Hit Man trailer: Romance gets in the way of Glen Powell's fake hitman scheme

Netflix unveiled the trailer for Glen Powell's Hit Man on Friday. The film is helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Richard Linklater and is written by him, along with Powell. Adria Arjona also stars as the lead alongside Powell. 

Hit Man tells the story of an undercover Houston police officer who disguised himself as a hitman to resolve some criminal offence. While committed to his duty, he encounters a woman who needs help. Circumstances force him to be at both ends of being a police officer and a hitman. 

The trailer shows Powell undergoing several getup changes to solve crimes seamlessly and brilliantly. However, his game is toppled by a woman he falls for, who might be a criminal herself. 

Billed as an action comedy, Hit Man has a script based on the Texas Monthly magazine article by Skip Hollandsworth. Powell plays the role of the police officer/ hitman, while Adria Arjona essays the women he encounters. Hit Man also features Retta, Austin Amelio, and Molly Bernard in supporting roles.

Netflix is also giving the film a limited theatrical release on the same day as the digital premiere. The film will premiere on the streamer on June 7.
