'Once Upon a Deadpool' trailer has a charity tie

And now, behold: we have a trailer previewing the results.

The official trailer for a recut "Deadpool 2" (see below) aimed at kids for Christmastime dropped on Monday. Filtered, as the movie promises, "through the prism of childlike innocence".

The trailer begins with snowflakes falling on across the screen, while a narrator introduces us to the concept: "this Christmas, a good guy in red/is coming to theatres with his new sidekick Fred". The biggest difference is an apparent storytelling wrapper starring none other than Fred Savage-who has been tied down by Deadpool and trapped in a Princess Bride-style bedroom.

The new cut will see Reynolds' Deadpool telling the story of Deadpool 2 to a kidnapped Fred Savage, which was reportedly an idea conceived by Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. "And nobody does childlike innocence like you, Fred". And it even has me thinking that a genuinely amusing Deadpool film is actually possible with a PG-13 rating...boy am I curious.

Theresa May: Leadership challenge will hamper Brexit negotiations
Publication of the draft agreement led to the resignation of members of May's Cabinet, including Brexit secretary Dominic Raab . Environment Secretary Michael Gove, another so-called "Brexiteer", did not resign Friday despite speculation he might do so.

Deadpool also sat next to an elderly couple in a chair outside their house as he reached over to the woman, who was holding a bunch of balloons, saying: 'I loved your work in Up, ' referencing the Pixar animation film.

"While my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab".

That's a reference to Reynolds' first condition of doing the movie.

"The lion's share of Once Upon Deadpool is footage from Deadpool 2 that has been edited to meet PG-13 thresholds of violence and language". For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer (renamed for the PG-13 release).
