A new trailer for the upcoming 20th Century Fox movie LOGAN dropped today. Check it out below :
In an effort to cut costs and reorganize a large swath of its workforce, 21st Century Fox is looking to reduce staff overhead by $250 million in the coming fiscal year that begins in July. The media giant is initiating voluntary buyout program for U.S. employees at the Fox Networks Group and 20th Century Fox film studio.
Following the trailers debut on Conan , 20th Century Fox have released the trailer online.
Based on the Marvel Comic Deadpool ( sort of ) the movie tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
From what i know, Wade Wilson was dying of cancer, and actually volunteered to be a part of these experiments. And long before all that he worked as an assassin. After the Deadpool experiments he continued to work for Weapon X until he was kicked out for killing a teammate…….. But we all know FOX doesn’t give a shit about the comics. Remember Wolverine : Origins? I do, which is why i will not pay a dime to see this, or any other FOX movies. EVER
Ryan Reynolds ( sadly ) stars as the title character alongside T.J. Miller , Gina Carano , Brianna Hildebrand , Morena Baccarin and Ed Skrein . The film will also feature the mutant Colossus for no gawd damn reason at all , though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character because who the fuck is he anyway. Instead Andre Tricoteux will provide the motion capture for Colossus
Tim Miller is set to direct the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool is currently scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016. Which means I will be seeing it for free about 3 months after that when a dvd version comes online.
According to my non existent sources , the negotiations between Tatum and the studio did hit a snag late last month, but there was never any real danger of it not moving forward. Fox are desperate to make their Marvel movies work and Channing used that to get the money he wanted. Its being said now that Channings commitment to this role could possibly last more than a decade, much like how Hugh Jackman has appeared in many X-Men and solo films as Wolverine. Lets just hope they don´t rape the Gambit character like they i with Wolverine .
No one can fault Channing for taking advantage of FOXs stupidity. They paraded him out at Comic Con , and even took official photos of him with the rest of the X-Men cast. All before he had signed on officially. They made it easy for him to make a play for more money. Fuck FOX for being as stupid as they are.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt will direct Gambit. Josh Zemuter wrote the script, based on a treatment by Chris Claremont. Tatum, Reid Carolin, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg are producing.
The film is planned to start shooting in October for an October 7, 2016 release. The movie will follow X-Men spinoff Deadpool on February 15, 2016 and X-Men: Ivan Ooze on May 27, 2016.
The news comes from the man himself, via something called Instagram? Is that a thing ?
He posted a series of concept art designs for a new film in the 20th Century Fox’s Alien franchise way back when, and although the filmmaker admitted that the designs were unofficial, he hinted that he’d be more than happy to take on such a project. And now it looks like the studio is on board with the idea. 20th Century Fox has confirmed the news, clarifying that this is, indeed, a sequel to the original Alien franchise and not the Prometheus sequel currently set for release March 4, 2016.
Sigourney Weaver is likely to return as Ellen Ripley. The two are currently finishing up on Blomkamps latest film Chappie.
That last image of Ripley with an alien head, or whatever is only image i really dislike.
My hope is that Blomkamp is making his own continuation of the events after Cameron’s ALIENS. I liked Alien3 but thought the fourth film was totally screwed up on all levels. And according to this quote by the director, I think that may be his idea too .
“Alien and Aliens are probably my favorite films so was I was like, ‘Sh*t, I wouldn’t mind messing around in that world for a bit’ so I just sort of self-funded the artists to work on the artwork. I did way more artwork than I released, probably ten times more and did a lot of writing. I have a pretty cool film just in case it happens.”
I hope Michael Biehn is available ………..
