Cool Runnings (1993)
The Meg opens on the Manta One, a futuristic research station at sea. A billionaire (Rainn Wilson) is visiting his pet project to observe a groundbreaking expedition. Scientists have discovered a hidden world under the ocean floor. Their exuberant exploration quickly turns to horror. A gigantic creature has attacked and trapped their submersible. The extreme depth of the rescue is unparalleled. Only one man,
Not only does Deadpool mention Superman, Green Lantern and Batman, but he asks Cable: “You’re so dark — are you sure you’re not from the DC Universe?”
Deadpool mentions Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thanos and Black Panther — in some form. Deadpool also tells a character, “The Sun is Getting Low,” a clear reference to The Hulk.
In the opening credits, director David Leitch is described as “one of the guys who killed the dog in ‘John Wick.'” Leitch directed several scenes in the Keanu Reeves film.
In a state of utter sadness, Wade Wilson compares “Frozen” to Barbra Streisand’s 1983 film “Yentl.”
“Fox & Friends”
In the movie, Deadpool uses “Fox & Friends” as an insult.
Colossus does something that reminds the rest of the X-Force gang of the movie “RoboCop.”
In the movie, the Merc with the Mouth makes a joke

If you enjoy watching anything with sharks in it and anything that involves Jason Statham kicking ass, I don't see how you're not going to love this!
The movie was directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure, Cool Runnings) and it also stars Jessica McNamee, Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, and Robert Taylor. Here's the synopsis:
A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation
Ahead of an August release, the first trailer has now arrived which shows off its popcorn-munching, cheeky tone, courtesy of director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure, Cool Runnings). Seemingly fully self-aware that those buying a ticket want to see Statham destory some sharks, hopefully it’ll be a fun late summer offering. Also starring Jessica McNamee, Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, and Robert Taylor, see the trailer and poster below.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “Cool Runnings”
Even as viewership declines for such major live events in the face of so much competition, and broadcast TV struggles to maintain relevancy, NBC will come out of February with a healthy ratings boost from the Super Bowl and Olympics. As a matter of fact, NBC is guaranteed a season-long ratings win this year among adults 18-49 and total viewers thanks to both events, in addition to the network’s NFL football coverage and hit series like “This Is Us” and “The Voice.”
“I think we will be No. 1 in both the demo and in total viewers next year,
Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga are expected to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, next year as the first-ever African representatives — male or female — to qualify for the Winter Games in the sport of bobsled.
“I basically got into the sport of bobsledding in 2015 after a little bit of a hiatus from athletics,” Adigun tells People, noting that the International Bobsled and Skeleton Federation, the governing body for the sport, was looking to grow
But for those interested in cinematic renditions of stories of grit, determination, and often a metric ton of sequins, the movie world has provided a few choice picks. From the drama of such classics as “Downhill Racer” to the joy of “Cool Runnings” and the wacky happenstance of “I, Tonya,” check out eight solid gold picks for some Olympics-centric binge-watching below (if you can find the time during watching the actual events unfold in the coming weeks).
Margot Robbie recently shared this pic from "exactly a year ago" when she was training for I Tonya
Is Margot Robbie the first actress to ever be nominated playing an Olympic athlete? I legit don't know the answer but I can't think of any others. The only previous Oscar nominated performances that we could think of were men: Will Smith as Muhammad Ali (though the focus there wasn't on the Olympics) and Mark Ruffalo as David Schultz (thanks commenters for this one!)
If you think back over movies that revolved around the Olympics in some way they aren't usually acting showcases (Chariots of Fire) or aren't focused on the Olympians themselves (Munich) or they're films that were either aimed at wide audience crowd pleasing or just didn't connect with awards voters (The Cutting Edge, Personal Best, Running Brave, Prefontaine, Eddie the Eagle, Cool Runnings) or they're documentaries
“The film embodies a statement made by Jerry Stahl, writer of Permanent Midnight: a good friend who is a junkie will do all of your drugs and then spend the day helping you look for them,” John Fink said in our Tribeca Film Festival review. “A Thousand Junkies
Cool Runnings (1993) – BBC 1 – 23rd December – 1:15 Pm
It’s important to lower yourself slowly into Christmas TV and whilst Cool Runnings is not your archetypal Christmas film, the heart-warming tale of a Jamaican bobsleigh team making it to the Winter Olympics is a great nostalgic throwback. Whilst the PG comedy may not have people laughing like it did 20 years ago, the overlying themes of teamwork and friendship
Saturday, December 23
Easy to forget that it’s not just Christmas round the corner, but the Winter Olympics too. So to remind us of this fact, the BBC have decided to christen the day with factual comedy Cool Runnings. If snow isn’t your bag, there’s always Despicable Me, Crocodile Dundee and Gladiator to get you going.
Top of the Tree: Crocodile Dundee (1986) C4, 6.10pm – Paul Hogan scored one of the most impressive debuts in history with this comedy gem.
Sports movies are a dime a dozen these days, but not all of them are able to claim the highly-coveted title of true stories. Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan.
There are plenty of other sports movies based on true stories that we love, and we’ve made a list to put all of our faves in one place. A wide variety of sports are represented here, with movies about baseball,
