Stars reunite in trailer for new action movie

Guardians of the Galaxy stars Dave Bautista and Pom Klementieff have reunited in a trailer for upcoming action film The Killer’s Game.

Based on Jay Bonansinga's 1997 novel of the same name, The Killer’s Game will focus on hitman Joe Flood, played by Bautista.

Flood authorises a hit on himself when he is told he has a terminal illness but then discovers that he was misdiagnosed.

The film follows him as he fends off an army of assassins who are trying to kill him.

The trailer opens with Sofia Boutella's (Rebel Moon) character asking Joe: "How did you end up here?"

With that, we’re given a glimpse into their relationship as well as Joe’s secret life as a hitman, until everything comes crashing down when he’s told that he only has three months to live.

The footage also features an on-screen reunion between Bautista and Klementieff - who played Drax the Destroyer and Mantis, respectively, in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy - as Joe asks Klementieff’s vengeful villain to order a hit squad after him.

"I’ve thought about doing this for years," she says. "You killed my father. This way, I kill you and get paid."

Although Joe tries to call off the hit after his doctor informs him that his patient file was switched and he’s not actually dying, the assassins continue to pursue him and won’t stop until he’s put in the ground.

The Killer’s Game is directed by JJ Perry and also stars fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe actor Sir Ben Kingsley and Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Terry Crews.

The Killer’s Game will arrive in cinemas on September 13.
