In ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’, a hitman Michael Bryce (Reynolds) is given the task to protect someone else, who happens to be Darius Kincaid (Jackson) another bodyguard. The two are incredibly different people who find themselves on a trip to make it to a trial of Vladislav Dukhovich (Oldman) on time.
Think of all the great buddy/action/comedies. The most important thing and the thing you think about with those movies isn’t the crazy action, it’s the chemistry between the two main stars. If they fail, the entire film fails. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson aren’t two people that you’d think of together but at the same time you kind of wonder why you haven’t seen them together.
In the above interview go behind the scenes and see some of the wild action. Gary Oldman talks about the chemistry between Sam and Ryan, Salma Hayek explains how the action is above the normal action film as well as how the actors work well together, and Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson tell us about their characters and how they used that to their advantage.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard releases August 18, 2017.
