Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy Release Date and Kingsman Moves to 2020


20th Century Fox (soon to be part of Disney) has made several updates to its release schedule, while Warner Bros. Pictures has removed two films from its schedule (after it dated Space Jam 2Annabelle 3, and Godzilla vs. Kong earlier this week).

Director Shawn Levy’s (Night at the Museum films, Real SteelFree Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds, has been set for a July 3, 2020 release. The Free Guy release date is the same as Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions sequel. Free Guy is scheduled to start filming in April.

In Free Guy, also starring Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Lil Rel (Get Out), and Joe Keery (Stranger Things), a bank teller stuck in his routine discovers he’s a background character in a rather brutal open world, action-adventure video game and he is the only one capable of saving his world. He’ll get the help of an avatar, played by Comer, whose name is Molotov Girl. In the real world, she is a mousy programmer who actually created the game but was devastated when it was stolen from her.

Rel is Reynolds’ best friend and fellow Non-Playable Character who doesn’t believe his friend’s seemingly outlandish claims. Keery is a programmer who may or may not have a secret agenda.
