See the trailer for his new movie.
Ryan Reynolds goes from Deadpool to Dead Operative in his new crime thriller 'Criminal', starring Kevin Costner. While he's not the subject of the medical experiment this time (and doesn't survive into much of the movie), he plays a CIA agent whose mind is lost in the head of a psychotic killer.
Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot star in Criminal
Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner) is one of the most dangerous criminals America has ever seen, with an absolute lack of empathy and no regards for the consequences of his actions. In other words, he is the definition of a psychopath. Thus, that makes him the perfect candidate for a secret government operation - literally. He is forced to take part in one neuroscientist's (Tommy Lee Jones) experiment to transplant the mind of a respected CIA agent (Ryan Reynolds) who is now deceased into his own mind, in a bid to uncover vital information from the agent Bill Pope's incomplete mission.

As the story snakes south through the United States along the Mississippi River, this movie builds up a bleak, mopey vibe that's difficult to engage with. It's the story of two gambling addicts who think that the answer to all of their problems lies just around the next bend in the river, and it's sharply well written and directed, with astute performances from the lead actors. But it's also relentlessly grim and unsympathetic.
They start their journey in Iowa, where estate agent Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) is at the end of his rope when he meets cocky gambler Curtis (Ryan Reynolds). There's a spark of recognition between them, as Gerry sees Curtis as himself 10 years younger, thinking maybe he can kickstart his life again. So they hit the road together, heading for a high-stakes poker game in New Orleans. Along the way, they stop to visit Curtis' favourite prostitute (Sienna Miller) in St. Louis and Gerry's bitter ex-wife (Robin Weigert) in Little Rock. And in between, they visit Memphis to win some extra cash. But by the time they reach New Orleans, things are starting to look desperate again.

Ryan Reynolds was forced to have a “strongly worded” conversation with one of his childhood friends after he discovered he was trying to sell his daughter’s baby pictures.
Ryan Reynolds became a father in December of last year. With broken sleep, it’s a difficult time physically for any new parent but Reynolds also had to contend with an emotional blow when he discovered his childhood friend was trying to make a quick buck by shopping pictures of his new-born daughter to media outlets.
Ryan Reynolds at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2015.
He also spoke about how he had to cut a close friend out of his life for trying to sell pictures of his daughter James to media outlets.
First time father Ryan Reynolds has been talking about how surprised he is that he and his wife Blake Lively have been dealing with parenthood without the help of a nanny. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the Self/Less star has spoken about his “weirdly endless supply of patience” at night-time baby duties.
It’s been nine months since he and his wife welcomed their daughter James into the world, but the gruelling regime of night-time feedings hasn’t gotten the better of him yet. “I have no problem waking up five times in the middle of the night and changing diapers, and as exhausted as you get, I have this stupid grin on my face all the time,” he said.
Ryan Reynolds gave an interview to GQ
Blake Lively had to clarify some remarks she made about Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video.
Blake Lively, the 28-year-old Age of Adaline actor and wife of Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t mocking Taylor Swift with her recent Instagram post. Lively posted a picture in which she joked – as she later clarified in good humour – about being part of a music video for John Legend’s cover of Swift single ‘Bad Blood’.
Blake Lively appearing on Good Morning America in Times Square, New York, in April 2015.
Gerry's gambling addiction has gotten way out of hand. He's already lost everything in his quest for winning, so now he's thousands of dollars in debt to nearly everybody he knows. Continually losing doesn't stop him hitting the casino, but when he meets casual poker player Curtis - who unlike Gerry doesn't let a desire for the win take over his life - he forms an unlikely bond and finds that his luck is beginning to turn, but not necessarily in the money stakes. The pair team up in order to go for the big bucks on New Orleans' legendary poker scene, and Curtis soon finds that Gerry needs something big to pull him out of the rut that is his life. He's got to learn that there's more to life than winning, but is he willing to take a gamble on the advice of his mysterious new friend?

Wade Wilson isn't your average superhero. Indeed, he has fewer morals and a brutal villainous streak that makes him particularly formidable to his many enemies. After undergoing horrific abuse as an experimental subject while working as a soldier in the Special Forces, he has been left deformed and dangerously unstable, with incredible supernatural abilities that allow him to heal at an accelerated rate. Now a mercenary with a feverish taste for blood, Wilson becomes the anti-hero Deadpool and takes his fascination with pain to the lengths of revenge, determined to get back at the person who mutilated him and ruined his life. Whimsical musings aside, Deadpool is lethal and will stop at nothing to punish his tormentors.

