Thursday’s suck. On one hand, they’re a reminder that there’s still another day left to endure before the weekend shenanigans begins. On the other, though, it’s business as usual and nothing really exciting ever happens — or maybe it does for you, I don’t know you.
Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that Ryan Reynolds just spiced up an otherwise mundane day by sharing a brand new trailer for Deadpool 2 on Twitter earlier.
The untitled sequel sees Reynolds return as the titular hero. For this outing he’ll be joined by Josh Brolin as the kid-hunting and villainous Cable. Naturally, the Merc with the mouth fights for what’s right and he isn’t afraid to get dirty either, so he steps up to protect the poor little bastard.
The trailer gives us more idea of what to expect, as IMDB simply lists it as an adventure where “Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor — finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
I hope all of that is legit. For now, check out the trailer below:
The Marc with a mouth’s first solo outing on the big screen was an unexpected mega hit when it was released in 2016. Made for a modest budget of $57 million, it went on to dominate the box office with its fourth-wall breaking theatrics, R-rated violence, and potty humour. In the sea of family-friendly superhero movies, it was refreshing to see one with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek that also poked fun at its counterparts.
Thanks to the first Deadpool’s success, we got movies like Logan and the upcoming New Mutants and Venom. While this is far much lighter in tone compared to the wave of adult-natured superhero fare it spawned, this looks like a perfect summer blockbuster for those who like a little humour with their blood-letting entertainment.
John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is at the helm following the departure of previous maestro, Tim Miller. That’s exciting news, since Leitch is one of the best action directors in Hollywood right now and everything he touches is gold. The audience feedback from test screenings has also been highly positive — especially after the reshoots based on the response from previous audiences was taken on board. The fans spoke, the filmmakers listened, and now we impatiently await May 18, 2018 so we can check out the film for ourselves.
Are you excited for Deadpool 2?
