WATCH: Ryan Reynolds is Samuel L. Jackson’s Bodyguard in Upcoming Funny Action Film

“I’m a triple A rated executive protection agent. And you’re the most wanted hitman in the world. My job is to keep you out of harm’s way.” This is the opening speech Ryan Reynolds delivers to a cynical Samuel L. Jackson, who just obviously laughs in his face. This is what The Hitman’s Bodyguard is all about.

I mean, come on. The humor is obviously there. Imagine two really macho men like Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a thrilling car chase, bullets flying all around…and then Whitney Houston’s dramatic ballad “Bodyguard” plays.

The trailer is filled with action, witty one-liners, and a LOT of cussing, and we are really loving it.
