I don't know what it is about this movie, but it just has this "hate me" aura to it. From the start I felt like everyone has been trying to hate it, and it's working the other way where it's starting from the bottom trying to impress us and get us to like it. I'm completely sold now based on the latest trailer - it's damn exciting and looks damn good! This ran quite a bit during the "South Park" season premiere Wednesday night if you watched it, and if not, here is the new Hitman TV spot for your viewing pleasure. It's lengthy and it ramps up the energy quite a bit.
Here's another bit that should get you excited for Hitman. The director, French-born Xavier Gens, also had a film that he directed at the Toronto Film Festival called Frontiere(s) in the midnight madness section. I didn't have the chance to see it, but I did hear from Cinematical writer Scott Weinberg that he quite enjoyed the film. Here's a bit from his review: "Gens clearly has some talent for setting a mood, amping up some tension, and delivering all sorts of ultra-splattery madness."
Watch the TV spot for Hitman:
Hitman is directed by French filmmaker Xavier Gens and written by Swordfish writer Skip Woods. The film will hit theaters everywhere Thanksgiving week, November 21st. The second teaser poster is featured below as well.
