Deadpool Holds Fred Savage Captive in First Trailer For ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL
Fox has released the first trailer for the PG-13 version of Deadpool 2, which is called Once Upon a Deadpool, and it looks like it’s going to be great holiday fun for the whole family!
It’s going to be interesting to see how the movie plays out with all of the naughty stuff being removed and edited. But the addition of Fred Savage being held captive by Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) in an effort to recreate The Princess Bride‘s storytelling element is a genius move to make a film that many of us have already seen fell fresh and new.
There’s a great part at the end of the trailer where Savage rips into the Marvel/Fox films. I’m sure you’ll all k=get a kick out of this. Here’s the information and synopsis that was released with the trailer:
To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.
"Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006," Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. "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..."
Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage's starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab”
For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer - previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of Once Upon A Deadpool’s release.
Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters on December 12th. Enjoy the trailer!
