Security rushed over to the Canada native, who brushed himself off before hopping back down to check on the fans.
Reynolds’ upcoming Free Guy revolves around a guy named Guy (Reynolds) who suddenly discovers he is a non-playable character in a video game world.
"We really wanted to bring to the world a modern day Back to the Future for modern generations," Reynolds told the crowd further joking that the movie is "my favorite movie I've ever made, and that means a lot to me because I made Deadpool."
Free Guy also stars Jody Comer (Killing Eve), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Utkarsh Amdudkar (Pitch Perfect) and Lil Rel Howery (Get Out). It was directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) and written by Zak Penn (Ready Player One) and Matt Lieberman.
Free Guy releases on July 3, 2020.
