Samuel L. Jackson says motherf@#$er a lot in the trailer, so it might be good. An August release date doesn’t bode well for the film (usually the kiss of death for movies released in the Summer). But a team-up of Ryan Reynolds and Jackson may be the glue holding this pic together.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard hits theaters on August 18th, 2017.
The world’s top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson). The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife. The film will be “hitting” your theatres on August 18.
