Spider-Man 3 (2007) - News Poster



Rumor: We May Not Actually See Much Of Venom In His Own Movie

Despite leaving myself open to verbal thrashings from friends and readers online alike, I’ve been honest in admitting that Venom is one of the comic book movies I’m looking forward to most in 2018. After missing the mark with the iconic character in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, surely Sony would have to do a better job with a solo outing, right?

Well, if recent chatter is to be believed, then those of you in the same boat as I have reason to go in with lowered expectations.

You see, former IGN editor Jeremy Conrad has broken down an alleged plot synopsis that’s surfaced online – one which he didn’t provide in full, mind you – but there were a variety of details to mull over, regardless. As such, we advise you to take the following with a grain of salt as you normally would in cases such as this, but we can’t help thinking,

Topher Grace to star in faith-based drama The Impossible

Deadline is reporting that Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3, War Machine) has been cast in The Impossible, an upcoming faith-based drama from Fox 2000, which is being directed by Roxann Dawson.

The film is based upon Joyce Smith’s book and will see Grace as Pastor Jason Noble, “the small town’s new hip man of God who helps the mother of a drowned son through this horrific time, galvanizing the town.”

Also featuring in the cast of the film are Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Marcel Ruiz and Isaac Kragten.

Fox 2000 scored a hit this past weekend with its faith-based feature I Can Only Imagine, which pulled in $17 million at the North American box office.

Grace has recently wrapped filming on Under the Silver Lake alongside Andrew Garfield, and also stars in Spike Lee’s Black Klansman, where he plays a white supremacist.

All The News From The Bruce Campbell Panel At Walker Stalker Con London

Bruce Campbell at Walker Stalker Con London

Horror icon Bruce Campbell took to the panel stage in London this past weekend to host a Q and A with attendees of the third annual Walker Stalker Con. This was an opportunity for fans of Bruce to ask all their burning questions, and they didn’t waste a single minute. During the hour-long panel he shared many a story, here of some of the highlights:

The future of Ash Vs Evil Dead looks uncertain…

The first question of the panel began with the words ‘In Ash Vs Evil Dead…’ at which point Bruce Campbell, perhaps jokingly, interjected with ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead, the television show that’s about to be cancelled’. This revelation was met with resounding boos to which Campbell retorted – ‘Don’t cry for me Argentina. If you don’t pay for Starz, they’re gonna cancel it.’ At several

Rumor: Villains And Production Timeline For Flashpoint Revealed

With Justice League failing to meet financial expectations at the box office, it’s forced many of us to ponder the future of the DC Extended Universe. And regardless of said gross, it’s the hope of many – this writer included – that we continue to see new territory being charted that, of course, includes heroes and villains who’ve not had much exposure on the big screen.

Taking those financial shortcomings into consideration, though, it’s definitely surprising to see that Warner Bros. are seemingly all for proceeding with a Flashpoint movie. I mean, the Scarlet Speedster is long overdue for some time in the spotlight on the silver screen, but anyone remotely familiar with Geoff Johns’ game-changing comic book of the same name is well aware of how it also includes alternate takes on Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and even Shazam. In other words, it’d essentially

Which Marvel Film Has Made the Most Money? Here's the Whole List

Marvel Comics is one of the biggest production companies in the film industry at the moment, and with its new release of Black Panther, it is only going to continue to make more money - and rightfully so. Black Panther is already making history at the Us box office, raking in $242 million domestically over the three-day weekend. That total puts it in second place for the highest four-day opening of all time, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took in $288 million. When you look at worldwide numbers, Black Panther is even more impressive. The movie has already earned $426.6 million across the globe! That gigantic number got us wondering just how much money all of the Marvel films have made over the years. There are so many films to choose from, and a lot of them have been popular, but when all is said and done, how much money have they actually earned?

In Defense Of: “Spider-Man 3” (2007)

One universal truth in the world of cinema is that sequels will always be a tough nut to crack. Though there have been a handful of follow-ups that have arguably surpassed their cinematic originals — Terminator 2, The Empire Strikes Back and Aliens spring to mind — Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 can also be added to the list as it too helped buck the ‘inferior sequel’ archetype by delivering a bonafide classic in the superhero sub-genre.

‘But we’re here to talk about Spider-Man 3!’ I hear you shouting. Well, here’s the thing: I can safely say that Raimi’s third, and final chapter, won’t be joining the pantheons of greatest sequels of all-time, unlike its immediate predecessor. That said, I do believe that Spider-Man 3 deserves some love, too.

On that note, come join us as we take a look back at Raimi’s oft-maligned third entry into Marvel’s beloved web-slinging series.

‘Black Panther’ Scorches Box Office Records, Sets the Bar for 2018 and Beyond

  • Indiewire
Marvel’s “Black Panther” (Disney) arrived with a record-breaking bang at the 2018 box office, outperforming pre-opening estimates for its three day U.S./Canada opening.

