If you associate Daniel Radcliffe only with the lovable wizard Harry Potter, the trailer of Imperium, which stars as the British actor as an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a group of neo-Nazis, will leave you stunned.

In the film, Radcliffe stars a young and idealistic FBI agent named Nate Foster who infiltrates a white supremacist group in order to foil a radical right-wing terrorist group’s attempt to make a dirty bomb.

In the trailer, Foster is recruited by a senior agent named Angela Zampino (Toni Collette) and asked to go undercover as a neo-Nazi group’s follower, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“I need an informant. Get in there and make a difference,” she says.

“I don’t have the skills for this,” Foster replies, adding, “I can’t even defend myself!”

Foster is heard saying in a voiceover, “Big things are coming,” indicating the terrorists group already makes their move.

Several scenes show Foster willing to shave his head, get a tattoo on his body and spend all his time with the white supremacist group.

He must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy.
