After a successful panel at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, we now have a full-length trailer for the upcoming comic-action movie Deadpool, which unlike many of the comic films these days, will be rated R. The film stars Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern, Self/less) in the title role of Wade Wilson/Deadpool, a former Special Forces operative who undergoes an unconventional experiment that provides him with accelerated tissue regeneration (like a Frankenstein version of Wolverine) and vows to seek out those who nearly took his life. Director Tim Miller (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Mass Effect 2) helmed the project from a script by writing-team Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland, The Joe Schmo Show). Starring alongside Reynolds are actors T.J. Miller (Big Hero 6, Silicon Valley), Gina Carano (Haywire, Fast & Furious 6), Brianna Hildebrand (Prism, First Girl I Loved), Morena Baccarin (Homeland, Spy), and Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones, The Transporter Refueled). The movie is expected to open in theaters in February 2016. Check out the new trailer at the link below, which aired on Conan this week, and stay tuned for more forthcoming news!
