Film This Weekend: Deadpool
Posted in: FILM THIS WEEKEND
It’s the weekend Marvel fans had been waiting for, but things just got bigger because Deadpool is pitted against the sequel of a 90s cult comedy starring Ben Stiller. Here’s what is in store at the box office this week!
Ryan Reynolds has practically been everywhere promoting this film for the past year and the makers have created what can be the most elaborate and genius promotion strategies for a film in recent times. Naturally, the expectations bar has been set quite high for the film that is a spin off from Marvel’s X-Men series.
“Deadpool” is Marvel’s superhero film with a twist. What sets his character apart from the rest of the clan is his motor-mouth attitude and morbid sense of humor coupled with a dark past.
The film relays the origin story for Deadpool. When Wade Wilson, a former mercenary, is subjected to a rogue experiment it gives him accelerated healing powers. What we get is a first of its kind, highly edgy and dark, adult superhero film. Deadpool has already impressed the critics for keeping up with the tones of the comic series.
Directed by Tim Miller, the movie also stars Ed Skrein, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano and T.J. Miller in pivotal roles.
So does Deadpool live up to the expectations? – Oh sure it does and how!
