Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...
Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".
Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.
During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

I know what you're thinking. This Deadpool photo is old. It's not. It's brand new. 20th Century Fox released the high-res version of the image after plenty of people pulled this same still out of the trailer that debuted earlier this month. It shows Wade Wilson suited up and showing off his firearm skills, as he soars through the air dispatching bad guys. If you feel a little cheated, we also included the official trailer, because we know you want to see it again!
Shortly after the red band trailer for Deadpool debuted at Comic-Con in July, star Ryan Reynolds told fans that the footage would arrive for all to see in exactly three weeks. True to his word, the actor appeared on TBS' late-night talk show Conan on August 5th to debut the R-rated footage. Shortly following the premiere, we went so far as to break down every frame of this trailer, »

Deadpool has been making a lot of waves amongst the comic book community and his first big screen movie is looking to be one of the most anticipated comic book films next year. But it could be a nightmare for 20th Century Fox according to Ed Skrein.
Skrein, who plays Ajax in the movie, thinks that the movie’s jokes and jibes against celebrities is going to cause havoc for Fox’s lawyers.
“We had Harry Styles, David Beckham, we had Prince Charles, we had so many,” he told Digital Spy. “The funniest part was trying to keep a straight face. Ryan [Reynolds] is such a comedic genius, and then people like Tj Miller, who has a phenomenal sense of humor, they would make every take so different. We were so free in that aspect. I think it’s going to be a nightmare for the Fox lawyers and a nightmare in the edit, »

Ever since fans laid eyes on the first frame of Deadpool‘s test reel late last year, it was evident that Ryan Reynolds’ second stab at the Merc with a Mouth held the potential to go on and become one of – if not the – most faithful comic book adaptations in years. Fast forward to now and we’re within 6 months from D day – that is, when Tim Miller’s R-rated superhero flick will be dragged kicking and screaming into theaters.
With the glorious red-band trailer now in the public’s hands, we’re beginning to learn a bit more about the film’s expanded roster of characters, not to mention the role of Colossus and those Green Lantern jibes. Now, thanks to an interview with Digital Spy, today we’ve got the skinny on Ed Skrein’s rendition of Ajax.

There was So Much Comic Con 2015 discussion in the August edition of the Flickering Myth Movie Show, the debate has actually spilled out into its own 17 minute long video (the in-episode segment was less than half that amount). In the special extended cut (think Apocalypse Now: Redux), the esteemed panel discuss…
-the Star Wars: The Force Awakens behind-the-scenes footage.
-why Marvel weren’t in attendance, and should they have been?
-the new Deadpool trailer.
-the epidemic of ‘leaked footage’.
-and who won Comic Con 2015 overall?
This is an excerpt from the August edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, which you can watch in full here:

Hello again, dear readers, and I hope you all avoided Fantastic Four like the plague this past weekend. On that topic, this is three weeks in a row that I’ve covered a comic book movie here on Trailer Trashin’. Now let’s dive into the new red band trailer for Deadpool.
Premise: In an attempt to cure his terminal cancer, former special forces operative Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is subjected to an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, and a dark and twisted sense of humor. Armed with new abilities and a new identity as “Deadpool,” Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Note: This is a red band trailer, which means it can only play in theaters with R-rated movies, and therefore is not appropriate for those under the age of seventeen. This trailer contains tons of violence, plenty of blood and gore, »

Things are already pretty bad for Fantastic Four. It has rather poor reviews (read ours here and here), a war raging on between director and studio (with Josh Trank tweeting its their fault, and Fox saying it was his), and the film is only tracking to make $25 million by the end of its opening weekend. Fox had already penned in a date for a sequel on June 9th 2017 – but they may be backtracking on that idea.
Deadpool isn’t released until February 2016, but the red band trailer has already generated positive buzz among comic book fans, and according to The Daily Superhero we may see a sequel for it in the place of the current Fantastic Four sequel date.
It should be noted that the source of this rumour is hardly reputable, but it wouldn’t be too out-of-sight for Fox to distance themselves away from the movie following all its bad press. »

Back in February, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Daniel Cudmore revealed that the role of Colossus would be recast in Fox’s X-Men spinoff Deadpool, with Andre Tricoteux (Seventh Son) subsequently announced as having secured the part.
Well, it turns out that Cudmore was offered to reprise the role, with director Tim Miller telling Empire that: “I did actually call Daniel Cudmore to ask him if he wanted to do this, even though he’d be entirely CG the whole time. He was very nice about it. He was like, ‘I appreciate your offering, but nah.'”

