The couple urge people to undergo local first aid classes.
There are some important skills a parent must learn regardless of whether or not they'll ever need it. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are trying to encourage new parents to take classes in child CPR - just in case they one day have to save their child's life.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively at the 2017 Met Gala
Becoming a parent means learning a lot of new skills as you go along. Something that you are not going to want to learn as you go, however, is child first aid - more specifically CPR. Hopefully, neither Blake Lively nor Ryan Reynolds will ever be forced to perform this life-saving procedure on either of their daughters; Ines and James; but that doesn't mean they don't need to be prepared.

Reynolds praised his wife while being interviewed for Humans of New York at the 2017 Met Gala in New York.
The glamorous couple attended the annual Met Gala on Monday evening (May 1st) in New York City, and were photographed by Humans of New York’s Brandon Stanton, as part of the popular photoblog that was established in 2010.
“She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy,” Reynolds said about his wife of five years and mother of his two children. “She'll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old. And she's made me a more empathetic person.”

'Deadpool 2' gets an official release date.
The release date for the eagerly anticipated 'Deadpool 2' has finally been confirmed, with principal photography set to begin this summer. The sequel is set to arrive in 2018 with David Leitch at the helm, and Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin among the cast.
Ryan Reynolds returns as Deadpool
At the weekend, 20th Century Fox revealed a summer premiere date for the Marvel sequel which comes to theatres next year. Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapicic and Ryan Reynolds return to the franchise as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Colossus and Deadpool respectively, with new cast members having also been announced.
Continue reading: It's Official: 'Deadpool 2' Is Coming In Summer 2018
Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld says that the chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Zazie Beetz in upcoming Marvel movie 'Deadpool 2' needs to be "spectacular".
It's hard to think about the world of comic book movies without 'Deadpool' immediately springing to mind. The film was one of 2016's biggest successes, despite being slapped with an R-rating in the US, and went on to break all sorts of records while catapulting Ryan Reynolds into the world of much-adored superheroes.
Ryan Reynolds as Marvel Comics character Deadpool
Earlier this year, Reynolds announced the news that Zazie Beetz had joined the cast of 'Deadpool 2' in a now-deleted tweet, using dominoes to reveal that she'd be taking on the character Domino.
Like a mash-up of Alien and Gravity, this ripping sci-fi horror movie is very effective at generating tension and terror. And it helps that an adept cast is on board to give some weight to characters who are rather thinly written. The script, by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, keeps everything lean and mean, concentrating on the scary stuff while ignoring any thematic depth or topicality. But director Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) keeps it moving briskly.
It's set on board the International Space Station, where a specialised six-person crew is examining new soil samples from Mars. Science officer Hugh (Ariyon Bakare) finds alien life in the dirt, and watches in amazement as the cells grow and cooperate to create an interactive jellyfish-like creature, which schoolchildren on Earth name Calvin. Infectious disease doctors David and Miranda (Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson) are concerned that this life-form remains contained in the lab. So Captain Kat (Olga Dihovichnaya) and technicians Roy and Sho (Ryan Reynolds and Hiroyuki Sanada) set out to lock things down. But of course, this proves trickier than they thought it would be.
What follows is, unsurprisingly, a stalker slasher movie in which the crew members go down one by one. Calvin is a quick learner, and grows into a seriously menacing creature, complete with the silly addition of a kind of evil digital face. It also gets a few corny point of view camera angles. But mainly Espinosa holds his nerve, maintaining a believable sense of the science and the setting as things get increasingly out of control. Each terrifying set piece is followed by a brief moment of silence in which the characters (and audience) catch their breath. This also allows them to add one back story detail per person, in an attempt to stir up some emotional connection. But it doesn't really matter once the violent mayhem kicks into gear again.

