Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool opens on Friday. Reviews so far have been pretty good. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago – click here for a refresher – I’m not sure he’s worked as hard at promotion as he has on this press tour. Full Story

How well do you know your partner? How well do you think you would—or could—know them, if given forty-five years together? Andrew Haigh’s 45 Years is a film about marriage but concerned with knowing, and it is a devastating, slow-motion vivisection of a marriage shaken by knowledge. Full Story

Sunday’s Super Bowl Trailer Apocalypse also included a new TV spot for X-Men: Apocalypse, the superhero movie I can never seem to remember is coming out this summer. I’m sure this movie will be fine and that it will make a bunch of money, but doesn’t it feel like an afterthought coming on the heels of Superhero Face Punch and Captain America: Civil War? Every time it comes up I have an “Oh yeah, that exists” reaction, and it’s my job to keep track of this stuff. Full Story

The Super Bowl Trailer Apocalypse continues with the first look at Matt Damon’s return as Jason Bourne, in a movie creatively titled Jason Bourne. That is a seriously sh*t title, but I suppose after making an off-brand Bourne movie without Jason, they need to remind everyone that THIS is the kind of Bourne movie you remember and love. Full Story

New Captain Ameri—He shot Tony Stark IN THE FACE!

I’m just assuming Lainey is Team Iron Man because Tony Stark is her favorite Avenger, so she’s probably not going to be Team Winter Soldier at all because the new Captain America: Civil War Super Bowl TV spot shows Bucky Barnes firing a gun point-blank in Tony Stark’s face. Tony’s new gauntlet-watch is cool—and that sure does look like the “Bleeding Edge” armor that is biologically connected to Tony—but what makes this whole spot is the look on his face when Barnes pulls the trigger. Full Story

Anyway, Cuba was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last night and was asked about Tom Cruise, with whom he worked in A Few Good Men and Jerry Maguire. Full Story

The second maritime disaster movie in as many months, following December’s In the Heart of the Sea, The Finest Hours, like that other movie, did not have a terribly impressive opening weekend. That’s consistent with Sea, suggesting that people don’t really have an appetite for boat movies right now, though the people who did see Hours gave it an A- CinemaScore, meaning that pretty much everyone liked it. Full Story

A trailer was just released for a movie starring Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick called Get A Job. It’s about a couple of college grads struggling to get by in a dicey job market and with a crushing burden of student loan debt, but with a rom-com spin. There’s a lot in this trailer I recognize. Full Story
