Paul Verhoeven hasn’t released a new film since 2007's divisive World War II thriller Black Book, but the cult favorite director returns this year with two new films — one is the crowdsourced indie Tricked (opening soon in New York), and the other is the far more intriguing Elle, a French language thriller starring Isabelle Huppert, a cat and a hammer.
If you’re one of the people who went to see an early promo screening of Deadpool, then you already know that the R-rated superhero outing has one post-credits scene. And if you were disappointed by said scene, then maybe this news will inspire you to run out and see the film again when it hits theaters next weekend (unless you didn’t particularly like it the first time around).
Kung Fu Panda 3 once again led the box office this weekend, but like its lower-than-expected opening weekend, it’s not as impressive as anyone was hoping or expecting. DreamWorks Animation’s sequel managed to fend off a trio of newcomers, but each of those films disappointed in their own ways, leading to a shrug-worthy top 10 that feels like Hollywood just accepting that everyone is going to be watching the Super Bowl instead of going to the movies.
Don’t you know that there are starving actors who have never known the joy of winning an Oscar? Actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, who has long suffered (figuratively and literally) for the chance to have what so many take for granted. For the small price of just one pair of gold earrings or maybe an old silver necklace, you can help actors like Leo here finally get the Oscar he deserves. Please, won’t you think of Leo?
Vin Diesel is a one-man PR machine. And though he hardly needs to get us hyped up for one of his movies, the actor can't keep from sharing new photos on social media, once again offering more sneak peeks at xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage, featuring Diesel, a longboard (yeah, sure) and one of his lovely new co-stars.
After The Big Short took home the top prize at the Producers Guild Awards and Spotlight won the highest honor at the SAG Awards, the Oscar race seemed to be narrowing itself down to these two ensemble dramas. But in case you’ve forgotten that Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s The Revenant won Best Director and Best Motion Picture (Drama) at the Golden Globes, Iñárritu’s frontier revenge drama has now taken home the prize for Best Feature Film at the Directors Guild of America Awards, firmly cementing its place in the 2016 Oscar race.
Most comic book movies are meant to appeal to 12-year-olds. Deadpool is the first one feel like it was actually written by one. Gleefully puerile and deeply immature, it has plenty of what the MPAA calls “adult content,” but no actual content for adults; it’s just non-stop dick jokes (and ball jokes), bloody violence, and fourth wall breaks. In other words, it will be the favorite movie of 2016 of every underage boy who sneaks into it next weekend.
One of the funniest parts of the Zoolander 2 trailers features Owen Wilson’s Hansel hurling increasingly large and dangerous objects at Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander in an effort to trigger his magical model powers. You can see a slightly extended version of that scene in one of two new clips Paramount has released to promote the long-delayed comedy sequel, while the other…well…it’s pretty special.
Deadpool hits theaters on Valentine’s Day weekend, offering some wildly violent and profane counter-programming to your typical romantic offerings, though the people at Fox have been doing their best to promote the love story aspect of the film. Two new promos have arrived online, offering a little something for everyone on this special holiday.
