Geekery: It’s M!@f#$%ing Hitman’s Bodyguard

Yes, this is a real movie with real explosions and real profanity.

Ryan Reynolds plays a highly rated bodyguard charged with keeping hitman Samuel L. Jackson, his former enemy, alive so that he can testify at the International Court of Justice. There’s yelling, there’s action, and there’s heap of meta.

The trailer is NSFW unless you have headphones.

Script is by Tom O’Connor (it was picked up in 2011), and Patrick Hughes is in the director’s chair. Both are newcomers, but they’ve managed to gather a good looking cast that includes Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell and Richard E. Grant.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard hits theaters on August 18th

    I didn’t know I needed a Ryan Reynolds/Samuel L. Jackson action comedy in my life, but here I am. I learn something new about myself every day.
