Deadpool Teaser, Revisiting David Bowie’s Underappreciated Roles & More

Here's what we're reading on Tuesday, January 12, 2016:

The world continues to mourn the passing of David Bowie. We suggest listening to his last album, "Blackstar," all the way through. It's devastating. Here's Variety's Steven Gaydos deconstructing Bowie's filmography. One of those films is Labyrinth, a collaboration between three singular talents; The Muppets creator Jim Henson, George Lucas, and Bowie.

Speaking of Bowie's filmography, go back and watch The Prestige for his understated, brilliant take on legendary inventor Nikola Tesla, urges IndieWire's Scott Beggs. 

The Hollywood Reporter decodes six inside jokes from the Golden Globes for you, in case you were confused about what being a "Tom Hardy type of actor" actually meant. 

Deadline reports that Jamie Foxx is set to star as a battle-tested Little John in Otto Bathurst's Robin Hood: Origins. 

It's Deadpool's version of Canadian rules football, and wouldn't you know, it's over the top!

We began with Bowie, and we'll end with Bowie. Here are two major directors talking about the icon's influence on them with Vulture; Cameron Crowe, who interviewed him in the 1970s and said, "Bowie was the most generous and entertaining interview subject I’d ever met," and Carol director Todd Haynes, whose beautiful sentiments speak for many. "For so many in my generation, Bowie redefined what was possible as a popular artist, making gorgeously accessible the radical and the visionary. Our lives and our world will never be the same."
