Andrew Garfield was unceremoniously dropped from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise when Sony scrapped plans for two more instalments and a Sinister Six spinoff that the British actor was also set to star in. Now, it’s up to In the Heart of the Sea star Tom Holland to carry the mantle and give fans the version of Spider-Man they’ve always wanted to see. Needless to say, the youngster is no doubt feeling the pressure, and had this to say recently about how it feels to be following in the footsteps of Garfield.
“I haven’t [met him], but I’m a huge fan of Andrew and he’s said some lovely things about me in the press the other day. He did such a good job as Peter Parker and it’s really difficult not to copy him because what he did was so perfect and obviously there are going to »

Last night Marvel almost made the internet explode when they dropped the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. One character who we know will be in the movie, but who didn.t show up in the first look (unless you believe some dubious rumors making the rounds), is Spider-Man. We.re looking forward to Wall Crawler.s first McU appearance for a number of reasons, but one is because he represents something different his fellow superheroes. Tom Holland, who plays the new Web Slinger, broke down one reason why he stands apart from his fellows: his secret identity. In the process of pumping up his upcoming whaling adventure, In the Heart of the Sea, in which he co-stars with the McU.s Thor, Chris Hemsworth, Holland spoke to Super Hero Hype. As you can imagine, the subject of Spidey comes up with great regularity, and he talked about how »
Last week we got seven clips from director Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea [watch them here], and now Warner Bros. has debuted a new featurette for the film entitled ‘The Myth of Moby Dick’. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, »

During an interview with Cinema Blend to promote his upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea, Chris Hemsworth spoke briefly about his next outing as the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, stating that he’d like to see an injection of Guardians of the Galaxy-esque humour into the threequel.
“I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians of the Galaxy. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know? I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, »

Forbes has published its list of 2015’s least profitable films. The rankings are based on global ticket sales for wide releases up to November against their estimated production costs (excluding marketing, which can run into tens of millions of dollars for blockbusters).
Using those figures, Rock the Kasbah receives the unwelcome honour of offering the lowest returns. The ensemble cast of Bill Murray, Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel failed to entice audiences, who were either put off by the premise or the scathing reviews. Despite the relatively cheap price tag of $15 million, Rock the Kasbah had only made $2.9 million till November 18th.

iGN recently interviewed actor Tom Holland at a press event for his latest film “In the Heart of the Sea”, directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth (“Rush”), Cillian Murphy (“Inception”), Ben Whishaw (“Spectre”), Brendan Gleeson (“Braveheart”), and Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”). Holland has been cast as the new Spider-Man who will make his first live-action appearance in next year’s Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War”; Holland is also set to star in a solo “Spider-Man” film directed by Jon Watts (“Cop Car”).
When asked about his take on the character, Holland said:
“It's very daunting, because obviously the first two guys were so great and they did such fantastic performances, so I've got quite a lot to follow. I think I'll have the help from the rest of the Marvel Universe and what's quite exciting is when you read these comics that he's in, he »

If you aren't a fan of the humor Marvel tends to insert into their comic book movies, then you'll hate what Chris Hemsworth shared on how he feels about the upcoming threequel, "Thor: Ragnarok." The actor was recently interviewed and felt it wise to share just what type of atmosphere the movie should have, and settled by saying it should have humor like that of the 2014 blockbuster "Guardians of The Galaxy."
"I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?"
Of course I doubt this is what many fans would hope or want, with some even saying there was to much humor in the second installment into the Thor series, but »

One of the biggest differences between Marvel and DC's approach to television has been that of how the properties are linked. Marvel has opted to include all its film and TV properties as part of the same cinematic universe, whereas DC is not only keeping its film and TV worlds separate but allowing the TV properties to go off into either their individual or combined universes.
The biggest difference is this allows multiple versions of the same DC character to appear at any one time - from both Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller playing the small and big screen versions of The Flash respectively, to a show like "Gotham" having essentially free reign to develop whatever villains they want. If Marvel's "Daredevil" wants to use Thor, they'll need Chris Hemsworth to cameo in the role.

