Deadpool 2 debuted in North America with $125 million in 4,349 locations. That wasn’t enough to match the debut of the original, which had the biggest opening ever for an R-rated film with $132.4 million. Overseas it made $176 million for a global weekend total of $301 million. Although it debuted under estimates it was nothing to complain about. It still secured the second-best opening for an R-rated film, as well as the third-biggest debut of the year behind Marvel Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther. It also secured Fox its second-highest opening weekend in history.
With dueling Leonard Bernstein biopics in the works it looks as though the Martin Scorsese/Steven Spielberg produced, Bradley Cooper helmed adaptation, Bernstein, has a leg up on the Cary Fukunaga/Jake Gyllenhaal one. According to THR, Bernstein has won the exclusive rights to use Bernstein’s music.
THR reports that Jennifer Aniston will play America's first female president in Netflix's original movie entitled First Ladies. One Mississippi's Tig Notaro will star as her wife and is also co-writing the script. The political comedy centers on Beverly and Kasey Nicholson, America’s first female President and her wife, the First Lady, in a story that THR quotes: “promises to show that behind every great woman is another great woman.”
The first trailer was released for Shock and Awe, a movie being described as All the President’s Men for the 21st century. The movie is directed by Rob Reiner and stars Woody Harrelson, James Marsden and Tommy Lee Jones.
