Published 9 months ago
He may not be starring as Deadpool anytime soon, but Ryan Reynolds is still going to be doing some quippy action scenes for Netflix’s The Adam Project. The movie is set to premiere later this month, and we have a new trailer that gives us our best look at the story.
Check it out:
If you’re not familiar with Shawn Levy yet, there’s a good chance you’ve seen his work like Night at the Museum or Netflix’s hit series, Stranger Things. Levy is slowly coming out to be this generation’s Chris Columbus, in that he specializes in family-friendly adventure movies—and The Adam Project seems to be no exception.
While fans should expect some solid sci-fi action in this movie, there should also be some heart-warming moments between young and old Adam (Walker Scobell and Ryan Reynolds), as well as their father (Mark Ruffalo). With Ryan Reynolds on board, we should also expect some of his signature snarkiness—which will also be coming out of Scobell who is playing a younger Reynolds.
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 premieres on Netflix on March 11.
