Despite the fact that “Red Notice” was not well received by critics, Netflix customers appear to be enamoured with the comedy-action film and its A-list ensemble, which includes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot.
The film topped Netflix’s weekly worldwide streaming lists for English-language movies in all 94 countries for the third week in a row.
According to Netflix, the film has received 328.8 million hours of viewing since its November 12 release and has now overtaken Sandra Bullock’s “Bird Box,” which garnered 282 million hours of viewing in its first 28 days.
Johnson took to Instagram to congratulate the creative team, on the positive response to the action-comedy adventure.
Hugh Jackman is currently doing the press rounds for the upcoming sports drama, Eddie the Eagle. On one of those junkets he was surprised to find Ryan Reynolds in the interview chair. Reynolds crashed the junket and asked Jackman a bunch of questions, most of which were sly digs at X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds shared the video on his YouTube channel, which you can view below.
The new Fox/Marvel superhero movie is loud, obnoxious, sarcastic, violent and sexually graphic. It’s also a tremendous lot of fun, at least for the fans.
This has been a passion project for Ryan Reynolds for the past eleven years. But Fox never had enough confidence in the project to green light a movie. They put the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in an attempt to garner popularity and spin the character off. However they mishandled him terribly and the project looked dead. At some point in 2014, test footage for a solo movie leaked online. It was a huge internet sensation and this movie received the green light the next day.
The director Tim Miller’s background is in visual effects and it shows here, the opening credits fuse great action with sublime visual effects. Instead of the normal list of actors’ names, we get a tongue in cheek poke at the superhero/action movie clitches (“A Hot Chick. The comic relief. A British Villain. Directed by an overpaid douche bag”).
Shortly after, the Merc with a Mouth breaks the fourth wall and assures the audience that this is no ordinary superhero movie, “I may be super, but I’m no hero”.
Deadpool is looney toons, but with a face full of scars and a couple of swords. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it will probably be your shot of Jack Daniel’s.
Fans have been waiting years to see Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as the merch with the mouth, now we’re one step closer. He and director Tim Miller are in pre-production for Deadpool. The movie finally starts shooting in Canada, in March.
The movie has booked two months at Vancouver’s North Shore Studios, although it isn’t known if the production will shoot in any other locations around the city.
I can’t wait, I’ve always thought that Ryan Reynolds was born to play two roles, Wally West AKA The Flash and, Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool.
I really hope the film can live up to my expectations. Reynolds and Miller has stated they wanted this to be R-rated (18 in proper money). But the pair eventually made a compromise with Fox, who wanted a PG-13 (12A in proper money).
The film will also star T.J. Miller (big hero 6) and Ed Skrein (the upcoming Statham-less Transporter movie).
Deadpool is set for a February 2016 release and will be part of the wider X-Men universe.
Along with Paul and Chris from The Pharos Project, I travelled to North Wales to catch up with Torchwood’s Eve Myles. We got drunk by an open fire, talked Doctor Who, Torchwood, carpeted bathrooms and working with Zach Braff. Eve also told us about the time she went “Bongo’s up”.
Eve Myles is a Welsh actress from Ystradgynlais. She graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in 2000. Later that year, she began portraying Ceri Lewis in the BBC drama series Belonging, a role she would play until the end of the series in 2009. Myles’ early UK-wide television credits included the 2001 miniseries Tales from Pleasure Beach and the 2003 television drama Colditz. In 2005, she auditioned for a part in the revived series of Doctor Who, and landed the role of servant girl Gwyneth, in the Series 1 episode “The Unquiet Dead”, alongside Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston.
Martyn and The Pharos Project look for Ryan Reynolds, then Martyn and Gerrod look at the second Doctor story ‘The War Games’. The War Games is the final episode of Patrick Troughton’s run in Doctor Who (not counting multi-Doctor stories).
