    Po: β€œThe Furious Five! You're so much bigger than your action figures! Except you, Mantis. You're about the same.”

    To get the ambiance of the movie, production designer Raymond Zibach and art director Heng Tang spent several years researching Chinese art and Kung Fu movies. This effort, combined with the rest of the crew's extensive research and knowledge of Chinese culture, impressed the Chinese so much that there were meetings by official government cultural bodies to discuss why their own…

    Jamis: β€œThe mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience. A process that cannot be understood by stopping it. We must move with the flow of the process. We must join it. We must flow with it.”

    Deadpool: β€œFrom the studio that inexplicably sewed his fucking mouth shut the first time comes five-time Academy Award viewer, Ryan Reynolds, in an eHarmony date with destiny. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you... me! Deadpool.”

    Ryan Reynolds said that Deadpool will be the last comic book character he will ever portray. He previously played the crappy Wade Wilson from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern, and Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity. This was such a breath of fresh air in the…

    Ernest Burkhart: "Can you find the wolves in this picture?"

    Robert De Niro first mentioned Martin Scorsese to Leonardo DiCaprio after working with him on This Boy's Life and being impressed by his talent. Scorsese took it seriously because De Niro rarely recommended other actors. Scorsese remembered this years later when casting Gangs of New York, which began his long collaboration with DiCaprio. This is the 7th collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio and the 11th between Scorsese and De Niro.…

    Alphie: "My name is not Bot. My name is Alphie. Remember?"

    The is Hans Zimmer's first collaboration with Gareth Edwards. It's his second of three collaborations with cinematographer Greig Fraser and editor Joe Walker, following Dune, with Dune: Part Two coming next year. I had a lot of fun with this and it was super cool being able to see it early in IMAX. I'm a big sci-fi fan, so this was right up…
