FILM 1782: DEADPOOL 2



FILM 1782: DEADPOOL 2

TRIVIA: The sequel was announced 3 days before the release of Deadpool (2016).

Ryan Reynolds personally offered Rob Delaney the role of Peter after seeing him in Catastrophe (2015).

In one scene, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) refers to Cable (Josh Brolin) as One Eyed Willy; 'bring it on, One Eyed Willy'. One Eyed Willy was the pirate character in The Goonies (1985) starring Josh Brolin.

It was announced in October 2016 that Tim Miller would not be returning as director for this sequel. He decided not to return due to creative differences with lead actor Ryan Reynolds during pre-production. Miller later stated that he left the sequel because he "didn't want to make some stylized movie that was 3 times the budget", and wished to create the same kind of film that made the first one a success.

Brad Pitt met with the director to discuss the part of Cable, but couldn't commit due to scheduling conflicts.

In the trailer, Deadpool remarks about the effects on Cable's arm not being done, saying it's "not as difficult as removing a mustache." This is a reference to how Justice League(2017) had to remove Henry Cavill's moustache for re-shoots.

FILM 1781: HAPPY DEATH DAY



FILM 1781: HAPPY DEATH DAY 

TRIVIA: The Bayfield University Baby killer costume was designed by Tony Gardner, who also designed the Ghostface mask, the horror icon of the Scream franchise and which is a reworked version of the Father's Death Halloween costume.

The theatrical trailer utilizes the song "In Da Club" by 50 Cent as Tree's birthday ringtone. However, the final film does not feature this as the crew and studio could not acquire the rights. As a result, an original ringtone composition was concocted.
