How to Watch The Fall Guy At Home


You could say that Colt Seavers’ job is just … stunts. Well, that and winning back the affections of his longtime crush, all while navigating a missing movie star who appears to be wrapped up in a criminal conspiracy of some kind. The premise of “The Fall Guy” might seem a bit unwieldy, but director David Leitch and veteran writer Drew Pearce manage to streamline every inch of this story (based on the 1981 television series of the same name) into an absolute romp. So it comes as a pleasant surprise to find out that we’ll be able to enjoy even more high-flying action and thrilling stunt work with an extended cut.

Viewers who purchase “The Fall Guy” digitally through online retailers Apple TV, Fandango at Home (aka the streaming platform formerly known as Vudu), Comcast Xfinity, Cox, and Microsoft Movies & TV will receive exclusive access to the film’s special extended edition, which includes another 20 minutes of footage. There’s no word on other bonus features included with digital copies of the movie, let alone whether the extended edition will also end up on the home media release for the 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD collectors among us. (An exact date for the physical media release is also yet to be announced.)

Again, it’s a bit of a bummer that “The Fall Guy” will no longer be exclusively available on the big screen for weeks to come, giving it a better chance to recoup its production budget and marketing costs. But for those who haven’t been able to safely and affordably make the trek to theaters, at least the movie will be coming to digital much earlier than expected.