The actress marched in New York City on Saturday.
Blake Lively has written a moving post on Instagram, explaining why she decided to take part in the Women’s March in New York City on Saturday.
The actress shared a photo of herself on Instagram posing beside a little girl in a wheelchair holding a sign which read, "Let's make American kind again,” and explained that as a mom of two girls, the march was particularly important to her.
Yet another award ceremony for this Marvel adventure.
The nominations for theatrical and documentary screenplays have been announced for the 69th Writers Guild of America Awards, with 'Deadpool' leading as one of the strong contenders for Best Adapted Screenplay. Based on the 'X-Men' comic book series, the movie was a critically acclaimed smash last year.
Deadpool lands Writers Guild of America Award nomination
'Deadpool' has added yet another nomination to its growing list of recognition. While also being up for Best Motion Picture and with star Ryan Reynolds up for Best Performance by an Actor at the 2017 Golden Globes, the Marvel comedy is also nominated for two People's Choice Awards, a Jupiter Award and a Casting Society of America prize.
Reynolds has previously said that his 'Deadpool' role caused him a great deal of stress and anxiety before the film was released.
Ryan Reynolds has credited his wife Blake Lively for keeping him “sane” during the most stressful and difficult periods of his career, particularly as he prepared for Deadpool, the actor has said in a new interview.
The 40 year old actor has been nominated for the Golden Globes for his role as the masked anti-hero, in what is his first major awards nomination in the Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) category. He has recently won the Critics’ Choice Award for the same role, a good indicator that he’ll be scooping more prizes in the near future.
However, the Wade Wilson / Deadpool role caused Reynolds a great deal of anxiety long before this, aggravating a condition he’s battled for his whole life.

A report by The Wrap had suggested that Deadpool would be making a cameo appearance in 'Logan' - but Reynolds squashed the rumour on Twitter.
Sorry, Deadpool fans – it looks as if recent reports that Ryan Reynolds’ masked anti-hero will not be making an appearance in the forthcoming movie Logan after all, with the actor himself taking to Twitter to squash the rumours.
On Wednesday (December 28th), a report by movie website The Wrap suggested that Reynolds had donned his mask to shoot a scene for the new film, which is due out in March 2017.
However, the Canadian actor responded to a fan who asked him directly on Twitter whether the rumours were true. “Sadly, not true. Prisoner 24601 is on a solo mission,” he wrote, referring to the movie’s star Hugh Jackman’s prisoner number when he played Jean Valjean in the movie version of Les Miserables.

He dedicates his Entertainer of the Year award to sick kids.
Ryan Reynolds proved that he has a serious side to him when he accepted the Entertainer of the Year Award this weekend at the Critics' Choice Awards where he also won Best Actor in a Comedy and was nominated for Best Actor in an Action Movie. He dedicated his gong to kids with cancer.
Ryan Reynolds' Critics' Choice speech was pretty adorable
The 'Deadpool' star won Entertainment Weekly's Entertainer of the Year at the 22nd annual Critics' Choice Awards last night (December 11th 2016) but took the opportunity to take the spotlight off himself for a while and onto all the children who are suffereing from cancer and other illnesses in hospital.

Blake Lively appears to have forgiven him.
It's safe to say that Blake Lively cannot trust hubby Ryan Reynolds to keep a secret. The actor confirmed that his 4-week-old second child was a girl during his appearance on 'Conan' this week, and thus suffered the wrath of his secretive wife. Top marks for his apology though.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have another daughter
Two weeks ago, the 'Deadpool' star posted a very much not unusual joke about his parenthood issues on Twitter, but this time he revealed way too much information than he was allowed to. To make matters worse, he then categorically confirmed that he had two daughters to Conan O'Brien on Wednesday (November 2nd 2016), quipping about the oestrogen levels in his house.
The actor went on 'Conan' with a new love story proposition.
It's not exactly Nicholas Sparks but it'll do. Ryan Reynolds and Conan O'Brien shared a very enthusiastic smooch during a skit on TBS' 'Conan' where the actor was pretending to promote his new film 'The Notebook 2'. Gotta say, stellar acting from both of them.
Ryan Reynolds makes out with Conan
'Deadpool' star Ryan played a game on 'Conan' where he would read out something he was promoting and everyone had to guess whether or not it was real. They ranged from ham underwear and a new documentary called 'Dolphins And How To Stop Them', to parenting book '10 Easy Steps To Lower Your Child's Self-Esteem' and children's song album 'Civil War Wound Sing-Along'. But the main event was his latest movie 'The Notebook 2'.
Swift enjoyed a Halloween party with her squad.
Taylor Swift’s been keeping a pretty low profile in the couple of months since she and Tom Hiddleston split, but if there’s one thing that’ll always bring her out of hiding, it’s a public holiday, and this Halloween she went out on the town in style – dressed in Ryan Reynolds’ actual Deadpool costume.
The 27 year old singer and her star-studded squad made a great night of it on Monday, as she and her pals got together in New York for a party, capturing the moment on Instagram.
On board the International Space Station, a group of astronauts and scientists are risking their lives in order to study various outer worldly scenarios. When the team are sent a pod by an exploration vessel based on a planet Mars, the delivery process is risky but the skilled engineers manage to intercept the pod with little issue.
As the team re-group and begin to investigate the findings of the mission, not one of the crew members expects what has been delivered to them. The team of six unbelievably find that the Mars rover has found a form of life. A primitive large single cell; without expecting to, the team appear to have just proven that life on other planets is possible and they're the first ones to see exactly what it is.
Lead by a British scientist, the team quarantine the sample and begin to culture and nurture it in a bid to discover what the cell is part of. Everyone on the Space Station is overwhelmed and equally intrigued by the discovery and the secrets it holds but as they soon realise, the lifeform is far more dangerous than any of them could ever comprehended and it soon wishes to take over its new host.

