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 no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

Guys tend to be a little less open but today it's time for the ladies to ask away. Even wondered what they really think or feel about their body, yours? Today's the day to get the answers you didn't know you needed.
