Deadpool was the surprise smash of 2016, a foul-mouthed riff on the superhero genre starring Ryan Reynolds as a profane mercenary who’s horribly scarred by some baddies, then hunts them down in a quip-filled quest for bloody satisfaction. It was delightfully sincere in its pursuit of absolute insincerity, and it ended up receiving a best picture (musical or comedy) nomination at the Golden Globes along with a best actor nod for Reynolds. Now a sequel arrives two years later. Along for the ride this time is Josh Brolin as Cable, a time-traveling tough guy (not to be confused with Thanos, the villain Brolin is playing in the summer’s other big superhero spectacle, Avengers: Infinity War, in cinemas now) and Zazie Beetz as beloved Marvel mutant Domino. Keep the kids far, far away from this decidedly adults-only romp.
Released 15 May in the UK and Italy, 18 May in the US, Turkey, India and Sri Lanka, and 31 May in the Czech Republic and Hong Kong.
