At CCXP this weekend, Ryan Reynolds took the stage to reveal the new trailer for Free Guy, which stars Reynolds as a video game NPC who becomes self-aware.
Directed by Shawn Levy, Free Guy also stars Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, Lil Rel Howery, and Stranger Things’ Joe Keery.
“We really wanted to bring to the world a modern day Back to the Future for modern generations,” Reynolds said, as he addressed the crowd.
“Free Guy is my favorite movie I’ve ever made,” he shared, “and that means a lot to me because I made Deadpool.”
Reynolds also mentioned Will Ferrell’s Buddy in Elf and Peter Sellers’ performance in 1979’s Being There as inspirations for his character, Guy.
