First trailer for HITMAN: AGENT 47 attempts to revive the video game icon

A new Hitman movie brings Agent 47 back to the big screen

If you missed the 2007 movie adaptation of the Hitman video game series, and if the trailer is any indication, Hitman: Agent 47 might be an enjoyable on-screen introduction to the character for a new generation. I honestly thought the trailer was for a television series, so I didn’t watch it until a friend messaged expressing his excitement. Admittedly, I was never a huge fan of the games, and the first film was a bit silly, but Agent 47 looks like a Crank-style guilty pleasure sort of experience for fans of ridiculous action as well as the video game franchise.

Check out the first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47, read the plot synopsis, and take a look at the poster after the jump.

FUN STUFF: Brutal POWER RANGERS short film is an interesting adaptation worth the watch

Power/Rangers shows us an R-rated deboot of the Mighty Morphers

(Disclaimer: Saban Entertainment is on a crusade to have this thing removed from the Web, so watch it while you can! If it’s not available after the jump, you know why.)

(UPDATE: As expected, the YouTube video has been pulled, but it seems like Saban and producer Adi Shankar have made peace. The short has been re-uploaded to his page, and it is still available after the jump.)

No, I didn’t misspell “reboot” in that header, because that’s what director Joseph Kahn is calling his brutal Power/Rangers short film that’s been making the Web go a bit crazy today. If I’m being honest, the short felt more like an episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy than it did Power Rangers. Lots of blood, one or two drops of the f-bomb, and even a second of nudity have turned the kid’s show into something else entirely. On top of all the NSFW bits, we only get to see the whole team suited up in a short, choppy 20-second opening sequence. I wasn’t as blown away as the cinemascape seems to be, but the adaptation is worth the watch if you’ve ever been a fan of the Power Rangers.

Watch James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff take center stage in Power/Rangers after the jump.

Simon Pegg shoots people in Kill Me Three Times red band trailer

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

Simon Pegg is best known for his comedic chops, but the man can hold his own and look like a badass when it comes to action. That appears to be the case with his newest film Kill Me Three Times, and a brand new red band trailer for the movie has been making the rounds. Again, it’s a red band trailer, so it may not be safe for work, but you can give it a watch after the jump if you like living dangerously. Also, there’s a new poster being passed around. Check it out!

New In the Heart of the Sea trailer previews an epic adventure

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

I’m really looking forward to Ron Howard’s upcoming ocean epic In the Heart of the Sea starring Chris Hemsworth, and a new trailer for the film surfaced late last week. The movie is based on the voyage of the Essex, a ship and story that would later form the basis for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. You can watch the newest trailer after the jump.
