20th Century Fox’s Deadpool has been rolling out this week, with the film opening in the UK on Wednesday and making its way across the Pond to North America today.
Early tracking had suggested the film would be looking at a $55 million domestic opening weekend, but it looks like the Merc with a Mouth is set to blow that figure out of the water; it pulled in $12.7 million on Thursday previews, a record for an R-rated film, and is looking at around $30 million on Friday, with a four-day weekend of $90 million or more predicted.
Internationally, Deadpool could pull in a further $80 million; it is performing well in all 42 markets, and here in the UK it has given Fox its biggest ever opening day »

To say the least, Cameron Crowe had a rough 2015. The Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire director released Aloha, which on paper had a lot going for it, such as a talented cast, but ultimately was hailed by many critics as one of Crowe’s worst films and a box office disappointment. However, Crowe seems set on having a much more successful 2016 with Roadies, his first original television series in his over three-decade-long career. Showtime has just released the first official trailer for the new show, and it can be seen below…
“Roadies” gives an insider’s look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of “roadies” who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way. The music-infused ensemble comedy series chronicles the rock world through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes and puts the spotlight on the »

Yesterday, HBO released over 20 new photos from Season 6 of Game of Thrones, which led many to wonder when the first full trailer will arrive. Last month, the cable network released brief videos which teased new developments from the four major "houses" in Westeros, but it didn't include any footage. Earlier today, the Game of Thrones Twitter feed announced that the first full trailer will debut Sunday, February 14 at 8:59 Pm Et, just before the series premiere of Vinyl.
The network also released a 10-second trailer preview, which showcases the Hall of Faces in the House of Black and White. Last season, Maisie Williams' Arya Stark journeyed across the sea to the House of Black and White, where she trained to be a "Faceless Man" under the tutelage of Jacquen H'gar (Tom Wlaschiha). Arya's training didn't go so well, though, and at the end of the season, Jacquen H'gar blinded the young girl. »
Deadpool is Ryan Reynolds's raunchiest, wildest, and best movie in a long time, but we haven't even started to talk about the soundtrack. The music selected to accompany Marvel's baddest good guy is a nostalgia gold mine, including Salt-n-Pepa's classic "Shoop" and some well-chosen Wham! from George Michael's '80s group. If you've just seen the movie, you will want to listen to these jams over and over again, and you can do just that here.

Following the release of the final trailer and new posters for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we now have some comments from Jesse Eisenberg, who has been talking to Playboy about his role as the villainous Lex Luthor in the DC Extended Universe ensemble.
“The character is in line with what audiences want to see now, which is a more modern, psychologically realistic concept of Lex Luthor,” states Eisenberg. “His motivations are multifaceted; he has a way of using language that’s specific to the way his mind works; he struggles with interesting philosophical dilemmas like that of the individual having too much power, even if that individual is using that power for good. For instance, Superman has so far been using his powers to do some good, but is it safe to have someone like that walking the streets? It’s great that all of this happens in »

Melissa McCarthy has played unhinged police detectives and vulgar Bridesmaids, budding secret agents and, soon, a badass Ghostbuster. But before donning the proton pack in Paul Feig’s reboot, the fan-favorite actress will step into the shoes of a fast-talking business mogul for The Boss, and today brings forth the decidedly not-safe-for-work first trailer.
For the comedy romp, McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, the wealthiest woman in all of America. She’s a pompous and egotistical loud-mouth – along with some other descriptions from Kathy Bates’ name-calling rant that we’ll refrain from including – though that empire soon comes crashing down when she’s found guilty of insider trading.
Feeling her fame and fortune slip between her fingers, McCarthy’s Darnell devises a plan to reinstate her crumbling empire with the help of Kristen Bell’s friend, and it’s a business scheme that involves, er, selling brownies with the help of »

The new trailer for the third season of “Silicon Valley” has been released, and it’s full of insults, jokes, and one bloody accident. In the teaser, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) tries to become the CEO of his company, Pied Piper. T.J. Miller‘s character Erlich Bachman doesn’t shy away from his usual insults as Richard asks him how he looks in a suit. “If I’m being honest, like a ventriloquist dummy,” he responds. “If I’m lying, you look like shit.” Also Read: 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Premiere Date Set When Richard proposes his deal to an executive, »

During this week’s episode of The 100, it felt quite a bit like an episode of Game of Thrones, and that’s not a bad thing at all. If anything, it’s an appropriate description of just exactly how this episode played out. Sometimes you have to be wary of shows imitating other shows, but this didn’t feel like that, it just gave the feelings that an episode of Thrones might give. The 100 is centered around constantly shifting alliances, power, and morality, and all of that was at play in this week’s episode, aptly titled “Watch The Thrones”.

