We’re swinging ever closer to the release date of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the much-anticipated first Spidey solo movie to come from the unprecedented deal between Marvel Studios and Sony. With only a couple of months left to go now before it arrives, the studio is continuing to tease us with new promotional material and the latest arrives in the form of a few stills, which you can see below.
We say tease because this set of images hold off on the Spider-Man-centric part of the movie and instead highlight Peter Parker’s high school life. Specifically, we have a shot of Peter (Tom Holland) and his best friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) in the school hallway, one of Peter getting stuck into some classroom science and another one of him skulking through the deserted halls with Ned looking shocked to the side. Lastly, the fourth image spotlights Peter and Liz Allen »

Henry Bevan on the modern teen movie…
Jerky jocks; nebbish nerds; the girl next door who is unfairly called a whore; the hot girl; the bitchy cheerleader; the ugly girl who’s actually a swan; the self-loathing teachers; teachers who sleep with students; teachers who are bad at their jobs; crowded school corridors; cool kids who drive; losers who get the bus; clueless mums; perfect siblings; house parties with professional DJs; sex (sometimes); beer; horny virgins; and prom.
Teen movie tropes are well known. Whether the teenagers are forming a witches coven, or if promises are kept, being superheroes, they abide by rules that haven’t changed much since John Hughes.
Hughes created our perception of how fictional and real teenagers should act in high school. He understood how deeply emotional teenagers are and he wasn’t afraid of his films being emotionally truthful. Every main character in a Hughes movie is an outsider, »

John Hughes was a beloved, respected filmmaker known for writing and directing classics such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and more. But there are plenty of movies that he scripted, only to have someone else direct them. Movies such as Mr. Mom, Home Alone and more had scripts from […]

When I look back at raunchy 80s comedies I can’t help but to smile at how amazing they were. Let’s take a little dive into exactly what I’m talking about. First of all, I’m not referring to anything John Hughes. Those are all well-written high quality films that don’t scream “comedy” all in one breath. Movies like Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and The Breakfast Club all had serious elements to them. I’m referring to the super duper cheesy 80s flicks that featured a ton of nudity, lewd behavior, and usually some amount of spring break, school, or resort

We prefer to remember these monumental moments in teen film makeouts instead of our own high school experiences. Please join us on a butterfly-inducing trip down memory lane.
A Walk to Remember (2002)
Shortly before making us collapse in tears, A Walk to Remember has us swooning at the sight of Jamie (Mandy Moore) and Landon’s (Shane West) first non-theater obligated kiss. Like the entirety of the first date Landon planned, the kiss is perfect.

There are plenty of movies today that discuss the troubles of being an adolescent as well as a 20-something trying to make it in the world. But if you are a little bit older you’ll know that the 80s absolutely ruled that department once upon a time. Movies like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles and basically anything by John Hughes that featured The Brat Pack were humongous hits among the 16-35 demographic. Another movie that defined the 80s was none other than Joel Schumacher’s St Elmo’s Fire. According to Cinemablend: The cast of

In Sam Raimi's early 2000s Spider-Man franchise, Kirsten Dunst appears as the bubbly, popular, redheaded Mary Jane Watson, one of Peter Parker's most iconic love interests. With a new version of the teenage web-slinger's story on the way in the form of Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans have been trying to determine if Zendaya, whose casting as "Michelle" was announced to much fanfare, is the next person to step into Mj's shoes. Shortly after The Wrap confirmed that Zendaya's role was indeed Mary Jane last Summer, we went on a visit to Spider-Man: Homecoming's Atlanta set, where we assumed we'd get a straight answer about the true nature of her role. The short version? We're still not totally sure who she's playing. The long version? Well, keep reading.

The indie director only had a two low-budget film credits to his name when he was tapped by Sony and Marvel to rejuvenate the fading superhero franchise. His previous film, “Cop Car,” a well-reviewed thriller, cost less than $1 million to produce, a fraction of what “Spider-Man: Homecoming” spends on any given day of shooting. But Watts impressed the studios with his vision for taking Spider-Man and his alter ego Peter Parker back to high school, focusing on what it would be like to balance homework assignments and finding prom dates with fending off a super powered bad guy like the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Watts admits that he’s nervous about taking on such an iconic character and says he’s been working around the clock editing the film in advance of its July 6 release date. He becomes the third »

With a multi-generational reunion of sorts between Brat Pack alum Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy’s son in the works, we’re taking the opportunity to catch up with all of the former ’80s teen phenoms — and their offspring — over 30 years after they first earned their iconic nickname.
During a recent appearance on The Moms, McCarthy revealed that his 15-year-old son, Sam, will appear in an upcoming movie called All These Small Moments alongside the famous red-head.

