The first look at the poster for the movie The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot was recently released. The film has Sam Elliott as its main star.


The movie will have its world premiere at Fantasia Fest. The hand-painted poster, as seen on Twitter, features Elliott walking on a Swastika and Bigfoot’s paw print.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot is a story that follows a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr (Elliott). Decades after serving in WWII and assassinating Adolf Hitler he must now hunt down Bigfoot.

Barr was living a peaceful life in New England before being contacted by the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In the story, Bigfoot is said to be carrying a deadly plague and is hidden deep inside the Canadian wilderness.


Elliott is a co-producer of the film with independent filmmaker John Sayles. The filmmaker made a name for himself in the '80s with some acclaimed films including The Brother From Another Planet, Eight Men Out, City of Hope and, Lone Star.

The synopsis of the movie promises ‘a fantastical discourse on the melancholia of old age.’ The film intends to thrill with visual effects created by Douglas Trumbull.

He is one of the greatest names in the history of VFX.


Elliott’s movie is set to premiere next month at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal. The actor has seen a revival in his career in recent years.

He’s starred in some movies including I’ll See You in My Dreams and Grandma. Elliott currently stars in the Netflix comedy series The Ranch and next up is the indie feature The Hero.

It is set to be released by The Orchard this summer.
