Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a buddy comedy? Sure. Take our money now. Just when the buddy comedy genre was going to take its last breath, Jackson and Reynolds have come to save the day.
Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment has released the red band trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard. The film, which is scheduled for an August 18, 2017 release date features a lot of classic Samuel L. Jackson. He’s got one dirty mouth in this film.
Jackson plays the world’s most notorious hitmen in the movie, and Reynolds is the world’s top protection agent. He’s forced to protect Jackson’s character, which is a great struggle because they are enemies.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard also stars Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida and Kirsty Mitchell. It was directed by Patrick Hughes.
You can check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“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.”
