DEADPOOL (2016) - Pre-Release

post #1 of 488
Thread Starter 

Seems like we may as well have a dedicated thread for this movie.

 

Ryan Reynolds just released this photo of Deadpool reading the issue where his character died, along with the statement "Smells like something died in here".

 

 

Loving the marketing on this thing. So much fun.

I am really pulling for this to be awesome and succeed.  

 

Not only because I feel sorry for how Reynolds has been treated and I've always been a fan of the guy (him and Parker Posey are the BEST parts of Blade Trinity) but I genuinely love the character of Deadpool.  Sure, he can sometimes be incredibly grating depending on the writers but in the right hands he's just hilarious and crazy and cool.

 

It's about time someone had some fun with the SH genre and Deadpool is just the character to do that with.

This has all the right ingredients to succeed. I've not read the script it's using but, if Freeman and others are correct, it's solid gold. Throw in an actor with really good comic timing as a character known for his comedic elements, and a perfect costume, and it's all looking great. The only random factor for me is the director, but I have my fingers crossed.

As far as the director goes....we should all remember that James Cameron was once a SFX guy too. I'm really hoping this guy is a well of untapped potential as a director...though I'm not expecting him to reach those heights but you never know..

Is that a super soaker? haha!

Man, it's like some magical flip was switched and this team of guys were suddenly allowed to not only make the movie they wanted to make how they wanted to make it, but they got full marketing support too.

 

Fox is a very different company and I for one am damn happy.

post #7 of 488
I wonder if Deadpool is a sitting or standing wiper.
post #8 of 488
Tom Rothman isn't there anymore, thank God.

Where'd he go recently so I can temper my expectations for whatever that poor, beleaguered studio is going to be putting out for the foreseeable future?

Hehe, Sony.

Seriously. It will be nice to have something different other than the Marvel movies, so I'm really hoping they pull this one off.

Yep, that sounds about right.

The more I see of this movie the more I'm getting excited for it.

post #13 of 488

Is this official?

 

 

This looks too good to not be official.

 

I've been told there was a similar fan art poster and Marvel liked it and remade it.

This was Ryan Reynolds' tweet a few weeks back:

 

 

 

Looks like the same poster. Maybe Reynolds just told Fox to pay whoever created it and use it as an official poster?

Did you submit this as a scoop?
post #16 of 488

My apologies, Johnny, I did not.  It was a tumblr link someone sent me saying it was inspired by fan art but the stuff at the bottom made me think it might be official.

 

Looks like it's the same as Reynolds tweet though.

post #17 of 488
Thread Starter 

Y'know, now that I think about it, perhaps Reynolds is right. Maybe there should be some sort of fan art award. Some of the stuff that gets made by fans can be really great; even surpassing the official stuff on occasion.

 

First person to mention Myers87 gets a bloody nose.

post #18 of 488
So you, then.

It's fine, as mentioned before, I would like people to be mindful of these things when they can.

Love that Deadpool.

post #21 of 488

What's exciting about Deadpool is that it looks like nothing we've seen yet out of the recent glut of comic book movies.

post #22 of 488
Superhero movie fatigue is something I personally dread happening because I love it all (mostly) so much. But then again, I group them up in my brain in a different way. To me superhero movies are just action movies taken to their most extreme.
Die Hard, Iron Man, Lethal Weapon, Winter Soldier, Temple of Doom, The Dark Knight. Empire Strikes Back etc etc.

I just lump them all together as good exciting movies. Good guys vs bad guys. Is that weird? So, I dunno it just kinda frustrates me that a certain sub-genre of something I love could get dialed way back (I know, I know....there's just shit loads of them these days) because studios won't diversify enough to keep audiences invested. That's why Deadpool gives me so much hope. It seems to be making most of the right moves so far. AND it looks unique. If they would just fuck completely off with all of the reboot, remake nonsense. All of those odd, nutty, non-pc characters getting their due, film-wise, you'd think would be good for the industry and keep ennui from setting in. In a perfect world anyway..

