This weekend the new Fox film Deadpool opens in theatres this week and all three of the guys sitting at this table have now seen it. Watch their reviews or read Matt’s Deadpool review here.
Ashe Morris writes: What’s up Collider crew! Love all the work you do. Just one question, are we ever going to get a Tron 2? Or do you think Disney has given up on it now that they have their moneymaker Star Wars (which I love)?
Daniel Dwyer writes: Hey Collider Gang!! I have been watching your show for a few years now and it’s a pleasure watching the show every single day from Australia! My question is: What do you think is the possibility of a Doctor Who movie? The series is not only the longest running Science Fiction series of all time but it holds the recent record of most viewed global simulcast event of all time.
SamDean writes: Hello Collider Crew, huge fan of the show. 2016 is set to be a big year for animation, two months in and we already have a great one in Kung Fu Panda 3. With the remaining Non-Anime films coming about being: Angry Birds, Finding Dory, Ice Age Collision Course, Moana, Ratchet & Clank, Sausage Party, The Secret Life of Pets, Sing, Storks, Trollsand Zootopia; how would you rank your anticipation of these films?
