A tweet from the film's official account said: "It's time to hit it baby one more time. #HitmansWifesBodyguard crashes into theaters June 16."

After seeing the teaser trailer, it seems fans are suitably excited for the movie, which is a sequel to 2017's The Hitman's Bodyguard.

"Best trailer of the year so far," one tweeted.

Another wrote: "Hahaha yes! So looking forward to this part 2."

There was also a lot of love for the use of a Britney Spears song, which some speculated may have been actor Ryan Reynolds' doing.

Another person said: "I can't wait to go on another crazy and wild ride with Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek! The action here looks insane! Also whoever thought to put Britney Spears 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' in this teaser is absolutely brilliant & deserves a raise!"

The sequel will reunite Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds and Salma Hayek, with Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman also joining the franchise for round two.

It will follow Michael Bryce (Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson) as they embark 'on another life-threatening mission' - presumably, to keep Kincaid's wife Sonia (Hayek) out of harm's way.

In the trailer, we see Michael seeking therapy and trying to relax on the beach in a bid to forget about his high-octane life.

"For the first time, I'm beginning to imagine a life without bodyguarding," he says in the voiceover, as Britney Spears' 'Hit Me Baby (One More Time)' plays in the background.

Suddenly, Sonia pops up behind him, grabbing Michael with one hand while holding a gun in the other - suggesting his new peaceful life may have been short-lived.

We also get a glimpse of Banderas in action as our new baddie, saying chillingly in a brief clip: "Kill them."

The film was originally supposed to be with us in August 2020, but like many projects, things had to be pushed back thanks to the global pandemic, with a new date set for August of this year.

But then things changed again - this time for the better - as Lionsgate announced it was bringing the film forward, hitting screens on 16 June in the US and 23 June in the UK.
