The latest Free Guy trailer, starring Ryan Reynolds, has been released by Fox/Disney with tonnes more footage from the comedy flick. Directed by Shawn Levy, the film tells the story of a mild-mannered bank teller, who discovers he is actually a non-playable character in a hit video game.
The official synopsis reveals.. .
“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.”
Based on that alone plus footage from the trailer, Free Guy sounds like a cross between Wreck-It Ralph and Ready Player One, but with massive clips of action and comedy plus Reynolds wise-cracking lines. The film also boasts the talents of Jodie Comer who plays Molotov Girl, a character in the game.
Joining the cast are Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi, who is playing an outlandish video game creator/developer. Free Guy is slated for a December 2020 release at the moment.
