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.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
