It stars Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt and is based on the 1980s television series of the same name. The film is a love letter to action movies and the hard-working stunt crews who make them happen.

Per Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, the Extended Cut of the film features an additional 20 minutes of never-before-seen footage, with more action, more laughs, and more stunts. The film will be available for purchase from participating retailers nationwide including Apple TV, Fandango at Home (formerly Vudu), Comcast Xfinity, Cox, and Microsoft Movies & TV.

In the action-packed thrill ride, Gosling portrays Colt Seavers, a battle-scarred stuntman who is drafted back into service after a near career-ending accident. The new film he’s been assigned to work on is being directed by his ex-girlfriend, Jody Moreno (Blunt). However, the star of the new movie he is working on, Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), has gone missing. It’s now up to Colt Seavers to solve this mystery and save the day.

The film also stars Hannah Waddingham, Winston Duke, and Stephanie Hsu, and features a screenplay by Drew Pearce. The film also comes from the production team David Leitch and Kelly McCormick (Bullet Train, Violent Night, Nobody,) and their company 87North Productions, from Ryan Gosling and his production shingle Entertainment 360, and Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones, Steve Jobs ). The film is executive produced by Drew Pearce, Entertainment 360’s Geoff Shaevitz, and the late Glen A. Larson, the creator of the original television series.

Synopsis: Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling stars as Colt Seavers, a battle-scarred stuntman who, having left the business a year earlier to focus on both his physical and mental health, is drafted back into service when the star of a mega-budget studio movie—being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno, played by Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt—goes missing.

While the film’s ruthless producer (Hannah Waddingham), maneuvers to keep the disappearance of star Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) a secret from the studio and the media, Colt performs the film’s most outrageous stunts while trying (with limited success) to charm his way back into Jody’s good graces. But as the mystery around the missing star deepens, Colt will find himself ensnared in a sinister, criminal plot that will push him to the edge of a fall more dangerous than any stunt.
