By this point in the season, we’ve got a rough idea of how the awards race is shaping up. La La Land, Moonlight, and Manchester by the Sea are already looking like Oscar frontrunners despite the fact that the actual Oscar nominations won’t be announced for another few weeks, and films with that kind of momentum tend to rack up a whole bunch of other prizes on the way. So of course all three have been nominated for the Writers Guild Awards, along with some of the other usual suspects like Fences and Arrival.
But every once in a while, the universe likes to throw us for a loop. Today, a big surprise has come bursting in through the fourth wall to curse up a storm. Yup, Deadpool has managed to snag a Best Adapted Screenplay nom at the WGAs, beating out more expected contenders like Silence, Sully, and Hacksaw Ridge. Find the full list of 2017 WGA nominations below. Read More »

Instead of offering a sneak peek of the next Logan trailer (expected sometime in January) by way of a trailer for the trailer, 20th Century Fox is doing something a little different. They’ve decided to set up a website where you can sign up with your personal address, and they’ll send you a postcard of one out of the 1,974 frames that make up the trailer.
For those doing the math, with there being 24 frames per every second of film, the trailer is about 82 seconds long (nearly a minute and a half). Also, fun fact, 1974 just happens to be the year that Wolverine debuted in Marvel Comics, in an issue of The Incredible Hulk.
The prospect of a new Logan trailer is enticing, but what about the possibility of seeing Wolverine and Deadpool in the same movie? The rumor about Ryan Reynolds appearing Logan has been totally debunked by both the actor and Logan director James Mangold, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have a chance of seeing the characters on the big screen again, this time the right way.
Find out more about the Deadpool and Wolverine movie after the jump, as well as how to get your own collectible Logan trailer still postcard. Read More »

Get details on the Logan cameo below, but be warned that the following information may be considered spoiler-y.
UPDATE: Director James Mangold is denying the Logan cameo rumor. See his reaction below. Read More »
