Fox Celebrated “Deadpool’s” Success the Wade Wilson Way with Chimichangas & a Mariachi Band

by  in Movie News Comment

It’s good to be “Deadpool.” The film has become the biggest opening weekend in February box office history as well as the highest-grossing film in the X-Men franchise, among other accolades. So how, exactly, does one celebrate the ever-popular Merc with a Mouth?

With chimichangas and a mariachi band wearing Deadpool masks, of course.

“Deadpool’s” Reynolds, Miller Poised to Cash In On X-Film’s Box Office Success

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos hosted a party at the commissary to celebrate the film on February 16. Director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were in attendance, though Ryan Reynolds couldn’t make it; the star did stop by a marketing meeting the next day in order to thank the crew and snapped a photo of the event.

The event included a performance from the aforementioned mariachi band, chimichangas (Deadpool’s favorite food) and blow-job shots (a mixture of Baileys, Kahlua and amaretto topped with whipped cream), a beverage featured in the film.


How’s this for meta? The women and men of Fox Marketing. Their work on #Deadpool changed the game.
