In 2017, we got an unexpectedly good action movie starring Ryan Reynolds violently quipping his way from action scene to action scene. I know what you're thinking, but Deadpool actually came out in 2016.

I'm talking about The Hitman's Bodyguard. The movie starred Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson as "Bodyguard" and "Hitman," respectively, actioning and "comedy-ing" through nearly two hours of film.


Now, Ryan Reynolds has shared a photo to his Twitter and Instagram accounts showing Selma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson, and himself on the set of the sequel, The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard.

Reynolds is notably covered in blood, while his co-stars are not.



The caption on his Instagram makes reference to Reynolds's old TV show, Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place, saying,

"Two Guys, A Girl and—OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCK? Here we go again... #HitmansWifesBodyguard @salmahayek @samuelljackson"

The original movie didn't really resonate with critics, but the chemistry and quippiness between the main actors has gained a great following.

Fans are really excited for the sequel.





The first movie saw Reynolds as a disgraced body guard having to protect a hitman testifying against a dictator in International Criminal Court. Jackson plays the hitman giving the testimony in exchange for the release of his wife, played by Hayek, from prison.

The title of the sequel gives a hint of how the film will move the story forward, moving Reynolds from guarding Jackson to guarding Hayek. While the story of the first film didn't receive glowing reviews, we're hoping that the great character interactions carry through.

Otherwise, why bother?




The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard has a pedigree in modern action blockbusters with Reynolds's aforementioned Deadpool films, and Jackson playing Nick Fury in the Marvel movies. They've added Frank Grillo from the Captain America films as an Interpol agent and Antonio Banderas from The Mask of Zorro and Desperado.

There is no word on a release date yet, but with the film taking place in several European countries and Reynolds's proclivity for oversharing on social media, this isn't the last set photo we'll see.

One second. One moment. One decision.

They can change... everything.

Change happens with and without notice. Life happens instantly, so we have to learn to keep up.

These are all lessons we learn too late. We need more wisdom when we're younger.

We can make our lives better from the smallest decisions without knowing. But, let's start knowing.

Life will be the better for it.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.
