Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson go at each other in fun-looking new Big Dumb Action Flick The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

Reynolds is Michael Bryce, who’s regarded as the world’s top bodyguard. He gets himself into quite the moral pickle when hired to protect his sworn enemy, notorious hitman Darius Kinkaid, for a period of 24 hours.

Yep, it’s the classic quip-laden buddy B.D.A.F. formula at work again, and it looks pretty darned cool from the trailer.

As well as Reynolds and Jackson, The Hitman’s Bodyguard also stars Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung, Joaquim De Almeida, Kirsty Mitchell and the one and only Richard E. Grant.

Prepare for The Hitman’s Bodyguard to, erm, hit Aussie cinemas on August 31.

As you might well imagine, this trailer features some language which may offend…
