Many fans of Sam Raimi’s initial Spider-Man trilogy were skeptical when – only five years later – director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) delivered The Amazing Spider-Man to theaters. Some balked at the thought of rebooting the franchise so soon after Spider-Man 3, while others were hopeful that this new version could rectify the mistakes of that previous film and give the character a fresh start.
Reaction to The Amazing Spider-Man may still be a bit mixed, given the film’s tendency to tread on a bit too much familiar ground regarding the origin of everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood webslinger. However, one point that most fans can agree on is that ...

It’s a sad, sad day for Marvel fans. Remember how we were all speculating a while back about the Marvel Cinematic Universe merging with other franchises? Well, Spider-Man may still join the McU in the near future but I’m afraid the same cannot be said about the X-Men. Evan Peters (American Horror Story) has been recently cast as Quicksilver in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Yes, that’s the same Quicksilver that is (or was?) supposed to be in The Avengers 2. Unless Peters is allowed to reprise his role in the latter, the chances of merging both universes are quite slim.
What a mess. How could they let this happen? Well, as it turns out, Bryan Singer outfoxed Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios executive Kevin Feige simply by being open about his intentions with Quicksilver, instead of playing the “I will neither confirm nor deny” game. »

It stands to reason that if a franchise spawns 12 films and 5 television series that every once in a while you’re going to look back, maybe watch a few episodes from 20 years ago and say “Holy sh*t, isn’t that Teri Hatcher operating the transporter and then sleeping with the trashy looking alien loner who she beamed aboard??”, or something to that effect.
Star Trek, as one of the most expansive franchises in TV history, has been littered with a barrage of stars both pre and post stardom, including Kirstie Alley (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan), Christian Slater & Kim Cattrall (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) and who could forget that playful little alien scamp running around the Enterprise in the 1993 Next Generation episode “Dark Page”. You may know her better as Mary-Jane Watson in the Spider-Man films, a.k.a Kirsten Dunst.

Rumors were swirling yesterday regarding the current financial situation at Sony and whether or not it would cost them the rights to the Spider-man franchise. After three successful films with Sam Raimi and one with Marc Webb plus The Amazing Spider-man 2 slated for next year, it seemed an odd choice for Sony to part with arguably their most lucrative property. As it turns out, they won't. Ain't It Cool reached out to Amy Pascal, co-chair of Sony Entertainment, to ask if »

Watch On the Road online at SundanceNow (photo: Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund) On the Road, Walter Salles’ film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s semi-autobiographical novel, is now available on SundanceNow. Initially screened at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where it drew mixed reviews, and later reedited for the Toronto Film Festival and the North American market, On the Road stars Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy, the upcoming Inside Llewyn Davis), Sam Riley (the upcoming Byzantium and Maleficent), and Kristen Stewart — who seemed to be everywhere in 2012: besides On the Road, Stewart was also seen in Rupert Sanders’ summer hit Snow White and the Huntsman, opposite Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, and, in her final appearance as Bella Swan, Bill Condon’s late fall hit The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, co-starring Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

The superhero team up is truly one of the greatest things that can happen in a comic book. Two fierce warriors from different worlds coming together to battle an evil that they couldn’t possibly topple alone is always a good idea, and as long as there has been stories of heroes, there have been stories of heroes coming together.
The best team up stories were infused with tension, and often even resulted in some of the most badass fights imaginable between the heroes themselves. But team-up stories haven’t always worked out so well – in fact some of the worst comic book stories imaginable feature some of the crappiest team-ups of all time. And I’m not talking about an ‘annoying’, let’s try to forget it, 90s X-Men’ crappy – I’m talking about a ‘let’s abort the idea that this story even existed’ level of bad.

James Franco thinks that sex isn’t just for titillation in movies. “Directors are trying to use more sex in films and certainly on places like HBO, where these cable people have lots of sex. Gus Van Sant told me in his pilot [Boss for Starz] he had a sex scene but they told him, There’s not enough nudity. We need ‘pay-cable moments.’ They’re actually pushing for more sexual content. And if they’re done the right way, it won’t just be a ‘pay-cable moment,’ it will actually be intrinsic to the story. Sex has the potential for being a great storytelling device. But it just hasn’t been used up until now.”

