Disney and 20th Century Studios’ “Free Guy” is expected to score the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office for the second week in a row.

The comedic action film, starring Ryan Reynolds, is projected to add another $16 million to $18 million to last weekend’s haul, for a total gross of $56 million to $58 million. The video game-based film took in $5.1 million on Friday from 4,165 theaters. “Free Guy” topped the box office charts in its opening weekend, pulling in $28.4 million and beating expectations in the process.

Despite growing concern over the COVID-19 delta variant, “Free Guy” has had a strong start for a movie during pandemic times. The film is the first Disney movie to have a theatrical-only release for the first time in about a year — with all of its prior releases being simultaneously available to rent on Disney Plus Premier Access — and the new strategy appears to be paying off. The industry is eager to see if the trend will continue with Disney and Marvel’s “Shang-Chi” when it releases on Sept. 3.

In “Free Guy,” Reynolds portrays a non-playable video game character named Guy in a popular game called “Free City.” Once he realizes he is living in a fictional game, Guy sets off on a quest to become the game’s hero, with the help of the game’s programmers, played by Joe Keery and Jodie Comer. “Free Guy” also stars Lil Rel Howery, Taika Waititi and Utkarsh Ambudkar.

Taking the No. 2 spot is Paramount’s “Paw Patrol,” the film adaptation of the wildly popular children’s show. In its first week of release, “Paw Patrol” is expected to earn $12.5 million. On Friday, the kid-friendly film grossed $4.4 million from 3,184 theaters.

Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” hangs on in the third spot, with projected earnings of $6.1 million this weekend, bringing its total to an impressive $92.4 million. Following “Jungle Cruise” are horror sequel “Don’t Breathe 2” and Aretha Franklin biopic “Respect,” respectively. “Don’t Breathe 2” should add another $4.6 million for a total of $19.2 million, while “Respect” is expected to earn $3.29 million this weekend, bringing its gross to $15.2 million.

'Free Guy' Tops Box Office With Excellent $5M Friday

Forbes 22 August, 2021 - 09:10am

In holdover news for yesterday, Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer’s Free Guy parlayed good reviews, decent buzz and the whole “only in theaters for now” variable into a strong second-weekend hold. Shawn Levy’s original video game-specific fantasy comedy earned $5.185 million (-50%) on its second Friday to bring its eight-day cume to $45 million. That positions the over/under $115 million flick for a $17 million weekend, which A) is a drop of just 39% and B) frankly about what many of us feared it would open to on its opening weekend. The crowdpleaser will have $57 million domestic by tomorrow, and $100 million domestic is possible after a hold like this.

Aside from Disney’s own Shang-Chi on Labor Day, and Disney films playing concurrently don’t tend to cannibalize each other (see summer 2018, when Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles 2 and Ant-Man and the Wasp all earned best-case scenario box office and even Solo topped $200 million domestic), Free Guy is the only “new” four-quadrant, family-friendly game in town. It’s the last such film until, we hope, No Time to Die on October 8 and Venom: Let There Be Carnage on October 15. The rest of the best are either horror movies (Candyman, Malignant, Halloween Kills) or adult-skewing flicks (Queenpins, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark, Cry Macho, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, etc.).

Now that doesn’t mean Free Guy is yet a theatrical hit, as the overseas market is as compromised as the domestic one is and I can only hope it’ll break out in China next week. But a star-driven fantasy comedy original would have been a commercial coin toss even in better times, especially as Ryan Reynolds’ bankability outside of Deadpool is... uh, I hear his gin is delicious. But Free Guy is yet more proof, alongside A Quiet Place Part II and F9, that some semblance of theatrical exclusivity absolutely matters for big flicks. it also means that budgets still can make a difference between “yay” and “nay.”

I’d have been less cranky about Jungle Cruise if it cost closer to Rampage ($120 million), Jumanji: The Next Level ($120 million) and San Andreas ($115 million) than The Lone Ranger ($215 million), Prince of Persia ($200 million) and Hobbs & Shaw ($200 million). Nonetheless, a good hold is a good hold. Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt’s $200 million action comedy earned $1.726 million (-33%) to bring its 22-day cume to $88 million. We can expect a $6.1 million (-32%) weekend and $92 million 24-day total as it aims to hit $100 million before Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings opens on Labor Day weekend.

The film could well end up with around $110 million domestic, or on par with Central Intelligence ($126 million) and Rampage ($101 million). Yes, the overseas markets are heavily compromised and we don’t know how well it has done on Disney+ ($45 million as of two weeks ago), but the budget meant that it had to pull best-case-scenario revenue (be it from box office and/or Disney+ Premier Access). However, that it’s holding up despite Disney+ availability is an encouraging sign for this kind of pandemic-era strategy. Unless Marvel’s (very good) Shang-Chi goes bonkers theatrically, I expect Disney to offer a hybrid release for as many upcoming releases (Eternals, Encanto, etc.) as they can.

