If you only have time to watch one trailer all day, might I suggest the breezy little clip for Jonathan Lynn’s “Wild Target”, a British action/comedy starring Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint, Bill Nighy, Rupert Everett, and Martin Freeman. As far as action/comedies go, the feature looks pretty solid. Besides, how can you go wrong with a movie helmed by the guy who directed “Clue” and “Nuns on the Run”? Don’t answer that.

Plot synopsis, ahoy:

Victor Maynard is a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose. He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring in the process a young apprentice, Tony. Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client.

“Wild Target” arrives in UK theaters on June 18th.
