Will it be second time lucky as the once popular video game Hitman gets another bite at the cherry as Rupert Friend shows why he’s the perfect killing machine in the UK trailer for Hitman:Agent 47.
The Xavier Gens 2007 version was a disaster so 8 years later new name, new cast and director the new trailer suggests this version will stay closer to it’s origins but will it be any better?
This like many upcoming films has had it’s fair share of set back with the most significant been the tragic sudden death of Paul Walker who was lined up to play the bald assassin. Some may look at the choice of the English actor Friend in the role but when you look at his role in Homeland he is an excellent choicegor the genetically modified hitman. For those looking for something for something crazy, off kilter over the top action Hitman:Agent 47 looks like it will deliver a fun ride especially if you throw away the awful script and go with the flow. What intrigues us to see a little bit more is Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto who character delivers a sense of mystery worth checking out
Hitman:Agent 47 will arrive in UK&Ireland on 27th August co-starring Ciarán Hinds, Hannah Ware and Thomas Kretschmann.
HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin (Rupert Friend) who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence.
His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
