This story, which in addition to the aforementioned Peter

At 43, Ryan Reynolds is one of the best-positioned Hollywood actors in public taste, thanks to his charisma and humor. This popularity has not fallen from the sky and he has struggled over the years to obtain the approval of the industry that gave him his first opportunity. After several failures in promising franchises and a couple of comedies that had a medium performance at the box office, he finally reached the antihero film Deadpool, in which he was able to make use of the comedy that characterizes him and the public surrendered to his charm. Now, as he is rumored to be preparing for a third installment of the sarcastic Marvel character, Reynolds has a 2020 film that promises to be a video game lover's favorite: Free Guy.

Free Guy takes the video game universe in context without actually relying on any, although it probably has references to many titles. Some already label it as a modern version of Back to the Future, although it looks more like a Ready Player One with a strong dose of Wifi Ralph.

'Red Notice': what it's about, release date and more about the Netflix movie

The plot follows Guy (Ryan Reynolds) a bank teller whose routine life seems to tire him, since every day is the same; he sees accidents, assaults and he is run over, without the slightest hesitation. All this is normal for the protagonist, until he discovers that he is a character from a video game called Free City. It is there when he goes from a common ATM to a superhero if he wants to save the video game, since there is someone interested in disappearing it. It sounds like an ideal tape for the protagonist of Green Lantern and Squad 6.

The film is directed by Shawn Levy, best known for leading the Night in the Museum trilogy, the remake of Cheaper by the Dozen and the tragicomedy Until Death Gathered Them. It is important to mention that the filmmaker has been part of the Stranger Things universe directing several episodes and serving as executive producer. source : Matt Lieberman (Scooby!) And Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk) are behind the script for Free Guy. On the other hand, Ryan Reynolds is accompanied by Jodie Comer, who plays Molotov Girl. The director and actor: Taika Waititi is the villain of the story and they are joined by Lil Rel Howery, Joe Keery, among others.

Free Guy was one of the films postponed by the pandemic (along with movies like Fast and Furious 9 and A Silent Place: Part 2), as the plan was to release it on July 3, 2020, but now it will hit theaters until December 11, 2020 in the United States.

This story, which in addition to the aforementioned Peter Weir film could recall both 'Stranger Than Fiction' and 'The LEGO Movie' (both with Will Ferrell), is based on Reynolds' charisma and video game environment which vaguely reminds us of the forgotten and entertaining madness of 'Gamer', from the creators of the two 'Crank' movies.

"I haven't been so involved and engaged in anything since 'Deadpool,'" Reynolds says of the film. "I think we are living really weird times right now. You put the news on and the main story is the end of the world. I empathized with the character, because sometimes we can feel like a background character, filler. The world is in a loop and we have no control over what is happening. "

'Free Guy', one of the big bets to wipe out during the upcoming blockbuster season, will hit movie theaters around the world in the summer of 2020.
