The Fall Guy

29 June 2024

In the Playhouse


USA | 2024 | English | Action

Sydney, and the Opera House itself, provides the show-stopping backdrop to this action-packed blockbuster, starring Oscar nominees Ryan Gosling (Barbie, La La Land, Drive) and Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer, A Quiet Place films, Sicario). Directed by former stuntman David Leitch (Bullet Train).

With incredible stunts and Gosling and Blunt on top form, this gloriously entertaining comedy is a love-letter to the unsung heroes of cinema.


What could possibly go right?

Colt Seavers (Gosling) is a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. Fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero is drafted back into service when the leading actress of a mega-budget studio movie - being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno (Blunt) - goes missing. He has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job... what could possibly go right?

Presented by Sydney Opera House
