Reynolds and Jackson get close on The Hitman’s Bodyguard Poster
Following the Red Band trailer from a few days ago, Lionsgate‘s Summit Entertainment has debuted The Hitman’s Bodyguard poster! The poster, which you can view in full in the gallery below, is a play on the original poster for 1992’s The Bodyguard, which stars Kevin Costner and the late Whitney Houston. Even the Red Band trailer uses Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”!
In the August 18 release, 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. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard also stars Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell, and Richard E. Grant. The film was directed by Patrick Hughes from a script by Tom O’Connor.
