    Yeah, I was surprised too when I seen this on Apples Trailers site.

    There seems to be more & more video games that turn out into films nowadays. After seeing the trailer of Hitman, I am uncertain whether this is gonna be a good film or not.

    Watch the trailer yourselves & let me know what you guys think.

    The trailer of Hitman can be found here. (Quicktime player is required to view this trailer).

    I quote like the look of it, although i'm a little unsure of the casting.
    In my opinion Olyphant is a little limited with his acting versatility.

    I have never heard of that elephant guy, what's he been in?

    He's the evil porn producer in Girl Next Door and the really bad guy in Die Hard 4.0.

    He plays the same bad guy...jsut with a different hair cut and different job.

    They should have just got David Bateson to play him. Seeing as he provides 47's voice in the games. And the character is modelled on his appearance. And he's, y'know, an actor.

    Whether that could have saved the film from an exerable script is another matter entirely. Hollywood cant do decent video game adaptations and video games cant do decent Hollywood adaptations.

    That, my friend, would defy the logic of hollywood.
    I'll still end up going to see this film, but that's only becuase i've got an unlimited card for the cinema.

    I can't really argue with that one.

    I mean, from the scant details i've read of the Prince of Persia movie project, i've already blacklisted it.

    I think Olyphant is an aweful choice for 47, he doesnt look anything like him nor can he bring any new aspects to the character. My ideal 47 would be Jason Statham, he has it all the looks and the physical expression.

    Althoug he possesses one of the worst American accents i've ever heard i'd probably still pick Statham over Olyphant. That's how much i dislike Olyphant as an "actor".

    Yeah, i meant when he puts on an American accent. Watch the film The One wtih Jet Li and you can hear his godawful attempt at doing an american accent.
    It's laughable, really it is.


    That's what all the girls say... <_<

    The video games where phenomenal, so I have high hopes for the film. The problem with the translation to film is that most of the video game movies have sucked thoroughly.
     
  16. I saw the trailer dont know what the movie is going to be like, I'm not getting my hopes up...
