Sure its a Wednesday but that is as good a day as any to showcase a film that will be a limited run like “Once Upon A Deadpool” which opens today in select theaters for a limited time. I’ve talked about this before and if you missed the trailer posted HERE and that discussion, know that its the PG-13 version of “Deadpool 2”. Let’s check out the holiday themed poster along with some casting and the premise that was
stolen from the Official YouTube.
About The Film:
To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.
“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”
Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab”
For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer – previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of Once Upon A Deadpool’s release.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I think this is a fun idea I am not too certain I will be able to catch it in the theaters based on the heavy holiday itinerary that I am already dealing with. Who knows, maybe I will change my mind about that. Wednesday is New Comic Book Day and the theater is right next to my local store so I will toss a coin about it. What about you readers? Will you be bringing the kiddies out to this safe for larger audiences version of “Deadpool 2”? Chime in down below in the comments and once again I must stress that you bring your own kids to the film and not any random strangers. Closing up let me remind you that “Mortal Engines”, “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” and “Aquaman” are all opening up in the coming days as well and will keep you entertained for the holiday season. I’m game.
