zoolander 2 Zoolander No. 2 (2016) Movie ReviewZoolander No. 2

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Penelope Cruz; Director: Ben Stiller; Release Date Wide: 02/12/2016; Runtime (in minutes): 102; MPAA Rating: PG-13

In addition to being very funny, the first Zoolander was a resilient little comedy. Ben Stiller’s low satire of high fashion landed in theaters less than three weeks after 9/11. And while the country wasn’t quite ready to laugh at the helium-light high jinks of a pair of clueless male models at the time, it ended up having the legs of a catwalk Amazon on DVD. A cult hit was born. Unfortunately, bad timing is a problem again with Zoolander No. 2. Not because of anything in the headlines, just because it’s been so long since we first met Stiller and Owen Wilson’s dim-and-dimmer narcissists Derek and Hansel that a sequel—or at least this sequel—feels sad and desperate, like a comic who doesn’t know when to get off stage. The flop sweat drips from the opening scene, where a labored Justin Bieber gag barely elicits a chuckle but provides the film with its lazy plot trigger: Who’s killing the world’s biggest pop stars? It’s all downhill from there as Stiller and co-writers Justin Theroux, John Hamburg, and Nicholas Stoller flail at the lowest-hanging pop culture fruit. For reasons too uninteresting to explain, Derek and Hansel team up in Rome with a member of Interpol’s fashion division (a game Penélope Cruz) to foil the evil Mugatu (Will Ferrell) and his leathery, Donatella Versace-esque partner in crime (Kristen Wiig) while reuniting with Derek’s estranged and (gasp!) chubby son. The thing is, if Stiller spent half as much time sharpening the film’s jokes as he did rifling through his Rolodex for celebrity cameos (Willie Nelson, Kiefer Sutherland, Susan Boyle?!), he might’ve coughed up a few laughs. As it is, though, Zoolander No. 2 is embarrassing, lazy, and aggressively unfunny. The only good news is that at the pace the franchise is moving, we won’t get Zoolander 3 until 2030.

deadpool Deadpool (2016) Movie ReviewRyan Reynolds stars as a superhero not quite like the others in the latest — and certainly raunchiest — Marvel movie, directed by Tim Miller

Very dirty and rather funny.


For the multitudes who feared that, after Fantastic Four, Fox might simply be rummaging too far down into Marvel’s basement in search of a few more scraps of lucre, the joke’s on them. It takes a little while to get in gear — or perhaps just to adjust to what’s going on here — but once it does, Deadpool drops trou to reveal itself as a really raunchy, very dirty and pretty funny goof on the entire superhero ethos, as well as the first Marvel film to irreverently trash the brand. Just what anyone suffering from genre burn-out might appreciate at this point, as well as a big in-joke treat for all but the most reverent fanboys, this looks to be hitting the market at just the right time — with Christmas releases now in the rearview mirror — to rake in some sweet returns.

Given the surprising amount of nudity, raw sex jokes and nonstop underlined and boldfaced racy dialogue, it’s amusing to picture the countless pubescent boys who will be plotting how to get into this extremely R-rated romp; they no doubt have their ways. Not only does Ryan Reynolds give it his all, shall we say, but the conversations here mostly resemble the sort of thing you’d expect to hear around last call at a Bakersfield biker bar. Or, more to the point, what you’d get if you mashed up the dialogue from the two previous scripts written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Zombieland and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Last seen decapitated and heading down the chimney of a nuclear plant at the end of X-Men: Origins in 2009, Wade Wilson/Deadpool has always seemed like a tough cookie to crack in terms of centering a mass-audience film around him. A brash and brazen mercenary, he’s an anti-hero with a film noir character’s taste for the louche and low-down, as well as a character who, in narrative terms, stands out due to his predilection for breaking the fourth wall. Whether he could make the grade as the leading man of a franchise of his own was always a question, which partly accounts for the prolonged wait-and-see on Marvel’s part.

Other reasons for hesitation lay in the character not being a superhero like all the others and, if the pic were to be done right, the necessity of an R rating — a place Marvel has never gone before. How to reconcile the brand’s image and fan base with such material? The answer probably lies in the fact that Marvel is so successful now, and so far down the line with their various franchises, that shaking things up and breaking out of the box was seen as permissible and maybe even a good thing. Or perhaps executives aware early on of what was happening with Fantastic Four said, “Opposite direction! Now!”

