Is there a documented record for the most celebrity cameos in a single film? If there was, Zoolander 2 just broke it. The film opens with the murder of Justin Bieber and closes with ... well, without spoiling it, let’s say it closes with a whole slew of more cameos, and there’s at least 20 more in between. These are some of the biggest names from the world of fashion, music, TV, film, journalism, and pop culture. If Zoolander 2 was a party, the guest list alone would make it the greatest ever thrown. But Zoolander 2 is not a party. It is a movie. A bad movie. Never have so many cool people appeared in something so patently lame — or, as idiot male model Derek Zoolander mispronounces it, “luh-may.”

In the comic books, Deadpool is known for being pansexual, in that he’s attracted to all gender identities, or attracted to people regardless of gender. In Deadpool the movie, Wade Wilson is in a monogamous relationship with a woman, Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin. But, if star Ryan Reynolds gets his way, Deadpool 2 would explore the character’s sexuality even further, making the Merc With a Mouth the first major movie superhero to be in a relationship with another man. Yes, Reynolds wants Deadpool to have a boyfriend.

Rumors have persisted for years that Lionsgate wasn’t quite done with the Saw franchise — even though the last sequel was titled Saw 3D: The Final Chapter. But titles are meaningless as long as there’s money to be made, and with that pesky Paranormal Activity franchise out of the way (for now), it looks like Lionsgate is reviving the franchise that introduced us to James Wan, Jigsaw and a multi-film timeline so convoluted it would give Quentin Tarantino the spins.

Fact: Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the best films of 2015, if not of all time. Fact: Charlize Theron is an amazing actress who’s pretty great at playing not-so-nice characters and stone cold badasses. Fact: Fury Road proved that she could be even more badass when you put her behind the wheel, leading us to daydream about seeing Theron in a Fast and Furious movie. So here’s an even better fact: Fast 8 might be making those dreams come true.

In news that should shock pretty much no one given the current state of superhero studio films, a Deadpool sequel is already in the works, with Fox reportedly giving the Merc With a Mouth’s follow-up the green light before his first solo outing even hits theaters. Box office tracking for the R-rated superhero film indicates that it’s going to perform pretty well, and early word-of-mouth from promotional screenings has been fairly positive (though the film is far more divisive among critics).
