Do you see that picture above? That's what happened the last time someone tried to make a movie with fan favorite Marvel character Deadpool. The film was 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' and the Deadpool on-screen (played by Ryan Reynolds) was nothing like the character in the comics. Ryan Reynolds knows this and says a Deadpool spinoff will be self-aware and acknowledge how awful the 'Wolverine' movie was and how upset the character is that that is how he was portrayed in a movie. All the sudden this Deadpool movie sounds...interesting?
Much like the characters within the film, my attitude toward 'The Croods' evolved.
The first 25 minutes or so are awful. The uninteresting, darn-near-ugly character designs, dumb jokes and frenetic, boisterous action in lieu of ingenuity or thrills in 'The Croods'' first act is a chore. I was stunned to check my watch and realize how much left I had in the movie. “Man,” I thought to myself, “it's amazing how wretched some of these kids' films can be compared to something like 'Rango.'”
Then the bottom fell out (in a surprisingly literal way) and 'The Croods' transformed. “Man,” I thought to myself, “this is the weirdest, most adventuresome and gorgeous kids' film I've seen since 'Rango.'”
When you watch the 'Turbo' trailer, realize to yourself that someone over at DreamWorks Animation decided that there was cinematic potential in the concept of racing snails, successfully pitched it and took home a paycheck as his work was painstakingly animated and rendered by a team of hard working professionals. The result? It looks like DreamWorks' attempt to grab some of that sweet, sweet 'Cars' money.
Can cavemen be adorable? Dreamworks Animation's 'The Croods' seems to think so, but the jury's still out on whether or not the result is cute or creepy. Anyway, first clip from the March 22nd release has arrived and it seems that awkward romantic situations were also a thing back in the prehistoric times. Oh, those cavemen! They were just like us!
For a season of ‘Family Guy‘ that's already featured Johnny Depp reprising the iconic role of Edward Scissorhands, you'd think the celebrity quotient would have been met. Not so! After appearing once as himself as well as in Seth MacFarlane’s feature-film debut ‘Ted,’ Ryan Reynolds makes his second 'Family Guy' appearance with this Sunday's "Jesus, Mary and Joseph," guesting as the son of God you never knew. Are you ready to meet Ryan Reynolds, your lord and savior in the latest clip?
Insert "There can be only one director" jokes here. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, director of '28 Weeks Later' and last year's 'Intruders,' was set to direct a 'Highlander' remake with Ryan Reynolds attached to star. It looks like he and production company Summit have made a decision to see other people as he's now leaving the project. But what does that mean for the 'Highlander' remake/reboot/whatever it ends up being?
Though many people probably want a 'Green Lantern 2' movie come to fruition, it's been widely presumed it at least wouldn't happen for a while. Ryan Reynolds, the star of the first film, is signed on to star in a reboot of 'Highlander;' not to mention the fact that 'Deadpool,' which is probably more of a priority than another 'Green Lantern,' is stuck on hold for the moment.
Still, there has been hopeful rumors about about a 'Green Lantern 2' script by Marc Guggenheim floating around, but is there any truth to them? Now that a 'Justice League' movie is coming at us in the next few years, will we see another Green Lantern-focused film?
One day, the curious daughter of a prehistoric family leaves her cave, prompting a catastrophic event that opens them up to a whole new world of bright colors and strange creatures.
Universal has seen plenty of misfires and almost-hits this year, between 'Battleship' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' they didn't have a great summer (though 'Ted' managed to save them a little), while fall picture '47 Ronin' was bumped into 2013. But studios are all about franchises these days, and one of the few films that worked for them in 2012 was 'Safe House.' Big surprise, they want a sequel.
