What have we learnt from the latest clip, well there’s going to be some sword-driven action in strip clubs, some decapitations and the forming of X-Force: ‘a super-duper f*cking group’ of mutants strong, flexible and ‘young enough to carry their own franchise for 10 to 12 years.’ You can always count on Wade to tell it like it is.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool 2‘s test scores have come back even higher than the first, as audiences loved seeing the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ back on the big screen.
After completing six days of reshoots last month, Deadpool 2 earned a high score of 98 in its final screening with test audiences.
This is an improvement on the scores for the first two screenings which came in at 91 and 97.
During the last test, film studio Fox tested two separate cuts with different audiences – one scored 94 and the other 98, which is the version we’ll be seeing in cinemas come May.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, a source described the environment in the screening ‘as being electric and akin to watching the Super Bowl’.
The score improves on what the original Deadpool received: a pretty healthy in a mutant kind of way 91.
However, it goes to show, these scores can sometimes mean nothing since the film went on to make $783 million worldwide – becoming the highest grossing X-Men related film of all time.
Although we don’t know much about what Deadpool 2 is exactly about apart from some fights and bants, we’re sure it’ll be full of even more blood soaked action, dirtier dirty jokes and really sarcastic wit. No. Really.
We do know Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool will be joined once again by his moody teenage pal, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, in a traditional X-Men suit and of course his landlord, Blind Al.
David Leitch, who was in charge of last year’s disappointing action thriller Atomic Blonde, has stepped up to the director’s chair taking over from Tim Miller, who helmed the first.
