Guns Akimbo Official Trailer (2020) - Daniel Radcliffe.
In an alternate near future, an underground fight club and a criminal organization known as Skizm achieved massive popularity by live-streaming real death matches between criminals and psychos. Ordinary computer programmer Miles Lee Harris (Daniel Radcliffe), who gets his kicks by trolling online trolls, logs into Skizm's forum to insult viewers who turn murder into entertainment. Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the criminal kingpin and psychopath who runs Skizm, breaks into Miles' apartment with his henchmen Dane (Mark Rowley), Effie (Racheal Ofori), and Fuckface (Set Sjöstrand). After being beaten and drugged, Miles wakes up to find guns bloodily bolted into both of his hands. Miles learns that he has been forced to participate in Skizm by being pitted against Nix (Samara Weaving), the game's deadliest and craziest killer; she wants out but not after her last opponent, Miles.
Nix tracks down Miles, who tries to explain his unwanted predicament, but Nix merely shoots up his apartment; Miles escapes outside. After unsuccessfully attempting to recruit help from the police, Miles made it to the park for a rendezvous with his artist ex-girlfriend Nova Alexander (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), who tells Miles she doesn't want to get back together. When Miles reveals what is happening to him, Nova flees in fright. Nova reports the situation to Detective Degraves (Grant Bowler). Degraves has his partner Stanton (Edwin Wright) hack Nova's phone so they can track Miles. Miles gets temporary help from a vagrant named Glenjamin (Rhys Darby). Miles then goes to the office where he works so his friend Hadley (Milo Cawthorne) can hack the Skizm tracking malware on his phone.
Miles finally gets assertive by angrily pulling his guns after his continually condescending boss Zander (Richard Knowles) insults him. Nix then suddenly guns down Zander and starts shooting up the office. Miles escapes in a stolen car and Nix chases him on a motorcycle. Following a face-off where he again fails to reason with Nix, Miles calls Nova but sees Riktor kidnapping her. Miles calls 911 and leaves his phone in a junkyard to summon the police. He then inadvertently interrupts a drug deal between two rival gangs. Nix shows up and starts gunning down thugs while trying to get to Miles.
