Based on video game series Hitman, this is the second feature film after 2007’s Hitman starring Timothy Olyphant. Fox has released the first trailer of the movie that seems slick and stylish from the direction desk of Aleksander Bach.
Hitman: Agent 47 stars Rupert Friend (Homeland fame) as the principal professional assassin along with supporting cast Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, and Thomas Kretschmann among others. Just like the earlier film, the character Agent 47 works as a contract killer for an international contract agency.
In the video game series, ‘Agent 47’ has been assigned to kill a number of targets all over the world but upon his last mission for the same client, he discovers his origin as an engineered human killing machine. The film version will take the story forward. The movie is due for release on 28th August.
Known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck Agent 47 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.
