Deadpool 2 Final Trailer

Final “Deadpool 2” Red Band Trailer Introduces the X-Force

The onslaught has begun for Deadpool 2. We only got a legitimate trailer just a few weeks ago, but now Fox has debuted another one to coincide with advance tickets going on sale. Ryan Reynolds offers just a one-sentence plot summary, so he can get straight to introducing the new members of his team to take on Cable (Josh Brolin).

We'd previously met Domino (Atlanta's Zazie Beetz) in past promotions, and know Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) from the first film. But to save Russell (Hunt for the Wilderpeople's Julian Dennison), he's going to need some help. While that unfortunately involves Weasel (disgraced comedian T.J. Miller), he's adding some impressive mutants and assassins to his roster. Shatterstar (Daniel Lin) is handy with blades, and Bedlam (Terry Crews) knows how to deliver a beating. They'll be essential to the team.

But then there's Peter (Rob Delaney). Peter just needs a job. He's already the most talked about part of this trailer, and has a very normal Twitter account. The reshoots that recently took place were reportedly to add even more of the X-Force, and now we get to see them in action.

Deadpool 2 opens Friday, May 18. Advance tickets are now on sale.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
