While the Sony hack appears to be over for the time being, more information is still coming forward that was leaked from various emails and documents from deep within the studio. By this point, everyone knows that Marvel was working hard to make a deal with Sony to bring Spider-Man into Captain America: Civil War. That deal never happened, but more details on exactly what was to take place have emerged, and they shed some light on the proposed The Amazing Spider-Man reboot that would have seen Marvel and Sony working close together. It is believed that Sony is still ready to reboot the franchise without Andrew Garfield in the lead.
Some of this new information both confirms and contradicts what we've heard in the recent past. It is speculated by Cbm that some of the past information was made up by foreign bloggers looking to cash in on the »

Such a handsome Holmes…
“Say Hello To My Little Friend.” That’s a clue for who Marvel have contacted to add to their ever-expanding roster – find out who in this week’s Movie Newsgasm.
Speaking of Marvel (which we do a lot of at the moment), they’ve only gone and cast Benedict Cumberbatch (The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, The Imitation Game) as Doctor Strange. “Doctor Who?” you ask. That’s an entirely different show.
And finally, we’re chatting the movie version of Wikileaks – the hacking of Sony Pictures’ internal emails. Presumably by the Kingpin or some other mistreated fomer-Marvel property. Find out a few more of their bonkers ideas (Aunt May solo movie, anyone?) right here.

During an interview with James Horner Film Music (via Cbr), composer James Horner has revealed why he opted against returning to score this year’s superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, stating that the movie “ended up being so terrible” that he simply didn’t want to do it.
“[Director Marc Webb] was very inexperienced and he and I had a very good relationship and the producers had their own opinion. And they didn’t want his input. And then Sony had their own, they just wanted action. To me, the whole thing about doing the first movie was I liked the director and there was a chance to write something for the two lead characters and then she dies in the next movie. But the next movie ended up being so terrible, I didn’t want to do it. It was just dreadful.”

The restructuring fills the void left at Fox TV Studios in August when Fox TV Studios prexy David Madden was tapped to oversee programming for Fox Broadcasting Co. Salke has headed the Fox 21 banner since 2010 and has steered its growth with such notable series as “Homeland” and “Sons of Anarchy.”
Salke was seen as a front-runner for the job at Fox TV Studios, and it’s a logical step to combine it with Fox 21. Both units are focused on producing for cable and digital outlets. Fox 21 was created as the lower-cost production arm of 20th Century Fox TV in the era when Fox Television Studios was a separate entity that did not report into then-20th TV toppers Walden and Newman. »

In between Mystery Science Theater 3000 and South Park, Comedy Central's biggest breakout was a cheaply made animated show called Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. Co-created by comedian Jonathan Katz and animator/producer Tom Snyder, it starred Katz as the titular shrink and his relationships with his receptionist (Laura Silverman) and his son (H. Jon Benjamin, now of Archer and Bob's Burgers fame). The show was fleshed out by comedians like Ray Romano, Dom Irrera, Dave Attell, Louis C.K., Denis Leary, Jon Stewart, and Janeane Garofalo. The show last aired in 2002, but a few years back, Katz dusted off his »

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

During the Q&A at the Broad City panel at New York Comic Con Friday night, one fan asked the creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer who would be on their personal "gross fuck lists." She was referring, of course, to the final scene of last season's finale, when Abbi and Ilana compare notes on who would be on their lists (Oj Simpson for Abbi, David Blaine and the old dancing Six Flags dancing guy for Ilana). So what about their real-life gross fuck lists? Turns out they were just talking about it the other day!Ilana: You just came up with a really good one the other day. Abbi: Oh yeah, but I feel bad...I feel bad saying that about anyone. So yeah I said...Denis Leary. He's kind of hot, but in a villainy way. Ilana: Same thing as Willem Dafoe. I think I'd have sex with him. »

Draft Day, 2014.
Directed by Ivan Reitman.
The first day of the NFL draft proves dramatic for the general manager of a team in need of a turnaround.
There are a lot of things Draft Day gets right. It’s a ‘sports movie’ that can be enjoyed by hard core football fans or people who couldn’t tell you the difference between a touchdown or a field goal. Rather than focusing on an actual football game Draft Day uses the intense and time restrictive pressure of the first day of the NFL draft to wrap its story around. Any sports fan who has watched the NFL draft on TV (a painfully slow and boring process) will be delighted to see the action packed craziness that takes place behind the scenes with players, teams, and owners scrambling to make »

While lacking the dramatic clout of the similarly-themed Moneyball, Draft Day nonetheless provides an easy viewing experience thanks to director Ivan Reitman's breezy pacing and star Kevin Costner's enduring appeal as a leading man.
Costner plays NFL manager Sonny Weaver, tasked with rebuilding his Cleveland Browns team on the all important draft day - a time when rival teams barter and jostle to secure the best new recruits. The coverage dominates the media and the stakes are high for all those involved, but why on earth should we give a hoot?
Draft Day does a good job at communicating the premise to those not familiar with American football and the frenzied dealings behind the scenes, culminating in a tense (if by-numbers) finale of one-upmanship. Although »
In order for humans to team up with zombies and vampires, you know the circumstances must be dire. In Sony’s upcoming horror comedy, Kitchen Sink, an alien invasion forces the living to team up with fanged fiends and the shambling dead in order to save their town, though viewers will have to wait longer to see this unlikely bond, as Sony has delayed the release of Kitchen Sink by nearly eight months.
Exhibitor Relations reports that Sony has moved the release of Kitchen Sink from its January 9th, 2015 slot to September 4th. The monster mash-up movie has been described as having a vibe akin to The Breakfast Club, but we’ll have to wait for a trailer and more synopsis details to see what ghoulish goods could be in store. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.

Each episode of the comedy offers a fictionalized look at Marc’s life, chronicling the man’s misguided attempts to grow.
“Usually Marc has a hard time maintaining long-term relationships, but luckily not with us,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “He’s committed to bringing his wry humor and refreshing perspective back to IFC for a third season.”
“I am very proud of both seasons of the show and thrilled we’re doing another one,” said Maron. “Through all the episodes I can see the growth and evolution of the character, writing and comedy. I’m excited about getting back into the process. The character of Maron needs some work on and off screen and fortunately that’s what drives the show. »
