As we’ve reported earlier, Deadpool is absolutely demolishing records at the Box Office. In addition to having the highest opening day for an R-rated movie, Deadpool is additionally set to have one of the biggest opening weekends for a superhero movie in general. Tom Rothman must be having one hell of a temper tantrum. More importantly, it got an A on Cinemascore, insuring that it won’t be as front-loaded as some people expected. It’s pretty clear that audiences ate up every scene like a freshly-made chimichanga, and why shouldn’t they? There are so many memorable moments to chose from in the Merc with a Mouth’s big movie that it’s hard to keep track of all of them. So here are some of our favorite scenes. (more…)
After years of speculation, poorly-written fanfiction, and tales of woe regarding the disasterrific implications of casting Ryan Reynolds in the role of everyone’s favorite meta-superhuman, Deadpool moves closer and closer to finally being a thing. The staff here at Nerdbastards is torn: we’re excited over the studio’s decision to keep the core of the movie as deep and down and dirty as possible, but we’re also leery of the move of the writing team pulling their punches at the last second and easing up for a more “all-ages” film. Hope not!
In keeping with his Twitter tradition, Bryan Singer is breaking more casting news about his next film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. The picture he posted today shows a wall full of headshots of the people he’s cast so far. Now you may recognize many of the faces, but there are a couple of faces on the wall that offer some new clues about who else might be part of the team in the upcoming film.
First, you may recognize the semi-familiar face of Daniel Cudmore, who played Colossus in both X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. It looks like he’ll be back for Days, which, with the exception of Kelsey Grammer, more or less rounds out the X-Men team that was seen at the end of The Last Stand.
There are also two new faces on the wall. One belongs to Boo Boo Stewart, but no word on who he’s going to play. The second new face is Fan Bingbing, a Chinese actress who’s starred in films like Battle of the Warriors and Double Xposure. Bingbing is reported to be playing Blink, a teleporting mutant who was introduced in “The Phalanx Covenant” storyline in the X-Men titles, but became popular as a regular in the “Age of Apocalypse” series.
New and returning actors for Days of Future Past include: Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy and Halle Berry.
