Fresh out of 20th Century Fox’s soon-to-be-owned-by-Disney film apparatus comes a brand new trailer for this summer’s most jokey action comedy, Untitled Deadpool Sequel. It’s a bit puzzling why Fox didn’t pay to show a clip from this during the Super Bowl this week, but we’ve got to assume it has something to do with the unfinished visual effects in this trailer (shame on you, guy). Still, we finally get a good look at Josh Brolin’s take on Cable and, to say the very least, this ain’t the same dude from the fucking Goonies anymore.
Well, there’s no way around it: This movie’s probably going to make a boatload of cash and annoy the highbrow-minded amongst us ceaselessly for months to come. Is there a Toy Story joke that immediately crashes head-on into a teabagging gag? You bet your ass. Are they doing their best to cut around the fact that TJ Miller is still in this film? Yep (we guess Christopher Plummer wasn’t available for reshoots). Does it feature at least two decent jokes? Yeah! Well, what else is there really to say about it? You already know if you’re going to see this damn movie, and no amount of Josh Brolin is going to change your mind.
Here’s the synopsis, which, once again, is absolutely wonderful:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor — finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
The Untitled Deadpool Sequel has actually moved up a few weeks (perhaps in order to compete with that other long-untitled film that just had its own trailer drop a few days ago), so you won’t have to wait much longer to see it when it drops on May 18.
