The Fall Guy, Ryan Gosling's upcoming action flick, has broken a pretty impressive Guinness World Record.

At a special screening in Los Angeles, Gosling and co-star Emily Blunt presented stunt driver Logan Holladay with the Guinness World Record for most cannon rolls in a car. Per a press release from Universal Studios, a cannon roll involves attaching a cannon-like apparatus beneath a car that shoots toward the ground. As the car reaches its designated speed, the cannon mechanism is triggered and the car is propelled into a series of rolls.

Holladay, Gosling's stunt double, has performed stunts for Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, Nope, and Logan. He completed eight and a half cannon rolls. The record was previously held by stunt performer Adam Kirley who completed seven cannon rolls while filming Casino Royale.

"The cannon roll is a classic stunt and was a must-have for this film," said director David Leitch. And since we were making a movie that honors the work of stunt performers, we didn't just set out to achieve the cannon roll; we set out to break records and make a statement. Logan executed it flawlessly and showcased why he's a standout in the stunt community."

Adapted from the TV show of the same name, which originally aired between 1981 and 1986, The Fall Guy stars Gosling as a retired stuntman who springs back into action when the star of a big studio movie suddenly disappears. The cast includes Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Stephanie Hsu, Hannah Waddingham, and Winston Duke.

The Fall Guy hits theaters on May 3. For more, check out our list of the most exciting upcoming movies in 2024 and beyond.
