It was a dark and stormy day in New York City, the perfect day for brightly costumed superheroes to come out in droves and crowd the New York streets and subways. But there’s one superhero that stands apart from the rest. He’s a guy simply named Guy, and he’s not actually the hero of the story. An NPC (non-playable character) in a video game, Guy is a simple-minded bank teller played by Ryan Reynolds and the unwitting protagonist of the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed action-comedy Free Guy.
At 2019’s New York Comic-Con, the 20th Century Fox panel rolled out the red carpet for Reynolds and Levy, as well as the all-star cast that includes Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect). Here’s everything that /Film learned at the Free Guy New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

Michael Bay has been very busy since giving us one of the worst installments in the Transformers franchise. The director went from Los Angeles to Italy to the United Arab Emirates to shoot the action movie starring Ryan Reynolds, and now he’s delivered the first trailer for 6 Underground, a movie about six people who form a vigilante squad after faking their deaths, all so they can take down some of the most notorious criminals at large. If they simply called this movie 6 Batmans, they’d probably make $6 billion.
Anyway, watch the first 6 Underground trailer below. Read More »
Michael Bay took to Instagram to post a video of himself looking, and sounding, very sleepy, all in the name of teasing his upcoming Six Underground trailer. You get about a split-second look of someone (maybe Ryan Reynolds?) jumping off a building, but mostly you just get Bay in his editing suite/screening room, hyping up the Bayhem to come. Read More »

Early last year, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds threatened to remake the beloved murder mystery adaptation Clue, which is hands down the best board game movie ever made. (Not that it has much competition in that department, but it’s also just a great movie – period.) Updates about the new version have been relatively scarce since then, but it seems like the project is moving forward because it has now found a director in Jason Bateman, who just won an Emmy this past Sunday night for his directing work on season 2 of his Netflix series Ozark.
Bateman also reportedly plans to star in the Clue remake alongside Reynolds, so there’s one more potential suspect (or maybe victim?) in the mix.

It’s the first day of fall, but here we are talking about the most wonderful time of year thanks to news of Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds teaming up for a musical reimagining of the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale A Christmas Carol. But this will likely be unlike any adaptation we’ve seen before, since the filmmakers behind this take come from the world of straight-up comedy – and sometimes even R-rated laughs. Find out more about the A Christmas Carol musical movie below. Read More »
Update: Predictably, a Change.org petition about this is now making the rounds. Get the details below.
Yesterday, the internet collectively lost its mind over the news that Spider-Man may be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, we’ve gotten some updates about the story that makes the whole situation feel like more of an ongoing negotiation than a totally done deal, but still, people are very attached to this character and don’t want to see him cut off from the established ties to the MCU.
Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Endgame) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) are among the many who have weighed in with their thoughts on the matter, and you can read their takes below. Plus, there’s a protest brewing that might result in Sony Pictures having a very…interesting Halloween.

If you went into Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw expecting to get some cameos from the cast of the primary Fast and Furious franchise, then you walked away mostly disappointed. But if you went in not expecting a couple key cameos from two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, then you may have left the theater satisfied.
The marketing for Hobbs and Shaw kept the cameos in question out of the marketing, and the internet has been surprisingly good about keeping them under wraps, but now the cat’s out of the bag, and the cameos are officially being used to push the second weekend of release. Find out who made these big Hobbs and Shaw cameos and even see clips of one of them below. Read More »
