Deadpool had a crazy weekend at the box office, destroying every record for February no matter which way you slice it—opening day, single day, Thursday preview, R-rated debut, the four-day President’s Day weekend frame. For the three-day weekend it’s pulled an estimated $135 million, with $150-160 million for the four-day holiday—I think the actuals will be higher, based on a strong Sunday. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool

The mistake in talking about Deadpool is to think that it is in any way subversive of the superhero genre—it isn’t. A long-gestating passion project for producer and star Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool is thoroughly a superhero movie, and a pretty conventional origin tale. Further, it overindulges in the snarky, glib-bordering-on-smug tone honed in the Marvel Studios-produced Avenger movies, so even though it is not part of that universe but is in fact part of Fox’s X-Men universe, Deadpool leans heavily on expectations created by the other Marvel superhero movies. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

HBO released a batch of new photos for the upcoming season of Game Of Thrones yesterday. I’ve attached a few below and to see more click here. Why does the Khaleesi look so hesitant and unsure of herself in all of these shots? This worries me.  Read Full Intro

Lily James in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Well, I will give this credit to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the second adaptation of a Seth Grahame-Smith concept novel—it is not nearly as bad as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. That movie is a f*cking disaster. PPZ is just stupid and boring. It’s neither a good zombie movie nor Jane Austen adaptation, which is weird because the book IS good at being both of those things. Full Story

We’re six weeks away from Superhero Face Punch finally hitting theaters, after what feels like a five-year build up, which means now is when the marketing kicks into high gear. We’ve been fed a steady diet of this movie, but now we’ve arrived at the buffet, and the final trailer has just been released. Full Story

Charlize Theron has kept a very low profile for months. You’ll recall, last year she broke up with Sean Penn, supposedly cutting him off abruptly. Then it was confirmed that she’d adopted daughter August. For the last few weeks she’s been in Europe shooting The Coldest City. She plays a spy who’s hunting down double agents. Full Story

Idris Elba did not attend the Golden Globes this year. Two years ago, however, he was there with Naiyana Garth and she was pregnant with their son. Idris took his daughter Isan to the SAGs a couple of weeks ago. And I guess that tipped off the UK tabloids because now the Sun is reporting that he and Naiyana broke up. Full Story
