AMC reveals Deadpool & Wolverine popcorn bucket

AMC Theatres was first to unveil a Deadpool & Wolverine-themed popcorn bucket. "Don't try to butter me up. #deadpoolandwolverine ❤️💛," star Hugh Jackman shared on X (formerly Twitter). earlier today. Of course, the bucket is just as crude as the Marvel movie, with the bucket formed in the shape of Wolverine's head with its mouth open awaiting popcorn. It also has the phrase, "Designed by Deadpool" written on it.

These popcorn buckets come on the heels of AMC Theatres' souvenir sandworm bucket for Dune: Part Two. They caused a huge stir online and inspired a hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch. AMC Chief Content Officer Elizabeth Frank recently responded to the Dune: Part Two buckets.

"We continue to learn and evolve. We would have never imagined the Dune thing. We would have never created it knowing it would be celebrated or mocked," Frank told Variety. "Absolutely," she added when asked if the SNL sketch felt like a "seal of approval." "And you couldn't make it happen if you wanted to. It wouldn't be fair to pull our creative talent aside to say, 'We hope it makes SNL.'"

"Some fans are collectors. There's another group of people who are specific film fans, buying three different Ghostbusters products. It's all a mix. It's a material part of our food and beverage business, but it's not the majority of it. It also makes the movies more fun. It's like going home from a concert with a T-shirt. There is a lot of creative energy from it," she added.
