Test footage 'leaked' and then seems to have been officially released in some way ...





http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/28/59448 ... from-movie

Quote:
Alleged test footage shows how amazing a 'Deadpool' movie would be

There's been talk of Hollywood making a movie out of the comic series Deadpool for a while now, and a couple years ago there was actually some forward progress. An animated clip of test footage was put together to show what the film would look like, and it appears that that footage has now leaked online (though most copies of it have since been removed). The quality may not be great, but the good news is that the eccentric antihero appears to transfer from page to screen quite well, keeping his sharp dialog and tendency to break the fourth wall intact. He also performs quite well in some smartly choreographed fight sequences.

The animation is believed to have been made in 2012 by VFX artist Tim Miller, who worked on Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim movie and was on board to direct Deadpool, according to JoBlo. Ryan Reynolds was reported to be attached to star as Deadpool himself, and it certainly sounds like him in the clip. Adding to its authenticity, The Wrap points out that the footage looks almost exactly like how one of Deadpool's creators, Rob Liefeld, described it during a panel last year.

Update: the Deadpool video has been removed following a copyright notice from Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

That looks great. Also, the flip is riffing off this quite famous stunt I think:

I can't see YouTube clips at work so I'll take your word for it. The other to add obviously would be Endhiran; although what I assume to be the entire finale of it is available on YouTube and could be the only bit worth watching.

It's a bit crap though, really.

Why not just call it, "Self indulgent writers who want to be the centre of the plot make all of the other inhabitants of the Marvel Universe into brain dead, weak, imbeciles to make a cheap gag."

Hardly. He got his ass kicked by several people, only for all of them to mysteriously forget he can regenerate his entire body in (apparently) seconds, just so the writers could put themselves into a comic. The other guys may as well have kneeled down and stuck out their necks for him; just boring that they all had to act so out of character.

It's like, say, if Liam Neeson was in Expendables 4, playing his character from Taken, and he was obviously wearing a bulletproof vest, and he told every cast member he would kill them, and started by shooting a few of them in the head, but instead of reacting in character the rest of the crew started blundering into obvious traps and dying very quickly, until Stallone shoots Neeson in the stomach. Despite seeing the vest, Stallone then turns his back and gets shot. Then Statham shoots Neeson in the chest, turns his back and gets shot. Then Schwarzenegger shoots him in the stomach, walks up to where Neeson is stunned and says he is sad that he had to do that, turns his back and gets shot. Neeson has killed everyone! He says, "I'll be back" for no good reason!

Then a writer comes on screen and shouts, "YOU SEE! WE ARE THE IMPORTANT ONES! THE CHARACTERS YOU LOVE ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO US! WE ARE THE WRITERS! WE ARE OMNIPOTENT! WE CAN KILL EVERYONE IF WE WANT TO!" before masturbating into the camera.

Then they make The Expendables 5 with the same cast like nothing happened.

I thought the writers were a bit self indulgent, yes. Much like Stephen King in the dark tower, in fact.

This was an amazing call. Superb. Good work Curio for grabbing it

I'm taking credit for Singham, on the grounds that I discovered it via an animated GIF of the awesome jeep-roll-grab-guy stunt.

Did you see it first? I first saw it on Neogaf around the time of the PS4 launch (with Kaz's face placed over Singham's and one of the Microsoft execs over the goon.)

Perhaps two years ago or more, but also with a different face for Singham (Sam Jackson). Then I saw it again as part of some compilation on YouTube, and someone asked what it was in the comments (and someone answered, obviously).

I'm sure we watched the trailer for the first time together (although perhaps not physically together).

Spiritually, obv.
