Ryan Gosling’s New Hair’do Makes Him Look Totally Different

No me gusta

Ryan Gosling has begun work on his next film, The Big Short, and as you can see below, Ryan is rockin’ a new hair’do that makes him almost unrecognizable. Gone are Ryan‘s usual golden locks … and, if I’m being totally honest, his sex appeal. As I understand it, The Big Short is set during the recession that gripped the country a few years ago … so it doesn’t really sound much like a movie that I’d be interested in seeing. The movie also stars Brad Pitt and Christian Bale but we don’t yet know if they have been made to look as unsexy as Ryan. Click below to see the full photo and get a really good look at what Ryan Gosling looks like these days. More »

Patty Jenkins Has Signed On To Direct The ‘Wonder Woman’ Movie

Take 2

Yesterday we learned the disappointing news that director Michelle MacLaren decided to pull out of the Wonder Woman feature film project due to creative differences with the movie studio. Today we learn the very hopeful news that director Patty Jenkins has signed on to direct Wonder Woman instead. Jenkins was previously hired by Marvel Studios to direct Thor 2 but she left that project before filming production started. Next, she will bring the story of Wonder Woman to life on the big screen which, I must say, is a huge relief. More »

Negasonic Teenage Warhead & Ajax Feature In These New ‘Deadpool’ Movie Set Photos

Action!

Earlier this month, we saw the first photos from the Vancouver set of the new Marvel Studios movie Deadpool and today we get to see a bunch of great new set photos. As you will see in the gallery presented here, Ryan Reynolds was on set in full costume as Deadpool and he was joined by actors Brianna Hildebrand, who plays Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Ed Skrein, who plays Ajax. The inclusion of these characters, along with the X-Men mutant Colossus (who will also appear in the film but is not pictured here), means that Deadpool will absolutely be tied to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe — hopefully, in a brilliantly clever way. It’s always great when we get to see a movie being filmed as set photos are released but it only tends to make me really anxious to see the final product … which, I’m sadly well aware, won’t be in theaters until February of next year. Sigh. Still, it’s fun to see these Deadpool set photos. I can’t wait to see more.

Here Is Our First Look At The Sequel/Reboot Of ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’

A return to Walley World

Today we learn, yet again, that everything old is new again with the release of the first promo photos from the forthcoming sequel/reboot of the National Lampoon’s Vacation movie franchise. Actors Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold in this new Vacation movie, with actor Ed Helms taking over the role of their son Rusty. Christina Applegate has been added to the movie as Rusty‘s wife, along with the couple’s two sons.
