The hype is strong in this one…
Last week we opened with the newly released trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and how it might be one of the finest teasers ever made – despite what Kylo Ren says.
A few days later, out comes one for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Can You Give Us A Minute To Recover, Disney!?
It’s unfair to compare the two. Rogue One’s is far superior, and GotGV2’s is only a ‘sneak peak’ according to director James Gunn. »

We’ve had a couple of big trailers this week, and we’ll kick things off with Logan, as 20th Century Fox gave us our first look at Hugh Jackman’s final X-Men outing with the release of the first trailer for the March 2017 release, which is confirmed as taking place in the year 2024 in the post-X-Men: Days of Future Past timeline, according to director James Mangold. If for some reason you haven’t already seen the trailer – or you just want to revisit it – you can watch the red band version here, »

Once upon a time, Sony had extremely vast, extremely expansive plans for Spider-Man. The studio owns the movie rights for the character, of course, and they saw what Marvel Studios was doing and decided they wanted in on that action. They were going to turn the Spider-Man franchise into its own cinematic universe. They felt that since they had access to all of his great rogues, and his popular supporting cast, that they had enough material to make a whole Spider-Man world- complete with sequels, spinoffs, and offshoots.
Then those plans all came crashing down, quite famously, and Sony soon found themselves at the Marvel Studios offices asking, "Instead of continuing to build our own universe, can we just get Spider-Man into yours?" And a deal was struck.
Many of the particulars of the deal have remained shrouded in mystery. As of now, we know that Spider-Man made his much-ballyhooed »

Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't released until next July, but with shooting now over, it appears as if plans for a sequel are already being put in place. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are clearly happy with their collaboration because Tom Holland shed some light on where things currently stand with the follow-up in a recent interview with Wwd (via Spider-Man News) at the New York Film Festival. "My next project, I can’t tell you about, but we’ve just finished ‘Spider-Man’ and we’re talking about the second one and who the villain is going to be and where we’re going," Holland revealed. A sequel was to be expected, but it's interesting that they're already discussing that. Sony planned on releasing new chapters of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise every two years though, so it's entirely possible that the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel could start shooting before that movie is even released! »
Tom Holland’s Child’s Play is widely regarded as a horror classic, and for good reason… it’s a damned good film that launched one hell of a franchise. Was it always that way, though? Brad Dourif (the voice of Chucky) chimed… Continue Reading →

We're still a ways off from Spider-Man: Homecoming debuting but that isn't stopping the team from conceptualizing the sequel. Come inside for more information!
It seems as if movie industry is pulling the trigger on as many big name sequels, as possible, before knowing if the initial movie will be a success. Warner Bros. just did it with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. 20th Century Fox even did it with Avatar, despite it consistently being delayed. Now, Disney/Sony seem to be following that method with their newest collaboration, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It's been said a lot - like a lot a lot - but I'm gonna say it again: Tom Holland rocked the shit as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. He came, he crawled, he conquered. His solo movie was fast-tracked, and Marvel’s 2017 calendar was made all the better for it. Marvel's only hope is that everyone likes this new Spidey, because according to Holland... Read More »

Last week it was revealed by Sony chairman Tom Rothman that plans for an expanded Spider-Man Universe that would run alongside the Marvel Cinematic Universe was in development, and now the web slinger himself has opened up about the future of the franchise after Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“We’re talking about the second one and who the villain is going to be and where we’re going,” he told Women’s Wear Daily at the New York Film Festival.
With Vulture and Shocker confirmed for Spider-Man: Homecoming, could Spider-Man 2 feature use the recently rumoured Nightwatch as the villain? Or will they bring in classic characters like Doc Ock, Green Goblin and The Sandman? It has also been rumoured for some time that Sony are keen on a Venom solo movie, so there is a chance The Symbiote is on the cards too.

As Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben used to always say before he was brutally killed in an attack that someone with spider-powers could’ve easily prevented, “with great star-making role in high-profile superhero movie comes great responsibility.” Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Tom Holland is well aware of this, and he already understands the price you have to pay if you want to be Spider-Man. Granted, his father-figure wasn’t killed or anything, but he does have to wear a pretty snug costume while filming. That’s its own kind of responsibility.
As reported by Variety, Holland offered up his opinion on the Spidey suit at the New York Film Festival premiere of The Lost City Of Z, saying that it’s “not the greatest thing” to wear. Still, though, he adds that “when it’s uncomfortable, you just have to remind yourself of the long list of actors that would love »

