Fresh off his Academy Awards Best Actor win for The Father, legendary actor Anthony Hopkins has a new film that is out today on Blu-ray and DVD. Called The Virtuoso, Hopkins is the boss of a professional assassin played by Anson Mount. With a mysterious new mission assigned to him, the assassin sets out to identify his target. The Virtuoso is available in select theaters and everywhere you buy or rent movies.
Check out the exclusive synopsis of the film:
Danger, deception, and murder descend upon a sleepy country town when a professional assassin (Anson Mount) accepts a new assignment from his enigmatic mentor and boss (Hopkins). Given only where and when along with a cryptic clue, the methodical hitman must identify his mysterious mark from among several possible targets, including a local sheriff (David Morse). Meanwhile, a chance encounter with an alluring woman (Abbie Cornish) at the town’s rustic diner threatens to derail his mission in this noir-style cloak-and-dagger thriller.
In the clip, which is titled “Deadly Cocktail,” the assassin mixes a deadly drink. “Viagra and nitroglycerin. The combination causes blood pressure to drop and can be fatal, and some sumatriptan which results in chest pain that mimics a heart attack. The threat of death from torture or a bullet isn’t nearly as effective as actually feeling death is imminent,” he says. There’s then a tense exchange between the assassin and the target.
