Yesterday may have just been an average Sunday for most people, but fans of the Merc With the Mouth were celebrating the first anniversary of Deadpool's theatrical release. Star and producer Ryan Reynolds celebrated the occasion with a new social media post, featuring a hilarious image that he put together, which follows the tradition that the first year anniversary gift should be paper. Of course, the actor took this anniversary to a whole new level with a hilarious image of Deadpool's own toilet paper. Here's what the actor had to say on social media below.
"One year ago today, we released Deadpool. And the gift for a one year anniversary, is of course, paper."
Ryan Reynolds sent out this new image on Instagram yesterday, which features an image of his title character, wearing the two katana swords on his back, which now serve as toilet paper holders. This »
It’s undeniable that prequel comics that tie into franchises in other media are steadily becoming a bigger deal. Case in point, a still young 2017 has already seen the likes of 24: Legacy and Riverdale penciled in to get that very treatment. And, much like those two, the same could be said for The Great Wall: Last Survivor, the subject of today’s review.
Set sixty years before the events depicted in The Great Wall, the upcoming major motion picture starring Matt Damon and Willem Dafoe, The Last Survivor chronicles the journey of a young man named Bao, seamlessly blending history, mythology and fantasy. So, if you happen to be a fan of any of those topics – or a combination of the three – this is something you may want to give a look.
Speaking of taking a gander at the content, it must be said that artist Gian Fernando »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.
This Past Weekend:
Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb! Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters. »

Keanu Reeves, as much as any actor of his generation, has left a legacy to be proud of. We take a look back at his career.

Often maligned for his lack of range as an actor, or dismissed as merely a vaguely goofy action star, every misstep that Reeves has taken throughout his career has come from an enviable ability to consistently take risks. Despite every effort to pigeonhole him, Keanu Reeves just won’t be told what he can and can’t do.
Born in Beirut to a showgirl and a geologist, Reeves is also a rabid »
It's fairly common for the Honest Trailers team to revisit an original movie, the week before a sequel arrives, to get fans ready for the follow-up. This week's Honest Trailer delves into the 2014 cult classic John Wick, just days before the highly-anticipated sequel John Wick 2 hits theaters on February 10. While these Honest Trailers are often heavy on the negativity, this is one of the few Honest Trailers that doesn't tear the movies to shreds, not too much, at least.
The Screen Junkies crew debuted this new video today, which begins with a tagline that is a bit too long, but still hilarious nonetheless: "They stole his car. They killed his dog. Now he's gonna kill 76 people, who worked for the dad of the kid who killed it." For those who still haven't seen the original John Wick yet, it's a rather thorough description of this throwback action movie, with »
While fans still have to wait nine more days until John Wick 2 hits theaters, the stars all converged on Los Angeles last night for the world premiere of this action-packed sequel. The movie itself already serves as a reunion for Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne after playing Neo and Morpheus in the 1999 blockbuster The Matrix and its subsequent sequels, but the premiere added one more to the reunion. While she doesn't have a role in the film, Carrie-Anne Moss, who played Trinity in The Matrix trilogy, stopped by to support her former co-stars, and round out this Matrix "trinity" of stars, so to speak.
The photo was posted last night on the official Twitter account for John Wick: Chapter 2, showcasing the stars reuniting on the "black carpet." There has already been talk of John Wick 3, with director Chad Stahelski recently teasing that Lionsgate has asked him and writer »
