The Merc with a Mouth kicked off the 2016 superhero season this week as 20th Century Fox unleashed Deadpool into cinemas around the world (well, not China, where it has been banned) and you can take a look at Oliver Davis’ ★★★★ review here and Robert Kojder’s ★★★★★ review here. Defying box office predictions of a $55 million domestic opening weekend, the film pulled in $12.7 million on Thursday previews in the States, a record for an R-rated film, and is looking at a four-day North American weekend of upwards of $90 million; here in the UK, Deadpool gave Fox its biggest ever »

Deadpool looking at $170 million plus global opening weekend

12 February 2016 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.

Deadpool has a shot of setting more February records, with Fifty Shades of Grey currently holding the opening day ($30.28 million), three-day ($85.2 million) and four-day ($93 million) records.

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 »

Box Office: ‘Deadpool’ Shoots Up $14 Million-Plus Overseas

11 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Deadpool” is already off to a killer start at the foreign box office.

The very R-rated comic book adaptation has sliced up more than $14 million overseas after debuting in a handful of international markets beginning on Tuesday. That number will likely get higher as Thursday results continue to trickle in from around the globe. “Deadpool” will play in roughly 70 markets over the weekend.

It premieres domestically on Thursday and is expected to dominate the U.S. box office. Analysts project the film will earn north of $60 million over President’s Day Weekend.

Among the notable foreign results, “Deadpool” racked up $3.4 million in the United Kingdom, marking the fifth-highest grossing opening day for a Marvel film; made $2.1 million in Australia to take the top spot in the market; and generated $1.8 million in France, outpacing “X-Men: Days of Future Past’s” debut.

Ryan Reynolds stars in the film as the title character, »

Updated: 'Deadpool' Targets #1 Opening Over 'How to Be Single' & 'Zoolander 2'

11 February 2016 12:48 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's President's Day weekend, and last year it was the R-rated Fifty Shades of Grey dominating all things box office with a record-smashing $85.1 million opening that bumped up to $93 million for the four-day. This weekend brings a different kind of R-rated heat to the box office in the form of the superhero feature Deadpool, which won't likely top Fifty Shades' record, but that doesn't mean it isn't looking to perform in a big way. Additional new releases include the romantic comedy How to be Single and the fifteen-years later sequel, Zoolander 2, both of which will battle for a distant second. Arriving in a big way this weekend, Fox's Deadpool will hit 3,558 theaters with its sights set on settling among the top ranks of R-rated comic book adaptation opening weekends. The list is currently topped by 2007's 300 with $70.8 million, followed by 2009's Watchmen with $55.2 million. The film is looking at »

The X-Men Movies Ranked!

11 February 2016 8:50 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Superhero movies are all the rage these days, with endless sequels, spinoffs and team-ups hitting the screen seemingly every month. An argument can be made that the comic-book movie craze can be traced back to 2000 when director Bryan Singer’s X-Men became a box-office smash, raking in just under $300 million worldwide.

There were huge, blockbuster comic book movies before that, but it became apparent with the success of X-Men that superheroes could be profitable for studios. Since then, there have been six more entries in the X-Men universe, all being met with varying box office and critical reception.

With Deadpool now in theaters, we thought it would be the perfect time to look back at the X-Men universe. Here are all seven films based on Marvel’s mutants ranked:

  7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Some might (luckily) forget, but this is actually the first time the movie going audience was introduced to the character of Deadpool. »

Deadpool: 9 spoiler-y questions about the movie answered

10 February 2016 10:27 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

With spoilers, we look at the questions raised and left behind by the new Deadpool movie...

In contrast to Marvel Studios’ tightly-wound movies, Fox’s X-Men franchise likes to play fast and loose with its material. What that means is that if you’ve just seen Deadpool, you might have a few questions about it. And we’ve tried to guess what they might be so that we can answer them in advance.

Fair warning, though: This is very spoilery. For both the comics and the movie. Only scroll past the image if you’re willing to have plot points explained to you rather than discover them yourself.

