deadpool early buzz

There’s a reason it took so much time and effort for the Deadpool movie to come together – this character is a tough sell to anyone who doesn’t drop too much money at their local comic book retailer every Wednesday. Although popular amongst the initiated, he’s far from a household name and his oddball combination of goofy humor and extreme violence is a hard left turn from traditional cinematic super-heroics. We won’t know for a few more weeks whether or not ordinary people will embrace an R-rated superhero movie starring a character who is essentially a murderous, red-suited Bugs Bunny who has already been banned in China.

But do know this: Deadpool has screened early in Los Angeles and New York City and the response from fans has been very positive so far. We know this because they took to Twitter to express their enthusiasm with exclamation points and emojis.

We under a month away from seeing the wacky and dangerous Merc with a Mouth take the big screen properly in 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool. And while fans are extremely excited to see the film will all the cursing, violence, and nudity they were hoping for from the officially R-rated comic book flick starring Ryan Reynolds, the censors in China are less than thrilled with the film’s content. In fact, they have denied permission for the film to screen in China at all. Find out more below. Read More »

Deadpool New Mutants

Last weekend, 20th Century Fox delivered quite the fun Christmas gift in the form of two Deadpool trailers, a green-band trailer and a preferred, raunchy red-band trailer. Plus, a couple new photos debuted yesterday as well. But if that wasn’t enough Deadpool to tickle your fancy just the way the Merc with a Mouth likes, then this new batch of images from the movie might do the trick. Especially since they seem to create a link to another developing mutant-centric project at Fox.

Deadpool red-band trailer

Although X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool may belong to the same universe, they couldn’t look more different. The former promises tons of doom and gloom (as befits a movie about the lower-case-A apocalypse being waged by a capital-A Apocalypse), whereas the latter takes a much more irreverent, NSFW approach. But they do have one other thing in common: both have revealed new looks today, in advances of their releases next year. See new Deadpool photos and some intriguing X-Men concept art after the jump.  Read More »

deadpool trailer breakdown

I spent a good 15 minutes or so of my Christmas holiday explaining Deadpool to my in-laws. That new red band trailer had arrived online and they were so full of questions. Who is this guy? What’s his deal? When does the movie open? In other words, this purely anecdotal piece of evidence suggests that the Deadpool marketing is starting to do its job. If the older members of my extended family, already gently lowered into geekdom by the X-Men and Marvel Studios movies, are curious about Marvel’s “merc with a mouth,” then maybe this thing will play beyond the already initiated.

And while I explained the trailer in the living room, the internet was busy picking apart the trailer. And while internet commenters the world over were going through this thing shot-by-shot, director Tim Miller was sitting down to answer all (well, most) of your pressing questions. Let’s check out this official Deadpool trailer breakdown.

For the days leading up to Christmas, Deadpool has blessed us with the gift of comedy videos in anticipation of his new trailer. And now that Christmas day is here, 20th Century Fox says its time to open our presents:

“Are you in need of holiday cheer? Rejoice! For Deadpool’s all new Christmas trailer is here! It’s Christmas Day, when Deadpool decorates with trailers Red & Green. One that’s “nice” and one that’s “naughty” (the way it’s meant to be seen).”

The Deadpool Christmas trailers play with the idea of a superhero movie, and do a good job of selling this story as something different. We get an extended look at Colossus and a better look at the violent stylized action. Hit the jump now to watch both the new NSFW red band and SFW green band trailers for Deadpool.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

deadpool tv spot

Deadpool is tough nut to crack in the pages of a comic book, where just about anything can happen without anyone blinking an eye, so watching him make his way to the big screen has been an interesting experience. Although Wade Wilson is a superhero with abilities that push him beyond the realm of a normal human, his defining trait is his mouth. This guy talks. Constantly. And he often seems more than a little self-aware about the fact that he’s a comic book character.

The newest TV spot for director Tim Miller‘s upcoming Deadpool movie does everything that it can to sell this tricky character in 30 seconds. Whether or not Tim Miller’s film ultimately works is up in the air (we’ve got our fingers crossed), but we’ll say this much – they certainly seem to have nailed Deadpool himself, whose silliness has the potential to be overbearing if not handled with a deft touch.

Check out the new Deadpool TV spot after the jump.
