It’s about to get steamy in the kitchen with Deadpool

Following yesterday’s reveal that the first marketing for the Deadpool sequel has Ryan Reynolds’ title character on the cover of Good Housekeeping and the first poster for the film inside its pages, comes word that the magazine has brought the full article, guest-edited by Deadpool himself, online. You can check out the four pages by clicking the following links and you can view the photos in the gallery below!

“Deadpool’s persistence to be in Good Housekeeping was impressive – initially we had no idea who he was, let alone that he was a fan of the magazine,” Jane Francisco, Editor in Chief, Good Housekeeping said in a statement. “But after repeated attempts to ignore his… passion… we came to a compromise. He could appear in one issue, if he promised to stop leaving care packages at our editors’ homes and agreed to maintain a 50-foot distance from the Good Housekeeping offices and our staff.”

“After years of weekly emails and countless carrier pigeons, Good Housekeeping finally returned my calls,” Deadpool added. “And while it’s a dream come true, apparently we have vastly different opinions on the definition of a ‘holiday spread’…”

Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The StrainBaywatch) is attached to play the film’s central villain, which, while unconfirmed, is rumored to be Irish mutant Black Tom Cassidy. Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) have also joined the film in mystery roles.

Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.

Deadpool 2 is set to debut in theaters on June 1, 2018.

Why is Deadpool so Successful?

Most people, including the writers and producers of Deadpool, have been surprised at its incredible level of success. It set a new box office record for an R-rated film, and has had gotten positive reviews from critics and the audience.

Let’s take a look at what, other than basic good writing, acting, and directing, might have accounted for this success.

Pushing The Envelope

Let’s face it, there’s been a glut of superhero movies the past few years. The superheroes have saved cities, countries, continents, planets and universes…it’s hard to ramp up the stakes any more. Which means you have to push the envelope some other way. In this case, with the character. Deadpool, who was already established in the comic books, is ruder and cruder, gorier, and generally more excessive than the protagonists of previous movies in its genre. The script also fools around stylistically, for example by having the character talk directly to the audience.

Trust (Mostly)

It must have been tempting for the producers and studio types to tone down the language and the cruder moments of Deadpool. If it had gone out as a PG-13, it could have attracted a larger audience.

The writers credit producer Simon Kinberg with convincing the studio to be brave and go for the R rating. At the time, Ryan Reynolds told Yahoo!.com, “We don’t get to make it with the budget of most superhero movies, but we get to make it the way we want to make it.”

There’s no doubt that producers feel more comfortable taking a chance when a character already has a life in some other format.

The Backing of a Name Actor

Ryan Reynolds was cast in an attempt to make the film back in 2004 with writer/director David S. Goyer. Reynolds played the role in X-Men Origins, but wanted a stand-alone film with the character closer to his comic book persona. In the intervening years, Reynolds became better known and garnered more clout. He worked with the writers in developing the character and the script.

A Leak

Blur Studio leaked the visual effects footage they shot for the film in 2012, with Reynolds using motion capture. Reynolds said that this footage is what convinced Fox to greenlight the film. Producers and studios are happier when they have something tangible to look at.

Clever Writers

The writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, didn’t want to do an origin story because we’ve had a lot of those lately. However, Ryan Reynolds insisted, so they found a solution.

As Joe Berkowitz writes on Fastcreate.com, “They went structurally non-linear, jumping back and forth between a fully-forged ass-kicking Merc with a mouth and he pre-transformation Wade Wilson.”

In other words, they ditched the typical three-act origins structure. Sure, the story has a beginning, middle, and end, but it’s not presented in that order.

Smart Marketing

The studio took advantage of fandom’s enthusiasm for the character and the film. The director, Tim Miller, and several cast members showed a trailer at 2015’s San Diego Comic-Con. Fox created a “12 Days of Deadpool” campaign, which released new information every day to a different popular website, ending with the release of a new trailer on Christmas Day.

