Award shows are finding new and inventive ways to interact with their fans beyond the behind the scenes look or photobooth shots. Social media has the door for nominees to talk to their fans. Often times viewers are asked to include a hashtags to help increase the show’s social media presence and hopefully viewership.
Last year, the Golden Globes did it by having nominees use an Instagram station. Ellen DeGeneres did with her Academy Awards selfie, which actually crashed Twitter for a brief moment.

The moment that the Deadpool test footage leaked, it instantly went viral. Comic book fans passed it to their friends, their friends past it to their friends, so on and so forth. We haven’t seen much of the character since he appeared unmasked in X-Men: Origins: Wolverine, but we knew that Ryan Reynolds was perfect for the role – at least better suited than he was for the Green Lantern. Having said that, it would be difficult for Fox to invest in a comic book film adaptation where the titular character is constantly mouthing off and has an appetite for violence and chimichangas.
Having said that, those who saw it wanted more than test footage, they wanted an actual movie. Fans have been clamoring for it, even after the test footage was taken down, Blur Studios released a high resolution version of it because of the hugely positive response it was getting on the Internet.
Now Deadpool scribe Rhett Reese wants everyone who wants to see a Deadpool movie to “break the Internet,” by helping him with a Twitter campaign. Hit the jump to see how you can do it. [Read more...]
