Directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill, The Expendables 3), The Hitman's Bodyguard looks to be a fun action comedy similar to last years hit The Nice Guy's. At least that's what I am hoping anyway! The cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, and Gary Oldman. Check out the official trailers below!!
Ted Takes Fun Facts, The Hitman's Bodyguard:
- The movie poster showing Ryan Reynolds carrying Samuel L. Jackson is a spoof of the poster for the 1992 film "The Bodyguard" where Kevin Costner is carrying Whitney Houston.
- During the trailer the song from the movie "The Bodyguard" from 1992 plays in the background. The movie poster from both films share similarities.
- A video of its filming in Amsterdam turned up on social media networks showing a car chase. A Porsche Cayenne is shown crashing into a Smart and pushing it in the water. The video went viral and the story changed to it being a stolen car in a real chase.
