What better way to promote an action packed movie than training to be like the main characters? The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, hits theaters August 18, but this week, ScreenPicks correspondent Landon Johnson got a thrill of a lifetime training to be a Hitman, courtesy of the folks at Lionsgate!

He went through extensive “Hitman training” to see if he had what it takes to stay alive in the violent world of the trained assassin. First, his agility and accuracy were measured in a Parkour-style game of Laser Tag. Then, he had get behind the wheel in a high speed pursuit by racing go-carts on slippery track. Not everyone has what it takes, but it sure was a lot of fun!

Check out the clip of the #HitmanTraining below.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard follows the world’s top bodyguard (Reynolds), who gets a new client, a hitman (Jackson), who must testify at the International Court of Justice. They must put their differences aside and work together to make it to the trial on time. Watch the trailer below and make sure to go see it in theaters August 18!
