Ryan Reynolds tweeted a short “For Your Consideration” video for Deadpool on Thursday evening following nominations for the film from the WGA, PGA and DGA in recent weeks. The film has been racking up nominations, shocking many, including a Best Comedy or Musical nomination from the Golden Globes last weekend as well as a Best Actor nom for Reynolds.

Regardless of your political persuasion, 2016 was a year of tumult and uncertainty. At least the movies gave us an occasional break from the headlines. Feel-good animated films triumphed at the box office this year, with Finding Dory at No. 1, while superheroes found a darker groove (the hard-R comedy Deadpool, the villain-driven Suicide Squad) and familiar franchises — Harry Potter, Star Wars — put down new roots. Before we toast the arrival of 2017, here’s a list of the biggest box-office winners and losers of 2016.
Writers and director of blockbuster superhero film on hoping Hollywood studios take the right lessons from their film's success
The son of the late Golden Girls star reveals how star Ryan Reynolds personally asked permission to wear her image on a tank top in the blockbuster film. A version of this story first appeared in the March 18 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Fox’s $600 million box-office juggernaut Deadpool is introducing a new generation to the unlikeliest of heroines: Bea Arthur.
Box office success turns risk into rewards not only for Fox, which has a new franchise on its hands, but for the star, director, and other members of the R-rated superhero blockbuster's creative circle
After years in the making, Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool is finally in theaters. After we learn the names of every gaffer, grip, and caterer who worked on the movie — all to the strains of Deadpool’s signature song, Shoop (by Salt-N-Pepa) — we are treated to the requisite Marvel post-credits sequence. “You’re still here,” observes Deadpool.
When it came time to find their Negasonic Teenage Warhead, though, they weren’t advertising it. “When I auditioned, her name was Kathy, because they do these codenames,” Brianna Hildebrand, the actress who would ultimately land the part, told us at a Deadpool screening Thursday night in Los Angeles.

The satirical, R-rated superhero film Deadpool (opening Feb. 12) has been flooding the Internet with memes, viral videos, and NSFW trailers since last summer. Now, finally, we get a scene from the film itself — though it’s not quite what you might be expecting. In the new clip, super-powered mercenary Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool (Reynolds), shares a dirty-minded moment with his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin). Though both have superhero alter egos (Baccarin’s character is a mutant known as Copycat), the clip shows the couple unmasked, wearing Christmas sweaters… and not much else. ...
Deadpool wants the land down under to know he’s thinking of them. He wished the nation of Australia a “Happy Australia Day! ‘Cause that’s a real thing!” in a new video clip, though his message wasn’t without caveats.
Merry Christmas! Here’s some good news: After a long journey to the screen that included leaked footage, teasers, and trailers for trailers, we finally have real trailers for Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool. The newest, even more NSFW one — the perfect Christmas present to top a string of already-perfect Christmas presents — is below, in all its beautiful, red-banded, red-suited mayhem. (The green-band one is above.)
Marvel’s foul-mouthed mutant Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds) was created in the same evil lab as Wolverine, and even fought Hugh Jackman’s character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now that he has his own movie, Deadpool has been promoted from villain to anti-hero — so is there any chance he’ll team up with the X-Men? Reynolds has his doubts.
Leave it to a bunch of mutants — and a certain Merc with a Mouth — to put an exclamation point on Comic-Con. Making a movie about the profane killing machine has been a pet project for Ryan Reynolds for more than a decade.
