Deadpool looks to cut up the competition this weekend

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but this weekend sees the release of a little movie based on a comic book character that few expected to see back on the big screen. Will this Merc with a Mouth top the box office? Here’s our prediction:

After years of rumours, and a botched first appearance onscreen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ryan Reynolds finally brings his passion project, Deadpool to movie theatres, complete with X-Men cameos, and a hard R rating that keeps the character close to his violent and dirty roots. Amazingly, the film has been getting raves from critics, sitting with an 82% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes – better than Avengers: Age of Ultron for comparisons sake. The marketing has been huge around this one, and that may be the only real issue that could arise – there could be too much Deadpool out there and non-genre fans could be turned off. Regardless, for one weekend at least, the Merc with a Mouth should top the box office, with a solid $60 million debut.

The Ten Percent: Doctor Zhivago (1965)

Poster - Doctor Zhivago_02

“Ninety percent of everything is crud.” – Theodore Sturgeon

Hello, and welcome to another installment of The Ten Percent! Every two weeks, K. Dale Koontz and I use this space to take a look at the inverse of Sturgeon’s Law — the small portion of everything which is not crud. Sturgeon was right, of course. The vast majority of movies, television, writing, and art is crud, eminently forgettable and ultimately irrelevant, but there is always that tiny slice of the sublime. In this space, we’ve talked about comedy, drama, animation, horror, science fiction, musicals, and more. We get to do that because the Ten Percent isn’t limited by genre – these rare gems last because they are high quality productions which demand more of their viewer than simple passive reception.
