#WidowsMovie Trailer Starring An All-Star Cast

Zazie Beets Cast As Domino In Deadpool Sequel

THR is reporting Atlanta break-out Zazie Beets will play Domino in the upcoming Deadpool sequel.

Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds, made the announcement via Twitter, with the caption "domino effect".

In Marvel's comic book mythology, Domino is a mercenary who mostly works on the side of the good guys. Debuting in the same issue as Deadpool himself (1991's New Mutants No. 98), she is another survivor of a government program to create the ultimate soldier. Instead of adamantium claws or hyper-active healing powers, she can affect probability itself, creating "good luck" for herself and those around her — something she's put to use serving alongside Cable, another fan-favorite X-character who'll be showing up in the new movie, but has yet to be cast.

Producers were looking to specifically cast a black or latina actress in the role of Domino, testing a variety of actresses but have appeared to land on Beetz.

Deadpool 2 will be directed by John Wick filmmaker David Leitch, with original Deadpool scripters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning the pen the follow-up for Fox, along with The Martian writer Drew Goddard. Simon Kinberg, Lauren Shuler Donner and Reynolds are set to produce.

After its February 2016 release, Deadpool became a run-away hit (and a surprise awards contender), grossing more than $780 million at the global box office, prompting the studio to expedite production on a sequel.

Beets plays Van in the Donald Glover's award-winning FX series, where she has emerged as a fan favorite. She will soon be seen in Chance the Rapper's horror-comedy Slice.

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