At first, with some strained/cheeky opening credits (“a moody teen,” “a gratuitous cameo”) followed by an emotionally investment-free highway action sequence notable for its splatter gore content, things don’t look promising — just wise-assy and needlessly violent. Who is this guy in red-and-black spandex with white fabric where eyes should be, who fights with two katanas, spins in the air in slo-mo and has wounds that heal at once? Shoot this guy full of holes and he’ll be back at you within seconds. “I may be super, but I’m no hero,” he cracks. Why should we care?

Flash back two years and things seem no better, save, perhaps, for the dude’s face, which now plainly belongs to Reynolds. A grown man who hangs at a skateboard park, Wade Wilson is a former Special Forces operative whose watering hole is a dive called Sister Margaret’s Home for Wayward Girls, where the guys are all former soldiers of fortune who never hit the jackpot and the gals look like Hooters rejects. Wade and a bitter hooker named Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) hit it off and get it on in a kinky montage that’s more out-there than what most Hollywood-made R-rated stuff ever serves up.

It’s right around here, and immediately afterward, when Wade is diagnosed as having late-stage cancer, that, ironically, the film really starts to click. When a doctor mentions the possibility of going to Chechnya for special treatment, Wade responds, “Isn’t that where you go to get cancer?,” and you finally begin to sense that there might be something to this verbal speed-freak character after all.

The positioning of the flashback seems simple but serves the movie extremely well, especially with the arrival of Ajax (Ed Skrein, deeply evil), a doctor and head of something called the WeaponX workshop, who takes Wade on as a reclamation project and turns him into a fighting machine who can never die. Ajax’s sadism during the painful transformation process knows no bounds and, at the end of the ordeal, he takes particular pleasure in introducing Wade to his new face, which resembles ground round (Vanessa’s measured reaction to beholding it is, “It’s a face … I’d be happy to sit on.”).

Now a freak behind his mask and form-fitting outfit, Wade/Deadpool has it out for Ajax, but their ultimate face-off, previewed in the opening scene, must wait until after Deadpool teams up with two unlikely cohorts: the metallic giant Colossus, who does what he can to protect him, and a rebellious teen who can’t possibly live up to her name, Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). For his part, Ajax has his own one-woman hit squad in Angel Dust (mixed martial-arts champ and Haywire star Gina Carano).

The final showdown is very small potatoes by Marvel standards and, of course, predictable, but compensates with humor, which is what floats the entire project. The script has the feel of something gone over again and again and yet again to double the number of jokes each time. The machine-gun approach doesn’t always hit, but it does enough so that, in the end, the number of laughs is pretty high.

Beyond even what Robert Downey Jr. has done in the Iron Man series, Reynolds lets fly here in a manic, sly, self-conscious way that leaves you not quite knowing what hit you; the irreverence slides quickly into lewd comic territory, the inside jokes about Marvel in particular and pop culture in general come fast and furious, the fourth-wall breakage is disarming and the actor’s occasional fey, high-pitched voicings add yet another strange element. As in the presence of motor-mouthed comedians, you either sit there stone-faced or eventually capitulate to the cascade of weirdness and the fertility of wayward minds unleashed.

A longtime commercials and visual effects executive and creative director, Tim Miller hasn’t so much directed his first feature as liberated much of what has been bubbling under the surface of superhero films for a long time; it answers a lot of the questions you were afraid to ask.

For the record, Deadpool features one of Stan Lee’s best Marvel cameos — it’s actually funny.

hail ceasar Box Office News: Hail, Caesar! Fumbles With $11.4M; Pride and Zombies Lifeless

Holdover ‘Kung Fu Panda 3′ easily stays No. 1 in its second weekend as the three films daring to open over Super Bowl weekend, including Nicholas Sparks’ film adaptation ‘The Choice,’ drop the ball; ‘The Revenant’ No. 1 overseas, crosses $300 million globally.

The big winner of the weekend is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which crossed $900 million domestically and became only the third film to ever make over $2 billion worldwide.

Ethan and Joel Coen’s Hail, Caesar! grossed an underwhelming $11.4 million from 2,222 theaters over Super Bowl weekend, the lowest wide opening of the duo’s directing career.

The news was even more grim for mashup Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The movie earned $5.2 million from 2,931 theaters, putting it behind Nicholas Sparks’ film adaptation The Choice, which took in $6.1 million from 2,631 locations. (That’s the lowest opening for Sparks.)

