Fans of Deadpool and his movie series no doubt love the character in part because of just how crude and foul-mouthed he can be. So when it was announced that a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 was being released in theaters, even some of the character's biggest fans weren't immediately sold on the idea, since it seemed like it would simply be a toned down version of the original sequel.

But when promos for the reedited film, titled Once Upon a Deadpool, arrived, people's opinions began changing.

The Once Upon a Deadpool trailers promised a new version of the film that would see it set up in the style of The Princess Bride, with Ryan Reynolds's character telling a grown-up Fred Savage about his escapades.

While the trailers made it clear that Once Upon a Deadpool would offer a whole new way to see the sequel, nothing we saw quite prepared audiences for the film's post-credits scenes.

(Spoilers Ahead)

According to GamesRadar, instead of simply censoring the epic post-credits scenes from Deadpool 2, the new film has all new footage, beginning with Deadpool and Fred Savage talking about how awesome post-credits scenes are. The original (albeit edited for a PG-13 audience) Deadpool 2 post-credits scenes then play, and then things take a turn toward the emotional.

The final scene is a tribute to the late Marvel mogul Stan Lee. We get to see Lee’s outtakes from his Deadpool 2 teaser cameo, which then lead into an interview where Lee is asked what he wants to be remembered for. His answer? As someone who "wrote some really good stories."

Pottery Barn Is Launching a Friends-Inspired Furniture Line That Includes Rachel’s Iconic Apothecary Table

To celebrate this fall’s 25th anniversary of the premiere of Friends in 1994, Pottery Barn is releasing a line of furniture inspired by the beloved NBC sitcom, Deadline reports.

The collection will feature accessories, furniture, and tabletop items, including Central Perk mugs. One highlight is a replica of the apothecary table that made a name for apothecary tables everywhere with its spotlight-stealing performance in the season 6 episode “The One with the Apothecary Table.” In it, Rachel purchases an apothecary table from Pottery Barn and, when she finds out Phoebe hates Pottery Barn, tells her the table is an antique from the “days of yore.” It gets more complicated (and hilarious) from there.

According to BuzzFeed, the episode was actually part of a product placement deal with Pottery Barn, and Entertainment Weekly even ranked it first on their “Best Product Placement” list for Friends.

You can shop the collection beginning on July 30, with prices starting at $12.50. If you’re a diehard Friends fanatic looking to celebrate its 25th anniversary in a way that Rachel Green would be proud of, you can also enter Pottery Barn’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a free trip for two to Los Angeles, complete with a $1000 shopping spree to Pottery Barn and a Warner Bros. Studio Deluxe Tour which includes, of course, a visit to the Central Perk set.

And, if you haven’t seen “The One with the Apothecary Table,” you can watch it on Netflix before Friends leaves for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max in 2020.