The Hollywood couple are apparently pregnant again.
There's happiness all round as it's announced that Blake Lively is pregnant with her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds; news that comes in the wake of Eva Mendes' and Ryan Gosling's similarly happy news today (April 15th 2016) regarding their second pregnancy. So many Hollywood babies!

'Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan', a source 'close to the actress' told People Magazine.

Almost criminally entertaining, this preposterous thriller mixes buckets of humour and emotion into the violent, twisty action. And Kevin Costner gets his best role in years, a remarkably complex character who's unpredictable and thoroughly engaging. So even as the story grows increasingly ridiculous, the film remains both gripping and a lot of fun.
It's set in London, where hot CIA operative Bill (Ryan Reynolds) is on the trail of an evil anarchist (Jordi Molla) when he's captured, tortured and killed. To stop an imminent attack, the CIA chief Wells (Gary Oldman) needs to know what Bill was working on. So he calls in scientist Franks (Tommy Lee Jones), who has been experimenting with transferring memories from brain to brain in animals. For his first human trial, he copies Bill's dying memories into the only suitable brain available on such short notice: psycho killer Jericho (Kevin Costner), who's serving a death sentence in prison. And now Jericho is desperate to sort out the chaos in his head.
Director Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) keeps everything moving so briskly that there isn't time to stop and think about how silly the premise is. All of these characters act on their basest impulses, never thinking through anything before they charge into the next situation. Viewers who try to make sense of the plot, or of London's geography, will find their brains aching like Jericho's. So it's better to just hang on and enjoy the ride. The film's edgy, urgent tone adds the illusion of depth amid the mindlessly brutal violence, while the formidable cast adds weight to a variety of rather thinly drawn characters, from Oldman's bluster to Jones' wry wit. Only Costner gets some real depth to play with, and Jericho is constantly surprising, mixing a killer instinct with brainy invention and some properly dark emotions. His scenes with Gal Gadot (as Bill's wife) are unnervingly tense and moving.

Never forget that Batman was once Daredevil and Deadpool was once The Green Lantern.
When Ben Affleck was announced as taking the role of Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, many comic book fans rolled their eyes. It wasn’t necessarily because they disliked Affleck, it was more because there was still a bad taste in their mouths from 2003’s Daredevil. But as Ryan Reynolds proved earlier this year, redemption in the world of superhero movies is entirely possible and these actors have certainly repented for their past comic book sins.

Everyone's favourite categories have a few surprises.
The MTV Movie Award nominees are upon us and with it a few more stars that haven't yet been recognised for their 2015 efforts at the major film events so far. Of course, we went straight to the Best Fight and Best Kiss list - and we weren't disappointed.
Leonardo Dicaprio can take on any bear
Of course, the number one contender for Best Fight is Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, who's character Hugh Glass fought a bear in 'The Revenant'; a jaw-dropping scene for anyone who got chance to see it at theaters. But then you've got Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa and Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' which was pretty intense, with the former putting up a damn good fight against the ultimately glorious latter. More girl on guy action came with 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' - Rey (Daisy Ridley) vs. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) - which actually leads the list with 10 nominations.
Ryan Reynolds' foul mouth ant-hero is breaking records all over the globe.

