Ryan Reynolds Unveils ‘Deadpool 2’ Co-star as Domino
With Deadpool 2 looming ever closer on the horizon, anticipation for the sequel to last year’s surprise superhero hit is building steadily. Star Ryan Reynolds threw gas on the flames by tweeting out a first look at new co-star Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, a genetically engineered super soldier and master assassin. The picture is reminiscent of the marketing campaign for the original Deadpool, with Beetz laying by a fire using Deadpool as a rug. That should be a decent indication that the new film will maintain the irreverent tone of its predecessor. The two characters have had an often uneasy alliance in the comic books, often finding themselves on the same side by pure happenstance, though she’s mostly associated with the time traveler Cable, who will be played by Josh Brolin in the upcoming film. Deadpool 2 is expected to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.

Darren Aronofsky Teases ‘mother!’
Darren Aronofsky is set to return to theaters later this year with mother!, his first film since 2014’s Noah. We’ve gotten our first look at the film, which stars Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) and Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), in the form of a brief, 30 second teaser that gives us a small taste of what the filmmaker has in store for us when the film hits theaters on September 18. Aronofsky seems to have returned to his psychological horror wheelhouse for this films, which finds a couple’s life interrupted when a pair of strangers come to their door. A full trailer is expected to hit next week, but this definitely whets our appetite and makes us eager to see more of what Aronofsky has in store for us.
‘Mindhunter’ Looks Like a Potential Mind Bender
David Fincher’s latest Netflix series, Mindhunter, dropped another trailer, taking us deeper into the psychological world of the FBI agents tracking serial killers. The series follows the initial studies of psychopaths the FBI used to formulate their profiles of killers, which are used today in order to help find killers and rapists. There’s a distinct Zodiac vibe coming from the trailer, with atmosphere playing a deeper role than traditional frights, and psychology being more important that blood and guts. Fincher has already had great success with his partnership with Netflix, having created the award winning series, House of Cards for the streaming giant. Mindhunter looks like another potential knockout for Fincher, though we won’t know for sure until it premieres on October 13.
