20th Century Fox has released the first Once Upon a Deadpool trailer, offering a look at the new PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2. Fox is releasing a new cut of the film in theaters for a special limited theatrical engagement this holiday season. This new cut of Deadpool 2 will be rated PG-13, and includes a frame story with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool telling the story of Deadpool 2 to a kidnapped Fred Savage, which is a jokey ripoff of the frame story from The Princess Bride. The idea was conceived by Deadpool 2 writers Reynolds, Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick, so it’s not exactly some shameless ploy by the studio to simply make more money, but a nice experiment to see how the fans react to a Deadpool PG-13 rating. This new footage was shot in secret after Deadpool 2 hit theaters
The best part of Once Upon a Deadpool, however, is that for every ticket sold $1 will be donated to the charity F–ck Cancer, which is being retitled “Fudge Cancer” for the purposes of this PG-13 release.
Check out the trailer below which hits theatres December 2 and will run only until Christmas Eve:
Season's Greetings !!!!
