This new action thriller has the greatest movie title of all time

Rory Cashin


We already feel pretty spoiled in 2018, what with The Greatest Movie Of All Time being released this August, and now THIS.

Starring Sam Elliott (The Big Lebowski, Road House), Ron Livingston (Office Space, The Conjuring), Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters Of Sex, It’s Complicated), Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood, The Circle) and Ireland’s own home-grown hunk Aidan Turner (Poldark, The Hobbit), the movie is written and directed by newcomer Robert D. Krzykowski, with the visual effects being supplied by Oscar-winner Douglas Trumbull (2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner).

The plot? Well…

Calvin Barr (that’ll be Sam Elliott) 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.

But what could you possibly title a movie with such an amazing plot?

Are you ready?

Okay. Here it is.

The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot.

That is a lot to take in.

It is unfortunate that there are no Oscars for titles, but if there were…

There’s no set release date for the movie in Irish cinemas yet, but even this poster is enough to tide us over until then.
