EXHIBITION

Vogue 100: A Century of Style

The Beatles and Jude Law take centre stage at the National Portrait Gallery's new exhibition, Vogue 100: A Century of Style. The exhibition celebrates the remarkable range of photography that has featured in the British magazine since it was founded in 1916. The two photographs of Jude and The Beatles have never been displayed in public – until now. The portraits are displayed alongside the many faces that have shaped the cultural landscape of the twentieth century, from Princess Diana to Damien Hirst, and Claudia Schiffer to David Beckham. Another highlight of the exhibition is the entire set of prints from Corinne Day's controversial Kate Moss underwear shoot, taken in 1993 at the pinnacle of the 'grunge' trend.

FILM

Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds stars as Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative who is suffering from terminal cancer. When he's promised a new lease of life by scientist Ajax (played by Ed Skrein), Wade jumps at the chance but ends up disfigured and transformed when the experiment goes wrong. It does leave Wade with accelerated healing powers, so with the help of mutant allies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Wade, in his alter ego form Deadpool, uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
