Hit Man: Release date, trailer, cast, plot & more

Here is all the information you need to know about Hit Man, including the cast, plot, release date, and trailer, since it is the next film directed by Richard Linklater.

Hit Man is a new comedy from the filmmaker of Dazed and Confused, Before Sunset, and School of Rock. It has not yet been officially released to the public.

The action-comedy, which is based on a real incident from a 2001 Skip Hollandsworth piece of the same name in Texas Monthly magazine, will be available for streaming sooner than fans may have anticipated according to Netflix.

Here is all the information you need to know about Hit Man, from the movie’s plot to its impending release date.

Does Hit Man have a release date?

Hit Man comes to Netflix on June 7, 2024, following a limited theatrical run.

On September 5, 2023, the film made its international debut at the 80th Venice International Film Festival. It then went on to play at Sundance and the London Film Festival.

Because of this, Hit Man presently has 72 reviews and a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Police scenes are light enough to be funny, screwball sequences are dark enough to keep you on the edge of your seat, and Powell… is obviously elated to be handling such twisty material,” commented Shirley Li of The Atlantic.

Does Hit Man have a trailer?

The first teaser trailer for Hit Man was released on January 22, 2024. Catch it in full below:

Hit Man cast: Who’s in it?

The cast of Hit Man includes:

  • Glen Powell as Gary Johnson
  • Adria Arjona as Maddy Masters
  • Austin Amelio as Jasper
  • Retta as a police officer Gary works for
  • Sanjay Rao as a police officer Gary works for
  • Evan Holtzman as Ray Masters
  • Molly Bernard
  • Mike Markoff

Regarding co-writing the film with Powell, director Richard Linklater stated to Deadline, “It didn’t start off that way.” Let’s make a movie, I’m the writer/director and he’s the actor, it was like. However, during the epidemic, we were chatting on the phone. He was either traveling for work or with his family when I am at my library. We spoke endlessly. I simply kind of said, “You know what? We’ve already started collaborating on this. Pages will begin to arrive from me, and you will reply with them. It seemed right.

What is Hit Man about?

The official synopsis for the movie reads: “A professor moonlighting as a hit man of sorts for his city police department descends into dangerous, dubious territory when he finds himself attracted to a woman who enlists his services.”

In order to assist a desperate lady fleeing an abusive husband, professional “killer” Gary Johnson (Powell) deviates from company policy. However, he soon finds himself falling in love with her.

We gave the picture four stars and stated: “Hit Man is up there in the ranks among the films that are tackling the thorny genre of thriller in 2023.”

“Linklater’s latest is a guaranteed good time, packed with unique and empathetic characters and narrative just about original enough to take audiences someplace new. Chances are though, these audiences might forget all about it in a month or two.”
