The provocative Frenchman is having a lot of fun with his new sexy thriller, and while you may hear some deriding it for its uncouth treatment of the central female character, or calling it sensationalist trash, you can still join Ozon’s party by putting your convictions and politics on the side and let the film surprise you with its eye-widening shocks and pitch-black humor.

The early marketing for “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” really leaned heavily on parodying “The Bodyguard,” with first poster showing star Ryan Reynolds carrying his co-star Samuel L. Jackson similar to how Kevin Costner held Whitney Houston. The first trailer used the famous Whitney Houston song, “I Will Always Love You,” to really drive home the message that this movie was just like that one, but with laughs.
