Spider-Man Spin-Off Silver and Black Gets a Director and Release Date

25 May 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony is doubling down on it's own version of the Marvel universe with the second installment to be titled Silver and Black, based on the Silver Sable and Black Cat comics. It will arrive after the first Smu movie Venom. Today, Sony has announced that they've secured a director for this female led superhero movie.

Gina Prince-Bythewood is officially on board to direct Silver and Black. She is best known for writing and directing The Secret Life of Bees. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce the movie. It will hit theaters in October 2018. Oddly enough, this is the same frame which Venom is scheduled to launch. Perhaps The Hollywood Reporter has the date wrong and they meant to say 2019?

Silver and Black is chugging along fast, and will begin shooting this fall. The movie has been in the planning stages for quite some time, going all the way back »

Uncharted Movie Gets Tom Holland as Young Nathan Drake

22 May 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In somewhat surprising news, it has been announced today that the upcoming Uncharted movie will be slightly rebooted when it hits the big screen. The main character Nathan Drake is getting 'de-aged' quite a bit from what fans of the longstanding video game know. And the character will be played by Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland.

Uncharted is coming from Sony Pictures, home of Spider-Man. And they have been so impressed with their new Peter Parker that they're giving Tom Holland two franchises instead of one. This will surely come as disappointing news to some, who have long envisioned Firefly star Nathan Fillion in the Nathan Drake role. The character was also supposed to be played by Mark Wahlberg at one point.

The Uncharted movie is being redrafted as a prequel to the game series. It will still revolve around the treasure hunting action hero at the heart of the »

The Wall-Crawler Catches His Breath On Spider-Man: Homecoming Standee; New Artwork Features The Shocker

22 May 2017 6:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Tom Holland’s Wall-Crawler swung into action in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, Marvel fans have been pining for his first full feature as Spider-Man. Now, we know what you’re thinking: another Spidey movie? But it’s only been three years since the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2!

And though that may be true, thanks to a licensing agreement between Marvel and Sony – a licensing agreement that many had considered to be wishful thinking hitherto – we’re now teetering on the verge of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jon Watts’ imminent reboot that takes one of the most iconic superheroes in the business and slaps on an exciting new lick of paint. Quite literally, as it were.

The end result is a summer blockbuster that’s already been championed as slam-dunk for Marvel – analysts predict a strong box office opening in the region of $150 million, which is just north of »

The Flash Movie Hasn't Lost Billy Crudup, But Sam Raimi Passes

17 May 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Flash movie just can't seem to catch a break. Warner Bros. has been on the hunt for a director ever since Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences. Prior to that, Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street) were attached to direct, but they left to go do the Han Solo movie. Now it looks like a couple of former Spider-Man movie directors have officially passed on the job, with Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3) and Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) both reportedly saying no.

The news comes courtesy of Entertainment Weekly who are reporting that both Raimi and Webb were in contention, but they both decided against taking on The Flash for Warner Bros. In the case of Marc Webb, after what happened with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it is understandable that he wouldn't want to jump right back into another seemingly rocky situation. »

The Wall-Crawler Saves The Day In New Round Of Images For Spider-Man: Homecoming

17 May 2017 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man leaps to the rescue in the latest round of stills for Marvel and Jon Watts’ long-anticipated summer tentpole, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Coming to us by way of Empire Magazine (with a tip of the hat to Cbm), these aren’t what you would call high-res screenshots, and are instead scans of Empire’s latest issue, which elected Spidey to be its new cover star earlier this week. If and when the outlet rolls out official, HD images, we’ll update this post, but you can still catch a new look at Tom Holland’s Wall-Crawler saving the day below – both on the streets of New York City and on the high seas, where Spidey is at full stretch to prevent a cruise liner from splitting in two in a scene that will surely evoke memories of the nail-biting train sequence from Spider-Man 2.

Speaking of which, Michael Keaton »

Kirsten Dunst wishes that Spider-Man 4 happened, not a fan of Amazing reboot

17 May 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spider-Man 2 is considered by many to be one of the best comic book movies ever made. This was an era before the words “extended universes” came into vogue, and no one had ever really seen anything quite like Sam Raimi’s original trilogy. Unfortunately, Spider-Man 3 really damaged the franchise as a whole, and despite initial rumblings of a Spider-Man 4 featuring The Vulture, the movie never happened and the franchise was rebooted with director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield.

We haven’t heard too much from the original cast regarding the Spider-Man films since as they have all gone off to have successful careers, and surely aren’t too keen on having long discussions about the Emo-Peter Parker dance scene in Spider-Man 3. However, Kirsten Dunst has recently given her thoughts on the cancelled Spider-Man 4, and the Amazing Spider-Man reboot.

