Why would the world's most wanted and most dangerous hitman need the services of a "triple-A-rated executive protection agent"? Well, in a dangerous world, the simple answer is that "everyone needs a bodyguard." But if you think that's just plain silly -- well, you're not alone in thinking that way. Samuel L. Jackson also thinks the idea is a motherf--king joke!
Check out the profanity-filled first trailer for "The Hitman's Bodyguard," an action comedy, in which Ryan Reynolds plays a highly-trained bodyguard who's been hired to protect the world's most notorious hitman (played by Samuel L. Jackson). The thing is, if indeed someone is out to kill him, Jackson isn't entirely convinced that Reynolds is the right man for the job.
Directed by Australian action filmmaker Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3, Red Hill) and co-starring Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek, "The Hitman's Bodyguard" will be arriving in theaters on August 18th.
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.
