Ryan Reynolds in a comedy? Who would have thought ?! Reynolds stars as Guy in Free Guy, an upcoming sci-fi action comedy movie directed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Big Fat Liar). The cast of the film also includes Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Joe Keery and Taika Waititi. In a video game, Guy is a non-player character (NPC) working as a bank teller. Thanks to a program developed by the programmers Milly (Comer) and Keys (Keery) inserted into the game by the publisher Antoine (Waititi), Guy realizes that his world is a video game, and goes on a journey to make it the hero , create a race against time to save the game before the developers can shut it down.
Judging from the latest trailer, Free Guy looks like a lot of fun, which is to be expected from the man who brought us Deadpool (who, by the way, has officially joined the MCU, in a very relevant way). The social embargo for the video game film has been lifted, so critics are sharing their thoughts on social media. Let’s see what they say.
