A teaser trailer for Once Upon a Deadpool has just been released, and it’s essentially a remix of Deadpool 2 – told by Ryan Reynolds to actor Fred Savage.
Yeah, it’s a little weird.
However, Deadpool‘s 18+ rating has been reduced for Once Upon a Deadpool , with the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) deeming it suitable for ages 15+. For America, you’ll be getting it rated PG-13.
Speaking to Deadline, Reynolds said: “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006.
“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.”
i can’t wait for the new christmas tradition of watching ‘once upon a deadpool’ with hot chocolate,, gonna be iconic

If you’re keen to check the remixed movie out then you’ll be glad to know that you’ll also be helping the charity ‘F*ck Cancer’ – which for occasion, has been renamed ‘Fudge Cancer.’
$1 from each movie ticket sold will be donated to the charity thanks to 20th Century Fox.
Once Upon a Deadpool will release on 12th December 2018. Will you be checking it out?
