Hitman: Agent 47 Will Offer More on Blu-ray
In 2007, Hollywood made its first attempt to bring the video game series Hitman to the big screen but couldn't convince fans and didn't impress at the box office, either. 8 years later, however, 20th Century Fox seemed to think that the dust had settled enough to give it another shot. Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend is the result and it managed to undercut its predecessor's underwhelming results both critic- and box office-wise easily. It is an outright flop.
Time to look at the possibilities to recoup some more money from that and that inevitably leads to the home video release. In an interview with Collider, the producer says that they have lots of unused material and it's not decided whether the Blu-ray will feature an Extended Cut of the movie or just deleted scenes. Either way, the Blu-ray will have more. Maybe that is interesting to the audience that didn't want to go to cinemas. For what it's worth: the first Hitman film went with an Unrated Cut to catch additional buyers (see comparison).
