Ryan Reynolds' New Movie 'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard' Is Being Released Earlier Than Expected

The upcoming action movie The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard will be hitting theaters earlier than expected, though the release date change was expected by industry insiders.

The film, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, was previously scheduled to be released on August 20. Then, Disney decided to put Ryan‘s other action comedy movie Free Guy on the schedule for August 13.

Instead of having the two movies compete with each other during the August month, Lionsgate has decided to move The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard to June 16.

The film is a sequel to 2017′s The Hitman’s Bodyguard. In the movie, Bryce (Reynolds) – still unlicensed and under scrutiny – is forced into action by Darius (Jackson) and his wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia (Salma Hayek). 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 (Antonio Banderas).

Lionsgate’s president of Worldwide Distribution, Ron Schwartz, said in a statement, “This is the kind of summer action film that delivers even more comedy and more thrilling action than the first film – and it’s perfect for fans new to the franchise as well. The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is what summer moviegoing is all about – great, crowd-pleasing entertainment.”

Ryan watched one of his biggest movies for the first time ever last week and live tweeted.

Salma Hayek Responds to Allegations She Married François-Henri Pinault for His Money

Salma Hayek has been married to billionaire François-Henri Pinault for 12 years now, and she’s responding to allegations that she only married him for his money.

The 54-year-old actress went on the Armchair Expert podcast and discussed her relationship with the 58-year-old businessman.

“Can I say something about your husband, really quick? What a f—ing nice, fun, generous, nice warm guy. He’s super sexy too,” co-host Dax Shepard said. “I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t know who he was, I just heard or maybe read in a headline that you had married a really rich guy. Maybe that’s why she married him.”

“You know the thing is that in pictures you cannot begin to guess the magic in him. He’s made me become a much better person, and grow in such a good, healthy way,” Salma responded. “And, you know, when I married him, everybody said, ‘Oh, it’s arranged marriage, she married him for the money.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever, bitch. Think what you want.’ 15 years together, and we are strong in love. And I don’t even get offended, I’m like, yeah, whatever.”

“We’re touching on a very interesting conversation. There is a discrimination also to rich men. Immediately you think because somebody’s rich, [they] might not be a good person,” she added. “Might be somebody materialistic, might be somebody that doesn’t have values, might be somebody that is even stupid or that doesn’t deserve it. That in order to have a lot of money, you did it the wrong way, there is all this preconceptions and I heard them, by the way.”

“My guy, finished work, no matter how hard it was — and trust me he has a lot of responsibilities — big smile on his face, happy to be home, happy to see me and the kids, make us laugh,” she continued. “We go on vacation, he completely shuts off, he’s in the moment. It’s not just an insult to me. I’m not the one being judged only. They cannot begin to imagine what a joy that human being is.”

Salma and Francois-Henri just celebrated their anniversary as they wed on Valentine’s Day 2009 in Paris, France. They share one daughter, adorable Valentina!

Salma Hayek Reveals Her Upsetting Experience Filming 'Desperado' Love Scene Alongside 'Amazing' Antonio Banderas

Salma Hayek makes an appearance on Armchair Expert, the podcast hosted by Dax Shepard and Monica Padman, where she speaks about an upsetting experience on the set of her big break, which was 1995′s Desperado.

Salma spoke about how she was not told there was an intimate sex scene between her character and Antonio Banderas‘ character.

“So, when we were going to start shooting, I started to sob/ I don’t know that I can do it. I’m afraid,” Salma recalled.

She continued, “One of the things I was afraid of was Antonio — he was an absolute gentleman and so nice, and we’re still super close friends — but he was very free. It scared me that for him, it was like nothing. I started crying, and he was like, ‘Oh my God. You’re making me feel terrible.’ And I was so embarrassed that I was crying.”

She also emphasized that director Robert Rodriguez and Antonio “were amazing” and that Robert “never put pressure on me.” But nevertheless, the experience was traumatic.

