First Red Band (NSFW) Trailer for ‘Deadpool’

I’ll be the first to admit that I do not like Marvel’s “Merc with a Mouth,” Deadpool. And I am… let’s say, not the president of Ryan Reynolds‘ fan club. I have next to no interest in the production of the Deadpool movie. But… now there’s this funny, violent trailer, and… well… just watch it.

I can’t explain it, but the movie appears… watchable. There may even be a few *shudder* funny bits. This is shaking my worldview.I guess I can console myself by pointing out has Morena Baccarin and Colossus in it…

Luckily I have until February to reconcile myself with a guilty urge to actually pay to see a Ryan Reynolds Deadpool movie.

Michael Keaton is Back — as Birdman?

He may never have entirely gone away, Michael Keaton is coming back in a big — and kinda sorta autobiographical — way with a quirky new movie called  Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) , about an actor trying to escape the prison of typecasting after playing a superhero.

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, 21 Grams), Birdman… follows a actor who wants to put his superhero career behind him by mounting a Broadway play, but no one believes in his talent — not even his family. Does he believe in himself?

The film also stars Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts.

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) opens Oct. 17. Check out the film’s official site.
