Life is too short to be a background character as Ryan Reynolds becomes the hero in his own story in Free Guy. 20th Century Studios have released a brand new UK Trailer for this action comedy that originally was meant to be in cinemas last year.
Like Guy re-writing themselves and releasing this Summer with the Pandemic easing off enough for cinemas to reopen. Reynolds stars as Guy a man in average job and life who quickly learns he lives in a video game . He’s a NPC (Non-player character) and decides he no longer wants to be in the background, rewrites his life to become the hero.
This does feel like Reynolds in that Deadpool mode which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Some might like him to step out of that shadow this does like pretty good. Fun escapist popcorn fodder we all need once and while.
