Coming Soon Trailers: Deadpool 2…Show Dogs, Book Club?!

The merc with a mouth goes up against a group of senior citizens and a live action dog comedy.  I like his odds.

Ho boy!  Talk about counter-programming at its weirdest.  Paramount Pictures took a long look at the May schedule of movies dominated by mega-franchises and decided to put out Book Club.  A week after Mother’s Day.  I’m assuming they get some sort of tax break when this film tanks.  Against this we get another head-scratcher as Will Arnett, Ludacris, and Shaq team up in a live action cop comedy featuring a team of talking dogs and an FBI agent.  When I announced we’d be doing a live “write the worst film script” contest for our next podcast, I didn’t think Hollywood was going to make my job this easy.
