The new season of Cinema Retro (Season 11) is now upon us. Subscribers in the UK and Europe already have issue #31 in their hot little hands. We expect the new issue to arrive in our American offices by the first week of February. There was a two-week delay to due factors outside our control relating to shipping schedules in the UK over the holidays that resulted in a backlog of cargo shipments. Rest assured, the minute it arrives, it will be mailed out to our readers in America, Canada, South and Central America, Asia and Australia.
This issue is loaded with exciting articles including:
A tribute to the immortal Pam Grier, the "First Lady" of kick-ass cinema. Revisiting "Bandolero!" starring Raquel Welch, Dean Martin and James Stewart Exclusive interview with film preservationist Charles Cohen of the Cohen Film Collection. Our "Film in Focus" is a lengthy article dedicated to that great »

Thanks to our friends at Latino Review, we have some potentially mind-blowing details for what we will see happen in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and more. The details also include the inclusion of Spider-Man. The deal between Marvel and Sony has reportedly gone through.
I will tell you right off the bat that there are some major Spoilers ahead. Latino Review is always pretty spot on with the intel they get, but until there's confirmation, we will still treat it as a rumor.
Before we begin, though, they make it very clear that Andrew Garfield will not be a part of any future Spider-Man deal. (There have been some rumors that Garfield would appear in a movie with Tobey Maguire also reprising his role as the web-slinger, but those seemingly aren't true.)
Now on to the meat of the article...Spoilers ahead for what might happen »

Welcome To Issue 78!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: I've learned my lesson not to get excited on Twitter about things I'm in the process of reporting. But, I have the information I promised, because I promised.
Quietly he tweets this tweet, hyping his column next week, because he thinks he knows the fate of Spider-Man.

January 11th was too early. And I had to sit on my hands through Golden Globe coverage which I know you guys don't care about, but the world does and I didn't want them to squelch my superhero movie news. And the worst part is the people that Do notice you hinting about stuff are Not the people you Want to notice you hinting about stuff.
If you know what I mean. »
We pay tribute to Brian Clemens, a screenwriter and producer whose work lit up 1970s cult TV and beyond...
Brian Clemens, who died earlier this week aged 83, was a highly respected screenwriter and producer both for TV and Film. He will chiefly be remembered for his work on The Avengers, The New Avengers and The Professionals but his credits were numerous and encapsulated a real golden age of cult, escapist television from the 1950s onwards.
Clemens was born in Croydon in July 1931. He spent his National Service as a Weapons Training Instructor. After spending time as a copywriter, he established himself as a scriptwriter - sometimes using the pseudonym "Tony O'Grady" - O'Grady being his mother's maiden name. He received his first commission from the BBC at the age of 24 - a thriller called Valid For Single Journey Only. He went on to write for many of the big TV »
British screenwriter Brian Clemens died over the weekend, his family confirmed to the BBC. He was 83.
As the writer and producer of series including “The Avengers,” “The New Avengers” and “The Professionals,” Clemens is lauded as one of the definitive writers of the British action-adventure television genre that exploded in the 1960s and ’70s.
Clemens also went on to write for U.S.-based shows including “Remington Steele,” “Perry Mason” and “Highlander.” His feature film credits include “The Golden Voyage of Sinbad” and “Highlander II: The Quickening.”
Brian Clemens had more great ideas than almost any other TV writer. His mantra was wonderfully simple – "Arse to chair, pen to paper". Rip.

TV writer and producer Brian Clemens has died, aged 83.
Honoured by the Queen in 2010 for services to broadcasting and drama, he passed away on Saturday (January 10), his family confirmed.

Brian Clemens, one of the defining writers of British television in the 20th century, has passed away aged 83. Best known for his work on The Avengers and numerous other cult series of the telefantasy genre, he also scripted shows across the pond such as Diagnosis: Murder and created my own personal favourite The Professionals. Still shown on ITV4 to this day, it concerned the adventures of a pair of laddish hard men operating for fictional government department CI5, and put stars Martin Shaw and the late Lewis Collins on the map.
Born in Croydon, Clemens had his first short story published before hitting his teens and went on to write for television and film full time after a stint in advertising. He performed scribbling duties on a wide variety of programmes including Danger Man and Richard The Lionheart, but it was delivering the pilot episode of The Avengers that made his name. »
