Dazzling First Trailer For Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Introduces Miles Morales

With all the talk of Sony’s live-action Spider-Man spinoff franchise, let’s not forget that the studio has an animated feature coming out in the near future, too. Titled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, it will act as the cinematic debut of Miles Morales, Peter’s successor as Spider-Man in the comics, as played by Dope actor Shameik Moore. Joining him will be Liev Schreiber and Mahershala Ali and earlier today, Sony finally lifted the lid on the project, giving us the first trailer for the film.

Seen above (with the international version below), this is a wild and unexpected first look at Into the Spider-Verse. For one, the visuals are absolutely gorgeous, with a cel animation style that works perfectly. Again, it’s not at all what we were expecting, but we definitely dig it. There’s also the interesting tease that there are multiple versions of Spider-Man in this universe which,

Michael Bay to produce a live-action Dora the Explorer movie

Having called time on the Transformers franchise after this year’s Transformers: The Last Knight, it seems that Michael Bay is turning his attention to another children’s cartoon series, with THR reporting that Bay has signed on to produce a live-action Dora the Explorer movie.

According to the site, Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce the movie for Paramount, with Nicholas Stoller (The Muppets, Neighbors) coming on board to work on the script. Paramount had previously set Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) to pen an adaptation back in 2015, although that project failed to come together.

Unlike the TV series, where she is portrayed as a 7-year-old, the live-action movie will reportedly focus on Dora as a teenager who movies to the city to live with her cousin Diego. A 2019 release date is being eyed.

Dora the Explorer ran for 172 episodes between 2000 and 2014 on Nickelodeon,

Dora the Explorer Live-Action Movie Is Happening with Producer Michael Bay
After languishing in development for the past two years, Paramount is finally moving forward with its Dora the Explorer adaptation, bringing on writer Nick Stoller to write the script. This Dora the Explorer live-action movie was first put into development exactly two years ago, when the studio brought on Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) to write the screenplay. There has been no movement on the project since then, but now it seems that the studio is moving forward with a new writer working on the script, and the studio eyeing a 2019 release date, with Michael Bay producing alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

The project will be developed under the new Paramount Players division of the studio, which is devoted to producing films based on properties that fall under the banner of Paramount's parent corporation, Viacom, which include Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and Bet. Brian Robbins,

Antonio Banderas to Star as Pablo Picasso in ‘Genius’ Season 2 at Nat Geo
Antonio Banderas has signed on to star as Pablo Picasso in National Geographic’s “Genius” Season 2, Variety has learned.

The artistic career of Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano María Remedios de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso spanned more than 80 years. His work challenged and reinvented the world’s perceptions of art and creativity. The prolific artist generated an estimated 50,000 works, among the most notable being “The Old Guitarist” from his Blue Period, now on display at the Art Institute of Chicago; “Guernica,” inspired by the Nazi bombing of a small Spanish town of the same name, recently displayed at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid; and “Les Demoiselles D’Avignon,” now on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

In addition, the artist’s personal life was equally intriguing. He lived most of his life in Paris during the first half of the 20th century and crossed paths

Despicable Me becomes highest-grossing animated franchise of all time

With its fourth entry – Despicable Me 3 – edging towards $950 million at the box office, making it the biggest film of the summer, Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise has now topped Shrek to become the highest-grossing animated franchise of all time.

The series, which launched in 2010, has grossed a combined $3.622 billion around the globe, with its last three instalments all surpassing $900 million. Leading the way is the spinoff Minions, which earned $1.159 billion back in 2015. For comparison, the five Shrek movies earned $3.511 billion between 2001 and 2011.

Both series do have further instalments planned, with Minions 2 slated for release in 2020 and Shrek 5 planned for either 2019 or 2020. Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves was also originally due to hit cinemas in 2018, but has been removed from DreamWorks’ release schedule and is yet to receive a new date.

From Almodóvar’s parade to the Security of Hollywood: Antonio Banderas’ cinematic journey

Author: Jon Lyus

Antonio Banderas is one of the more recognisable faces (and certainly one of the most recognisable voices) in Hollywood. His presence in front of the camera is tangible, and the variety of roles he enjoys now is testament to a versatility few could have expected of the man who came to Tinsel Town barely speaking a word of English.

He has been a masked legend (twice, one furry – the other not so), played with another kind of mask (horrifcally so – see the final note), appeared opposite the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Spongebob Squarepants. He’s done it all, and now a new film of his arrives on DVD this week.

Security sees the actor as an ex-Special Forces vet taking a job as a security guard. On his first night he rescues a young girl fleeing from a hijacked convey,

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in July 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in July 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each
1. “Friends From College” Season 1 (available July 14)

Why Should I Watch It? Ivy League graduates are largely insufferable, but Netflix is challenging that notion by assembling the most likable cast in recent memory to play a bunch of Harvard alumni reuniting in their late 30s. (Ok, so this list pretty much proves that all famous Ivy Leaguers are awesome, but you know the non-famous are impossible bores. No? Just me? Damn it.) Anyway, “Friends From College” brings together Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max), and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) — plus Kate McKinnon and Ike Barinholtz as guest stars — in a comedic exploration of old friendships from the creative minds of Nicholas Stoller (“Neighbors: Sorority Rising,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and Francesca Delbanco. Sounds like an ideal mixer, no? Good — at least we can agree on something.

