Led by a massive cast of mutants stars, including Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto and series newcomer Oscar Isaac as the evil Apocalypse, “X-Men: Apocalypse” won the four-day Memorial Day weekend box office with an estimated $80 million. The 20th Century Fox sequel didn’t make nearly as much as its predecessor, “Days of Future Past,” which brought in $110.6 million when it opened on the holiday weekend in 2014 — and ranks at No. 5 of all-time Memorial Day weekend returns. Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” came in second place. The sequel to the 2010 Disney hit presented little »

While Thursday night previews for “X-Men: Apocalypse” were strong, the sequel’s box office performance on Friday indicates that it is no “Days of Future Past.” The 20th Century Fox movie brought in $26.4 million on Friday — much less than the $35.5 million grossed by “X-Men: Days of Future Past” on its first full day of release. That movie went on to a huge $110.6 million opening weekend during the Memorial Day holiday in 2014. Early tracking has the “X-Men” sequel aiming for $100 million over this four-day weekend, including Monday’s results. Studio estimates, however, are set a bit lower, at »

The film’s immediate predecessor, “Days of Future Past,” launched with $8.1 million at the Thursday box office in 2014 and went on to earn $110.6 million over its three-day holiday weekend.

Earlier this week, we showed you an extended preview with a slew of new footage from Independence Day: Resurgence, along with posters that showed four of the world's iconic landmarks being destroyed by these alien invaders. With just under one month left until this sequel finally hits theaters, we have a new preview where cast members Jeff Goldblum and Liam Hemsworth shed some new light on the story. The plot is set 20 years after the first movie, where the world finds itself unprepared yet again for an alien attack.
The 20th Century Fox YouTube page debuted this preview, which showcases how the alien technology has advanced even more than what we saw 20 years ago. Jeff Goldblum claims that fans have never seen "world destruction" like this in this epic sequel, while this footage also reveals that one of the alien ships is as big as the entire Atlantic Ocean. We also hear from Liam Hemsworth, »
“X-Men: Apocalypse” may feature superstar Jennifer Lawrence along with other returning star mutants, but the 20th Century Fox sequel probably won’t come within the $110.6 million opening made by its predecessor, 2014’s “Days of Future Past.” Early tracking has the “X-Men” sequel aiming for $100 million for the long Memorial Day weekend (counting Monday’s results). Although studio estimates are set lower, just above $80 million.

Nicole Beharie‘s Abbie Mills may be dead, but “Sleepy Hollow” is actually very much still alive. Fox has renewed its supernatural drama for a fourth season, a show that many (once again) thought would head to the graveyard instead.

The 20th Century Fox Television and K/O Paper Products series hails from Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Len Wiseman and Phillip Iscove.

Oscar-winning director also planning an English-language feature.
Hungarian filmmaker Laszlo Nemes, whose Oscar-winning debut Son Of Saul opens in the UK later this month, has revealed plans to shoot his second feature next year.
Speaking to ScreenDaily, Nemes said he hoped to shoot Sunset in Budapest in spring 2017 and that he would work with the same crew, including cinematographer Matyas Erdely, from Holocaust drama Son Of Saul.
“We’ve already started testing and I’m looking forward to working with the same crew,” said the 39 year-old director.
Sunset will centre on a young woman in Budapest before the First World War and will be produced by Gabor Sipos and Gabor Rajna of Hungary’s Laokoon Filmgroup, the production company behind Son Of Saul.
In a previous interview with Screen, Nemes said the film will be set in 1910, when the city was cosmopolitan, tolerant and full of inhabitants from different cultural and religious backgrounds.

Katharine McPhee has a long and colorful history when it comes to televised karaoke.
On the positive end of the spectrum, she finished in second place during the fifth season of American Idol — arguably the finest, most patriotic karaoke contest on television — but she also sang “Redneck Woman” on Smash, a song choice that still keeps me up at night. (Yes, I know she was “playing” a “character,” but has there ever been anyone more real than Karen Cartwright?)

It is a box-office success story which must be celebrated. Walt Disney’s Zootropolis, which opens in the U.K. over the Easter break, has now climbed to an enormous $431 million in global cinema takings, and has secured the number one spot in America from the second week in a row, so reports Box-Office Mojo.

If you can’t beat 'em, join 'em. Hollywood sure loves to follow the trend of the moment, and it appears Warner Bros. is following suit. It was unveiled on the Film Ratings website, per the MPAA (via StitchKingdom), that WB will be releasing an R-rated version of “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” following in the wake of “Deadpool.” The 20th Century Fox mutant film starring Ryan Reynolds of course changed the game two weeks ago when it debuted with a $132 million opening — the highest opening R-Rated film of all time and by a considerable margin.

Last week, we reported that 20th Century Fox was planning a number of events for Deadpool during Super Bowl 50 weekend. For those in the San Francisco area during the big game, you may have noticed star Ryan Reynolds running a food truck and handing out the Merc's favorite food, chimichangas on Friday night, and on Saturday night, the studio took over a local bar near the stadium, which will be renamed Sister Margaret's Bar after the watering hole in the movie. For Deadpool fans all over the world, though, the studio debuted a new TV spot during the game which includes plenty of new footage.

If you’re still on the fence about seeing “Deadpool” next weekend, nearly every critic who has reviewed the Marvel superhero movie is advising you to get off of it and buy a ticket. The 20th Century Fox release, starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth and directed by Tim Miller, has a stellar 96 percent “fresh” approval rating from the 27 critics counted on Rotten Tomatoes, so far. While there’s bound to be more naysayers emerging, that’s still an admirable reception. “‘Deadpool’ hit the sweet spot of entertaining violence – there’s nothing like an R-rated superhero movie to underscore. »

Deadpool is set to have the biggest Valentine's Day opening at the box office ever. And because of that, the superhero epic has not been shy about showing off its sexier, more romantic side. Today, the Merc with the Mouth has released two special Valentine's Day themed videos, hoping you'll call him for a date. About finding that perfect someone, he reaches out with these sultry words.
"Hello there ladies, and some gentlemen. People. Let's go with people. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought maybe you and I could, you know, (bleep). But only in (bleep). Sure, I know what you're thinking. He sounds real sexy. But what's under that red suit? Just imagine the body of Ryan Reynolds with the face of Ryan Reynolds' inbred cousin who burnt his face in a bizarre marshmallow roasting accident. But to compensate for that, what else, super penis! Hmm. Call me. »
Deadpool is shaping up to be one of 2016's first big box office hits, with a report from last month claiming that the unconventional superhero adventure could earn more than $55 million in its opening weekend.

If that's not enough for you, we also have another excerpt from the Junkie Xl soundtrack that you can listen to.

Last week, Deadpool delivered two testicular cancer PSAs, asking his fellow man to touch themselves in the name of good health. Now the good doctor is back with an all-new video.

As you've likely noticed from the trailers and all of the other previously-released footage, Deadpool is not your everyday superhero. He curses up a storm and has no problem taking both his friends and enemies down a peg with his sarcastic sense of humor. But, despite his rough-around-the-edges nature, the Merc With the Mouth is still a good guy at heart, and in a new series of videos, Ryan Reynolds dons the maroon suit to help spread awareness for a worthy cause: testicular cancer. As you can imagine, these new Deadpool videos aren't your typical PSA's.
