WARNING: This news bulletin contains a trailer with a suggested parental guidance notice, should be the words uttered when witnessing the brand new red band trailer for Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson’s hilarious profanity-laden The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
Reynolds and Jackson team us as a formidable pair in the trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which is set to Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You (a tongue in cheek nod to her film The Bodyguard), see’s Reynolds as the world’s top protection agent, looking slick in his grey suit, good looks and vanity-fuelled personality getting more than he bargains for when he is called upon to guard the life of notorious hitman played by an angry potty-mouthed Jackson. It’s an all out gun totting action comedy that from the trailer alone will have you doubled up with laughter as well as winching at the stupidity of an ill-attempted jump from a tall building.
