We seem to have entered a strange era in which audiences are “thanked” by filmmakers for making their movies financially successful. I’m not sure when this trend started, but at least Deadpool 2‘s contribution to the genre is fairly entertaining: Introducing “Deadpool 2 Thanks You.”

“Deadpool 2 Thanks You” for the film’s reported $363 million gross since it opened last weekend, so if you contributed in some small way to that box office figure you can consider this a personalized message just for you, for whatever that may be worth.
