Last week, we reported that the Target exclusive Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 includes confirmation from director Marc Webb that the end credits stinger includes The Sinister Six villains Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio, although the filmmaker later admitted that he isn't even sure if they will appear in the spin-off. However, given Sony's recent announcement that The Sinister Six will hit theaters in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been moved to 2018, some believe that these special features are already outdated.
Among the details Marc Webb revealed in last week's video include a deleted scene where The Gentleman a.k.a. Gustav Fiers (Michael Massee) approaches the cryogenically frozen head of Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), which paves the way for the OsCorp founder to return for "the next movie," which we believe he meant The Amazing Spider-Man 3. We now know that "the next movie" will be The Sinister Six, »
Exclusive: In a bid to drive acquisitions, Toronto top brass are understood to be collaborating with select sales agents to allow festival staff and volunteers to attend four early-stage private buyers screenings.
Screendaily has learned the move is being orchestrated to replicate the buoyant atmosphere of public screenings in an effort to stir up sales.
The timing of the move is dictated by a growing recognition that most decision-makers at distribution companies will have left town by the time these films officially premiere in the second week, despite Toronto’s efforts to spread its riches across the duration of the festival.
That strategy was informed in part by the festival’s new and well documented policy of holding back until the second week premieres of anticipated films that will receive their actual world premiere in Telluride.

During the end credits for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans could use the Shazam app, which revealed a series of images teasing the villainous lineup for the upcoming Sinister Six movie. The images are believed to represent Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. We also showed you a TV spot for the Target-exclusive Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which includes a bonus disc that teases The Sinister Six. A video from that bonus disc has hit the web, where Marc Webb confirms Kraven and Mysterio are a part of The Sinister Six line-up.
Take a look at this video from YouTube user Amazing Spider Man, then read on for more details.
When the images were first revealed, some thought that the mask actually belonged to Chameleon, but that was debunked shortly thereafter. However, we reported in April, soon after the images debuted, that »

If you watch the trailer for The Theory Of Everything and feel nothing, watch it again you crazy heartless mad person.
To add to the slow-paced marketing for this title, which is the right way to do it, we’ve got a new poster that flips proceedings on their side and reflects the changes in circumstances to come. The Stephen Hawking biopic is directed by Man On Wire’s James Marsh and based on the memoir by Jane Hawking ‘Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen‘.
Starring Eddie Redmayne as the young astrophysicist and genius, it follows his love for Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones) at Cambridge and charters their beginnings, alongside the huge, earth-shattering diagnosis of motor neuron disease at 21 years-old. This extraordinary story looks like one set to pluck at the heartstrings but also feel so very real. I can’t wait for it, check out the poster below: »

I find myself wondering about James Marsh's "The Theory of Everything." I'm excited for the film on one hand, as a handling of the life of Stephen Hawking is long past due (and James Marsh is an interesting choice to bring it forth). But the geek in me wants the focus (no pun intended) on his contributions to physics and cosmology. The marketing from Focus Features, however, is making it very clear that this is a love story first and foremost. The trailer set that construct up a few weeks ago and today it's made all the more obvious as Hawking's theorems and whatnot literally play in the background of a romantic encounter with his wife Jane on the film's official poster. Granted, the film is based on Jane Hawking's book, so a story from her perspective obviously makes sense. And again, if Focus gets a good »

Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, »

Sony clearly has big plans for its Spider-Man franchise, but how will it pan out? Seb looks at what we know, what might happen, and more...
Now that the dust has begun to settle on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it’s about time to look forwards once more to what Sony’s Spider-franchise might have in store for us. With ambition far beyond simply producing solo Spider-Man films one after the other, the studio is apparently determined to build an entire franchise out of one set of character rights – it’s a bold stance, but one that will clearly require some creative lateral thinking when it comes to who they manage to make a hero out of.
Let’s take a look, then, at what we know about the future Spidey tie-ins, and for good measure what we can speculate about endlessly...
What’s definitely happening