After his starring turn in The Green Lantern tanked at the box office, critics were surprised that Ryan Reynolds was pushing for a solo movie based on his Deadpool character from another flop, 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Not only does Reynolds have no regrets about The Green Lantern, but he felt strongly that Deadpool hadn't been given a fair shake in the Wolverine movie. So as a producer, Reynolds set out to make a stand-alone Deadpool film that stuck to the anarchic tone of the comics, starting with a strong script by Rob Liefeld and Rhett Reese and a dedicated director in Tim Miller. But the project got stuck in development for six long years.
"Honestly, I've got to give credit to Tim there, because he kept the faith in a way that I didn't," Reynolds says. "There was a time where I thought, 'I've just got to let it go.' It was like the worst relationship I'd ever been in. It was on-off, on-off. Then we created this test footage that I thought spoke volumes about the character and what we could do with it."
Continue reading: Deadpool Was Ryan Reynolds' Passion Project
Both the filmmakers and the characters on-screen are so pleased with themselves that this might just be the smuggest movie ever made. Thankfully, it's also very funny. It's a passion project for actor-producer Ryan Reynolds, who throws himself fully into his role as a snarky mercenary who becomes an indestructible superhero with nothing to lose. And in addition to a constant stream of irreverent humour, he underscores the film's snarkiness with some real emotion.
Reynolds plays Wade, a thug for hire who works out of a bar run by his comical pal Weasel (T.J. Miller), and when he meets fellow mercenary Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), it's love at first sight. The feisty pair match each other with sharp tongues and brutal physicality, but their romance is shaken when Wade is secretly diagnosed with end-stage cancer. His only hope lies in a shady treatment from the ropey Ajax (Ed Skrein) and his sidekick Angel Dust (Gina Carano), which turns out to literally be torture. Sure, it cures his cancer and sparks his innate mutant healing power, but it leaves him hideously scarred. As he sets out to get revenge, two young X-Men (Brianna Hildebrand's Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Stefan Kapcic's Colossus) try to recruit him to their cause. And Wade, now known as Deadpool, tries to work up the nerve to show Vanessa what's left of him.
All of this is revealed early on, as Wade's back-story is recounted in a series of flashbacks in the middle of a massive opening action sequence. And once we're caught up, the story heads into a succession of massive climactic action sequences. Fortunately, there are some quieter moments in between that are both hilarious and involving. Reynolds effortlessly bridges the film's wild mood swings. His sassy attitude and feisty physicality feed cleverly into his riveting chemistry with Baccarin, whose character starts off strongly before dissolving into the standard hackneyed girlfriend role.

The 39 year old actor, and former Sexiest Man Alive winner, spends much of the new Marvel movie behind a superhero mask as his character is horribly disfigured after botched medical experimentation. While his wife said the image of him as Deadpool wouldn’t change her impression of him, Reynolds said that his daughter most definitely didn’t feel the same way.

With 'The Captive' having finally arrived in US cinemas, it's worth taking a look at what Ryan Reynold's latest film is all about.
'The Captive' is the latest film from Atom Egoyan, known for 1997's 'The Sweet Hereafter', 1994's 'Exotica' and 2005's 'Where the Truth Lies'. The story follows Reynolds character after he finds his daughter has gone missing. After pulling into the wrong diner at the wrong time, Matthew (Ryan Reynolds) returns to his car to find his daughter Cass (Alexia Fast) no longer there. His wife, Tina (Mireille Enos) blames him for the disappearance. When the police become involved, they steadily uncover a dark mystery surrounding the case.
'The Captive' stars Ryan Raynolds.
Mireille Enos recently starred alongside Brad Pitt as his character's wife in 2013's 'World War Z'. She has also appeared in 'Gangster Squad', and has had a starring role in 'The Killing' since 2011. In 'The Captive', she once again portrays a mother and wife, desperately trying to protect her child. Alexia Fast, who plays the daughter of Enos and Reynold's characters, is probably best known for appearing the 2012 Tom Cruise film 'Jack Reacher'. She also portrayed a leading role in the television series 'Manhattan' and her work in 'The Captive' earned the film its Joey Award.
Matthew is a typical loving father who takes a day trip with his young daughter Cassandra in his truck, stopping off at a roadside diner along the way to pick up pie for lunch. He's only gone a few minutes but by the time he returns to his vehicle he discovers that Cass is gone. She's nowhere to be found, and to make matters worse, when he reports her disappearance as an abduction to the police he is the first suspect in the case. The incident puts a deep strain on his marriage to her mother Tina, who doesn't know whether to blame him for letting her out of his sight or suspect his involvement herself. Some years later, they are still searching, but when detectives Nicole and Jeffrey find new leads, Matthew becomes determined to find out exactly where his daughter is being held.

Blake Lively, former Gossip Girl actress and wife of Ryan Reynolds, has a figure women worldwide would - and do- pay money for. Yet the 26-year-old actress has an unusual secret for acquiring her figure: to shun the gym and eat chocolate!
Blake Lively eats chocolate everyday.

