We’ve known for a while that Once Upon a Deadpool—the cleaned-up version of Deadpool 2—would be coming to theater and would riff off the Peter Falk/Fred Savage interplay of The Princess Bride. However, snazzy as it is, all we’d gotten was a poster and some production stills in the way of peeks at the film, which hits December 12th.
However, today, Christmas came early, as Fox just dropped the first trailer of Once Upon a Deadpool—complete with a grown-up Fred Savage and at the mercy of the Merc with a Mouth.
As promised, the film looks to be F-bomb free, but with enough new footage to entice fans debating whether or not to drop the price of a movie ticket on a remixed Deadpool 2. In the single minute in the trailer alone, Ryan Reynolds-as-Mr. Pool verbally cuts Up, pokes fun at Fox’s Marvel stable of movies, and trades verbal barbs with Savage.
Once Upon a Deadpool hits theaters on December 12th and will run for 12 days. A portion of the proceeds will go to the charity “Fuck Cancer.”
