After an agonising wait, Free Guy starring Ryan Reynolds has finally got a release date in India. The movie had received a great response after it was released in some parts of the world including the US earlier in August this year.

What is the movie about?

As soon as the trailer was released the netizens went wild with what the plot would be. The trailer featured Ryan Reynolds in a fantasy world. Many fans proposed the alternative universe theory, owing much to the actor’s Deadpool fandom. But the story happens in a game called Free City, an allusion to Vice City, in which Ryan Reynolds plays Guy, or Blue-Shirt-Guy, a Non-Player Character (NPC) in the game. His encounter with an actual human player called Millie gives him confidence and he becomes the first ever NPC to level up the game, instead of players.

Along with Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi play pivotal roles in the movie.

When and where could you watch Free Guy?

The movie was released on August 10 in the US and opened to highly positive reviews owing to the ultra-witty performance of Ryan Reynolds and the charm of a less explored theme. The movie will be released in India in theatres on September 17. This Twentieth Century production is directed by Shawn Levy, who is best known for The Night at the Museum trilogy and Netflix Original series Stranger Things.

Ryan Reynolds was last seen in the Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard in which he acted along with Samuel L. Jackson and Selma Hayek. The film also opened with positive reviews and was a commercial hit.
