Hitman: Agent 47 looks anything but stealthy


Videogame movies, man
Feb 11
The tone of this trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 matches my playstyle for the game series, which is to go in quietly only to screw up repeatedly and end up having to trade bullets with everyone. While I could have done without ... read

First look at Agent 47 in the new Hitman film


It's Homeland's Rupert Friend
Feb 19
2007's Hitman movie wasn't awful. In fact, I'd be willing to believe that people were even fans of the adaptation. But there's certainly plenty of room for improvement and here's hoping Agent 47 delivers where the prior movie... read

Yes, *that* Paul Walker

It's been an unusually long time since I've been able to use the word "reboot" here, but with the recent Hitman Absolution still fresh on our minds, it's only natural that the term would come up in relation to the popular ste... read

Eat your heart out Timothy Olyphant

So I'm a huge fan of Timothy Olyphant (basically Justified above all else), but the Hitman movie left a lot to be desired. Enter this neat little fan video, directed and edited by Michael Shanks, that hi... read

With Far Cry 3 less than a month away, the freddiew team of Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch fuel the hype machine with an appropriate homage. A sunny, beach-side getaway in Belize is too trivial for ol' Mr. Wong. He needs a... read

This Hitman: Absolution trailer is coming for you


Dec 10
It's been a long time coming for Hitman: Absolution. This trailer for the game doesn't do much other than remind us that Agent 47 is very skilled at his job, but that's okay.
