Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Salma Hayek are back in the red-band trailer The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife. And based on the extra NSFW clip, the sequel looks like it picks up right where the original film left off.
The trio first appeared in the 2017 hit The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which saw Michael Bryce (Reynolds) put it all on the line to protect Darius Kincaid (Jackson). Here, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Hayek) compels Bryce to do it all over again. The only problem is Bryce is on a company-enforced sabbatical and isn’t permitted to use weapons. Instead, he has to rely on his intellect to protect the couple as they embark on a “life-threatening mission.”
“As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman,” the film’s logline reads per a press release. And if you needed any more reason to see this, that “madman” is played by the one and only Antonio Banderas.
The Patrick-Hughes directed film also boasts an appearance from Morgan Freeman, with the rest of the cast rounded out by Frank Grillo, Caroline Goodall, Rebecca Front, Gabriella Wright, Alice McMillan, Kristofer Kamiyasu, Tom Hopper, Blake Ritson, and Richard E. Grant.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife hits theaters June 16. Watch the official red-band trailer up top.