'Green Lantern' star Ryan Reynolds showed up at the 'Turbo' premiere in the AMC Loews Lincoln Square in New York. He plays the title character in the hilarious animated flick; a snail who wishes to defy his nature and become faster than the speediest IndyCar racer in the world.
Snoop Lion, Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds are interviewed at a press junket for their new movie 'Turbo' in which they play animated snails with dreams of becoming racers. They are asked about what attracted them to the role, the implications of being an 'underdog' and their favourite underdog characters.
Kyra Sedgwick, wife of actor Kevin Bacon, sliced the tip of her finger off on Saturday night (29th June 2013). She was, according to Bacon who posted pictures of her injury online, in the process of cutting kale when she obtained the injury.
Kevin Bacon posted pictures of his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, online after she accidently sliced the tip of her finger off. She was cutting kale when the injury occurred. The pictures were posted on Saturday evening (29th June) on Bacon's WhoSay account.

One picture shows his wife sitting looking understandably miserable on a hospital bed holding up her bandaged hand. Bacon tagged his wife in the picture and added the comment "in the ER. Kale isn't ALLWAYS HEALTHY... if you chop the end of your finger off".

Turbo has big dreams for such a small garden snail; dreams that stretch beyond his regular, sluggish, plant-pot dwelling life. He wants to become the fastest mover in the world, even faster than his favourite racing driver, and compete at the IndyCar races, but, as nature would have it, no matter how much training he does, he simply can't gather speed. However, one day, while gazing at the blurry flow of traffic on a highway, his wish comes true when he is sucked into the back of a vehicle and submerged in a tank of nitrous oxide. On making an escape, he finds himself glowing like a lightbulb and zooming past his inching friends a hundred times faster than he ever believed was possible. On his journey to speedy stardom, he meets Whiplash, Skidmark, Burn, Smooth Move and White Shadow; a crew of other racer wannabes who take him under their wings.

Turbo might be just your average garden snail but there's one thing that sets him apart from all his friends; he is tired of the slowness of life and has dreams of becoming the fastest creature in the world. While his friend Chet does everything within his power to convince him that he should enjoy the life he has and forget his impossible aspirations. However, while Turbo wistfully watches the flow of traffic on the highway, he makes a wish that unexpectedly defies biology. He is sucked into the engine of a racing car and is subsequently submerged in a tank of nitrous oxide which causes him to glow brightly. When he realises that it has also given him the ability to move at an extraordinary pace, he is determined to compete at the IndyCar races and become the first snail in history to win in a vehicular race.

The first official trailer for the upcoming summer action flick R.I.P.D. has gone online.
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds are starring in one of the summers most anticipated action blockbusters, R.I.P.D. and after months of waiting the first trailer for the supernatural, action-packed adventure has gone viral. The buddy cop film will be released in cinemas, in 3-D of course, by Universal Pictures on July 19 this year.
R.I.P.D. (which stands for 'Rest in Peace Department') has been adapted from the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name and follows recently deceased police officer, Nick Walker (Reynolds), who was killed in the line of duty at the prime of his career only to find himself being drafted in to police paranormal activity from beyond the grave. Teamed with the battle-scarred sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges), it's up to these two to catch foul souls that have managed to escape judgment when they were in limbo whilst Reynold's character also tries to track down the man who killed him and drew him into this bizarre world in the first place.

