Nice! I am too lazy to compete sadly. But I'm sure there will be many great entries.

The trailers are very good. I like the cast as well. But it could be another case of too many cooks spoiling the broth. Too bad Affleck is in it. I will wait for the reviews.

Marvel did an interesting experiment this month by putting out a Soviet WWII style propaganda B cover for nearly every ongoing series. Art by Michael Cho.

More here:

On the DC side legendary artist Neal Adams has been providing some interesting B covers. This one is a variation of the classic Green Lantern/Green Arrow cover from 1971.

I have enjoyed Tom Mandrakes art in the past but this cover is not his best work.

Time for Erik Larsen to hang up his pencil. He's been phoning it in for decades.

No toys really stood out to me this month as either being very good or very bad.

Looks like a must see. I better hurry up and watch Ant Man. Not too excited to see Spidey in it I have to say if it's not Tobey. The person they got to play him is literally a kid. He's 19. 

Glass harmonica! I think Deaf would enjoy this.

A seventeen minute fan film about Darth Maul that's better than the two hour billion dollar crapfest known as The Force Awakens.

I love the idea of a procedurally generated universe to explore. It's coming out for the PC btw. That's what I will be playing it on if it gets good reviews. I plan on being a naughty astronaut.

I can't believe that stupid bitch asked if wrestling was fake. What is this 1982?

Probably the worst for me is 4chan.

Movies / Deadpool Kills the Box Office
« on: February 15, 2016, 12:19:39 PM »
From Boxofficemojo.com

Blowing away even the most lofty of expectations, Deadpool decimated the Valentine's and President's Day weekend box office in record-breaking fashion with an estimated $135 million three-day weekend. As for its incoming competition, How to be Single performed mostly as expected while fifteen years proved too long to wait to release Zoolander 2.

Rewriting the box office record books, Deadpool broke Fifty Shades of Grey's previous February opening weekend record by nearly $45 million based on estimates and that's just the start. The largest opening for an R-rated film was previously $91.7 million, set by The Matrix Reloaded in 2003. That's been destroyed. The largest opening weekend for an R-rated comic book adaptation was previously set by 300 with $70.8 million. Bye, bye.

This is even the largest opening weekend ever for 20th Century Fox, beating a record of $108.4 million previously held by Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Though, to be fair, Revenge of the Sith did open on a Thursday where it brought in $50 million so it's not a complete apples-to-apples comparison, but it does bring us to Deadpool's expected four-day run.

Right now Fox is estimating a $150 million four-day weekend while rival studios go as high as $156 million. In just its first two days Deadpool nearly broke the previous President's Day weekend record of $93 million set by Fifty Shades of Grey, so it already holds the overall record, now it's only a matter of how much will it end up making once Monday's official totals are revealed.

This is also the largest opening for star Ryan Reynolds, a distinction previously held by X-Men Origins: Wolverine at $85 million. More exciting, however, may be the fact this is the largest opening weekend for a first-time director. Deadpool was directed by Tim Miller whose previous credits include a pair of short films along with serving as a visual effects guru for video games including "Mass Effect 2" and "Star Wars: The Old Republic". The previous record holder was Chris Miller, director of Shrek the Third, which opened with $121.6 million back in 2007. As far as live action films are concerned, Robert Stromberg held the previous record with the $69.4 million opening for Maleficent.

The weekend is also coming up roses for Deadpool overseas as the film brought in a whopping $125 million from 61 international markets. This is the third highest grossing international opening for Fox ever. Among the accolades, the film scored the largest industry opening in Russia with $12.4 million as well as the largest Fox opening in 13 other markets including Australia ($10m); Taiwan ($8.25m); Brazil ($5.9m); Hong Kong ($3.8m); and Malaysia ($2.9m). Overall we're looking at a $260.1 million worldwide debut for the "Merc with a Mouth".
