Early tracking for Fox's Deadpool solo film suggested that Tim Miller's profanity and violence-laden superhero outing would bring in around $65 million. That number inflated over the past week, and thanks to a strong preview night on Thursday, February 11, the estimate for the risky action film ballooned to $135 million — and that's precisely how much Deadpool made in its first three days in theaters, shattering a few box office records along the way.
We all remember Batkid, aka Miles Scott, the young boy suffering from cancer who got to fulfill his dream of being Batman for a day thanks to the help of the city of San Francisco and the Make-A-Wish foundation. The charitable organization has helped to make another ailing kid's superhero dreams come true, transforming nine-year-old Iron Man fan Domenic Pace into Iron Boy — and he's even been endorsed by Robert Downey Jr. himself.
Deadpool star T.J. Miller recently said that there’s a more profane, more violent and more “raw” cut of the film, leading many fans to believe that we’d eventually see an unrated, extended version of the movie hit DVD and Blu-ray. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening, as director Tim Miller has revealed that he has no plans for a director’s cut of Deadpool, so you’ll just have to enjoy the one that’s out there.
Tim Miller’s R-rated adaptation of the beloved, foul-mouthed superhero was on track to make $60 million at the box office this weekend, but Deadpool is now expected to top that estimate as it has already begun breaking box office records for February. The Merc With a Mouth’s first solo outing is primed for the biggest R-rated movie opening of all time, as well as the biggest opening for a film released in the month of February.
Deadpool hits theaters on Valentine’s Day weekend, offering some wildly violent and profane counter-programming to your typical romantic offerings, though the people at Fox have been doing their best to promote the love story aspect of the film. Two new promos have arrived online, offering a little something for everyone on this special holiday.
A new Gremlins film has been in development for several years, with a handful of different writers attached at various points. Last we heard, the new installment in the franchise will take a Jurassic World-style approach, essentially operating as a legacyquel that takes place 30 years later and maintains the canon from the previous films while introducing new characters. While we wait for more updates on Gremlins 3, two of the writers who previously developed ideas for the sequel have shared their rejected pitch, which basically sounds like Mogwais on a Plane.
This week CBS announced plans for a MacGyver reboot TV show, featuring a younger version of the character portrayed by Richard Dean Anderson on the classic series. James Wan — who was previously attached to direct a MacGyver film — will direct the pilot, but just in case that doesn’t work out, Lionsgate has announced that they’re (still) developing a MacGyver movie.
Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 15 years. He’s appeared on screen as the iconic X-Men character in seven films, including his uncredited cameo in X-Men: First Class, and by the time The Wolverine 2 rolls around, we can round that number up to eight (and that’s not including the potential for cameos in X-Men: Apocalypse, which he’s denied, as well as Gambit). Fans have been wondering if Wolverine will be recast once Jackman exits the franchise, but according to Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, that’s not likely to happen.
Not that you were particularly worried or anything, but Marvel’s recent test screenings for Captain America: Civil War have yielded the most positive audience reactions since The Winter Soldier. Previously, the second Captain America film had received the highest marks at test screenings, which sounds about right considering that it’s the best MCU film to date. Could Civil War be even better?
If you didn't tune into DC's big Dawn of the Justice League special tonight on The CW, then you missed the official debut of the new trailer for Suicide Squad. Lucky for you, the trailer has arrived online and the Worst Heroes Ever have assembled, joining forces to take down a threat much worse than all their villainous powers combined.
What you see above is a new TV spot for Deadpool, which promises all the violence and mayhem and profanity that should come with a proper adaptation of the beloved comic book character. Unfortunately for fans in China, it’s that content in particular that’s keeping the film from hitting theaters in their country.
As expected, there’s lots of big news coming from Netflix ahead of their panel at TCA ’16, and in addition to finally renewing Marvel’s Jessica Jones for Season 2, the streaming service has set a return date for Orange Is the New Black Season 4. We’re sure to learn more about the coming season once the panel commences, but expect our return to Litchfield to resolve a few of those lingering cliffhangers.
