On a gloomy Friday evening, there was no better idea than to go check out a movie. I’ve been dying to see Logan when it came out and some friends have told me that it was amazing. After eating an early dinner at a sub shop, it was time to head to the theaters to go see Logan. Even though the film opened a few weeks ago, the theater packed up just mere minutes before the film started.
Logan ended up being an amazing film! The movie centers around James ‘Logan’ Howlett (Wolverine) and Professor Charles Xavier as they escort 11-year-old Laura to a destination in North Dakota called ‘Eden’. Along the road, the trio encounter slew of enemies that are looking to kidnap Laura. It was one adventurous road trip to North Dakota where we got to learn about Laura’s past.
While the film itself was excellent, there was something even more interesting that happened before it started. After the trailers were finished, there was a new teaser being shown. It took me a few minutes to realize that it was the teaser for Deadpool 2. How ironic that they saved the best teaser for last right before Logan was about to be screened! Ryan Reynolds will be returning as Deadpool once again.
The teaser itself was hilarious. Wade Wilson is walking down an alleyway when he noticed someone getting robbed at gunpoint. He dashes into the phonebooth to change into Deadpool. It took him a minute or two as he struggled to get his gear on. After fumbling with his costume, Deadpool notices that the guy was already dead before he got there. In typical Deadpool fashion, he just laid his head onto his chest while sipping coffee. The screen pans out from the scene to reveal that Deadpool will be coming back.
Other than being a hilarious trailer, it was an interesting publicity stunt that Marvel pulled off. Marvel’s films are connected in some form or another and it holds true through their teasers (FYI, a poster of Logan can be seen on the brick wall!). Deadpool and Logan are both titles from the same Marvel universe, so it made sense that Deadpool appeared before the film started. There will be a lot more Marvel film releasing in the future, so this was great to captivate the audience about their newest title.
Seeing that teaser before Logan was amazing! I’ve yet to see Deadpool and I’m excited to see that Ryan Reynolds will be reprising his role for the sequel. Viewing trailers are my favorite part of going to the movies and the Deadpool 2 trailer worked well before the film. Hopefully we will get more information soon on the Deadpool sequel.
