IMAX Drops an Awesome Poster + Teaser for the 'Deadpool' Movie
Size matters. At least when it comes to Deadpool's team. IMAX has unveiled this awesome new poster for the upcoming Deadpool movie, starring Ryan Reynolds as the fourth-wall-breakin' Merc with a Mouth. The marketing for this movie has been absolutely brilliant, fully embracing the mock-everything attitude of Deadpool himself. This IMAX poster (and a short new trailer below) continues to follow that trend by going overboard on absurdity and mockery, and it's perfect. I can't think of any other movie or character that this poster would work for, and it's crazy they actually approved this. Makes me look forward to this even more.
Here's the awesome new poster for Tim Miller's Deadpool movie, released originally direct from IMAX:
And here's the 30-second teaser trailer for Deadpool that is playing in front of Star Wars in IMAX only:
Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary known for his or his sarcastic, talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall. The film will also include T.J. Miller ("Silicon Valley), Morena Baccarin ("Homeland"), Gina Carano (Haywire) and Ed Skein (The Transporter Refueled). Filming took place in Vancouver. Fox will release Deadpool on February 16th early next year.
