I am lauding 20th Century Fox’s promotional decisions for their Deadpool sequel, which opens in theaters June 1, 2018. While it’s become customary to spoil movies in order to get people into theaters, Fox is using the character of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) as the promotional tool instead of hot trailer shots. Shit, they haven’t even released a synopsis yet because, well, we don’t fucking need it. With that, here’s the first teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 that shows the creation of the hilarious Thanksgiving family photo with a short montage of non-spoilery footage. June is still a long ways away, but I do hope they can keep this sequel shrouded in as much mystery as possible.
Here’s the ridiculously funny synopsis of the first film:
“After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
David Leitch (John Wick) is directing from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
