The good part starts at 00:50
Ninja looks pretty confident about his upcoming cameos and says he is interested in a career in acting. He says they will arrive soon and have already been filmed. Although he won't disclose which movies they are, it is interesting to learn what's coming.
On the other hand, Pokimane declared that she was not interested in becoming an actress. Although she is interested in cameos where she appears as herself, she does not wish to be cast in a role. She is specifically interested in appearing in movies about games.
YouTubers have appeared in movies before, but they rarely appear in movies without being made around them. Aside from Ryan and Sean (Nigahiga), Fred made a couple of films, and Wong Fu releases YouTube movies. But Fall Guy has huge names and has gone so far beyond the others, the closest may be New Low, which made it to Sundance and starred Tobuscus.
On August 13, 2021, in the United States, Free Guy was released in theaters. During its 45-day theatrical window, the film will only be available in theaters. In this case, the streaming platforms will have to wait for the movie to arrive, as those who don't want to go to theatres will have to wait for it.