Netflix Introduces Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Programming for Kids

Have you ever thought a movie or TV series went down the wrong path, storywise? Well, now you can choose the direction of your entertainment with a new kind of programming from Netflix. Currently streaming on the service is a Shrek/Puss in Boots spin-off from DreamWorks titled Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale that gives you options as to which way its plot will continue. That's right, just like those old Choose Your Own Adventure books. The framing of the animated short is actually like one of those books, which Puss has magically fallen inside. Every couple of minutes an omniscient narrator gives Puss a new set of possibilities. For instance, he can fight a god or a tree. The choices are also for the viewer to pick from, using a smart TV, game...

Netflix Releases Its First Choose Your Own Adventure: Puss In Boots!

A few months back, we reported on Netflix experimenting with the idea of creating “choose your own adventure” series. This is definitely a cool idea, and a way that Netflix is continue to innovate beyond what standard networks have to offer. Up until this point, the closest thing we’ve had has been in the form of YouTube videos that lead to other YouTube videos using annotations. Another close parallel can be the Telltale Games like The Walking Dead or The Wolf Among Us.

At the time, it was rumored that the streaming service was experimenting, and to be honest, I didn’t think we’d see anything for at least another year. it turns out they were a bit farther along than I first realized, and today they released their first “choose your own adventure” for kids. The title in question comes from the Dreamworks property, Puss in Boots, and, it’s called Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale.

From the sound of the title, you can assume that this is a story aimed towards kids. and you wouldn’t be wrong. But that doesn’t keep it from being a bit of a novel idea for a network. The story starts out with Puss in Boots fighting off a trio of foes, and after beating them, he finds a storybook about him. He opens it up, only to get sucked in. The narrator proceeds to boss him around, and it’s up to the viewers to choose his path.

As with the “choose your own adventure” novels, you have an equal chance of choosing the wrong path, and this prompts a do-over from the narrator, who sends you back to the option where things went wrong. For those wondering how it works in terms of the timeline on your device, here’s a snapshot below of how the options pop up on an iPhone when you tap the screen.

As you can see, instead of a standard timeline (which gives us an idea of how much longer there is of the program), we have the sets of options given. Here's how the options break down according to Netflix for Puss in Boots as well as the upcoming Buddy Thunderstruck (the latter of which is set to hit next month). Click either to enlarge.

As of right now, this is only available for certain devices, like smart TVs, iPhones, or Roku — there is currently no way to select the options on your browser, Apple TV, Android, or Chromecast. We’re sure those will be coming soon.

The end product here is quaint enough. Nothing to write home about, but still pretty fun, and an extra way for kids to interact, as they’re already so inundated with more interactive media.

“Kids are already talking to the screen,” Carla Engelbrecht Fisher, Netflix’s director of product innovation, told The Verge. “They’re touching every screen. They think everything is interactive.”

This is a good start. Now, all we can do is wait for the more adult-centric horror themed ones to hit.

Spider-Man Animated Movie Poster Leaves Its Mark

Spider-Man Animated Movie Poster Leaves Its Mark
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.

Just because they’ve lent Peter Parker to Marvel Studios doesn’t mean that Sony aren’t interested in moving forward with their own Spider-Man-related projects. On top of the recent news that Tom Hardy would be playing Eddie Brock Aka Venom in a live-action movie, here’s a reminder that another wallcrawler will soon be making his way to the big screen.

Spider-Man Animated Movie Has Found Its Miles Morales

Spider-Man Animated Movie Has Found Its Miles Morales
Just months after Sony Pictures confirmed that their animated Spider-Man movie will follow Miles Morales, the studio has finally found their lead voice actor. Shameik Moore (Dope) has signed on to voice this beloved character in the animated movie, with Liev Schreiber also coming aboard to voice an unspecified villain. Now that the studio is in casting mode, it remains to be seen how quickly the other roles will be filled out.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, which comes just over a month after we reported that Ice Cube was being considered to voice Miles Morales' father, although his casting has yet to be confirmed. Ice Cube has previously worked with writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller before, playing Captain Dickson in 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally slated to direct this animated movie, but they are now only serving as writers and producers,

How ‘The Boss Baby’ Became Top Dog at the Box Office

Release dates are sometimes more interesting than their movies.

The simple answer for how a movie like The Boss Baby opens at number one is that it’s a major studio animated feature debuting in late March. Specific to this movie, however, there are certain special circumstances, like Beauty and the Beast finally dropping enough to give something else a shot and Ghost in the Shell being a flop, possibly due to its whitewashing casting controversy and possibly just due to its just not being very good.

March is a tricky month for movie releases. With Easter having an unfixed date falling either in March or April, there’s sometimes a holiday weekend, albeit not one typically known for moviegoing. Also, much of America’s children have a spring break, yet there’s no uniformity from county to county within any given state let alone across the country (many states and school districts also wait until April
