Free Guy was due to hit the big screen on December 11, with Death on the Nile following on December 18. Neither movie has been given a new release date yet.
Free Guy follows bank teller Guy, played by Reynolds, who discovers he’s a background character in a violent video game. With his whole world turned upside down and life as he knows it changed forever, Guy decides to use his newfound self-awareness for good – and save a few lives along the way, too. Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, Stranger Things’ Joe Keery, and Taika Waititi also star.
Meanwhile, Death on the Nile is the follow-up to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express. Another Agatha Christie adaptation, Kenneth Branagh returns as detective Hercule Poirot who’s investigating the murder of a young heiress aboard a cruise ship on the River Nile. The all-star supporting cast includes Letitia Wright, Gal Gadot, and Armie Hammer.
At the moment, it seems like Wonder Woman 1984 is the only blockbuster still scheduled for release this year – fingers crossed, we can still expect the Gal Gadot-fronted sequel to hit cinemas on Christmas Day in the US (followed by a Boxing Day release in the UK). Director Patty Jenkins has previously ruled out the movie going straight to streaming platforms, too, saying: “We are still 100% behind the theatrical experience.”
In the meantime, we’ll have to get our blockbuster fix from the comfort of our homes – check out our list of the best Netflix movies to watch right now.
