I’ve been waiting for a full trailer for ‘The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot’ for a while now. Aside from being one of the weirder sounding film titles in recent memory, I know that Sam Elliot, a man who is not only a great actor but who has one of the best voices in the history of Hollywood. Imagine being the man who assassinated Hitler during WWII and never being able to tell anyone? That’s the life that Sam Elliot’s character has lived. Now that he’s heading towards his final years, he’s being called back into service one more time. This time, the FBI and the RCMP want him to take out Bigfoot. We aren’t actually sure if this is the actual bigfoot, or if it is some other abstract concept in the wilderness that seems to be causing a major biohazard event. Either way, we are looking at a film that is going to let Sam Elliot shine in a way that he might never have been able to before. Along with that, it looks like the cinematography is absolutely stunning!
Sam Elliott (TOMBSTONE, ROAD HOUSE) stars as a legendary World War II veteran who many years ago assassinated Adolf Hitler – an incredible secret that he’s frustratingly unable to share with the world. One day, just as he’s coming to terms with rounding out his life, Calvin gets a visit from the FBI and The Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They need him to take out Bigfoot. This wondrous feature debut from writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski features visual effects by celebrated two-time Academy Award Winner Douglas Trumbull (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, BLADE RUNNER), who also co-produced alongside the great John Sayles (EIGHT MEN OUT) and Lucky McKee (THE WOMAN). A fantastical discourse on the melancholia of old age and a singular blast of entertaining wit, THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT also stars Aidan Turner (THE HOBBIT trilogy), Caitlin FitzGerald (Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”), and Ron Livingston (OFFICE SPACE).
