Entertainment reporter Sandro Monetti’s business take on this weekend’s four big movie releases.

HITMAN AGENT 47 – A sinister corporation plans to gain market share by creating an army of genetically engineered employees devoid of compassion but devoted to following orders. But an early test subject has other ideas and sets out to close down research and development on the scheme as violently as possible.

AMERICAN ULTRA – The CIA has problems with one of its employees, a drug addicted secret agent, and decides to terminate him…literally. But his employment training has been so good that he ends up killing every government assassin sent to dispatch him.
