First Trailer Released for Sam Elliott's The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot
This film sounds fairly self-explanatory, doesn't it?
The first official trailer for The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot was recently released and it looks like a great time. The film stars veteran actor Sam Elliott (Tombstone, The Quick and the Dead, Ghost Rider) as World War II veteran Calvin Barr, a man who secretly assassinated Adolf Hitler and is now recruited by the U.S. government to kill an equally infamous target: Bigfoot.
While the title and premise sound pretty out there, based on this trailer it is easy to see the film is taking itself very seriously and looks damn entertaining. The official plot synopsis can be read below.
Since WWII, Calvin Barr has lived with the secret that he was responsible for the assassination of Adolf Hitler. Now, decades later, the US government has called on him again for a new top-secret mission. Bigfoot has been living deep in the Canadian wilderness and carrying a deadly plague that is now threatening to spread to the general population. Relying on the same skills that he honed during the war, Calvin must set out to save the free world yet again.
The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot was written, directed, and produced by Robert D. Krzykowski (co-producer of 2011's The Woman) and will also star Aidan Turner (Kíli from The Hobbit trilogy), Ron Livingston (Office Space, The Conjuring), Sean Bridgers (HBO's Deadwood, The Woman), and Caitlin FitzGerald (Showtime's Masters of Sex). The film was first showcased last year at the Fantasia film festival but is set for a general release on February 8th.