“I was not letting go of the towel,” she said. “They would try to make me laugh. I would take it off for two seconds and start crying again. But we got through it. We did the best with what we could do at the time.”

“When you’re not you, then you can do it. But I keep thinking of my father and my brother,” she added. “And are they going to see it? And are they going to get teased? Guys don’t have that. Your father will be, ‘Yeah! That’s my son!’”

Antonio and Salma have remained friends over the years and she even presented him with an award a few years back.

Salma Hayek Admits She Knew Nothing About the 'Eternals' Before Joining the Movie

Salma Hayek is sharing some new details about her upcoming Marvel movie Eternals!

In a new interview, the 54-year-old actress admitted she didn’t know anything about the comic before landing the role in the movie.

“I was sworn to secrecy because I was one of the first people that they hired, but I had to keep it in a secret for a long, long time,” Salma shared on the Variety podcast “Just for Variety.”

“So, when I had the call, I said to them, ‘I confess. Eventually I will know everything that there is to know, but what are the Eternals? Do they exist in comics? I don’t know who’s Ajax.’” Salma recalled. “And then they explained everything to me. They explained me the script. They didn’t give me the script. I had to sign the contract without reading the script. They wouldn’t let me see the script until I signed. That was very unsettling.”

Salma then chatted about costume she wears in the upcoming Marvel movie directed by Chloe Zhao.

“Then I was afraid of the outfit. I’m claustrophobic,” Salma admitted. “I was very afraid that I was going to feel like I couldn’t move. It has a completely different DNA from the [other Marvel movies]. It’s shot different than all the other ones. It’s in real locations and they found some crazy extraterrestrial-looking locations. I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about what they do with the camera, but…it’s not mostly done in post. The cinematography is incredible.”

Despite her reservations, Salma says she finds her Eternals costume is “empowering.”

“It really moved me…It’s not because I’m putting on an outfit but we get the right to be superheroes today. I’m also 54,” Salma explained. “So there was something really moving, not just for me, but for everything, all the different stereotypes. She’s not sexy. You know what I’m saying? She’s not sexy at all. I’m very short. I’ve been bullied for being short my entire life. And suddenly, it doesn’t matter. You’re a superhero in the Marvel universe. It moved me.”

Salma stars in the Eternals alongside Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, and Gemma Chan.

Kumail also shared some exciting news about the movie!

Eternals is scheduled to be released on November 5.

Salma Hayek Reacts to Hilaria Baldwin's Heritage Scandal: 'She Fooled Me'

Salma Hayek is issuing a reaction to Alec Baldwin‘s wife Hilaria Baldwin‘s heritage scandal.

If you don’t remember, Hilaria came under fire a few weeks ago for misrepresenting her heritage and adopting a Spanish accent. She was actually born in Boston, Massachusetts, but many believed she was born in Mallorca, Spain due to interview articles and a bio on her own agency’s website.

“Oh my God. That is crazy,” Hayek said of all the controversy. “Like, you know what, because a lot of my friends ask me, ‘Oh, did you hear about this? Oh my God ….’ We all lie a little bit. She makes my friend happy,” Salma told Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s “Andy Cohen Live.” Alec and Salma became friends after working together on 30 Rock.

“She’s a good, she fooled me,” she added. “And you know, I don’t care. She, I’m sorry. I know I don’t mean to betray or hurt anybody’s feelings. And I don’t know if it’s right or if it’s wrong and I don’t, I’m not gonna judge somebody just because of that one thing.”

Salma added, “I feel honored that somebody wants to be, their alter ego it’s to be like something that is similar to my roots. It makes me feel proud that people are inspired because you know, I am Mexican Lebanese, but my grandparents, my ancestors on my mother’s side are Spanish. I think she’s smart to want to be Spanish. We’re cool.”

Salma added it was all “bizarre,” but said, “She’s not, not a bad person, not a bad person, a good person, a good mother and a good wife. She makes my friend happy. She’s very kind to me. And that’s all I care about.”
