DEADPOOL 2 Takes Over 7-Eleven Stores Nationwide Starting May 7th!

DEADPOOL 2 Takes Over 7-Eleven Stores Nationwide Starting May 7th!

To celebrate the new movie, DEADPOOL 2, in theaters May 18, everyone’s favorite Merc with a mouth, has made his mark (literally) at 7-Eleven® stores nationwide.   7-Eleven has launched exclusive Deadpool themed products, sweepstakes promotions, and its first ever augmented reality (AR) in-store experience that literally brings Deadpool into the store, exciting fans with new surprise activities each week. All AR activities can be accessed through the 7-Eleven mobile app.

In 2016, the original Deadpool movie from 20th Century Fox broke multiple box office records, including the biggest opening weekend ever for an R-rated movie. Ryan Reynolds is back as the smack-talking Marvel anti-hero in the much-anticipated second coming.

Coast to coast, inside and out, participating locations are blanketed with messages, doodles, and thoughtful musings from everyone’s favorite hero.

“We are bringing an unprecedented level of excitement to 7-Eleven this summer. Our customers love Deadpool, and our collaboration includes exclusive products and an amazing in-store augmented reality experience that is among the first of its kind at any retailer,” said Sean Thompson, 7-Eleven senior vice president and chief customer officer.

“Deadpool fans can come to our stores and find fun collectibles and different augmented reality experiences unlocked each week through our app,” he added. “We hope people will play along with us – virtually and in real life – and share their experiences with friends and family on social media.”

Exclusive Deadpool-branded items from collectible Slurpee® cups and straws to chimichangas, Monster Mutant bottled energy drinks, Mike’s Harder Watermelon Lemonade and Trolli Sour Brite Tiny Hands candy can be found at participating stores.

“To make this even more exciting, 7-Eleven is launching an Augmented Reality (AR) gaming experience, first of its kind in retail, with Deadpool,” said Gurmeet Singh, Chief Digital and Chief Information Officer. “Fans can interact with Deadpool and have fun experiences in the 7-Eleven app, unlocking different experiences each week exclusively in the stores nationwide and in Canada. The fans will also be able to share their interactions with Deadpool inside a 7-Eleven store with family and friends. We think Deadpool fans will love seeing him come to life in our stores.”

By scanning the 7-Eleven app at checkout, customers can earn 7Rewards® loyalty program points and enter a contest for a chance to win prizes such as movie tickets, a trip to Las Vegas and more. But the biggest news is the in-store AR that invites Deadpool fans to engage in fun virtual activities (new ones each week) to earn 7Rewards bonus points.

While Deadpool evokes “maximum effort” to fight the bad guys in the movie, jumping into the Deadpool AR experience at 7-Eleven stores is easy. All it takes is the 7-Eleven app.

Here’s how it works:

  • Tap: Tap the camera icon on the home screen of the 7-Eleven app, and Deadpool appears to guide fans through the experience.
  • Selfie: Take a selfie and watch the mad scribbler take over with his red marker.
  • Seek: Here a zapcode, there a zapcode. Scannable codes throughout the store unlock new activities and 7Rewards bonus points. The fun changes every week so fans are invited to visit often. One never knows where Deadpool will pop up. Literally. Once unlocked, an experience can be accessed later, even after leaving the store.

That’s the augmented reality part of the Deadpool 2 experience. The real-life part can be found in the exclusive items at participating stores.

“Deadpool definitely left an impression at their stores,” said Zachary Eller, executive vice president of Marketing Partnerships at 20th Century Fox. “Great to see that 7-Eleven has truly embraced the ‘creative genius’ that is Deadpool with this program.”

Here is the Deadpool 2 product mashup:

  • Monster makes a comeback at the Slurpee machine with Mutant Red Dawn flavor. This is the first time in a decade that a Monster energy drink flavor will make a splash on the Slurpee machine. Monster Mutant Red Dawn Slurpee drinks – say that five times fast.
  • Cups! Five collectible cups, each with Deadpool striking a different pose along with a colorful comment. A different cup will be released each week and can be used for both Slurpee and Big Gulp® drinks.
  • Suck on this. Nothing completes a Monster Mutant Red Dawn Slurpee in a Deadpool cup than straws with tiny Deadpools climbing up the side.
  • Chimichangas! Deadpool says he loves saying chimichanga in multiple languages. 7-Eleven has delicious chimichangas that people will love in every language – and two sizes for all size appetites. Look for mini chimis in the hot foods case and Deadpool on the package of larger 7-Select Chimichangas in the cold case. Available in two varieties, chicken or steak and black bean, the 7-Select Chimichanga has a special limited time offer – two for $2.50. Regular price is $1.99.
  • Deadpool drinks. Look! He’s in the vault on bottles and cans! Monster Mutant energy drink and Mike’s Harder Watermelon Lemonade also get in on the Deadpool 2 action with limited-time packaging.
  • Tiny hands! Deadpool’s tiny hands scene in the first movie has become a gif sensation. Deadpool fans can make their own gif using Trolli Sour Brite Tiny Hands candy. Or just eat them. They’re delicious. Available exclusively at participating 7-Eleven stores. Suggested retail price is $1.99.