As we get closer and closer to Avengers: Infinity War starting production next month, new details are starting to surface about this highly-anticipated production. Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo have teased that there will be upwards of 67 characters in this massive adventure, although we haven't gotten a full cast list quite yet. Many have wondered if one of these characters will be Spider-Man, who made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in this year's Captain America: Civil War, and it seems that there may be a deal in the works for this beloved character to return in Infinity War. While promoting his new film The Lost City of Z at the New York Film Festival, Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, teased that it may happen, but nothing is set in stone.
"It's all up in the air. I believe some sort of deal is in the mix, but I'm unclear as to what that deal is. »
Spider-Man: Homecoming has wrapped shooting, but we've still seen nothing official from the highly anticipated release. Chances are that Marvel wants to keep the focus on Doctor Strange and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer before promoting it, but after being treated to an array of set photos, we do at least have an interesting new interview with Tom Holland to keep us going! Asked by Variety at the premiere of The Lost City of Z about donning the costume for Spider-Man: Homecoming, the British actor replied: "The suit’s not the greatest thing, but sometimes when it’s uncomfortable, you just have to remind yourself of the long list of actors that would love to be in that suit and you just go, ‘do you know what, f*ck it. I’m the luckiest kid alive. I deserve to be here and I’m going to give it my best. »
Tom Holland admits that Spider-Man’s outfit is a little snug, but he’s made his peace with the downside of slipping on the wall-crawler’s spandex.
“The suit’s not the greatest thing, but sometimes when it’s uncomfortable, you just have to remind yourself of the long list of actors that would love to be in that suit and you just go, ‘do you know what, f**k it. I’m the luckiest kid alive,'” Holland said at Saturday’s New York Film Festival premiere of “The Lost City of Z.” “‘I deserve to be here and I’m going to give it my best.'”
Holland’s commitment to playing the superhero in next summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” extends to the film’s stunt work. He’s often the one wearing the mask as Spidey scales tall buildings or administers a beatdown to crooks and villains. »

Gray tells People that he has kept in contact with Pitt in the weeks since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce after about two years of marriage and 12 years together.
“I’ve exchanged a lot of emails with him,” he said at the New York Film Festival premiere at Lincoln Center. “I love him to death. I’ve been here, obviously, not there. I’ll see him soon. He is the greatest guy. »

Director James Gray’s Nyff closer The Lost City of Z is a visually stunning film. Shot in 35mm on location in Columbia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, it lovingly renders the English landscape and Amazonian jungle alike. You can feel the humid heat of the Amazon, the cool breeze of the countryside, the rush of wind over the sea, the stillness of the jungle river. Periods of silence punctuate scenes of a raft journey upriver, the battlefields of World War I, struggles through uncharted territory, as men blend into the oppressive flora or battle with a raging river. The cinematography of The Lost City of Z is sublime, moving, and terrifyingly beautiful.
It’s a shame then that the rest of the film doesn’t justify its own beauty. The Lost City of Z falls into the trap of being just as romantic as its rather deluded central character, »

“The Lost City of Z” director James Gray has never shot a movie with a digital camera, and he’s not planning on trying it anytime soon. He certainly resisted it for his new film, the epic story of British explorer Percy Fawcett’s search for a lost civilization in the Amazon jungle.
The movie, based on the 2009 bestselling book of the same name by David Grann, stars Charlie Hunnam as Fawcett, Sienna Miller as his wife Nina, and Robert Pattinson as Henry Costin, a British corporal who joins Fawcett on his search for an indigenous society. Tom Holland (“Captain America: Civil War”) plays Fawcett’s son Jack, who also joins his father on the expedition to South America.

Kurtz, the fabled central figure in “Heart of Darkness,” entered a primitive jungle world and made himself over into its homicidal master. His colonial malevolence was echoed in two landmark films of the ’70s: “Aguirre, the Wrath of God,” in which Klaus Kinski’s bug-eyed, raving conquistador led a jungle odyssey into madness, and “Apocalypse Now,” in which Martin Sheen’s burnt-out assassin discovered, in Marlon Brando, a different kind of Kurtz — a philosopher of war’s evil, a leader who had gone “insane” only because he was the only one who saw Vietnam with utter clarity. But in “The Lost City of Z,” set within the British Empire during the early decades of the 20th century, the English explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) spends years seeking out the natives of the Amazonian jungle — and the mystery behind them — with a sense of purpose that is never less than high and mighty, »

If not for the ineffably modern hollowness of Charlie Hunnam’s speaking voice, or the distinct rind of 21st century celebrity that still clings to co-star Robert Pattinson like the dying traces of yesterday’s cologne, someone could easily be fooled into thinking that “The Lost City of Z” was shot 40 years ago. In fact, that might be the greatest compliment a viewer could pay writer-director James Gray (“The Immigrant”), a man who seems increasingly determined to revive the glory days of our national cinema, when movies were pictures and auteurs were mavericks. Gray pulls from the past as liberally as Quentin Tarantino, but without the ego — he doesn’t try to process his influences through the slaughterhouse of his own fetishes, he simply wants to Make American Movies Great Again.
Uncommonly sumptuous, patient and textured for a movie with such little emotional heat or staying power, “The Lost City of Z »

The Lost City of Z, James Gray’s buzz-worthy adventure movie, is set to bring the curtain down on New York Film Festival later this evening, but we now have confirmation that Amazon Studios and Bleecker Street have zeroed in on a theatrical release date.
News hails from The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Gray’s starry epic is now booked in for release on April 21, 2017. It’ll open via select theaters first, before rolling out nationwide. Amazon, having fended off strong competition to land the adaptation of David Grann’s eponymous novel, will set about sussing out marketing and distribution plans soon after Nyff draws to a close.
King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam leads the charge for The Lost City of Z as Percy Fawcett, a former British military man who puts everything on the line to uncover the forgotten settlement, even if that means plotting course for the heart of the Amazon jungle. »

If you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War, then you’ll know that Marvel presented a very different take on Baron Zemo with Daniel Bruhl’s villain, but some unused concept art has arrived online by way of Marvel Cinematic Universe on Facebook which shows a more traditional look for the character, complete with his purple mask.
Now updated with a hi-res look at the concept art courtesy of Andy Park…
What do you make of the concept art. Should Helmut Zemo have been shown in his mask, or was it unnecessary? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
