‘The Virtuoso’ Trailer: A Small Town Welcomes Danger, Deception, and Murder

Lionsgate has released an official trailer for The Virtuoso, an upcoming thriller starring Anthony Hopkins and Anson Mount.

Yup, this is definitely one of those movies that looks so generic even the studio knew to dump it on rental services and home video as soon as possible. I’d never pay to see this in theaters, but I might check it out some day on a streaming service. I do love a good thriller even if it is a paint-by-numbers one.

Side note: how much do you think they paid Anthony Hopkins to be in this? The man deserves better.

Plot Synopsis:

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 (Oscar winner Anthony 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.

The Virtuoso hits theaters and on-demand April 30, 2021. It heads to Blu-ray and DVD on May 4, 2021.
