‘Once Upon a Deadpool’ trailer has a charity tie-in: Watch

What’s better than a Deadpool sequel? Two sequels, with different ratings, out in the same year! Once Upon A Deadpool will revisit Deadpool 2 “filtered through the prism of childlike innocence” – a.k.a. edited to fit a PG-13 rating.

Once Upon A Deadpool frames the previously explicit movie as a bedtime story Deadpool reads to Fred Savage – you know, like The Princess Bride. However, as Savage is quick to note, he’s an adult man now, and the gimmick doesn’t have the same heartwarming, family-friendly feeling (Deadpool has him tied up).

$1 from every Once Upon A Deadpool ticket goes to Fuck Cancer – or rather, Fudge Cancer, per a press release.

“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”

Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters for a limited engagement starting Dec. 12.

Mark Zuckerberg believes Facebook is at ‘war,’ says report

Mark Zuckerberg is feeling the heat.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Facebook’s founder and CEO believes his company is currently at “war.” The comment came from Mark Zuckerberg this past June in a meeting with a few dozen of Facebook’s top executives amid the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

In this same June meeting, Zuckerberg told executives that he was going to be taking a more active role in Facebook’s day-to-day operations. With the social media platform fighting on multiple fronts — between Congress, the press, and even his own executives — Zuckerberg clearly felt he needed to take a more active role.

Zuckerberg’s key issue with his company was the speed at which it was dealing with the major conflicts afflicting it. According to the report, the Facebook founder was pushing for senior executives to “make progress faster” and was frustrated with how the company was handling its crises.

Some of Facebook’s top executives were so rattled by Zuckerberg’s response to the issues facing the company that they feared for their jobs. According to the report, even Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg worried about her job security after much of the blame for the Cambridge Analytica fallout on her and her team.

The report claims Zuckerberg’s new, more hands-on role has led to conflicts with the heads of Facebook’s other units. The report alleges that this played a part in the recent departures of Instagram’s and WhatsApp’s founders.

The June meeting came in the midst of public outcry against Facebook over fake news, Russian influence, and leaks involving users’ private data. 

This past week, the New York Times released a bombshell report detailing how Facebook mishandled those issues, as well as its attempts to get ahead of critics. In the wake of that report, Zuckerberg allegedly blasted the media coverage as “bullshit” at a company Q&A on Friday.

A YouTuber’s cat managed to survive the California wildfires

YouTuber Hamish Patterson revealed in a heart wrenching new video on Sunday that his cat, Mike the mini puma, managed to survive the deadly California wildfire that ravaged Malibu.

In the video, Patterson shows his home completely destroyed by the wildfires, mourning the devastation.

“We found the cat,” said Patterson tearfully as he holds onto Mike in the video. “My kitty made it.”

Patterson goes on to say that he doesn’t know how Mike survived the fires, and that he’s amazed by the fact that he survived for nine days alone, with just a bit of food left out by friends and neighbors.

Despite the loss of their home, the entire Patterson clan is doing well — and they’re doing even better now that Mike has returned.

There’s a new version of Monopoly for Game of Thrones fans and this time it plays music.

The second edition of Monopoly: Game of Thrones is coming in January 2019 to make Game of Thrones fans angrier at each other than the television show ever could. Along with some aesthetic upgrades, the new edition of Monopoly: Game of Thrones includes an Iron Throne card holder that plays the Game of Thrones theme song while you play.

With Monopoly: Game of Thrones, players get to control their preferred houses and buy up land all around Westeros and Essos to screw over their opponents and eventually dominate the world through the power of unmitigated capitalism.

Do you really want Hardhome, though?

To add to the Game of Thrones flair, the normal paper Monopoly currency has been replaced with silver stags and gold dragons (the coins used in Game of Thrones).

Interestingly, due to the nature of the HBO series, this version of Monopoly is intended to be played by people aged 18 and older. It is also the first-ever Monopoly game to have music incorporated into the experience.

Monopoly: Game of Thrones is available to pre-order online at a handful of major retailers for $29.99.
