I’m not a big gamer, so I have never played the Hitman games, but the first trailer for the latest adaptation has landed tonight and it doesn’t look too bad.
The main thing that caught my interest was the fact that Rupert Friend (Homeland, Starred Up) is playing the title role, but the actual trailer looks like good, yet rather tacky, fun.
Hitman: Agent 47 is directed by Aleksander Bach, and the cast includes Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann and Ciaran Hinds, and is produced by Chuck Gordon, Adrian Askarieh and Alex Young.
Hitman: Agent 47 will hit UK cinemas on 27th August 2015
HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin 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.
