Disney announced a new Free Guy Release date and Ryan Reynolds confirmed it with a video. In it, he admits that they had a couple of hiccups with the premiere of the movie, but he assured that this time it is a “hundred percent” locked in. The actor reveals the new Free Guy release date to be August 13, 2021. However, there was a twist, Ryan Reynolds’ video of telling the date has a voice-over from someone else, hinting that the video might have him actually saying some other date. Ryan Reynolds’ video ends with stating that they feel good about this date, “unless of course…” referring to another lockdown or unexpected situations. Take a look at Ryan Reynolds’ video below.
