Movie Trailer: Timothy Olyphant in Hitman

The teaser trailer for the Timothy Olyphant starrer “Hitman” has arrived online. The movie is based on the popular videogame of the same name, about a killer who, well, kills people. The teaser itself will show up in front of “Live Free or Die Hard”, which also co-stars Olyphant as the villain of the piece. The trailer looks okay, very moody and it seems to be giving off some kind of mythical vibe, one of those, “it’s in the prophecies!” sort of movies, which I never liked, mostly because they invariably get generic and cliche-ridden.

A gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 (Olyphant) is ensnared in a political conspiracy, which finds him pursued by both Interpol and the Russian military as he treks across Eastern Europe, and hired by a group known as “The Agency” to kill targets for cash.

“Hitman” stars Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott, Robert Knepper, Olga Kurylenko, and is directed by Xavier Gens.

The hitman takes aim October 12th, 2007.
