By next Saturday, you'll all have probably seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And you will also have seen a ton of new trailers for movies coming this spring and summer. As promised, 20th Century Fox is debuting what could be the most coveted of these sneak peeks with the latest footage from the Marvel X-Men spinoff Deadpool. But we're not just getting some measly old trailer. NO! We're getting three different teasers, all suited to different audiences.
While we don't know the exact day that these trailers will drop online, we do know that two of them will be attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you are seeing the movie in IMAX 3D, you will get an IMAX exclusive Deadpool trailer that is only playing with the LucasFilm release. It is the shortest of the three trailers, clocking in at 0:27. And it has been rated PG, so you can be guaranteed that it's safe for the whole family.
And if you see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a regular theater, you will get a brand-new Deadpool trailer that runs 2:24 and is also rated PG for general audiences. But if you're looking for R rated thrills, we're also getting a coveted red band trailer that will most likely make its debut on the internet. It runs the same length as the green band trailer, but will likely include all the foul language and gore you definitely won't get with Disney's release.
The three Deadpool trailers were just recently classified by the Alberta Film Ratings website. While these trailers will be in theaters this Thursday, it isn't known if we'll get an advanced look before then. There are a number of other new trailers that will play in front of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which add up to almost 20 minutes of previews that you'll have to sit through before getting what you truly came for.
Two of these new trailers have already debuted online over the course of the past week. We've already seen the latest teasers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. And we've seen the trailers for Warcraft and The Jungle Book. What we haven't seen leading into this week is the teaser for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which drops online this Tuesday. It runs 1:45. And we're getting our first look at Star Trek Beyond with 1:25 worth of footage. It isn't known when that sequel trailer will drop on the Internet. If that wasn't enough for you, we're also getting the first look at Independence Day: Resurgence.
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. What do you think? Too many trailers?
