Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the past ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and contains almost all of the heros of the past eighteen films. I say almost, because one of the original Avengers is not even present in Infinity War. You know who I’m talking about. Despite teases in the marketing and…

Can ‘Infinity War’ Pass $2BN?

Cannes 2018: And The Winners Are

A few days ago the 2018 Cannes Film Festival came to a conclusion, with their awards ceremony. Much speculation was centered on how the jury this year, led by Cate Blanchett, would choose to hand out the prizes. Would they try to make a political statement?

Deadpool 2: Brolin & Reynolds – Who Would Have Known? – ★★★★☆

Most superhero/comic-book film sequels are never as good as the original. Just look at the relationship between the first two Avengers films, The Matrix Trilogy, and the Iron Man franchise, but occasionally, there are exceptions: Welcome to Deadpool 2. The film immediately opens with the humour everyone wanted. Deadpool is mourning Wolverine. And from here I can’t say anything that won’t…

‘Deadpool 2’ Now At $135M Opening Weekend

Fox’s Deadpool 2 is looking like it will just be ahead of the original’s $132M opening weekend, but only just. Taking a awesome $18.6M in previews and $52M Friday, giving it a opening three-day definitely above $130M. Now this isn’t a terrible result, a opening weekend below $140M despite the hope for the film; but remember, sequel…
