Ryan Reynolds meets his younger self in a new scene from Netflix’s The Adam Project.
Deadpool and Free Guy star Ryan Reynolds has released a new scene from his upcoming Netflix film, The Adam Project. The new scene, bits of which were shared in the first trailer a few weeks back, shows the moment Adam Reed, a time-traveling pilot, encounters his 12-year-old self, portrayed by Walker Scobell. The scene showcases the childlike humor of Reynolds and the dynamic between the Deadpool star and the up and comer Scobell.
The Adam Project will focus on Adam Reed, a time traveler from the future, who crash lands in 2022 and teams up with his younger self to save the world. Reynolds has recently set up high expectations for the film when he compared it to the Spielberg classic E.T.: The Extraterrestrial. The banter young Scobell engages in with Reynolds in the newly released scene certainly resembles the precocious kids that Spielberg is known for creating. The Adam Project will premiere on Netflix on March 11, 2022.
Time-traveling films often outlaw interacting with your past self, but the collision of Adam Reed with his younger self is the focus of The Adam Project. Reynolds shared the first meeting of the two Adams when he posted a new scene from the film in his official YouTube account. The scene shows a recently injured future Adam searching his childhood home for supplies as the younger Adam peppers him with questions about his identity. The banter between the two Adams is funny and ends with a charming moment between the two Adams as the younger realizes he is speaking to his older self. Reynolds recently insisted that the Netflix film would make audiences laugh and cry and should appeal to both adults and children alike.
The Adam Project certainly has the talent to pull off a Spielberg-esque film with the talents of Reynolds, Jennifer Garner, and Mark Ruffalo starring in the upcoming project. There is also talent behind the camera with director Shawn Levy who previously teamed up with Reynolds on the 2021 successful comedy Free Guy before collaborating again on this film. The chemistry between Reynolds and Scobell in this new scene seems to set the tone for the film and hints at a journey of adventure and humor.
Whether the film will go down in the books with the likes of The Goonies and E.T.: The Extraterrestrial remains to be seen, but early reviews of the film are positive. Regardless of the films potential to be a classic, the scene shared by Reynolds promises a film with a lot of heart.
The Adam Project will premiere on Netflix on March 11, 2022.