He's becoming ever more versatile with his latest filmography.
As a new father, Ryan Reynolds has been re-evaluating his career even as he continues to make movies at a rather brisk pace. He has three films out this year and two more in the can. His latest release is Tarsem Singh's Self/Less, a thriller with a sci-fi twist that involves Ben Kingsley's character implanting his consciousness into Reynolds' younger, fitter body.
Ryan Reynolds' latest movie venture is this sci-fi thriller 'Self/Less'
"I think I'm in a unique position," Reynolds says, "in the fact that I get to star in dramas, comedies and suspense and action films. As I've gotten older, my career has become centred on working with people I would like to collaborate with."
Continue reading: Self/Less And Deadpool Make Ryan Reynolds Ponder Immortality
An intriguing premise keeps the audience gripped for about 20 minutes before the movie runs out of steam. Which is far too early. Despite the always-engaging presence of Ryan Reynolds, this fantastical thriller is slick enough to hold the attention, but fails because it's unable to generate any interest in the central characters. And instead of exploring the fascinating issues the story raises, the filmmakers instead fall back on irrelevant violence.
The story opens as billionaire Manhattan businessman Damien (Ben Kingsley) discovers he has six months to live. But he has heard about a new medical procedure called "shedding", in which his mind is implanted in a lab-grown body. At $250 million, it seems like a bargain, so he signs up with Dr Allbright (Matthew Goode) and prepares to abandon his old life for a new one. He wakes up in New Orleans as Edward (Reynolds), and begins to adjust to his fit new 35-year-old body. But after he misses his adjustment meds one day he has a series of bewildering flashbacks that make him wonder about the true nature of the shedding process. Maybe his new body wasn't so "new" after all. So he goes looking for answers, which involves teaming up with Madeline (Natalie Martinez) and seeking help from his business partner Martin (Victor Garber).
There are all kinds of intriguing themes swirling through this set-up, including issues of identity and mortality. But writers David and Alex Pastor seem uninterested in exploring any of this in lieu of a much more simplistic morality tale packed with continual shoot-out and chase scenes, plus far too much body-swapping. All of this is produced to a very high standard by director Tarsem Singh, who has a reputation for seriously stylish cinema (see The Fall or The Cell). He adds a strong edge to every scene, with intriguingly haunting editing choices and camerawork that add plenty of tension and uncertainty even if the plot itself is utterly predictable.

Blake Lively shared a beautiful picture of her breastfeeding her daughter, James, on Instagram on Thursday (16th July).
Blake Lively is proving, as if there should be any doubt, you can be a hands-on mum and continue having a successful career. She also had a positive message to add about breastfeeding. The 27-year-old beauty shared a picture on Instagram in which she is seen, wearing a bikini, breastfeeding her daughter James.

He's also set to face-off against Deadpool next year as Ajax.
Memories from Comic-Con 2015 may be centred around 'Suicide Squad' and 'Batman v Superman', but let's not forget what Marvel had in store this year; namely 'Deadpool' starring Ryan Reynolds and Ed Skrein. Wait, who was that last one?
Ed Skrein to star alongside Ryan Reynolds in 'Deadpool'
'Who is Ed Skrein?' is the question on a lot of people's lips after his appearance at San Diego Comic-Con International. Ryan Reynolds may not be such a surprise to play Deadpool, given his comic-book movie history ('Green Lantern', 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', 'Blade: Trinity'), but an unfamiliar face linked to his arch-nemesis Ajax has just added to the excitement.

Ryan Reynolds was greeted with a huge ovation as he took to the stage at Hall H for the Deadpool Comic Con panel, which ended up being one of the highlights of an already very newsworthy convention.

The trailer was everything fans could have hoped for, with action scenes, swearing, a bit of sex and of course lots and lots of humour.

After having a child herself, Blake Lively had a far easier time portraying the character of a mother - even if her daughter was older than her by that point.
In her new film 'The Age of Adaline', Blake Lively plays a woman who stops ageing at age 29, watching her daughter grow up into her 80s. She made the film while she was pregnant with her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds, and their daughter James was born in December.

"Having a baby is just living in the constant unexpected," she says of the experience. "You never know when you're going to get crapped on or when you're going to get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics. It might be like living with a drug addict!"

