Deadpool – What Did You Think? (Share Your Video Review) It’s kind of a miracle that Deadpool even exists, after its titular character was nearly ruined by X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But this weekend, fans will finally have another chance to check out this Marvel Comics creation in an incarnation that’s much closer to the spirit of the original character. Fox basically cut the budget of this film down to the bone, but despite this, I found the film to be a blast. Did it work for you? Was the plot too thin or just right? Did Deadpool’s schtick wear you out?

Transformers spin-off focusing on Bumblebee set for 2018 We're on the verge of experiencing a flood of TRANSFORMERS films whether we like it or not; last year Paramount and Hasbro put together a TRANSFORMERS writers room in order to chart out the future of the franchise, which would include more sequels, spin-offs, and everything in between. Just this morning Paramount announced release dates for three TRANSFORMERS films which will keep up supplied... Read More...

'The Boss' Red Band Trailer: Melissa McCarthy's Diss Game Is Strong If you weren’t quite sure what to make of The Boss after that green band trailer debuted, then maybe this new red band trailer will give you a better of idea of what Melissa McCarthy & Co. are up to in her latest comedy. Like the underwhelming Tammy before it, The Boss was also written by McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, and while that has us feeling a bit skeptical, there’s something that feels more lively about this film — or maybe it’s just all that profanity.

'Fifty Shades Darker' Casts 'The Knick's Eric Johnson to Give Mr. Grey Some Competition So far, all the new casting additions for Fifty Shades Darker have been women, making it seem as though the sequel does nothing to disprove the idea that this is a crazy-pants world in which everything and everyone revolves around Christian Grey. If you were getting tired of looking at that guy, good news: not only has the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel added a new male cast member, but he’s going to be competing for our attention (and Ana’s too, sure). Continue reading…

Here's what the critics are saying about 'Zoolander No. 2' Apparently the Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Want to Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too could use a new class on how to make long-awaited sequels.

Hannibal Buress joins Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in Baywatch Although I am aware of the Baywatch television series and the various tropes it spawned, I've never actually seen so much as a single episode of it. Despite this, there's something about Dwayne Johnson's upcoming feature-film reboot of the show which is keeping my interest; perhaps its Johnson himself, or the surprisingly funny Zac Efron, or it could even be Alexandra Daddario...

Berlin Review: John Michael McDonagh's 'War On Everyone' With Michael Pena & Alexander Skarsgard Lesbians. The Burmese. Maybe farmers. With all the minorities, interest groups, nationalities sexualities, and ethnicities that John Michael McDonagh finds time to craft a specially designed slur for, or chuck a throwaway insult at, in his shambolic, shaggy, occasionally very funny "War on Everyone," it becomes a fun game to work out if there's anyone who definitely will not be offended. I don't think Tibetans get a mention, and I'm pretty sure meteorologists and albinos emerge unscathed.

Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has acquired worldwide rights to Nicolas Pesce’s nightmarish debut “The Eyes of My Mother,” the company announced Friday. The film, which stars newcomer Kika Magalhaes, fuses classic horror ingredients with gothic black-and-white imagery.

Disney’s animated features are so wrapped up in either princesses or talking animals (sometimes both) that one can be forgiven for approaching “Zootopia” — a whole metropolis of anthropomorphized critters! — with a certain wariness. Thankfully the creators of this expansive adventure, a crime-solving saga starring a bunny who wants to be a cop, have a bit more in mind than the usual strains of aww-dorable humor and frenetic action. There’s plenty of that, for sure.

This weekend, HBO is getting very rock 'n roll, with the two-hour, Martin Scorsese-directed season premiere of "Vinyl." The show takes viewers into the gritty realm of the 1970s music industry, following a record label honcho who makes his way through the sex and drug-riddled world, searching for the next big sound. The cast for this one is impressive, featuring Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Juno Temple, James Jagger, and many more.

At this point, it’s safe to say “The Simpsons” has changed television forever. The animated series — which, in case you’ve forgotten, premiered way back in 1989, and is now in its 27th season — has seen its fair share of ups and downs, and become a sort of hotbed of critical debate, with some quick to write off every season after thirteen, and others clinging to the endless nostalgia of Homer and company. Granted, certain seasons have wound up unanimously reviled, while certain episodes have becomes staples of the genre.