1. How does this movie connect to the continuity of his previous appearance?

The short version to this question is that it doesn’t. In fact, you could easily argue that Deadpool is taking place on its own island of continuity. »

Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool’s place in the X-Men timeline, and the chances of an X-Force movie

9 February 2016 3:14 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Deadpool set to open in the UK tomorrow and in the States on Friday, Ryan Reynolds is out on the press tour for the film, and during an interview with Filmstarts, the actor was asked about trivia on IMDb claiming that the film’s incarnation of the Merc with a Mouth differs from X-Men Origins: Wolverine due to the reset of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“I really don’t think this has anything to do with Days of Future Past or its timeline,” replied Reynolds. “If it were Deadpool, he could tell Days of Future Past to take its timeline and go fuck itself. We make fun of the timelines in the movie but no, Deadpool is not affected by that at all. Deadpool I think is just his own thing, his own universe and anytime the other X-Men interact with Deadpool in his universe they do so »

Why Deadpool Decided To Ignore The X-Men Movie Timeline

9 February 2016 1:54 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tim Miller.s Deadpool is definitely set within the universe created by the larger X-Men franchise, but it doesn.t exactly pay a ton of attention to continuity. The version of Colossus that.s featured is entirely different than the one played by Daniel Cudmore in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past; and despite being played by the same actor (Ryan Reynolds), the Wade Wilson character is entirely different than the one featured in the 1980s-set X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Fans may question this decision, but writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have some pretty solid excuses for it: their desire to fix mistakes of the franchise.s past, and create a film entirely representative of its insane titular lead. I had the pleasure of chatting with Reese and Wernick about all things Deadpool late last week, and it was right at the top »

10 Possibilities For Fox’s Next X-Men Movie

9 February 2016 9:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

On May 27th this year, the next instalment in the X-Men saga will be released in cinemas worldwide – X-Men: Apocalypse. The stage is set for Fox’s not-as-big-as-Marvel superhero franchise to make probably its biggest box office footprint yet.

A few weeks ago, however, word was going around that the X-Men production juggernaut would be reassembling in Montreal in the middle of this year to begin putting the bare bones for the next X-Men movie together. They’re not resting on their laurels, here. The Fantastic Four reboot has failed, so the mutants are all Fox has left to play with…

Scuttlebutt (like gossip with the mutant x-gene) says that the Wolverine movie currently in pre-production will be Hugh Jackman’s last portrayal of the character, and with X-Men: Days Of Future Past having revised the timeline a wee bit (although the full extent of those revisions »

One 'X-Men: Apocalypse' actor worked almost two months for 3 minutes of footage

9 February 2016 8:19 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When X-Men: Days of Future Past hit theaters, most people were pretty impressed with Quicksilver’s scene-stealing powers. Or more specifically, they were impressed with the camera work and intense editing needed to make audiences feel like Quicksilver was a dude living amongst people trapped in amber. Director Bryan Singer knew he’d have to step it up a notch for X-Men: Apocalypse. Luckily, actor Evan Peters was game. The results? Peters ended up working longer than any other actor on the film. One 3 minute sequence alone took a month and a half, according to Singer. As the man says, you can have it fast or you can have it cute. You can’t have both.     You can have fast or cute. Thank you @20thcenturyfox marketing #marcweinstock #davesingh #elyorias and the team for getting us on #superbowl50 #nfl #fox#football #XMen #xmenapocalypse Fyi this scene with #evanpeters as #quicksilver took »

Reynolds, Singer Talk X-Force, Quicksilver

9 February 2016 5:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Deadpool" actor Ryan Reynolds spoke with German outlet Filmstarts this week about the potential appearance of his titular character in the "X-Men" franchise moving forward. Reynolds indicates there's plenty of opportunity for more "X-Men" crossover elements if further "Deadpool" sequels take place:

"There's so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe … In the future, if we're doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we're really going to explore the X-Men a lot. We'll see. And maybe X-Force - X-Force is my priority. I really want to get that in."

The current "X-Force" movie remains stuck in development hell despite Jeff Wadlow having been hired to pen the script two years ago. Reynolds has previously teased the possibility of including Cable in a "Deadpool" sequel.

In related news, "X-Men: Apocalypse" director Bryan Singer has posted an Instagram post from the sequence in the upcoming film that features speedster Quicksilver (Evan Peters »

21st Century Fox Earnings: Cable Gains Can’t Lift Weaker Film Results

8 February 2016 1:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Lackluster home entertainment results, a weaker film slate and difficult foreign exchange rates pushed revenues and profits at 21st Century Fox down during the media conglomerate’s most recent fiscal quarter.

Revenues hit $7.38 billion, down 1% from the prior year, missing analysts expectations. Earnings per share topped off at 44 cents compared to 53 cents per share in the year-ago period, which was roughly in line with projections.

Wall Street was expecting earnings of 44 cents a share and $7.51 billion in revenue. It was a quarter that saw the return of Fox’s television hit “Empire,” the release of Ridley Scott’s space epic “The Martian” and several tussles between Fox News and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. There’s also been some preemptive belt-tightening. Last week, word leaked that the media conglomerate is initiating a voluntary buyout program as it looks to reduce staff overhead by $250 million in the coming fiscal year. »