Chris Hemsworth has been making the publicity rounds in advance of his latest movie, In the Heart of the Sea. The movie is based on a true story about a ship's crew who were stalked by a giant sperm whale in 1820, a tale that inspired Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick. Writer Nathaniel Philbrick related the riveting story in his book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whalehip Essex, first published in 2000. The crew lost their ship in the Pacific Ocean, and then set off in whaleboats for South America, more than 1,000 miles away. They suffered from dehydration and starvation, leading to desperate measures as they were at sea for some 90 days. In order to lend authenticity to their roles, the actors -- including Cillian Joy, Tom Holland, and Benjamin Walker...

Spanish film composer Roque Baños, best known for "The Machinist" (2004) and "Sexy Beast" (2000), has teamed with Ron Howard for the director's upcoming historical adventure, "In the Heart of the Sea." The film tells the true-life story of the Essex, whose crew was stranded at sea for more than 90 days in 1820 after being rammed by a Moby Dick-like whale. Adapted by Charles Leavitt ("Blood Diamond") from Nathaniel Philbrick's nonfiction National Book Award winner, "In the Heart of Sea" stars Chris Hemsworth as first mate Owen Chase, attempting to lead the men in the harrowing aftermath of the shipwreck. Baños co-conducted each of the rehearsal sessions for what may be his biggest artistic undertaking to date — combining unique sounds and textures tailored specifically to Howard's vision. Over the course of his career, Baños has scored over fifty films and television series, winning »

When Chris Hemsworth joined Instagram a month ago, one of the first things he share was his workout routine. Keeping up that Thor physique isn’t easy. Perhaps he even normally adheres to the Gaston regimen…“Every morning I eat five dozen eggs, so I’m roughly the size of a barge.” Hemsworth’s roles normally require him to be in top, muscled form. But not “In the Heart of the Sea.” Breaking #Tbt protocol to post this photo on a Monday, Hemsworth showcased what he went through for the part back in 2013. Just tried a new diet/training program called "Lost At Sea". Wouldn't recommend it.. #IntheHeartoftheSea A photo posted by Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) on Nov 22, 2015 at 1:56pm Pst During production of “In the Heart of the Sea,” Hemsworth went on Jimmy Kimmel to promote “Thor: The Dark World” and talked about his intense diet.

Casting an actor for a role as iconic as a long running superhero comes down to two things: the actual ability to play the role, and having the right people in your corner. In the case of Tom Holland.s casting as Spider-Man, he.s got both factors locked down, as his gymnastics and acting prowess won over none other than Chris Hemsworth during their tenure on Ron Howard.s In The Heart Of The Sea. While speaking with Hemsworth, best known as the lead of the Thor franchise, I was curious as to what might have convinced him that Holland was the right guy for the job. Seeing as his Owen Chase spends a lot of time interacting and sharing the screen with Holland.s Thomas Nickerson, there had to have been some moment that the two shared that helped convince the Marvel Cinematic Universe veteran that this young »
While out promoting In The Heart of the Sea, McU star Chris Hemsworth briefly discussed what he wants to see in the third, solo Thor film; Thor: Ragnarok. In a film that's confirmed to see the mighty son of Odin team up with Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, Hemsworth is actually hoping for a bit more humor this time around. "I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?" At this early stage, it's unclear whether Hemsworth will actually get his wish granted or if Kevin Feige and the Marvel brain-trust actually need Thor: Ragnarok to head in a different direction as the McU gears up for Avengers: Infinity War. »

Chris Hemsworth replaced his brother Liam as Thor. The 32-year-old actor has revealed he wasn't initially picked to play the hammer-wielding God in the blockbuster after failing to make the final cut alongside his younger sibling. Speaking to Vanity Fair magazine, he said: ''I had an audition with Ken [Branagh, for 'Thor'] that didn't go very well. I remember walking out thinking, 'Oh well, there goes that opportunity.' Then one day Joss and Drew were reading the trades, and on the front was the final four for 'Thor.' ''And they pointed to Liam and said, 'Hey, is that your brother?' »
Over the past year Chris Hemsworth has been at odds to prove that he.s more than just a Nordic God who is BFFs with a hammer or an axe. But he.s obviously not been busy enough, because the Australian actor is in talks to play Allan Quatermain - which Sony hopes will lead to a new, viable franchise for all involved. Even though there have been several movies that have featured Allan Quatermain as the main character, the most recent one was The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen - a film that was so disastrous it forced Sean Connery to retire after playing the famous explorer. Tracking Board.s sources also allege that the studio is now looking to package the project with a big-name actor, who they then believe will help to propel the film into the franchise. This is where Chris Hemsworth's classically rugged looks come »
