After 20th Century Fox held the initial press screenings for James Mangold’s Logan around the middle of February, it wasn’t long before one Twitter user was quick to reveal that the studio had mysteriously added an additional three minutes to the film’s original runtime. While many began to speculate about the possibility of a post-credits scene which is common for Marvel comic book movie fare, Mangold immediately shut those rumors down leaving each and every one of us clueless as to what could’ve been added to the latest chapter in the Wolverine saga. Well, now we know.

Earlier today, Ryan Reynolds’ official YouTube channel posted a video titled No Good Deed which serves as a bit of a teaser for Deadpool 2 which is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2018. As confirmed by screenwriter Rhett Reese, none of the footage which appears in the short is from the actual movie, as it hasn’t even entered principal photography yet. However, it certainly showcases what kind of shenanigans we can expect from our favorite anti-hero’s next adventure.

In the clip, Wade Wilson can be seen walking down a street with a cheesy 80s love tune blaring through his headphones as he encounters a poor unsuspecting old man being mugged by a thug packing a little bit of heat. “Somebody save me! Is there anybody in this world who can help me, for God’s sake,” the old man screams while Wilson is changing into his Deadpool attire in a phone booth, which has “Nathan Summers, cumming soon” scrawled onto the side of it. Perhaps this is pointing to the possibility of a casting announcement being revealed soon? We can’t say for sure.

By the time Deadpool has finished changing into his signature red spandex and telling Stan Lee to “zip it,” after the comic book writer complimented his suit, the old man who was being mugged had met his unfortunate fate, leaving Deadpool to ponder about “why the f*ck there’s a phone booth on a street corner” and having an entire cup of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia to himself.

Final trailer for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ teases a bittersweet ending to a beloved saga

Rise of Skywalker
LUCASFILM LTD.

Disney has released the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the latest chapter in the intergalactic franchise from writer-director J.J. Abrams that will — supposedly — mark the conclusion of the long-running Skywalker saga that began in 1977.

The Rise of Skywalker will see the return of much of the principal cast, including Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Anthony Daniels, as well as the late Carrie Fisher, who will appear in the film by way of unused footage from the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“You can’t recast that part and you can’t suddenly have her disappear,” Abrams said at the Star Wars Celebration event in April. “The weird miracle of having a number of scenes from The Force Awakens that had got unused, looking at those scenes and starting to understand that there was actually a way to use those scenes and continue her story so that it would be her. The idea of having a CG character was off the table.”

The film will also see Ian McDiarmid reprise his role as the villainous Emperor Palpatine and Billy Dee Williams as the iconic scoundrel Lando Calrissian.

“In addition to being the end of three trilogies, it also has to work as its own movie,” Abrams also said. “It’s about this new generation and what they’ve inherited the light and the dark, and asking the question as they face the greatest evil, are they prepared? Are they ready?”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens December 20.

Columbia Pictures confirmed Friday that it has acquired the rights to an untitled horror project that is set to be directed and produced by Sam Raimi, making it the genre maestro’s first directorial effort on a horror film 2009’s Drag Me to Hell.

“I am thrilled to be reunited with Columbia Pictures and re-teaming with Sanford [Panitch] and Ange [Giannetti],” Raimi said in a statement. “I have been a fan of Shannon and Swift and we have found the perfect adventure to share with the world.”

While details about the project are being kept tightly under wraps, the film — which was written by Mark Swift and Damian Shannon, based on an original idea they conceived — is comparable to Misery and Cast Away in terms of its tone, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Raimi and Zainab Azizi are producing the film via their Raimi Productions label, while Giannetti is overseeing the production for Columbia Pictures, which moved quickly to acquire the rights to the project before other studios even had a chance to make a bid on it.

Production on the film is expected to get underway in 2020.
