Deadpool 2 which was released this year now has its Blu-Ray release set for August 21 and Digital release on August 7. Fox released a new trailer for the movie’s Blu-Ray launch recently.
Directed by David Leitch, written by original writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, as well as Reynolds, Deadpool 2 was a bigger movie than Deadpool and was a key in including him in the X-Men. Also, the movie sets a base for building the franchisee with characters like Josh Brolin’s Cable and Zazie Beetz’s Domino. The sequel in expected to set off a new spinoff of X-Force which is rumoured to start filming later this year with no official release date.
While Fox has released a new trailer on their official YouTube channel, but the fans going to SDCC will get the chance to see the extended version of the movie.
The kind of marketing Fox Studios put in at the time of release of the movie, compared to that the marketing for the Blu-Ray seems to be plain, flat and simple. While there is still time, maybe they will come up with something in due time. At the time of release even the smallest details were tweaked with to get fans attention. The official summary is the best example, the official summary for Deadpool read –
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
The official summary didn’t even have a single thing about the actual plot but references to The Andy Griffith Show, Back to the Future. Also, Deadpool’s lost taste is more important than the movie’s plot as well.
Dealpool will be available on digital starting August 7 and on Blu-ray two weeks later on August 21.