Comics fans, who have often been disappointed in Hollywood’s treatment of their favourite characters, enthusiastically spread the word about Deadpool. Fans can’t necessarily make a film a success, but months of snarky comments on popular social media sites can help sink one.

A Dash of Luck

Many of the elements mentioned above, like the fact that the film went through a very long development process, could equally have led to disaster. With any success, there’s an element of luck, but the more talent and trust is involved, the less need there is to depend on luck.

What Can Writer’s Learn From Deadpool?

There are several possible lessons for filmmakers from Deadpool’s success, but what about writers, since that’s my emphasis?

1: Find an element to set your script apart from the usual. It could be the character, the setting, the situation, the conflict, and/or the style.

2: Don’t censor yourself because you assume producers or others up the line won’t accept your more extreme ideas. They may not, but you never know.

3: If you can’t avoid an obstacle, figure out a way around it, like the Deadpool writers navigated their way around the insistence on providing an origin story.

4: Find allies. This can be an actor, a director, a producer, even a special effects person or company (as proved to be the case for Deadpool). Make contacts in the business before you need them. Easier said than done, but it underlines the important of networking. Go to film festivals, talks, and industry events whenever you can. If you’re a typical introvert writer (like me), force yourself to talk to people.

5: If possible, create something tangible to represent the screenplay. This could be a comic book, a short film, a play, a web series, or anything else you can think of. Pick a format that you can do well—a poorly made short film isn’t going to help you sell a well-written script. You’ll get better results by teaming up with others eager to prove their complementary abilities. Raindance classes and events are a great way to do this.

6: Find fans and make them happy. If you do create something tangible, get it out there and build a fan base for it using social media. These are the people who will get behind your efforts to set up the film, too.

7: Be lucky. The only advice I have on this point is the old quote, “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”

Jurgen Wolff’s Script Coach series starts on Monday, 10 July and runs for five Monday evenings. You can still sign up for the series or for individual sessions here.

Josh Brolin Preps His Guns for Deadpool 2’s Cable

Josh Brolin Preps His Guns for Deadpool 2's Cable

Josh Brolin preps his guns for Deadpool 2’s Cable

Josh Brolin is already filming his dismantling of The Avengers as Thanos in Marvel Studios’ Infinity War, but the actor is set to take on another beloved comic book icon in the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. Brolin took to Instagram to show off his workout regiment as he preps for the role and his arms appear to be sculpted by Rob Liefeld himself.

“Just saw Dave Bautista at the gym and he said: “What the f*ck happened to you?!” Haha. Best compliment ever,” Brolin wrote with his video. Check it out below!

The time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops, Brolin’s Cable will appear alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth and newcomer Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, a luck-manipulating mutant. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) is also attached to play the film’s central villain which, while unconfirmed, is rumored to be Irish mutant Black Tom Cassidy.  Shioli Kutsuna was also recently cast in an undisclosed role. Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.

John Wick‘s David Leitch is directing Deadpool 2 from a screenplay by the returning Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Reynolds is again serving as a producer on Deadpool 2 alongside X-Men franchise caretakers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.

The Deadpool sequel hits theaters on June 1, 2018.

Fox Confirms 2018 Dates for ‘Deadpool 2’, ‘X-Men’ and ‘New Mutants’, Shuffles ‘The Predator’, ‘Maze Runner’ & More

Deadpool 2 Release Date

This morning 20th Century Fox caught everyone off guard by announcing new release dates for all four of the developing Avatar sequels that will start shooting this summer. But that wasn’t the only release date news the studio had to offer.

Fox has also confirmed the release dates for all of their Marvel movies in 2018, which includes X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Deadpool 2 and New Mutants. In addition, they’ve also shuffled the dates for The Predator, the delayed Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the remake of Murder on the Orient Express, and the spy thriller Red Sparrow. Plus, they’ve also given a release date to Steven Spielberg‘s next movie.

Get all the updated 20th Century Fox release dates after the jump.

