Lionsgate has released a teaser trailer for its upcoming action-comedy The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, which is the sequel to the hit 2017 comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
The film reunites Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson as they reluctantly team up for another wild adventure that also involves Salma Hayek. If you were a fan of the first movie, then I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy what this sequel has in store. It looks like it’ll be equally as fun.
In the film, “The world’s most lethal odd couple – bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson) – are back on another life-threatening mission. Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Hayek). As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Antonio Banderas). Joining in the fun and deadly mayhem is Morgan Freeman as… well, you’ll have to see.”
Patrick Hughes returns to direct the film, with original writer Tom O’Connor penning the story and the script alongside Phillip and Brandon Murphy. The movie also stars Richard E. Grant (Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker), Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), Antonio Banderas (The Mask of Zorro), Frank Grillo (The Purge), and Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy).
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard was originally scheduled to be released on August 28th of last year, but was one of many films delayed. It will now make its theatrical debut on June 16th.
