‘Spider-Man’ Radical Redesigns: How Sam Raimi, Marc Webb and Jon Watts Updated Spidey and His Villains for Each Reboot
From the sensitive Tobey Maguire to the nerdy Andrew Garfield to the clumsy Tom Holland, Peter Parker/Spider-Man has evolved into the ultimate teenage, superhero misfit. And, as Sony’s top franchise, the web-slinger has experienced different rites of passage under the direction of Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Spider-Man 3”), Marc Webb (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), and Jon Watts (“Spider-Man Homecoming”).

But until Sony made a deal in 2015 to share the Spider-Man movie rights with Disney and Marvel Studios, the Marvel Comics superhero remained separate from the McU. That changed with the decidedly younger Holland making a guest appearance as Parker/Spidey in “Captain America: Civil War” (2016). Following his first solo stint in “Homecoming” (July 7th), Holland will appear in “Avengers: Infinity War” (May 4, 2018), followed by the sequel, “Homecoming 2” (2019).

Jumanji 2 Teaser Arrives, Full Trailer Is Coming This Thursday
Sony Pictures has unveiled a brief trailer preview for the highly-anticipated Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, to get fans ready for the first full trailer that will arrive on Thursday, June 29. Unfortunately, this trailer preview doesn't feature any footage at all, just a glimpse at the movie's official logo along with the tagline, "The Game That Plays You." This trailer preview comes almost exactly two months after the first Jumanji footage was shown to exhibitors at CinemaCon, which revealed that this movie will put a whole new twist on the original book by Chris Van Allsburg, and the movie it was based on.

In a brand new Jumanji adventure, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji's world, pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they'll play as characters from the game: meek Spencer becomes a brave

Why Quentin Tarantino Producer Richard Gladstein Ditched Indie Film to Run the AFI Conservatory

The American Film Institute Conservatory has a new dean in producer Richard Gladstein, and he shamelessly chased down the job.

Gladstein — president of Film Colony, producer of Best Picture Oscar nominees “Finding Neverland” and “The Cider House Rules,” as well as a bevy of Quentin Tarantino movies — comes to a Los Feliz hillside campus that is still bruised after two fractious years under the last dean, Jan Schuette, who last November agreed to step down at the end of June.

No one is more surprised than Gladstein at how much he wanted the gig. He put in a long stint with Harvey Weinstein at Miramax Films, where he started as head of production in 1993. “Oddly it was the same day that Disney bought the company,” he said. “So my first-day press conference with Jeffrey Katzenberg was my initiation. The AFI feels akin to that. The place is bursting with creativity,

‘Snowden’ Review

Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Nicholas Cage, Rhys Ifans, Tom Wilkinson, Joely Richardson | Written by Oliver Stone, Kieran Fitzgerald | Directed by Oliver Stone

It seems the perfect time to be releasing Snowden on DVD and Blu-ray, we are constantly hearing about how hacking has influenced events in America. With Oliver Stone directing, it seems he is a good choice because of his Anarchic choice of films he directs, but has he delivered a movie fitting of such a massive historical event?

When Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) decides to go down the Nsa/CIA route of fighting to protect his country he proves to be very adept at creating systems to spy on individuals of interest. When he learns of the true scale of surveillance though, he finds himself turning whistle-blower to wake people up to how governments are attacking people’s privacy.

Snowden movie review: the system’s self-correction

MaryAnn’s quick take… A gripping précis of what Edward Snowden learned at the CIA and Nsa, why he went public, and why it matters. Entertaining yet also deeply unsettling. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of Oliver Stone, and of Edward Snowden; love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Snowden opens in June 2013, as journalists Laura Poitras (Melissa Leo: London Has Fallen, The Big Short) and Glenn Greenwald (Zachary Quinto: Star Trek Beyond, Hitman: Agent 47) first meet and interview, over several days, Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt: The Night Before, The Walk), in a hotel in Hong Kong. My first thought upon my second viewing this weekend of Oliver Stone’s (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, W.) gripping docudrama about these shocking real-life events is

Snowden, 2016.

Directed by Oliver Stone.

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Rhys Ifans, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Olyphant, Joely Richardson, Ben Schnetzer, Scott Eastwood, and Nicolas Cage.

Synopsis:

The Story of Edward Snowden, whistle-blower of the Nsa’s illegal surveillance techniques. The film follows his life and the impact of his actions as he releases thousands of classified documents to the public.

The Us government could be watching you right now. After the explosive revelations regarding the reach of the surveillance state, we all looked at that ominous pinhole webcam nestled atop our screens with a lot more suspicion. It’s a concern that is as relevant today as it ever was, the news still reporting on supposed wiretapping and hacking. Oliver Stone’s latest film Snowden manages to give an accessible account of mass surveillance and the moral questions behind it, whilst focusing on the personal story
