If you were in any doubt what the new rebooted Hitman movie is actually going to be about, then the new poster will explain everything.
Hitman: Agent 47, which now sees the decidedly un-violent sounding Rupert Friend in the lead role, has debuted a poster which shows the genetically modified assassin surrounded by the tools of his trade. Check it out below:
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.
Hitman: Agent 47 is currently due to open in theaters on August 28.