Check out its all-time records: “Black Panther” bests “Deadpool” by more than $50 million as the best February and pre-March opening weekends ever. It tops last year’s “Beauty and the Beast” as the best pre-May debut of all time. It nearly doubles “Furious 7” as the best opening for a black-directed film. It is triple the best previous record (held by “Straight Outta Compton”) for initial weekend of a film with a primarily black cast.

Those numbers will be re-counted when Sunday’s actual numbers are reported, plus the boost the movie will get from a four-day semi-holiday on Monday. And adjusting to an even playing field still leaves “Black Panther” remarkably (considering the month of release) among the ten best openers ever.

Kevin Smith’s Not A Fan Of The Venom Trailer Either

Sony’s upcoming Venom was an already contentious property due to its distance from the McU, but the controversy surrounding it only increased after the release of the first teaser trailer. Despite the title, the preview didn’t feature the actual character of Venom at all, only showing us Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock before his transformation into the black-clad anti-hero.

Naturally, fans heavily criticized this decision – and one of those is all-round superhero expert Kevin Smith. The director spoke with his co-host Ralph Garman on their podcast Hollywood Babble-On about recent trailers like Solo: A Star Wars Story and Avengers: Infinity War. Though they loved the footage from those films, the hosts were more conflicted about Venom, as Smith summed up most people’s thoughts with this comment on the trailer:

“I didn’t see a Venom trailer. I saw Tom Hardy: The Movie.”

Will Sam Raimi Return to Direct a Future Spider-Man Movie?

Will Sam Raimi Return to Direct a Future Spider-Man Movie?
Could Sam Raimi make a return to the Spider-Man franchise? Thomas Haden Church seems to think so. Church played Sandman in the notoriously disappointing Spider-Man 3, which ended Raimi's tenure with the Marvel superhero, even though he had plans to make Spider-Man 4, which didn't pan out. Instead, Sony opted to make The Amazing Spider-Man reboot, which didn't turn out so great, as we know. Though, it did lead to Spidey making his way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In any case, Church seems to think that Raimi could take another crack at the franchise in the future.

The actor is currently promoting the new season of Divorce on HBO. During a recent interview, the subject of Spider-Man 3 came up. Thomas Haden Church admits that he's proud of the movie, but that they were trying to cram way too much into it, which ultimately led to it being a problematic sequel.

Spider-Man 3 star Thomas Haden Church has praised Topher Grace’s Venom

Thomas Haden Church, one of the stars of Spider-Man 3, has defended Topher Grace’s portrayal of Venom.

Venom is making the headlines recently with Tom Hardy set to star as the fan-favourite villain, and a first teaser trailer recently arriving online.

Fans are hoping Hardy’s portrayal is more to their liking than that of Grace’s who once gave a much criticised performance as the character back in 2007.

Church, who played Sandman in the final film of the Spider-Man trilogy, is a fan of Grace’s performance, however, defending him in a recent interview with JoBlo:

“The studio felt like they had me, they had Franco’s story continuing, and they were like, we need one more that’s more of a millennial,” Church revealed. “And that’s how Venom and Topher Grace came into the picture. And by the way, I thought Topher was great in the

Spider-Man 3 Star Thinks Sam Raimi Would Direct Another Spidey Film

When Spider-Man 3 arrived in theatres in 2007, it ultimately became Sam Raimi’s swan-song in terms of his work in the realm of comic book movies. Having been the creative force that reinvigorated the genre in 2002 with Spider-Man – a breath of fresh air after Joel Schumacher’s attempts at Batman movies in the 1990s – Raimi built his web-slinger work into a solid trilogy, which appeared to culminate in a film packed with infamous Marvel villains. Now, one of those villains is reflecting on the reality of the end of Raimi’s Spider-Man films and teasing his own return to the genre.

Many fans of Spider-Man 3 feel that Thomas Haden Church’s portrayal of Sandman was a highlight of an otherwise bloated movie, and in a new interview with JoBlo – actually about his television series, Divorce – the actor explained his take on the way studio interference from Sony on Spider-Man 3

Sandman Actor Defends Topher Grace’s Performance As Venom In Spider-Man 3

Before Tom Hardy began wrestling with his demons – both literal and figurative – Sony Pictures and Sam Raimi chose to place Topher Grace on a collision course with the symbiote known as Venom.

He’s arguably the most interesting antagonist of Spider-Man 3, even if Raimi initially planned to introduce Adrian Toomes (Aka the Vulture) alongside the Green Goblin (James Franco) and Sandman, the supercharged bank robber brought to life by Thomas Haden Church.

Indeed, thanks to a new interview with JoBlo, Church has been fielding all sorts of questions and queries relating to Spider-Man 3, including its bloated villain roster and Topher Grace’s performance as the alien symbiote.

The studio felt like they had me, they had Franco’s story continuing, and they were like, we need one more that’s more of a millennial. And that’s how Venom and Topher Grace came into the picture. And by the way,
