Poll: What Do You Think About Tom Holland Playing Marvel's Spider-man?

24 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Now that Marvel Studios and Sony have cast Peter Parker/Spider-Man (sorry, Miles Morales fans), it's hard to think what the next big anticipated comic book movie casting is. Green Lantern? Captain Marvel? Darkseid? Shazam? Wong?! Regardless, this new Spidey is a pretty big deal, especially as he's set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next year's Captain America: Civil War. Did you ever expect to see the wall-crawler standing alongside The Avengers on the big screen? It's going to happen, and it will be followed by a trilogy of Spider-Man movies focusing on the character's teenage years in high school. In their quest to find the new Peter Parker, Marvel looked at more than 1500 actors, but it was ultimately Tom Holland who they decided is the right choice. The 19 year old apparently impressed Kevin Feige when he screen tested opposite both Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and »

Spider-Man Reboot Announces Actor and Director

24 June 2015 5:39 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After a long casting process, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that Tom Holland (The Impossible) as been hired to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next "Spider-Man" film, which is set to hit theaters on July 28th, 2017. It was also revealed that the reboot will be directed by Jon Watts, the man behind Kevin Bacon's upcoming "Cop Car" film. "Sony, Marvel, Kevin [Feige] and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world," said producer and former Sony Pictures head Amy Pascal. "With Tom, we've found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man's story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe." It's being reported that Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans were brought in to read scenes with Holland. This was obviously done to see if the young actor had any chemistry with "The Avengers" stars. »

How Robert Downey Jr. Helped Pick The New Spider-Man

23 June 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The previous big screen incarnations of Spider-Man that we've seen featured him as the only superhero in his world - but that won't be the case when the character officially joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only will the webslinger be throwing down with supervillains, but he will now also have the opportunity to pal around and trade stories with the likes of The Avengers and others. Because of this, it makes a good deal of sense that actor Tom Holland was screentested with both Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans before Marvel Studios signed him to a contract. The Hollywood Reporter has published a report about the details of the new Spider-Man casting, and it's in their story that they mention the A-listers who helped out with the process. According to their sources, producer Amy Pascal and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige first had the Iron Man star come »

Fyi: 'Jurassic World' Has Broken a Lot of Box Office Records

23 June 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Brad wrote yesterday, Jurassic World did better over its second weekend than initial estimates indicated, raking in $106.6 million over the Friday-to-Sunday frame to wrest the crown for best second weekend from Marvel's The Avengers, which pulled in $103.1 million during its second weekend back in 2012. Impressive, yes, but that is far from the only record Universal's latest dino adventure has toppled over the course of its box office run. Through Sunday, Jurassic World has made a whopping $402.8 million at the domestic box office, making it Universal's highest grossing movie ever (not accounting for inflation) and also the fastest film to cross the $400 million mark after doing so in just 10 days of release. The previous film to hold that record was, you guessed it, The Avengers, which isn't a surprise, but perhaps it will surprise you to learn that it took Joss Whedon's superhero team-up a full 14 days to hit that mark, »

Captain America: Civil War Has Enlisted Some Great Talent! Here's the Cast

23 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Production on Captain America: Civil War is in full swing! Martin Freeman has joined the expanding cast in an undisclosed, but already awesome, role, and now that Tom Holland is the new Spider-Man, we know he'll be making a cameo. We also know Chris Evans will reprise his role of Captain America, alongside several of his Avengers: Age of Ultron costars. The Avengers team is a little different following the events of the last movie, so not everyone will be back. Take a look at the full cast (so far) here, and stay tuned for more details leading up to the movie's May 6, 2016, release. »

'Jurassic World' Breaks More Box Office Records, Crosses $1B Worldwide

22 June 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After breaking Marvel's The Avengers' biggest opening weekend box office record, Jurassic World has set another record, crossing the $1 billion worldwide milestone in just 13 days, the fastest in history. This mark shatters the previous box office record held by another Universal movie, Furious 7, which passed $1 billion globally in just 17 days. The dinosaur movie has currently earned $402.8 million domestically and $584.4 million internationally for a global haul of $987.2 million, with the movie set to cross $1 billion later today, according to Deadline.

Jurassic World also broke the record for highest second weekend in history with $106.6 million, up from an estimated $102 million reported on Sunday. It has also set records for the fastest movie to reach $400 million domestically, hitting the mark in 10 days, breaking Marvel's The Avengers' record of 14 days, and fastest to $500 million internationally at 11 days, which it crossed on Saturday. Later this week, it will also surpass the original »

'Ant-Man' Will Introduce Janet Van Dyne as Wasp

22 June 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Ant-Man went into production last year, fans have wondered if beloved Marvel character Janet Van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, will make an appearance, since her husband Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) are featured. During an interview conducted on the Atlanta set last year, producer Kevin Feige confirmed with Screenrant that Wasp will be seen in the movie, which explains why Pym recruits Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to become the Ant-Man, instead of his own daughter. Here's what he had to say, when asked how Wasp factors into the story, hinting that Hope may actually get to suit up for action in future movies.

