Ryan Reynolds hilarious responds to Gerard Butler’s comment about his hit movie Free Guy
Gerard Butler and Ryan Reynolds made headlines regarding Butler’s ignorance about Free Guy. Responding to this, Ryan Reynolds hilariously wrote on Instagram that it was unbelievable for him that Gerard Butler doesn’t know what Free Guy was!
During a very recent interview, Gerard Butler talked about comparisons of his movie Gamer to Ryan Reynolds’ recent action movie, Free Guy. However, Gerard Butler admitted that he has no clue about Free Guy. He said he isn’t updated on Ryan Reynolds’ latest movies.
This statement by Gerard Butler and later a rebuttal from Ryan Reynolds made headlines and also regarding Butler’s ignorance about Free Guy. Responding to this, Ryan Reynolds hilariously wrote on Instagram that it was unbelievable for him that Gerard Butler doesn’t know what Free Guy was! He also shared a link to Butler’s interview.
Gamer was released in 2009 and is another action-packed movie, which justifies the comparison to Free Guy.
Free Guy starring the 44-year-old Ryan Reynolds is about an online game, similar to Gamer. Reynolds plays the role of a bank teller who discovers that he’s a non-player character (NPC) in a video game open to the world. It was released last month after a delay of over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Reynolds has already sparked rumours about a potential sequel. It ran in the theatres for 45 days and the movie will now be available to stream online.
The film broke records making a whopping $28.4 million on the weekend of its opening. It managed a huge $51 million worldwide, according to a news portal. The feat is particularly worthy of news because the movie is not based on any existing intellectual property. Movies based on existing intellectual properties are usually the ones that hit such huge numbers.
Gerard Butler’s Gamer
In Gamer, Gerard Butler plays the role of a prisoner. He is put on death row but ends up participating in an online game. In the game, outsiders can control the players. About the sci-fi movie, Butler said it was about where the world was going, especially in gaming. He added that people are losing themselves in that world. The movie is about the blending of technology and man. He expressed his regret that the movie didn’t do amazing business.
