Deadpool 2 Set Photo

It looks production is underway on Deadpool 2, at least if Ryan Reynolds‘ recent post on Twitter is to be believed.

Over the weekend, the actor who spent roughly a decade trying to get the R-rated comic book comedy off the ground posted a new photo of himself donning the signature red suit worn by the Merc with a Mouth, but it’s the location where this photo was taken that should be exciting for fans of both Deadpool and the X-Men.

Check out the Deadpool 2 set photo below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Dodgeball Chartiy Campaign

It’s a little hard to believe that it’s been 13 years since Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story hit theaters. The goofy comedy had Vince Vaughn attempting to raise $50,000 to pay the mortgage for his gym, all while a blowhard gym owner played by Ben Stiller is trying to take it over in order to turn it into another link in the corporate Globo-Gym chain.

Now some of the cast, including Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, are reuniting for a charity dodgeball tournament through the popular fundraising platform Omaze. For those who donate, they’ll have a chance at playing in the dodgeball tournament, and they get to choose which team they’ll be playing for, Average Joe’s or Globo-Gym. We’ll let the Dodgeball cast explain the finer details in the amusing Dodgeball charity campaign video after the jump. Read More »

X-Men Dark Phoenix

Longtime X-Men movie series writer/producer Simon Kinberg has been eyed as a potential director of the upcoming sequel X-Men: Dark Phoenix since February, but now it’s official: 20th Century Fox has hired him to helm the follow-up to X-Men: Apocalypse. Not only that, but Kinberg managed to pull off a casting coup: stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor Xavier), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) are all coming back to reprise their superhero roles. And if that weren’t enough, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain is also in talks to sign on in a key role.

Ferdinand Trailer

John Cena is quite an imposing guy with a bulky body that would intimidate anyone. So it makes sense for 20th Century Fox to have him voice a big bull named Ferdinand. What’s surprising is that bull is decidedly different from Cena’s wrestling alter ego.

Ferdinand tells the story of a kind-hearted bull raised by a Mexican family who has a heart of gold, loves watching TV, walks carefully through a china ship, and doesn’t want to hurt a thing. That doesn’t bode well for the bull when he’s ripped from his home and forced into a bullfighting ring, refusing to charge at the red cape being swung around by the matador.

Watch the Ferdinand trailer below. Read More »

Trailers Before Trailers Green Band
If you’re the kind of person who seeks out movie trailers when they debut online instead of passively watching them when you happen to be at a theater, you’ve likely noticed a trend that’s become increasingly prevalent over the past year or two: three-to-five second mini-trailers, featuring snippets of what you’re about to see in the full trailer, are being tacked on to the beginning of full-length trailers on sites like YouTube and Facebook. Call these things what you like – trailers before trailers, pre-trailers, or the industry-preferred term “bumpers” – but they have been annoying me and many of my colleagues for a while now, and since absolutely nothing else of any importance is going on in our country at the moment, I figured this was worth exploring further.

I first noticed this trend about a year ago and quietly hoped the practice would stop, but since I’ve only seen it grow in popularity over the past few months, I decided to reach out to some key players at the studios and some of the world’s top trailer editing companies to learn more about these bumpers, find out why they came about in the first place, and see how they might evolve in the future.

steven spielberg ranked bridge of spies

Sometimes director Steven Spielberg can toil away for years trying to find the perfect combination of elements to tell a story, and other times he’s able to fast-track the entire process from idea to finished product in less than a year. He’s doing the latter with a new film called The Papers (formerly known as The Post): he signed on in March and the movie comes out this December. It tells the true story of the controversial publication of classified documents known as the Pentagon Papers in the early 1970s.

Spielberg had already managed to snag Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep to star, but now he’s assembled a spectacular supporting cast to join his heavy hitters, including actors from Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Arrested DevelopmentFargo, and more. Ain’t no party like a Spielberg party. Read who else has come on board the filmmaker’s Pentagon Papers movie below.
