We seem to be receiving almost daily updates about the upcoming Deadpool movie now — in addition to our first look at Ryan Reynolds in costume as the Merc With a Mouth, Fox also dropped the film’s official logo over the weekend. Today in Deadpool news: Reynolds addresses whether or not the film will be rated R, while a newcomer has joined the cast as Negasonic Teenage Warhead (for those unfamiliar: yes, that is her name).
Following the critical and commercial success of Cinderella, Disney is having a field day developing live-action versions of their beloved animated classics. In addition to Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book, Tim Burton’s Dumbo and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast, the studio is already planning on giving another one of its beloved properties the live-action treatment, and it’s one you might be pretty excited about: Mulan.
Since X-Men: Days of Future Past hit the reset button on the entire X-Men movie universe, all of the new movies are going to have the opportunity to do whatever the heck they want. This gives director Bryan Singer and the other creative minds behind X-Men: Apocalypse the unique opportunity to recast characters who were botched the first time around and give them a second chance on the big screen. And few characters deserve a second chance as much as Warren “Angel” Worthington, who has been confirmed as part of Apocalypse’s superhero ensemble.

We presume you know all about Ultron by now. He's big and shiny and angry. But, what of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? In the trailers and posters we see them fighting alongside both Ultron and The Avengers. Are they good? Bad? Who are these guys?
Marvel's shared universe model has become the envy of Hollywood producers and the scourge of talent agencies, with their secretive development proving frustrating and fascinating in equal measure. Case in point: Anthony Mackie (AKA, Sam Wilson, the Falcon) now claims that he didn’t even know he was in Avengers: Age of Ultron until he saw his name on the poster.
After careful consideration, and much consultation with my family and our spiritual advisor, I have decided to cancel my upcoming trip to Jurassic World. Sure, it looks great, and I’ve heard the breakfast buffet is a terrific value. But I just have this weird feeling that if I went there I would be eaten by a dinosaur. Don’t ask me why; just a hunch.
Did you know in The Big Lebowski, the word “dude” is spoken 160 times, The Dude himself says “man” 147 times, he drinks nine White Russians and the F-word is said 292 times. Dude, that's f---ing incredible, man. Don't get caught out of your element with more Big Lebowski facts in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
There are a lot of heroes in the Fast & Furious movies, but the unsung hero of the Fast & Furious movies is screenwriter Chris Morgan, who joined the franchise at its lowest point and helped transform a dying property about a couple of street racers into one of the most popular series (with one of the most cleverly complex mythologies) in all of Hollywood. It was Morgan’s idea to take the series international for The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and to bring back the original franchise stars, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, which happened in the fourth film, 2009’s Fast & Furious. Six years later, Furious 7 is primed to open in theaters, and even after the tragic passing of Walker in 2013, the series now shows no signs of slowing down. Diesel’s so confident in the movie that he’s already predicted it will win the Best Picture Oscar at next year’s Academy Awards (Morgan’s reaction when I asked if he wanted to double down on Diesel’s bet: “Uh ... [laughs] no comment.”)
