We’d say Ryan Reynolds just plays himself in his films, cool, fast-talking, sassy and funny as hell.
The coolest Ryan is back! This time, with double trouble.
Allow us to explain! In his new film, The Adam Project, directed by Stranger Things creator Shawn Levy, Reynolds plays a time-traveler who must team up with his younger self and his late father in order to preserve the future—and come to grips with his past. Netflix released a new clip movie as part of Netflix’s preview of the films set to be released on the streaming service this year. The action and adventure-packed clip include Reynolds as Adam Reed, Walker Scobell as his 12-year-old self, and Mark Ruffalo as Adam’s late father.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Netflix movie, The Adam Project:
What is the plot of The Adam Project?
Reynolds portrays Adam Reed, a wounded time traveler from the year 2050 who has gone back in time on a rogue rescue mission to save Laura (Zoe Saldana), the woman he loves, who mysteriously vanishes from the time-space continuum. When Adam’s spacecraft is destroyed, he is thrown back to 2022, to the only place he remembers: home.
The official synopsis for The Adam Project:
Adam Reed, age 13, and still grieving the sudden death of his father a year earlier, walks into his garage one night to find a wounded pilot hiding there. This mysterious pilot 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.
In a Vanity Fair interview, director Shawn Levy said that the characters of Reynolds in Free Guy and Adam Reed in this film are completely different and that Adam Reed is a “very cynical” character.
