Deadpool 2 Teaser – First Footage and Bob Ross-Style Painting Lesson
Written by Live605 on November 15, 2017
Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds takes a turn into the surreal in a teaser trailer for “Deadpool 2,” offering mostly tips on how to paint — intercut with a few brief action scenes.
Deadpool imitates Bob Ross, the late artist from PBS’ instructional show “The Joy of Painting” who provided extensive detail about what he was painting, in a video titled “Wet on Wet.” At one point, Deadpool explains that he’s painting trees, then adds, “What you don’t want to do is eat these — trust me on this.”
About halfway through, however, several characters appear briefly in a violence-laden montage from the actual movie — Josh Brolin’s Cable, Negasonic Teenage Warhead (played by Brianna Hildebrand), and Blind Al (Leslie Uggams). Then the trailer returns to the painting instructional with Reynolds concluding, “Hugs not drugs.”
“Deadpool” gave Fox its biggest hit of 2016 after earning $783.1 million worldwide, supplanting “The Matrix Reloaded” to become the highest-grossing R-rated film in history. “Deadpool 2” hits theaters on June 1, 2018.
