Get ready to fall in love with Ryan Gosling all over again because Universal Pictures has released the brand-spankin’ new trailer for The Fall Guy.
The new hilarious, hard-driving, all-star apex-action thriller is a love letter to action movies and the hard-working and under-appreciated crew of people who make them.
Inspired by the hit 1980s TV series and filmed in Sydney earlier this year, the flick stars Gosling as a VERY jacked stuntman, who gets embroiled in a whole lot more drama than he bargained for.
The official synopsis reads: “He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?”
What else do we know about the story and who else stars?
Gosling (Barbie) stars as Colt Seavers, a battle-scarred stuntman who, having left the business a year earlier to focus on both his physical and mental health, is drafted back into service when the star of a mega-budget studio movie—being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno, played by Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer)—goes missing.
While the film’s ruthless producer (Hannah Waddingham; Ted Lasso), maneuvers to keep the disappearance of star Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson; Bullet Train) a secret from the studio and the media, Colt performs the film’s most outrageous stunts while trying (with limited success) to charm his way back into Jody’s good graces.
But as the mystery around the missing star deepens, Colt will find himself ensnared in a sinister, criminal plot that will push him to the edge of a fall more dangerous than any stunt.
The flick also stars Winston Duke (Black Panther franchise) and Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All at Once).
Who is the team behind The Fall Guy?
The Fall Guy was directed by real-life stuntman and director David Leitch — the YUGELY famous blockbuster director of Bullet Train, Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. He also produced films John Wick, Nobody and Violent Night.
According to a press release that accompanied the trailer, the new flick is his most personal one yet.
Hobbs & Shaw screenwriter Drew Pearce wrote the script, so you can bet it’s going to be filled to the brim with action AND some light comedy… mostly from Gosling.
When will The Fall Guy be released?
While there’s no set date yet, The Fall Guy will be released in cinemas in March 2024.
