Bodyguard Films

Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger star in DISORDER (in cinemas Friday 25th), a film about a soldier suffering with PTSD who takes a private security job as bodyguard to the young family of an arms dealer. Has Matthias’ Vincent bitten of more than he can chew? To mark the release, we’ve pulled together a list of our favourite ‘bodyguard’ films!

The Bodyguard (1992)
Former presidential bodyguard Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner) is assigned a new role as security for Rachel Marron, (Whitney Houston) a famous pop singer who received death threats. His strict rules leave the singer and her entourage a little upset, until the stalker does something drastic. A romantic affair between Frank and Rachel adds another layer to this thriller.

The Pacifier (2005)
In this Disney film, Vin Diesel starts as Shane Wolfe, a Navy SEAL assigned to protect the five children of a deceased government scientist. Many enemies of the scientist are on the hunt for his top-secret experiment, which is located in the house his children live in.  Although he was put in charge of security, Shane finds himself acting more as a nanny caught up in ever more absurd situations!

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
Former bodyguard to the president Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself trapped within the White House while a mastermind terrorist kidnaps the president and essentially takes over the whole building. Until responders can defeat the terrorist, they must rely on Banning and his previous experience to help save the President and protect the nation. This one’s an action-packed rollercoaster.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2016)
This recent thriller is based on the true story of the Benghazi attack that took place 11 September, 2012. During the attack on the US compound in Libya, the Ambassador is tragically killed. A Six man team tries to handle the situation the best way they possibly can while the chaos continues around them. The attack has been under the spotlight recently as Hilary Clinton, a democratic presidential hopeful, has been accused of not acting to prevent it.

Night at the Museum (2006)
Ben Stiller stars as Larry Daley, the new night security guard at the Museum of Natural History. To Larry’s surprise, the museum comes to life during the night, making his job all the more exciting and stressful. With a star-studded cast including Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Robin Williams and Ricky Gervais, Night at the Museum’s success led to two more films for the franchise. Larry finds himself acting as bodyguard to historic figures, animals, and artefacts!

Let Matthias protect you when DISORDER hits screen March 25th!
