The actor who plays an R-rated superhero comes to the rescue of Brewvies Cinema Pub in Utah

Ryan Reynolds is not into party poopers.

Case in point: The actor has voiced his disapproval of a recent threat by Utah lawmakers to take away the liquor license of a local theater.

The Brewvies Cinema Pub in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been cited for breaking the state’s obscenity law by serving alcohol during a screening of “Deadpool.” The establishment is also facing up to $25,000 in fines.

Lawmakers are arguing that the theater broke the law because alcohol was served in the presence of nudity, simulated sex, and included a suggestive scene during the credits that involved a cartoon unicorn. (The law is usually enforced on strip clubs and requires dancers to wear G-strings and pasties if liquor is being served. But it also involves films with nudity and sex.)

Always willing to support his fans, Reynolds tweeted his disapproval on Sunday:

The star also donated $5,000 to the theater to help pay its legal fees, as confirmed by the Associated Press.

Brewvies has a May court date to battle the ruling. Their defense: To argue that “Deadpool” isn’t obscene, and that Utah is restricting free speech, which is unconstitutional.

The theater has been in hot water before, paying a $1,627 fine after showing “The Hangover Part II.” It was also threatened with action after showing “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

“Deadpool” is the highest grossing film of the year in North America so far.

These films changed Hollywood’s notions about blockbusters, before “Deadpool” made studios reconsider R-rated blockbusters

The Ryan Reynolds-fronted “Deadpool” had the biggest opening weekend for an R-rated film ever, and may open the door for more hit R-rated superhero films (though our Jeff Sneider is a little skeptical). This isn’t the first time a single film has made Hollywood reconsider everything it thinks it knows.

Hit or flop, Hollywood studios will certainly try. Cinematic history is filled with trendsetting films that changed execs’ standards for a potentially profitable project. Let’s take a look back at some of those landmark movies through the decades that have affected those that have come after them.