Caesar — receiving a withering C- CinemaScore from audiences — came in No. 2 after Kung Fu Panda 3, which easily topped the North American box-office chart in its second outing. The animated film grossed $21 million for a domestic total of  $69.5 million. And in China, the DreamWorks Animation sequel jumped the $100 million mark after coming in No. 1 in its second weekend with $15.4 million for a China total of $101.7 million.

Kung Fu Panda 3 has earned $198.1 million to date globally, including $16.6 million in South Korea and $9.2 million in Russia. It has yet to roll out in most foreign markets.

The winner of the weekend internationally, however, wasn’t Po the panda but Alejandro G. Inarritu’s awards frontrunner The Revenant, which took in $24 million from 67 markets as it cleared $300 million worldwide. (And on Saturday, Inarritu became the first filmmaker in history to win the DGA Award for best director for two years in a row.) Domestically, The Revenant placed No. 3 with $7.1 million for a cume of $149.7 million. Overseas, it has now grossed $176.4 million for a global tally of $325.1 million through Sunday.

Hail, Caesar! is waiting to begin its international rollout until after it plays at the Berlin Film Festival later this week. An ode to Hollywood of the 1950s, the movie stars George Clooney as an actor who is kidnapped from the set and held for ransom. A Hollywood fixer (Josh Brolin) sets out to right the situation while also dealing with plenty of other fires at the studio. Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes and Jonah Hillalso star in the Universal and Working Title film, which cost $22 million to make after rebates and incentives.

More often than not, films from the Coen brothers are treated like specialty titles and given platform releases. In terms of those that have debuted in more than 1,500 theaters, the previous lowest opening belonged to Intolerable Cruelty with $12.5 million. (The Big Lebowski earned $5.5 million in its first weekend, but only played in 1,207 locations, so it wasn’t considered a wide saturated release.)

“I’m encouraged by the result,” said Universal domestic distribution chief Nick Carpou, who believes Hail, Caesar! will have a strong multiple despite the C- CinemaScore.

Hail, Caesar! skewed male (56 percent) and notably older, with 82 percent of ticket buyers over the age of 25, including nearly 20 percent over the age of 55, according to comScore’s PostTrak service.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, earning a B- CinemaScore, is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s book interjecting zombies into Jane Austen’s classic tale. The story follows heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James), a master of martial arts and weaponry, and Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley), a fierce zombie killer who must rethink his upper-class prejudices when the two join forces to conquer the undead.

The $28 million movie was fully financed by Cross Creek Pictures with Sony’s Screen Gems distributing. Burr Steers directed Zombies, which also stars Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey. It played the youngest of the three films, with 30 percent of ticket buyers between the ages of 18 and 24. Females made up 57 percent.

“We had great word-of-mouth screening. It’s a fun movie that everybody worked hard on. We just wanted to do more,” said Rory Bruer, Sony’s distribution chief.

Lionsgate’s The Choice nabbed a B+ CinemaScore. Directed by Ross Katz, the romancer stars Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer as two neighbors who fall in love upon first meeting. The Choice also stars Maggie Grace, Alexandria Daddario, Tom Welling and Tom Wilkinson. Lionsgate acquired the project for less than $10 million.

The most recently released Sparks adaptation, The Longest Ride, took in $13 million in its debut. The film skewed heavily female (73 percent), with more than half the audience between the ages of 18 and 34.

The Choice came in No. 5 behind Kung Fu Panda 3, Hail, Caesar!, The Revenant and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Force Awakens celebrated Super Bowl weekend by becoming the first movie ever to clear $900 million at the North American box office. And on Saturday, the Disney and Lucasfilm title crossed the $2 billion mark globally, a feat previously belonging only to Avatar and Titanic, not accounting for inflation.

Universal’s Ride Along 2 revved past $100 million globally in its third weekend, including a domestic total of $77.2 million. Elsewhere on the comedy circuit, Paramount and Red Granite’sDaddy’s Home has become Will Ferrell’s top-grossing film internationally with $76.1 million. Globally, Daddy’s Home has grosed $221.4 million.

Hugh Jackman 1 Hugh Jackman cuts a carefree figure as he walks his beloved dogs with children Oscar and Ava in New York

Quality time: Hugh Jackman was joined by children Oscar and Ava for a brisk stroll through downtown Manhattan with family dogs Dali and Allegra on Saturday

He’s currently preparing for his final outing as rugged anti-hero Wolverine, but professional concerns took a back seat for Hugh Jackman during day out in New York City on Saturday afternoon.

The Australian actor was joined by children Oscar and Ava for a brisk stroll through downtown Manhattan with family dogs Dali and Allegra.

