Last week brought the debut of a Deadpool 2 music video that was not what we expected at all. Celine Dion starred in the music video belting out a new single called “Ashes” that will undoubtedly be the breakout song from the Deadpool 2 soundtrack (though the R-rated score might give it a run for its money). And of course, the music video featured the Merc with a Mouth being classier than ever, dancing around Celine Dion beautifully and gracefully.
Now a Deadpool 2 music video featurette takes us behind the scenes of the making of this music video.

But it turns out Dion will have a place on the new soundtrack as well, singing an all-new tune written just for the movie. Read More »
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence.
