Director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel) stops by to talk about his latest film, Free Guy. Playing at Picturehouse cinemas this August.
Guy (Ryan Reynolds) is an ordinary guy in an extraordinary world: he's an NPC (non-playable character) in Free City, an expansive and brutal open world video game, only he doesn't know it. His days are spent working as a bank teller, standing by and letting the game's heroes do their jobs, until one day something changes. Outside of the game, a pair of programmers (Killing Eve's Jodie Comer and Stranger Things' Joe Keery) insert a new code that allows Guy to gain a deeper awareness of his surroundings – and before he knows it, he joins forces with the programmers' in-game counterparts to save his video game home before it gets deleted forever.