The Croods is witty with sharp characters who are well written, voiced and drawn while Jack the Giant Slayer is smarter and funnier than we expect. We are also rather excited by a first look at Kick Ass 2 as well as a chilling new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness.
This week's big global release is the DreamWorks animated prehistoric comedy-adventure The Croods, led by an all-star vocal cast including Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds. Look for a huge push for must-have spin-off merchandise for this one, as it's packed with cuddly creatures. And hope it does well at the box office, because it would make a great franchise too.
Doing the publicity rounds this week, Gerard Butler has been out promoting his new White House thriller Olympus Has Fallen. Flitting between New York and Los Angeles to appear on every chat show possible, it's no wonder that he was somewhat fed-up by the time he reached David Letterman's Manhattan studio. Of course, the paparazzi caught it on camera as he lost his patience with a fan trying to get multiple autographs. But he manages to recovers his usual charm.
Turbo is a regular garden snail who, unlike his friends, is bored of living his life at a. well, snail's pace. As much as his friends and family try to convince him that his dreams of becoming a super-fast racer are, frankly, ridiculous and utterly fruitless, he refuses to give up hope and makes a wish that is set to change his life forever. After accidently finding himself taking a ride on the roof of the racing car of one of the fastest racers in the world, he finds himself flying into a tank of nitrous oxide which transforms his genetic code and makes him one of the fastest moving creatures on Earth, putting other wannabe snail racers to shame.
'Turbo' is the hilarious and delightful new animated movie from DreamWorks about the power of hope and determination in striving to achieve your dreams. It is David Soren's directorial feature film debut, though he has worked on a string of other animated flicks in other departments. He also co-wrote 'Turbo' with Darren Lemke ('Jack the Giant Slayer', 'Shrek Forever After') and Robert D. Siegel ('The Wrestler', 'Big Fan'). It is scheduled to be released in UK cinemas this Autumn on October 18th 2013.
Cleverly blending a rebellious teen comedy with an animated prehistoric adventure, this witty film wins us over with sharp characters who are written, voiced and drawn with plenty of personality. It may be yet another hyperactive, silly romp, but the attention to detail is extraordinary, and the rather overfamiliar message is genuinely inspiring.
The Crood family has survived the primordial chaos because dad Grug (Cage) keeps them in a constant state of fear, never letting them out of the cave after dark. There's just too much out there that wants to eat them! But teen daughter Eep (Stone) is restless to explore the world. Her mum Ugga (Keener) has her hands full tending to feral baby Sandy (Thom), lunkheaded pre-teen brother Thunk (Duke) and feisty Gran (Leachman), so Eep sneaks out in the middle of the night. There she meets Guy (Reynolds), a slightly more evolved human who has mastered fire and has what sound like radical ideas about survival. Grog is not happy about this at all. But when the world starts shifting around them, he has little choice but to allow his family to follow this new kid into what is clearly certain death.
Only of course, this being a comical cartoon, we know they'll all be fine, even though most of their adventures are seriously perilous. Filmmakers De Micco (Space Chimps) and Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon) create a lavishly imagined world of mash-up creatures that seem like lost links in the evolutionary chain. Gigantic predatory kittens, mouse-sized elephants, crocodile puppies and walking whales are not only hilarious, but they make us want to buy a plush version all our own. In other words, the film is a riot of marketing possibilities, including the promise of a long-running franchise.

Turbo is a garden snail with big dreams of becoming the speediest snail in the world. He is seen as a figure of embarrassment among his snail community, his family and his friends for rejecting their slow and steady way of life but is nonetheless determined, through an intensive training routine, to become like his all-time favourite idol, Guy Gagne; a Indianapolis 500 racing champion for IndyCar. One day, his treasured dreams seem set to be realised when, following a freak incident, he develops an incredible superpower that allows him to move at a mind-blowing pace giving him the chance to truly compete at the IndyCar races and win the Indy 500 champion title for himself.
'Turbo' is a wonderful animated family comedy from DreamWorks about determination, hope and achieving your dreams. It is the feature directorial debut of David Soren who has previously worked on 'Shark Tale', 'Madagascar 2' and 'Shrek' in various departments and who also acted as a co-writer for the film alongside Darren Lemke ('Jack the Giant Slayer', 'Shrek Forever After') and Robert D. Siegel ('The Wrestler', 'Big Fan'). It's a delightful little tale due for release much later in the year on October 18th 2013.
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzman, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson

