Bowles takes Jets to the movies to see Samuel L. Jackson flick

The Jets took a break during training camp to catch a movie this week.

Todd Bowles took his team to a Morris County theatre to watch “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds.

“It was a pretty good movie,” defensive lineman Leonard Williams told the Daily News. “It was just cool to get out and away from football for a little bit. We’ve been in grind mode for a while. Everyone was just having fun together.”

Bowles, who rented out a local theatre last summer too at David Harris’ behest, has praised the positive vibes coming from his team this offseason. Players have also made it clear that this is a tighter-knit group than last year.

Bonding at the movies certainly can’t hurt.

“I just sense a feeling of everyone being more together on the team this year,” Williams said. “Coaches and players included. We’re just all mixing together more. Movie day the other day was awesome.”

In case you’re wondering, The Hitman’s Bodyguard is an action/comedy with this IMDb synopsis: “The world’s top bodyguard gets a new client, a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice. They must put their differences aside and work together to make it to the trial on time.”

The IMDb rating is a respectable 7.2, so it might actually be worth checking out.
