It has been 8 years since the last attempt at a Hitman film. That one…didn’t seem to do so well. Well there is another one on the way, Hitman: Agent 47, this time starring Rupert Friend as the bar-coded bald assassin. Twentieth Century Fox has just released a teaser trailer and it looks really rather good, and sports one of the grooviest soundtracks I have heard for a while. Judge for yourself below:
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.
Joining Rupert Friend (Starred Up) are Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Ciarán Hinds (Rome), Hannah Ware (Cop Out) and Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted) so there are enough talented people involved to hopefully make this a great watch.
Hitman: Agent 47 is due for release 27th August 2015.
