Deadpool’s Trailer For A Trailer

deadpoolphotos2

The official Red Band Deadpool trailer is set to debut tomorrow, but ahead of its release, the Merc with a Mouth has released a trailer for his own trailer. Tune in here tomorrow for the full trailer after it premieres on “Conan”!

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool 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.

Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character alongside T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character. Reynolds has also expressed a desire that Hugh Jackman might cameo as Wolverine, though it remains unconfirmed as to whether or not he will actually appear.

Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Confirmed to be rated R, Deadpool is scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.

The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki Blu-Ray Set Due On November 17, 2015

Miyazaki1

Due out exclusively from Amazon on November 17, 2015 The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki contains each of the Visionary’s eleven feature films: Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises.

But the highlight for those who already own all of these films on Blu-ray will be the set’s bonus features, including Yuki no Taiyo (Yuki’s Sun) — a 1972 television pilot based on a manga by Tetsuya Chiba that was directed, storyboarded and animated by Hayao Miyazaki. The set also contains three episodes (26, 27, and 41) of the 1972 anime series Akado Suzunosuk (Little Samurai), featuring storyboards by the filmmaker. Fans will also get the uncut version of Miyazaki’s Retirement Press Conference, which was thankfully not the final page in his career. The whole package is rounded off with a book featuring The Great Dichotomy: Looking at the Works of Hayao Miyazaki by Tomohiro Machiyama, which “explores the themes and techniques of this revered Japanese filmmaker, and selected text from Hayao Miyazaki’s initial notes and creative proposals for the production of each film.”

An Infographic Mapping Out Over 120 Fictional U.S. Businesses Found Within the Marvel Universe

Mapping Marvel Businesses is a detailed infographic by the creative team at Empire Flippers that maps out over 120 of the fictional U.S. businesses found within the Marvel Universe.

Other than the slightly annoying issue of having super villains constantly trying to destroy humanity, how cool would it be live in the Marvel Universe? Not only would superpowers be real, but there would still be awesome places to shop, eat, and have some fun.

Marvel has done an incredible job creating a vast, realistic and relatable world for us. And the minutely detailed commercial segment is no different. If you’re a comic book buff, you’ve probably heard of many of these companies and establishments, but do you know where they are located?

MONDO To Release Vacation Poster By Andrew Kolb On July 30, 2015

Tomorrow MONDO will release a poster for National Lampoon’s Vacation by Andrew Kolb.

Here’s a note from Andrew about the print:

“Whoa, where to even begin? Before the crew brought me the project, I’d only seen the film a half dozen times, but thought I knew it pretty well. Wrong. After watching it again – taking notes, rewinding, and jotting down ideas the whole time – I realized just how brilliantly paced the whole thing is. In working through concepts (maps, postcards, etc.), the goal was to make something as expansive as a film about a road trip deserves, while also literally packing in as many references as possible.”

Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This poster will be available online at a random time on Thursday, July 30th.

National Lampoon’s Vacation by Andrew Kolb. 18″x24″ screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 200. $40