There must have been something in the air this year because we literally had too many celebrity weddings to choose from for this list (sorry Alec Baldwin, you can stop reading now, you got bumped), and it was a tough job whittling it down to 10. So, who DID make the grade in our run-down 2012’s best nuptials?
What was the highlight of actress Amber Tamblyn and actor David Cross’ wedding? Well, sadly, even Tamblyn’s stunning gown couldn’t upstage the antics of their unofficial photographer, Questlove. The happy snapper not only DJ’d at the wedding, but also decided to take a number of pics of the happy couple and stick them on his Instagram account. The Roots drummer revealed pretty much everything from the bride’s arrival, to the cutting of the cake, using the hashtag #weddinginthewoods. So, Amber and David – you just about made the grade, but you have your crazy DJ to thank for it.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have been officially married for over a month now, at which time it seems right for Lively to finally begin wearing her utterly incredible wedding ring (and about time too). She's managed to keep it well hidden or simply just not worn it while she's been out and about, but on the set of her hit show Gossip Girl, it seems the star is happy to flaunt her assets-and for once a comment like that about a woman is not meant to be crude.
Sporting a casual outfit of black denim, a Native-American style print jacket and black scarf, with a seemingly effortless and casual up-do of her blonde locks, Lively strolled casually and confidently on set, until she saw the cameras, at which point she tucked her hand away into her pocket, according to EntertainmentWise.
The rock is a 12 carat pink diamond that set Reynolds back an estimated $2m. Jeweller, Lorraine Schwartz worked with Reynolds who wanted to design the ring himself for her. A spokesperson for the jeweller said “'Ryan chose Lorraine Schwartz to help him find a flawless, light pink oval diamond. They worked together to design a custom setting in rose gold and pave diamonds with a nod to deco.”
Amber Tamblyn's dress was the real star of the show as the American actress and poet tied the knot with comedian and actor David Cross at a wonderful looking ceremony at the weekend. There was no press photography there, but who needs them when you've got DJ and music producer Questlove around to go snap-happy for you. The 41 year-old couldn't seem to help himself and on his Instagram, among other photos, there are a couple of glorious pictures of Tamblyn looking resplendent in a bright yellow, non-traditional dress.
In a classy looking location - pictures show Tamblyn stepping out of a boat with a lake and a lush-looking wood behind it - the couple were wedded with others in attendance including recently married Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively (also snapped by the ever reliable Questlove), whilst E! Online reports that Tamblyn's other 'Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants' co-stars America Ferrera and Alexis Bledel were also there, as was Amy Poehler, who recently split from her husband Will Arnett. American rock band Yo La Tengo provided the music.
Questlove really got pretty close up to the bride and groom, with one very intimate shot showing the moment when the pair of them cut the cake. With a man like him around, the paparazzi should be looking over their shoulders.
The Croods are a prehistoric family of six who have always lived by patriarch Grug's rule of never venturing out of the cave they call a home. While his wife Ugga, his mother-in-law Gran, his son Thunk and his baby Sandy all stand by his wishes, his eldest daughter Eep becomes restless as her curiosity for what the outside world might be like overwhelms her despite her father's brutal warnings. Giving in to temptation, Eep sneaks out to explore and, to her father's terror, almost gets crushed in an avalanche caused by an earthquake which destroys their home. No-one is hurt; on the contrary, a whole new land is discovered filled with vibrant vegetation and exotic creatures. Homeless and with no excuse to avoid investigating, the family set out on a journey into this new world, with Grug still feeling profoundly reluctant.
This animation adventure is a wonderful story of family, discovery and bravery directed and written by the geniuses of several lovable CGI movies, Kirk De Micco ('Space Chimps', 'Racing Stripes') and Chris Sanders ('Lilo & Stitch', 'How to Train Your Dragon'). Not only is it heart-warming to watch, but you'll also never go long without laughing whatever your age. It will hit UK cinemas from March 22nd 2013.
After a childhood wish brought his teddy bear to life, John (Wahlberg) has become inseparable with his buddy Ted (voiced by Macfarlane). But John's girlfriend Lori (Kunis) is starting to think that a 35-year-old man and his fluffy pal should stop living like stoner-slackers. Worried about the foul-mouthed, womanising Ted's influence, she encourages John to make his own way in life, so they can be a proper couple. But separating Ted and John is more difficult than it looks.

Matt (Reynolds) is a low-level operative watching over the CIA's Cape Town safe house. After months of sitting around waiting, he finally gets to host a notorious guest: most-wanted rogue agent Tobin (Washington). Then violent thugs assault the place and Matt takes Tobin on the run, calling his handler (Gleeson) in Langley to get help from senior agents (Farmiga and Shepard). But there's clearly a leak in the ranks, and Tobin is obviously carrying something both the good guys and bad guys want.

Matt Weston is a young CIA agent who, for the past year, has been bored by his inactive post in Cape Town. Matt is a "housekeeper" who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, a loyal company man who is waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. That opportunity seems to present itself when Matt's new 'guest' proves to be the most dangerous man he's ever met.

One night they wish they had each other's life and the next morning they wake up in each other's skin.

Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Wade Wilson in a Deadpool spin-off film to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it has been announced.
The wisecracking mercenary is one of the most popular characters in the X-Men comics and a potential Deadpool spin-off had been mooted when Reynolds was cast in the role.
And after Fox announced it was commencing pre-production on a sequel to box office smash X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it has also been revealed that a Deadpool film is now in active development.
Nicknamed the 'Merc with a Mouth', Deadpool was born Wade Wilson and like fellow mutant Wolverine, saw his future irrevocably changed by enrolling in the shady Weapon X military programme.
After submitting himself to Weapon X in a bid to cure his terminal cancer, Wilson emerges as Deadpool, a mentally unstable mercenary with similar healing powers to Wolverine.
According to MTV.com, the Deadpool film will be a "complete exploration of this unique character his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth".
Writers are currently being sought for the Deadpool film with Reynolds returning to a role he was seemingly destined to play after Deadpool was once described in the comics as a cross between a "Shar Pei and Ryan Reynolds".
X-Men Origins: Wolverine topped the UK box office on Tuesday, having earned over $85 million in its opening weekend in the US.

