Full US Trailers for 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' with Jackson & Reynolds
"You won't last one hour without me!" Lionsgate has debuted the second official US trailer for the summer comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard, about the world's best bodyguard assigned to protect a hitman who has been killing his clients all along. This wacky action comedy stars Ryan Reynolds as the world's top bodyguard who is hired to protect a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice. Samuel L. Jackson plays the notorious hit man, and they must get over their differences in order to make it to the trial on time. Also starring Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim de Almeida, and Sam Hazeldine. This full trailer finally spends time setting up the story and features lots of new footage that we haven't seen at all yet, and it still looks hilarious. Tons of action packed into this preview and I'm in.
Here's the second official US trailer for Patrick Hughes' The Hitman's Bodyguard, found on YouTube:
Here's the alternate red band trailer for Patrick Hughes' The Hitman's Bodyguard, also on YouTube:
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 an outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous 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. The Hitman's Bodyguard is directed by Australian filmmaker Patrick Hughes, of the films Red Hill and The Expendables 3, as well as a few shorts. The screenplay is written by Tom O'Connor (Fire with Fire). Lionsgate opens The Hitman's Bodyguard in theaters starting August 18th this summer. Thoughts?

Salma Hayek looks ok in this. At least ... But also a lot of mindless fun. Nothing to be overtly excited ...

Well at least you’re over the disrespect toward that old dead, junkie Whitney Huston.

Well, I did indeed forget about that. I guess, this trailer is not too obvious in that respect. As for, as you say, 'old dead, junkie Whitney Houston', I must say, I never followed her career during her last years, before her death. I remember her from 80's and only because I liked few of her songs. I was teenager at that time. Later, I was not following her career so much (as already said). And she really did destroy her life some time during 90's, I can agree with that. However, I guess, afterwards, I kept some good notion of her. Despite the fact she destroyed herself on the end ...

Get triggered? I think movies should stop with the catchphrases....it's wearing thin. I was skeptical about this being a throw away buddy action movie, but the action scenes seem pretty spectacular HOWEVER, I will wait for cable/Netflix on this one.

Nice twist on the traditional theme. I am amazed at how spry Jackson seems regardless of his age.
