"I'm offering you Manhattan champ, don't play hard to get." Screen Media has debuted an official trailer for Ten Thousand Saints, from writers/directors Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini (of American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries, Girl Most Likely), starring Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield. Hawke plays an estranged father who suddenly "kidnaps" his emo-punk son and takes him to New York City, where he experiences a whole coming-of-age on the streets of Manhattan with new friends. The film is set in the 80's around the punk rock scene and it seems to have a killer soundtrack, of which many of the reviews quoted rave about. Hailee Steinfeld also stars along with Emile Hirsch and Emily Mortimer. They give away a lot (too much) in this trailer, but it actually looks pretty good. "Have you ever heard of punk?"

This could be the closest thing we have to seeing Asa Butterfield as Spider-Man, or at least emo Peter Parker

Screen Media has released the first trailer for American Splendor writers/directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s coming-of-age drama Ten Thousand Saints. Set in 1988, during the transitional period in New York City when the yuppies started buying up all the “bad” neighborhoods and transforming them into upscale real estate, the film stars Asa Butterfield as an unhappy, bored teenager from Vermont who—after an interaction with a girl—decides to move to New York City, closer to his burnout father (Ethan Hawke). He subsequently develops a closer relationship with said girl (played by Hailee Steinfeld), starts hanging around a straight edge band, and attempts to find himself. I caught the movie at Sundance earlier this year (click here for my review), and while Butterfield’s character is wholly uninteresting, the film’s saving grace is Ethan Hawke. The guy instantly makes any movie he’s in at least 30% better, »

Civil War will find the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe divided when politicians try to reign in their power with a governing body.
This will be Marvel's most star-studded movie yet, as franchise veterans Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Rudd reprise their heroic characters.
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had recently been working double time, filming “Captain America: Civil War” in Atlanta while flying prospective Peter Parkers to the set to audition for the next “Spider-Man” franchise. Asa Butterfield, Charlie Rowe, and Matthew Lintz were among the contenders, but the web-slinging role has gone to Tom Holland, a 19-year-old from the U.K. whose previous credits include “The Impossible” with Naomi Watts, and the BBC miniseries “Wolf Hall.” Sony Pictures Producer Amy Pascal said, “Sony, Marvel [Producer Kevin Feige], and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” “Spider-Man” is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, earning more than $4 billion worldwide. Holland will immediately start filming in Atlanta, »
After what seems like one of the longest casting processes in a while, Marvel and Sony have settled on the next actor to play Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego Spider-Man. The search literally took months, involved names both expected and unexpected, but finally concluded yesterday. Putting on the costume will be young Tom Holland, while stepping behind the camera will be Jon Watts. Not familiar with either of those names that Marvel Cinematic Universe godfather Kevin Feige saw fit to hire? Fear not, as I’ll give you the rundown on who they are below, along with who they beat out for their plum new gigs in each case. First up, I should remind you where the character has gone before. We’re getting our third incarnation of Spidey, with Tobey Maguire as Peter in the first three films that Sony put out (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3 »

A few more details have turned up, following yesterday's announcement that Tom Holland is to be the new big screen Spider-Man, and the Jon Watts - helmer of the incoming Cop Car - is to direct the next 2017 standalone movie for the webslinger.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Watts himself wasn't involved in the search for the new Spider-Man, simply because Sony and Marvel were looking for a director at the same time as they were hunting the new Peter Parker. Tom Holland will indeed debut his Spider-Man take in Captain America: Civil War (although this hasn't been confirmed by Marvel), and over 1500 actors were seen as part of the extensive casting process.
The casting team did indeed arrive at a shortlist of six at the end of May, »
Tom Holland may have had a competitive edge over his fellow Spider-Man candidates.
The British actor has been posting videos of his own stunts and acrobatic skills on Instagram for months, which could have helped him secure the role.

Holland is expected to make his superhero debut in Captain America: Civil War »
When it was first announced that Spider-Man was finally going to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was also revealed that whoever played Peter Parker will first appear in an unspecified Marvel movie, before the Spider-Man reboot hit theaters in summer 2017. Although it has never been officially been confirmed, it is widely known that this mystery movie is Captain America: Civil War, since the top contenders were flown out to Atlanta, where Captain America: Civil War is shooting, to test for the role. Now that Tom Holland has landed the coveted part, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that he actually tested with two of the stars from Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Age of Ultron, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, who helped with the decision making process.
Earlier today, Marvel and Sony Pictures announced that 19-year-old Tom Holland has been cast as the new Spider-Man, with the actor beating out other top contenders such as Asa Butterfield, Charlie Rowe, Matthew Lintz and Charlie Plummer. The studios also settled on relatively new director Jon Watts, whose film Cop Car hits theaters this August, to direct the superhero movie which takes Peter Parker back to high school. Variety has details on how Marvel and Sony landed on their new star and director, including that Spidey will only have a brief cameo in Captain America: Civil War.
When Marvel and Sony struck a deal to bring Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was revealed that the new Spider-Man will first appear in one Marvel movie before the stand alone Spider-Man reboot, set to hit theaters in July 2017. While this still hasn't been officially confirmed by the studios, Tom Holland »

The site confirms that Peter Parker will first appear in Captain America: Civil War before headlining a trilogy of movies. The studios looked at over 1500 actors for the coveted role, but were assisted by Marvel's regular casting director Sarah Finn to help them get that list down to just six; Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield, Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Plummer and Charlie Rowe. Robert Downey Jr. is set to share scenes with Spider-Man and participated in screen tests with each of the actors above as Marvel looked to find out who had the best chemistry with the Avenger. However, while the decision did »