Bond fatigue set in during the 1980s.

Can't see this thread pop up and not think:

post #27 of 488

Here's what I love about the character of Deadpool...  

 

He is this pure dichotomy of the warring tooooooooones we can't shut up about.  His origin is as grimdark as you can get:  Mercenary who gets experimented on and given healing powers which cause the cancer cells already present in his body to expand exponentially and actually drive him insane from all the pain.  But that same insanity is what gives him this fun Looney Tunes feel where he's constantly breaking the fourth wall and doing silly shit.  

 

It's definitely something we haven't seen before and I am always up for that.

I bet Deadpool ends up being more like the recent glut of comic book movies than many people realize or expect.

post #29 of 488
I hope it's the next Crank. After Fury Road, I want to keep this crazy action-high going.

I highly doubt it.  Mainly because:

 

A) It's R-rated.  That alone shows it's not going to be like much of what's come out.

 

and more importantly,

 

B) It doesn't have nearly the same astronomical budget most SH movies have.  Which allows them to take more risks.

post #31 of 488

Listen, I'm really, really hoping this turns out to be great, but come on guys, it's a little shameful how soon we forget Kick-Ass. The movie. It is 100% acceptable to forgot the comic by any means necessary, including partial lobotomy. 

post #32 of 488

But then we got Kick-Ass 2. 

 

But no, Kick-Ass is a lot of fun and I'm really hoping that Deadpool is somewhat close to that.

Oh fuck yes those eyes are epic.
post #35 of 488

Man that suit looks great.

 

I also love what Reynolds says about wanting to kiss whoever leaked that test footage:

 

Quote:
  “And not just a little kiss,” he purrs, “but full on the mouth, sloppy, with tongue, for two straight minutes on live television, without commercial interruption. And then I’ll buy you dinner at Red Lobster, at least, and dessert.”

 

Such a romantic...

post #36 of 488
He should definitely be grateful.

please be good. please be good. please be good. please be good.

I wish to Christ almighty that Neveldine/Taylor were making this movie. Crank 2 is an exploitation masterpiece and has the sort of rampaging insanity that I want from a Deadpool movie.

 

I hope they get this song for the soundtrack.....

I love the Crank movies as much as the next guy but if you've seen Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.  You know why I'm glad they're not making this.

The problem is that they took an un-conventional comic and fucked it by casting a generic prettyboy as Kick-Ass while they didn't plumb the depth of depravity the way the comics do. I LOVE the Kick-Ass 2  comic and was crushed that they didn't go all the way with what should have been a big budget Troma film. I was particularly disappointed that they dropped the Times Square battle royale, for budgetary reasons, which would have been GLORIOUS in the hands of Lloyd Kaufman or the Neveldine/Taylor guys. Finally, Jason Yachanin (from Troma's Poultrygeist) would have been PERFECT as Kick-ass nevermind that he would have made for a great Spider-man!

I think they got stuck with a shit script from David S. Goyer and Co. and I don't blame them because Crank 1&2 are fucking great. Also, I'm LOVING the Deadpool suit. See how the material they used has texture but doesn't looking like a fucking cheese grater like the Superman suit Snyder employs.

Can't look at the title DEADPOOL without immediately thinking...

Yeah....I think most of us would disagree with that. Mark Millar's film adaptations work primarily "because" they do away with his nihlistic disdane he has for his audience.

I think Kick Ass is one of the more entertaining comic book movies ever made, honestly. 

post #46 of 488
I shan't link it of course but the footage is glorious. Absolutely glorious.
post #47 of 488
Good man. I would however like it if you run across a piece of news about this or whatever else to submit it as a scoop. The recent shake-up has been weird, but I'd like to see a little more effort towards that again.
post #48 of 488
Of course. Will do.
post #49 of 488
Awwwwwww yeah. That's what I'm talking about. I cannot imagine a more perfect movie for Reynolds. Fans of the character are going to shit.
post #50 of 488
It's proves me wrong in so many ways. "No way will they keep in all the gore. No way will he break the fourth wall."

Amazing.
