This is how you remind audiences that a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 is coming to theaters this week in the form of Once Upon a Deadpool. We’ve already seen a good amount of the back and forth between Deadpool and Fred Savage, reprising his childhood role from The Princess Bride, but a new promo features the longest scene yet between these two.
For those who don’t know, Ryan Reynolds is fiercely Canadian, and it looks like he’s bringing some of that maple pride to the Deadpool franchise because he puts up one hell of a defense for one of Canada’s most reviled exports: the rock band Nickelback. After Fred Savage makes an off-handed comment about Marvel movies licensed by 20th Century Fox being like The Beatles produced by Nickelback, Deadpool just can’t contain his frustration and he goes on quite the rant.

This continues to look like a vast improvement over the previous Godzilla film in every single way. Watch the Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer below.

Do you remember Triple Frontier? The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Zero Dark Thirty director Katherine Bigelow. Then it jumped to Netflix with Margin Call director J.C. Chandor at the helm, co-writing the script with Mark Boal, but it had a hard time holding onto a cast. Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg were both slated to lead the movie, and then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum were part of the cast before they all fell away.
Odds be damned, Triple Frontier finally made it in front of cameras. It still has an impressive cast, with Ben Affleck leading a team of Special Forces operatives played by Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal, and the first trailer makes it look like one of the best Netflix original movies yet.

If the X-Men franchise has been disappointing you in recent years, maybe you’ll take solace in a different kind of mutant superhero story that has flares of Watchmen, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Atomic Blonde all mixed together.
Umbrella Academy, based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, is a new series coming to Netflix in February, and the first trailer has just arrived with some 1980s pop music to usher in the story about a group of adopted misfits who must band together to stop the world from ending.
