Meet Guy, an ordinary, perhaps even slightly boring man who works as a bank teller…or so he thought. As the Free Guy Official Trailer hints at, Guy is actually a non-playable, background character in an open-play video game. The game, which is called Free City, seems to be a combination of Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto.
Originally in development with 21st Century Fox before the studio was acquired by Disney, Free Guy is a science fiction action comedy produced by Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy. Ryan Reynolds also stars in the film as the title character.
Eventually, Guy realizes that he’s living in a video game and that the developers are moving to take it offline for good. Determined to stop that from happening at all costs, Guy transforms into a hero who leads a race against time to save his world.
