Greetings from Philly. Been a fan since the now infamous Man of Steel videos. Love you guys. My question is about Deadpool‘s heavy film marketing. I can’t remember the last time a studio & actor backed a movie so hard. Even down to dressing up as the character on Halloween. All the promotion for it has been perfect in my opinion, but do you think they are over saturating the general public?

Hey, Collider Crew. I have a question about Curtis Hanson. Coming out of the 90’s and early 00’s he was one of the strongest directors we had around (L.A. Confidential and Wonder Boys are both excellent movies and 8 Mile was very good too) yet he disappear for a big while and resurface a year ago in a HBO movie (I was surprised to see his name in Too Big To Fail). What happened to him? Can some CMU rescue him?

Hi Collider peeps! Love you all. So I often hear you guys talk about actors going into directing. Which is great! But do you know of many cases where a director has successfully gone into acting? Thanks and stay beautiful!
