Is Free Guy on Netflix? Where is the 2021 movie available to watch? Let’s consider the streaming situation for the latest Ryan Reynolds vehicle.
When it comes to providing laughs, many audiences would argue that few actors bring the hilarity quite like Ryan Reynolds.
The 44-year-old Canadian-American actor is perhaps best known for playing the titular merc with a mouth in both Deadpool and Deadpool 2.
Although, he has also impressed in the likes of The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Adventureland, Pokemon Detective Pikachu, 6 Underground, The Proposal, The Voices and beyond.
Despite delivering performances in such polarising titles as Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, nobody has been more willing to poke fun than Ryan himself.
Considering he’s one of the most popular screen actors working today, it’s hardly surprising that audiences are eager to check out Free Guy, but is it on Netflix?

- No, Free Guy is not available to stream on Netflix. There are currently no plans for it to be added to the streaming service and it’s scheduled for theatrical release on Friday, August 13th 2021.
So, it is unavailable to watch at the moment.
The film has been delayed a number of times in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and was originally slated for release in July 2020.
Ryan recently posted a video to Twitter, addressing the delays and the revised release date. He explained that this release date “we feel very good about, I mean unless of course the…”
He is humorously cut off before he can finish, but as it stands, it’s expected to reach cinemas – at long last – this August.
Directed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things), the film stars Ryan as Guy, a non-playable character in an open world video game called Free City. He works as a bank teller and becomes aware that he exists within a game. Absorbing this bombshell, he attempts to become the hero of the story and save the game before it’s shut down.Ryan Reynolds on Free Guy
As highlighted by Collider, Ryan was interviewed about the film during a virtual press conference in 2020.
It’s cited that Ryan regarded working on Free Guy as the best experience he’s ever had, to which he responded: “Wow, I don’t think I said it was the best experience I’d ever had because my kids [could see this].” However, he added:
“I do think it’s the best movie making experience that I’ve ever had, easily, but I also think it’s the best movie I’ve ever done. It’s the most pertinent to our times, in that sense. Where I feel Deadpool was a movie that was pertinent to the comic book culture when it came out, this really to me speaks in a broader spectrum of where we are in the world and not only that but how we are in the world…”
