The BBFC have given The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard a 15 age rating in the UK for very strong language, strong bloody violence, sex references.
An all star lineup of Ryan Reynold, Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek return in the comedy movie The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, sequel to The Hitman's Bodyguard.
Also coming along for the ride this time is Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas in what looks like a deadpan comedy.
The movie is directed once again by Patrick Hughes.
The world's top protection agent is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world's most notorious hit men.
The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their journey from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator who is out for blood.
BBFC certificate breakdown.

Paramount Pictures have released the first trailer for Sonic The Hedgehog which reveals the redesigned Sonic after the fan backlash of the original look and feel.
After the original trailer for 202's Sonic The Hedgehog film there was a sizeable amount of backlash from fans about the artistic design for the title character, so much so that the director Jeff Fowler publicly apologised and said he'd do a redesign.
Paramount have not released a new trailer with a character reveal, and on the whole it is being received a lot better.
Outside the controversy the film stars Jim Carey as Doctor Robotnik and is set for release Valentines Day 2020.
The trailer is good but concentrates more of Sonic and his look and speed and little on the actual film, so we'll have to wait for the next trailer for more story.
There is also a new poster worth checking out which at least features Jim Carey in a very overpowering pose.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel makes it 3 weeks at the top in a very quiet weekend at the UK box office.
A third weekend take of £1.4 million sees The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel bring it's total up to 1£1.7 million which is keeping it in-line (a little ahead in fact) to it's predecessor.
Highest new film of the week is Run All Night starring Liam Neeson and Ed harris which enters the box office at number 2.
A relatively low opening gross of just over £800,00 will probably see the film disappear quite quickly from the box office chart.
The only other new film opening on the top 10 this week is Suite Francaise at number 4 with a half a million debut.
