The Hitman’s Bodyguard red-band trailer has been released and it’s looking like one of the most anticipated buddy cop actioners we’ve seen in a while. The film follows the world’s top protection agent [Ryan Reynolds] who 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 action comedy produced by Summit Entertainment is directed by The Expendables 3 helmer Patrick Hughes. The chemistry between Reynolds and Jackson will undoubtedly sell this movie to audiences and rightfully so.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard will be “hitting” theatres in August.