On a chilly day Jackman, 46, stayed warm in a quilted jacket and woolly gloves while chatting with his loved ones.

The hunky star kept his eyes shielded behind a pair of heavily tinted sunglasses, while casual chino trousers and trainers rounded off an altogether low key look.

Jackman was in characteristically high spirits on the day and offered onlookers a beaming smile as he passed by.

Not present on the day was his wife of 20-years, actress Deborra-Lee Furness – with whom he adopted Oscar, 16, and ten-year old Ava following two miscarriages.

Jackman appeared to enjoy a carefree day in the city, where he was also seen sporting a backpack while navigating the streets on a mountain bike.

The actor is gearing up for his final appearance as Wolverine, the career defining character he first played in 2000 smash X-Men.

‘It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years,’ he said during a recent appearance on Dr. Oz.

‘I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it.

‘I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.’

He has often talked about the extreme diet and fitness regime he must be on to bulk up for the Wolverine films, consuming 4-6,000 calories and working out for three hours in the gym every day.

‘It’s not the fun calories, chicken, fish, steak, always protein six times a day,’ he told 60 Minutes US in 2013.

Kylie Jenner 1 1 Kylie Jenner exposes new hip inking as she poses for alluring photos while wearing just a hoodie and underwear

Show off: Kylie Jenner displayed her new ‘Sanity’ tattoo in a series of alluring black-and-white images shared on her Instagram account on Saturday

Kylie let the image speak for itself, tagging photographer Sasha Samsonova in the caption of one of the two images instead.

The reality star in one snap played with her raven black hair as she gazed towards the camera with a serious expression.

She certainly knows how to draw an audience, having recently celebrated the obtainment of 50 million Instagram followers.

And Kylie Jenner was certain to lure in new fans on Saturday, as she showed off her brand new tattoo in a series of alluring images.

In one image from the recent photo shoot, the 18-year-old rested on her knees as she wore little more than a hoodie and put her new ‘Sanity’ tattoo on full show.

Twice as nice: The teen shared another barefoot image from the same photo shoot, where her tattoo was also featured, albeit less prominently than the initial photo

Kylie introduced the new tattoo in December on Instagram, tagging tattoo artist Bang Bang, who happily shared a snap of himself with the teen in November.

The black-and-white image was captioned, ‘My newest victim @kyliejenner.’

On Thursday, Kylie shared a third snap from the same black-and-white photo series of herself blowing smoke out of her mouth in celebration of obtaining 50 million Instagram followers.

Khloe Kardashian 1 Khloe Kardashian poses naked in a swimming pool... as she compares herself to Marilyn Monroe

‘Channeling my best Marilyn Monroe’: Khloe Kardashian posted a naked photo of herself to Twitter on Saturday

The photos seemed to be from her family holiday in St Barths back in August as she has previously shared images in the same setting.

Khloe placed her arms over her breasts, but left one nipple exposed as she smouldered for the camera.

The reality star wore nothing but lashings of deep red lipstick, matching nail polish and a gold bangle.

No one could ever accuse the Kardashians of being shy.

And Khloe left absolutely nothing to the imagination on Saturday as she posted naked photos of herself to Twitter, while comparing herself to Marilyn Monroe.

One of the extremely racy images showed the 31-year-old in a swimming pool, submerged in the water from the hips down.

Just an average Saturday?: The 31-year-old shared another nude shot while lying beside the swimming pool

‘Channeling my best Marilyn Monroe,’ Khloe captioned the very daring shot.

She also shared another photo from the shoot, but this time it was a full-body shot with her laying out on her back while pool side.

Khloe kept one of her hands over her chest as she kept her legs propped up in the racy photo.

Back in December, Khloe shared very similar photos as she once again showed off her body but this time had her torso and derriere coated in blue and pink glitter.

Khloe Kardashian 3 Khloe Kardashian poses naked in a swimming pool... as she compares herself to Marilyn Monroe

Incredible curves: Back in December, Khloe shared snaps from what looked like the same shoot from the family trip to St Barths in August

Khloe showed off her incredible curves in the snaps, which were posted by her make-up artist pal Joyce Bonelli who proudly announced she was the glitter artist behind the shoot.

In another one of the raunchy images, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is seen lying on her back with one leg raised, which acted to accentuate her famously shapely derrière.

In an even more raunchy image, she was photographed from behind with her hands on her hips – a pose which showed off her diminutive waist, while she arched her back to show off her bedazzled bottom.

