Christmas is finally here. Just in time for the holidays, 20th Century Fox has released a brand-new trailer for the long-awaited, highly anticipated Deadpool movie, which now less than two months away. You can check out the newest trailer, in two different versions in the player below. Fair warning that the Red Band trailer is NSFW. The Green Band trailer is SFW though.
It’s hard to say anything bad about the trailers for this film so far. That is unless are not much of a fan of the character’s style and his particular brand of humor. It definitely looks like director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have really captured the tone and attitude of the Deadpool comics and character. Even the marketing and ad campaign for the film, including these trailers, is filled with Deadpool’s meta and fourth-wall-breaking style of humor. These trailers do a great job of selling the fact that this is a “different’ type of comic book superhero movie. It really looks like the film is embracing the dark humor and violent mayhem of the character.
Since this film will probably have a considerably lower budget in comparison to X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, that probably means the filmmakers get away with a lot more. Case in point, this film is clearly R-rated, and based on the Red Band trailer, the film will take full advantage of that rating. It’s a breath of fresh air after what happened with the Deadpool character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which enraged a great deal of Deadpool fans, despite Ryan Reynolds casting as Wade Wilson.
Deadpool finally arrives in theaters on February 12, 2016. It’s hard to believe the film is really only about two months away. You can check out the film synopsis below:
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
