Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson will be co-starring with each other in this summer’s R-rated buddy cop comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which will see itself into theaters in August.
I won’t lie to you and say that this looks like a high-quality film, but it could be high-quality entertainment.
If anything, the chemistry between Reynolds and Jackson should be enough to allow this film safe coasting passage, but there could be a few surprises in store for us.
For starters, Gary Oldman is playing the baddie, with an excellent goatee and a general dick-ish bad guy mentality.
The action doesn’t look too shabby either.
You’re either all-in on this calorie-heavy piece of trash cinema or you’re not, which in that case you’ll be hard-judging all of us just looking for a good time.