Oscars producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin have revealed a third slate of presenters for the 88th Oscars telecast. The Oscars, hosted by Chris Rock, will air live on Sunday, Feb. 28, on ABC.

The Many Faces Of Ryan Reynolds

Twitch - Fri, 2016-02-12 07:00

The Many Faces Of Ryan Reynolds Normally I use the quiz for an actor I really really like, so that would exclude Ryan Reynolds. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the guy or anything, he just was never something I particularly looked forward to in films.

"Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2" is officially filming. Which means it's time for behind-the-scenes social media photos!http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/harpy

In case you needed another reason to see the reboot, here it is.

With the election cycle in full swing, you'll also have plenty of small screen entertainment to keep the politically charged energy brewing. Netflix drops the new season of "House Of Cards" next month, and later this spring, HBO has a couple of their own projects up their sleeve. First, on April 16th, will be "Confirmation," a dramatization of Anita Hall's battle against Clarence Thomas during his Supreme Court hearings.

Writer-director Tobias Lindholm knows how to keep a human perspective in his storytelling, no matter how outsized the drama or the dilemmas facing his characters. His 2012 film “A Hijacking” hit U.S.

Just before they set off on CBS’ $1 million race around the world, TheWrap asked the 11 social media star teams of the next “Amazing Race” to size each other up and decide who has the most Likes. Also Read: 11 'Amazing Race' Teams Ranked by Social Media Presence (Photos) They include Tyler Oakley, who is on President Obama’s White House invite list, “Magic Viner” Zack King, who boasts more followers than the CBS show, and many more with a gift for making online friends — and “Amazing Race” enemies. The video was recorded in November 2015,

Last summer we learned that Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) was interested in directing Bad Boys 3, which Sony has scheduled for a 2017 release. He was never officially confirmed for the job, but these new pre-visualization images he shared on Twitter are all the confirmation you need that Carnahan is behind the wheel on the long-developing sequel.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Horus is outnumbered in first Gods of Egypt clip The first clip from Alex Proyas' GODS OF EGYPT has been released, and if you weren't sold on the film based on the trailers, well, I highly doubt it will change your mind. The clip sees Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Horus, God of the Sky, confronting Chadwick Boseman's Thoth, God of Knowledge, and has some very cringe-worthy acting and dialogue. Maybe the rest of the movie won't be... Read More...

George Clooney‘s “Suburbicon” is heading to Paramount, according to multiple media reports. The star is directing the dramedy, which is written by Joel and Ethan Coen, who also wrote and directed Clooney’s most recent film, “Hail, Caesar!” It is set in the quiet family town of “Suburbicon,” where the best and worst of humanity is hilariously reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people.

Make-a-Wish Australia gave 9-year-old Domenic Pace the day of a lifetime by making him 'Iron Boy', with Robert Downey Jr. making him an honorary Avenger.

It looks like the end-credits scene in Ant-Man, where Falcon and Captain America find Bucky is not the start of Captain America: Civil War. As evidenced by Cap's clothing, that scene looks to pick up in the middle of Civil War, which would indicate that parts of Ant-Man and Civil War are occurring simultaneously.

Nearly a year ago, we found out that Sony was going to take The Smurfs in an all-new direction on the big screen. Instead of continuing the live-action animation hybrid franchise, they opted to have Sony Pictures Animation develop an all-new animated film that would essentially reboot the blue creatures on film. Now the film has a title and more voices to add to its roster. The movie is called Smurfs: The Lost Village, and it will follow Smurfette (Demi Lovato) on a journey to find out what her purpose in life is, and why she’s the only girl in the village.

IFC Midnight Whether or not you’re a fan of Eli Roth‘s 2002 feature, Cabin Fever, there are elements that make it one of the early 21st century’s more memorable horror films. As a debut it marked Roth as an energetic film maker to watch, the practical makeup/gore effectively played up the always-disturbing body-horror angle, and it put a fresh spin on the cabin-in-the-woods scenario by avoiding both slasher killers and the supernatural. It also introduced us, without reason or explanation, to the “pancakes!” kid.

Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron play two sisters who go to war over the throne in a new TV spot for 'The Huntsman: Winter's War'.