“I wanted to be in [Spider-Man 4] so badly,” Dunst told Variety. »

Newswire: It’s Rumor Time: Will Robert Zemeckis or Sam Raimi direct The Flash?

16 May 2017 4:18 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ever since Dope director Rick Famuyiwa dropped out last year, Warner Bros. has been pretty cagey about who might end up directing Ezra Miller in its standalone Flash movie. Now, though, the studio has started floating some high-profile names to take over the film, with The Hollywood Reporter noting that Robert Zemeckis, Sam Raimi, and Matthew Vaughn have all taken meetings to potentially direct the speedster showcase.

Of the three, Vaughn seems like the easiest fit; he’s directed a number of superhero movies (Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class), and his Kingsman was a) a hit, and b) the sort of light action fare that might comfortably fit Barry Allen’s quick-moving antics. (Minus some of the head-popping gore, anyway.) Raimi’s a weirder choice; although his Spider-Man movies helped kick off the superhero movie boom, he hasn’t had a hit since 2004’s Spider-Man 2.

Kirsten Dunst: “Everyone Likes Our Spider-Man. C’mon, Am I Right Or What?”

16 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As Sony teams up with Marvel to reboot Spider-Man yet again with this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” some might already be weary of another webslinging franchise. After all, only three years have passed since “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” but on the flipside, Tom Holland seems to fit the role quite nicely, and this time around, Peter Parker gets to have out with the Avengers.

Spider-Man: Homecoming on Target for Huge $135M Box Office Opening

13 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Things are looking good for the first solo Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only in terms of the quality of the movie, but financially speaking as well. Some very early box office tracking numbers have been revealed and, if they are even close to correct, Spider-Man: Homecoming will be a major financial success.

According to Box Office Pro, Spider-Man: Homecoming is eyeing an opening of $135 million domestically. That would be a big improvement over Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which brought in $91 million on its opening weekend back in 2014. The movie ultimately went on to gross $708 million worldwide which, on paper seems quite good, but for a Spider-Man movie, wasn't all that great. The movie also wasn't received very well by fans or critics, which certainly had a big effect on the box office. That will likely be the case this time around as well. If the »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Could Open With $135 Million

12 May 2017 1:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out in the wild, and smashing through one box office record after another, it’s time to turn our attention to the next big Marvel release coming down the pipeline. That’d be Jon WattsSpider-Man: Homecoming, which marks the wall-crawler’s first solo outing in the McU and after his superb debut in Captain America: Civil War, expectations for the film are understandably high.

With just a few months to go now before Tom Holland’s take on the iconic hero swings into theatres (July 7th is the date you’ll want to mark down), the first wave of box office projections are starting to roll in, and they’re fairly strong. According to Box Office Pro, the reboot is looking at a $135 million opening weekend domestically, which would give it a total of about $325 million on this side of the pond. »

[Updated] Rumor: Deadpool 2 Casting Three More X-Force Members?!

11 May 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Update: In response to this rumor, one of the Deadpool 2's writers, Rhett Reese, took to Twitter to debunk this rumor. 

Check out the tweet below:

Again, wrong. https://t.co/vPsGH7EOzm

Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) May 10, 2017

Original Story:

It’s no real surprise that the Deadpool franchise is heading towards a bigger movie in X-Force. It’s already been confirmed that X-Force is in development, and we already know that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was set to develop the story, and that action director Joe Carnahan was set to direct it. In short, we knew things would build to that team being assembled. But all that being said, we didn’t realize it could come so soon.

Studios have made the mistake in the past of pushing for a team to assemble far too soon. We saw it in films like Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. »

How ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Avoided an R Rating, and Other Tales from Fmx

9 May 2017 2:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

(“Guardians 2” spoilers follow.)

So here’s a poser: In “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” we have Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his father, Ego (Kurt Russell), a living planet that takes on human form. Weta Digital was challenged with creating the interior look of Ego, along with the various transformations during his climactic fight with Quill.

This involved complicated mathematical patterns known as fractals (inspired by artist Hal Tenny, who served as a consultant). However, not only did Weta have difficulty controlling the fractals, but it also had to make them pliable in short order.

And then there was the biggest challenge: Weta was charged with ensuring that “Guardians” avoided an R-rating. That’s because 40% of Ego gets destroyed in the fight, and his internal organs can be seen dangling behind him. Weta offered to make him look more fractal, oozing black blood, but director James Gunn would have none of that. »

‘Spider-Man 3’: Sam Raimi’s Ambitious, Moving Trilogy Capper

4 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 seems to almost invite the incredulity it’s still met with. The emotions are bigger, the comedy broader, the plot more overstuffed. Structurally, against the preceding, comparatively tight films, it courts outright incoherence, »
