It’s pretty tough to deny that Samuel L. Jackson is the ultimate badass.
Not only has Jackson starred in some of the most iconic films of all time—Pulp Fiction, Jurassic Park, and The Avengers to, quite literally, just name a few—he’s also given special meaning to the mother of all curse words. And yes, we’re obviously talking about motherf***er. (We did mention that this article, as well as the trailer, is definitely not kid-friendly, right?)
Now, Jackson is taking on yet another ass-kicking role in the new film Hitman’s Bodyguard, in which he plays the most wanted assassin in the world. Only this time he’s joined by a somewhat unconventional sidekick—Ryan Reynolds, who, in the film, assumes the position as Jackson’s bodyguard.
In the film, Reynolds’ character is tasked with making sure that Jackson makes it to the International Criminal Court, where he is set to testify in one piece, or, at the very least, alive.
And if the newest trailer for the action-packed flick is any indication, viewers can expect to see a ton of explosions, some hilarious (curse word-ridden) exchanges between the unlikely comedic duo, and Samuel L. Jackson at his motherf***in’ best.
Check out the hilarious, red-band trailer for Hitman’s Bodyguard in the video below.
Hitman’s Bodyguard, directed by Patrick Hughes and starring Jackson, Reynolds, Salma Hayek, Gary Oldman, and Elodie Yung, hits theatres on August 18, 2017.
