The Matrix came out in 1999 before being followed by both The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions in 2003. Said movies didn’t come up with a lot of the distinctive concepts used in them, but they did a great deal to establish them in the popular imagination, not least because it manage to weave them together into a single cohesive whole with a fair amount of skill. Although The Matrix franchise has lost its one-time momentum, its influence can still be seen throughout modern cinema, with an excellent example being bullet time. What Do The Matrix Cast Look Like

Box Office: Deadpool 2 Zooms Past $700M Worldwide, Becomes #3 R-Rated Movie Ever

Wade Wilson is many things to many people – the Merc With a Mouth, a gun-toting wisecrack, World’s Best Lover…you name it.

But now that Deadpool 2 has officially crossed $700 million worldwide, he’s also an incredibly lucrative superhero (anti-hero?). Per Deadline, Fox and David Leitch’s sequel is now the third highest-grossing R-rated movie, well, ever – only Deadpool and The Matrix Reloaded have grossed more across their respective runs.

As of Sunday, Deadpool 2 has earned $304.1M domestic and $400.9M at the international box office, bringing the total to $705M, to be precise – higher than the lifetime tally of New Line’s It reboot, no less. Perhaps most impressive of all is that the sequel’s box office figures don’t include China; much like its R-rated predecessor, Deadpool 2 skipped the Middle Kingdom altogether.

Not that that had much of an effect, really, as the Merc’s

‘Deadpool 2’ Hits $705M Worldwide To Become No. 3 R-Rated Title Ever At Global Box Office

  • Deadline
‘Deadpool 2’ Hits $705M Worldwide To Become No. 3 R-Rated Title Ever At Global Box Office
Fox’s Deadpool 2 crossed the $700 million worldwide mark this weekend, taking the global tally to $705M on the Ryan Reynolds-starrer. That lifts the Merc with the Mouth’s sequel past It to become the No. 3 R-rated movie of all time behind the first Deadpool and The Matrix Reloaded. Through Sunday, the split is $304.1M domestic and $400.9M at the international box office.

Wade Wilson’s alter-ego started strutting his stuff May 15 overseas, setting a record as Fox International’s biggest opening of all time with $176.3M in 81 markets. That topped the studio’s previous record-holder, 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, which bowed to $174M including $38.3M from China. DP2 also nabbed the highest-grossing R-rated debut internationally, overtaking last year’s Logan which opened with $160M and included $49.7M from China.

As with the original Deadpool, DP2 distribution hubs do not include China, making the overseas cume all the more impressive.

Arrowverse Stars Discuss The Difficulties Of Shooting Crossovers

While we’re all gearing up for the next big Arrowverse crossover that’s set to introduce Batwoman, it can be easy to forget how much planning goes into a massive undertaking such as this. I mean, it requires the combined efforts of people working on four separate television shows – Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow – to make it a reality. Each may share some of the same producers, sure, but that makes the task no less difficult.

So, as autumn inches ever closer, there are those who are prepared to not get as much sleep as they’d like, chief among them being actresses such as Candice Patton and Caity Lotz. Now having several of these rodeos behind them, the two ladies spoke of the challenges that accompany filming these crossovers while appearing at a panel hosted by The Young Folks.

Here’s a transcript of that discussion:

‘Solo’ Won’t Break Box-Office Records, But Blame Memorial Day, Not ‘Star Wars’

‘Solo’ Won’t Break Box-Office Records, But Blame Memorial Day, Not ‘Star Wars’
Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens as the sole new wide studio release Memorial Day weekend, a rare occurrence. That wide berth indicates the presumed dominance of the “Star Wars” franchise, a respect that wasn’t granted to its last three titles. And yet for all that deference, “Solo” is tracking at $115 million to $140 million for the three-day weekend. By comparison, the first “Star Wars” spinoff title, “Rogue One,” opened to $161.6 million adjusted in 2016 — and without the benefit of a holiday weekend.

