Over the weekend I emailed Lainey all excited about Maya Rudolph and Martin Short’s new variety show. Does this make me deeply uncool? Yes, but in a week being dominated by Taylor and Kanye’s mutual f-ckery, I’d like to take a break from all-cap tweets and haughty publicists to talk about two really talented people. Full Story

While Canada was celebrating hosting its first ever NBA All-Star Weekend last night, our country’s first couple showed up to Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party together, like, together. Gossip Cop reports that the two are definitely back together. Full Story

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

Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender were out together on Saturday night before the BAFTAs. Here they are leaving the party at 2am. They were also seated together during the BAFTAs proper, as they were both nominated. But they did not walk the carpet together. Michael walked with Kate Winslet, his co-star in Steve Jobs, while Alicia posed alone. 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

Jennifer Lawrence was in New York for Valentine’s Day. She and Aziz Ansari were seen together having dinner in Brooklyn. As you recall, they’ve been hanging out since last year, with Amy Schumer and they were photographed with him on piggyback leaving the SNL after-party when Amy hosted in October. 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