For its marketing campaign, 7-Eleven is meeting Deadpool fans where they are – in movie theaters and online. Cinema advertising is a first for 7-Eleven, and the company will activate on movie screens in 13 markets across the U.S.

“With Deadpool, you learn to expect the unexpected,” Thompson said. “7-Eleven has a few more surprises planned as well, both inside and outside the store, and when you least expect it. Stay tuned. The fun is just beginning.”

7-Eleven encourages fans to share their Deadpool experiences with photos on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #DPx7E. Not a 7Rewards member? Customers can sign up for 7Rewards via the mobile website, 7Rewards.com, by messaging “7Rewards” to the Facebook Chatbot on Messenger, or by using a physical loyalty card. Customers can also pay via Apple Pay or Google Pay making their experience even more convenient.

‘Deadpool 2’ opens nationwide May 18.

I Would Do Anything For Love: A Review of Trent Haaga’s “68 Kill”

I Would Do Anything For Love: A Review of Trent Haaga’s “68 Kill”

We’ve all been there before; “happily” in a relationship with someone that we couldn’t imagine being with in our wildest dreams. The other person seems to be completely out of your league and you’re willing to do anything in the world to please them. You justifiably believe that you’re “in love”, and you get put down every second of every day. You’re this person’s puppy dog. You’ll do anything this person asks and once in a while she, or he, will throw you a bone. Well what happens when that person takes things a little too far and asks you to do the unthinkable? Well, when this concept is in the hands of Trent Haaga, hilarity and excellence ensues.

Trent Haaga is one of my all-time favorite “creative people” in terms of the film world. I say creative people because he’s done it all. He’s written some of the craziest, yet fantastic, films in the genre world, such as Cheap Thrills and Deadgirl. He took a horror icon to another level when he took over the title role in Killjoy 2. And, I’ll never quite forget the first time I saw him in Terror Firmer as the lovable, Jerry. If you can’t tell, I’m a fan. From his horror work to his game work, and even his Lifetime films, I always tend to enjoy Haaga’s creative mind and what he brings to the table. As soon as I found out that he was hopping into the director’s chair a second time, firstly being with his former Troma pal Will Keenan for Chop, I was ecstatic. I can definitely say, I was not disappointed.

The film stars Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds) as Chip, a lovable everyman who just wants to make an honest living and provide a decent life for his gorgeous girlfriend, Liza, played by AnnaLynne McCord. Right off the bat Haaga shows us the dynamic of the relationship. Chip is head over heels in love with this girl who honestly cares very little for anyone but herself. Honestly, I know I’m looking deep into what many may consider a “grindhouse” flick but I related more to Chip than any other character in the past few years. I was in a relationship like this for almost 5 years. I saw myself in Chip and that’s when I knew I was 100% along for the ride.

While Chip does his best to make an honestly living, the majority of the money made to sustain their living situation comes from Liza. She supplements their income with a sugar daddy, who makes the mistake of revealing to her the amount of money he really has. Liza presents Chip with the brilliant idea of taking the cash and running away, together forever. While hesitant at first, Chip agrees to go along with the plan as long as no one gets hurt. What happens next is a whirlwind of blood, death, and laughs!

68 Kill’s strength lies in the fact that it refuses to stay tied down. While many would agree that overall there is a dark comedic tone, there’s also a genuinely fantastic mashup of horror, action, and even a bit of 70’s exploitation thrown in. The movie is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and I attribute that to Haaga’s experience with Troma and beyond. He pulls aspects of almost everything he’s worked on and applies it here. I haven’t had the chance to read the original novel by Bryan Smith, but I can only assume it was done justice by the film. My only criticism with the film is that I wish it had been about 15-20 minutes longer. There is a portion in the middle of the film that takes place at a motel. Without giving too much away, I wish this was explored a little bit further.

Let’s talk cast! Matthew Gray Gubler and AnnaLynne McCord have fantastic chemistry as leading “less than dynamic” duo. Gubler is phenomenal as Chip. He didn’t allow Chip to become pathetic, a task that is easier said than done. McCord is fantastic too as she gave her character just enough of a bitchy edge to make us dislike her without being annoyed. Rounding out the main cast would be the excellent Alisha Boe as Violet. Avoiding spoilers, Violet stumbles upon the couple as they’re breaking in to steal the money. She another dimension to the journey that Chip is on, and that’s what this film is all about, the journey.

Honestly, that’s all I can get into while avoiding spoilers. When the film hits Bluray/DVD I would love to give a more in depth review discussing plot points and such. IFC Midnight is killing it in the independent distribution game. Earlier this year they put out one of my favorite films, The Devil’s Candy and this is right up there with that. This is a serious contender for one of my top 5 films of the year. Trent Haaga continues to impress me with his contributions to the world of “genre film”. From the outside this film looks like another movie trying to cash in on the horror audience’s nostalgic need for “grindhouse films”. On the inside, this is a touching movie about a guy trying to truly find himself in the madness that is happening around him. But don’t get me wrong, the kills are excellent!

68 Kill comes to iTunes, Amazon Video, and all other VOD outlets on 8/4/17. It is also available on cable On Demand (XFINITY; Spectrum or your local carrier) and in select theaters in NYC and L.A.
