The main character is a young blonde (almost white) haired man who I think traveled from the future. He lands his craft near a hilly area by a small village. I think he has special superhuman powers and maybe a laser gun. It may have been only a TV movie. Anyone remember it?
Seeing as no one else seems to have an answer I'll move this from the comments to the answers. I think this might be The Boy from Space, although its not a 100% fit. It was an educational series made in the mid 1970's that was then either expanded or refilmed (not sure exactly which) in about 1980. It features a tall blond character who is the villain, a blond child, referred to as Peep Peep who is the boy from space and the villain does indeed have a laser gun. Powers? Sadly I don't recall. Here are links to a clip on youtube and also the IMDB page for the Boy from Space. Does it ring any bells?
Here is the link to the IMDB page although there is not much information there. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0380093/
This was part of a series called Look and Read on the BBC and there was an accompanying book for the series. It is available on DVD and this link about the DVD mentions that the series was also edited into a feature length presentation which may be why you remember it as a film.
Finally there is a more detailed description of the story here. I don't own the DVD so can't say how accurate it is but it describes a space ship from Mars crashing on earth, a ray gun and a blond "thin man". No time travel but the spaceship crash may be what you remember. http://aliens.wikia.com/wiki/%27The_Boy_From_Space%27_Aliens
