Lionsgate has given us the first red band teaser for the new action comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard. The film stars Ryan Reynolds as the world’s top bodyguard who must protect a hit man set to testify at the International Court of Justice. Samuel L. Jackson plays the hit man in question, and together they must get over their differences in order to make it to the trial on time. Hilarity ensues !! Check out the trailer below.
Written by Tom O’Connor and directed by Patrick Hughes,known for such films as The Expendables 3 (2014), Red Hill (2010) and Signs (2008) , The Hitmans Bodyguard also stars Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim de Almeida, and Sam Hazeldine.
The banter between the two leads is straight up hilarious, and I can’t help but think this is gonna be close to the dynamic between Reynolds and Brolin in Deadpool 2. Albeit on a whole other level. Just the interaction between Ryan and Sam looks to be worth the price of admission, but the action looks fast and fun as well. Some laws of gravity and human anatomy looks to have been left on the cutting room floor, but that is a good thing me thinks. No sign of Gary Oldman in the trailer , but somehow I think he will play a bad guy. Just a hunch. I could be wrong……
Also the use of Whitney Houston´s classic “I will always love you” from the 1992 film The Bodyguard is hysterically fitting. The Hitmans Bodyguard is set for release on August 18, 2017.
So what do you think ? Does this look like it could be a fun watch ? Let me know in the comment section. Im sure as all hell gonna check this one out.
