In the wake of some uncertain reports a few weeks back about apparent ‘disastrous’ test screenings, the makers of the “Deadpool” sequel are fighting back in the best possible way – transparency.
THR reports that despite the rumored report of extensive reshoots, the film actually only did six days worth of reshoots in Vancouver last month with the scenes being additions – not subtractions. There was also reportedly two hours’ worth of work recently in Los Angeles for a secret cameo.
As for the reaction? The most recent test screenings in Dallas pulled in a 98/100 and a 94/100 with the former being the cut the team plans to use. That group of screenings was the third lot to have happened with the first two sets pulling in a 91 and 97 respectively. To put that in comparison, the highest the first “Deadpool” ever tested was a 91.
“Deadpool 2” is slated to open in cinemas on May 18th.
