Here's the trailer for the "Hitman" remake you didn't know you needed. Rupert Friend, who is mostly known for his role on "Homeland" and films like "The Young Victoria" and "Pride & Prejudice," stars in "Hitman: Agent 47" as a bald, genetically engineered assassin known only as, you guessed it, Agent 47. (Friend replaced Paul Walker after Walker's untimely death in November 2013.) Timothy Olyphant starred in the original "Hitman," based on the video game, way before he hit it big as Raylan Givens on "Justified." Which is probably for the best, really.
Naturally, some baddies want to harness Agent 47's deadly talents and create a veritable army of incredibly scary assassins. Sounds like a bad idea! Luckily, a mysterious man named John Smith is here to make sure that doesn't happen, with help from a woman whose father is behind all this genetic engineering craziness.
Hannah Ware appears as a woman who holds the answer to Agent 47's past, alongside Zachary Quinto, Ciarán Hinds, and Thomas Kretschmann. There seems to be a lot of "Matrix"-style slow-mo bullet time, shooting, car chases, and what looks like a helicopter that somehow crashed into an office. What the heck?
"Hitman: Agent 47" comes out August 28, 2015.
