Rob Liefeld, the co-creator of Deadpool and plenty of other comics, was on hand at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and our own Steve Weintraub got the chance to sit down and talk with him about a variety of subjects. During their conversation, they talked about partnering with us for the IMAX screening of Deadpool, what it’s like for him to attend Comic-Con, if he sells his original artwork, the progress he’s making in adapting his fallen angel story Evangline, his thoughts on Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, moving into writing screenplays, … »

The Coen brothers’ 2007 film No Country For Old Men is unlike the traditional westerns it pays homage to. The good guy gets shot, the bad guy gets away, and the audience is left feeling uneasy about the whole experience. Perhaps the most non-traditional moment of the entire film is its seemingly unrelated closing monologue, delivered by Tommy Lee Jones’ character Sheriff Bell to his wife just before the film abruptly cuts to black. But a new video essay from ScreenPrism suggests that Sheriff Bell’s calmly delivered speech actually encapsulates the film’s themes and gives deeper insight into its title.
Throughout the film, Sheriff Bell has been following the trail of Llewelyn Moss and hitman Anton Chigurh, played by Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem, respectively, and bears witness to the meaningless violence and destruction left in their wake. The dream Bell recounts at the film’s close suggest »

If you have checked out any images or footage (or checked out the leaked footage) of Avengers: Infinity War, you may have noticed one thing right away: Thanos looks very different. Gone is the classic armor that he typically don and what we have instead is a very stripped down Thanos. Less galactic warlord, and a bit more Gears of War. So what’s the deal? Well, according to Avengers: Infinity War director Joe Russo, there is a very good reason for this. Speaking to IGN, the director went into detail…
“[Thanos] has a more casual approach in this film, and it’s very philosophical for him. It’s part of his character definition. It’s a spiritual journey for him to collect the Stones, and one with which he doesn’t need armor. Once he starts acquiring the Stones, he doesn’t need armor in the same way he did »

While the X-Men franchise has ultimately been served pretty well with the long-running franchise, there is a negative side to these films. In keeping the focus on Wolverine, Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, they’ve given a lot of other characters the short end of the stick. Among those characters have been Jubilee, Angel, Gambit, Juggernaut, and of course, Colossus. Yes, all of these characters have had some screen time, but not really enough to make a solid impact, and that’s the main downside when you have a cast of 127 mutants.
While it’s impossible for the studio to actually take time to properly focus on some of these characters, the fact that Fox is willing to actually split the X-Men's related characters up into different franchises has already made a difference with one pretty big character. I’m talking about Colossus. This is a guy who plays a »

Matt Damon will do whatever it takes to protect his family in the first trailer for the George Clooney-directed “Suburbicon”, which Paramount released Thursday (July 27). The 1950s-set movie, written by the Coen Brothers, stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, Noah Jupe, and Oscar Isaac, and tells the story of Gardner Lodge (Damon), a […] »

The bonafides for “Suburbicon” you can read right from the main credits: it’s the latest directorial effort from George Clooney, it stars Matt Damon, and it was written by Joel and Ethan Coen. If that’s not enough to get you into the cinema, well, there’s always more traditional methods, such as the first trailer for the movie.

Rome – Darren Aronofsky’s horror thriller “Mother!” and new films by George Clooney and Guillermo del Toro will world premiere at the 74th Venice Film Festival, along with hotly anticipated titles from directors such as France’s Abdellatif Kechiche.

The origin of the Deadpool movie has become one of the great stories of Hollywood. It’s a film that spent a solid six-ish years in development. They had carried it along to the test footage stage, but when it came time to push it forward to the next one, 20th Century Fox simply didn’t have the confidence to move forward. It wasn’t until the infamous test footage leaked in 2014 that things finally started moving forward.
Speaking with Collider, director Tim Miller reflected on this moment in time, and on his feelings when the footage was leaked.
“We developed [Deadpool]. We did the little test. It just didn’t happen. In Hollywood, stuff gets to a point — you get a budget, you get a movie star and everything — then the studio says yes or no. If they say no, then everyone walks away quickly. »

