Deadpool may not be hitting theaters until Friday, but a new report indicates that development on a sequel has already begun. THR has the scoop, confirming that 20th Century Fox has greenlit a follow-up to the R-rated action comedy, which stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular hero.
Last week, the 2016 SXSW Film Festival revealed their lineup of feature films for this year’s event. Today, the lineup has been updated to include films in the Midnighters category, along with a selection of Festival Favorites and the various short film programs for this year’s event.
After producing X-Men: First Class and helming X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer has one more adventure up his sleeve with this summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, starring Oscar Isaac as the world’s oldest and most powerful mutant. As with most of this year’s major releases, the film was featured prominently during the Super Bowl.
Disney’s The Jungle Book was given a brief TV spot during the Super Bowl – complete with a “fake 3D” effect that got plenty of groans from the folks I was viewing the game with – but a new full-length trailer was released online shortly after, featuring plenty of new footage. And of course, we’ve got it right here.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may not have been a great movie, but it did enough things right to garner some goodwill from fans – albeit begrudgingly. More importantly, as far as Paramount is concerned, the film made quite a bit of money at the box office, and a sequel is headed our way later this year.
After getting our first look at Matt Damon’s return to the role of Jason Bourne all the way back in September, we’ve heard almost nothing about the fifth installment of the Bourne franchise, which reunites Damon and director Paul Greengrass. But the Super Bowl almost always plays host to a few trailer debuts, and during the big game we got the first official look at Jason Bourne.
A month ago, we didn’t even know that 10 Cloverfield Lane existed – let alone that it would be hitting theaters in March. But after a stellar debut trailer that came out of nowhere, the marketing team at Paramount is ramping up their efforts with a second clip that aired during the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl hasn’t even officially begun, but one of the most anticipated trailers has already popped up online, so if you’ve been looking forward to the next footage from Captain America: Civil War, then the wait is over.
It’s been just over 18 months since a two-minute clip of test footage for a Deadpool film leaked onto the internet. After a bastardized version of the character appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, fans spent the next five years clamoring for 20th Century Fox to correct their mistake, and their frenzied response to the leaked footage was enough for the studio to finally pull the trigger on Deadpool, which concludes its long, hard road to the big screen next weekend.
I’m not one for romance. I don’t seek out love stories, and I think Hollywood has done a great job running the entire genre into the ground. From the BDSM relationship between Christian Grey and Elena Lincoln, all the way to the mythical, magical weirdness that is Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, there’s always an element of fantasy that doesn’t really feel like love does in real life.
