How much Ryan Reynolds can we possibly take? It’s going to be two more weeks until the “Deadpool” promos have finally run their course, but that’s not the only place you’ll find the actor. If you’re watching The Big Game this weekend (note to those cinephiles who do not sully their waking lives with tawdry athletics: we refer here to the Super Bowl), he’ll be there in force in a new ad for Hyundai.
Appropriately titled “Ryanville,” the ad finds a whole town filled with various Ryan Reynoldses, while two women driving around in a 2017 Elantra swoon at every variation they see. I’m not sure what exactly makes the case here that the car is a good one to buy, but I’m not a marketing executive. And Super Bowl ads aren’t supposed to make sense anyway.
Meanwhile, “Deadpool” has dropped a new promo promoting breast cancer awareness, after bringing to light testicular cancer last month. And fans are getting excited about the possibility of a director’s cut after the film’s co-star T.J. Miller recently said at an advance screening London: “the idea that when you see the full director’s cut of it, that that’s going to be even more raw, that’s pretty heavy duty.”
“Deadpool” opens on February 12th.
