Ryan Reynolds' character is dragged out of retirement once again for another adventure with Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek in the new movie The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard.

It's a sequel to 2017's surprise hit The Hitman's Bodyguard, and catches up with bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds), notorious hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson) and his wife Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek).

The release of the film, like many others, was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but it's almost out in theaters. Here's everything you need to know ahead of the release.

Studio Lionsgate Films had planned to release the action sequel on August 28, 2020. Unfortunately the pandemic delayed the movie and it was initially given a release date in August 2021.
