So, Ryan Reynold’s has an awesome Christmas gift to give to the kids this year. A PG-13 version of Deadpool 2! That’s right, Deadpool 2 will hit theaters (again) for a twelve-day run.
Now, this isn’t just an edited down version of a sequel. Nope! So, what makes this film different? Aside from being able to take the kids and getting to enjoy the Deadpoolish awesomeness… as a family. There are some newly added scenes, which means Deadpool fans have to run out and see it again. Because… it’s Deadpool! That’s really all the reason you need, everything else is just a bonus.
Since this is a nicer, friendlier version of Deadpool, they’ve decided to give the movie a different title. This time around it’s called Once Upon A Deadpool and the trailer is… freaking awesome!
What made Ryan Reynold finally fold and do a PG-13 version of Deadpool, since he said he didn’t want to? Well, this is what Reynold’s had to say about it. “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006. I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”
As for the proceeds go to charity. For every ticket sold, $1 will be donated to F**K Cancer, which is a really cool deal. For those that don’t know, F**k Cancer is a nonprofit dedicated to early detection and prevention. Now for the Fred Savage part. Once you watch the trailer, you see why it was so important to kidnap Savage and Reynolds was brilliant for doing it.
I thought it was super cool that Savage was willing to revisit an old character and let Reynolds put a Deadpool spin on things. The meshing of The Princess Bride (1987) and Deadpool is something I never thought I’d want to see, but I’m glad I did.
Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters December 12, 2018, for twelve days!
