The day I ran into Deadpool

All I had with me was my Nexus 6, but as someone once said ‘the best camera is the one you have with you’.

I always noticed crowds of people and photographers gathering around the back entrance to AOL, but never did I think I would actually run into a celeb.  Reynolds was very gracious with his time, signing autographs and posing for pics with as many people as possible.  Even after his handlers were trying to reign him in, he insisted on just one more pic.

In case you didn’t know, Deadpool hits theaters today and early buzz says that it’s a pretty good movie.  Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure and the red band one at that.
