Midterm season is upon us, and we all know what that means: time to figure out how to study and procrastinate at the same time (and by that, we all know that you’re just going to end up procrastinating instead).

We have all seen Ryan Reynolds charge headfirst into a couple superhero movies, sporting a pair of signature tights, only to become part of a flop. The last two times were of course when he played the titular character in Green Lantern, and, coincidentally, Deadpool in the 2009 atrocity, Wolve...

Around Comic Con time this year, a two minute clip of “test footage” of a new film was leaked onto the internet. This footage was of the much anticipated Deadpool movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy took the record for the highest box office opening weekend for an August film in history.
