A new trailer has arrived for "Hitman: Agent 47" that reveals a good deal more about the action spy thriller -- including that Rupert Friend's title character won't be the only genetically engineered assassin on the screen.
Directed by Aleksander Bach, the franchise reboot finds Agent 47 targeting a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of his past to create an army of killers. Zachary Quinto plays John Smith, who apparently aims to stop him by tracking down the one man who knows his weakness: the creator of the Agent program.
Opening Aug. 28, "Hitman: Agent 47" also stars Hannah Ware, Ciarán Hinds and Thomas Kretschmann.
HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones -- endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
