deadpool movie
My friends over at Tourism Vancouver, the official destination marketing organization for Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada provided me with some information about a great DEADPOOL themed vacation giveaway they are sponsoring. DEADPOOL 2 hits theaters on May 18, 2018 and while you are waiting for the chance to go see it take a moment to toss your hat into the ring for a chance to win a fun getaway. Here are the details:

Deadpool brings “Pool season back to the Great White North”¹ with two times the splash, as Vancouver’s beautiful backdrops and dynamic downtown districts reprise their Academy Award-neglected “Best Supporting Location” role in the upcoming film Deadpool 2.

¹Fun fact: Vancouver is home to one of the world’s longest pools (137 meters).

As the unsung hero of Canada’s Scarred Superhero’s Silver Screen Sequel (try saying that three times fast), Vancouver’s historic, hip and happening ambiance provides all the thrills of “real” Hollywood, only with four times the politeness and 1/16th the pollution.²

²Fun fact: Vancouver is the third most livable city in the world.

To celebrate the anti-hero’s return to the big screen, Tourism Vancouver – with support from 20th Century Fox and the Vancouver Film Commission – is launching a campaign that welcomes fans to explore the world of Deadpool 2 by visiting the city that’s featured so prominently in the film. The “Vancouver: Home of Deadpool’s Alter-ego, Ryan Reynolds” campaign sweepstakes offers the public a chance to win a grand prize trip for two to Vancouver inspired by Deadpool 2.

Deadpool Giveaway

The prize includes:³

• Round-trip flights to Vancouver, B.C.
• Three nights’ accommodation at JW Marriott Parq Vancouver – a sleek new hotel that’s almost as sexy as Deadpool himself
• Exotic driving excursion with Scenic Rush (because what’s Deadpool without sexy cars?) • Two Ultimate Passes to Science World at TELUS World of Science (includes admission and OMNIMAX film), where you can expand your mind while soaking in views of the Georgia Viaduct where the aforementioned car chase went down
• Fans of Vancouver walking tour that passes key sites seen in Deadpool and other hot films and TV shows shot in Vancouver
• A decadent culinary tour in Railtown, courtesy of Off the Eaten Track (but don’t tell Deadpool – with his sense of taste gone, he might be murderously jealous)
• Theatrical walking tour in Gastown and Chinatown – where the bulk of the Deadpool movies were filmed – led by Forbidden Vancouver
• Dinner for two at trendy The Union in Chinatown
• Dinner for two at ultra-elegant Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar in central downtown

³Restrictions apply – Contest open to residents of U.S. (excluding Florida) and Canada (excluding Quebec). See Rules & Regulations for full details.

“We are extremely excited about this campaign, particularly as it follows on the heels of our successful initiatives for War for the Planet of the Apes and Fifty Shades Freed,” Stephen Pearce, Vice President of Marketing, Tourism Vancouver relayed to A Geek Daddy. “As we share with potential visitors worldwide the extent of incredible productions that are filmed or digitally finished in Vancouver, we are thankful for the continued support of key partners like 20th Century Fox and the Vancouver Film Commission. Film tourism is becoming more prolific every year, and our goal is to ensure visitors recognize that Vancouver is the stunning destination they see on so many big and small screen productions.”
