This is the most outlandish action movie trailer I've seen in a while. Hitman: Agent 47 seems to start out normal enough — Zachary Quinto explains how Rupert Friend's title character is engineered to be a killing machine while Friend stealthily assassinates people — and then it ramps up the crazy with a woman escaping being tied up in front of a jet engine and Quinto getting straight up stabbed in the chest, only to break the knife with his "sub-dermal titanium body armor." This movie is going to be completely nuts.
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 arrives on August 21st.
