Spider-Man: Homecoming Weird Trailer Is Totally Bizarre

29 January 2017 1:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Sony Pictures finally unveiled the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, which was widely well-received by fans and critics alike. Sony hasn't confirmed when the second trailer will be unveiled, but today we have a 'Weird Trailer' for the film, which brings back the first two actors to play the web-slinger, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. While this trailer is essentially the same footage, there are a lot of bizarre items edited into this footage, including Minecraft characters, Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn, Batman, Kung Fu Panda and much more.

This weird trailer is just the latest in a series from YouTuber Aldo Jones, who debuted a weird trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy back in October. That trailer was given the "seal of approval" by director James Gunn, but as of now, it isn't clear if anyone involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming has seen and/or approved of this trailer. »

Judd Apatow says no plans for a Freaks and Geeks revival

22 January 2017 12:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of years, it seems that if a new TV show hasn’t been adapted from a movie, then there’s a strong likelihood that it’s actually a revival or a reboot of an old series (see The X-Files, 24, Full House, Prison Break, Gilmore Girls, Will & Grace, Twin Peaks et al).

Naturally, this has led to a lot of speculation as to which other shows could be set for a return to the air, but any Freaks and Geeks fans out there wondering if Judd Apatow and Paul Feig might be keen on dusting off the comedy-drama for a second season are probably going to be disappointed with Apatow’s response to that very question.

“I don’t want to do more Freaks and Geeks because we liked how it ended, so I feel it’s unwrapping something and seeing if you can not screw it »

Michael Keaton Pretended to Be Batman on Spider-Man: Homecoming Set

20 January 2017 1:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even before it was confirmed that Michael Keaton was playing the villainous Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans were excited that he had signed on, since it marked his long-awaited return to the superhero genre. Long before the term "cinematic universe" was even coined, Michael Keaton played Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton's 1989 classic Batman, which, along with its 1990s sequels, helped pave the way for the superhero genre to thrive on the big screen today. While there is still much that isn't known about Vulture in this movie, Tom Holland revealed in a new interview that Michael Keaton could not stop name-checking Batman on the set.

Earlier this week, Michael Keaton teased that his Vulture character is not your typical type of villain, while clarifying that he originally turned down the project because it didn't mesh well with his schedule. He added that they shifted the production schedule to accommodate him, »
