Ryan Reynolds’ donning of “Deadpool” turned the hero universe into a totally different genre that took the world pleasantly surprised.  A Marvel anti-hero known for his unrelenting and acerbic sense of humor,  the first "Deadpool" movie that was released in February 2015 became a worldwide smash hit with $783.1 million at the box-office so far.

                With the latest release of the very unusual red band teaser trailer of the feverishly-anticipated sequel Deadpool is seen wearing a wig and carrying a paint palette, mimicking Bob Ross from the famous decade-long show “The Art of Painting” during the early ‘80s.   The red band trailer, suffused with creative expletives only Deadpool can deliver, gives the audience a peek of what to expect in the sequel – extreme action with his friends in the biz fighting villains such as  Cable (played by Josh Brolin), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Blind Al (Leslie Uggams).  

                “Deadpool 2” is a 20th Century Fox feature film that will open in Phils. cinemas on May 30, 2018.  Follow 20th Century Fox (Ph) on Facebook,  20thcenturyfoxph on IG and YouTube, @20centuryfox on Twitter.

Global megastar Dwayne Johnson headlines the action adventure “Rampage,” directed by Brad Peyton. 

Check out the film’s newly launched teaser trailer below and watch “Rampage” in Philippine cinemas in 2018.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth.  But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size.  To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals.  As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.  

 “Rampage” also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight”), Malin Akerman (TV’s “Billions”), Jake Lacy (TV’s “Girls”), Joe Manganiello (TV’s “True Blood”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s “The Walking Dead”); as well as P.J. Byrne (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Marley Shelton (“Solace”), Breanne Hill (“San Andreas”), Jack Quaid (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), and Matt Gerald (TV’s “Daredevil”).

Peyton directs from a screenplay by Ryan Engle and Carlton Cuse & Ryan J. Condal and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle, based on the video game Rampage.

The “Rampage” creatures are brought to life by acclaimed VFX supervisor Colin Strause (“San Andreas,” “X-Men: Apocalypse”), with five-time Academy Award-winning visual effects company Weta Digital (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”).

A New Line Cinema presentation, “Rampage” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Shot on location in Fort San Pedro, Cebu City, the video will also be shown on Channel V starting today.

“I love this song,” Pascual told his fans after performing the song live for the first time at the Venice Piazza Grand Canal Mall on Wednesday, November 15. “As soon as I started my singing career, I knew I wanted to make an impact on my generation. I wanted to leave an imprint.”

During the open forum with fans, Pascual shared that recording a Disney song is a dream come true for him.  “I grew up watching Disney and Pixar films, so to be associated with them through this song is a blessing. Every artist dreams of this, I can’t believe it came true for me.”

Explaining what makes the song special, the 20-year-old singer-composer said, “The song speaks about, ‘Remember me for the positive things I did, remember me even if I have to travel far.’ Make every second count. Be you, be yourself.”

“Remember Me,” the signature song from “Coco,” was composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the Oscar-winning duo who created the songs for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 2013 feature Frozen.

Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” opens in Philippine cinemas on November 22.  Walt Disney Animation Studios's “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” an all-new featurette, will play in front of the film.

The Mountain Between Us Movie Review: An Engaging Story Of Survival That Ends Up As An Interracial Romance

‘THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US’ starts as a survival story and ends up being a love story about an interracial romance. The lead characters are Alex (Kate Winslet), a photojournalist, and Ben (Idris Elba), a neurosurgeon. They’re total strangers on their way from Idaho to Denver. Alex is getting married the next day while Ben is supposed to operate on a young patient. But commercial flights are suddenly cancelled due to a coming snowstorm.

Alex suggests to Ben that they team up by chartering a small plane so they can get to their destination on time. They hire an independent pilot (Beau Bridges) who takes his own dog on their flight. But like most well laid plans, they didn’t foresee that their pilot will have a heart attack during their flight and their plane crashes into the snowy mountains of Northern Utah.

They’re both wounded but Alex also suffers from a broken leg. What’s worse is that their pilot didn’t file their flight, their plane’s beacon and radio were destroyed in the crash, there’s no cellphone signal, and they are on their own with no one even looking for them. So they have no choice but to fight for their own survival while stranded amidst very beautiful but very harsh wintry surroundings in the wilderness, beautifully captured for the big screen by cinematographer Mandy Walker.

Both Alex and Ben have strong personalities, but they must now learn how to co-exist in order to survive the plane crash. Ben, who’s quiet and secretive, wants them to just stay on the place where their plane crashed until rescue comes along, but Alex,who tries to probe Ben to get to know more about him and his wife, says she thinks their best chance is if they’d venture to trek back to civilization and look for help, even if she has an injured leg.

During their stay in the mountains, they start to learn more about each other. At first they think that they won’t survive their ordeal as they don’t even have food, except for a cougar who threatened Kate’s life and ends up being eaten. But as days turn into weeks and they trek from the mountains to lower elevations, they start not to lose hope that they might just make it.

Idris Elba is one of the busiest stars today. He was in the last “Star Trek: Beyond” as Krall, played the Gunslinger in “Dark Tower”, was also in “Molly’s Game” with Jessica Chastain and “Thor: Ragnarok” as Heimdall. He also did voice work in hit animated films like “Jungle Book”, “Finding Dory” and “Zootopia”, and various TV series. We last saw Kate Winslet as the antagonist in the “Divergent” series and it’s nice to see her back in a lead role now.

Considering that “Mountain Between Us” is a film about just two people (plus a dog), both Kate and Idris give persuasive performances that bring gravitas to their respective roles and manage to make the narrative unfold in an interesting manner.

At the start, you don’t think they’re a likeable pairing but their chemistry builds up gradually in the course of the film as they face tough trials to survive. If you prefer non-gooey, non-sudsy romantic stories with a different kind of low-key treatment, you will surely enjoy this movie with its final scene set in London, as directed by Israeli filmmaker Hany Abu Assad who’s best known for his acclaimed film about suicide bombers, “Paradise Now”.
