The first full trailer for Aleksander Bach’s Hitman: Agent 47 left no doubt that it would be an insane, over-the-top action flick on par with the film’s videogame origins. It did, however, reveal quite a bit more of the plot than I would have liked, even if most of the film’s twists and turns remain unspoiled. That being said, I much prefer seeing short snippets of the assassin at work, like those seen in this newly released TV spot. We also have a new international poster for you to feast your eyes on.
Starring Rupert Friend in the title role, with Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Ciarán Hinds, and Thomas Kretschmann, Hitman: Agent 47 opens in theaters August 21st.
Watch the new TV spot below:
Here’s the official synopsis from 20th Century Fox:
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.
