Free Guy trailer: Ryan Reynolds is not living in the real world
CCXP is the last exhibition of the year likely to release juicy reveals of upcoming blockbusters for the next 12 months. This year is no different, with new footage of Birds of Prey being shown to attendees on Thursday, a first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 arriving tomorrow and the Ryan Reynolds-led Free Guy arriving this evening. The premise for this film sounds like a cross between the recent Jumanji films, GTA and the philosophical idea that we are not living in reality but instead a simulation. Sounds like a pretty fun idea, but with Shawn Levy directing and Matt Lieberman providing the script, it may not turn out the way we hope. Watch the first trailer for Free Guy above.
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.
Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Stranger Things) is directing a cast featuring Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi, who appear in support of Reynolds.
Free Guy is released July 1 in the UK, and July 3, 2020 in the US.
