    Looks like a EF 500mm f/4.5 L to me... the title of the movie is the Jackal if I'm not wrong.

    here's a interesting piece of movie trivia - In this scene where Bruce Willis tests the gun and kills Jack Black, there's some close-ups of the Canon lense as it auto-focuses on its subject. In these close-ups you can see the Auto/Manula switch on the lens is set to manual. Obviously, in this mode the lens AF wouldn't work so the lens was probably being manually focussed by a off-camera operator.
