Ryan Reynolds Takes His Life in His Hands in Free Guy Trailer

20th Century Studios just has debuted a brand new trailer for the upcoming Free Guy movie. Now that the film is finally out of the holding pattern for release, the producers have also announced that the movie will hit theaters in August. The new promotional material features plenty of fresh footage featuring Reynolds’ Guy, a nonplayer character in a video game set in a Grand Theft Auto-like world. Guy’s life changes after he meets Jodie Comer’s Molotov Girl, who shows him his real condition. Among fantastic pop-culture references (including The Matrix), the story will follow Guy’s attempt to save his world before its creators shut it down.
