The Marvel Comics film from 20th Century Fox debuted in North American with $125 million in 4,349 locations. That wasn’t enough to match the debut of its predecessor, 2016’s “Deadpool,” which had the biggest opening ever for an R-rated film with $132.4 million. The Ryan Reynolds-starrer bowed overseas with $176 million for a global weekend total of $301 million.
Although it debuted under estimates, “Deadpool 2’s” launch was nothing to complain about. It still secured the second-best opening for an R-rated film, as well as the third-biggest debut of the year behind Marvel blockbusters “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Black Panther.” It also secured Fox its second-highest opening weekend in history.
The sequel is still boasting a strong critical consensus, with an 84% Rotten Tomatoes rating and an A CinemaScore.

Host Minhaj opened the evening by noting the odd contrast of handing out awards for excellence in TV and digital media at a venue in the heart of the financial district, Cipriani Wall Street.
“This is the wokest award show in the least woke location,” Minhaj joked. “Are the Pulitzers being handed out at Mar-a-Lago?” Later in the ceremony, Minhaj had a zinger for Vice President Mike Pence. He noted that most people were unsettled by the themes in one of 2017’s honorees, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “unless of course you’re the Vice President, and then this show is the breakout comedy of the year.”
Leading out of that, Agents of Shield‘s season finale (1.9 mil/0.5, TVLine reader grade “B+”) dipped in audience while flat in the demo. (S.H.I.E.L.D. returns in Summer 2019, with a shortened Season 6.)

Following a housewife who goes into stand-up after her marriage crumbles, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” has earned rave reviews, as well as a pair of Golden Globes for Best TV Series — Musical or Comedy and Best Actress for Rachel Brosnahan’s performance as the title character.

Ryan Reynold’s “Deadpool 2” bowed internationally with $176 million — and that’s without a boost from China. Combined with its $125 million domestic debut, the superhero sequel secured a global weekend total of $301 million.
It marked the best overseas opening of all time for Fox International. The previous record was set by “X-Men: Days of the Future Past” with $174 million, including $38 million from China. It also surpassed “Logan” ($160 million) as the biggest international opening for an R-rated title.

"Here's a refresher: I was the first female on a Republican presidential ticket and now I get paid to tweet for Bass Pro Shops," Fey's Palin, one of SNL's most savage political impersonations, said.

Loeb appeared at Netflix’s Fysee panel event, moderated by Variety’s own executive editor of TV, Debra Birnbaum, in honor of the second season of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones.” Rachael Taylor, who plays Jessica’s best friend-cum-sister Trish Walker, praised how the series “always puts character first while diving into all these different social issues. It’s so unexpected for a genre show but such a joy for us to play.
The creator/executive producer of “Mrs. Maisel” prodded Amazon executives about a pickup on Saturday night as she accepted a Peabody Award for her 1950s-set dramedy about an Upper West Side housewife who ventures into standup comedy after her picture-perfect marriage falls apart.
“You’re going to give it to us because we’re bringing home the fancy thing, right?” Sherman-Palladino said of the Peabody win for the show’s freshman season.

Spike Lee has made three extraordinary films that toss incendiary racial firecrackers: the classic “Do the Right Thing” (1989), the majestic “Malcolm X” (1992), and the wild (and insanely underrated) black-face satire “Bamboozled” (2000). Here, for the first time since then, he creates a scalding zeitgeist spectacle of American bigotry laid bare. Set in Colorado Springs in the early ’70s,
That means that the Ryan Reynolds sequel will fall just short of the $132 million made by the first “Deadpool” two years ago, despite setting a new opening day record for R-rated films with $53 million. After that Friday result, industry estimates were projecting a 15 percent drop for Saturday, but the Saturday returns ended up being more than 20 percent down.
But Fox won’t cry over spilled milk — or perhaps in this antihero’s case, spilled blood — as “Deadpool 2” joins its predecessor as the only films released by the studio since 2011 to score openings above $100 million. With “DP2” making $301 million on 4,349 screens its opening weekend, it is the second-biggest launch and

But this year, festival director Thierry Fremaux found himself in a perfect storm. With a shrinking smart-film market that offers narrow margins of error, a Cannes acceptance can inspire equal measures of pride and terror. Fremaux probably should have changed the timing for critics’ screenings years ago, before so many festival regulars — from Canadian enfant terrible Xavier Dolan to lauded French auteurs Jacques Audiard and Olivier Assayas — opted out of attending in favor of the less-risky, Oscar-friendly fall festival circuit.
“Cannes can be brutal if you don’t get the right reception,
The following is a spoiler-intensive conversation about Deadpool 2 — the new R-rated superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds as a sassy, fourth-wall-breaking, self-healing potty-mouth mutant. It's the latest installment of a monthly series of chats between between Eisner Award nominee Alex de Campi and Heat Vision contributor Simon Abrams.
The David Leitch-directed sequel includes Deadpool newcomers Josh Brolin as Cable, a gruff military mutant from the future; Julian Dennison as Russell, the teen mutant Cable is out to kill; and Zazie Beetz as the ultra lucky Domino.
