Ryan Reynolds recently said the long gestating Deadpool movie took some “very small tiptoes forward.” Now, the film’s director has both elaborated on that and given fans another vote of confidence we’ll see the Merc With a Mouth sooner rather than later.
Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool and visual effects specialist who worked on multiple X-Men movies, said screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland, G.I. Joe Retaliation) have turned in a brand new draft of the meta-superhero script and pretty much everything is ready to go. They’re just waiting on Fox to give the film a greenlight.

Ridley Scott‘s last two movies, Prometheus and The Counselor, haven’t exactly supported his legendary status. The good news is, once you reach that status, it never goes away. So the director behind some of the best sci-fi and action films of all time continues to look ahead. His next movie will be the Biblical epic Exodus and, after that… we don’t know what he’ll make. Two definite options are the rumored sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner. The director recently confirmed both films are still being written. Or maybe one of them is written. It’s hard to tell. Read his update about those, and the long in-development The Forever War, below. Read More »

There was a lot to absorb in that first trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Original trilogy X-Men were bumping up against First Class X-Men, new characters were showing up left and right, and the emotional arc was cresting just as action and mayhem broke out in both timelines.
Fortunately, director Bryan Singer is happy to guide fans through that jam-packed promo. “It really is what we wanted from the first look at the movie,” he said. Hit the jump for his commentary on some key moments.

If X-Men: Days of Future Past wasn’t a simple summer comic book movie, people would probably be talking about it having one of the greatest casts ever assembled. Multiple Oscar-winners, Tony-winners, Emmy-winners, from top to bottom, Bryan Singer‘s cast for the fifth X-Men film, out May 23, is simply insane.
Many of those stars - Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage and so many others – are featured in the first batch of stills from the film. The trailer hits on Tuesday but, until then, you have this tease and these images. Check them out below. Read More »

What can’t Hollywood turn into a movie? There are projects based on the usual source materials, of course — books, comics, true-life tales, TV shows, and other movies. Then there are films based on action figures, board games, theme park rides, pregnancy guides and, if certain people get their way, reference books and chain restaurants. Now 20th Century Fox is making one out of a wedding website.
The studio has just picked up the rights to three sites from the XO Group: The Knot, The Bump, and The Nest. The online resources will be turned into films about betrothed couples, expectant couples, and parents, respectively. Because apparently, just making original movies about betrothed couples, expectant couples, and parents is too risky. More details after the jump.
