'Free Guy' Trailer: This is EXACTLY what recreational drugs feel like, say excited fans
In 'Free Guy', Reynolds plays an innocent bystander in an open-world, Grand Theft Auto-type video game
If you thought 'what if video game characters were living people' was a stale trope, Ryan Reynolds is here to change that.
In 'Free Guy', Reynolds is an innocent bystander in an open-world, Grand Theft Auto-type video game who sees the real world after finding a pair of glasses.
Going by the trailer, 'Free Guy' looks like a typical Ryan Reynolds film—full of his trademark wit, humour and geeky references—that earned him his innumerable nominations for 'Deadpool' and 'Deadpool 2'.
However, more than that, the film is also about what this average Joe does when they find themselves in a position of power.
Fans cannot wait for Reynolds to grace the big screens again and have flooded social media with their reactions.
"Dude... I'm so excited for #FreeGuy this is right up my alley! xD," one fan tweeted.
Another wrote, "#FreeGuy is basically following around a character in #GrandTheftAuto made into a movie! #CantWaitToSeeIt."
"I feel like watching Ryan Reynolds be thrown around and attacked like an NPC to Fantasy by Mariah Carey is something I never knew I needed until today. #FreeGuy," an excited fan tweeted.
In the trailer, Reynolds is heard asking, "Is this what recreational drugs feel like?" Quoting this, one fan wrote, "Is this what Recreational Drugs Feel like, after watching this Trailer.......!!! Ryan Reynolds #GoodGuy #FreeGuy is the Best."
"The trailer for #FreeGuy is sick!! Definitely gonna be a must-see," tweeted another.
The film also features Joe Kreery, who is known for his role as Steve Harrington in the sci-fi fantasy show, 'Stranger Things'. "Deadpool + Villanelle + Steve Harrington?! SIGN ME UPPPP! SO HERE FOR THIS!!," a fan excitedly wrote.
'Free Guy' is written by Matt Lieberman and Zak Penn and is directed by Shawn Levy.
The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer and Taika Waititi, and will release on July 3, 2020.
