FREE PASSES to 'ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL' screening on Dec. 11th in Atlanta!

20th Century Fox, Nerd Fun: Atlanta and Markster Con invite you to a special advance screening of ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL on Tuesday, Dec. 11th @ 7:30pm at Regal Atlantic Station.

Audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth's reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence. "Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006," Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. "I've said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said 'Yes' on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining..."

Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage's starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Fred remarked, "while my participation in this film was anything but voluntary, I am happy to learn that Fudge Cancer will be the beneficiary of this shameless cash grab." For every ticket sold, $1 will go to the charity Fudge Cancer - previously known as Fuck Cancer, who have graciously changed their name to be more PG-13 friendly for the 12 days of ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL’s release.

* BONUS * All those who attend the screening will also get a 50% OFF voucher for either the UNICORN PUB CRAWL (June 1st) or SUPERHERO PUB CRAWL (March 9th) coming to Atlanta in 2019 (available to those 21+)

NOTE: As with all advanced screenings, RSVPs do NOT guarantee seats at the screening. The theater is over-booked to ensure capacity and seating is filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests are encouraged to arrive early. You and your guest must enter the auditorium together.
