Guardians of the Galaxy Song in Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War may have been just dethroned from the top of the box office by Deadpool 2, but fans are still talking about the Marvel Studios sequel. That includes sending questions to director James Gunn, since he was consulted about how the Guardians of the Galaxy were utilized throughout the movie. One question has been thrown his way a number of times, and he wanted to make sure everyone got the answer.

When the Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, they’re flying across space to answer a distress call. While the rest of the movie only uses Alan Silvestri’s score, this particular sequence starts off with the crew listening to “Rubberband Man” by The Spinners from the Zune that Star-Lord was given at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But there were a few other options that could have been used for this sequence.  Read More »

Deadpool 2 Box Office

This past weekend finally brought Deadpool 2 to theaters. The sequel was one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, as the first R-rated comic book comedy stormed into theaters and broke box office records in February of 2016. So how did the follow-up fare at the box office after the first movie made such big waves?

Well, Deadpool 2 was easily able to dethrone Avengers: Infinity War from the top of the box office charts after three weeks of domination. However, when it comes to topping the box office records set for R-rated opening weekends, the movie fell short of the original Deadpool in the United States. But when it comes to the global box office, the news is much better. Read More »

deadpool 2 spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: David Leitch’s surprisingly funny Deadpool 2.)

“This is a family film,” Deadpool tells us early on in Deadpool 2. It is, of course, a joke – a movie loaded with vulgar jokes and ultra-violence can’t really be a “family film.” And yet, there’s an air of truth to this. Because a family indicates growth, and growth is exactly what Deadpool 2 showcases. For all its flaws – like the first film, it’s never quite as funny or subversive as it thinks it is – Deadpool 2 takes the meta world created by the original Deadpool, and builds upon it. It finds new ways to tell an old joke, and for that, it’s (mostly) a success.

Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio

UPDATE: We’ve got word that Spider-Man: Homecoming villain Michael Keaton will be returning as Vulture. We talk about what that could mean in our story below.

Jake Gyllenhaal has come close to entering the superhero genre a couple times in his career. When Tobey Maguire tried to play hardball to negotiate a new contract for Spider-Man 2 and any sequels that might follow, Jake Gyllenhaal was waiting in the wings to take the job. Then the Donnie Darko and Nightcrawler star almost suited up for DC Comics as one of the top choices to play The Dark Knight in Batman Begins. But now it will be a Marvel villain role that brings the actor into the fray.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are working on their sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland. While it would seem that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 leaves the wallcrawler’s future uncertain, the studios are moving forward with casting for the sequel, and they’re currently in talks with Jake Gyllenhaal to play the Spider-Man villain Mysterio.

Deadpool 2 Easter Eggs

The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch breaks down a scene from the comedic comic book sequel. Plus, get a load of hundreds of Easter eggs and comic references you might have missed in the movie. And don’t miss stars Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin recreating The Good, the Bad and the Ugly with James Corden and hurling playground insults at each other across the pond.

First up, director David Letich talks us through this scene from Deadpool 2 where the Merc with a Mouth and the X-Men known as Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead show up to help contain a situation involving a mutant named Russell, trying to call himself Firefist. He provides some insight into the scene in question including some details from behind the scenes.

Next up, Mr. Sunday Movies takes on the herculean task of trying to lock down hundreds of Easter eggs, comic references and cameos from this fourth wall-breaking movie. This includes connections to other X-Men movies, comic book clues and hints, possible links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more.

While on the publicity tour for Deadpool 2, the film’s co-star Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to have some fun with a a parody of the classic western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. However, Corden wasn’t too happy about being labeled as “the ugly” one of the group, no matter how accurate it might be in this specific case.

Finally, over at BBC Radio, Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin took turns throwing out playground insults at each other. Reynold takes digs at Brolin’s age while Brolin tries to knock down how funny Reynolds thinks he is. It’s quite the amusing sparring match, but nothing they say really tops their adversarial relationship in Deadpool 2.
