Once Upon a Deadpool Trailer Drops

Sure to spawn countless holiday traditions, FOX has released the trailer for the imminent holiday classic Once Upon a Deadpool.

This isn’t a new installment of the wildly popular Deadpool franchise, so much as a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 with just enough added material to help holiday filmgoers justify that $13 ticket price. The trailer itself features child actor turned adult Fred Savage in a serendipitously timed play on Savage’s character from The Princess Bride (writer William Goldman passed away last week). Savage, duct-taped to a bed in a room decorated to look exactly like the scene from The Princess Bride, tries arguing with Deadpool over why he shouldn’t have to do this, before dropping a zinger that FOX Marvel films are like Beatles songs produced by Nickelback, horrifically offending Wade in the process. We’re also treated to scenes from Deadpool 2, as well as a few sneak peeks at the ostensibly added footage, including Wade telling an older couple holding balloons that he loved them in up.

Once Upon a Deadpool premieres in theatres December 12, 2018. According to 20th Century FOX, “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.”
