Fans couldn't believe their eyes as Ryan Gosling appeared at Universal Studios Hollywood and improvised with the crowd in the pre-show of "The Fall Guy Stuntacular," which is based on his new movie, "The Fall Guy." The stunt show is famously just before the equally famous Waterworld stunt show, and it was all caught on an instantly viral social media video.

@livelikethemovies Can you believe Ryan Gosling showed up for @TheFallGuyMovie stuntacular. We were so shocked and excited!! #UniversalStudiosHollywood #TheFallGuy #FallGuyMovie #RyanGosling #Stunt #ThemeParks ? original sound - livelikethemovies
To make the event all the more exciting, Gosling was accompanied by the movie's director, David Leitch.

The background stunt of having jet skis was with funny comments of Gosling as he refused to come near to high-actioned stunts by stating, "No, I just came out to say hi." In addition to making the crowd quite stirred up, it became an interesting promotional stunt for his new movie.

Fall Guy: Genre-Bending Tribute

"The Fall Guy" is a genre-bending salute to the world of stuntmen; it is at the same time a comedy, drama, and action. It's that kind of movie Gosling called "a love letter to the stunt community," really giving everyone goosebumps with its warm reception and positive reviews.

The film is slated to be in theaters on May 3, promising to pull significant attention with its engaging narrative and star-studded cast. "The Fall Guy Stuntacular Pre-Show" will remain on display at Universal Studios until May 19, giving spectators the chance to get a taste of the type of death-defying action they can expect to see in the movie.

Of course, no other appearance is likely to be drawn out by Gosling right now, and his presence has set off quite the experience for fans as well as a general buzz about the film. "The Fall Guy" stars Gosling as Colt Seavers, the world-weary stuntman who turns away from the limelight to take care of himself, only to be dragged back into the blood and gunpowder in a manner befitting his skills.

The movie also encapsulates the concept of professional jealousy, personal fortitude, and stars a number of on-screen interactions between Colt and Jody Moreno, who is directing the in-film. This new cinematic endeavor finds inspiration from the 1980s television series of the same name that once was part of the ABC lineup for five seasons.

As Gosling steps in as a character that was portrayed years ago by Lee Majors, he adds a modern element to this beloved franchise that feels new to today's audiences yet will still resonate with the longtime fans.