Now the studios have commissioned a straight-ahead remake.After all, why go to the bother of writing new stories, or for that matter,coming up with material for another sequel? This way no one needs to thinkof anything at all.
Written by Scott Kosar (the 2003 "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"remake), the new "Amityville Horror" begins in 1974 with a flashbackto the catalyst murders, steeped in darkness and lit by intermittent, flickeringflashes of lightning.
A year later, the Lutz family moves into the creepy housewith the big eye-like windows. George (RyanReynolds) is the second husband of Kathy (MelissaGeorge), who has three children from a previous marriage.

Have campus comedies really reached the point where fashionable, ante-upping gross-out gags are obligatory? I mean, do we really need a movie in which bulldog semen is served in pastries to unsuspecting frat jerks?
I ask only because "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" has such hilariously droll dialogue and such a witty, charismatic lead in Ryan Reynolds (of TV's "Two Guys and a Girl") that it's just bursting with untapped crafty comic energy that has been redirected toward the lowest of the lowbrow.
Reynolds emits an aura of smarmy charm in the title role of consummate collegiate slacker Van Wilder who, after seven years as Big Man On Campus and $40,000 in tuition, has been cut off by his fed-up father (played by Tim Matheson in one of the flick's many nods to "Animal House").
Continue reading: National Lampoon's Van Wilder Review
With its overblown script striving for maximum wackiness and cheap laughs, the espionage-and-matrimony comedy "The In-Laws" walks a thin line between funny and dumb in an inebriated stupor. Butt-crack gags and unlikely explosions are the order of the day. But a threesome of smarter-than-the-screenplay comedic performances keep the flick punchy enough to earn fairly steady smiles.
Albert Brooks stars as an anxiety-ridden podiatrist who considers a little foot fungus one of the most dangerous things in the world. Needless to say, he's in way over his head when, while trying to micro-manage his daughter's wedding plans, he stumbles onto a covert operation of international intrigue being led by the father of the groom (Michael Douglas), a loose-cannon undercover CIA agent.
Brooks provides a running narrative of amusing neuroses as he's knocked out and dragged along on a mission so he doesn't blow Douglas's cover as the screwy spook tries to prevent an effeminate French arms dealer (David Suchet) from selling a stolen nuclear stealth submarine. With masked insanity in his eyes and caffeine in his bloodstream, Douglas rides a comically uneven keel as the obnoxious daredevil spy of questionable sanity who does everything by the seat of his pants, including trying to negotiate with bad guys in a restaurant bathroom while having his first dinner with his future in-laws.

There is a key to good'n'stupid lowbrow comedy that few lowbrow moviemakers understand, and it is this: If you have a thin but serviceable premise upon which to build cheap, vulgar, tasteless, but side-splitting dumb gags, don't slap together some insipid story clogged with clichés to prop it up -- just run with what you've got.
Don't turn your movie into Adam Sandler or Rob Schneider fodder, full of insulting attempts to make audiences genuinely feel for your imbecile heroes and wishy-washy life lessons for your stock characters to learn in the last act. Don't be an "American Pie" and backpedal on your vulgarity at the last minute with a hypocritical-apology "happy" ending.
Instead, be proudly, shamelessly, flippantly stupid, like "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle," in which two recent-grad, odd-couple roommates don't discover anything about themselves, they never see any "bigger picture," and they don't grow up at all. They just get stoned out of their gourds on a Friday night, develop the munchies for those famous square hamburgers from the titular eastern-U.S. fast food joint, and spend the rest of the picture having preposterous misadventures while driving all over New Jersey hunting for the nearest franchise location.

A gratuitous wise-cracking sidekick and a tummy-baring, tight-top-wearing eye-candy vampire hunter have been added to the cast of the sequel "Blade: Trinity," but it's the gal (Jessica Biel) who gets most of the laughs, albeit unintentionally, with her lethargic, ludicrously inept kung-fu fighting.
Playing the hitherto unknown hottie daughter of Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) -- that crusty veteran of the underground vampire wars who is mentor to the titular half-vamp Wesley Snipes in all three "Blade" pictures -- Biel can't swing a convincing punch or kick to save her life.
But giving Biel a run for her money as the movie's most absurd character is ironic indie-flick darling Parker Posey, disastrously cast against type as the leader of yet another tiresome uber-Goth vampire faction that pouts around in skyscraper hideouts when they're not busy reviving their millennia-old master.
