Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer Hits

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. wasn't the only spy trailer to debut yesterday. But it was so good that I didn't want to step on it at all by posting this one then, too. Fox also released the first trailer for their reboot of their 2007 videogame-based neo-Eurospy movie Hitman (review here), Hitman: Agent 47. Homeland's Rupert Friend takes over for Timothy Olyphant as the bald and barcoded titular assassin Agent 47, and Zachary Quinto (24), Thomas Kretschmann (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Ciaran Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) round out the cast. It looks... okay (even if it brazenly cribs one of its only lines of dialogue from Alan Moore's Watchmen)... but it certainly suffers from being released on the same day as something as awesome as Warner Bros.' U.N.C.L.E. trailer. Bad timing, Fox. But I'm sure I'll still check out the movie when it opens in August. (After I see U.N.C.L.E., anyway. And Mission: Impossible 5...)
