Everyone here in the United States got to see Deadpool back in February, and even if you didn’t catch it in theaters, it’s been available on home video for about a month now. But over in Japan, audiences just got to see the Merc with a Mouth on the big screen when it arrived on June 1. In addition, they’re also still waiting to see X-Men: Apocalypse when it arrives on August 11.
What’s cool is that despite the long wait to see these movies after they’ve hit the US, our friends in Japan get to see some fun cross-promotional marketing featuring Deadpool popping up after the new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer. Even more amusing is that the Merc with a Mouth actually throws some shade on 20th Century Fox.

There may not be a film as surprisingly satisfying that exceeds so many expectations as Deadpool. The movie took 11 years to get off the ground after the character was thrown onto the screen carelessly in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and for fans who wanted to see the real Merc with a Mouth on the big screen, it was well worth the wait.
Now that Deadpool has hit Blu-Ray and DVD as of yesterday, it’s time for Honest Trailers to step in and do some mocking of their own. But as we’ve seen, Deadpool doesn’t follow anybody’s rules, he invades his own Honest Trailer to mock himself. And yes, Ryan Reynolds really stepped in to do some voiceover for the Deadpool Honest Trailer, complete with his own movie trailer voice.

By any measure, Deadpool was a smash hit. It’s had a record-breaking box office run, somersaulting above even the highest projections, and managed to satisfy hardcore fans, total newcomers and discerning critics in one fell swoop. It put Ryan Reynolds back in Hollywood’s good graces after a string of disappointments (including another superhero movie, Green Lantern) and sparked speculation about a “Deadpool effect” that could see more funny, R-rated superhero movies hitting theaters.
No surprise, then, that 20th Century Fox are eager to stay on the good side of the Merc with a Mouth. At CinemaCon today, the studio officially confirmed what we already basically knew: that a Deadpool 2 is on the way. Read More »

Judging by Deadpool‘s stunning $756 million box office total, just about everyone who wants to see the Merc with a Mouth lead his own feature film, already has. But if you want to see even more of the charmingly irreverent antihero, you’ll get your chance in a few short weeks when he hits home video.
To give you a little taste of the extras in store, 20th Century Fox has revealed a brand-new deleted scene showing Deadpool getting up to his usual antics: beating up bad guys, hanging out at the bar, celebrating the holidays… and indulging in lots and lots of self-pleasure.

It’s been just over a month since Deadpool hit theaters, and the film is still making some solid bank at the box office, having just crossed $700 million worldwide. That’s not bad for an R-rated comic book flick that 20th Century Fox dragged its feet to take a chance on. And now that plenty of people have seen the movie, they want to know how it was made, especially after finding out that it only cost $58 million to produce, though that doesn’t include the marketing onslaught cost.
Thankfully, a Deadpool visual effects reel has surfaced online with a focus on the visual effects that were employed to create the opening action sequence that takes place on the highway. Actually that action sequence plays out for quite awhile with flashbacks interspersed, so it’s a big chunk of the movie. And it might surprise you to see how much was created in post-production.

It’s no secret that Deadpool is all the rage right now, and a sequel is already in development at 20th Century Fox. With a visual effects wizard like Tim Miller behind the camera as director for the first time, it’s no surprise to see how visual effects were utilized perfectly to help bring Deadpool to life, making his masked face express a variety of emotions like the character does in the comic. But even more interesting is how five different actors and a team of special effects artists were used to bring the metal mutant Colossus to life in a completely different way than we’d seen on the big screen before. Find out how it was done after the jump. Read More »
