“The Fall Guy” Appears to Have Everything in New Trailer

Ryan Gosling appears to have everything. It only makes sense to put him in a movie with everything.

Universal has unleashed a new trailer for their highly anticipated action thriller The Fall Guy. In it, the studio literally runs through a list of items featured in the film, including cardio, aliens, minerals, butt slaps, and all the feels by way of a beautifully placed cry-along to Taylor Swift's "All Too Well."

The film sees Gosling's Colt Seavers, a well-worn stuntman just a year into retirement, get recruited back into the game when the star of a mega-budget studio tentpole goes missing.

While very little is unveiled plotwise, the fast-paced, high-action trailer does show Colt getting into a few intense, dicey situations, many of which stem from the film's director, his ex, Jody Moreno, played by the always brilliant Emily Blunt.

As Colt works to find the missing star and save the film, shit (and bullets) go flying as he suddenly finds himself deep in some criminal mischief. As a result, his life (and future with Jody) is suddenly hanging in the balance. A fall like this is something he isn't entirely familiar with.

But that's nothing a little Swiftie magic can't handle! Am I right?

Inspired by the 1980s television show of the same name that ran from 1981 to 1986, The Fall Guy co-stars Hannah Waddingham, Aaron Taylor-Johnston, Winston Duke, and Stephanie Hsu. It is set to have its world premiere at the annual SXSW Film Festival in March ahead of a theatrical release on May 3.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
