Release date of upcoming movie pushed back by a few months.
Movies based on video games are almost all universally bad but if, for some reason, you were anticipating the release of Hitman: Agent 47, which will be based on the original stealth video game series about assassinating targets, then there’s some news for you that you may not necessarily appreciate: the release of the movie, which was originally slated for February 2015, has now been pushed back. The good news is that it has been pushed back by only a few months, and the movie is still slated to release some time in Summer of 2015- specifically, August 28, 2015.
The movie will star Rupert Friend as Agent 47, the eponymous Hitman, which is an inspired casting choice; to those of you not in the know, Friend is well known for his performance in the hit Showtime TV drama series, Homeland.
Whether or not good casting choices point to a movie worth seeing remains to be seen. For now, I’d rather be hyped cautiously, if at all.
