Lionsgate have released a UK trailer and quad poster for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which might be the closest we get to a team up of Wade Wilson and Nick Fury.
Notorious hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) is set to testify against murderous dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman). To make sure that he makes it to court alive, the world’s top bodyguard, Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), is hired to protect him. However, both Darius and Michael happen to be mortal enemies that have been trying to kill each other.
Directed by Patrick Hughes, the film also stars Elodie Yung, Salma Hayek, Joaquim de Almeida, Sam Hazeldine and Richard E. Grant.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard opens in the UK and US on 18 August 2017.