Pre-opening estimates aren’t an exact science, of course; just last weekend, “Deadpool 2” anticipated an opening between $130 million and $150 million. Its $125 million domestic start hinted at a small shortfall after two massive Marvel hits (and a 12 percent drop in total tickets sold from the 2016 original). So will “Solo” follow suit? (As always, all numbers are adjusted to 2018 ticket prices.)

Memorial Day weekend used to represent the start of summer movies.

As expected, Deadpool 2 opened number one this weekend earning an estimated $125 million. Deadpool 2 knocked off three-time box office champ Avengers: Infinity War while pulling in over $300 million worldwide. While the sequel didn’t break box office records or top the 2016 originals $132 million opening weekend, the movie is doing pretty great.

Despite getting bumped from the top spot, Infinity War brought in another $28 million for a current domestic total of $595 million. Avengers has now earned $1.8 billion worldwide.

Book Club opened with a solid $12.5 million. The Paramount produced film was able o carve out some box office money for itself in a crowded superhero weekend.

‘The Matrix Reloaded’ and When Cliffhangers Fail

Spoilers ahead for The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, and Avengers: Infinity War. When I saw The Matrix Reloaded in May 2003, I was blown away. I was all in on the bigger world the Wachowskis were setting up, and spent the summer and fall endlessly theorizing online about what the conclusion, The Matrix Revolutions, could hold. Then the sequel came out, was the cinematic equivalent of a big, wet fart, and my high opinion of Reloaded faded away. The Matrix Reloaded turns 15 this week, and so I revisited it along with Revolutions (you can hear a longer discussion …

Avengers continues to set records and hit milestones. The film has now crossed the $500 million domestic mark in just 15 days. Infinity War has also become the fifth highest-grossing weekend of all-time. With Deadpool 2 dropping next week, it will be interesting to see what Infinity War will continues to make globally.

Charlotte Rampling joins Paul Verhoeven’s religious erotic thriller Blessed Virgin

Deadline is reporting that Oscar-nominated actress Charlotte Rampling has signed on to appear in Blessed Virgin, a religious erotic thriller from director Paul Verhoeven.

Based on Judith C. Brown’s Immodest Acts: The Life Of A Lesbian Nun In Renaissance Italy and scripted by Verhoeven and his Elle co-writer David Birke, Blessed Virgin follows Benedetta Carlini, a novice nun who joins an Italian convent in the late 17th century and begins a love affair with another woman.

Virginie Efira (Elle) is set to portray Carlini, while the cast also includes Lambert Wilson (The Matrix Reloaded) and Daphne Patakia (Djam). Filming is set to get underway later this year, with Pathé producing the film after previously collaborating with Verhoeven on Showgirls and Black Book.

A Look Back At The Matrix Sequels

It’s been fifteen years since the release of The Matrix Reloaded, the sequel to one of the most successful, beloved and influential sci-fi/action films of all time. Eric Bay-Andersen discusses whether time has done anything to improve the less-than-stellar reputation that Reloaded and trilogy-capper Revolutions have received since then…

The first Matrix was a game-changer for me – I was thirteen when it was released, and it came along at a time when I was just starting to view movies as something more than distractions or passing amusements. It’s not an understatement to say it blew my mind – here was a film that was not only exciting, intelligent and off-the-charts cool, but which was also sparking discussions about technology, philosophy and religion amongst the movie-going public and in the media as well. Given my love of the first film, I was as hyped as anyone when the sequels were announced,

Writer Zak Penn ‘Desperately’ Wants To Bring Back ‘The Matrix’

It’s fair to say that “The Matrix” franchise didn’t exactly end on a high note. When “The Matrix” blew minds in 1999, fans were dying to see what The Wachowskis would do next with the franchise. Then “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions” were released and most fans just asked, “Why?”

The truth is, the filmmaking duo should have left “The Matrix” alone after their first film.
