With another Super Bowl usually comes a wave of new movie trailers, some for films that aren’t due for ten months (maybe we’ll get to Wicked, maybe we won’t) but the one we were waiting for was Deadpool 3, now called Deadpool And Wolverine. And it didn’t take very long in the game for us to get it.
The Adam Project is another upcoming Netflix original film starring Ryan Reynolds because he is the draw. He won’t be winning Oscars anytime soon but who cares about awards if you laugh your way to the bank.
On August 13, Ryan Reynolds will finally star in Free Guy, a comedy that was meant to debut over a year ago but got hit with repeated delays due to the pandemic and the lack of theaters to play it in. All traditional promotion for this movie was released ages ago, so how will they spark up interest once more? Simple…Reynolds happens to know a fourth-wall breaking hero with irreverence as a superpower. (Have they ever appeared in the same room? Hmm…)
It’s hard to accept, but it’s been 20 entire years since the Pokemon franchise first emerged Godzilla-like onto US shores. Dismissed as a fad at the time, the brand has endured with both kids and adults to become a cross-generational phenomenon. It’s inevitable, then, that Hollywood would eventually come knocking to create a live-action take on it.
20th Century Fox just jumbled up its entire release schedule for the next year. We’ll get to the other changes in a bit, but one of the most peculiar is a newly revealed PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, taking the place where James Cameron’s Battle Angel Alita was originally meant to go (December 21).
The release of Deadpool 2 is now precisely one month away — May 18. That means we get one more trailer, but according to the title and thumbnail, today’s two and a half minute sneak peek is the very last one. What a pity — we were having so much fun together, but all things must come to an end. That being said, it would be just like Deadpool to pull a “Final Trailer After The Final Trailer” stunt. We can only hope.
So, the Oscar nominations were revealed tonight, and somewhat not surprisingly, Deadpool did not receive an award nomination from the committee. In case you were out of the loop, a previous awards association did nominate Deadpool for some awards, and this show and the Oscars have had a lot of crossover in the past. Yet, it didn’t seem to matter, as Deadpool was left off of the ballot.
Ryan Reynolds had gotten his wish when he finally got to make the Deadpool movie he wanted for 20th Century Fox. Outside of being one of the highest grossing movies of the year, it really set a different standard for what comic book movies could be. However, with the sequel, there’s already rocky roads ahead because creative differences led to the departure of director Tim Miller. Reynolds recently chatted with GQ on the subject.
Sometimes, people just surprise you, or astound you by random acts that they do. For celebrities, you’d think they’d have better things to do than “associate” with people below them, but that’s not true at all (at least not for some of them). For many, it’s an honor to dedicate their time to charities and causes, few of which are better than the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
It almost seems like some sort of ironic joke at this point that the Deadpool movie is finally under way. To finally add some fuel to this fire to make it seem more real, Ryan Reynolds has revealed to the world via Twitter the first look at him as Deadpool in costume.
