Not too long ago I revisited Hitman, starring Timothy Olyphant and I honestly enjoyed the film. It’s definitely not the best video game adaptation, but it gets the job done and is a bloody good time in the process.
Now, Fox is rebooting the could-have-been franchise with Hitman: Agent 47 and it comes out in August.
Hype has been non-existent so far, which is why they’ve gone ahead and pumped out an extended second trailer for the film, which spells the plot out and gives away a lot of the action.
I’m still not sure what I think about this one just yet, especially without knowing just how violent and faithful the filmmakers are willing to go to do the video game justice.
Will this be a bad ass R-rated assassin film or a tame PG-13 approach to a franchise geared mostly towards a mature audience?
Check out the trailer and let us know your thoughts.
