Deadpool, Which Stars Definitely, Maybe’s Ryan Reynolds, Is Too Profane for China

18 January 2016 7:44 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Deadpool, a film starring Ryan Reynolds, who romanced Sandra Bullock in The Proposal, has been denied release in China because of its depictions of violence, nudity, and graphic language. China has no formal ratings system, which means the country's authorities simply approve or ban all foreign films for Chinese consumption. According to The Hollywood Reporter, officials sometimes work with studios to create special cuts of R-rated films to pass the censors, but, in this case, the superhero movie starring the guy who played Abigail Breslin's dad in Definitely, Maybe couldn't be cleaned up without excising major plot points. Deadpool is set for Stateside release on February 12. Given its credentials as a Marvel superhero film (which just happens to star the actor who voiced Turbo), it could have done exceedingly good business in China (Avengers: Age of Ultron made $240 million there last summer). But, for now, Canada's most symmetrical leading »

2015 Tribeca Film Festival: ‘Maggie’

15 January 2016 6:22 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

With zombie movies and shows being all the rage nowadays, the “zombie rules” become a bit overwhelming, to say the least. Do the humans turn immediately or after a while? Are they fast or slow? Do they still function as normal human beings, just slower, or do they have superhuman strength and rational? Do they enjoy Queen or are they a huge Deliverance fan? The list goes on and on, and I’m sure there’s more you can add.

Well Maggie is a different kind of story. It’s not a survival story like most zombie films, and it’s not a rebuilding and restructuring story like others. Maggie is more about the moment, take a combination of Amy’s death from The Walking Dead and R turning human. It’s essentially an hour and half of dying, in a rather disheartening setting between shockingly emotional acting from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin. »
