Movie Still On Course For December Release

A new trailer has dropped for Shawn Levy’s Free Guy, a comedy movie starring Ryan Reynolds as a background character within a violent video game.

Reynolds stars as a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game and decides to become the hero of his own story-one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way, before it is too late.

Here’s the trailer –

The official blurb reads –

“In Twentieth Century Studios’ epic adventure-comedy “Free Guy,” a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game, decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.”

Also starring Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi, Free Guy is directed by Shawn Levy from a story by Matt Lieberman and a screenplay by Lieberman and Zak Penn. The film is produced by Reynolds, Levy, Sarah Schechter, Greg Berlanti and Adam Kolbrenner with Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, George Dewey, Dan Levine and Michael Riley McGrath serving as executive producers.

Twentieth Century Studios also released a bunch of stills –

Stranger Things actor Keery recently discussed the movie –

“That was one of the things that when friends would ask me what the movie was about, I would say, “Yeah, it’s Truman Show meets maybe a little Back to The Future in there, maybe a little Ready Player One in there,”

“Yeah, it was a real blessing working with Ryan, though. He’s, like, the nicest dude I’ve ever met in my entire life.”

Reynolds has also made the Back To The Future comparison at last year’s CCXP, saying that the aim was to bring –

“to the world a modern day Back to the Future for modern generations.”

“Free Guy is my favorite movie I’ve ever made, and that means a lot to me because I made Deadpool.”

Free Guy is now slated for release on December 11th.