Al Pacino (Heat) will be starting off the 2014 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival at Charity Gala on September 3rd with an intimate on-stage conversation; however, the Oscar-winner will not be alone as other celebrities will be descending upon the city. A much loved comedian will be honoured two days later as Bill Murray Day will see the screenings of Ghostbusters (1984), Stripes (1981) and Groundhog Day (1993) plus the World Premiere of his latest cinematic performance in St. Vincent Theodore Melfi where he portrays a boozing and gambling curmudgeon who establishes an unusual friendship with a newly transplanted 12 year old boy in Brooklyn.
Outside of Pacino and Murray, the festivities will include in-depth conversations with filmmakers David Thorpe, Julie Taymor, Antoine Fuqua and Jon Stewart; actors Robert Duvall, Denzel Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Richard Gere and Juliette Binoche; and journalists Maziar Bahari and Dan Savage. “The Mavericks programme offers Festivalgoers an exclusive »

If you’re going to have someone on your side to protect you from bad guys and guide you through life’s trials and tribulations, there is probably nobody better than Sigourney Weaver to get the job done. But although she’s one of the most badass action stars in film history, she’s leaving the niceties to Liam Neeson this time around. Weaver has signed on to the cast of the children’s fantasy flick A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the brilliant 2011 novel from Patrick Ness that will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) and feature Neeson as the title creature. The actress is taking on something a little more frosty in the film, playing grandmother to 13-year-old protagonist Conor, whose life is especially complicated with a double whammy of brutal bullying from classmates at school and his mother’s (Felicity Jones) prognosis of terminal cancer.

Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

The film is being directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible), and the story follows "a young boy who attempts to deal with bullying at the hands of his classmates, and his mother's terminal illness, by escaping into a fantastical world through the guidance of a tree monster."
Weaver will play the boy’s grandmother, Jones is playing the boys mother, and Neeson is playing the monster. I really like the concept of the story, and the cast they've brought together to bring it to life so far is fantastic. The movie is set to be released in October 2016.

Per Variety, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Fantastic Four star Toby Kebbell is in negotiations to join Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver, and Liam Neeson in the film, a feature adaptation of Patrick Ness’ award-winning children's fantasy novel.
Look for it in Us theatres via River Road Entertainment, Participant Media, Lionsgate International, and Focus Features on October 14, 2016. It will be distributed by Universal Pictures International for its theatrical and home entertainment release in Spain and Lionsgate International throughout the rest of the world.

Toby Kebbell is quite in-demand as of late. With a major role in Dawn of The Planet of The Apes, and his work as "Dr. Doom" in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, he's well on his way to becoming a household name. The Hollywood Reporter is now sharing news that the actor is in talks to join A Monster Calls.
The film, which all ready includes the talents of Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones, and Sigourney Weaver, is a dark fantastical tale. It centers on a young boy, coping with bullying and a father that's never there, who escapes into a fantastical world at night with the help of a monstrous, talking tree outside of his window (voiced by Neeson).
Kebbell would be playing the boy's father.

Earlier this year, Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones joined the cast of A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the children's fantasy novel by Patrick Ness from director Juan Antonio Bayona. Now THR pegs two more cast members with Sigourney Weaver and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Toby Kebbell joining the story about a young boy dealing with his mother's debilitating illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales. Neeson is playing the titular monsters who befriends the boy and tells him stories, but the two new cast members will be playing human characters. Weaver will be playing the young boy's no-nonsense grandmother while Kebbell will play his father, who has a history of not being there for the boy. And now we know that Jones will be playing the boy's mother. This sounds like a great fantasy with a strong emotional core, »

You may not know Toby Kebbell, but the actor’s star has been rising steadily over the past ten years. This past summer, he took on the mo-cap role of antagonist Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – but prior to that, the British thesp had earned raves for his parts in Dead Man’s Shoes, Control and RocknRolla. And rest assured, if you currently can’t picture his face, just wait. He’ll play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s anticipated Fantastic Four reboot, and now we’ve learned that Kebbell is also climbing on board the dark fantasy A Monster Calls.
Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) is directing the adaptation of Patrick Ness’ award-winning children’s book, which was in turn based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. Bayona, whose past credits also include bone-chilling ghost story The Orphanage, has been putting together »
