Venom Targets Veep Star Reid Scott in Mystery Role

16 October 2017 2:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures' highly-anticipated Venom movie has a cast that keeps growing and growing, with Veep star Reid Scott entering negotiations for an unspecified role. It's possible that his character may have roots in the Marvel Comics, or that he could also be a brand new character created for this spin-off, but those details have not yet been made available. We reported last month that Venom production was delayed, with filming reportedly beginning on October 23 in both Atlanta and New York City. With the cast coming together the way it is, it's possible that filming may begin very soon.

Regardless of who he's playing, Reid Scott joins a cast that includes Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a.k.a. Venom, Riz Ahmed, rumored to be playing the primary villain Carnage, Michelle Williams, rumored to be playing Ann Weying, a.k.a. She-Venom, a lawyer and ex-wife to Eddie Brock. We »

16 October 2017 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Reid Scott is in talks to join the cast of Sony’s “Spider-Man” spinoff “Venom” starring Tom Hardy.

Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate are also on board, with Ruben Fleischer directing. Sony had no comment on the casting.

Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”), Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”), and Kelly Marcel will write the script for “Venom.” Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.

The studio has made it clear that Spider-Man will not be in these standalone films, but has left the door open for Venom to possibly appear in other “Spider-Man”-related movies. “Venom” hits theaters on Oct. 5, 2018.

Since its inception in 1988, the alien symbiote Venom has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters, making the film a top priority for Sony. The villain made his first big-screen appearance in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where »

Venom Eyes Jenny Slate for Spider-Man Spin-Off

4 October 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures' highly-anticipated Venom keeps adding to its growing cast, with comedic actress Jenny Slate entering negotiations for a supporting role. While the character's identity has been kept under wraps, sources claim the actress will play a scientist in the film, but there is no indication just yet if this character is based at all on another character that has roots in the Marvel Comics. It's also unclear at this point how many more characters need to be added, but the cast is growing so fast that all of the roles may be filled soon.

Despite all of the recent casting updates, the Venom production keeps getting delayed, with a report from last month revealing that filming is now scheduled to begin on October 23. Production had initially been scheduled to begin in Atlanta on September 1, but the Spider-Man spin-off has reportedly had trouble finding key crew members, since two massive »

Jenny Slate in talks to join Tom Hardy in Venom

3 October 2017 5:02 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

As Venom is one of the most popular characters to pop out of Spider-Man's universe, it's a little surprising that we've had to wait so long for the character to be properly introduced on the big-screen (and no, I'm not counting Topher Grace's Venom in Spider-man 3), but we're now a mere year away from seeing Sony's Venom unleashed. The cast is beginning... Read More »

Venom Gets Michelle Williams, Is She Bride of Venom?

27 September 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony's upcoming Venom movie just got another huge star. Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea, Drive) is in talks to join the cast, starring alongside Tom Hardy as the female lead. That positions the first movie in Sony's planned Spider-Man Cinematic Universe with two incredibly strong performers in the lead roles. Dare we say, this movie could actually be pretty great.

Variety brings us the news that Michelle Williams is currently in talks to join the Venom movie, but they weren't able to say specifically who she's playing. However, their report does note that she will play a district attorney and that she will possibly be playing Tom Hardy's love interest. Hardy is playing Eddie Brock, aka Venom, with Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Night of) also on board, but his role has yet to be specified. Venom is set to be directed »

Michelle Williams to Co-Star in New Venom Movie?

27 September 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Tom Hardy could have some new company in the upcoming Venom movie, as it's being reported that Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea, Shutter Island) is "in talks" to star in the film about one of Spider-Man's most popular villains (or antihero, depending on how you view the character).

Word of Williams' potential casting comes from Variety, who report that Sony currently has not confirmed the news.

If Williams does sign on to co-star in the film, she would join Hardy, who will play Eddie Brock, a man who becomes linked with an alien Symbiote that turns him into Venom, one of the ultimate villains in the Spider-Man universe. Although Venom and the Symbiote have a big influence on Spider-Man in the Marvel comic books, this film would take place outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which includes the most recent appearance by the web-slinger in this year's Spider-Man: Homecoming. »

There's a Big Chance Michelle Williams Is Joining Venom, the Spider-Man Spinoff

27 September 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If just hearing the name "Venom" gives you Ptsd from watching Tobey Maguire do that (incredibly cringey) dance in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, never fear: the supervillain is getting a facelift. A film centered around Venom is in the works at Sony, and Tom Hardy is taking on the role of Eddie Brock, a human who gets infected by the evil alien symbiote. Not too much is known about Venom at the moment, but we've rounded up all the details that have trickled out about it so far (including an exciting new addition to the cast!). »

Spider-Man Beats Guardians Vol. 2 as Biggest Superhero Movie of 2017

25 September 2017 10:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Move over, Wonder Woman, there's a new champion in town. It's been a big year for superhero movies and the Marvel and DC offerings have been among the highest-grossing movies of 2017. But now Spider-Man: Homecoming has come out totally on top and is the highest-grossing superhero movie of the year, besting Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Spider-Man is back in a big way.

According to Box Office Mojo, Spider-Man: Homecoming has now grossed $874.4 million worldwide. The movie got a recent boost as it finally opened in China and has done very well there. That extra money has helped make it the biggest comic book movie of the year over Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863.4 million), Wonder Woman ($819.6 million) and Logan ($616.8 million). Domestically, Wonder Woman still has Spidey beat, with $411.7 million. Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently at $331.9 million.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is now the fourth highest-grossing movie of 2017 overall, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming becomes the highest-grossing superhero movie of the year

24 September 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month, Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming became the highest-grossing reboot of all time, thanks in no small part to its solid opening in China, and now the film has overtaken Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy to become the biggest superhero movie of the year so far.

