Film - The Hitman's Bodyguard


While the rest of the planet is still oohing over the Star Wars trailer or waiting for Doctor Who, here at The DreamCage we like to take things a little more seriously. Watch the NSFW (but it's Easter Saturday so not a problem) trailer for The Hitman's Bodyguard...

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 a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious 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. 

Directed by Patrick Hughes and also starring Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell and Richard E. Grant, the film hits cinemas in the UK on August 18th

As one of the comments on the video said "All I see is Nick Fury trying to recruit Deadpool into the Avengers..." but, for me [Susan, erstwhile editor], it's the wonderful use of the Whitney Houston soundtrack that makes this the funniest trailer since, well, since the last thing Ryan Reynolds was in.
