Ryan Reynolds Plays a Video Game NPC in First Official Trailer for “Free Guy”

Creative bankruptcy, or genius? 20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for “Free Guy,” a movie that explores the life of a video game NPC. Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds plays the lead, “Guy,” a bank teller who realizes he’s an unwilling participant in a virtual world. It appears to be the perfect film for GTA fans who have wondered what it’s like to be on the receiving end of all that violence.

In Twentieth Century Fox’s epic adventure-comedy “Free Guy,” a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game, decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.
