"Hitman's Bodyguard" teaser features Samuel L. Jackson

Lionsgate released the teaser trailer for The Hitman's Bodyguard with hitman Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds as his bodyguard.

The Hitman's Bodyguard is due for release in the USA on 18 August. What more could you ask for? This is an action comedy through and through, and honestly this trailer is really amusing as it plays the comedic strengths of both Reynolds and Jackson.

The world's top protection agent (Reynolds) gets a new client: a hitman (Jackson) who came in from the cold.

Keep I Will Always Love You, but punctuate it with about a hundred gunshots and auto explosions. 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. Along the way and around the world, they encounter dangerously high-speed vehicle chases, outlandish boat escapades, and a ruthless Eastern European dictator, played by Gary Oldman, who is out for nothing but blood.

And if the newest trailer for the action-packed flick is any indication, viewers can expect to see a ton of explosions, some hilarious (curse word-ridden) exchanges between the unlikely comedic duo, and Samuel L. Jackson at his motherf***in' best. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson's equally notorious wife. The movie, directed by Patrick Hughes, also stars Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Kirsty Mitchell and Elodie Yung.
