The lovely folks at Lionsgate has released the first UK trailer for the upcoming movie, THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. Take a look at the footage in the video player above.
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.
THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD also stars Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell, and Richard E. Grant.
The film was directed by Patrick Hughes from a screenplay by Tom O’Connor. What do you think of the first UK trailer?
