​Deadpool Does Interpretive Dance To New Celine Dion Theme Song – And It Is Brilliant

The new song not only involves Celine Dion... but also interpretive dance

Hype continues to build for Deadpool 2, the sequel to the 2016 superhero flick starring Ryan Reynolds as its titular red and black-clad star.

Reynolds has been doing a good job of dishing out teasers here and there, but the video he's most recently shared might just be the best yet, as it involves Celine Dion... and interpretive dance.

Fans had already spotted that Dion had a track listed on the official Deadpool 2 soundtrack, but when 'Ashes' dropped yesterday it was even more epic than we could have hoped - which is impressive, given her track record.

That's thanks not only to those great big lungs of Dion's, but also a pretty amazing music video featuring Deadpool sashaying across a stage.

The best bit comes towards the end of the video, when Deadpool shouts from the seats of an empty auditorium: "Celine, that was amazing! That was the most beautiful performance I've ever seen in my life."

"Thank you so much," Dion shouts back.

"No, thank YOU," Deadpool replies, before adding: "We need to do it again."

A crestfallen Dion asks why.

"Well, it's too good," Deadpool says. "And this is Deadpool 2, not Titanic."

He then tells her then she's currently at an 11, and that she needs to bring it down to a 'five - five and a half, tops'.

But Celine hits back, saying as she points to herself that 'this thing only goes to 11' - adding, savagely: "So beat it, Spider-Man."


While the film doesn't hit cinemas until May, we already know we should be in for a good ride - if the response from recent test screenings is anything to go by.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the highly anticipated sequel scored 98 in its third and final test screenings, following ratings of 91 and 97 in the initial two screenings.

Apparently the Deadpool 2 crew screened two separate cuts, which scored 98 and 94 respectively, before deciding that the highest-achieving edit would be the 'version that the team is using'.

THR reports that the highest test screening that the original Deadpool film got was 91, so if you were into that, prepare to be blown out of the water with this apparently even better follow-up.

Plus, the first film went on to gross $783 million (£556m) worldwide - and stands as the highest-grossing X-Men movie of all time - so God knows how much money its successor will rake in.
