Oh my, wow. Usually, trailers show the flashiest scenes and give away half of the plot, but the trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a little different.
And by different, I mean it’s two minutes of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson screaming some variation of ‘motherf*cker!’ at each other. Needless to say, I’m already SOLD. The jokes don’t even need to be funny, Reynolds and Samuel L. have two of the best delivery games in the… uh… game. Before he was a leading man, Reynolds was pretty strictly a comedy guy, people forget that. As for Samuel L., I’m starting to wonder whether he’s the greatest actor of all time. The guy literally plays himself in almost every movie, yet it’s always fantastic.
As for the actual movie, and this is HIGH praise based on such a relatively short trailer, I’m getting a very The Other Guys meets Kingsman vibe. And if you’ve seen either of those movies, you know how big of a compliment that is. We’ll see if it’s actually any good (your guess is as good as mine) but based on the first look, I have high hopes for this one.
