once upon a deadpool review

Once Upon a Deadpool hopes to be a Deadpool for a wider audience during the holiday season, featuring a heavily edited PG-13 version of Deadpool 2.

Once Upon a Deadpool Nickelback Video

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.

Once Upon a Deadpool Extra Footage

This Christmas, fans of Deadpool are getting an interesting new gift in the form of a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, the R-rated comic book sequel that has become such a success largely because 20th Century Fox allowed Ryan Reynolds to give the Merc with a Mouth his due diligence. But the studio loves raking in more cash, and if they can get families into theaters to give Deadpool a shot with a more tame cut of the comic book blockbuster, why not?

But what about fans who have already seen Deadpool 2? Is this going to be worth it for them to buy another ticket to a movie that has removed the profanity and blood, key selling points of the original version? A new teaser for the re-release, titled Once Upon a Deadpool, provides some insight into how much new material fans will get. Deadpool 2 co-star Julian Dennison recently appeared in an international teaser for the movie, and he reveals just how much extra footage will be in the recut. Read More »

That scamp Deadpool is back with Once Upon a Deadpool, a PG-13 edit of Deadpool 2 that removes most of the naughty stuff, and throws in Fred Savage for good measure. The re-edited sequel will find its way into theaters just in time for the holiday season, netting even more money for Fox and hopefully satiating greedy, gluttonous Deadpool fans who can’t get their fill of Ryan Reynold‘s smart-ass superhero. Watch the Once Upon a Deadpool trailer below.

Once Upon a Deadpool Poster

Earlier this week, we got the official details on the PG-13 re-release of the R-rated comic book sequel Deadpool 2.