Following on from Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War reveal, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has taken to Twitter to discuss Groot’s appearance in the superhero ensemble, explaining why he looks the same as he did as ‘Adolescent Groot’ in the post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, despite an in-universe time gap of around four years between the two movies. Here’s Gunn’s post from Facebook clearing things up:
“People are asking me a lot about how fast Groot grows, because in his appearance in the Infinity War trailer he was an Adolescent (not a “teen” as has been reported in many places). This is exactly the same state of growth you see in the post credits scene of Vol. 2: Adolescent Groot.
In terms of how fast Groot grows overall, I can tell you this: Baby Groot appears two months after the Infant »

Cate Blanchett is breaking barriers — evil ones.
The actress, 48, is stepping into the role of Hela, the goddess of death in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok — and she recently that she is actually the first female villain to appear in a Marvel movie.
“I didn’t realize until Marvel told me that I was inhabiting the first female Marvel villain onscreen,” the actress told E! News at Comic Con. “I thought, ‘Surely not.’ Well, no actually that’s true! There’s been many, many, many in the comic books, but they’ve been a little tardy in bringing them to the screen, »

The Merc with a Mouth is squeezing back into the tight red spandex again for Deadpool 2, and he's bringing a lot of new blood with him. Of course, there's the much-hyped additions of Josh Brolin as Cable, the fan-favorite gruff mutant mercenary, and Zazie Beets as Domino, a fellow X-Force anti-hero, but Deadpool 2 also brings John Wick co-director David Leitch to the helm as director. With Leitch's spy thriller Atomic Blonde arriving in theaters this week, Collider's Perri Nemiroff recently sat down for a chat with the director for … »

“Deadpool” and “Terminator Genisys” used stolen technology to create their big-screen razzle-dazzle, according to new lawsuits filed by visual-effects company Rearden. In complaints filed against Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox in federal court in California on Monday, Rearden claims that 2015’s “Terminator Genisys” and 2016’s “Deadpool,” among other films, employed a technology called Mova Contour Reality Capture, which according to the suits was invented — and stolen from — Rearden. The suit against Fox similarly claims that the Mova technology was used without authorization from Rearden to create the face of Colossus for “Deadpool.” Also Read: 'Deadpool 2:' Josh Brolin Shares. »

San Diego Comic-Con, the world’s biggest celebration of comics, film, television, and everything pop culture just wrapped up another big weekend. This year was particularly busy for the infamous Hall H, as thousands of people lined up for a seat to one of the many panels full of exclusives and reveals. (One particular fan I spoke to, who was about a mile down the line along the San Diego harbour, said he had been waiting for 12 hours at that point!)
On the film side, it was all about Saturday with the Warner Brothers panel kicking it off. Ready Player One, the Steven Spielberg film based on the novel of the same name, gave the crowd the first look at the trailer. »

It may still be keeping the Avengers: Infinity War footage under wraps [despite it leaking online], but Marvel has decided to officially release its Comic-Con triptych poster for the hotly-anticipated superhero epic, which sees Thanos and his Black Order alongside The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out here…
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th 2018 in the UK and May 4th 2018 in the Us »

Between them, Justice League and Avengers: Infinity War effectively brought the Internet to a standstill throughout the course of the weekend, after Warner Bros. and Marvel showcased their costumed crusaders to those in attendance at Sdcc.
The latter tentpole, one which is due to arrive on May 4th of 2018, brings together some of our favorite Marvel mascots…and not a moment too soon. Thanos has planet Earth in his sights, and Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan will stop at nothing until he is in possession of all six Infinity Stones – Infinity Stones that will seemingly give him the power to bring “balance” back to the universe. Exactly what that means is anyone’s guess at this early stage, but it seems some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may have to lay their lives on the line to scupper Thanos’ plans for galactic domination.
That show-stopping spectacle was on full display »

Marvel Studios may have decided against releasing its D23 and San Diego Comic-Con trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, but sure enough a few sneaky people in Hall H managed to record the footage, and post it online in atrocious quality for all to see. Let’s hope Marvel releases an official version soon, but if you can’t wait, we have it for you here (although it’s probably not going to stay online very long)…
