Happy Australia Day, love Deadpool

It’s Australia Day next Tuesday, marking the anniversary of the First Fleet arriving on our shores, raising a flag and claiming the land in the name of Great Britain. That all happened in 1788. Now, nearly 230 years later, we have pop culture characters wishing us a happy day.

…do you need anything more than that?

DEADPOOL (all in capital letters like that) tells the story of Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary turned subject of rogue science experiment. He’s been given accelerated healing powers, developed a “dark, twisted sense of humour”, and is out to hunt down the man who tried to destroy his life.

DEADPOOL, starring Ryan Reynolds, hits Australian cinemas February 11. We have some leaked footage from the film, and a bit of a warning for potential cosplayers.
