The poster for the upcoming PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 was released today...
Ryan Reynolds has shared the new Once Upon a Deadpool poster, featuring his titular character and Fred Savage riding on top of a reindeer for Deadpool 2’s PG-13 cut that will be arriving in theaters for a limited time starting on December 12 and ending on Christmas Eve.
Once Upon a Deadpool will contain footage from Deadpool 2, but edited down to a PG-13 format which means cutting some of the violence and language. Fans can also expect new footage “in the form of a framing sequence” in the revamped film that Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick devised for the project.
Savage will reprise his role from the 1987 classic, The Princess Bride, in the new framing sequence alongside Reynold’s Deadpool. Eight scenes were filmed for the new footage in the upcoming project.
I'll be really curious to see how this is received and how they were capable of editing that film down to anything near a PG-13 rating. My guess is that there will be a lot of funny things done in the editing room and said in those new scenes to make sure it's still just as hilarious as the original.
I may just have to see that.
That version of the film opens on December 12th.
