Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt at the SXSW Premiere of THE FALL GUY

Posted on March 14, 2024


The Fall Guy had its premiere at SXSW and the buzz is very good. For these reasons, we are very much looking forward to the dual charm offensive about to be mounted by its extremely charming stars Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt.



From a style perspective, they’re both coming off of awards season ruts; him because he essentially wore the same Ken-inspired suit for nearly a year and her because her awards season style as an Oscar nominee was a little on the bizarre and unfocused side.



Having said that, SXSW isn’t a place where you can expect the stars to be turning looks in Valentino or whatever. You might get a few of them to dress up, but it really depends on the project. He is essentially doing that method dressing thing here. It fits the venue but it also tends to look like he’s in costume as his character. Whatever. He looks hot.



This represents the kind of high-end fashion you can expect: a sporty Balmain with kicks. It’s worth an average mortgage payment but it feels relatable. She looks cute. Honestly, we have not one note, which is not something we could say about her last year’s worth of looks.


– He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?
– From real life stunt man and director David Leitch, the blockbuster director of Bullet Train, Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and the producer of John Wick, Nobody and Violent Night, comes his most personal film yet. A new hilarious, hard-driving, all-star apex-action thriller and love letter to action movies and the hard-working and under-appreciated crew of people who make them: The Fall Guy.
Oscar® nominee Ryan Gosling (Barbie, La La Land, Drive) stars as Colt Seavers, a battle-scarred stuntman who, having left the business a year earlier to focus on both his physical and mental health, is drafted back into service when the star of a mega-budget studio movie—being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno, played by Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer, A Quiet Place films, Sicario)—goes missing.
– While the film’s ruthless producer (Emmy winner Hannah Waddingham; Ted Lasso), maneuvers to keep the disappearance of star Tom Ryder (Golden Globe winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson; Bullet Train) a secret from the studio and the media, Colt performs the film’s most outrageous stunts while trying (with limited success) to charm his way back into Jody’s good graces. But as the mystery around the missing star deepens, Colt will find himself ensnared in a sinister, criminal plot that will push him to the edge of a fall more dangerous than any stunt.
– Inspired by the hit 1980s TV series, The Fall Guy also stars Winston Duke (Black Panther franchise) and Academy Award® nominee Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All at Once).
– From a screenplay by Hobbs & Shaw screenwriter Drew Pearce, The Fall Guy is produced by Kelly McCormick (Bullet Train, Nobody, Atomic Blonde) and David Leitch for their company 87North, and by Ryan Gosling and by Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones, Steve Jobs and executive producer of the upcoming series Ripley) for Entertainment 360. The film is executive produced by Drew Pearce, Entertainment 360’s Geoff Shaevitz and the creator of the original Fall Guy television series, Glen A. Larson.
