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.

Here’s the summary for Death to 2020: “2020: A year so [insert adjective of choice here], even the creators of Black Mirror couldn’t make it up…but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a little something to add. Death To 2020 is a comedy event that tells the story of the dreadful year that was — and perhaps still is? This landmark documentary-style special weaves together some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months.”
