granger clutching at her pearls.

The flick (directed by Jason Lei Howden) is described as an ‘action comedy’ with Miles being a regular guy who gets caught up in a forced fight, gladiator-style, for a dark website, Skizm, that streams violence for viewers.

They’ve also thrown in a kidnapped ex-girlfriend he’s fighting for and all things considered, we can probably excuse the monster slippers, then.

Speaking of the release, Daniel told Variety: ‘I feel like it was such a fun and exciting script, it had this insane idea in the middle of it that was really fully explored.

‘It’s not just a device for crazy fight scenes, having guns for hands. It’s also a device for a lot of physical comedy that I really enjoyed. “How do you dress yourself, how do you pick up your phone, how do you go through life,” which [Jason] practiced very early on.’

Daniel added he got to grips with how he’d work with guns for hands, as he said: ‘I got water pistols and taped them to my hands and I spent a day just going around my flat, [just asking] “How do I go to the toilet?”’

Hogwarts is but a memory.

Guns Akimbo is in UK cinemas soon.
