Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively walked the red carpet together at the world premiere of Free Guy.

The film, directed by Shawn Levy, follows Guy, played by Reynolds, as he realizes that he is a background character in a video game called Free City. The non-player character, or NPC, becomes self-aware and races against time to become the hero of the game before the developers can shut it down.

The sci-fi action comedy also features Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Joe Keery, Taika Waititi and Camille Kostek.

The premiere appeared to be a date night for the two celebrity parents as their three young daughters were nowhere to be seen. Lively and Reynolds were often seen posing together: Lively in a glittering pink sequin gown with a middle cutout and Reynolds in a khaki suit and plaid shirt. The 33-year-old Gossip Girl star also wore her long blonde hair in a sleeked-back ponytail.

Her husband, for his part, was beaming throughout the entire event, even posting about it on Instagram.

In a light-hearted joke, Reynolds captioned the series of three photos, “What a huge night for #FreeGuy. And what a huge night for @blakelively because this means we’re Instagram official. I know how important that was to her.”

The couple’s smiles are well-deserved as the movie’s first reviews are largely positive. While Free Guy will not be available on streaming platforms for quite some time, the film will open in theatres across the country on August 13.
