DEADPOOL

It’s kind of a miracle that Deadpool even exists, after its titular character was nearly ruined by X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But this weekend, fans will finally have another chance to check out this Marvel Comics creation in an incarnation that’s much closer to the spirit of the original character.

Fox basically cut the budget of this film down to the bone, but despite this, I found the film to be a blast. Did it work for you? Was the plot too thin or just right? Did Deadpool’s schtick wear you out? Did the new X-Men characters make an impression?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Primary Instinct for Stills 8

Last year, /Film readers and /Filmcast listeners helped me finance and make a film with Stephen Tobolowsky. Soon afterwards, FilmBuff picked us up for distribution. Figuring out how to distribute a film is never an easy process. There are countless decisions to be made about timing of release, which platforms to use, and how to market on those platforms. All that being said, after going on sale last fall across all major VOD platforms, The Primary Instinct is now available to watch on Hulu. 

Hulu gives us the ability to reach millions of subscribers across a variety of different hardware and software platforms, but it’s up to us (the filmmakers) to get the word out about the film. So, if you enjoy the film, any Hulu reviews, Facebook posts, and tweets you have to support us would be greatly appreciated.

Those of you who live in a country where Hulu isn’t available can still purchase the film at VHX (with extras!). Hit the jump to watch the film on Hulu. And thanks to all who’ve helped support this little film on its journey thus far.