The 27 year old actress has been speaking about the demands of motherhood as she promotes her new movie, comparing it to ‘living with a drug addict’ as you’re faced with the ‘constant unexpected’.

"Unfortunately I have not been given an update and don't know the outcome or how things have progressed with confirming who the driver is."

This fascinating true story is strong enough to hold up against the formulaic Hollywood treatment, boosted by another riveting performance from Helen Mirren. She adds some badly needed prickly humour to the film, which continually resorts to unsophisticated sentimentality as it traces a remarkable series of real events. And it helps that the story has some intriguing things to say about both art and history.
It opens in 1998 Los Angeles, where Maria Altmann (Mirren) has discovered some documents in her late sister's belongings that refer to a beloved portrait of their Aunt Adele (Antje Traue in flashbacks). The problem is that the painting is Gustav Klimt's Woman in Gold, which is regarded as the "Mona Lisa of Austria" and held in pride of place in the national gallery. Since Austria has begun restoring art stolen from its citizens by the Nazis, Maria hires novice family-friend lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds), who quickly realises the futility of the case. But they travel to Vienna to begin the process, getting some help navigating the system from local journalist Hubertus (Daniel Bruhl). Sure enough, the Austrian government fights Maria at every step of the way.
The compelling argument in this film is that if Austria acknowledges that this national treasure was stolen, it implicates the government and the population in complicity with the Nazis. And that's something no one is willing to do. There's also of course the issue of greed, since Woman in Gold is worth $100 million. But Maria's simple question is why the painting's value or status matter when its true ownership is so clear. Director Simon Curtis and writer Alexi Kaye Campbell wisely dash through the series of hearings, court cases and appeals, while emphasising this undeniable fact of the case. Although this also simplifies most scenes into little more than "Nazis bad, Jews good". While the flashbacks to Maria's past are moving and informative, Randy's sideplots feel irrelevant and undercooked, featuring his pregnant wife (Katie Holmes) and sardonic boss (Charles Dance).

Blake Lively jealous? Surely not! The 27-year-old actress has poked fun at her husband Ryan Reynolds, who certainly seems taken with his Woman in Gold co-star, Helen Mirren. Lively shared her mock concerns with fans on Instagram on Saturday (4th April).

Ryan Reynolds has shared the first official photograph of Deadpool, the upcoming film in which he stars as conflicted anti-hero Wade Wilson A.K.A. Deadpool.

When the Nazis took over Vienna prior to the Second World War, they stole countless, priceless artefacts. One of these artefacts was the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, and an Austrian Holocaust survivor has the perfect claim to it. Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren) hires Randol Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds), a lawyer of Austrian decent, to help her become once again acquainted with the famous painting of her aunt. The problem is, that the painting is held in a Vienna art gallery, and the Austrian government are adamant in keeping the national treasure. Altmann, on the other hand, is desperate to get back what is rightfully hers.

Utterly bonkers, this movie confounds any attempt to categorise it, blending comedy, romance, horror and drama to become a true one-off. And it maintains such a darkly playful tone that it's impossible not to smile even as things turn rather hideously nasty. Against all odds, these contradicting moods come together into something surprisingly involving, thanks to skilled director Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) and clever writer Michael R. Perry. Their approach is so inventive that it's impossible to guess what might happen next.
Set in a small industrial town, the story centres on Jerry (Ryan Reynolds), who was set up with a job in a bathtub factory after his release from a psychiatric institute. Overseen by therapist (Jacki Weaver), Jerry is settling in nicely. He has a crush on Fiona (Gemma Arterton) in accounting, even though it's actually her office colleague Lisa (Anna Kendrick) who likes him. But no one realises that he has gone off his meds and is starting to listen to advice coming from his lovable dog Bosco and his evil cat Mr Whiskers. What they tell him to do is pretty horrific, but he thinks that this is the only way to get his life back on track.
Where the plot goes is seriously grisly, but it's played out by the cast and filmmakers in a blackly comical way that's highly stylised, seeing everything through Jerry's warped perspective. The question is whether he's a serial killer, an insane criminal or an emotionally tormented young man. Whatever, the film is a remarkably internalised exploration of mental illness, because the tone refuses to let us off the hook. And because all of the performances are riotously funny, bridging the gaps between the humour, romance and violence.
