Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel assembles its crew, will reportedly shoot in Europe

With the as-yet-untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming follow-up now in pre-production ahead of a planned June shoot, it looks like Sony, Marvel and director Jon Watts are filling out the crew for the Phase Four-launching sequel.

According to McU Exchange, Matthew Lloyd has signed on to serve as director of photography, having previously worked with director Watts on Cop Car. He also has experience within the McU, having worked on the Netflix shows Daredevil and The Defenders, as well as reshoots on Thor: Ragnarok.

Furthermore, it has also been reported that Claude Pare (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, X-Men: Dark Phoenix) will serve as production designer, while Anna B. Sherppard (Captain America: The First Avenger, Maleficent) has been hired as the film’s costume designer.

Although plot details for Homecoming 2 are being kept under wraps, we also have another report suggesting that in addition to Atlanta and Berlin, the shoot

John Krasinski, Emily Blunt And Ansel Elgort Are The McU’s Fantastic Four On New Fan Art

It’s now 100% official – Disney has swallowed up 21st Century Fox, meaning the X-Men and Fantastic Four are within grasp of Marvel Studios. After Spider-Man came home not too long ago, these properties were virtually the only ones outside of the company’s reach. Now, the Marvel comics universe is extremely close to being whole on screen, and we couldn’t be more excited.

After all, when it comes to the Four, at least, Fox has never been able to figure things out. The 2005 movie and its sequel aimed to replicate the bright, all-ages tone of the comics and ended up skirting Batman & Robin levels of camp and cheese. Then, the 2015 reboot ended up being even worse by trying to “Nolanize” the characters but failing miserably. What Fox should have done is pitch the Four the same way that Marvel does all their properties: fun, accessible to everyone but grounded in character.

Fantastic Four Fan Art Renders John Krasinski As The New Reed Richards

Both Ioan Gruffudd and Miles Teller have tried (and arguably failed) to embody the whip-smart Reed Richards over the years, but a new dawn is coming.

Thanks to Disney’s monumental acquisition of 20th Century Fox and its entertainment assets, one that will have far-reaching implications for the entertainment industry at large, Kevin Feige and Co. now have the chance to reboot the Fantastic Four and incorporate Marvel’s First Family into the McU. And how exciting is that?

Granted, after three forgettable superhero movies in only 10 years, there are signs of franchise fatigue beginning to seep into the Fantastic Four brand, so Marvel Studios will need to capture lightning in a bottle twice (read: Spider-Man: Homecoming) if it’s to make the First Family relevant once more.

And in the eyes of one talented Redditor, John Krasinski is the perfect actor to headline a new rendition of the Fantastic Four,

Phil’s Top 10 [Cinema] Films of 2017

2017 has been, at least for me, a fantastic year for movies. There has been some great films in the cinema, on DVD and VOD and the film festivals we’ve covered have been jam-packed with quality movies. Which makes it Very hard to narrow down a list of the Top 10 of the year!

So, with that being said, I’ve decided that this year I’d split my picks into two distinct lists – the ten best films I saw in cinemas, be it at the local multiplex or at film festivals; and the ten best direct-to-market titles of the year, be they DVD or VOD.

Up first, my Top 10 picks of the cinematic releases of 2017 – in the order I saw them… And yes, even under this criteria, it’s still hard to pin down Just a Top 10!

Bucky’s Getting A Big Upgrade In Avengers: Infinity War

From Captain America’s rumored transition (Nomad, perhaps?) to Hawkeye’s newfound identity, the story rumors for Infinity War and Avengers 4 have been coming in thick and fast.

That largely comes down to the fact that Joe and Anthony Russo chose to shoot both ensemble movies back-to-back, resulting in a bottleneck of photos and leaked set pics. And though we still don’t know very much about either of the aforementioned films, it’s fair to say that both McU tentpoles are among the most-anticipated movies on the Hollywood calendar.

One of the many, many reasons that we have to look forward to what the Russos are cooking up is the fact that several of the Avengers will be receiving some nifty upgrades. And they’ll need them, too, given that Thanos is set to be their greatest threat yet. From Spidey’s Iron Spider suit to Thor’s new battle axe,

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will set up the plot of the next Jurassic World movie

It looks like we won’t have to wait very long for plot clues to the inevitable third installment in the Jurassic World franchise. In an interview with YouTuber Sebas Tabany, Colin Trevorrow — director of Jurassic World and writer/producer of the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom — stresses the importance of having a plan, and giving fans a glimpse at what’s next for the franchise:

“I knew where I wanted it to go. I remember telling Steven Spielberg even while we were making the first movie, ‘This is the beginning. Here is the middle. And here’s the end of the end. And this is where we want to go.’ I feel like that kind of design is crucial to a franchise like this if you really want to bring people along with you and make sure they stay interested. It needs to be thought through on that level.

Epic Avengers: Infinity War Featurette Chronicles The Road So Far

Beginning with Captain America: The First Avenger (chronologically speaking, of course) and reaching its so-called finale at Avengers 4, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the undisputed poster child for competent, interconnected film franchises.

Universal’s Dark Universe and the DC Extended Universe may have faltered in recent instalments (see: The Mummy, Justice League), but the McU continues to go from strength to strength – just take a look at Thor: Ragnarok and its $843 million haul.

And once Black Panther stakes a claim for box office glory in February, Marvel Studios will begin drumming up hype for Avengers: Infinity War – the event movie to end all event movies. Pegged to arrive on May 4th, 2018, the Powers That Be have been remarkably tight-lipped when it comes to Joe and Anthony Russo’s ensemble piece, which isn’t all that surprising given everything at stake.

Disney's Nutcracker Movie Brings in Captain America Director for Reshoots

Disney's Nutcracker Movie Brings in Captain America Director for Reshoots
Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is undergoing some significant reshoots, with director Joe Johnston being brought on to take the helm of these additional scenes. While, lately, a move like this is often a sign that the original director was fired, that isn't the case here, with this new report claiming original director Lasse Hallstrom simply cannot direct the reshoots due to scheduling conflicts. Lasse Hallstrom is not being "sidelined" by this move, and he will still be involved in the post-production process.

Fans who attended Disney's D23 Expo this summer got the first glimpse at The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, with Disney showcasing the first Nutcracker and the Four Realms footage while announcing a November 2, 2018 release date. The D23 Expo presentation featured Los Angeles-based dancer Lil Buck, who hit the stage to demonstrate the kind of street dancing called jookin that informed the way his character moves in the film.

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer

The Flickering Myth writing team reacts to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer…

After successfully relaunching the Jurassic Park franchise in 2016 with Jurassic World, Universal Pictures is set to take us back to Isla Nublar next summer with the J.A. Bayona-directed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and yesterday saw the release of the very first trailer for the dino-blockbuster. Read on to find out what our writing team made of this first-look…

Tom Beasley: I struggled a little with this trailer, despite my love for all of the actors involved and for J.A. Bayona as a director. It certainly delivers in terms of visual spectacle, but the plot seems a little lazy and I’m not sure there’s enough there to mark this movie out as different to what has come before. But, on the other hand, we’re getting new dinosaur fights and I’m not one
