By comparison, director David Leitch’s last film, “Bullet Train,” earned $4.6 million in previews in August 2022 en route to a $30.6 million opening weekend. “The Fall Guy” is projected to have a similar opening weekend, with some rival distributors projecting a possible $35-40 million launch.

Starring Ryan Gosling as a stuntman who loses his confidence after a bad accident before trying to repair his romantic relationship with a rising director (Emily Blunt), “The Fall Guy” currently carries an 85% score on Rotten
