‘FANTASTIC FOUR’ MUSCLES IN ON ‘MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5′08/04/15 @ 11:38 pm EST
After getting a standing ovation at Comic-Con in July, the first trailer for Ryan Reynolds “X-Men” spinoff “Deadpool” has finally been released online. The trailer premiering on “Conan” Tuesday.The R-rated Fox superhero movie directed by Tim Miller is due in theaters Feb. 12, 2016, and the trailer features plenty of action and f-bombs.
The trailer — equally emotional and comical — shows the Reynolds’ Wade Wilson making the difficult decision to take on superpowers in order to cure the cancer in his liver, lungs, prostate and brain (“all things I can live without,” he says),
“For one I think it’s an absolute miracle that a studio let us make ‘Deadpool’ let alone a rated-R ‘Deadpool,’” Reynolds told the Comic-Con audience of Fox’s willingness to greenlight the film.
The actor appeared as a version of the character in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

IT'S CLOBBERING TIME IN LATEST "FANTASTIC FOUR" TV SPOTS08/04/15 @ 8:31 pm EST
Mr. Fantastic, the Thing, Invisible Woman and the Human Torch are back, although the heroic quartet looks a lot different than they did when they took on the Silver Surfer eight years ago.
The Stan Lee and Jack Kirby characters are following in the footsteps of Spider-Man and the Hulk and getting a big screen reboot, intended to make the superhero team younger, fresher and hipper. Fox’s “Fantastic Four” should debut to roughly $45 million, a little shy of the $56.1 million that 2005’s “Fantastic Four” brought in during its opening. Fox says it will be happy with anything with a four in front of it.
Though a commercial success, the mid-aughts version was critically lambasted. In the talent department, this re-imagining appears to have the edge, bringing in a hot cast of up-and-coming actors like Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Michael B. Jordan, and matching them with Josh Trank, a young director who made a stir with the low-budget “Chronicle.”
Trank gets a much bigger canvas this time. “Fantastic Four” carries a $120 million production budget and will hit 3,961 theaters.I
t’s shaping up to be a fiercely competitive weekend at the multiplexes. Meryl Streep will try to rein in older moviegoers with “Ricki and the Flash,” a dramedy about an aging rock star that Sony will release in 1,600 locations. The film cost $18 million to produce, and should bring in $6 million in its initial weekend. The hope is that this is a film that will mirror
“The Hundred Foot Journey” or Streep’s “Hope Springs,” starting modestly, but bringing in audiences over subsequent weeks. Interest is particularly high, because “Ricki and the Flash” is the first release from TriStar, the filmmaker-focused label, that Tom Rothman was tasked with reinvigorating before he took the top job at Sony last winter.
Then there’s “The Gift,” a creepy story of high school resentment from STX Entertainment. The newly launched studio is hoping to corner the market on mid-budget thrillers, comedies and dramas that others have abandoned in pursuit of comic book movies. “The Gift” was produced with Blumhouse Productions, the company behind “The Purge” and “Insidious,” and carries a $5 million budget. It should bring in between $6 million and $8 million when it unspools across 2,470 locations.
And finally Lionsgate will field “Shaun the Sheep,” a big screen version of the stop-motion animated television series from “Wallace and Gromit” creators Aardman Animations. The family film debuts on Wednesday and should pull in $10 million over its first five days and $6 million for the weekend. Reviewers love the picture, handing it a 100% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
But the major challenger for “Fantastic Four” comes in the form of last week’s champ, “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.” The espionage franchise has always exhibited impressive durability. They never open to massive numbers, but they play and play. The latest IMF adventure should be no exception, particularly given that critics and audiences seem to have embraced the film, with some media types even proclaiming it a series best. After opening to just shy of $56 million, “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” could pull in $30 million in its sophomore weekend.
Despite all the new releases, the weekend box office will struggle to match the year-ago period when “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” debuted to $65.6 million and “Guardians of the Galaxy” made $42.1 million in its second week. A hot summer is cooling down.

THE CW’S ‘LEGENDS OF TOMORROW’ CASTS CASPER CRUMP AS DC VILLAIN VANDAL SAVAGE08/04/15 @ 4:35 pm EST
Byron Brewer talked toMark Waid aboutJUSTICE INC: THE AVENGER forDynamite comics.BYRON BREWER: Mark, from the beginning you have been very interested in or creating the Avenger’s past. What is it about this character that fascinates you and other writes so much among all the pulps?MARK WAID:
I think it’s that “obscure band that I found” syndrome--that the Avenger is a cool character who’s not nearly as well known as his brethren the Shadow and Doc Savage and the Spider. That makes him feel special to me.BB: Speaking of past, we meet another character – and an instrumental one – in October’s issue #5. Can you give us just a taste of who this is and what the individual meant to Richard Benson? MW:
He’s a film star from the early days of the silver screen who taught Benson the art of disguise. He’s my favorite new character in forever -- a mentor who also becomes a student.BB: Will we be seeing any additions to Justice Inc. in coming issues?MW:
This is it for a bit -- I’d rather concentrate on developing the existing cast.BB: Any guest appearances in the wings from perhaps Doc Savage or the Shadow?MW:
I should call you and we should talk. It’s long been my dream to do an Avenger/Doc Savage crossover where the two heroes swap supporting characters. I’d love to someday write a story featuring the Avenger plus the Fabulous Five, and Doc plus Justice Inc. Dibs!BB: Ha! Already got it copyrighted, my friend! … Now Mark, what would you say is artist Ronilson Freire’s greatest strength on this book?MW:
The character work. The acting. His characters move, and that propels the story.BB: Finally, what is up with the addition of co-writer Christopher Sequeira?MW:
Chris is a terrific Aussie author whom I’ve known for years and years, and we’ve been trying to find something to collaborate on for a while. Turns out the Avenger is one of his favorite characters, too -- so we’re having a blast riffing away!Make sure to check out JUSTICE INC: THE AVENGER from Dynamite!