Joyce posted the image of her hard work which entailed Khloe’s curves being doused in blue, pink and gold glitter, which combined with the artistic lighting flaunted her entire shape.

Great from all angles: She made sure to show off her torso and derriere coated in blue and pink glitter

The shoot, which was done at night at the resort she was staying at with her family on vacation in August, shows Khloe proudly showing her naked physique.

In the photo, which was one of a number taken by her sister Kendall, Khloe stretches out her legs beneath the water, her silhouette shimmering beneath the water.

In another photo on her site, she can be seen standing upright, the pool just below above her navel.

She keeps her modesty with strategically placed arms, and parts her lips suggestively, which match her crimson coloured nails.

In addtion to her younger sister, Khloe shared that she was assisted with the shoot by Joyce Bonelli, Jen Atkin, and Jen’s husband, photographer Mike Rosenthal.

After shooting for a bit at Jen’s bungalow, Khloe gushed: ‘We started drinking a little and somehow this impromptu photo shoot turned into a fully nude photo shoot.’

The blonde beauty called the shoot one of her ‘favorites to date’ citing both the images and the company.

‘Thank God I have incredibly talented best friends or we could never capture moments like this,’ she gushed.

Khloe has famously stuck to a strict gym regimen of late, detailing her success in her bestselling book Strong Looks Better Naked.

  • Angelina showed off three new tattoos on her back in Cambodia on Sunday
  • She has been shooting her feature First They Killed My Father in the area
  • Two tattoos appear to be  ancient Thai Buddhist symbols and mantras
  • The third looks like a box and is a Yant known as Paech chaluaek, which is a symbol of good deeds

Angelina Jolie 1 Angelina Jolie, 40, debuts THREE new tattoos on her back as she continues to direct Khmer Rouge film in Cambodia

Look at what’s new: Angelina Jolie debuted three new tattoos on her back when in Cambodia on Sunday. There are two ancient markings (top center and far right) and a Yant known as Paech chaluaek (center, bottom)

Angelina Jolie already has about a dozen tattoos on her body that she has been collecting since she was a teenager just getting her start in Hollywood.

But the 40-year-old Oscar winner is far from done with inking herself up, which she proved over the weekend.

On Sunday the wife of Brad Pitt debuted three more stamps as she was on the set of her new film, the war drama First They Killed My Father, in Cambodia.

Not wearing much: The wife of Brad Putt had on a silly, skimpy tank top that showed off a lot of skin and several of her tattoos; she also wore red strings on her right wrist and her wedding band

The star was overseeing scenes shot in the Angor Watt Temple complex in Cambodia. She has been directing the saga all winter.

All three of the new marks are on her back, joining previous tattoos that say Know Your Rights, a traditional Thai tiger and Cambodian writings that have already been in place for years.

The new markings seemed to be done this year as they have not been seen on the red carpet yet.

The new tattoos include two ancient Thai Buddhist symbols and mantras, which are thought to help provide protection.

One looks like a temple while the other looks like a series of symbols.

They are believed to have been at the same time in January by Bangkok-based artist Ajarn Noo Kanpai. He also worked with Jolie in 2003 on her shoulder blade and in 2004 on her tiger. The artist uses an old method of inking by hand, not a machine.

Orange you glad you were cast: There were several actors dressed as monks

The third tattoo is a box with symbols in it, and rests in the center of her back.

It is thought to be a Yant known as Paech chaluaek, which is a symbol of good deed. Chants are said to be performed after the tattoo is done so to help further the good deeds.

This seems to go in line with Angelina’s UN efforts to help refugees around the world.

According to Australia’s Woman’s Day, Brad also got a new tattoo when Jolie got her two markings from Kanpai.

His was a line from a Bob Dylan song that read: ‘We live, we die but I know I’ll be with you.’

The etching is believed to be a romantic note to his wife.

The publication added that Kanpai used the same ink for both tattoos, to further bond the couple.

In early December, Angelina showed off another new tattoo on her forearm when at the Cambodia Film Festival in Phnom Penh.

With the ink clearly visible on the inside of her left arm, a new addition to her ever-growing collection of body art.

Complete with a thin, intricate outline in black ink it is thought the tattoo is an homage to the thousands who lost their lives during the country’s Khmer Rouge reign, as she is currently in the country working on a film about the atrocities.

The ink appears to be in the style of the Southeast Asian sak yant style of tattooing, which is often constructed with lines of script, geometric patterns and animal shapes.
