'Free Guy' trailer shows Ryan Reynolds in Grand Theft Auto-style movie

Free Guy trailer shows Ryan Reynolds as a self aware NPC character in a video game that's closing down

We have been hearing about Ryan Reynolds' upcoming movie 'Free Guy' for quite some time, but now we have the first trailer and I can see it certainly doesn't disappoint.

From the above trailer, which has been posted on the official 20th Century Fox YouTube Channel, we can see a blissfully ignorant Ryan Reynolds going about his background life until he begins to wake up. Reynolds' character is called "Guy", and he essentially becomes sentient as he realizes that he is, in fact, just a non-playable-character (NPC) inside a video game.

Upon realizing that he can do more, Guy decides to become the hero of his own story by attempting to rewrite himself with his ultimate goal being to save the world from being shut down. "Free Guy" is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) and written by Matt Lieberman. Other stars in the movie include Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, and Utkarsh Ambudkar. "Free Guy" is expected to hit theatres on July 3rd, 2020.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
