Deadpool 2 Script

Last night, our friends at Collider landed a big scoop about The Grey and A-Team director Joe Carnahan being brought in to write the developing X-Force movie at 20th Century Fox. The mutant team includes Deadpool at the heart of the crew, and he’s frequently accompanied by characters like Cable and Domino, who are supposed to be part of Deadpool 2. So it should come as no surprise that they have the inside track on the development of the Merc with a Mouth’s anticipated sequel.

The studio has been pretty quiet about the development of Deadpool 2, aside from confirming John Wick co-director David Leitch as the replacement behind the camera for the departed Tim Miller, and that appears to be because co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are still hard at work on the script. In fact, they’ll be getting some help from another writer with comic book adaptation experience to finish the Deadpool 2 script. Read More »

legion episode 4 trailer

This week’s episode of Legion ended with a bit of a cliffhanger: Dan Stevens’ David Haller found himself in a bit of a psychic pickle while his new allies barely escaped from his subconscious mind after being assaulted by his literal inner demons. It was wild and creepy and inventive, everything we’ve come to expect from this series so far. And if the trailer for next week’s episode, titled “Chapter 4,” is any indication, things are about to really start heating up.

Logan Credits Scene

Earlier this week, sources indicated that the cut of Logan all the critics saw over the weekend didn’t have a post-credits scene. However, a couple days after that, there was a change in the film’s runtime. 20th Century Fox updated the length of Logan so that it was about three minutes longer than the cut that screened for critics. Then came confirmation that the extension of the runtime was due to a post-credits scene being included, or so we thought.

The same source that previously confirmed the existence of a Logan credits scene has since rescinded that story. But in the same breath, they indicate that while those extra few minutes won’t be spent on a credits scene, fans will still get some kind of treat before the movie starts.

Star Wars Original Cuts

Every now and then there’s a new rumor that the original, unaltered, non-Special Edition cuts of the Star Wars trilogy are on the verge of being re-released to the public. Sometimes the rumor says the original trilogy will be re-released in theaters, other times they say the movies will be available in high-definition on Blu-ray for the first time officially. Now a new rumor has emerged regarding the release of the Star Wars original cuts, but this one is somewhat more credible.

‘Legion’ Spoiler Review: Thoughts on ”Chapter 3”

legion episode 3 review

Legion announced itself as a new kind of superhero show with its pilot episode and the third episode continues to run with that torch. Here is an hour of comic book-inspired television that feels like it was mined from the bizarre, niche corners of the X-Men universe, sidestepping every obvious choice to really dig into the addictive weirdness of fringe superhero stories. Here is an hour of television that spends the bulk of its running time literally exploring the mind of its lead character, with the cast wandering through one psychic horror show after another. After “Chapter 2” paused to catch its breath, “Chapter 3” plunges us straight into the abyss once again.

So let’s talk about it.

assassins creed movie

Yesterday, Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts gave us an extensive Metal Gear Solid movie update. Today, I want to share another part of that conversation: I asked Jordan why most video game movies suck. It’s a question that this video game fanatic and film director has thought long and hard about, and he has some thoughts on the matter.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

alien covenant prologue

If you were watching Legion this evening (and you really should be watching Legion!), you were offered a brief preview of looks like an extended clip from Alien: Covenant. The full scene has arrived online and it introduces us to the crew of the colony ship Covenant, which is venturing deep into space on a mission to establish human outposts on other planets. But it’s not actually a scene from the movie – it’s a short film called Prologue: Last Supper and it’s directed by Luke Scott, the son of director Ridley Scott.

While it probably doesn’t feature any footage from the actual movie, the short does offer something the final film probably will not: this group of people actually having a good time, with no running or screaming or eviscerations. Let’s see what we can gleam from it.