Screen Gems and Sony’s Don’t Breathe 2 earned $1.475 million (-66%) on its second Friday, setting the stage for a $4.62 million (-57%) weekend and $19.24 million ten-day total. That drop is not unexpected, as the sequel hasn’t been anywhere near as well-received as its predecessor, but $25-$30 million domestic for a $10 million R-rated horror flick is firmly “fine, I guess.” MGM’s Respect earned $1.05 million (-71%) on Friday for a likely $3.29 million (-63%) weekend and $15.26 million ten-day cume. That’s a brutal drop for a film that cost way too much ($55 million). Jennifer Hudson may still end up in the awards race, but it’s arguably finished as a theatrical play.

The Suicide Squad earned $1.29 million (-58%) on Friday for a likely $3.14 million (-58%) weekend. That’s a miserable $49 million 17-day cume, although the film logged around four million HBO Max households over its first ten days (behind only the five million earned by Mortal Kombat in ten days). We’re looking at a domestic finish on par with Fantastic Four ($56 million from a $25 million debut in 2015). The whole HBO Max/theaters strategy turned WB’s 2021 slate into glorified loss leaders, but some films will lose more than others. That we’re getting a James Gunn-created Peacemaker show and (allegedly/possibly) a Misha Green-directed Black Canary movie for HBO Max means that streaming may be where DC Films puts its primary focus.

M. Night Shyamalan’s Old earned $320,000 (-54%) on Friday for a likely $1.07 million (-55%) weekend and $45.113 million 31-day total. It’s on track to triple its $18 million budget domestically and possibly quintuple it worldwide. Marvel’s Black Widow will pass the $180 million mark as it wraps up its domestic run, with $1.01 million (-47%) in weekend seven. Disney is reporting that the film has earned $125 million in all streaming platforms. That is almost as leggy from a $60 million Disney+ debut as the film’s domestic theatrical run. It may imply that if Scarlett Johansson got a comparable cut of the streaming money there might not have been much financial harm from the hybrid release.

A24’s The Green Knight earned $190,000 (-44%) despite losing 784 theaters in weekend four, setting the stage for a $610,000 (-45%) weekend and $15.98 million 24-day cume. The acclaimed Dev Patel-starring fantasy dropped on PVOD on Thursday. With or without Covid, an over/under $17 million domestic finish for this David Lowery-directed tone poem is pretty good. LeBron James and Bugs Bunny’s Space Jam: A New Legacy will earn $500,000 (-55%) in weekend six for a $69.2 million domestic cume. Matt Damon’s $20 million Stillwater (a reasonable budget in non-Covid times) has earned $13.575 million in 24 days, while Escape Room 2 has $25 million, Snake Eyes has $28 million in a month and F9 now sits with $172.5 million domestic.

Ryan Reynolds has to limit how much ‘Fortnite’ he plays

The Cool Reason Jeopardy’s Alex Trebek Has A Free Guy Cameo, And How They Filmed It

CinemaBlend 22 August, 2021 - 09:10am

Free Guy has been one of the most entertaining summer movies, and fans love the video game-inspired film. The Ryan Reynold’s led movie is jam-packed with references and incredible cameos, including one from Captain America himself, Chris Evans. One of the coolest cameos in Free Guy is when the late Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek introduces a question on the game show about Ryan Reynold’s Guy. The director of Free Guy has explained the cool reason behind the cameo and how it was filmed.

Director Shawn Levy, appearing on the ReelBlend podcast, discussed one of the best and most effective cameos in Free Guy. Alex Trebek played himself in a clip from Jeopardy! that provides some important context to the film and adds to the sensation that guy becomes within the world of Free City. Shawn Levy explains why the cameo was critical, saying:

I didn’t get a chance to direct Alex. We sent a small crew. We used his show’s equipment. But again, that was an example of, we’re sitting in the editing room, and Ryan and I were like, ‘OK, we need to make Blue Shirt Guy famous. We need to tell the audience that Blue Shirt Guy is becoming a global phenomenon. How can we do that?’ We came up with a lot of new ideas, and we literally went and shot them while we were editing. And one of them was the Jeopardy! idea, because if you’re a Jeopardy! answer, you’re a cultural phenomenon. And it was a matter of Ryan just calling and asking.

