Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.
"The Nice Guys" takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.
As Katniss takes on the role of the Mockingjay, her every public move is followed by a quartet of media-savvy rebels who produce “propos,” a mix of viral advertising, on-the-fly news clips and inspirational messages that are the only way for the rebels to communicate to the outside world.
Playing the sharp propos director Cressida is Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones. She was enthralled by Cressida’s journey in Mockingjay. “When Cressida first starts filming Katniss with the propos, she’s got quite a cynical idea of what she’s trying to create – she just wants to paste the symbol of the Mockingjay onto Katniss,” Dormer explains. “As she spends time with Katniss, and as the story develops, you see Cressida starting to really believe in Katniss as that galvanizing icon who can unite an oppressed people.”
She also loved bringing in a whole different side of media power from the sensationalized Games. “I think one really interesting thing about Mockingjay is that you see how battles can also be fought in the media. For Cressida and her crew, this is all about winning over hearts and minds,” explains Dormer.
