First Hitman Teaser Trailer Drops

June 26, 2007
We've talked about it and shown the first photo of Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47, and now here is the very first teaser trailer for Hitman, which is also playing in front of Live Free or Die Hard that opens tomorrow. June 27th. Quite a few other sites out there are being very pessimistic about this (namely SlashFilm and Solace), but I actually quite enjoyed it and am really interested now. What does everyone else think? Is it going to be another forgettable video game adaptation, or maybe something a bit better?

this guy seems too young and baby-faced for the part, but the movie looks decent nonetheless

Hit the game dead on? He has nothing to do with being part of the church and ministry, the only reason that was in the game was because he was found after he'd escaped the institute by the church and priest. He isnt a vigilante for the church, he's a cold hard killer and he looks too pussy

Timothy Olyphant is a very good actor - great in Deadwood, played sleaseballs, comedic misfits and will have no problem as a hitman from anywhere.

Id agree that Olyphant looks a bit young in some of the scenes, but is it only me or does the trailer come across as a bit needlessly high brow/preachy? The music, the tags lines, "created in darkness - protected by divinity"? I dont remember the VG character saying any hail mary's after strangeling a mark=)

I agree with you too, its a bit too preachy for my liking, he is a lot darker inside than that, you dont see it in the games, your right about that too. However, its going to be interesting to see how it develops and i still look forward to it as i'm sure and hope you all are 🙂

I was wondering when they would do the movie for one of my favorite game, anyway you guys did it anyway, please hurry and do the the next three sequels for the movie. I am already anticipating part 1, for any free ideas for the the Hitman 2: Silent Assassing, Contracts and Blood Money, please hit me up at me e-mail address. For casting I was thinking Jason Statham but the role would conflict with the transporter role, you know black suit and all. Two of the reason why I consider him fit for the role is that 1- he has a british acent, He is bald most of the time and his martial art skills is not too bad at all.

David Batesman is the only true choice for the part...

I support the notion that the Olyphant is a bit too young. However, I was supprised at how his facial structure does match the character's quite a bit better than say other actors such as Diesel or Statham. I couldn't say much for Batesman, because I can't seem to find any pirctures of the guy. One thing that I find lacking is that the makeup crew could have just given Olyphant an older look. And as far as martial arts/action talent, as we've already seen, can be mastered for the silver screen in a matter of months, i.e. The Matrix. But something tells me that this movie lacks the budget for such things. On the upside hitman was never much of a ninja anyway. As far as the story goes...of course the screen writer had to get carried away with creative liscense. The real question is: will the movie be worth watch, barring all ties to the game? I wouldn't get my hopes up, but I'll be in the theater regardless.
