Free Guy Trailer Starring Ryan Reynolds


Coming out of Disney’s panel at CCXP in Brazil this weekend, here is the first trailer for the upcoming Fox action-comedy Free Guy. Directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel), the movie stars Ryan Reynolds as a bank teller who discovers that he is an NPC inside an open world video game and decides to become the hero of his own story. It seems to be taking ideas from such movies as Wreck-It Ralph, The Lego Movie and Detective Pikachu to create a self-aware send up of video games. With a screenplay by Matt Lieberman (The Christmas Chronicles) and Zak Penn (Ready Player One), Free Guy co-stars Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi and it hits theatres on July 2nd. Check out the first trailer below and let us know what you think.

    Had to Goggle what NPC meant, though I basically got it from context. Looks a’ight.

  • Lori Cerny

    Looks very by-the-book with no expectations subverted. I’m out.

    Totally don’t like RR.

  • Beat_C

    i’m soooo with frank on ryan r. who told this guy he should be a comedian? painfully unfunny.

  • Deven Science

    About it looking alright, or not knowing what an NPC was? Yes, and I don’t play video games at all, so I’m not familiar with its inside lingo.
