Exclusive: New Hitman's Bodyguard trailer & posters with Jackson & Reynolds

What do you get when you make two people who DO NOT get along - a seasoned killer and a decorated protection agent – work together for the sake of getting the former to a court hearing? Well, you get a crazy 24-hour adventure across Europe that’s full of bullets, beat downs, car chases, and dare I say, a good amount of playful ribbing. THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD places Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds in that very scenario, and we here at JoBlo have an exclusive trailer for you that's filled with all of the above. It’s like THE ODD COUPLE, but if instead of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau bickering over furniture they argued over the proper way to pistol whip someone.

Here’s a plot synopsis:

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.

We also have for you three exclusive new posters with a sick retro vibe that recalls great action flicks like DIRTY HARRY and BEACHES. Wait…no that sounds right.

THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD hits theaters August 18.