Shawn Levy explains what went into filming the cameo, using a small crew and the show’s equipment. Becoming an answer to a question on Jeopardy! means that something is really popular or a hot topic, and that’s precisely what Trebek's cameo is supposed to convey. Blue Shirt Guy is becoming a sensation in the real world, and as his fame grows, he gets the ultimate acknowledgment of his popularity, and that’s being a question on Jeopardy!.

The idea came from Ryan Reynolds, who came up with the cameo in the editing room with Shawn Levy. They needed to make Guy famous and that he is blowing up in popularity, and Jeopardy! was the perfect way to show that. Ryan Reynolds apparently came up with a lot of ideas in the editing process that made it into the movie, including a hilarious scene involving Levy’s daughters. Free Guy looks like it was a blast to make, and the director and star weren’t afraid to try anything.

Free Guy dominated the box office its opening weekend, dethroning The Suicide Squad and making its mark on the summer movie landscape. Ryan Reynolds revealed that Disney already wants a Free Guy 2, and after years of pitching it as an original idea IP, he now has a new franchise.

Free Guy joins a list of 6 other great movies that take place within a video game, taking its premise and running with it, resulting in a creative and super fun film. Free Guy was a big surprise, and more of it is music to fans’ ears. Being set in a video game world means the possibilities for what's to come, and all the future cameos and pop culture references are endless. We cant wait to see what’s next for Blue Shirt guy after the movie’s epic ending.

Movie and TV obsessive. A good Heist movie is the way to my heart. Enjoyer of everything from Marvel Movies to Rom-coms.

Ryan Reynolds' Free Guy Set to Win Second Weekend at the Box Office

ComicBook.com 22 August, 2021 - 09:10am

Ryan Reynolds' Free Guy will remain atop the box office chart for a second straight weekend. The box office overall remains in a lull due to coronavirus cases spiking as the delta variant. Free Guy will take the top spot during this quiet weekend, adding $17.2 million to its gross, bringing its domestic box office total to $57.2 million. Paw Patrol: The Movie will open in second place (simultaneously with its release on Paramount+) to the tune of $13.5 million. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Jungle Cruise remains in third place. Free Guy has received strong reviews from critics. ComicBook.com's Charlie Ridgely gave the movie a 4 out of 5 in his review:

"It's the genuine human connection and optimistic outlook on life that make the Free Guy engine run, but that's not to downplay just how good a job this film does at bringing a video game to the screen. The gaming industry is explored in Free Guy almost as well as it is in Apple's Mythic Quest, while the in-game jokes also happen to land more often than not. Hollywood has proven time and again that filmmakers struggle with turning video game concepts into good movies, but the script from Matt Lieberman and Zak Penn puts enough care into both mediums to find success, while director Shawn Levy provides a steady hand to keep it from venturing too off-course."

All Free Guy Fortnite rewards players can claim right now for free

Sportskeeda 21 August, 2021 - 09:14am

Free Guy Fortnite rewards are available and gamers can claim them for free in the game.

Free rewards in Fortnite are quite rare, and gamers don't want to miss out on the golden opportunity to redeem them. The most recent Free Guy Fortnite collaboration event brought Ryan Reynolds to the island. Epic's regular content updates along with the hotfixes have managed to keep gamers glued to the game and explore new aspects that were added to the island.

The Free Guy Fortnite collaboration is a short yet enjoyable stint. Gamers can finish it off pretty quickly and claim the free rewards. This article will discuss the details of the Free Guy Fortnite rewards that can be claimed for free in Season 7.

A new name has been added to Epic's long list of collaboration events with popular-cultural segments. The developers have found immense success throughout these events and do not hesitate to drop collaborations every now and then.

Even though OG gamers have expressed their dissatisfaction towards Epic's collaboration policies, most gamers enjoy these events due to the free rewards that are up for grabs.

It was initially announced that the Free Guy Fortnite collaboration will remain until September 5. However, the dates were changed and now gamers can claim the free rewards until September 2.

Quest Update: Due to Free City obligations, the Free Guy quests will now conclude on September 2 @ 10:00 AM ET pic.twitter.com/3bVidTZ4Do #Fortnite #news

The Free Guy Fortnite collaboration has rolled out a handful of challenges for gamers to complete. Completing these quests will reward gamers with free rewards from the event.

The Free Guy Fortnite challenges are:

Each of these individual quests does not reward gamers with any specific items. However, completing all these five quests will reward gamers with the "Good Guy" emote.

Gamers may find some of the challenges a bit tricky, for example the "Get hit by a moving vehicle one." Gamers can complete the quest in solo mode as well. However, it requires a bit of creativity. Players need to build a structure with a ramp and platform.

After that, they should drive the car up the ramp and destroy the structure. However, gamers should remain a bit away from the point of impact.

The rest of the challenges are quite straightforward, and gamers can complete them easily without any assistance.
