Deadpool’ IMAX Teaser Proves That Bigger is Better

Once again, IMAX continues to show mainstream movie posters how it’s done.

In just a few short days too, 12 Days of Deadpool will be coming to an end, with less than two months left until the film’s official theatrical release. After years and years of waiting, and fans’ asking for a movie that did the beloved comic book character right too, the film has some pretty high expectations to live up to. Judging by those trailers released a few months ago though, it looks like we’re going to be getting exactly the movie we’ve wanted.

Now, in keeping with the pretty steady stream of promotional marketing over the past few days, a new IMAX teaser and poster for the film have been revealed, where the title character (played by Ryan Reynolds) explains to audiences just how much better of an experience IMAX offers really the only effective way he knows how…. with chimichangas.

Check it out below (via Joblo):


Here’s the film’s official synopsis as well:

“Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.”

Oh man I love this poster. The poster evokes a Drew Struzan style with a bit of a rougher execution than the famed poster artist is known for, but dammit if I don’t love it all the same. The teaser itself fits in well with the rest of the film’s promotion and trailers that have been released so far as well, with that same fourth-wall breaking and ironic humor that Deadpool is known for.

At this point, we know that the film will feature some of the character’s biggest trademarks, and interactions with perhaps one of his most famous partners in the comics with Colossus, and it really does look like Fox has let the film’s writers and director go completely off the rails with this one. Speaking as one of the character’s many fans too, I couldn’t be any happier. Now, I’m just going to sit here and hope that we see Deadpool riding a unicorn at some point as well because if that happened, my faith in the comic book genre may be completely restored.

Deadpool is set to hit theatres on February 12th, 2016.
