Universal Pictures has released the official trailer for David Leitch’s “The Fall Guy” starring Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, Winston Duke, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Waddingham & Stephanie Hsu. The film will arrive exclusively in theaters on March 1st, 2024.
Plot Synopsis: 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 do you all think of the trailer? Said to be stuntman turned director David Leitch’s most personal film yet, “The Fall Guy” looks to be the kind of silly, Spring release fun we need post-awards season. Ryan Gosling appears to be in more “The Nice Guys” than “Drive” mode here, while we’ll see how Emily Blunt works alongside him after she previously worked with his “The Gray Man” co-star Chris Evans in “Pain Hustlers.” I certainly like all members of the supporting cast and feel Leitch is an exciting director, though his brilliant stunt and camerawork tend to get overshadowed by simplistic and ludicrous storytelling. The constant use of Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name” is a bit redundant and eye-rolling. There are some gags in this trailer that don’t rise to the level of technical brilliance on display, but what else could I expect from such a commercial film such as this? Hopefully, it’s one of Leitch’s more surprising offerings, though I’m curious to know what you all think of his directorial output since critical consensus on almost all of his films seems to be split.
