Early tracking for Fox's Deadpool solo film suggested that Tim Miller's profanity and violence-laden superhero outing would bring in around $65 million. That number inflated over the past week, and thanks to a strong preview night on Thursday, February 11, the estimate for the risky action film ballooned to $135 million — and that's precisely how much Deadpool made in its first three days in theaters, shattering a few box office records along the way.
We all remember Batkid, aka Miles Scott, the young boy suffering from cancer who got to fulfill his dream of being Batman for a day thanks to the help of the city of San Francisco and the Make-A-Wish foundation. The charitable organization has helped to make another ailing kid's superhero dreams come true, transforming nine-year-old Iron Man fan Domenic Pace into Iron Boy — and he's even been endorsed by Robert Downey Jr. himself.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters hits theaters in just five months, and while we’ve seen plenty of photos and toys based on the upcoming film, we’ve yet to see any actual footage. That sort of changes today, as Sony has released an announcement trailer featuring the first glimpse of footage (it’s quite foreboding) along with the promise of a real, honest-to-goodness trailer…in March.
From riding a polar bear in The Huntsman: Winter’s War (which could very well be the most bonkers movie of the year) to lending her voice to a new character in the My Little Pony movie, Emily Blunt is apparently determined to defy expectations. The star of one of last year’s best films (Sicario) is certainly making some interesting choices, and while you might scoff at a My Little Pony movie, one thing is for sure: That movie is going to make serious bank.
So far, all the new casting additions for Fifty Shades Darker have been women, making it seem as though the sequel does nothing to disprove the idea that this is a crazy-pants world in which everything and everyone revolves around Christian Grey. If you were getting tired of looking at that guy, good news: not only has the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel added a new male cast member, but he’s going to be competing for our attention (and Ana’s too, sure).
If you still had doubts about whether Dwayne Johnson’s R-rated Baywatch movie could actually be funny, here’s some news that should dismiss them. Comedian Hannibal Buress has joined Johnson in the upcoming comedic take on the popular ’90s TV series, in which he’ll play — well, does it really matter who he’s playing? He’s going to make you laugh either way.
Earlier this week, Nicolas Cage signed on to star in Vengeance: A Love Story, a film that — at the time — sounded like the most Cage-appropriate movie ever, and that title’s not even the half of it. Now comes word of another film that could give Vengeance a run for its money, as Cage is reuniting with his Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance director for Mom and Dad, a movie in which he will try to kill his own children.
Last summer we learned that Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) was interested in directing Bad Boys 3, which Sony has scheduled for a 2017 release. He was never officially confirmed for the job, but these new pre-visualization images he shared on Twitter are all the confirmation you need that Carnahan is behind the wheel on the long-developing sequel.
Hardcore Henry premiered at TIFF last fall under the title Hardcore, and swiftly inspired a bidding war over distribution rights for the innovative first-person POV action flick. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and executive-produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Hardcore takes the concept of first-person shooter video games and transforms it into one relentless, action-packed and gnarly film that’s sure to draw comparisons to RoboCop.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to make its debut on London’s West End this summer, offering a new sequel of sorts in the franchise, but one that will only be performed as a play. However, there’s some good news for all the devoted Harry Potter fans who won’t be able to attend the stage production: the script for the play will be published as a book in July — July 31, to be precise, which just happens to be one Mr. Potter’s birthday.
