Hope y’all had a relaxing weekend. Now let’s get this week started with the latest on Captain America: Civil War, including the affiliation of two of the film’s superheroes. We’ve also got a new photo from Deadpool in today’s Movie Morsels, as well as a new TV spot for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and more!
Captain America: Civil War
As you may have heard, Captain America: Civil War wrapped principal photography this weekend. But if you’re still wondering on which side of the Cap versus Iron Man battle the film’s heroes fall, we have new intel indicating Hawkeye will side with Steve Rogers while the new Spider-Man will align himself with Tony Stark. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Tom Holland, William Hurt, and Daniel Brühl, Captain America: Civil War is waged on May 6, 2016, in 3D and IMAX.
We’ve got ourselves a new image from Fox’s Deadpool today, featuring Wade Wilson engaged in an aerial assault! The Tim Miller-directed film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, Andre Tricoteux, and Leslie Uggams, debuts on February 12, 2016.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
This weekend we showed you a new clip from Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials here on Nerdist. Now we’ve got a brand-new TV spot to boot. Wes Ball’s sequel to last year’s dystopian hit stars Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Kaya Scodelario and Patricia Clarkson, the supporting cast was filled out with Rosa Salazar, Jacob Lofland, Aidan Gillen, Giancarlo Esposito, Barry Pepper, and Lili Taylor. It opens on September 18th.
Some Kind of Beautiful
Well, at least the titles accurate. Three extremely good-looking stars — Pierce Brosnan, Jessica Alba, and Salma Hayek — feature in the new romantic comedy Some Kind of Beautiful, directed by Tom Vaughan (Extraordinary Measures, What Happens in Vegas) and co-starring Ben McKenzie, Fred Melamed, Ivan Sergei, Malcolm McDowell, Lombardo Boyar, Merrin Dungey, Duncan Joiner, Lee Garlington, Robert Mailhouse, and Marlee Matlin. The film opened in theaters and On Demand on Friday, August 21st.
The Final Girls
Finally today… The trailer for The Final Girls arrived yesterday, and the new horror comedy looks just as awesome as we’d hoped it would. Can Malin Akerman, Taissa Farmiga, and Nina Dobrev survive this Todd Strauss-Schulson-helmed slasher spoof? We’ll find out when it opens on October 9th.
