Deadpool Sequel’s NSFW Teaser: ‘Wet on Wet’

Deadpool, the “merc with a mouth,” is back, and he’s brought us a very NSFW painting lesson that pays loving tribute to the late Bob Ross more than it teases next summer’s Deadpool sequel.

There’s no way this should work, but Ryan Reynolds forces it to work through sheer commitment to the ludicrous material. He molds this into potty-humor gold.

Now I want to see the untitled Deadpool sequel more than ever! It drops June 1, 2018.

The 13th Doctor Will Sport a Very Doctor-ish Costume!

Alert the Fashion Police! The 13th Doctor has a costume — and it will give her sixth persona’s notorious eyesore a run for its sartorial money!

Now, unlike Colin Baker‘s deliberately offensive multicolored suit, Jodie Whittaker‘s ensemble is not designed to assault the senses and offend the sensibilities — but it will take some getting used to. On the plus side, the newest Doctor’s threads do pay tribute to many of her previous selves and their… uh, questionable tastes.

It appears the newly regenerated Time Lady will be in a nostalgic mood, because the outfit she eventually puts together clearly pays tribute to just about all of her previous selves.

Let’s start with the T-shirt. While reminiscent of the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), its brown tint and colored-stripe pattern it immediately call to mind the endless scarf worn by Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor.

Wanna Drink Wine With Jennifer Lawrence?

Of course you do! Who wouldn’t?

Well, we’re all about to get our chance, thanks to Jennifer Lawrence‘s new partnership with Omaze  benefitting Represent.Us, a non-partisan organization that wants to  “fix America’s broken political system.”

While announcing the opportunity to win the boozy meet-and-greet, JLaw did a bit in which she tried to guess if a quote was from a wine review or a review of one of her movies. Hilarity ensued.

Jennifer Lawrence Is Back in a New Thriller!

After a long absence – has it really been since last December’s Passengers?– Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-winning actress and America’s Sweetheart, is returning to screens this fall in a psychological thriller/horror movie called Mother! (yes, the exclamation point is part of the title).

It’s written and directed by Darren Aronofsky, who did the masterful Black Swan, so we should expect lots of mind games from the script. Let’s take a look at the excellent, intriguing trailer:

My first impression is that the trailer is very tense, aided immeasurably by the music, which I don’t recognize. (This is a major plus, as modern trailers all seem to use the same five or so musical selections; boring.) Is it from the film? I hope so!

The 12th Doctor Will Battle the First Cybermen in His Last Story

If he has to go, then he might as well go out in a blaze of glory, battling his favorite baddies.

I’m talking about Peter Capaldi, who is leaving the title role of DOCTOR WHO at the end of this, the 10th season of the revived series. A lifelong Whovian, Capaldi has long maintained that his favorite monsters were the Cybermen — specifically the original Cybermen, the ones that appeared in First Doctor William Hartnell‘s final story, “The Tenth Planet.” The Cybermen have reappeared many times over the ensuing 50+ years, but they never looked the same again.

The look of those cybernetic refugees from Mondas — Earth’s twin planet which was knocked out of orbit when our moon was formed — was dictated by the budget constraints of the 1966 serial, thus the silver jumpsuits and ski masks.

New ‘Justice League’ Image Totally Fails to Impress

justiceleague-ughWarner Brother released this image to USA Today for its promotional package on “must-see” movies in 2017, and I must say, the gambit totally backfired: This doesn’t make me want to see Justice League. It makes me want to laugh and then feel sorry for DC Comics.

The photo depicts most of the Justice League, DC’s team of superheroes meant to compete on the silver screen with Marvel’s Avengers. Included here are Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) — but the team’s final member, Superman (Henry Cavill), is nowhere to be seen.

That could be because Supes was killed in the abominable Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and producers are trying to keep his resurrection a scret. But I think he’s just hiding because he doesn’t want to be associated with another bloated, self-important turkey that collapses under its own weight.

“[Filming Justice League] was all about the filling-out of this massive comic-book pantheon with the biggest and coolest heroes we could,” director Zack Snyder told the newspaper.

Doug Jones Reveals Secret of Guillermo del Toro’s Next Movie

doug-jonesDoug Jones is one of those actors everyone have seen in big-budget hit movies, but no one has any idea what he looks like. That’s because Jones specializes in full-body creature costumes and motion-capture work. If anyone can be said to rival the great Andy Serkis at portraying animated characters, it’s Jones.

Jones has played everything from the Silver Surfer in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer to Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies to the horned faun in Pan’s Labyrinth. He often features in movies for director Guillermo del Toro, and that is once again the case with The Shape of Water.

Since it’s a del Toro-Jones collaboration, you don’t even need to be told the flick will be weird; but Jones told Collider what it’s about:

It’s not a sci-fi [film], it’s not a genre film, but I am a creature in it. I’m a fish man that’s kind of a one-off. I’m an enigma, nobody knows where I came from; I’m the last of my species so I’m like a natural anomaly. And I’m being studied and tested in a U.S. government facility in 1963, so the Russian Cold War is on, the race for space is on, so there’s all that backdrop and that undercurrent. I’m being tested for how can they use me for advantages in military or space travel, or my technology—can we make this usable for humans? So they’re trying to keep me a secret from the Russians.
