Rupert Friend’s Agent 47 is a riddle to everyone around him.

Fox has released the action-laden second trailer for “Hitman: Agent 47,” its upcoming video game adaptation starring “Homeland” actor Friend as a genetically engineered assassin. It’s a sequel to 2007’s “Hitman,” which starred Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott and Olga Kurylenko.

High-speed car chases, gunplay and helicopters dominate the trailer, which reveals that the killer agent is protecting a woman named Katia (Hannah Ware) from a corporation that wants to use her DNA to create more assassins.

Zachary Quinto, Thomas Kretschmann and Ciaran Hinds also star in the film, directed by Aleksander Bach.

The movie hits theaters on August 21.