By close of play this weekend, Homecoming has grossed $874.4 million, compared to $863.4 million for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, $819.6 million for Wonder Woman, and $616.8 million for Logan. It is also the fourth-biggest release of the year behind Beauty and the Beast ($1.263 billion), The Fate of the Furious ($1.239 billion) and Despicable Me 3 (1.019 billion).

In terms of the Spider-Man franchise, Homecoming still trails the franchise leader Spider-Man 3, which grossed $890.9 million back in 2017.

Second Biggest Spider-Man Movie Is Now Homecoming

10 September 2017 3:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Spider-Man: Homecoming's theatrical run is winding down, over the weekend, it passed another important box office milestone. With this weekend's box office figures, the Spider-Man: Homecoming box office total has reached $823 million worldwide, which is enough to pass the original 2002 Spider-Man as the second biggest Spider-Man movie of all time. With its run winding down, it seems unlikely that it it will be able to surpass the $890.9 million worldwide total of Spider-Man 3, but it's still an impressive showing nonetheless.

Box Office Mojo reports that, while Spider-Man: Homecoming, which takes the franchise back to high school with Tom Holland starring as Peter Parker, still has some work to do if it wants to rise through the franchise's ranks at the domestic box office. As of now, it has earned $327.5 million domestically, which is more than enough to out-gross the most recent remakes, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, »

Spurred on by an impressive $70.8 million opening weekend in China – the third-biggest for a superhero movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming has pushed its global haul to $822.8 million today, surpassing fellow superhero blockbuster Wonder Woman, which has earned $816.3 million to date.

Homecoming has now passed the $821 million grossed by Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man back in 2002, making it the wall-crawler’s second-highest grossing solo movie behind Spider-Man 3 on $890.9 million – a figure that it may well reach depending on its legs in China. It is also the sixth-biggest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe behind this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

'It' Devours Competition with Record-Breaking $117 Million Opening

10 September 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

With a monster, $117 million opening weekend Warner Bros. and New Line's It has delivered a record-breaking opening, breathing a little life back into the slumping domestic box office. The film has claimed the largest September opening, largest fall opening, the largest opening for an R-rated horror film, not to mention the largest opening weekend for a horror film of any MPAA rating, and tops Open Road's new release Home Again in second place by nearly $110 million. Overall, the film accounted for more than 75% of the combined gross for the weekend's top twelve, and we've only just begun. With an estimated $117 million, WB and New Line's It, an adaptation of the acclaimed Stephen King novel, claimed the weekend's #1 spot with ease, besting Open Road's new release of Home Again in second place by nearly $110 million, the fifth largest gap between first and second place all-time.

Spider-Man: Homecoming becomes highest-grossing reboot of all time

8 September 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming finally made its way to the Middle Kingdom this weekend, with the Sony and Marvel produced reboot enjoying a solid $22.2 million opening day, with a further $1.5 million in Friday previews. The wall-crawler’s solo McU debut has now amassed a worldwide haul of $770 million, making it the highest-grossing reboot of all time – a record previously held by 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man on $757 million.

According to projections from Forbes, Homecoming will likely pass $800 million globally this weekend thanks to its debut in China, and could potentially reach as high as $880 million – which would put it ahead of Wonder Woman ($814 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863 million) to make it the biggest superhero movie of the year so far. However, to become the highest-grossing entry in the Spider-Man franchise it would need to shift a few more tickets however, with 2007’s Spider-Man 3 sitting on $891 million. »

Silver & Black May Include The Wild Pack

6 September 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that Sony has decided to confound us all by building a cinematic universe of their own comprised of Spider-Man’s supporting characters that doesn’t seem to actually be inhabited by the icon himself, it’s very hard not to look forward to a movie starring Black Cat and Silver Sable, even if it could use a better title than Silver & Black. Well, the film is bound to have more than a few detractors, regardless, but you can’t help being the slightest bit curious.

Still, the studio continues to give us cause for concern by seemingly shoehorning as many characters as possible into the movie. Now, a few of them make some sense as it allows for some cross-pollination with Venom, but in order for this thing to truly thrive, it’s best it not become too bloated. Well, that is unless the filmmakers know how »

Coming Distractions: Willem Dafoe plays a good guy for once in The Florida Project trailer

14 August 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

From Streets Of Fire to Spider-Man 3 (give or take a Bobby Peru), Willem Dafoe has played villains, creeps, and all manner of guys you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley—or motel parking lot, for that matter. But for The Florida Project, the new film from Tangerine’s Sean Baker, Dafoe is taking a novel approach: being the good guy. In the film, Dafoe plays Bobby, the fatherly manager of a brightly-painted, worn-down Orlando motel called The Magic Castle that’s home to a disenfranchised group of permanent residents as well as a rotating cast of budget-conscious tourists. Newcomer Brooklynn Prince stars in this slice of a rarely explored side of American life as young resident Moonee, with Bria Vinaite as her single mom Halley.

The Florida Project was a favorite of The A.V. Club’s A.A. Dowd at Cannes, where he gave it »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Swings Past $300M at the U.S. Box Office

11 August 2017 1:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official: Tom Holland's version of Spider-Man is a domestic hit. Marvel Studios and Sony made a landmark deal a couple of years ago to allow for the webslinger to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, so far, the results have been good. Following his debut in Captain America: Civil War last year, Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first solo Spidey movie in the McU, was released this summer and has officially crossed the $300 million mark at the domestic box office.

The $300 million figure puts Spider-Man: Homecoming well above the domestic totals of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man ($262 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($202.8 million). That is good news, but when looking at the numbers on Box Office Mojo, it is clear that Spider-Man: Homecoming still has some work to do in order to become the global hit that Sony and Marvel were hoping for. As it stands, this is the »