HBO has released more than a dozen preview (spoilery) images for the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones. The 10 new episodes start airing April 24th.
There are a few interesting tidbits of information in the images. For instance, grown-up Bran is standing for the first time since the first episode, Arya's eye condition wasn't a momentary thing, and Theon and Sansa survived their jump. Not surprisingly, there are no new images of Jon Snow to be found.

Better Call Saul Season Two premieres Monday, February 15th on AMC, but star Bob Odenkirk realizes some potential viewers may need shortcuts to get caught up. During his Thursday appearance on The Tonight Show, the actor challenged himself to summarize the Emmy-nominated first season in one minute – but given the show's complex backstory (and its connections to Breaking Bad), that plan quickly crumbled.
The very first clip from the upcoming mythological fantasy adventure from The Crow director Alex Proyas, Gods of Edypt, has been released, and it gives us a glimpse of a brief confrontation between two of the seemingly “good” deities: Horus , God of The Sky (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and Thoth, God of Knowledge (Chadwick Boseman).
While many fans will be familiar with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s work on Game Of Thrones, less will be aware of Boseman’s previous credentials and have been looking forward to seeing him in action before his debut as Black Panther in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
Unfortunately, things aren’t looking to good for Boseman in Gods of Egypt. To be fair though, this seems like the type of movie in which the entire cast are going to relish a bit of scenery chewing, so it’s probably best not to judge too harshly just yet. »

Kristen Wiig has yet to sit down for an interview with Jimmy Fallon. Technically she has appeared on Late Night and The Tonight Show, but never as herself. After impersonating NBA legend Michael Jordan in 2013, One Direction singer Harry Styles in 2014 and Game of Thrones character Khaleesi in 2015, Wiig decided to try out another character on the late-night circuit Thursday by dressing up as Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. "Peyton Manning, I can't believe…first of all, I can't believe you're still wearing the uniform all week long," Fallon told his guest. "Thank you for doing this. I know this is last minute. You look good." The Zoolander 2 actress, who didn't seem to »

The Flickering Myth Team react…
The final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice landed yesterday – and the Internet exploded in praise. It’s fair to say that the trailers prior to this one (the last one in particular) split audiences with some thinking it was pretty great, while others thinking it was a spoiler filled waste of time. This one, however, seems universally loved.
But what did the writing staff of Flickering Myth think?
Chris Cooper: I’m over the moon with it. The first 45 seconds alone show how well they understand Batman. His movement, his fighting, even his attitude towards Alfred. It’s fantastic. The rest goes by in a bit of a blur, but the look on Superman’s face when he gets blocked. ‘That’s never happened before’! This should have been the trailer released before. We didn’t need the previous one.

From the creators of Max Payne and Alan Wake comes the ambitious new action game Quantum Break. New trailer and PC details within...
Remedy Entertainment, who previously brought us Max Payne and Alan Wake, are expecting big things from its latest third-person action game, Quantum Break. As well as the game itself, there's an accompanying digital TV show that will not only provide additional details about the game's backstory, but also allow players to choose what happens at the end of each episode; it's said that choices made in the game will affect the show and vice versa.
It's the kind of high concept that doesn't come cheap, particularly when you have actors like Game Of Thrones' Aidan Gillen and Lost's Dominic Monaghan in the mix. It's now been confirmed that Quantum Break is coming to PC as well as Xbox One (it was once »
Comic book fans have looooong memories.
On Wednesday morning, the day of Deadpool’s release in the UK, 20th Century Fox green lit the superhero movie’s sequel. The film is tracking high for an opening weekend at the box office and the majority of reviews and fan reactions have been overwhelmingly positive. But, considering Fox’s recent history with announcing sequels before a film is even released, it’s surprising they announced Deadpool 2 so publicly.
Before Fantastic Four bombed at the box office last summer, Fox had already announced it’s X-Verse movie release slate for the next few years – including a sequel to Marvel’s First Family. But then Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four opened. Just a couple of months later, Fox quietly removed Fantastic Four 2 from their schedule.
