New Hitman poster

I'm not quite sure what to make of HITMAN. Parts of what I've seen look really great and then other parts have me a little reserved. It's strange that at this point, I haven't heard any murmurs from any research screenings, which means they haven't had any yet or I've got shit in my ears. I was really hoping for a look at this film at Comic-Con but the ALIENS VS. PREDATOR situation nixed the Fox panel and we were left with nothing but the trailers. Today Latino Review has a first look at the poster and it's pretty much what you'd expect. Timothy Olyphant, a healthy dosage of black and the classic "Hitman" pose. It doesn't really say much about the movie other than it aims to remain quasi-faithful to the game material. I guess the big gripe against the film at this point is whether Olyphant owns the role of Agent 47 or if he's a little too babyfaced to pull it off. So here's my call: anyone out there know more about this? Let's get the buzz rolling...

That's a pretty fucking sweet poster. I still don't know if Olyphant's got the right look for 47, but he's a damn fine actor and deserves some time in the spotlight, so I'll be there opening night.

Awesome poster, perfectly captures the essence of the game art. I don't really know if it'll be any good or not. But please people, stop saying Jason Statham is right for this... He's a british thug. Don't get me wrong, an entertaining British thug, but just because someone's bald doesn't mean they're right for every bald part ever.

I agree about the question whether or not he's gonna own the role. For now in the trailer he looks too much like he's supposed to have hair. Boldness looks a little odd on him.

not sure what to think

I think Olyphant is a great actor, but don't know if he's a good choice for Hitman.
Really, anyone other than Statham doesn't seem like a good choice. Too bad. But I might see it JUST for Olyphant.

That is essentially the art from the game with Olyphant photoshopped in. Eh.

Looks rather cartoonish. Wouldn't surprise me if they had just slapped Olyphant's face onto some concept design.
