Will we ever get to see Ryan Reynolds in a hard-R rated Deadpool movie? It’s a question fans have been asking literally for years. The script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick leaked online some time ago, and everyone involved is so proud of it, they subtly encourage fans to download, read and champion it. Even so, the film is far from a safe bet for 20th Century Fox, which owns the character. So even though a ton of directors have been attached — Tim Miller is the current one — the film seems to remain as far away from production as ever.
Or, maybe not. In a new interview, Reynolds teased fans by saying, in recent weeks, the film has taken some “very, very small tiptoes forward.” What could that mean? Read the quotes and discuss below. Read More »

DreamWorks Animation has already gotten us to believe that pandas can be kung fu masters, dragons can be man’s best friend, and cats can be swashbuckling outlaws. In that light, I guess an snail competing in the Indy 500 isn’t that much of a stretch.
Turbo stars Ryan Reynolds (or his voice, anyway) as an ordinary snail who dreams of going fast. He gets his wish when a freak accident grants him superpowers, and with the support of his pals manages to enter the world-famous race. The new trailer offers a look at some of Turbo’s human supporters, including optimistic Tito (Michael Peña), pragmatic Angelo (Luis Guzmán), and brash Kim-Ly (Ken Jeong, playing a woman). Watch it after the jump.

To say Summit’s Highlander reboot has been as long-lived as its characters would be a massive exaggeration, obviously, but it has been kicking around for quite a while now.

Hit the jump to get the details.

Another day, another set of new posters for comic book adaptations. Tuesday brings brand new looks at both Robert Schwentke‘s R.I.P.D. starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as well as yet another banner for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Michael Shannon.
Both posters expand on previous ones, adding action and scope. In the case of R.I.P.D., that’s accomplished by adding a slew of new elements: vortexes, explosions, and hovering police cars. For Man of Steel, the task is simpler: pull back and fly away. Check out the posters below. Read More »

After foraying into kiddie territory with Mirror, Mirror, Tarsem Singh is headed back to darker material. Singh is looking to team with star Ryan Reynolds on Selfless, a Black List thriller written by Àlex and David Pastor. It features a body-switching premise that sounds kind of crazy, which should make it a good fit for the adventurous Singh. More details after the jump.

Perhaps there’s a minor demographic out there that was desperate to see Jeff Bridges parody his True Grit role in a Men in Black knockoff. That would be one easy way to explain R.I.P.D., in which Bridges plays a dead lawman who, with the help of another dead lawman (Ryan Reynolds) fights evil from the afterlife.
The film, directed by Robert Schwentke (Red), is based on a comic book series, and the vibe of this trailer definitely seems more reminiscent of the Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones films, with some Ghostbusters thrown in for good measure. Oh, and Bridges’ character is seen by humans as a hot woman, just to shoehorn one extra bit of weirdness into the story. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
Robert Schwentke‘s comic book adaptation R.I.P.D. feels like it’s been coming forever. Filming began in the Fall of 2011 and release is scheduled for July 19. Along the way we’ve seen a few set photos, heard rumblings of behind the scenes problems, and wondered when the marketing would kick in. The answer to that last question is “now” as Universal Pictures released the first poster for the film at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The studio will release the trailer this week, attached to its sci-fi film, Oblivion. See the poster and read more about the film below. Read More »
