    The first trailer for "Hitman: Agent 47" was unloaded at Comic-Con.

    Footage from the video game adaption starring "Homeland" co-star Rupert Friend as a genetically engineered assassin debuted Friday at the pop-culture convention.

    Friend wasn't present to show off the trailer because he's shooting the next season of "Homeland" in South Africa, but his "Agent 47" co-stars Hannah Ware and Zachary Quinto were on hand for the San Diego unveiling.

    Quinto, the "Star Trek" and "American Horror Story" star, is playing a mysterious character in the movie.

    "We saw bits and pieces in Berlin and Singapore when we were shooting it, but to actually see it put together like that is epic," Quinto said of the trailer.

    The fast-paced preview began with the follicly challenged Agent 47 escaping from handcuffs in an interrogation room. Other scenes featured a car chase sequence filled with rope darts and a scantily clad Ware dipping into a rooftop pool.

    Quinto was mum about the details on his character named John Smith, who he noted is more complicated in the film than he was in the third-person game series.

    "The character is more complicated than the name," teased Quinto.
