The "merc with the mouth" is finally coming to the big screen. After test footage of Ryan Reynolds doing his thing as the sword-wielding comic book figure surfaced online, 20th Century Fox announced that a 'Deadpool' movie will indeed be made, further spinning off the 'X-Men' cinematic universe. But the key question now remains is, will Reynolds himself pick up the reins once again?
Ryan Reynolds is committed to eventually getting a 'Deadpool' movie made at Fox. The problem is that Fox doesn't seem nearly as convinced. Says director Tim Miller, "Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are more than ready, we just need that elusive green light." To help convince the studio and show them a little of their vision for the film, Miller and Reynolds collaborated on some test footage that shows the merc with a mouth in action.
This is a side of Ryan Reynolds we always like seeing: gruff, dark, and super dramatic. In director Atom Egoyan's newest thriller 'The Captive,' Reynolds plays a father whose daughter is kidnapped and mysteriously reappears eight years later, and the first trailer is cut together quite nicely, really selling us on the suspense.
There's nothing funny about schizophrenia. 'The Voices' understands this, and shows the horror of the disease. And then has you cracking up anyway. It's this diabolical blend of shock and candy-colored kitsch without mockery that makes this first English-language film from Marjane Satrapi ('Persepolis,' 'Chicken with Plums') so unique and, to be honest, something that will turn most people off.
Ever since Ryan Reynolds brought Deadpool to life in the comic book character's first live-action screen appearance for the dreaded 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine,' fans have been pining for "the merc with a mouth" to get his own solo movie. Unfortunately, this has been one of those films trapped in development hell, but director Tim Miller "will never give up." In fact, both him and Reynolds seem pretty optimistic that it will get made ... eventually.
Remember that Ryan Reynolds 'Deadpool' movie? We haven't heard anything about it in over a year, but according to the actor, it's still happening. Sort of. Maybe? Reynolds seems optimistic, but we're still not quite sure we'll be seeing this thing anytime soon, judging by his account of the film's bumpy pre-production history.
If you're going to borrow a formula, you might as well borrow the formula for one of the more successful franchises in recent memory. People have been jokingly calling 'R.I.P.D.' "'Men in Black' with ghosts" for some time now, and for darn good reason: it does look like 'Men in Black' with ghosts. Not that there's anything wrong with that. If you want us to see a movie where the great Jeff Bridges plays an undead cowboy hunting down stray spirits, all you have to do is tell us when to get in line. Anyway, two new banners for the film have arrived, and guess what? They too make 'R.I.P.D.' look like 'Men in Black' with ghosts.
