While creators of the ninth Fast and Furious movie and Disney’s Marvel universe are releasing movie trailers practically begging you to come back to movie theaters, it’s refreshing to see Ryan Reynolds up to his trademark snarky antics in a straight-forward trailer for The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, sequel to the 2017 action comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard.  In the first movie Reynolds starred as bodyguard to a kingpin turning state’s evidence played by Samuel L. Jackson.  After the events of the last film, Reynolds’ bodyguard is done with it all at the beginning of this sequel.  But, like Michael Corleone, they keep pulling him back in.  And that means protecting the kingpin’s wife, played by Academy Award-winning actress Salma Hayek.

Because Reynolds & Co. are quite good at affiliating themselves with sound, moneymaking productions of late (like Netflix’s fabulous action flick 6 Underground), the result looks like it could be a big, fun, summer hit.

Check out the trailer for The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard:

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is slated to arrive in theaters June 16, 2021.
