As Wade Wilson explains in the latest Deadpool sneak peek, he never asked to be super, and he's no hero. This TV spot is for the IMAX release of 20th Century Fox's big, bad R rated Marvel adventure. And it delivers a massive man in a red suit ready to wreck havoc for the love of his life. As we've seen in previous previews, this is a Valentine's movie, after all. So you can expect some IMAX sized thrills along with gigantic laughs and a few gut wrenching emotional sequences. And it's all contained in this quick clip, with comes screaming forth like a speeding train ready to take down anything in its path!
This latest 30 second sneak peek doesn't really give us any more new footage, but it's edited slightly to enhance the overall power that will be playing out on the big screen in just a few weeks. Should you see Deadpool in IMAX? The latest footage certainly plays like something that deserves to be seen in the most immersive environment possible. We get careening cars, swinging swords, and plenty of bullets to drive the notion home.
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.
Box office analysts started tracking the superhero adventure last week, with some even claiming that it could hit north of $60 million in its opening frame. The 20th Century Fox film will go up against Warner Bros. romantic comedy How to Be Single, which doesn't have any early tracking data yet, and Paramount's comedy sequel Zoolander 2, which analysts are predicting will open with $20 million. If these projections are accurate, the R-rated Deadpool will have a higher opening weekend than both the original X-Men and X-Men: First Class.
Ryan Reynolds stars as the Merc With the Mouth, with a supporting cast that includes Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Olesia Shewchuk, Style Dayne, Rachel Sheen and Dan Zachary. Tim Miller makes his directorial debut with Deadpool, working from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool is based on the Marvel comic book series created by Rob Liefeld. Take a look at the new IMAX TV spot for Deadpool. It's a real 'cliffhanger'!
