Ryan Gosling Takes a Beating in First “The Fall Guy” Trailer

Ryan Gosling takes a beating and keeps on kicking in the first trailer for David Leitch’s The Fall Guy. Gosling plays Colt Seavers, a capable stuntman who ends up working on a film by Jody Moreno (Emily Blunt). Colt and Jody had a fling once, and despite Jody’s insistence there is nothing between them, it seems fairly evident they’ve got enough chemistry to provide her film with all its pyrotechnics.

While Colt and Jody try to put their past behind them and get on with the business of showbusiness, a problem arises on Jody’s set—the star of her film (and the man Colt is doubling), Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), goes missing—thus, Colt is deployed to go track Tom down and save the film. The stuntman becomes the leading man.

Yet Colt’s problems compound when Tom turns up dead, and he finds himself in the middle of an action movie with no safety harness, no wires, and very real danger.

The Fall Guy is inspired by the 1980s TV series of the same name, and with David Leitch at the helm, a former stuntman himself and the man behind the action in Bullet Train, Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde, and more, you know it’s not going to skimp on the insane action. Leitch directs from a script by Drew Pearce.

Joining Gosling, Blunt, and Taylor-Johnson are Hannah Waddingham, Winston Duke, Teresa Palmer, Stephanie Hsu, and Lee Majors.

Check out the trailer below. The Fall Guy hits theaters on March 1, 2024:
