Hit Man Official Teaser Released on Netflix!

The Hit Man trailer is here, along with the official release date. Richard Linklater, the filmmaker of Boyhood and Before Sunrise, directed the action comedy based on a script co-written with actor Glen Powell.

It follows Gary Johnson (Powell), a professor and undercover police officer who pretends to be a hitman to catch those who want to engage his services, a challenging task that becomes even more problematic when he falls in love with a gorgeous client named Maddy Masters (Adria Arjona).

The trailer begins with a gorgeous scene where Johnson sits at a restaurant table wearing aviators and chatting with Maddy about pie. The rest of the video shows the sexual, dangerous web built around the two characters throughout the film.

The film follows Gary Johnson (Powell), a professor turned fake hitman who finds himself out of his mind after falling head over heels for a lady (Adria Arjona) who hires him for his alleged skills.

The teaser provides us some insight into their relationship and Gary’s remarkable disguise skills without revealing too much about the tragedy that awaits them when the film arrives on Netflix in June.

Film director Linklater takes a fairly traditional premise for a captivating noir and discovers the underlying dark humor & philosophical problems, resulting in a darkly thrilling movie that has you on the edge of your seats & gasping for air despite Linklater’s typical laid-back manner.

Inspired by a true story featured in the Texas Monthly, the movie is a meta-exploration of the skill of acting itself and has a lot going on with a hectic storyline, unlike most of Linklater’s works.
