PG-13 Movie Overdubs, What the FLUB?
It’s just been announced.. that an untitled “Deadpool” movie is coming to
movie theaters December 21st. That’s the exciting news.
But before you get…too excited, it isn’t REALLY a new Deadpool movie…
Its just gonna be Deadpool 2.. but cut down to a pg-13 rating..
But don’t most movies wait for TV to do that?
Bruce Willis had some overdub gems in Die Hard 2 for TV:
And there was some gloriously bad lip-reading in heavy movies like Scarface
and Snakes on a Plane.
And isn’t the whole point of Deadpool to be – so ridiculously over the top –
w/’ the swearing and the gore? so why?
I mean, besides softening the character up for the possibility of appearances
in other marvel movies in the future.. and making another continent of money
with a pg release that can finally be shown in stricter markets like China?
And make an extra buck domestically when u can take your 10 year old to
See Deadpool 2-=pg-13.
Oh.. ok.. that’s why.
CAN YOU THINK OF AN EXAMPLE WHERE THE CLEAN OVERDUBS
ARE are even better than the originals ?
Here’s a good collection of some of my favorites.
(NSFW – ORIGINAL vs OVERDUB = EXTREME LANGUAGE- duh..)
** UPDATE: Ryan Reynolds tweeted a picture of himself and FRED SAVAGE
referencing “The Princess Bride”. And It WOULD be pretty awesome if they use this
as a framing device in which to tell the filtered story to potentially younger inclusive audiences…
