‘Deadpool’ to Pummel Box Office Competition Over President’s Weekend

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Reynolds is looking to achieve box office redemption with “Deadpool.”

After seeing his once-white hot career flicker at a low ebb, diminished by flops such as “R.I.P.D.” and “Green Lantern,” the actor seems to have rediscovered his mojo. “Deadpool,” a very R-rated comic book adaptation about a wise-cracking mercenary, is on track to do as much as $70 million over the four-day President’s Weekend when it opens in more than 3,540 locations. Fox, the studio behind the picture is being more conservative, pegging a debut between $60 million to $65 million.

Whatever the final result, “Deadpool” has a very strong chance of enjoying the second biggest President’s Weekend launch in history, behind only “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” $93 million debut. It should also be a boon to Reynolds. The actor played Deadpool in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” and has been agitating for a standalone adventure for some time. The picture got »

Dolls' Day Out! Derek Zoolander Just Hung Out with Barbie (and the Photos Are Epic)

6 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There's no stopping Derek Zoolander. Zoolander 2's Ben Stiller has gone above and beyond to promote the highly anticipated sequel to his 2001 super-hit (it hits theaters Feb. 12). From channeling mannequins at the Valentino store in Rome, Italy, with costar Owen Wilson (Hansel) to staging a walk-off with Cara Delevingne in Paris, Stiller, er, Zoolander, has transformed into a non-stop marketing machine. But it's not all work and no play for the star: a doll version of Zoolander chose to ring in the start of a new week with Barbie on Monday (yes, that Barbie). The model and icon packed »

'Deadpool' Vs. 'Zoolander 2' at the Box Office: Who Wins?

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the past few years, February has gone from a month that rarely features any box office hits, to a viable frame to open big blockbusters. Recent hits like The Lego Movie, Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman: The Secret Service have proved that fans will brave the elements and head to the theaters in droves for the right movie, and this year is no different, with three new releases arriving this weekend, all of which are slated to take in more than $20 million, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com. The big runaway winner, though, is expected to be the superhero adaptation Deadpool, which could come close to making box office history, although Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single are expected to perform well also.

Last month, analysts started tracking this blockbuster-to-be, predicting that its opening weekend could be anywhere between $55 million and $60 million. The movie has »

Listed: 10 best movie sequels

9 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s been fifteen years since Derek Zoolander and Hansel last walked the runway. This year they're back, and better than ever.

With the highly anticipated Zoolander 2 hitting theatres this Friday, it's the perfect opportunity to look at some of the best movie sequels of all time.

We have high hopes for Zoolander 2Ben StillerOwen Wilson and Will Ferrell are joined by Kristen Wiig,Penelope CruzBenedict Cumberbatch, and even Justin Bieber. It’s a sequel that’s going to be filled with cameos, laughs, and hopefully a lot of “Magnum” and “Blue Steel.”

The question is, will Zoolander 2 be better than the first? It’ll be tough to out-do the cult comedy classic, but below we take a look at ten sequels that arguably did just that. A great idea can sustain more than one film, and here’s proof that sometimes things are even better the second time around. »

Ben Stiller's Ad For Female Viagra Will Put You in the Mood . . . to Never Touch Your Husband Again

10 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

While Ben Stiller has been riding the high of promoting Zoolander 2 for the past few weeks, he was majorly disappointed when he saw the "commercial" he recently filmed for the Super Bowl didn't make the cut. Thankfully, when he stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, the talk-show host graciously unveiled Ben's football-themed ad for female Viagra to the masses (yes, you read that right: football-themed ad for female Viagra). "Even though zero women suffer from erectile dysfunction, over 98 percent of women over 30 suffer from another condition called 'not being turned on by their husband anymore,'" Ben reads while lounging on a bed in a football jersey. "Female Viagra helps women get in the mood - and stay in the mood." It's bizarre and hilarious, which is Ben's strong suit. Check it out above, and see his amazing appearance on SNL with Owen Wilson! »

Amanda Seyfried To Star Opposite Ed Helms For New Comedy The Clapper

8 February 2016 1:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Writer-director Dito Montiel (Man Down) is set to take the reins of his own passion project The Clapper, Deadline reports that Montiel has already secured his two leading cast members in Ed Helms and Ted 2 star Amanda Seyfried.

Adapted from Montiel’s own novel of the same name, The Clapper is pitched as an offbeat comedy that chronicles the life of a professional clapper, who makes a living sitting on in infomercials and applauding on cue. A drab and dreary profession, it’s understood that Ed Helms will take point in the lead role as Eddie Krumble, who unwittingly becomes the center of attention while in the audience for a Jay Leno talk show. Thrusting him into the limelight for 15 minutes of fame, Helms’ character is soon left battling unwanted attention that threatens both his employment and flailing love life.

