DEADPOOL THE MUSICAL
WINNER: GOLD AWARD; MUSIC VIDEO
Director: Julian Higgins
Screening 9/30/2017 @ 1:30 p.m.
Who knew the “Merc with a Mouth” could sing?! Well, he can - in this lovingly, fan-created musical mashup of “Deadpool” and “Beauty & the Beast”. Featuring a NSFW parody of the classic song “Gaston”, as only Deadpool can deliver!
Our hapless hero, Deadpool, enters a bar looking for a little trouble (what else?) - and then the musical mayhem begins. From the beautiful baroque intro of the bartender, Deadpool fights off a bevy of mercenaries all hoping to kill our hero and win the dead pool. Luckily, Black Widow, Rogue, and Psylocke happen to be in the bar, but less than willing to help our mutated mouthy hero.
Thank goodness Spider-Man literally drops in to lend a hand before the final battle involving everyone in the bar. All set to a for-mature-audiences only version of Beauty & The Beast’s “Gaston”!
And like any super hero piece, be sure to stay past the credits for a little something "X-tra."
