20th Century Studios released a new trailer for the Ryan Reynolds-starring Free Guy.
The trailer features Reynolds’ Guy introducing audiences to his world, which happens to be that of an NPC in a video game. Despite the chaos around him, though, Guy seems to enjoy his life, including his career as a bank teller — that is until he actually becomes aware that he’s an NPC. Soon after, it’s revealed that the video game world was created by Taika Waititi’s Antoine, who plans to destroy it.
Free Guy is one of numerous projects that began prior to The Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox. As such, it will be released under the recently rebranded, Disney-owned 20th Century Studios.
In Twentieth Century Studio’s 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.
Directed by Shawn Levy from a script by Matt Lieberman and Zak Penn, Free Guy stars Ryan Reynolds as Guy, Jodie Comer as Milly, Joe Keery as Keys, Lil Rel Howery as Buddy, Utkarsh Ambudkar as Mouser and Taika Waititi as Antoine. The film arrives in theaters Aug. 13.
