Ryan Reynolds is front and center for Hallmark Channel's Christmas in July programming.

The Hallmark Channel is in full stride with its annual holiday-themed film slate and Reynolds, 44, who's a big fan of the movie marathon, is helping the network bring the Christmas season early this year.

In PEOPLE's exclusive clip, the actor says he "needs" the holiday movie season, adding that the films are like being "in a little snow globe" as he also promotes his latest film, Free Guy, in the hilarious ad.

His big-budget comedy follows Guy (Reynolds), a bank teller who lives in Free City who has everything he could possibly want — except love. When he falls for Jodie Comer's mysterious character Milly, she reveals a seemingly impossible truth.

"I have to tell you something really important," she said in the preview. "Guy, this world is a video game and in two days the game is going to shut down," before Reynold's character says, "What if we can save it?"
