Trailer Tuesdays: The Hitman’s Bodyguard
GUYS GUYS GUYS! THERE’S A NEW ACTION BUDDY MOVIE! IT HAS RYAN REYNOLDS AND SAMUEL L. JACKSON!
So the obvious: how fucking great is it going to be watching Deadpool and Frozone going head to head as a no-nonsense freelance bodyguard and the cranky hitman witness he’s hired to protect? It’s a smart ass dream right there, and whoever greenlit this one gets a firm high five from me. That being said, I did manage to see this trailer with my friend Becky at Wonder Woman this weekend (which is worth every goddamned penny), and she raised a great point: in what universe is Samuel L. Jackson married to Salma Hayek? “He’s like 70, and she’s Salma Hayek,” she explained, and I have to admit that she’s got a pretty valid point there. It sounds ridiculous, and it looks ridiculous for a man pushing 70 (he’s only 68, but still) to be married to a woman 18 years younger with boobs like that. We’ve still got a long ways to go in terms of ageism, peeps.
However… my powers of smart ass win the day. I’m pumped for this. Shut up and take my money.
