The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard Trailer

The return of inexplicable sequels is but one part of the general “nature is healing” vibe of the 2021 summer movie season, and the awkwardly titled action comedy Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard fits the bill, unfortunately, quite well. A follow-up to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard (even as it loses the word “The” for no good reason), this sequel offers more of the same while being poorly paced and substituting yelling and profanity in place of actual wit or humor. Though it’s still plenty glib and smug, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard doesn’t deliver the goods.

The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard Trailer

The Hitman’s Bodyguard was already a throwback to action comedies of the past with a team-up of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson as an unlikely duo constantly at each other’s throats. But when it comes to the upcoming sequel, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, they’re throwing it back to the 1990s even harder with an old school voiceover in the latest trailer. I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard a movie use a deep, rich trailer voice like this. It’s rather soothing, even if it’s totally cheesy. So hop in a time machine ,and check out the new trailer below. Read More »

The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard Trailer

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson were at each other’s throats in the action comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard in 2017. After bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson) were forced to team up in the face of danger, Bryce now finds himself haunted by Kincaid in his dreams, so his therapist has recommended that he take a sabbatical from bodyguarding. But of course, danger finds him again when he has a run-in with Kincaid’s wife Sonia (Salma Hayek), and all hell breaks loose yet again in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. Watch the first trailer for the sequel below. Read More »

The 20 Best Movie Posters of 2017

Best Movie Posters of 2017

We’re close to the end of 2017, and as we rush to catch up on some of the awards season contenders in order to finalize our lists of the Top 10 Movies of 2017 (coming next week), it’s time to take a look back at the year in cinema.

Before we ever see a trailer for a movie, we’ll often see a teaser poster that tries to set the stage for what’s to come on the big screen. A majority of official movie posters from studios are boring, familiar and don’t do much to get people excited. But every year, there are at least a couple dozen movie posters that deserve recognition. So without further adieu, here are the 20 Best Movie Posters of 2017. Read More »

The Hitman's Bodyguard trailer 3

The buddy movie formula can encompass far more than just mismatched police officers who inevitably have to partner up with each other. Writers just need to make sure two characters who hate each other’s guts are forced to spend a lot of time in close quarters, and the latest trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard shows that there’s at least one iteration of the formula that we haven’t seen play out on the big screen quite yet. But why would a hitman need a bodyguard? Because he’s a key witness in a trial against one of the world’s worst dictators. Um, sure…I guess I can buy that. No one ever promised every instance of this formula had to make perfect sense.

The Hitman's Bodyguard trailer

Ryan Reynolds has been in some solid movies that haven’t required him to use his fast-talking jokester persona (Buried, The Nines, etc), but sometimes an actor crafts a persona so well that it becomes difficult for audiences to accept them doing anything else. And Reynolds is good at being an exasperated, sarcastic badass, so he might as well lean into it, right? Toss somebody like Samuel L. Jackson into the mix, and now you’ve got yourself a party.

That’s exactly what The Hitman’s Bodyguard does, and the film’s latest trailer shows the two of them in buddy cop mode as they bicker all across Europe while trying to stay one step ahead of a dictator who wants them dead.

2017 summer movie preview

The summer season is almost upon us and you know what that means: movies are about to get bigger, louder, and more expensive. And, if we’re lucky, they’ll also be pretty great!

The /Film team examined the list of every single major wide release (our indie and streaming preview arrives next week) hitting theaters this summer and argued, debated, and occasionally agreed on which 25 movies we’re most looking forward to watching over the coming months. The staff then voted, ranking them from “movies we want to see” to “movies we want to see right now.” So here’s our 2017 summer movie preview, which features superheroes, evil dolls, talking cars, pirates, sharks, dead strippers, World War II, and so much more.

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are going to try their hand at reviving the buddy comedy — this time with plenty of the latter’s trademark expletives.

The trailer for their new movie The Hitman’s Bodyguard is less a send-up of the legendary Whitney Houston/Kevin Costner Bodyguard romance (though the movie’s famous theme song I Will Always Love You hilariously plays throughout the trailer) and more an attempt to recapture the magic of ’80s action movie bromances à la Lethal Weapon. And with Reynolds and Jackson both cursing up a storm, it may just work.
