The look on Deadpool‘s face may be the same face that fans have or must be making regarding the re-release of this year’s Deadpool 2.

The film is set for a theatrical re-release on December 21, just in time for Christmas with one little difference. The film will be a PG-13 cut of the film! How did this happen? Ask Ryan Reynolds and Simon Kinberg.

Reynolds was the mastermind behind the PG-13 cut, with Kinberg (who produced the film with Reynolds) giving his film support. Kinberg had this to say about the PG-13 vut and how Reynolds pulled it off:

“Ryan Reynolds and his studio [Maximum Effort]—but I will give credit to Ryan Reynolds more than anyone else—is extraordinary at figuring out ways to get around the system. And be clever, both in terms of getting attention when it comes to viral stuff and in terms of deflecting attention when it comes to something like this. In the same way that Beyonce and Kanye can drop an album out of nowhere, Ryan figured out a way to drop a movie out of nowhere.”

It is being rumored via a photo from Reynolds’ Twitter that it will be called The Deadpool Before Christmas and it will feature Fred Savage reprising his role from the 1987 classic The Princess Bride. Yes, you heard that right. What does this photo tell you?


In any case, the PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 will be released on December 21 from Fox.
