The biggest surprise hit of the year so far has to be Deadpool. For about a decade the character chilled on the shelf at 20th Century Fox, with fans demanding that the studio give them an R-rated version of the character after he was mistreated so badly in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds kept pushing for the movie to get made along with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and thankfully, this was the year all our dreams came true. Sounds like the kind of movie any actor would want to be part of, right?
But Olivia Munn thought that heading to a different part of Fox’s Marvel universe might suit her better. The Newsroom star sat down for a recent interview while promoting this month’s release of X-Men: Apocalypse, and she had an interesting detail to reveal. Olivia Munn was originally going to play Wade Wilson’s girlfriend Vanessa in Deadpool, but she opted to go kick some as as Psylocke in the X-Men sequel instead. Find out the motivation behind the Olivia Munn Psylocke casting decision after the jump. Read More »

Late last year, we highlighted some of today’s popular, contemporary movies that had been given a makeover as if they were released on VHS tapes, appearing just as they would on the shelf of a Blockbuster video store. Now another artist has done the same thing, but his designs are a bit more impressive since they involve actually transferring the movies in question to VHS.
Off Track Outlet has designed some impressive modern movie VHS covers for films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadpool, Jurassic World, Big Hero 6 and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Check them out below! Read More »

San Diego Comic-Con International’s Hall H is the stuff of geek legend. Every summer, nearly 7,000 fans pack this convention center hall for the promise of seeing their favorite filmmakers, actors and creators showing a sneak preview of some of the biggest and most anticipated films. For example, James Cameron showed up at the Hall in 2009 to give fans an unprecedented first look at Avatar.
But as technology has gotten smaller and harder to detect, piracy has become a huge problem for movie studios exhibiting at Comic-Con. You see, most of the footage they show at the event is super early and unfinished, not meant for the masses around the world — certainly not meant for blogs like ours to do frame-by-frame breakdowns of (note: we never publish pirated footage). And now 20th Century Fox is apparently not coming to Comic-Con 2016 because “the studio feels it cannot prevent the piracy of custom trailers and exclusive footage.” Hit the jump and I’ll explain why Fox skipping Comic-Con is not the right way of handling this issue.