Whatever good deeds they happen to gift upon the world, the superheroes we see on our screens also seem to have taken up positions as “purveyors of ill-judged decisions,” many of which could have been totally avoided, had they stopped for a moment to consider what it was that was happening. No one can be perfect all the time, of course, and everybody is human (although there is a Norse God and a demon on this list, to be fair), and the superpowers present are a mixture of natural and man-made. That aside… accidents happen, right?
The general conclusion we can draw from this, though, is that sometimes these guys get a bit too excitable and either get caught up in their plans, or in the moment entirely, causing them to forget that they need to use their brains now and again; some of these decisions are impulsive and were made during a fight, »

Cinelinx has a close encounter with the new Dark Skies Blu-ray!
This review covers the Blu-ray/DVD 2-pack version. (Note: The video clips do reveal some plot spoilers)
A family discovers a mysterious, terrifying entity is stalking them, leading them all to the brink of madness as they try to discover the truth. Stars Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton.
Written and directed by Scott Stewart
Jason Blum, the producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, brings us another low-budget film with big-budget thrills, thanks to the writing and deft direction of Scott Stewart. Dark Skies is an entertaining scare-fest that doesn't rely on CGI, but rather on crafting a truly creepy atmosphere in which the characters reside.
I won't give too much of the plot away, as that would ruin much of the movie for you, but it does involve a series of situations that makes a young suburban family think someone, »

Joss Whedon’s a pretty amazing writer when it comes to super-heroes. His too-brief stint on The Astonishing X-Men (and yes, I count 25 issues as too brief when the books were as fantastic as his were; try the motion-comic versions on various streaming services if you can’t get your hands on the books) almost a decade ago demonstrated showed that the guy was not only well-versed in comic book history, but he understood how to use that knowledge of characters and their respective histories and relationships to craft what is arguably the best X-Men run since Claremont/Byrne.
Then the man did the near-impossible by bringing Marvel’s The Avengers to the screen in a way that appealed to not only the geeks, but given its box office take, apparently athletes, basket cases, princesses and criminals too. Given the overwhelming number of moving parts in the script (like trying »

The advertising industry in America has become so ridiculously homogenized it almost feels as if creativity itself has died a slow and painful death. Take the remake of Evil Dead for instance. We got your standard stuff. Elsewhere had some fun!
Bloody Disgusting pointed us towards the website 9 the Creative Shop, who recently scanned and published an ad that appeared in their newspaper's obituaries section. The kicker? Since the dead were returning to life, the areas where the names of the recently deceased would appear were left blank. Pretty nifty! Take a look!
Ghost House Pictures produced the much anticipated remake of The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead »

Feige told Entertainment Weekly that the franchise's central character Tony Stark could continue to appear for decades to come.
However, Feige said that although talks are ongoing with Downey Jr, Iron Man could undergo a reboot were he not to return.
Feige explained: "I believe there will be a fourth Iron Man film and a fifth and a sixth and a 10th and a 20th.
Speaking about returning to the role, Downey Jr said »
During the world premiere for Iron Man 3, a smiling Joss Whedon confirmed the first draft for The Avengers 2 was completed. Amidst the shrieking fanboy frenzy, he also let slip that a brother-sister act would make their Marvel cinematic debut in the film. Whedon, whose Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. series for Marvel has been picked up by ABC, has since been interviewed by IGN. The interview has confirmed that the rumours are true, and the sibling double act are in his first script.
When asked about their presence in the script, Whedon said:
“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

Marvel fans have plenty to look forward to over the next couple of years, with Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy building to the release of The Avengers 2 in 2015. However, with Iron Man 3 getting Phase Two of the McU off to a billion dollar start, Marvel Studios is wasting little time in formulating its plans for a third cycle of movies. So far, all we know for certain is that Edgar Wright's long-awaited Ant-Man will kick-off things off in 2015, but speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel's President of Production and super producer extraordinaire Kevin Feige has offered a few new comments on several potential projects, including... deep breath... Doctor Strange, Iron Man 4, Inhumans, Runaways, Daredevil, The Punisher, Blade, Ghost Rider and even Marvel Zombies! Here's what he had to say...
On Doctor Strange: "I would love Strange to be »

Marvel's Phase Two is already underway with Iron Man 3 in theaters, and Thor: The Dark World coming this Thanksgiving. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is shooting right now, with Guardians of the Galaxy deep into pre-production and The Avengers 2 screenplay completed. So that means Marvel is of course thinking about their Phase Three plans with only Ant-Man confirmed at this point. What else might be included in this third leg of the Marvel movie legacy?
Kevin Feige recently caught up with Entertainment Weekly, and offered a list of potential titles, with the fact that Doctor Strange is likely to be confirmed next. While we've heard most of these titles batted about the Internet before, one title sticks out like a sore thumb, and that's Marvel Zombies. We haven't really heard this mentioned before in terms of being included as a Marvel Phase Three project.
Here are the possible »
Entertainment Weekly sat down with Kevin Feige and got an update on what was and wasn’t in the cards for Marvel’s Phase 3 and beyond.
Ant-Man: This one is happening. Apparently it’s director Edgar Wright who has been postponing the project up until now. Wright will begin working on it later this year after he’s finished with all things The World’s End.
Iron Man 4: Feige said, “I believe there will be a fourth Iron Man film and a fifth and a sixth and a 10th and a 20th. I see no reason why Tony Stark can’t be as evergreen as James Bond. Or Batman for that matter. Or Spider-Man. I think Iron Man is a character just like that. »