As for Seyfried, the actress has reportedly been cast for the role of Judy, »

Watch: Derek Zoolander & Hansel Visit 'Saturday Night Live,' Plus New Clip And TV Spots From 'Zoolander 2'

8 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One movie that didn't get a Super Bowl spot last night was "Zoolander 2," but don't think that Paramount was sleeping on the upcoming sequel. Instead, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) swung by "Saturday Night Live," where mild hilarity ensued. The duo popped up during "Weekend Update," offering their take on the current political landscape, mocking Bernie Sanders' rumpled suit, marking their surprise that O.J. Simpson is killing people again, and much more. It's...fine, about what you'd expect from your average 'SNL' cameo. Meanwhile, there's a new clip from the movie, plus some fresh TV spots. "Zoolander 2" opens on February 12th. »

Zoolander and Hansel's Appearance on SNL Will Totally Make You Lol

7 February 2016 12:27 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson dropped by Saturday Night Live this week as their Zoolander characters, Derek Zoolander and Hansel, "to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics." However, during "Weekend Update," the men reverted to their old ways and went on to assess Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Donald Trump's style. Hansel weighed in on Hillary's fashion sense, saying, "Hillary's from the '90s, which is really hot right now," while Zoolander stated that her style reminded him of his icon, Kim Jong-un. The men also confused Ted Cruz for Tom Cruise before going in on Donald. Watch the clip above now, and then check out Larry David's triumphant return to SNL. »

Derek Zoolander and Hansel Stop by 'SNL' to Talk Fashion

7 February 2016 11:14 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, but the show was stolen during the regular sketch Weekend Update, with two surprise guests stopping by. Zoolander 2 stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an unannounced appearance as their beloved characters Derek Zoolander and Hansel. While they were supposed to discuss Fashion Week in New York City, they instead discussed the fashion style of this year's Presidential candidates, where they shared their thoughts on Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and, of course, Donald Trump.

Their appearance came just days after the final trailer was released, which revealed that the obscure character Evil DJ (Justin Theroux) from the original Zoolander will return. In the original Zoolander, Justin Theroux had a small part as Evil DJ, who challenged both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to a break-dance showdown, set to the original "Relax." While he wasn't very well-known at the time, »

Watch: Zoolander and Hansel Talk Political Fashion on ‘SNL’

7 February 2016 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s only one thing hotter than fashion right now, and that’s politics — at least, according to male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson stopped by “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” segment as the ridiculously good looking men, giving their opinions on not fashion, but the current political environment, with the “Iowa couscous” having just wrapped up. Unsurprisingly, this confused co-host Colin Jost.

“We’re not here to talk about fashion,” Wilson told him. “We’re here to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics.”

Of course, the conversation inevitably turned to fashion, with the models commenting on the candidates’ styles. Clinton’s rocking a ’90s look, “which is really hot right now,” Hansel explained. Meanwhile, her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, who made his own elongated appearance on the show that night, dons a style best described as “99 percent off at JCPenney. »

‘Zoolander’ Takes Over ‘SNL’ Weekend Update to Blast Presidential Candidates’ Fashion (Video)

Bernie Sanders and Larry David weren’t the only stars to get some big laughs on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Two of the world’s sexiest male models appeared alongside Colin Jost on Weekend Update to talk politics and fashion. “Zoolander 2” characters Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) argued Hillary Clinton may have beat Sanders in Iowa “because the ’90s are very hot right now.” “Hillary’s style reminds me of one of my all-time fashion icons: Kim Jong-un,” Zoolander said before bashing her competition. “Bernie’s a champion of the 99 percent — apparently the 99 percent off at JCPenney. »

Watch the 1975 Bring 'The Sound' to 'SNL'

7 February 2016 7:49 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The 1975 served as the musical act for the Larry David-hosted, Bernie Sanders-guested episode of Saturday Night Live, with both the Democratic candidate and the Curb Your Enthusiasm star appearing onscreen together to introduce the British pop-rockers.

For the performances, Matthew Healy and company shared a pair of singles off the band's upcoming second LP I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, "The Sound," which was bolstered by a sextet of background singers, and the Inxs-indebted "Love Me."

Video – Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson Zoolander-ize Hillary, Bernie & Donald On ‘SNL’

7 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

What was the best bit during the so-so SNL that host Larry David promised in his opening monologue? The breath-of-fresh-air appearance of Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hans (Owen Wilson) during “Weekend Update” to pronounce, fashionwise, on the state of the presidential candidates. Ok, so I’m a sucker for malaprops (“couscous” for “caucuses”) and rimshot rejoinders, but after David’s surly predictability too-often reprised, I belly-laughed at the separated-at-birth… »

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson Stop by SNL to Talk Fashion, Because the Zoolander 2 Press Tour Will Outlive Us All

7 February 2016 6:06 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ben Stiller only appeared on four episodes of SNL back when he was a featured performer, but it seems that Derek Zoolander is more welcome in the building. Stiller and Owen Wilson dropped by Weekend Update last night, ostensibly to talk about politics and fashion, but mostly because this Zoolander 2 press tour has become a real neverending story. The movie comes out at the end of this week, but the press tour will continue for ever and ever, concluding only with a promo clip where Zoolander teaches Falkor to Blue Steel. »

Zoolander invaded Saturday Night Live this week to talk ... politics? Yes, Ben Stiller (Derek Zoolander) and Owen Wilson (Hansel) stopped by Weekend Update to talk the presidential primaries.
