Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, The Hitman’s Bodyguard centers on a bodyguard who must protect a hitman. Sorry for the uninspired opening sentence, but the title of this film is pretty self-explanatory. And based on the latest trailer, it appears that our two “anti-heroes” get into a lot of trouble, shenanigans, and mayhem. Gary Oldman, who appeared with Reynolds in Criminal, pops ups in this film as the big bad.
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.
