Last year’s ‘Suicide Squad’ was a talking point for many reasons – and now it’s notched up another. In a gif that’s been cut together from a behind-the-scenes featurette, you can clearly see that the actress’s waist has been narrowed to appear what they deem more aesthetically pleasing to viewers. Positive body image is considered an important ethical trait in 2017, with TV shows and movies often slammed if they fail to promote all body types and attempt to exclude bodies that aren’t stick-thin.
Following last week’s news of a drop in the number of female directors working in Hollywood, it’s emerged that actresses seem to getting a seriously raw deal when it comes to dialogue. Despite high-profile leading roles for the likes of Margot Robbie in ‘Suicide Squad’, Ellen DeGeneres in ‘Finding Dory’ and Felicity Jones in ‘Rogue One’, the trend is still very much in favour of men getting the lion’s share of the lines. Data scientist Amber Thomas has published her findings on Medium.com’s FreeCodeCamp site, and they’re pretty damning.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ has been named the highest-grossing movie of 2016, having hauled in – wait for it – a massive $1.153 billion (around £931 million). The Marvel sequel convincingly beat Disney’s ‘Finding Dory’ to the top spot, though the Pixar sequel made a perfectly respectable $1.028 billion (£830 million) worldwide. The figures have been stacked up by The Hollywood Reporter, with ‘Zootropolis’ coming in third (£827 million), followed by ‘The Jungle Book’ (£781 million), and ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ (£707 million). ...
It’s a dubious honour… but one movie above all others has been pinched the most this year. And it was (drum roll, please) comicbook smash hit ‘Deadpool’. According to data from Torrentfreak, which provides an annual list of the most-stolen movies, Ryan Reynolds’ comeback topped the list. Several sources were taken into consideration, including download stats from public bit torrent trackers. ...
The critics may have hated it – to put it mildly – but ‘Suicide Squad’ has made it to the top of movie data site IMDb‘s most popular movies of the year list. The Warner Bros tentpole, released in August, was the most searched-for movie by the website’s users, and with all of the top five being comicbook adaptations. At number two was ‘Captain America: Civil War’, followed by ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, ‘Deadpool’, and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. Seems like the appetite for superheroes is a voracious as ever, then. Here’s the full list below: 1. Suicide Squad 2. Captain America: Civil War ...
2016. Hailed by no one as ‘the best year ever’, it’s been as tumultuous on-set as it has been out there in the real world. Herein lie some of the biggest scandals of the year… Hellish conditions on The Revenant Sure it was a realistic portrayal of the brutality of the wilderness, but the over-budget, over-schedule set of Alejandro G. Inarritu’s ‘The Revenant’ was described as ‘a living hell‘ by some. ...
It’s a running joke throughout the none-more-meta superhero comedy that budget and contracts prevent Deadpool from interacting with his more A-list Marvel stablemates – Deadpool himself frequently references X-Men that Fox didn’t allow us to see. Yes, the same turbine-powered mobile aircraft carrier as used by the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fox weren’t allowed to reference the carrier by name, and the design had to be tweaked a little, but ‘Deadpool’ visual artist Emmanuel Shiu confirmed the connection.
It looks like that spin-off Harley Quinn movie with Margot Robbie is go. Rumoured earlier this year, even before the release of ‘Suicide Squad’, the Australian actress has now signed a ‘first look’ deal with Warner Bros, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It will have helped no end that ‘Suicide Squad’, despite its terrible reviews, has raked in the cash for Warner Bros – it currently stands at a $701 million gross worldwide.
