New Clip from The Adam Project has Ryan Reynolds Meet His Younger Self
Published 7 months ago
After the success of Free Guy, Ryan Reynolds and director Shawn Levy are once again teaming up for a family-friendly action-comedy called The Adam Project. The film has Ryan Reynolds playing a man from the future who comes to the present to meet his younger self, and we have a new clip from the movie where the two versions of the same character meet.
While Ryan Reynolds has been notorious for coming up with witty banter, it’s actually funny to watch him bounce it off a child; I guess there’s also an added layer of wit when the child is supposed to be as snappy and sarcastic as Reynolds.
If you’ve watched Shawn Levy movies, he’s essentially the new king of family-friendly action-adventure films. He’s done it with Night at the Museum as well as Stranger Things with Netflix. Combine that with the charisma of Reynolds, and you have a surefire hit in your hands. I wonder why they didn’t decide to release this theatrically?
Here’s the official description of The Adam Project:
Adam Reed (Walker Scobell), age 13, and still grieving the sudden death of his father (Mark Ruffalo) a year earlier, walks into his garage one night to find a wounded pilot hiding there. This mysterious pilot (Reynolds) turns out to be the older version of himself from the future, where time travel is in its infancy. He has risked everything to come back in time on a secret mission. Together they must embark on an adventure into the past to find their father, set things right, and save the world.
The three working together, both young and grown Adam come to terms with the loss of their father and have a chance to heal the wounds that have shaped them. Adding to the challenge of the mission, the two Adams discover they really don’t like each other very much, and if they’re going to save the world, they’re first going to have to figure out how to get along.
The Adam Project comes to Netflix on March 11.
