I can't say I was much of a Potterhead, but from what I saw of the Harry Potter movies, the magical young title character wouldn't recognize the man he's become in his new movie IMPERIUM, in which star Daniel Radcliffe plays a FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a white supremacist group.
Needless to say, in the age of #BlackLifeMatters and Donald Trump (yes, I now have to put those two together as one is threatening to f**k the other one up), this film will likely enrage think-piecers everywhere. At its best, it will get everyone talking about it. So, PR win.
Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe), a young, idealistic FBI agent, goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. The bright up-and-coming analyst must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy. Inspired by real events, IMPERIUM stars Daniel Radcliffe, Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, with Nestor Carbonell, Burn Gorman and Sam Trammell and will be released by Lionsgate Premiere in theaters and on demand August 19.
