Lionsgate has debuted the trailer for Killers, an action comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl set for release this summer.  The basics: Heigl plays Jen, a computer tech vacationing in Europe where she encounters a shirtless and mysterious Spencer (Kutcher).  As romance ensues, Jen gets caught up in the dangerous world of Spencer who is, naturally, a “government-hired super assassin.”  Heigl is re-teaming with The Ugly Truth director Robert Luketic for the feature, which also co-stars Tom Selleck, Catherine O’Hara, and Martin Mull.

Check out the trailer after the break.

I’ve seen many instances of charm emanating from a Heigl performance–evidenced here with the trailer-capping banter about the difficulty of concealing firearms–but I don’t know that Killers will feature many more.  If Heigl puts on a good show, and Kutcher’s inherent obnoxiousness is counterbalanced by Selleck’s inherent coolness, Killers could be fun.

Killers will hit theaters on June 4, 2010.

For those just tuning in, here’s a plot synopsis:

Spencer Aimes is just your average, undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt, a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss.Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage… that is, until the morning after Spencer’s 30th birthday. That’s when Spencer and Jen learn he’s the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbors, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage, manage his pain-in-the-ass in-laws, keep up neighborly appearances and just plain survive. And you thought suburban life was easy.
