Free Guy was originally meant to be released last year, but it was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s now slated for a theatrical release on August 13, 2021. As of now, 20th Century Studios will be sending the movie exclusively to theatres on that date, and it won’t be released on streaming until after its theatrical run is finished.
Free Guy is the story of a bank teller (Ryan Reynolds) who discovers he is a nameless background player in a hyper-realistic video game. He decides to break out and forge his own path in a story that moves between the real world and the virtual world.
