20th Century Fox Panel: An Insider’s Look at “The King’s Man” and “Free Guy”

The King’s Man (Twitter thread (+ Photos) here)

Manners Maketh…oh you know what the phrase is. What you don’t know, however, is exactly what THIS period spy thriller is going to have in store for us. If the NYCC exclusive teaser and stills were any sign…this is bound to be yet another slick stylized extravagance of ridiculousness. Hope you’re prepared to stan Gemma Arterton. Feels inevitable, bruv.

Free Guy (Twitter thread (+ Photos) here)

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarash Ambudkar and Taika Waititi, Free Guy is in theaters July 2020. Discussing the movie at NYCC, director Shawn Levy mentions Free Guy is about a guy who realizes he’s a background character, or an NPC, in a game. Quick shout out to the gamers out there, this movie straight up seems right up our alley. P.S. Taika is the villain and honestly, we’re probably not going to be able to handle it. Doesn’t mean we won’t try though, right?

USA’s The Purge

The Purge returns for its second season on USA Network, 10/15. Check out the sneak peek below. Lock your doors, shut your windows. The Purge is nearly commencing.