When John Hughes passed away in 2009, he left a huge void, not only in people's hearts, but in Hollywood. He had written and directed most of the popular family-friendly teen films of the '80s, which became cult classics and still air on cable today—Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Uncle Buck, Home Alone...the list goes on and on. Many teen movies that he took no part in making, which are much racier and contain more complex plot lines, became popular in the last 20 years, notably American Pie, Mean Girls and Pitch Perfect. Nowadays, such films are rarely made and do not enjoy the same level of success. Can anyone »
So I was at Starbucks this morning getting a coffee when the cashier, noticing my Spider-Man jacket, started talking about the new trailer. His big takeaway from the trailer was how ironic it was that Michael Keaton was playing The Vulture, a character similar to the Birdman character from the film of the same name. In my mind I thought "Screw you, he's Batman."
The new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer is out and there is a lot to talk about. You get a little peek into what the film is about. The Vulture is apparently pissed about losing his job and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect his family. According to an article we posted earlier on LRMOnline, The Vulture was running a company that was cleaning up the messes of the superhero fights the world has had to live through since Tony Stark let the world know he was Iron Man. »

Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by new releases or premieres. Since it’s Chicago Week here at The A.V. Club, we’re looking back on some essential Chicago movies, set (and often filmed) in the Windy City.
Uncle Buck (1989)
The greater Chicago area had few cinematic boosters more tireless than John Hughes. The city was the setting for nearly every youth-centric story he told, from the detention hall of The Breakfast Club to the suburban streets of Home Alone. But while the films often prominently feature Chicago landmarks or residences, Uncle Buck feels different. Not just because it’s the only film Hughes directed besides Planes, Trains, And Automobiles (which also starred his frequent collaborator John Candy) to follow a grown-up rather than kids—but because Candy’s character, Buck Russell, is the closest thing imaginable to a sentient embodiment of the Chicago the filmmaker loved.

Ben Wheatley’s new film Free Fire is a Boston set action-thriller starring Cillian Murphy, Brie Larson and many more, which sees a meeting between different gangs break out into a bloody shootout and an all out game of survival. It is also entirely set in a warehouse; a decision that Wheatley uses to create an incredibly effective film of utter carnage. To mark its release in cinemas this Friday, we have collected five other films either entirely or mostly set in one location.
Rear Window (1954)
Known as one of, if not the greatest thriller of all time, Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece is testament to the fact that the simplest premise can often be the most effective. It follows L.B. ‘Jeff’ Jefferies, a wheel-bound photographer who spies on his neighbours to pass the time and becomes convinced that one has murdered his wife. As well as offering a fascinating »

In Adam Sandler’s 1998 comedy The Wedding Singer, the actor’s emotionally distraught Robbie Hart discovers a selection of mismatched outsiders he deems “the mutants over at table 9.” Imagine an entire film centering on the wedding attendees that have all been relegated to just such a position at a wedding reception, and you have a solid idea of what Table 19 at first appears to be shooting for. Yet, while the film clearly purports itself to be an alternative take on the concept of a wedding comedy, it cannot resist the temptation to embrace cliché before the credits roll.
Written and directed by Jeffrey Blitz of the Comedy Central series Review, the film follows post-breakup Eloise (Anna Kendrick) as she and a group of strangers wind up sharing seats at the titular table. Before long, the awkward chitchat kicks in, and the gang — including a struggling married couple (Craig Robinson »

In the farthest corner of a wedding reception sit the undesirables: the Kepps, Bina (Lisa Kudrow) and Jerry (Craig Robinson), a passive-aggressive couple invited by the father of the groom; Jo (June Squibb), the elderly former nanny of the bride’s family, almost swallowed by her hot-pink cake hat; the bride’s creepy cousin Walter (Stephen Merchant), on parole for crimes unknown; Renzo (Tony Revolori), the sex-obsessed teenage son of a deceased family friend; and Eloise (Anna Kendrick), the ex-girlfriend of the best man, deposed from her original spot at the front by a new flame. Yes, it’s The Breakfast Club remade with adults, complete with secrets waiting to be spilled, a soundtrack of ’80s hits (performed by a tireless wedding band), and a pot-smoking interlude. Kendrick even has Molly Ringwald’s slightly open mouth, minus the full lips, and Revolori could pass for a dorkier Judd Nelson. And »
