The official red band AND green band trailers for the upcoming Ryan Reynolds film Deadpool hit the web last night. Both trailers were similar to each other with the red band having a bit of R rated material in it. 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.
It looks like The Hobbit trilogy is coming back to the big screen again. The Hobbit Trilogy Extended Editions will make a theatrical return this October! In addition to being the first time the extended editions will be shown in theaters, this run will also feature a new introduction from Jackson himself. “Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are partnering to present the extended editions of all three Hobbit movies. Shown over three nights, the epic Peter Jackson trilogy will be the first time the extended editions have ever been released in theatres. Also included will be an exclusive introduction by director Peter Jackson. First night showing starts Monday, October 5th, 2015 at 7:30pm local. Tickets will be regular admission prices for each movie.”

As some of you may know, actor Hugh Jackman has been attached to star in the upcoming film Collateral Beauty for director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. However, Jackman has had to pull out of the film due to a scheduling conflict with his upcoming Wolverine film. Fox is now in final negotiations with Will Smith to take over the role. The film, co-starring Rooney Mara, centers on a New York advertising executive (Smith) who experiences a deep personal tragedy. His colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression — which works — but not in a way that anyone imagined.
A new trailer for the upcoming film Stonewall has hit the web. The film is being helmed by Independence Day director Roland Emerich and is being released by Roadside Attractions. Stonewall centers on the fictional Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine), who is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent’s home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven. As Danny and his friends experience discrimination, endure atrocities and are repeatedly harassed by the police, we see a rage begin to build.
With there already being two movies based on the Boston bombing in 2013 on the way, one being directed by David Gordon Green called Stronger and another starring Casey Affleck called Boston Strong… you can add a THIRD film to that list that is moving forward. Director Peter Berg, who directed such films as Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights and Hancock, is taking the helm of Patriots’ Day. Patriots’ Day will tell the story from the perspective of Boston Police commissioner Ed Davis.

Sean Gibbons writes: Hey Collider Crew, love the show. I always hear you guys talking about how Warcraft and Assassins Creed are the two movies that have a chance to make movie adaptations a positive thing. Well what about the new Hitman movie. I think this movie has a chance to be the first truly great video game adaptation. What are your thoughts? Is this movie slipping under the radar? Thanks and keep up the great work!
Sergio Iglesias writes: Hello, Collider Movie Talk, I love the show, watch it everyday from Spain. My email is more a recommendation than a question. I often have a discussion with my friends about CGI vs practical effects, especially after watching Mad Max Fury Road. I usually defend CGI and I think people tend to use only examples of bad CGI and forget when it is good. I think you guys have talked about that a few times. This is an excellent video I found on youtube about all this. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for your work, you guys are awesome.
