“The Fall Guy” Trailer 2 Blows Up Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt’s Chemistry

Universal Pictures has recently unveiled the trailer for “The Fall Guy,” starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt, both of whom have received Oscar nominations for their performances in some of 2023’s most celebrated films. This upcoming movie, set for a summer release, positions itself as a potential blockbuster, revitalizing a largely forgotten intellectual property. With David Leitch at the helm, known for his work on “Bullet Train” and “Deadpool 2,” the film promises a mix of action and comedy, leveraging both the director’s expertise and the charismatic lead duo’s on-screen chemistry.

A Blend of Action and Comedy

“The Fall Guy” is Leitch’s playground, where his background as a stuntman enriches the film’s action sequences, offering a spectacle of stunts, humor, and heart. The narrative follows a stuntman navigating the aftermath of a nearly career-ending accident. He embarks on a mission to locate a missing movie star, unravel a conspiracy, and reclaim the love of his life, all while fulfilling his day-to-day duties as a stunt professional. Early screenings, including one at SXSW, hint at a film that’s not only entertaining but also a delightful surprise for audiences, with /Film rating it a glowing 9 out of 10.

The Question of Relevance

Positioned as the inaugural blockbuster of the summer movie season, “The Fall Guy” faces the challenge of attracting a modern audience to a reboot of a TV show unfamiliar to many under 30. However, with a strong directorial vision, an appealing cast, and positive early reviews, the film stands a good chance of achieving success. The cast is rounded out by notable names such as Winston Duke, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Waddingham, and Stephanie Hsu, with Drew Pearce handling the screenplay.
