Hitman: Agent 47, directed by Aleksander Bach, opens today.

The film centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research, and forty-six earlier Agent clones, endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47's past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.

Hitman: Agent 47 stars Rupert Friend as Agent 47, Hannah Ware as Katia van Dees, Zachary Quinto as John Smith, Ciarán Hinds and Thomas Kretschmann as Le Clerq.

ILM is the main VFX provider under the supervision of Samir Hoon. Infinite Studios, Territory Studio and Mokko Studio contributed as well.
