In just a few short days, fans will be able to bring the box office sensation Deadpool home on Blu-ray and DVD. Just yesterday, we showed you a hilarious erectile dysfunction spoof promoting the home video release on May 10. Today we have something even better to feast your eyes on. A new six-minute gag reel from the Blu-ray and DVD release has surfaced, chocked full of outtakes, movie references and much more, featuring star Ryan Reynolds and the rest of the cast. If you thought Deadpool was fun to watch in theaters, it's clear from these bloopers that the cast and crew had just as much fun shooting this unconventional superhero adventure.
The gag reel surfaced on YouTube, which shows Ryan Reynolds dropping obscure movie references like The Golden Child, along with his unique Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation. We also get a slew of alternate jokes from T.J. Miller's Weasel, who comes up with different ways to describe Wade Wilson's deformed face. If that wasn't enough, we also see Morena Baccarin get stuck, Ryan Reynolds come up with catchy nicknames for Gina Carano's Angel Dust, and much more.
Deadpool has broken the record for the highest grossing R-rated movie ever, with a domestic take of $361.9 million and a worldwide tally of $761.7 million, from a $58 million budget. The movie shattered the record for biggest R-rated opening weekend with $132.4 million, which also marked the best debut in the history of 20th Century Fox. The studio is currently moving forward with the sequel Deadpool 2, which is expected to bring back Ryan Reynolds as the Merc With the Mouth, along with the entire creative team.
The Deadpool Blu-ray and DVD extras include Deleted and Extended scenes with optional commentary from director Tim Miller, a Gag Reel, and the featurette From Comics to Screen...to Screen, which shows the arduous process of bringing this beloved comic book character to life...Twice! There will also be Deadpool's Fun Sack, Audio Commentary with Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, plus a number of photo galleries. Director Tim Miller, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and star Ryan Reynolds are all returning for the sequel Deadpool 2, but we don't know when that will hit theaters quite yet.
Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Take a look at this new Deadpool Blu-ray gag reel before the biggest movie of the year comes home on Blu-ray and DVD next week.
