The initial teaser and poster gave us a huge dose of Whitney Houston, as it playfully referenced The Bodyguard which is 25 years old this year.
Now Lionsgate have ever so kindly released the main UK trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring the mischievous and foul-mouthed double act of Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Samuel L.Jackson (Django Unchained).
In this latest sneak-peek, we get further glimpses of the killer chemistry between the two including their own ‘Sister Act’ moment in a van full of nuns, along with Gary Oldman hamming it up as the film’s big bad Vladislav Dukhovich.
Directed by The Expendables 3’s Patrick Hughes, The Hitman’s Bodyguard is released across the UK on 18th August 2017.
‘THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD is an action comedy about the world’s top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) and his new client: a notorious hitman (Samuel L. Jackson). They’ve been on opposite ends of a bullet for years but now must come together for 24 hours to get from England to The Hague. The only thing standing in their way is the murderous dictator (Gary Oldman) who uses his power to create trouble for the pair at every stop along their way.’
