I’m not big on re-editing R-rated films for PG-13 re-releases but at least with Once Upon A Deadpool, their heart is in the right place.
$1 from every ticket sale will go to the cancer charity F*** Cancer. One of the lovely things Ryan Reynolds has done is have multiple kids with cancer visit the set and a reason for the PG-13 cut could be to allow younger fans to watch the film. Also, Reynolds has mentioned gathering proceeds for a cancer charity be a key condition to the studio.
20th Century Fox has dropped a new trailer for the December 12th release, with Fred Savage taking a direct shot at the Fox/Marvel movies.
On December 12, Deadpool 2 is back in theaters with zero F’s given To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence. “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…” Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, “while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab” 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.
