Summer blockbuster movie season is just around the corner and, as theaters safely reopen their doors to the public amid the COVID pandemic, there is much to look forward to.
Free Guy, the video game Disney and 20th Century Studios flick starring Ryan Reynolds, is one of those upcoming movies — and, judging by its latest trailer, it could be one of the biggest hits of the summer.
The new trailer dropped online on Thursday, June 10, and, helped by the fact that Reynolds is in it, Free Guy is as fun as it is action-packed.

Free Guy also features Jodi Comer (Killing Eve), Joe Keery (Stranger Things) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), so Reynolds has a pretty solid cast to support. Real Steel and Night at the Museum director Sean Levy — one of the figures behind Stranger Things — is behind the camera on this one, too.

Analysis: Will Free Cow be successful at the box office?
we hope so. As we mentioned, Free Guy is full of actors who are household names and, at Reynolds, it has an A-list star, who needed Attract a lot of punters when it’s released this summer.
However, doing so will not be easy. Free Guy is launching some of the biggest (and most anticipated) movies of the year, so it’ll be struggling to earn a share of the box office pie.
Fast 9, Black Widow, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Jungle Cruise and The Suicide Squad are all releasing before Free Guy.
Sure, the quintet launches a month to a week before Free Guy hits theaters, but there are always movie fans who wait a few weeks (until the crowds subside) to catch the latest blockbuster. .
It is possible that some viewers may go to Black Widow or Space Jam 2 instead of Free Cow, which will eat up its potential profits.
However, the biggest advantage of Free Cow is that it is an original film. Those other movies are sequels, new installments in movie series, reboots or (in the case of Jungle Cruises) based on Disney theme park rides.
Free Guy, then, stands out from the blockbuster crowd of summer through its originality. You don’t need to watch the Fast and the Furious movies, or any of the MCU superhero flicks, to follow Free Guy’s plot.
There is still a lot of hype regarding its release. Free Cow was originally supposed to launch in July 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic paid off.
Even though it is coming out a year after its initial release, people are still eager to see Free Cow. Judging by the comments (and responses to the above tweet) left on the new trailer on YouTube, fans are excited to see Reynolds star in a movie that resembles Grand Theft Auto 5 Fortnite. Here’s hoping it’s as good as it sounds.
Free Guy will hit theaters worldwide on Friday, August 13.
