Good news for Deadpool fans as it's being reported again that the sequel is really good.
Following what now looks to be a biased and erroneous grouping of tweets claiming Deadpool 2 test screenings turned out poor, now it's known the opposite occurred (imagine that?).
THR reports Deadpool 2 test-screened through the roof.
The report also verifies what I also claimed was happening, that Fox test-screened a version of Deadpool 2 prior to the reshoots, which were still said to have received a high score.
The first Deadpool 2 test screening came in at a 91, with the second receiving a 97.
Fox then test screened Deadpool 2 a third time with two different cuts to audiences in Dallas, which scored a 98 and a 94.
The version of Deadpool 2 that received a 98 is said to be the version the studio and Ryan Reynolds are going with.
For a comparison, the first Deadpool movie received only a 91, so that is a world of difference from the sequel.
I actually wouldn't doubt if Disney was behind the series of tweets (lol) as they probably fear Deadpool 2 and had Marvel Studios move the release date for Avengers: Infinity War further away from Deadpool 2, which is now threatening Disney's Han Solo movie (just as Dwayne Johnson's Jumanji crushed Star Wars: The Last Jedi week-to-week at the box office).
A further tidbit about the Deadpool 2 reshoots is that a secret cameo was recently added (Wolverine?).
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.
