A new clip from Free Guy was released in order to hype up audiences and possibly boost their box office earnings. The clip features an extended scene from the movie in which Guy (Ryan Reynolds) has a violent confrontation in the bank where he works. And it only gets weirder from there.

First, Guy fatally shoots a man in the chest with a shotgun for trying to take away his special pair of glasses. He insists that the man is just resting as he slowly puts the gun down and rushes out of the bank. He then adorns his special reality glasses once again in order to see his world for what it is – a video game with options to visit the armory, the garage, or start a bank heist. His boss is outside sitting on a bench reading the newspaper and does not see the medkit which Guy’s special glasses allow him to see. When he reaches down to touch the medical supplies, the blood on his face is washed away and he feels “brand new”.
