Deadpool 2 is being re-released as a PG-13 version starring Fred Savage
Every Monday, the q screen panel convenes to look at big stories happening in the film and television worlds. This week, CBC's Amanda Parris and arts writer John Semley join Tom Power to discuss why Deadpool 2 is being re-released as a PG-13 version for the holiday season, called Once Upon a Deadpool. The Deadpool franchise prides itself on the violence and profanity it uses, which raises the question: if you take away the foundation the film is built on, what impact will that have on the franchise?
Watch the trailer for Once Upon a Deadpool, which features Fred Savage (unwillingly) reprising his role from The Princess Bride.
