Just 40 days after its theatrical release, The Fall Guy has dropped on OTT, much to the excitement of the fans. However, there's a catch: the action comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt is streaming on Prime Video but only available to rent for Rs. 299. David Leitch's film has not yet received a full-fledged OTT release, but it may do so in a few months. The Fall Guy, written and directed by Drew Pearce and Leitch, premiered in 2024. It is largely based on a 1980s television series. While working on his ex-girlfriend's (Blunt) directorial debut action film, a stuntman (Gosling) becomes embroiled in a conspiracy involving the lead actor (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Additionally, Winston Duke, Stephanie Hsu, Teresa Palmer, and Hannah Waddingham are all part of the ensemble.

The Fall Guy's background and premise

Colt Seavers is a stuntman; thus, he gets blasted, shot, crashed, tossed out of windows, and plummeted from great heights for people's amusement, just like everyone else in the stunt profession. After surviving a near-fatal accident that almost ended his career, the working-class hero must now juggle his day job with the pursuit of a missing movie star, the investigation of a conspiracy, and his efforts to win back his beloved. Is there any way this could work out?

Gosling plays a battle-scarred stuntman who takes a year off to focus on his mental and physical health. When the star (Taylor-Johnson) of a high-profile studio movie goes missing, his ex-girlfriend Jody Moreno calls him back into the business.

Colt tries, unsuccessfully, to win back Jody's favour while the film's merciless producer (Waddingham) plots to conceal actor Tom Ryder's (Taylor-Johnson) disappearance from the studio and the press. Nevertheless, the growing intrigue surrounding the vanished celebrity will entangle him in a sinister criminal scheme, bringing him closer to a fate worse than any daredevil could ever imagine.

Tribute to action films

A love letter to action films and the dedicated but often overlooked crew who make them, The Fall Guy is an all-star apex-action thriller that is both amusing and relentless.

Even though critics gave the film mostly favourable reviews, it bombed at the box office, making only $166 million globally on a budget of $125–150 million and costing the studio as much as $60 million.
