Review: Hitman: Agent 47

PLOT: An assassin trained as part of a government experiment finds himself protecting the daughter of one of the men who created him.

Exclusive: Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto & Hannah Ware talk Hitman: Agent 47

  Hard as it is to believe, it has almost been eight whole years since we last saw a HITMAN film. In 2007, 20th Century Fox attempted to kickstart a film franchise based on the popular video game about a lethal cloned assassin. While the film (which went through much post-production tinkering) wasn't a resounding bomb, its $100 million worldwide gross wasn't enough to merit a follow-up....

The new trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 looks much better than the first one

Four months ago , we got the first trailer for HITMAN: AGENT 47 which looked like a cut-rate action movie right out of Luc Besson 's wheelhouse. Rupert Friend , cast to replace the late Paul Walker , seemed like an odd choice for the lead role in what appeared to have little connection to the video game that inspired it. While the first film with Timothy Olyphant was no...

Action-packed first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend

The trailer starts a...
