I said it before when the first trailer for Free Guy dropped back in December 2019 – Movies In Focus is at the point where I can’t stand Ryan Reynolds.
His schtick has worn thin. That continuous mugging and smug, self-referential meta-commentary is just too much. Throw-in the over marketed Deadpool movies, Pokémon Detective Pikachu and the forthcoming Michael Bay actioner 6 Underground and I just can’t take it anymore.
Just when you think that things can’t get any worse – they do! This third(!) trailer for Shawn Levy’s Free Guy looks next-level atrocious. Again, it’s smug and clearly aimed at the lowest common denominator. The film is set to open on 13 August 2021.
