Have you ever been to a really suspenseful movie, and you just have to pee, but you don’t want to miss anything? We all have. When Scream 2 came out, I thought there was a lull in the action and it was safe to pee. [SPOILER ALERT] It wasn’t safe to pee – I missed Dewey’s “death” and spent the next ten minutes wondering where he went.
Now you don’t have to wonder when is the best time to pee during a movie. Before you go, visit RunPee.com. RunPee gives you an approximate elapsed time and scene cues and even tells you how much time you have to get back to your seat. There’s even a summary of the action you’ll miss. It looks like the site is frequently updated as all the recent movies – Up, Terminator: Salvation and Drag Me to Hell, for example – are available.
RunPee was found on Lifehacker. If only it were available as an iPhone application…
The other really useful site – also found on Lifehacker – is MovieStinger.com. MovieStinger answers the pesky question that plagues every hardcore movie fan – to stay or not to stay? Sometimes movies have post-credits scenes (like Iron Man and the recent 3 endings on X-Men Origins: Wolverine), but it’s hard to guess if a movie will have an extra scene or not.
MovieStinger is kept up-to-date and lists movies and if they have scenes after the credits, extras during the credits, or nothing. Now you don’t have to sit in your seat and look for funny names in the credits waiting for a cut scene that will never come.
Those of you who didn’t like the Wolverine Origins film, may have still enjoyed Ryan Reynolds being Van Wilder being Wade Wilson. When I say that, it’s because Ryan Reynolds plays himself in everything he’s in, and himself is Van Wilder. And I love it.
The best news you’re going to hear all day, is that Fox has green lit a “Deadpool” spin off, based on the opening weekend of Wolverine. That means sometime next year, we’ll get to see an entire movie of Wade/Deadpool, and not 18 seconds of him that we got in Wolverine.
Press release from MTV News below:
MTV News has received official word that there is also a “Deadpool” solo movie in active development, with “Wolverine” actor Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Wade Wilson, Marvel’s mutant assassin. According to a source close to Fox, the “Deadpool” spin-off film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel, and will be “a complete exploration of this unique character — his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth.” The studio is currently seeking writers for the project.
Is this not the best news you’ve head so far today, or what?!
A ton of people are reporting about this, this morning, so I thought I’d chime in.
Those of you who saw Wolverine over the weekend, probably saw the “Logan in a bar” ending, after the credits. He’s apparently in Japan, and doesn’t know who he is.
According to some “inside information”, the studio may develop that as the next X-Men Origins movie. Not another character, as we previously believed, but as another Wolverine movie.
Is that what happens when your flick opens at $87 million? You immediately want to another one? While the film made a boatload of money, it’s not getting all that positively reviewed. Is that what they want? Another money maker, that leaves people with a less than optimal taste in their mouths?
I’m sure by now you’ve heard that Wolverine will have three different endings, depending on where you see the movie. This isn’t a ploy to get you to drive all over the country to get to see all three of them. Rest assured the “movie” only has one ending.
You’ll sit through Wolverine in its entirety before the “alternate” bits happen. These very short endings come after the credit, and are reportedly all just ties in to whichever movie they decide to make next.
They’re not important to the story of the film you’ve just watched. It’s just the studio’s idea to open the door for the next movie in the franchise, of which there’s apparently three different ones.
I’ve spoken with a few people that have seen the endings already, and the feedback I’ve gotten is pretty negative about all three. They’re being referred to as “sucky ending 1”, “less sucky ending” and “ending that didn’t suck as much as the other two.”
I plan on checking out the film on Saturday morning, and will report back as to what I thought after that. I’m not super excited about it, because I didn’t really love the X-men trilogy, but the trailer looks decent enough to go check out.
The second spot aired late last night, and made its way online shortly thereafter. It’s called “Brothers”, and further proves that this movie’s going to kick a whole lotta ass, and take a whole lotta names.
