Want to celebrate the holidays with a fun superhero movie like Deadpool 2 but worried about all that swearing and graphic violence? Well, good news! There’s a family friendly(ish), holiday-themed PG-13 reimagining of Deadpool 2 being delivered just in time for Christmas – titled Once Upon a Deadpool – and even better, $1 from every ticket sold will go to the charity F*ck Cancer!
That Shelf wants to send you and a friend to advance screenings of Once Upon a Deadpool in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal on Tuesday, December 11 – courtesy of 20th Century Fox!
Here’s the Once Upon a Deadpool elevator pitch from Fox, Ryan Reynolds, and beloved former child actor Fred Savage:
To kick off the holiday season, the (sometimes) good guy in red is delivering the official trailer for Once Upon a Deadpool from 20th Century Fox! 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.
