    Here's a terrific, nutty, and warning very R-rated teaser trailer for the new Deadpool 2, which opens in one year.

    I'm baffled as to how they got to use the John Williams Superman music!

    Yep. They showed part of this before Logan yesterday. Very funny. (It plugs Logan and vice versa, while making fun of Superman.) I laughed out loud at the show yesterday.
  3. I found the meta humor here pretty funny (like the first Deadpool film). Saw this before Logan. We get the Fox logo then this and then the movie. Caught me by surprise.

    here's the story at the end of the clip

    Deadpool 2's Teaser Text Included an Essay on The Old Man and The Sea

    A very slightly expanded version of the short was released online today, but both versions include a lengthy wall of text at the end, which zips past viewers faster than any human being could actually read.

    If you’re one of the few who picked up the first few words before they disappeared from the screen, you’ll know that it has something to do with Ernest Hemingway’s classic novel, “The Old Man and the Sea.” The book is required reading for many students, and it seems Deadpool is no exception, as the text is an over 700-word essay in Wade Wilson’s voice, detailing the plot of the book.

    The fine folks over at Comic Book were kind enough to break the text down (even including handy dandy paragraph breaks!) for easy reading online. Deadpool clearly doesn’t write his essays in MLA format,
    The Old Man and the Sea is the story of a fight between an elderly, accomplished fisherman, Santiago, and a really big fish. Like… HUGE. The story opens with Santiago suffering eighty-four days without catching a fish because he’s the unluckiest son-of-a-bitch on planet earth. Honestly, if you were in a boat for eighty-four days, it’d be hard to NOT catch a fish… even by accident. Santiago was so unlucky that his apprentice, Manolin, was forbidden by his Ma and Pa to fish with him. But as The Fresh Prince used to say, ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’. So the boy visits Santiago’s shack anyway.

    Ignoring the inherent risks of unsupervised playtime with an elderly man who talks to himself, Manolin helps out, moving Santiago’s fishing gear, making food and talking about baseball. Especially Joe DiMaggio; who used to bump fuzzies with Marilyn Monroe. The next day, Santiago tells Manolin that he’s going way out into the Gulf Stream. WAY OUT north of Cuba. Lady luck is returning!

    On the eighty-fifth day of his crappy luck, Santiago drops his lines, and by noon, gets a bite from what feels like a big ass fish. He’s sure it’s a winner. He fights and fights and fights but can’t pull the monster in. Santiago’s leaky old boat is pulled by the fish for two days and nights as he holds on for dear life. Even though he’s bloody and beat, Santiago begins to appreciate this mighty adversary. He starts calling him “brother” or maybe even, “bro.” It’s sort of a love story if you really think about it. And like most romantic comedies, the reader pictures a delightful outfit changing montage, followed by the inevitable interspecies wedding.

    But on the third day, Santiago is freakin’ EXHAUSTED, and decides he just wants the fish to do what he says and not always swim wherever it wants. So he stabs it. With a f***ing harpoon. It’s a mess. Super gross. Blood everywhere. Because, like many men his age, Santiago has difficulty expressing his emotions and fears with words – instead giving in to base desires – and imposing his gigantically terrible positions on any given subject through unblinking violence. Typical.

    Anyway, he straps the marlin to the side of his skiff and hits the road home, ready to act like a total show off to everyone and probably gouge people on the price. But guess what? Pretty soon sharks begin to attack the bleeding marlin’s carcass, because we all know, life is a tragic opera and just when you think you’ve finally found something good and true, sharks come along and rip it all to f***ing shreds while dry-humping your dignity with their crazy-weird shark dicks. Sure, Santiago tries killing a few of them, but drops his harpoon because his hands are just as old as he is. By nighttime, the sharks have pretty much eaten the entire marlin.

    Only a bleach-white skeleton remains, silently mocking him in the murky darkness. Santiago realizes he’s still unlucky. REALLY unlucky. (Duh!) He calls the sharks “dream killers”. Which isn’t really all that fair. I mean, the sharks were just doing their job and the marlin… Jesus, don’t even get me started on the marlin! It was just hanging out one day, minding it’s own business, maybe thinking about ways it could be a better provider for it’s family and WHAM! Harpoon in the brain. Who’s the “dream killer” now, f***face? The hypocrisy is pretty much boundless at this point.

    Eventually Santiago makes it ashore. Leaving the bones of the marlin and the boat, he hobbles to his shack. He makes it home and crashes, like I said – he’s super tired. The next morning a group of fishermen gather around Santiago’s boat. One measures the skeleton and, holy ****-shingles! It’s over 18 feet! The head of the fish is given to Pedrico (strange that this is the first mention of him) and the other fishermen ask Manolin to send their glad tidings to the old man.

    Manolin brings Santiago newspapers and coffee when he wakes and they decide to fish together again. Many years later, there’s a Red Lobster Restaurant in nearly every city in America, offering a casual dining experience and convenient parking.

    If you haven’t read “The Old Man and the Sea”, now you don’t have to! Why is Deadpool so interested in this particular tale? It could be due to it sharing themes with Logan, but the smart money’s on Deadpool 2 being a word for word adaptation of the book, with Cable playing Santiago, and Deadpool playing the fish.

    Hopefully that teaser trailer scene will not be used in the final film in a year's time.
    As is, not funny. Amusing but too long and predictable.

    Hope Deadpool 2 is good, they had half of downtown Vancouver shut down today (slight exageration but not by much) for filming. Good thing it was a stat holiday otherwise traffic would have been even worse.

    Bruce Willis just started shooting his next action film in Downtown Cincinnati this week, called "Reprisal". Every time a movie is made in Cincinnati, they seem to have to close off just a street or two where it is filming for that day. I don't recall any headaches for any movie ever being filmed in Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky. I do remember the hype when scenes for "Rainman" were filmed in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky when Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman were in town. At that time, I was in college and had a part time job (during football offseason) and worked at a carpet store. I remember we had to lay down new carpet at a convent in Northern Kentucky prior to filming (The autism facility that Dustin Hoffman was at in the beginning of the movie, where Tom Cruise took custody, was filmed at that convent.) A year or two later, when I was still in college or grad school, "Fresh Horses" with Andrew McCarthy, Molly Ringwald and Ben Stiller was being filmed. The university classroom scenes were shot on University of Cincinnati's campus and some of the "rural" parts were shot in Northern Kentucky. That was a big thing on campus during that time. Also, one of the houses used in the rural scenes was actually owned by a regular citizen. They paid that family big money to let them use the house and also paid for them to stay at a hotel during the entire time it was being used (in addition to any remodeling/refurbishments made to the house.) The entire production crew and actors stayed at a hotel in Northern Kentucky a couple miles from my house. It was a hangout too because it had a nightclub and bar. I used to see Andrew McCarthy and his entourage partying there. He had his own private backroom to party in, but he would come out into the regular area and mingle too. I knew a bouncer at that club who said McCarthy and his entourage used a lot of nose candy for the month or so they were there. The only person from the entire crew who didn't stay at the hotel was Molly Ringwald (and her people.) McCarthy told everyone who asked where she was that she was a snob and thought she was too good for that hotel. So she stayed at the most expensive, highest rated star hotel in Cincinnati, where all the bigshots and big celebs stay when they come to Cincinnati.

    Good release date.
    Summer not so good.
  21. The first Deadpool came out of nowhere to become a huge hit, using probably the most brilliant ad campaign of the past decade. It even took Fox by surprise. It turned out so well because the studio left it mostly alone during development since it had modest expectations.

    Everything I've seen related to Deadpool 2 indicates Fox executives are meddling with its formula this time because this is now expected to be a major franchise.
