The Fall Guy will be available to buy and rent from next week and the release will also include an extended cut. 

Last week, we reported that David Leitch’s The Fall Guy was heading to streaming in the US only 17 days after it was released in cinemas. The film had a rough time financially and was considered a box-office disappointment for Universal Pictures.

The UK is now following behind with The Fall Guy available to buy and rent digitally from 3rd June. However, you also have the option to buy the film’s extended cut which includes “an additional 20 minutes of never-before-seen footage featuring more action, more laughs and more stunts,” according to the press release. 

Based on an 80s TV show of the same name, The Fall Guy stars Ryan Gosling as stuntman Colt Seavers who goes on an action-packed adventure after the star of his ex-girlfriend Jody’s directorial debut goes missing. Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Winston Duke also star in the film. 

Despite solid reviews and a lot of buzz from the film’s screening at the SXSW festival, The Fall Guy failed to take off at the box office. With a $130m price tag, the film’s disappointing opening weekend was enough for Universal to release it on digital after 17 days, as per their agreement with US theatres. 

We were big fans of the film. In our review, Simon Brew noted that: “Few films show such an overt respect and admiration for stunt work as this one does. And heck, it really is refreshing to enjoy a two hour movie that doesn’t need homework, and just leaves you considering going and buying another ticket instead.”

The Fall Guy will also continue its run in cinemas, but you can watch it at home from 3rd June.
