Watch the trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 ... and then watch him in a snuff film

Sure, you could watch the above trailer for Hitman: Agent 47, the reboot of of 2007's Timothy Olyphant vehicle that now stars Rupert Friend and Zachary Quinto. There's nothing stopping you from doing that. It's ... well, it's frankly a little bland (or as bland as a trailer that features an exploding helicopter can be). Sure, he puts on disguises (very Hitman) but would it kill him to get a closer head shave?

In any case, once the sense of heart-pounding malaise the trailer left you with subsides, we'd invite you to watch the batshit crazy companion piece below, which features Agent 47 snuffing out YouTube stars in cold blood with no sense of irony or humor. Because in today's climate, when isn't gun violence against innocents a real rib-tickler?

Frankly, if this gets you excited to see this movie (which premieres Aug. 28), not only should you not be allowed to see it, you should probably be put on some sort of government list. Watch it quick before 20th Century Fox comes to its senses and pulls it.
