‘Deadpool and Wolverine’ Unveils Sexual, ‘Dune’-Inspired Popcorn Bucket

Move over, “Dune,” there’s a new bang-able popcorn bucket in town.

Ryan Reynolds has revealed the new popcorn bucket created for “Deadpool and Wolverine” on social media Thursday — and the video is just as inappropriate as you’d expect from the R-rated superhero.

Inspired by the viral “Dune 2” popcorn bucket, the “Deadpool 3” receptacle is modeled after Wolverine’s head, but it has a comically oversized mouth you can fill with popcorn (or your movie snack of choice). Reynolds unveiled the bucket with a short video set to the epic song “Also Sprach Zarathustra” from “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

In the video, Deadpool slowly caresses the Wolverine popcorn bucket as the camera zooms in on its plastic features. Popcorn then falls from above and fills up the Wolverine mouth; and to top it all off, butter drizzles down his nose. It’s the latest viral marketing stunt for “Deadpool and Wolverine,” which is expected to be one of the biggest movies of the summer, if not the year.

AMC Theatres declined to provide information regarding the price and availability of the “Deadpool” popcorn bucket. The “Dune 2” bucket cost $24.99 and sold out quickly due to their viral popularity. The buckets, designed like the massive sandworms that Timothee Chalamet’s Paul Atreides rides on Arrakis, even got their own “Saturday Night Live” skit. In a recent interview with Variety, AMC CEO Adam Aron wasn’t too impressed with the “SNL” gag.

“It wasn’t their best skit,” Aron said. “It was great they did it. But when I think of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ I’m going back to John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Eddie Murphy. I have very high standards for comedy on ‘SNL.’”

“Deadpool and Wolverine” hits theaters on July 26.
