One of 2020’s most anticipated releases is the outlandish action-comedy Free Guy, this totally original video game satire stars Ryan Reynolds as Guy, an NPC character in an ultra-violent video game, Free City, who suddenly breaks character, and begins to take control of the world around him….with outlandish results!
From the first teaser trailer that we’ve seen, Free Guy looks utterly amazing, and Reynolds has described the experience as thoroughly engaging, saying “I haven’t been this fully immersed and engaged in something since Deadpool”. While the film is still looking like it will arrive in cinemas this year on December1, 2020, we’ve got a brand new insight into the film thanks to some awesome new images.
In a series of new images we get a look at both the in-game world of with Guy (Reynolds) taking in the day with his usual coffee break, along with taking a look at characters who include programmer played Milly by Jodie Comer, who also plays Free City character Molotov Girl, and her fellow coder Keys played by Joe Kerry. In addition to these new images of Comer and Kerry we also get a new look at Taika Waititi as the eccentrically flamboyant Antoine, the publisher of Free City.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In the open world video game Free City, an amalgamation of Grand Theft Auto and Fortnite, Guy (Reynolds) is a non-player character (NPC) working as a bank teller. Thanks to a code developed by programmers Milly (Comer) and Keys (Keery) inserted into Free City by the publisher Antoine (Waititi), Guy becomes aware of his world being a video game, and takes steps to make himself the hero, creating a race against time to save the game before the developers can shut it down.
Free Guy is shaping up to be an absolute riot of a film experience and film fans will be in for a real treat when this one arrives in cinemas on December 1.
