I love me some Sam Elliot. I also love me some pulpy, ridiculous, over-the-top narratives that really lean into the odd. Oh, wait, there’s a movie that combines those two loves of mine? My lucky stars, today is my day. Today, Collider debuted a poster for the amazing-looking film, The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot, and man, is it everything I want out of life right now.
The film is set to debut at Fantasia Film Festival 2018 in Montreal next month, and is directed by Robert D. Kryzkowski. It stars Aidan Turner, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Larry Miller, and Ron Livingston.
Below is the official synopsis for The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then Bigfoot:
“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).”
So I guess real question here is, on a scale of 1-10, would you put yourself at a 10 or 11 in terms of how excited you are for this gem of a movie? More importantly, what kind of style and do you expect from something with that kind of a title and poster? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