First up, the Deadpool 2 release date is much more prime real estate than its predecessor’s February debut last year. This time the Merc with a Mouth will hit theaters on June 1, 2018. However, it won’t be the first Marvel movie from Fox that year, because they’ve set New Mutants for a debut on April 13, 2018. Then the X-Men line-up will conclude the year with X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018.

Meanwhile, there’s good and bad news for fans eagerly awaiting The Predator from director Shane Black. The bad news is Fox has pushed back that movie from its February 2018 release date all the way back to August 3, 2018. The good news is that’s actually a vote of confidence in the movie. They’re putting it in that first August weekend, which is where the first Guardians of the Galaxy cleaned up at the box office since there’s usually not much competition in the rest of the month. That means they think it’ll be a solid summer release, but they don’t want it to contend with the rest of the blockbuster madness that summer.

Moving into The Predator‘s evacuated February 9, 2018 release date will be Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which had previously been set to come out the month before. The film’s production was delayed when star Dylan O’Brien was injured in a stunt gone wrong. The film was meant to resume production early this year, so either they’ve already started or they will soon and they’ll have the rest of the year for post-production after that.

In addition, the spy thriller Red Sparrow starring Jennifer Lawrence is going to take the actress back to The Hunger Games box office territory by moving from its initial November 2017 release date back a few months to March 2, 2018. The film got some solid buzz when the trailer played at CinemaCon not too long ago, and it should be a solid spring release for the studio.

Taking Red Sparrow‘s old November 10, 2017 release date will be the remake of Murder on the Orient Express, starring Kenneth Branagh (who also directs), Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Lucy Boynton and more. It could be one that goes for some awards, especially in the acting department.

Also looking for some awards love will be the new film from Steven Spielberg. The press release from 20th Century Fox lists the film as untitled, but it’s presumably the film known as The Post that we learned about just last month., since that’s the only movie the director has set up at Fox. The film will see Spielberg directing Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in a story about The Washington Post‘s showdown with the United States government over the “Pentagon Papers,” a classified military document that was leaked to the press by military analyst Daniel Ellsberg.

Finally, for those who are itching for the sequel to Kingsman: The Golden Circle, it’s been bumped up just a tad to September 22, 2018, a week before it was supposed to hit theaters. We’re still waiting on a new trailer to hit the web, but it’s on the way, so stay tuned for that and updates on all these films from 20th Century Fox.

Which one of these movies are you looking forward to the most?

New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix Release Dates Revealed

New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix Release Dates Revealed

New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix release dates revealed

Following their reveal that the next four Avatar movies are set to arrive starting in 2020, 20th Century Fox has revealed three more release dates for some of their fan favorite properties. The first is the long awaited New Mutants movie which will debut April 13, 2018, following by the highly anticipated Deadpool 2 on June 1, 2018, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018.

In addition, the studio has announced Shane Black’s The Predator has been delayed from its February 9, 2018 release date to August 3, 2018.

New Mutants hails from director Josh Boone with a cast set to include Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as Magik, Nat Wolff as Cannonball, and James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier. The film is set to open against one of Universal’s rebooted monster movies.

Deadpool 2 will once again star Ryan Reynolds as the merc with a mouth alongside Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino. John Wick‘s David Leitch is directing Deadpool 2 from a screenplay by the returning “real heroes here,” screenwriters Reese and Paul Wernick. Reynolds is again serving as a producer on Deadpool 2 alongside X-Men franchise caretakers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. Currently no other film is scheduled for June 1, 2018.

Details are lite on X-Men: Dark Phoenix, whose title isn’t explicitly confirmed either, but it was previously reported that Simon Kinberg would write and direct the film. Disney’s Mulan remake is scheduled to arrive on the film’s November 2 release date as well.

Shane Black directs the new Predator movie from a script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker. The cast includes Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen , Sterling K. Brown and Edward James Olmos. Two other movies are set for the August 3, 2018 release date including an untitled live-action Disney movie and Sony’s Holmes and Watson.
