Ryan Reynolds is supporting Britney Spears with a Free Guy parody poster. Reynolds’ latest film is currently playing in theaters as of August 13. Based on its predominantly sure audits up until now, as indicated by its Rotten Tomatoes score drifting around the 80% range, Free Guy is shaping up to be one of this current summer’s sleeper hits. The lone uncertainty right presently is if audiences will head out in huge numbers to see it amidst the flooding COVID-19 Delta Variant. Free Guy is projected to earn just $15-17 million at the box office in its opening end of the week, which is half that of another comparable ongoing release from Disney, Jungle Cruise.
Considering this news, Reynolds is celebrating Britney’s recently discovered freedom along with many other superstars and fans on the web. Via his Instagram story (captured by Comicbook), the Deadpool actor also made a move to plug his as of late released film, Free Guy, with a mashed-up poster that reads “Free Gal” and shows his character from the film, the titular Guy, waving a #FreeBritney flag. Look at the parody poster underneath:
Reynolds’ social media post isn’t just an attempt to have some fun and celebrate the news, however a savvy PR move from the media magnate. The news broke that Jamie Spears was venturing down from the conservatorship on Thursday night at the time Free Guy’s early screenings were starting in theaters. At the danger of being overshadowed by the Britney Spears news, Reynolds chose to capitalize on the chance and piggyback off the greater news, while also respecting her triumph after an arduous legal battle.
This is all in trusts the parody poster increases Free Guy’s popularity and helps spread the word it is currently playing in theaters. The film also incorporates a shockingly major Marvel cameo (which will not be named here to avoid spoilers) that makes certain to create some buzz in the coming days. While Britney Spears is a free gal, Free Guy will not be good to go until it sees some reassuring box office numbers.
