Early tracking estimates Deadpool could make upwards of $70 million this weekend; Forbes says it could be “the first R-rated comic book superhero blockbuster.” It’s already certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes (though not by this critic). Excitement is high for Deadpool, and people are getting a huge kick out of the character’s snarky, self mocking attitude. A big facet of Deadpool’s comic persona, one lifted directly from his comics, is that he is fully aware that he is a fictional character inside a movie; even as he’s slicing and shooting bad guys he references the fact that he’s trapped in a film (and sometimes a pretty shoddy looking one) that’s part of a wider universe of movies (he even refers to some of the famous actors who’ve played X-Men over the years).

Everyone watching the Super Bowl last night may spend a lot of time getting excited about upcoming movies based on the trailers that ran during the big game. Their designed to wow and impress in just 30 seconds, getting people ready for appointment viewing in the theater. But for every big success, there are a lot of let downs. Not every trailer you saw last night is going to result in a great movie (we’re looking at you Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows). We know this because we looked back at the history of Super Bowl movie trailers and noticed that some very generous studios were willing to spend a lot of money on some really crappy movies.

But more importantly THERE WERE MOVIE TRAILERS. Lots of them. While we covered them individually last night, we’re going to go through each one this morning and, in the spirit of the Super Bowl, see who was the best.

Remembering Alan Rickman in 6 Classic Roles

This morning’s big Oscar nominations announcement had to contend with an even more major and affecting piece of breaking news. A few days after David Bowie passed into the next dimension, cancer has taken another sixty-nine-year-old Brit from us: esteemed actor Alan Rickman. Flip to the word “arch” in the newest editions of the Oxford Goes To Hollywood dictionary, and there you’ll find a photo of Rickman, single eyebrow raised, his tone of dour bemusement audible even from the printed page. The man gained the most international recognition from a choice role in a certain franchise about a boy wizard, but he was an actor of boundless versatility who gifted audiences plenty of fond moviegoing memories.
