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.

FIFA 18 Review

20 September 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With every passing year, the release of FIFA feels more and more like an event. Soccer’s real-life stars line up to talk about their in-game rating, to inspect their Fut cards and to emphasize their love of the brand. All the time, the line is being blurred between the sport we enact on our screens, and the real sport itself.

In FIFA 18, that’s never more evident than in the return of The Journey, the story of eighteen-year-old sensation Alex Hunter, now in his second season of professional football. Over the course of six chapters, EA unrolls the red carpet for its famous supporting cast who are faithfully motion-captured for their starring bow. From Ronaldo to Muller to Griezmann and a certain Gunners legend, the A-listers join Alex on a globetrotting adventure that feels like a big high-five to soccer itself.

Power Pack Movie Is Back on at Marvel?

18 September 2017 5:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

12 years after Marvel used the rights to Power Pack as collateral in a deal that lead to the origins of Marvel Studios, the blockbuster studio is reportedly revisiting that property. A new report claims that, while we may be a ways off from a Power Pack movie actually happening, steps are being taken to put the movie into development, with longtime Marvel Studios executive Jonathan Schwartz being given executive oversight on the film. Jonathan Schwartz has been working for Marvel since 2009, where he first started as an assistant to Kevin Feige on Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, before being elevated to a producer on Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming Captain Marvel.

The news comes from That Hashtag Show, which reports that the studio is looking to make a "Spy Kids-like story" that follows the Power family The »

Captain Marvel enlists Oscar-nominated production designer

15 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck on board to direct, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet working on a new draft of the script, the crew for Captain Marvel continues to expand, with Marvel bringing on board Oscar-nominated production designer Andy Nicholson for Carol Danvers’ big screen debut.

Nicholson has previously worked with Marvel Studios on Captain America: The First Avenger, where he served as supervising art director, while his production design credits include The Host, Divergent, Assassin’s Creed and the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He also received an Academy Award nomination for his work on Gravity, which should certainly put him in good stead for Carol’s cosmic adventure.

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.

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. »

Exclusive Interview – Marvel Visual Development Supervisor Andy Park on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Marvel house style, and more

5 September 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alex Moreland chats with Andy Park about all things Marvel…

First of all, could you tell us a little bit about how you became involved with the Marvel movies, and what your responsibilities are as Visual Development Supervisor?

Yeah! I started at Marvel about seven, eight years ago – Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito decided it’d be worth it to have a group of in-house artists, because of all the connected films. So, back in 2010, Charlie Wen and Ryan Meinerding got permission to start this group; they called me, because I’d worked with them in video games for Sony back in the day, and they hired me. That’s when I started working at Marvel Studios, and I’ve been working there ever since.

I’ve worked on every single film since Captain America: The First Avenger; in the past few years, I’ve been promoted to Visual Development Supervisor, »

Winter Solider Gets a Chilly New Look in Abandoned Captain America Art

4 September 2017 2:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We first met the iconic character Bucky Barnes in the 2011 Marvel Phase One movie Captain America: The First Avenger. He changed quite a bit in the 2014 superhero film Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While he was thought to be dead, it was revealed that Bucky was resurrected decades ago as The Winter Soldier. New concept art has surfaced that shows how this character's look evolved quite a bit throughout the design process. The artwork was created in 2012, two years before Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit theaters.

The artwork surfaced on Reddit, which shows six different designs for Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan. What's interesting is that in all of the designs, the character had a metal bionic arm in place, although the specific design of the arm itself changed quite a bit through each of the drawings. The Winter Soldier is also seen with quite a large sniper »

Doctor Who’s Matt Smith interested in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe

3 September 2017 10:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While his days as the Eleventh Doctor on Doctor Who are long over, Matt Smith hasn’t taken his eyes off of joining yet another major franchise beloved by millions. The actor confirmed during a panel at Fan Expo Canada that he would be interested in taking on a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I’d love to. They’ve got ask me though, the swines,” Smith said jokingly, putting the ball in Marvel’s court. “But it would have to be the right project.”

Smith wouldn’t be the first Doctor Who alum to journey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe – not by a long shot. In fact, Smith’s two predecessors as the sonic screwdriver-wielding Time Lord, Christopher Eccleston and David Tenant, portrayed the main antagonists in Thor: The Dark World and Jessica Jones, respectively.

Additionally, Karen Gillan, who played Smith’s sidekick Amy Pond during her several years on Doctor Who, »

Amazing Jumanji Fan-Made Board Game Actually Works

29 August 2017 4:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Later this year, Jumanji is getting the long-awaited sequel it deserves in the form of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. If you've already watched the trailer too many times, you're probably looking for a way to pass the time until the movie arrives on December 20. Why not spend a few months making a completely screen-accurate version of the Jumanji board game? That's what one fan did, and it is totally awesome.

Steven Richter recently published a video to his YouTube channel detailing his journey to create this unbelievably detailed and entirely accurate Jumanji board game. The time-lapse video lasts just 15 minutes, but it reportedly took Richter seven months to complete the project. That may sound like a long time, but when you see just how much work and detail went into creating it, that timeframe isn't nearly that surprising. Here's some of what he had to say about making the Jumanji board game. »
