Ryan Reynolds in Free Guy

Ryan Reynolds is an actor-writer-producer who is known for his biting sense of humor, and ability to poke fun at all things pop culture-- especially while playing Deadpool. As such, it should come as no surprise that he would weigh in on Britney Spears and the “Free Britney'' movement that’s surrounding her conservatorship. And now Reynolds has seemingly joined the Free Britney movement with a fun new poster for his movie Free Guy.

Prior to diving back into the role of Deadpool (hopefully in the MCU), Ryan Reynolds has kept busy with a number of highly anticipated movies. Free Guy sees Reynolds playing a NPC in a video game, and his social media game has been on point as he promotes the new release. This includes a poster seemingly showing him supporting the Free Britney movement, check it out below:

Alexa, play “Stronger” by Britney Spears. Because while Ryan Reynolds hasn’t actually issued a comment about Spears’ ongoing legal battles, this cute take on the Free Guy poster seemingly puts his support behind the Princess of Pop. Let’s break it all down.

This above image comes to us from Ryan Reynolds’ personal Instagram Story. As previously mentioned, he’s been campaigning hard ahead of Free Guy’s release, featuring all sorts of delightful content. And while his video with Korg and Deapdool broke the internet, Reynolds’ Free Britney reference is sure to turn a few heads. After all, every update about the conservatorship quickly goes viral.

In this fun Free Guy poster, we see Ryan Reynolds’ title character facing the chaos of his video game world. But the image adds a pink flag, featuring Britney Spears’ likeness and the Free Britney signature pink. What’s more, the movie’s title has been changed from Free Guy to Free Gal-- a reference to Spears’ hopes of ending her conservatorship.

While hardcore fans of Britney Spears have been privy to her conservatorship, the 39 year-old actress spoke publicly for the first time this year, and made headlines around the world as a result. Since then a number of celebrities have put their support behind the “Toxic” singer, including the likes of Cher, Paris Hilton, and Miley Cyrus.

As for Ryan Reynolds, he’s no doubt celebrating the release of Free Guy this weekend. The movie is arriving at a unique time, when projects haven’t been able to make the same box office numbers as pre-pandemic times. We’ll just have to see how its success is ultimately measured during these strange times.

Free Guy is in theaters now, while his highly anticipated Netflix movie Red Notice with Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson hitting November 12th. Be sure to check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
