With the trailer launching at Brazil’s Comic Con Experience (CCXP) tomorrow and then coming online, Ryan Reynolds has revealed the Free Guy trailer tease. Featuring Reynolds and his co-stars Lil Rel Howery, Jodie Comer, and Joe Keery, the video has the cast members answering what drew them to the movie. The clip quickly takes a turn once it gets to Reynolds, who thinks they need to up their merchandise game since Disney now owns the movie’s studio, 20th Century Fox. Also, be sure to call 1-906-FREE-GUY for a special message from Reynolds!
Directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum films, Real Steel) and opening in theaters on July 3, 2020, Free Guy stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool films), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), and Utkarsh Ambudkar.
In Free Guy, a bank teller (Ryan Reynolds) 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 (NPC) who doesn’t believe his friend’s seemingly outlandish claims. Keery is a programmer who may or may not have a secret agenda.
Written by Matt Lieberman, the film is executive produced by George Dewey. Mike Ireland is overseeing for 20th Century Fox. Berlanti Productions’ Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are producing alongside Reynolds’ Maximum Effort, Levy’s 21 Laps, and Adam Kolbrenner. George Dewey is executive producing.
