Deadpool and Friends Want You to Believe in Your Self(ie) at their NYC Pop Up Museum

If you didn’t think the “selfie museum” craze could get any more ridiculous, just wait until Deadpool gets his [baby] hands on one of his very own!

Deadpool and Friends’ Believe in Your Selfie Museum, a limited run photo opp pop-up, makes the ultimate superhero landing in New York City’s West Village just in time to help fans celebrate the home entertainment release of the Deadpool 2 Super Duper $@%!#& Cut, on Digital August 7 and Blu-ray August 21.

This museum may not have 29 rooms, but it’s not all about size, ok? Nine distinct photo opps give fans the chance to take outrageous selfies recalling some of the Merc with a Mouth’s favorite things—from unicorns and rainbows to his most beloved X-Force members. Dive into Colossus’s big, shiny foam pit and even see what you would look like with a pair of freakishly small toddler legs!

Sequels Rule the Box Office as The Equalizer 2 Barely Edges Out Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

It was the battle of the sequels at the weekend box office and early reports have The Equalizer 2 winning the weekend with an estimated $35.8 million. It beat Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! which came in second with an estimated $34.4 million.

The Equalizer 2 topped the opening of the first film which earned $34.1 million for the first weekend. It received an “A” Cinemascore, again beating the originals “A-“. Internationally the film opened in 11 markets bringing in an estimated $3.3 million. The film has a long opening around the world wrapping up in October.

Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again also beat its first film by almost $7 million. It received an “A-” Cinemascore with 83% of the opening weekend audience was female. With little competition this summer, the film should do well. It opened in 41 markets and outperformed the original in 34 of those. It brought in $42.4 million for the foreign box office giving it a grand total of $76.8 million after its first weekend. That tops the budget of $75 million.

In third place was last weekend’s champ, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. It earned $23.2 million to bring its domestic gross to $91.1 million. Internationall it added $37.7 million to bring its overseas total to $115.6 million and $206.7 million worldwide. It still has a few openings well into August.

Ant-Man and the Wasp dropped 45% in its third weekend earning an estimated $16.1 million to bring its domestic total to $164.6 million. It earned $21.6 million internationally for an overseas total of $188.9 million and worldwide total of $353.5 million. The film will open in Germany, Austria, and Hungry next weekend, the UK August 2nd, Italy on August 14th, and Japan on August 31st. The film seems to be outpacing the original domestically but internationally we’ll have to wait and see after some of those openings. The UK drove a decent amount of earnings for the original some the comparison is difficult.

Rounding out the top five was Incredibles 2 which brought in $11.5 million to bring its domestic total to $557.3 million. It also earned $36.5 million internationally and worldwide it stands at $940.4 million. This film will be crossing the billion dollar mark.

In other comic films….

Deadpool 2 was #19 for the weekend earning $460,000 to bring its domestic total to $317.1 million and worldwide it has earned $732.9 million.

Avengers: Infinity War was right behind at #20 adding $402,000 to its total to bring it to $676.8 million domestically and $2.043 billion worldwide.

Black Panther added $25,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $699.9 million. We’re on our edge to see if it can cross $700 million domestically. Worldwide the film stands at $1.347 billion.

Next weekend sees the opening of a new comic based film, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. This one will be a contender for first though it goes up against Mission Impossible – Fallout. Expect the Titans to come in second with a possible surprise first place.

We’ll be back in an hour for an even deeper dive into this year’s comic adaptations.

Review: Deadpool #2

There’s something really awesome about Skottie Young leaving the fate of known, and some unknown, world in the hands of Deadpool. Deadpool #2 is just as fun as, well almost every other Deadpool comic. It’s s guilty pleasure that gives you the warm and fuzzies on a hot summer day. This issue finds our reluctant hero getting hit with Captain America’s shield, having lunch with some of his mall coworkers, getting sassed by Negasonic , going d-bag to d-bag with Iron Man, trying to save the world solo as a merc for hire and getting into a shootout with Avengers. Young serves up some peak Deadpool awesomeness and even with so much going on, there’s nothing unnecessary to the story or that seems disingenuous to the character.

I’m not a huge fan of what Nic Klein does with the art here most of the time. Most of the time. Panels that take place away from Pool are a bit murky, washed out and lack detail or design, while the panels with him are full of focus which would be hella jarring and disorientating if you’re just thumbing through it a comic store. I think that it would have made more sense to have the world not involving Deadpool be the one that was crisp and the world/panels he exists in be disorientated to showcase his frame of mind. If a reader is going to be pulled out of the story it makes more sense to have them pulled out when our fave anti-hero is already doing exactly that already. It’s an odd artistic choice because it takes some time to get back in when Deadpool’s not on a page. It pulls you from the story .

Overall the writing saves the day, it’s a classic Deadpool story complete with him, and his unicorn, running off half cocked to save the world for cash, because Iron Man is loaded. It’s a quick fun read that stays true to cannon and ends on the perfect panel to get us ready for the next issue.
