These are grand days to be a fan of Sam Elliott — and is there really anyone who doesn’t brighten up when the Tombstone and Big Lebowski actor appears on screen? Regardless, Elliott received great reviews, and talk of a possible Oscar nomination, for his performance in A Star is Born and will soon be seen in the unforgettably-titled thriller The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (out Feb. 8).
Written and directed by Robert D. Krzykowski, the movie follows the epic adventures of an American legend of whom no one has ever heard. Since WWII, Calvin Barr (Elliott) has lived with the secret that he was responsible for the assassination of Adolf Hitler. Now, decades later, the U.S. government has called on him again for a new top-secret mission. Bigfoot has been living deep in the Canadian wilderness and is carrying a deadly plague that is now threatening to spread to the general population. Relying on the same skills he honed during the war, Calvin must set out to save the free world yet again.
The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot costars Aidan Turner, Ron Livingston, Caitlin FitzGerald, Larry Miller, and Ellar Coltrane. RLJE Films will release the film in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on Feb. 8.
