Free Guy (2021), starring Ryan Reynolds, is finally getting released on August 13, 2021. Pre-Pandemic it was set for July 3, 2020. Today, Disney has released a brand new trailer which you can view below.
Unfortunately, due to Fox’s pre-existing output deal with HBO that ends December 31, 2022, Free Guy will not be coming to Disney+ after its release for at least 2 years. It has not been rated yet so if it ends up Rated R it wouldn’t anyway.
Free Guy joins Ron’s Gone Wrong (2021) as 20th Century Studios films getting new trailers this week. Like with Free Guy, Ron’s won’t be on Disney+ until closer to 2024. We can only pray that Disney gets out of that Fox output deal earlier… Until then, enjoy the trailer below.
