The co-stars of ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer’ play stuntman and director in the Big Game TV spot for ‘The Fall Guy’. Check it out below:
WHAT IS ‘THE FALL GUY’ ABOUT?
Here’s the official logline from Universal Pictures:
Colt Seavers, a battered and past-his-prime stuntman, finds himself working on a film set with the famous star for whom he doubled long ago. When the star goes missing, and the film (which is being directed by Colt’s ex-girlfriend), is in danger of being shut down, he volunteers to investigate the disappearance and find the missing actor.
The Universal Pictures website includes this longer synopsis:
Oscar® nominee Ryan Gosling (Barbie, La La Land, Drive) 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 Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer, A Quiet Place films, Sicario)—goes missing. While the film’s ruthless producer (Emmy winner Hannah Waddingham; Ted Lasso), maneuvers to keep the disappearance of star Tom Ryder (Golden Globe winner 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 film stars Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, Winston Duke, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Waddingham, and Stephanie Hsu. Check out the poster below:
The Fall Guy releases only in theaters May 3.
