Less than a week after its release date, Free Guy has become the highest-rated Ryan Reynolds movie on Rotten Tomatoes, with Reynolds already confirming a sequel in the works.
To summarise, the plot revolves around ‘Guy’, a non-player character (NPC) played by Ryan Reynolds who lives in this game called Free City. Becoming self-aware after meeting the Molotov Girl played by Jodie Comer, and fights to protect the game from the new corporate owners trying to pull the plug on it.
Not only is it almost an instant success, but it seems to be one of Reynolds’ favourite films so far. He screened a new Trailer at Comic-Con Experience in Brazil in 2019, commenting to the audience: “Free Guy is my favourite movie I’ve ever made, and that means a lot to me because I made Deadpool.”
Having surpassed hits like Deadpool and The Hitman’s Bodyguard, it’s really got a lot of potential as a franchise, with a well-rounded story that still presented audiences with a world full of plot possibilities. “We really wanted to bring to the world a modern day Back to the Future for modern generations.”
To top it off, Reynolds took to Twitter to reveal that Disney’s already knocking on his door for a sequel.
