Celine Dion fans pumped about her newly released single and music video “Ashes” from the highly anticipated film “Deadpool 2” will want to check out a newly released “making of” promo clip from the video shoot. The behind-the-scenes romp features the five-time Grammy winner along with actor Ryan Reynolds, playing the role of Marvel Comic's superhero Deadpool in the role as narrator.
The “My Heart Will Go On” hitmaker unveiled the clip on May 7 via Facebook and other social media ahead of the launch of her spring residency, which launches May 22 in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “Ashes” is slated to be part of the “Deadpool 2” soundtrack, which will drop on May 18 via Columbia in conjunction with the film's worldwide theatrical release.
In the 1:17 promo clip, Reynold's as the comic anti-hero plays the role of narrator while the Canadian international superstar prepares for the shoot. Reynolds quips that the video stars Celine Dion's “hologram” due to “restraining order.”
“I haven't done any dancing since I left Canada in '98,” says Deadpool in a tongue-in-cheek tip of the Canadian born singer. “And that was between two dumpsters, so I really need to up my game here.”
The “Deadpool 2” soundtrack features 12 songs and is available for pre-order here in CD, digital and streaming formats. Fans can check out the behind-the-scenes promo clip above and the music video for “Ashes” here.
The beloved pop diva's upcoming spring run in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace is scheduled to run through to June 9 and will be followed by a summer world tour, which launches June 26 in Tokyo at Tokyo Dome.
