What lies ahead for the Spider-Man franchise?

21 August 2014 1:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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...

Josh Soriano’s Five Best “Old Dark House” Films

14 July 2014 3:07 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

On a stormy night, amidst the the trees on a fog-shrouded​ hilltop, a large house sits. Inside, a group of people have come together to hear the reading of a will. As the night continues, the ​​storm’s grasp strengthens and renders it impossible for the group to leave. They’ll have to spend the night. However, one amongst them is a murderer and will do anything in his/her power to be the next heir, including killing the guests off one by one. Before daybreak the killer will traverse throughout the house by secret passages, terrorizing each guest and creating a panic, while our protagonists race to solve the mystery.

Sound familiar? It should. It’s the classic scenario ​of what are known as ​”Old Dark House​​​” films that were popularized in the 30s and 40s in cinema. If you’ve ever watched a Saturday night horror film on basic television, »

Re-Animating a Master of Horror: Stuart Gordon and the Art of Re-Animation

9 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »


The heat thuds in the chest, the pulse races and the blood surges. We are not in the midst of a suspenseful and terrifying horror film where our emotions are being manipulated by the puppeteer filmmaker. We are preparing to speak with Master of Horror Stuart Gordon whose 1985 masterpiece Re-Animator has received an all new limited home entertainment release. Whilst Gordon has left the world of horror cinema to return to the theatre, he took us back into the past, to trace the journey of a child who grew into a master of genre.

Not far removed from any discussion involving Stuart Gordon is the King of the B’s Roger Corman. The former is to H.P. Lovecraft what the latter was to Edgar Allan Poe. During the span of just four short years beginning in 1960 with The Fall of the House of Usher, Corman directed his eight film Poe cycle, »

‘The Pit and the Pendulum’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

19 May 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: John Kerr, Barbara Steel, Vincent PriceLuana Anders, Antony Carbone, Patrick Westwood, Lynette Bernay, Mary Menzies, Charles Victor | Written by Richard Matheson | Directed by Roger Corman

This week has been a good week for Vincent Price fans and Arrow Video. Not only have we got Theatre of Blood, we now also have Pit and the Pendulum in another steelbook release. The Pit and the Pendulum is the second film in Roger Corman’s Edgar Allen Poe series of films (Fall of the House of Usher was first), and although Masque of the Red Death is arguably the better, this is a close second.

The Pit and the Pendulum is actually a very short story with not that much content available to make a full length movie from, so Richard Matheson took some liberties with the story when adapting it for the big screen.  With elements of Fall of the »

Where Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaves Sony's superhero universe

17 April 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Hunt 18 Apr 2014 - 06:00

What hints did Amazing Spider-Man 2 give us about the rest of Sony's planned Spider-Man franchise?

This article contains spoilers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may have lacked the next-movie teaser Marvel Studios likes to pin onto their films, but that doesn't mean we haven't got any clue as to where the Spider-Man franchise is going. With Sony's stated goal of turning the property into its own universe of films, we got to thinking: what clues are there in Amazing Spider-Man 2 that might get followed up as the franchise expands?

Just so you don't get spoiled, we're going to put a big picture up here. After that, it's spoiler territory...

Still here? Right then...


Felicity Jones' all-too-brief appearances were a highlight of Amazing Spider-Man 2, and not least because anyone familiar with Spider-Man has »

Felicity Jones' Amazing Spider-Man 2 character revealed

25 March 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There's been an awful lot of talk about which character British actress Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) will be playing in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with much of the speculation suggesting that she'll be portraying Felicia Hardy, a.k.a. The Black Cat. Well, it turns out said speculation was right on the money, as an official casting sheet for the Czech dub of the film confirming that Felicia is set to make an appearance in the upcoming superhero sequel, which will presumably set up the Black Cat for a larger role in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th in the UK and on May 1st in North America, with returning stars Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Sally Field (Aunt May), Chris Zylka (Flash Thompson), Campbell Scott (Richard Parker), Embeth Davidtz (Mary Parker), Martin Sheen (Ben Parker) and Denis Leary »

During last night's episode of The Walking Dead, a one-minute featurette aired with new behind-the-scenes footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, featuring Jamie Foxx as Electro. The Walking Dead special effects guru Greg Nicotero is seen chatting with The Amazing Spider-Man 2's visual effects supervisor Jerome Chen, as they compare the techniques used on both the AMC series and this upcoming superhero sequel. Check out the new video, then read on for details about the possible confirmation of a long-rumored character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The Black Cat. Felicity Jones hinted back in July that she is playing Black Cat, who is the girlfriend of Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) in this superhero sequel. »

A Cult Favorite Gets His Due

10 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Book review: Edgar G. Ulmer: A Filmmaker at the Margins by Noah Isenberg  (University of California Press)Edgar Ulmer is one of the great curiosities of Hollywood history. He collaborated with Billy Wilder, Curt and Robert Siodmak, Eugen Shüfftan and Fred Zinnemann on the celebrated German silent film People on Sunday but never achieved anything like their great success in America. His most prominent picture, The Black Cat (1934) with Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, turned out to be his only mainstream studio picture. Why? What happened that relegated Ulmer to the fringes of American cinema?Ulmer barely eked out a living making B Westerns, Yiddish-language features, health-care...
