Man sent to jail for uploading and sharing Deadpool movie on Facebook

Being the world’s biggest social network, it’s a place where things often go viral. The same happened with 21-year-old pirate Trevon Maurice Franklin.

Franklin uploaded the movie just a week after Deadpool hit the theaters last year. His pirated copy of the movie was seen by about five million viewers. After his arrest for infringing copyright, the FBI is carrying out the investigation.

Deadpool screenplay up for Writers Guild award

The X-Men spin-off, starring Ryan Reynolds, is one of five films up for the guild's adapted screenplay prize.

Oscar-tipped titles La La Land and Moonlight are among those in contention for its original screenplay award.

Last year both Spotlight and The Big Short went on to win screenplay Oscars after being recognised by the WGA.

Deadpool's competition includes Denzel Washington's film version of August Wilson's stage play Fences.
