Deadpool 2 Spoiled The Major Deaths In Dark Phoenix

The perhaps unfairly maligned Dark Phoenix has suffered a number of ignoble landmarks since its release. As well as taking a critical drubbing, the X-Men movie will reportedly leave a $100 million hole in studio 20th Century Fox’s balance sheet. The pic’s box office disaster is a shame, as while Dark Phoenix is flawed, it’s far from a complete train wreck. However, for eagle-eyed viewers at ScreenRant, some of Dark Phoenix‘s biggest spoilers had already been teased by Deadpool 2.

The Deadpool movies have consistently played up their anti-hero’s proximity to the Fox X-Men canon, whether that means putting in obscure cameos, or straightforwardly acknowledging the absence of major characters. In Deadpool 2, they went one further by having Wade Wilson move to the X-Mansion to wallow in grief alongside Colossus.

For a fleeting moment, we see the Dark Phoenix-era X-Men in the background of a shot,

Netflix acquires video game adaptation The Division starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain

During Ubisoft’s panel at E3, the publisher has announced that its long-gestating feature film adaptation of Tom Clancy’s The Division has been acquired by streaming giant Netflix.

David Leitch is set to direct The Division, which has Jake Gyllenhaal (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Jessica Chastain (It: Chapter Two) attached to star, as well as producing through their Nine Stories and Freckle Films banners respectively.

As per Deadline, The Division “takes place in the near future where a pandemic virus is spread via paper money on Black Friday, decimating the city of New York and killing millions. By Christmas, what’s left of society has descended into chaos. A group of civilians, trained to operate in catastrophic times, are activated in an attempt to save who and what remains.”

The Division video game was released in 2016, and proved to be a huge hit for Ubisoft, toppling Watch Dogs to become its biggest seller.

Dwayne Johnson Describes a Brutal Scene From Hobbs & Shaw That Had To Be Cut Out

Dwayne Johnson wanted to do some crazy hardcore and brutal stuff in Hobbs & Shaw. While we will get to see plenty insane fight and action sequences in the movie, one thing we won’t get to see is Johnson bite a guys eyeball out of his head and spit it out!

That’s right, Johnson’s Hobbs character was going to get super savage in the movie and bite a dude’s eye out! The actor shared a video showing a fight sequence being filmed, and this was the comment he left with the video:

“A lil’ behind the scenes taste of the Hobbs & Shaw savagery that takes place in Samoa.

This bludgeoning will be in the film, but unfortunately the scene where I bite the bad guy’s eye out and spit it on the dirt didn’t make it. MPAA ratings board forbid us to show it because it was too violent.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Chastain Action Movie ‘The Division’ Lands at Netflix

Three years ago, in July 2016, we learned that Jessica Chastain would be joining Jake Gyllenhaal in a film based on the popular Ubisoft video game The Division.

John Wick VFX Artist Reveals How They Plot Out Its Bloody Violence

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is practically a ballet of carefully choreographed violence, just as beautiful to watch as it is brutal. But those who pay attention to the detail may have realized that the latest installment of the Keanu Reeves-led franchise is virtually torture porn when compared to the first film, joyfully lingering on shots of punctured eyeballs and shattered toenails to the wake of Wick’s destruction.

Those behind the John Wick series have prided themselves on its perfect mix of ruthlessness and realism, especially directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski. Former stunt performers themselves, the duo knew exactly how they wanted the violence portrayed on screen, and instructed their visual effects team to take a more reserved approach to the carnage.

Kirk Brillon, the VFX supervisor from John Wick: Chapter 2, recently revealed to Variety that Stahelski even had specific intentions for the amount blood seen throughout

John Wick’s Already Killed More People Than Jason And Michael Myers Combined

Who would’ve thought that after just three movies, John Wick would be the most lethal killer in the business? Better yet, who would’ve thought Chad Stahelski and David Leitch’s 2014 revenge thriller would spawn an entire franchise? And yet, here we are, celebrating the arrival of Chapter 3 – Parabellum and all of its kick-ass action scenes.

Because make no mistake, the third (and definitely not final) chapter in Wick’s cinematic saga is a slick, expertly crafted action movie. It’s earned rare reviews ever since it blasted its way into theaters, and now that the Internet is fawning over Keanu Reeves and his on-screen hitman, the good folks at Bloody Disgusting and Rotten Tomatoes have crunched the numbers to reveal that John Wick has already killed more people than Michael Myers (140) and Jason Voorhees (157) combined. And he did so in just three movies.

Between them, Myers and Voorhees have amassed 297 kills across 20 films,

John Wick 4 Is Coming in Summer 2021
Keanu Reeves will be back as the legendary assassin John Wick for at least one more round of ultra-violent, pulse-pounding action. Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have confirmed that John Wick 4 is indeed in the works. What's more, they've already locked down a release date for the sequel, and it's coming a little bit sooner than some may think, as the studio has planted a flag for May 2021.

The news was confirmed by the studio via a text message that was sent to those who had signed up for updates regarding John Wick 3: Parabellum. The text message not only confirmed that a fourth installment is happening, but revealed a May 21, 2021 release date. That means Lionsgate is sticking to their strategy of treating this as more of a summer blockbuster action franchise.
