This Valentine’s Day weekend, you can choose between BDSM and spies. Next year, it’s a wisecracking superhero in a skin tight costume. Deadpool, directed by Tim Miller and based on the ultra popular mutant Marvel character, hits theaters one year from Thursday, February 12, 2016. Ryan Reynolds will play the character, a deadly assassin with superhuman healing abilities and a penchant for breaking the fourth wall. To tease fans on this milestone, Reynolds put up a photo from pre-production on the film and the charcter’s creator, Rob Liefeld, offered up a few teases too. Check out the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool tweet and more below. Read More »

Talk of a Deadpool movie has been around since before the turn of the decade. In 2009, rumors began to circulate that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were going to pen a script for the film. They did, and the character even appeared on screen that year in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But for years after that, very little happened with the movie. Director Tim Miller was hired, we heard rumblings here and there, but it felt dead. It got to a point where Reese and Wernick were openly hinting to people that they should read the script, which had leaked online.
Then, almost out of the blue, the Deadpool movie got a greenlight and a February 12, 2016 release date. What was the change? Was it a tamer rating? A lower budget? Maybe, but star Ryan Reynolds says the main reason is fan reaction to the leaked test footage. Read more about the Deadpool movie below.
Update: There’s now a list of women who are testing for a key role in the film; we’ve got that below along with Reynolds’ comments.

Not unlike Ryan Reynolds‘ character in The Voices, you have a dilemma. You can watch the latest trailer for the dark comedy, which opens February 6, and get spoiled on some of the film’s bigger surprises. Or you can not watch it. But once you know more about the film, the latter option might be difficult to deny.
In The Voices, directed by Marjane Satrapi, Reynolds is a likable factory worker who talks to his animals. His dog and his cat are his own personal version of the angel and devil on his shoulder. As he goes through life interacting with these two animals, his actions become increasingly shocking and disturbing. The Voices co-stars Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterto, Jacki Weaver and we liked it at Sundance. You can read our non-spoiler review there or, if you so choose, you can watch The Voices trailer below.

Actors have been “overpaid” for a long time. For the past few decades the biggest stars were getting 10, 20, 30 million dollars for a movie that maybe wasn’t even that good. Recently, things have begun to go away from that huge upfront sum. No, stars are taking less money upfront for more options on the back end. That encourages a better product, but also creates much bigger pay days. Sandra Bullock made around $75 million for Gravity. Robert Downey Jr. around $100 million for The Avengers. But somehow, you’re okay with that because the movies are good and they took a gamble at the beginning.
Most of these stars did not take a gamble and, in most cases, you can’t blame them. Forbes has complied their list of the ten most overpaid actors of 2014. They look at the “last three films each actor starred in before June 2014,” add the grosses, then divide by the total salary. What’s left is a return on investment number. The amount of money each actor grosses for every $1 paid. None of them lose money, but some make less than others. Read the most overpaid actors 2014 list. Read More »
