The Little Hours Character Posters: "Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent.

Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry."
Written and directed by Jeff Baena, The Little Hours stars Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Kate Mucucci, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke, Nick Offerman, Adam Pally, Jon Gabrus, and Lauren Weedman.
Inconceivable Release Details: Press Release: "Los Angeles, June 22, 2017 -- As its June 30 theatrical and digital release approaches, actor/director/producer Jonathan Baker reflects on the theme of his film, which, safe to say, is an entertaining thriller with a cautionary message: if you’re thinking about IVF, surrogate motherhood or even just hiring a child minder, be careful. Rather like Jaws’ tagline, “You’ll never go in the water again,” after seeing Inconceivable, you just might want to think twice before leaving your child alone with a stranger, even as attractive and seductive one as Inconceivable star Nicky Whelan.
Baker cites nanny, surrogacy and IVF programs gone wrong when he talks about why he chose to do the film. “The movie is about a couple and their journey though In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), surrogate motherhood and a vindictive nanny. IVF is a topic that can be taboo, even in the USA. In addition to entertaining the audience, I wanted to shed light on this subject—which affects so many couples—in an open forum to help dispel the secrecy and even shame surrounding this topic. The film provides the space for a real problem to play out (in an admittedly extreme way) in a fictional world. There are many people who want children that need the help, and this film strings viewers along for their struggle, but in a very different, arguably darker, way.”
“While the film at first focuses on IVF, the focus naturally dips into surrogate motherhood as it becomes the route used to solve the couple [played by Nicolas Cage and Gina Gershon]’s infertility,” Baker continues. “But is the surrogate mother potentially signing her unborn child’s life away? For the average couple, surrogacy does not connect with losing a child; however this thriller is all about exploring that fear. Allowing a stranger into your world can be frightening in itself, but such vulnerability is amplified with surrogacy. The film proves that IVF and surrogacy can create a dangerous cocktail of tension, paranoia, and fear that can destroy a family.”
Deception doesn’t always come from where you expect it to; sometimes it comes from your most trusted nanny as seen with Inconceivable. When a stranger is in the home, it is natural to fear something might go wrong. Such incidents have been widely broadcast in cases such as with Gwen Stefani, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Balthazar Getty, among others. Isn’t it weird that we trust strangers with our most prized possessions: children? I wanted to combine these topics to bring these fears to the screen, because fear is what gets people talking. Through discussion, society can better address such topics.
Overall, my goal for this film was to make something that matters and really hits home with people. Infertility is a harsh reality for many prospective parents, and I wanted to help contribute to such an important dialogue as this. I want my movie to bring the topics out of hiding and into open discussion. That’s why ‘deception hits home’ is such a fraught tag line for the movie.”

“Who is the other Miles Morales?” It’s a question Marvel is set to answer this summer as Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli launch the five-issue series Spider-Men #11, and we’ve got a first look preview at the debut issue here…
“One of my favorite things about a shared universe, is that on top of what you’re writing for the characters, other things are happening to the characters, like now Miles is in the new universe, and now he’s a part of the Champions, and half of [Civil War II] was people fighting over his head, so things have changed in his life, and his relationship to the Marvel Universe is completely different than it was in the first series and that’s exciting,” said writer Brian Michael Bendis.

If you’ve been keeping up with the recent happenings at Marvel, then you’re well aware of Generations, an upcoming endeavor consisting of ten one-shots uniting heroes who have adopted various mantles, both past and present. In other words, expect to see team-ups featuring the likes of Wolverines Laura Kinney and Logan, and even Thors Odinson and Jane Foster.
What’s more is that we recently discovered this seemingly standalone tale will, in fact, have some sort of intertwining with Secret Empire, the House of Ideas’ currently in progress major crossover event. Sure, we probably won’t know all of the specifics until the actual periodicals ship, but it remains clear that something called “the Vanishing Point” is the reasoning for these otherwise anachronistic team-ups.

In just a few months, Tom Holland returns to the big screen as Spider-Man in his first stand alone adventure, Spider-Man: Homecoming, but next year, fans will also get a new Spider-Man animated movie, which will feature The Get Down and Dope star Shameik Moore lending his voice to the iconic Miles Morales. While we wait for additional voice cast members to come aboard, Sony Pictures unveiled the first two posters for this untitled animated adventure during the annual Licensing Expo, which is currently happening in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, these posters don't give us our first look at the animated Spidey, but it does feature the movie's new logo.
Collider spotted these photos on the convention floor earlier today, which showcases a graffiti-style logo that is being used for this animated Spider-Man movie. Unfortunately, the Licensing Expo didn't reveal any story details for this untitled animated adventure, but this project »
Awards shows are usually boring affairs. It doesn't matter who's putting them on, it is guaranteed to be a three to four hour snoozefest that only people in the industry will love. Like anything though, there may be moments during the show that may end up being noteworthy and worth discussion and the MTV Movie Awards have given us just that.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is expected in theaters this July and what better time to start getting the masses excited for the movie than during an award show? The scene in question is a simple one. Peter Parker as Spider-Man arrives home and is caught by his friend Ned Leeds. The scene speaks for itself but for my money, is a great harbinger of things to come from this movie.
Sony Pictures was in quite the pickle after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to wow audiences. The movie, despite the effort of everyone involved, »

