deadpool movie filming

Mark it on your calendar, Deadpool fans. March 19, 2015 is the day we saw the first images from the set of a Deadpool movie. Stars Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin both tweeted out images of their set chairs with a makeshift, paint-splattered logo marking the start of production.

It’s been a long road for the film, which was first announced in 2009 and sat in development hell until the test footage shot for the then head of 20th Century Fox leaked online. Fox then saw the fan desire for the film and put it on the fast track.

Deadpool will be released February 12, 2016 and below you can see the Deadpool movie filming images. Read More »

hard-core Deadpool fans

Ryan Reynolds has seen first-hand the backlash against the poor on-screen handling of a fan-favorite character. Reynolds played a version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine that was not much at all like the core version of Deadpool, and fans were quick to blast the film’s character revisions. For the new Deadpool film, which begins shooting soon with Reynolds again playing the character, the actor says hard-core Deadpool fans should be able to embrace the new vision of the merc with a mouth.

Deadpool movie footage

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.

The Voices trailer Ryan Reynolds Anna Kendrick

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.
