Hitman: Agent 47 | Trailer 2

Hitman: Agent 47 | Trailer 2

Rupert Friend stars in this Hitman reboot. High on action, dialogue is seemingly irrelevant.

Playing the lead as a character not a million miles removed from the role he played in Homeland, Rupert Friend is being hunted for his unique set of skills (note that unique set of skills… he’s not Liam Neeson). As a genetically engineered killing machine gifted heightened strength, speed, stamina and intelligence he must face his origins whilst evading a mega-corporation intent on unlocking the secret to his abilities in order to create an army of assassins.

With precise action set pieces and plenty of spectacle Hitman: Agent 47 looks like a thrilling cinematic ride but if the trailer is anything to go by it certainly won’t stand out for it’s dialogue which leaves a lot to be desired.

Hannah Ware and Zachary Quinto also star. Hitman: Agent 47 is in cinemas from August 21st in the U.S with a U.K release a week later.

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.
