Now that it is just a few weeks away, Deadpool 2‘s marketing machine is finally revealing some wackier elements reminiscent of the first film’s legendary campaign.
First, Celine Dion released a video for her contribution of the film’s soundtrack, “Ashes.” It features an incredible dance performance by Deadpool and an extended joke about Dion being overqualified for the film’s ambitions.

1. Ashes – Celine Dion2. Welcome To The Party – Diplo, French Montana & Lil Pump (feat. Zhavia Ward)3. Nobody Speak – DJ Shadow feat. Run The Jewels4. In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel5. Take On Me (MTV Unplugged – Summer Solstice) – a-ha6. If I Could Turn Back Time – Cher7. 9 to 5 – Dolly Parton8. All Out Of Love – Air Supply9. We Belong – Pat Benatar10. Tomorrow – Alicia Morton11.
