After the double whammy of seeing the teaser trailer for Hitman and the performance of it’s lead star Timothy Olyphant in Live Free or Die Hard my anticipation for the movie is just about zero at this point.
It’s a shame because they had a huge chance with this movie. This was one of those video games screaming out to be translated into a reserved and intelligent film. It could of been a cool Luc Besson style 90′s flick (Besson was on board this flick) but alas it looks like any other action movie… but just with a crappy lead actor.
I like the idea behind this French poster but I’m not sure they executed it very well. If it had been a little clearer font for the Hitman title it might have worked better but at this point I’m not sure how good at promoting the movie this poster will be.
Hitman opens in October from French director Xavier Gans.
