Sony may not be bringing anything big to this year’s Comic-Con, but they’ve made some huge announcements today. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was originally scheduled for a 2016 release, but Uncharted (the big screen adaptation of the popular PlayStation video game series) has now taken that movie’s June 10th release date.
However, we Will be revisiting the Spider-Man Cinematic Universe two years from now as Sinister Six is scheduled to open on November 11th, 2016. Written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), that movie focuses on a team of villains who team up to take down Peter Parker.
It’s not clear whether Spider-Man will appear in that movie or who will make up the team’s roster, but Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin will likely be there, with the likes of Doctor Octopus and Electro joining him.
The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has now been »

We’ve been hearing talk from the likes of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman suggesting that Sony may have jumped the gun when it came to announcing 2016 and 2018 release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4, and it seems that is indeed the case, with the studio announcing a reshuffle of its Spidey plans today.
Fans of Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler are going to have to wait until 2018 to see Spidey back on the big screen in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with the studio opting instead to move ahead with its supervillain ensemble The Sinister Six first, with the Drew Goddard-directed flick set to land on November 11th 2016. Meanwhile, video game adaptation Uncharted moves into The Amazing Spider-Man 3′s original date of June 10th, 2016.
Quite where this leaves The Amazing Spider-Man 4 is anyone’s guess. Garfield will be pushing 35 years of age by »

The great Spider-Man experiment continues! Sony isn't going to go down swinging in regards to the under-performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Nope, they're reloading and diversifying, re-writing their entire release schedule to spotlight The Sinister Six. Thank you for reading CinemaBlend, Sony. Your gift bag is in the mail. Via Deadline, Sony has announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has fled 2016, giving way to The Sinister Six, which will bow on November 11th, 2016. Following the villain team-up, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will debut in 2018 . no date is specified, though it will probably occupy the May 4th, 2018 slot reserved for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which will... vanish out of thin air, apparently. Clearly, Sony's original wishes for a Spider-Man movie every year will not come to fruition. What this means is that, with Sinister Six taking the place of a Spider-Man movie, it's likely going to Become a Spider-Man movie, with »
Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to May 4, 2018, a date previously slotted for The Amazing Spider-Man 4. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems likely Dane DeHaan »

Slow down, Spider-Man. Take a load off. You’ve been going nonstop since 2002.
After bringing home more than $700 million around the globe in his last superhero adventure, Andrew Garfield and the Amazing Spider-Man franchise aren’t being rushed back into the fray. A third film was originally slated for June 10, 2016, but Sony announced today that Spidey wouldn’t swing back our way—at least in his own film—until 2018.
The twist is that we still might get a taste of Spidey in two years, because Sinister Six is now officially on the calendar for Nov. 11, 2016. That franchise expansion, to be »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a younger A-lister, though one who’s been continually increasing her profile for a number of years now. It’s Emma Stone, one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. She’s basically been on a rocket to the top, with no signs of slowing down. Stone not only has the goods as an actress, she’s got the charisma and personality to match. That’s the kind of combination that allows a star to go far. She’s an A-lister through and through, but one still very much on the upswing of her career. She’s still got plenty more to do, including I suspect…win an Oscar. Stone is an actress who can shine in just about any role. She got her start with a clever supporting performance in Superbad, the type of performance she’d »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.
The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

Taken from an original story by Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead showrunner), it’s based around the original prologue to that book that was cut from publication in 1977. The story is told by the first owner, Bob T. Watson, who was a robber baron (businessmen who used exploitative practices to make money) in the early 20th century. The story goes that he climbed the Colorado Rockies and wanted to build the biggest, most impressive resort hotel in America.
Despite Romanek having mostly worked around impressive music videos, he’s also directed the brilliant creepy and uncomfortably realistic One Hour Photo starring Robin Williams in 2002, plus the deeply atmospheric Never Let Me Go (2010) that starred Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield. »

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were all loved up as they posed together at the New York premiere of 'Magic In The Moonlight'. Andrew looked smart in a grey suit and put a protective arm around his girlfriend, who was wearing a pretty floral dress. Emma said recently she believes her dead grandfather leaves her money. The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' actress began to notice that quarters would mysteriously appear wherever she went, and believes they are a gift from her late grandfather. Talking to David Letterman on the 'Late Show With David Letterman' Emma explained: "There's a long family history with quarters. My grandfather leaves quarters. It's just amazing. "It's him! It's absolutely him." Naturally confused, the veteran TV host needed to clarify her story. He said: "This is your late grandfather, and you find a quarter, 'Oh, I bet that's from granddad?'" The red haired beauty then joked: "Yes. »

The most honest conversations at a movie premiere often happen in the bathroom, which was the case for Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” At the after-party on the Upper East Side on Thursday night, two industry types started to gab at the urinals. The first man asked the second man what he thought. “It was, uh, interesting,” the second man said. The first man liked the music. The second man complimented the cinematography. Then both men started to pick apart the story about a 1920s magician (Colin Firth) who tries to expose a clairvoyant (Emma Stone) as a fraud. “It was slow,” the second man said.
There were other pacing problems at the premiere of the Sony Pictures Classics release. The movie started a half-hour late, and print journalists were crammed into the narrow lobby of the Paris Theatre. Before the talent arrived, Yahoo anchor Katie Couric, who isn’t in the film, »

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was a surprise success. After Tim Burton’s failed attempt to reignite audience interest in Planet Of The Apes we all wondered why Fox were bothering with another venture into the world. We were all foolish though as Rupert Wyatt managed to give the old story a modern and relevant twist, with Rise tackling controversial topics such as animal testing and cruelty.
At the heart of the film was a genetically-altered ape, Caesar, a super-intelligent being who grew-up with humans and believed himself to be human. The moment when he realises that he has been misled and discovers his actual place in society was gut-wrenchingly sad. So immersive is the character that it’s easy to forget that his on-screen visage is just computer-generated pixels. The real reason we love Caesar so much is because of the man responsible for capturing the performance: Andy Serkis. »

Set 10 years after its predecessor Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sees Andy Serkis reprise his role as Caesar, leader of a genetically evolved ape colony that is threatened by a band of human survivors. We’re not monkeying around when we say Serkis delivers one of the finest performances of the year, and when combined with Weta’s phenomenal CGI effects the result is something truly special.
Along with a handful of other journalists HeyUGuys were fortunate enough to sit down with the actor ahead of the film’s UK release, and an enjoyably chatty Serkis talked about how far performance capture has come in addition to developing Caesar’s voice and where the series might be headed in future instalments. It’s all been transcribed for your reading pleasure below.
What state was the storyline in when Rupert [Wyatt] was developing it, and what did Matt [Reeves] inherit?
