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. But is there anyone even slightly interested in such an idea? Even with the bonus incentive of a portion of the proceeds going to charity, this last-minute cash-grab fails to justify its existence.

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.

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.

Watch the Once Upon a Deadpool trailer below.

Before the weekend kicked off, the surprise news came from 20th Century Fox that an Untitled Deadpool Movie would suddenly be dropping into the December 21, 2018 release date that was once occupied by Alita: Battle Angel. Word on the street is that instead of being an entirely new Deadpool movie, this will be a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, and a photo posted online by Ryan Reynolds would seem to indicate how that’s going to work, and it involves Fred Savage reprising his role from The Princess Bride.

Netflix has renewed director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and writer Francesca Delbanco‘s comedy series, Friends from College, for a second season. Stoller and Delbanco’s show wasn’t reviewed kindly by most critics, but with a season 2 on the way, the sad comedy must’ve found its audience. The Netflix program features an excellent cast as a very flawed group of friends. They scored a lot of laughs and some empathy during season one, which is a surprisingly pleasant watch as it’s not always about the most pleasant subjects.
Below, learn more about Friends from College season 2.
