The first time I saw Zoolander I didn’t like it, but it grew on me after multiple viewings, so after I saw Zoolander 2 and did not like it, I actually went back the next day and tried it again. Maybe it just needed to grow on me so I could properly appreciate its absurdity, but no. Zoolander 2 isn’t secretly brilliant like its predecessor, nor does it have the kind of absurd humor it takes time to unpack. Full Story

John Boyega won the BAFTA Rising Star Award last night. And he was dressed for it, looking sharp in a black velvet suit. I love his reaction when he got up to collect his trophy – a wide open-mouthed WHOA! as he was buttoning up his jacket. Understandable, non? He was in Star Wars. He was in the biggest movie of all time. Full Story

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

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 15, 2016 14:40:52 February 15, 2016 14:40:52

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

Tom Cruise was seen in Malta today, scouting locations for The Mummy. The movie is scheduled for release in June 2017. He’s also supposed to go into production for Mission: Impossible 6 this summer, at least that’s what he said last summer. Full Story

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
