Why is Hitman Agent 47 bald

Target captured: all against one on the new "Hitman - Agent 47" poster

Unsurprisingly, the first trailer came across Hitman - Agent 47 to a divided echo. Some were really impressed, others criticized the action, which left the stealth aspect of video games by the wayside. And with Rupert Friend (Pride and Prejudice) as the Olyphant successors, not all of them have warmed up yet.

We have to take it as it comes. After all, everyone is free to decide whether to start with the September 3 go to the cinema or not. 20th Century Fox tries to persuade and gives Hitman - Agent 47 a new international poster on which Agent 47 is literally besieged while his red tie blows teasingly around the corner. Not shown, but also included are Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong), CiarĂ¡n Hinds (John Carter - Between Two Worlds) and Dan Bakkedahl (Veep - The Vice President).

The title hero - or rather title antihero - by Hitman - Agent 47 is an elite hit man genetically engineered to be the perfect killing machine known only by the last two digits of the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the result of decades of research and 46 previous clone agents that have given him unparalleled strength, speed, endurance and intelligence. His latest goal: a mega-corporation that wants to find out the secret of its past in order to create an army of killers whose strength is even greater than its own. Together with a young woman (Hannah Ware, Oldboy), who could be the key to defeating her mighty enemies, Agent 47 makes startling revelations about his own origins and fights his deadliest opponent.