Cudmore then took to Twitter in response, stating that: “I did get a call for Colossus but it was CGI/stunts and not using my voice so I graciously passed. Love 2 play him in the future as an actor. »

Update: After posting this piece, my HitFix colleague Roth Cornet and I decided to debate the merits of the trailer on video. You can watch the results above. The ultra-violent "Deadpool" red-band trailer (embedded below) debuted to near-universal acclaim on Tuesday, accompanied by such glowing headlines as "The Deadpool Trailer Is Awesome and Totally Nsfw," "Ryan Reynolds Is Tough, Deadly, Hilarious in the New Deadpool Trailer," and "The Deadpool Trailer Is Violent And Hysterical, Watch It Now". I'm trying so hard to understand this. In fairness, I'm not the biggest superhero movie fan. I appreciate the craft that goes into them and have even enjoyed a couple of the recent Marvel films ("Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" were both top-shelf blockbusters), but overall my geek loyalties lie elsewhere. And yet not being a superhero super-fan doesn't preclude me from having an opinion about them, and »

Unfortunately the other two on the list – Mad Max: Fury Road and Jurassic World – aren’t out on home entertainment yet. Only that shifty-looking dude who hangs out in front of the corner shop on Rectory Road has those. And he’s most definitely breaking some laws.
You know the drill. Do the stuff in bolded red below. UK readers only. The competition closes at midnight on 6th September. By entering this competition you agree to our terms and conditions, which you can read here.

Tim Miller's Deadpool is expected to be chock full of characters from Marvel Comics beyond the titular star, including appearances from Weasel (T.J. Miller), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Angel Dust (Gina Carano) and more. What you probably don't know, however, is that list was originally going to include the comic book mercenary Garrison Kane as well, but that the character ultimately needed to be cut from the feature because of budgetary concerns. Providing all kinds of inside info about the Deadpool red band trailer that launched online last light, Tim Miller recently sat down with Empire and it was during their conversation that Garrison Kane was originally going to be in the movie, and why he no longer is. Telling a roundabout story explaining how Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) wound up being drafted in the film, the director explained that Kane was initially part of plans to inject »
You wouldn’t have expected last month’s Comic Con to have been won by a basically C list comic book property like Deadpool, but that apparently was the case out of San Diego. The panel there was supposedly best in show, not just in terms of superhero flicks, but in general, and that’s saying something. After all, Ryan Reynolds is not exactly a beloved figure there (even if I think he’s very underrated) and the character itself was rather mishandled the first time out, but that’s the difference a great Teaser or Trailer can make. Now, folks can’t wait for the Deadpool movie, and the Trailer we have for you later on this piece will help to explain why. It’s not Oscar material, but hey, sometimes fun is fun. A quick introduction to the superhero. The character is known as “the Merc with the »

Despite only being a shorter version of the Comic-Con trailer (which most of us had already seen after it appropriately leaked online following the movie's Hall H panel), the first official look at Deadpool was still awesome from start to finish. Here, you'll find a selection of the best gifs from the preview; have we missed any of your favourites? As always, let us know in the usual place! Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand, Deadpool is set to be released on February 12th, »
How many times have you already watched the Deadpool trailer that debuted last night on Conan? Well, you surely missed some aspects of this epic, blood-soaked footage. There are plenty of little Easter eggs and not so obvious nods to the Marvel comic books upon which it is based. Director Tim Miller, who makes his directorial debut with this anticipated X-Men spinoff, joined Empire magazine for a comprehensive breakdown of every main shot, and the meaning behind it. First and foremost, he seems to understand that fans weren't happy the first time the Merc with the Mouth made it to the big screen.
Since the 2009 release X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which inexplicably sewed one of Marvel's most talkative character's mouth shut, Ryan Reynolds has aggressively tried to reboot the character on the big screen. »
Hadn't heard much about Deadpool until this year? No worries! The movie's trailer is a great place to start if you need a beginners course on who he is. Ryan Reynolds is playing the titular Marvel character, aka former Special Forces operative Wade Wilson. Wade's body is plagued by cancer, so he agrees to take part in a top-secret trial that would heal him. Instead, it gives him miraculous healing powers . . . but his whole body is scarred. You get to see his face near the end of the trailer, and as Weasel (T.J. Miller) says, he looks like "an avocado had sex with an older avocado." Yep, didn't think that would ever accurately describe Ryan Reynolds. Watch the trailer, also starring Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, and Ed Skrein, then check out all the official pictures so far. Take a look at the first teaser, which even gives a nod to Deadpool's notoriously troubled production. »
