In what is sure to be a treat for Deadpool fans, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 Ryan Reynolds smash is being pushed up two weeks, from June 1 to May 18.
The move puts the action comedy against Sony's Slender Man but, more importantly, has it opening one week before Disney's Solo: A Star Wars Story. It's a strategic play as even second weeks have been exceptionally strong for Star Wars movies. (The Last Jedi earned a big $71.5 million in its second weekend in December.)
