Watch Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson Bicker and Battle in 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' NSFW Teaser

The Hitman's Bodyguard

Starting production soon after Deadpool became a massive success last year, at first blush The Hitman's Bodyguard appears to mine similar territory. It's a foul-mouthed comedy starring Ryan Reynolds that is filled with wild action.

As the first teaser reveals, however, that's where the similarities end. Reynolds plays an executive protection agent who's considered the best in the world. He's the kind of precise operative who looks good in a business suit but never lets that get in the way of guarding his clients from danger.

His latest assignment finds himself protecting his mortal enemy (Samuel L. Jackson), an assassin whose notoriety rivals his own. They spend a reckless 24 hours together in Europe. Watch the NSFW (not safe for work) teaser below.

If that song sounds familiar, yes, that's Whitney Houston singing her version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," from The Bodyguard back in 1992, in which Kevin Costner starred as the titular protection agent. 

We trust the song is where the similarities end! Gary Oldman costars as the principal villain, an Eastern European dictator. Selma Hayek and Elodie Yung also star as the hitman's wife and an Interpol agent, respectively. Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3) directed.

The Hitman's Bodyguard opens in theaters on August 18.