Although Marvel’s upcoming Generations limited series had much mystery surrounding it for some time – and it still does, for the most part – more details are slowly but surely coming to light. What we do know is that different versions of your favorite heroes will be fighting side by side, namely duos such as Wolverines Logan and X-23, and Thors Odinson and Jane Foster. But what we don’t know is how these characters are able to join forces or what the overall threat will be.
And despite it being quite vague and spoiler free, perhaps you’ll appreciate this synopsis by way of Marvel themselves:

We’ve been so pre-occupied with Tom Holland’s portrayal of the Peter Parker Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that its easy to forget there’s a separate, animated Spider-Man film set to come out from Sony.
Rather than focusing on the original Spider-Man, the animated film will centre its follow the Miles Morales incarnation of the web-slinger, and now The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the first two additions to the cast: The Get Down‘s Shameik Moore will voice Miles Morales and Ray Donovan‘s Liev Schreiber will voice the villain, whose identity is being kept under wraps.
Miles Morales was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli for Marvel’s Ultimate Universe, which was separate to the main 616 Universe that the majority of the Marvel comics take place in.

Not long ago, Marvel dropped a simple, enigmatic teaser for something called Generations. At the time, no specifics were given, but it got everybody talking due to it depicting multiple versions of superheroes hanging out and also because it was painted by the incomparable Alex Ross. Who doesn’t love his work, am I right?
Anyway, the House of Ideas have finally pulled back the curtain on the project that will – get this – unite those who have taken up the guise of various heroes both past and present, just as the artwork hinted. I know, it all seems a bit confusing and will likely remain that way until this 10-issue series hits stands this July.
As of now, we know which heroes will join forces, along with the writers who will craft these stories. Artists have still yet to be named, but here’s the list made available:

Although we still have a couple more issues to go before Monsters Unleashed officially wraps, Marvel is doing their part to get the word out by circulating yet another promo video. Whereas the previous one reminded me more of 1950’s era footage, this one come across more like a modern news report.
Once again making use of motion comics, the latest offering does its best to make you feel like you’re living in the Marvel Universe and these kaiju-like creatures are tearing up your hometown. But luckily, you happen to exist within a universe that also has superheroes, so characters who are mentioned such as the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor and Captain Marvel are probably much appreciated.
Similarly, Marvel has entertained fans in recent memory with a variety of music videos, and it seems like they tried to continue that trend here by featuring the track “Back from »

Sony Pictures Animation, which has fallen on hard times in recent years, highlighted diversity and female empowerment as part of its comeback at Wednesday’s slate preview in Culver City. The biggest news was confirmation that Miles Morales, the mixed race web-slinging teen (African-American and Hispanic), will star in the untitled “Spider-Man” feature coming December 21, 2018.
Morales, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli to succeed the late Peter Parker in the comics, has already become a TV animation staple on Disney Xd’s “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” (initially voiced by Donald Glover).
The animated “Spider-Man” marks a return to Spa for Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), who directed “The Lego Movie” and are currently making the “Han Solo” standalone “Star Wars” feature.
In a pre-recorded video message from London, Lord said, “What inspired us the most is that anyone can wear the mask. »

Spider-Man remains a white guy named Peter Parker in Sony’s upcoming live-action movie, but that won’t be the case in the animated film due out in 2018. Miles Morales—the half-black, half-Latino hero introduced back in 2011—will be the star of the still-untitled project being executive produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Sony Animation announced yesterday.
The idea of getting a non-white Spidey on the big screen has been building momentum among fans for some time now. Miles was created for the Ultimate Marvel universe after writer Brian Michael Bendis was inspired by Donald Glover’s campaign to take on the role in The Amazing Spider-Man. In 2015, the character officially adopted the Spider-Man moniker. But even as the world of the comics diversified, the big-screen Spider-Man remained the same as always when Tom Holland joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the webslinger. Now Morales is ...

Miles Morales is the second Spider-Man of Marvel's Ultimate universe, who picked up the legacy from Peter Parker. Created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, he first came on the scene in 2011, and has recently been integrated into the Marvel Universe proper. While some of his powers are similar to the classic Spidey's, he's also got a powerful 'sting' and camoflauge abilities in his arsenal, »
Comic Book Reviews: Marvel Comic Book Round Up New Comic Series!
With 2016 starting off strong for Marvel, the company soon seemed to lose its way as it headed into the summer season with company wide crossover, Civil War II. Suddenly books which had previously been doing well, started to dip as they were roped into the major event that was not getting the best of reviews. Characters were suddenly being written completely different from how they were previously acting with little to no explanation; story content was dropped or pushed to the side to make way for the Civil War II connections. All of this, and DC had just launched its Rebirth line up. While DC was learning from their New 52 mistakes, and attempting to bring their characters back to a more recognizable state, Marvel was putting all their eggs into Brian Michael Bendis Civil War II basket. The result? »
