One Last Time, One Last Reason - Bloodier, Better Hitman Trailer
by Alex Billington
November 19, 2007
This is going to be the last time we run a clip or a trailer for Hitman, as it seems like every few days a new clip or trailer hits. This international trailer blew me away and I just needed to make it the last trailer. The film arrives in only three more days, on the 21st, and is still looking good. Despite the problems with Fox kicking out French director Xavier Gens, it will still be rated R and I'm still expecting it to kick ass. If you need one last reason to see Hitman or you need to watch another Hitman trailer one last time, then THIS is what you need to see. It's bloodier, it's better, and this trailer just kicks plenty of ass! Don't say I've warned you: Hitman should be fantastic and this trailer confirms it.
I screen Hitman early this week and will be reporting back with my review come Wednesday. I have high hopes, but that means they can easily be destroyed if it doesn't mean my high expectations. I'm hoping for the best, as I really want to see an all-out awesome action movie and I've got a feeling Hitman is definitely it!
Watch the last trailer for Hitman:
Hitman is directed by French filmmaker Xavier Gens, who also directed Frontière(s). The film is based off of a hit video game series for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 with a script by Skip Woods (Swordfish, 2009's G.I. Joe). Hitman arrives in theaters on Wednesday, November 21st. The latest poster is featured below.

Not the game but movie looks great, Like a hardcore balls to the wall james bond. I wish they kept at least the weaponary just like the game. Hitmans legendary custom silver .44 ballers man comon! At least get the most important detail right! I'll still go watch it, not for the story but just for action. The holiday thrill ride starts with this, the middle will be I am legend and to end it will be The golden compass or Wanted.

I'll be the first on this thread to say it. This movie will blow! I doubt it will be worth the bandwidth on bittorrent to download.

I just saw the movie and it was kick ass. It is the best video game adaptation out there. I normally hate Timothy, but for the character he played, he was flawless. I loved the games and I really think they did a great job with this...and its nice to finally see an R-rated action movie out of Fox, not the PG-13 crap they called Live Free or Die Hard.

Hate Timothy Olyphant! Didn't like him in "Catch and Release" nor "Gone in 60 Seconds"! When I see the "Hitman" poster and trailer, I can't help but to visualize Nick Cassavetes in "Face/Off" playing this character- he looks exactly like him. But being R-rated and one hell of a thrill ride as I've read, I just might check it out!

Just want to correct this article: THE GAMES WERE ON PC FIRST. yeah, the original hitman game came out only for the PC, and it ruled. Luckily, this trailer makes it seem like this movie is also going to rule, i disagree with grendel. but perhaps i'm being hopeful and naive...

Just once, I'd like to see a movie about a hitman that a) isn't being targeted by his own crew, or b) that doesn't have a conscience, and melts into the ending still living the dream.

I felt compelled to come here and inform you that this movie sucked. Bad. Boring, poorly written, and a predictable plot. I wanted to walk out. Not worth my $7 and would not be worth your bandwitdh either. Maybe watch it free on Encore next year.
