The Fall Guy


“I never forget a fist”



Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt (aka Ken and Kitty from last year’s rival blockbuster behemoths Barbie and Oppenheimer, respectively) star in this fun-filled, action-packed, unabashedly loving ode to movies and the people who make them. Stuntman Colt Seavers (Gosling) is called upon for help when the star of a mega-budget studio movie – being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno (Blunt) – has gone missing. The situation is complicated by the fact that the film’s producer (Hannah Waddingham, Ted Lasso) wants to keep the actor’s disappearance a secret from the film studio and the media. But even more complicated is the situation between Colt and Jody – could Colt’s heroic efforts convince Jody to give things another shot?

A consistently good time, two hours of zingers with impeccable timing, two bona fide movie stars with palpable chemistry, several enjoyably meta send-ups of the business and, of course, plenty of crazy stunts.

The Guardian

This is popcorn filmmaking at its most cheerful and enthusiastic, driven by cheeky needle drops, rousing action, and movie stars.


“An act of pure movie love”


Why You Should See This Film

Pure and simple, this is a rollickingly fun time at the movies. Shot in Sydney, The Fall Guy hearkens back to action movies from the 1990s heyday like the Lethal Weapon and Die Hard films, and it’s led by two of the most charismatic actors working in Hollywood. Director David Leitch (Bullet Train) started out in the industry as a stuntman and cites his time observing David Fincher work, while serving as stuntman to Brad Pitt in Fight Club, as formative in his path to shifting behind the camera. Naturally, the stunts in this film are breathtaking, achieved in largely practical ways, and one even managed to break the Guinness World Record for cannon rolls in a car (eight-and-a-half rolls, for those playing at home).