"It factors in, in a number of spoiler-ish ways, but we will see Janet Van Dyne in action in this film. And part of sort of what happened to her. And then we will understand why that »

Jurassic World Scores Biggest Second Weekend Ever & Fastest To Cross $1B Worldwide

22 June 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jurassic World just had the biggest Father's Day ever. The official numbers are in, and it looks like Universal's epic dinosaur sequel had a bigger Father's Day weekend than expected bringing in over $106.59 million over the course of its second weekend, a slighly higher total than the $103.1 million collected by Marvel's The Avengers in 2012 during its second weekend. Additionally, the Colin Trevorrow-directed picture cleared $400 million at the domestic box office on Sunday in a record-shattering 10 days, once again beating out The Avengers, which needed 14 days. Additionally, sometime today, Jurassic World will become the fastest film ever to cross the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office beating the record-breaking performance of Universal's other major blockbuster of the year, the Vin Diesel/Paul Walker-starrer Furious 7. The Chris Pratt-starrer is now the 22nd member of the billion-dollar club and the third film this year to cross the milestone number. »

Ant-man Set Visit: Kevin Feige Talks Expanding Mythology and More

22 June 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After watching so many Marvel movies over the year, it was very cool to finally have the chance to speak to the man behind the McU, Kevin Feige. The Marvel Studios President has been the visionary behind one of cinema’s greatest undertakings, and I was glad to pick his brain when other movie journalists and I got to visit the set of Ant-Man last year. During our conversation with Feige, he covered a lot of ground including where the film fits into the McU, its tone, how the script changed after Edgar Wright left the project, developing the characters, relation to The Avengers, all the work that went into the ants, and much more. Check out the full interview below. What does this movie mean for Marvel, especially at the beginning? Kevin Feige: Well it’s about continuing to expand the cinematic mythology, and continuing to bring new characters, »

Marvel Could Make A Ruffalo-Led "Hulk"

22 June 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Since Mark Ruffalo stepped into the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the first "The Avengers" film and won over many hearts in the process, there's been a push for a standalone Hulk feature with Ruffalo's incarnation.

Marvel has been asked repeatedly about the possibility but has seem oddly uninterested in the idea. A while back a quote from Ruffalo caused a stir because it seemed to have discovered a reason - that Universal still held the rights to produce a standalone Hulk movie. At the time Ruffalo said:

"As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn't really have the rights to that yet. That's still Universal's property, so there's that issue. That's a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don't think that's insurmountable, by the way, but I don't know where it's going from here for me."

Info On Hulk's Status at Universal and Rumors of Kenneth Branagh Returning for 'Thor 3'

22 June 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Heroic Hollywood founder Umberto Gonzalez was on Popcorn Talk and briefly mentioned a possible return for Kenneth Branagh to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Branagh directed (in my opinion) one of the most fun, entertaining and unique movies in the McU, Thor, and Gonzalez says Marvel may be looking to him to return to direct Thor: Ragnarok. "I was hearing that Marvel wanted Kenneth Branagh back for Thor 3," Gonzalez said before adding, "But, he just got an offer to direct Murder on the Orient Express at Fox. So, I don't know if it is going to happen or not. They're thinking about bringing him back into the fold." I don't know how much of an impact Branagh, or any director working for Marvel for that matter, had on the first Thor, but the film managed to make a universe-sprawling story feel small and personal. It had a healthy focus on »

Jurassic World Keeps Killing At the Box Office

21 June 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Like the lab-engendered Indominus Rex and its insatiable appetite, Jurassic World continues to devour and destroy everything that gets in its way, chomping its way to number one at the box office for a second straight week. By pulling in $102 million this weekend, Jurassic World joins Joss Whedon’s The Avengers (2012) as the only two films to gross more than $100 million on two separate weekends. Given it already has $981.3 million, it’ll probably become the fastest film to break the $1 billion mark.Pixar’s Inside Out, which has been reportedly making grown-ups bawl like babies around the country, made $91 million, the second-best opening for a Pixar film behind Toy Story 3’s $110.3 million in 2010. It’s also the highest gross for an original property, meaning a film that isn’t a sequel, remake, reboot, retread, or non-sourced work, beating James Cameron's Avatar, though that film opened on 500 fewer »

'Jurassic' Retains #1, 'Inside Out' Joyful

20 June 2015 9:38 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Jurassic World retained its #1 position at the weekend box office with a less-than-expected -51% decline for a $102M take. Inside Out outperformed even the most optimistic of estimates and banked $91M, making it Pixar's 2nd largest opening weekend, behind Toy Story 3, which made $110.3M in 2010. What is startling about Inside Out's weekend is that it is the highest opening weekend ever for an original property (that is to say one that is not a sequel or a non-sourced work), passing Avatar, which made $77M on its December 18-20, 2009 bow. To be fair, however, James Cameron's sci-fi adventure, took in a higher per-screen average, $23,313 in 3,452 screens, on almost 500 fewer screens (Inside Out's PSA was $23,061 per, in 3,946 venues). Internationally Inside Out made $41M (for a $132M worlwide cume) though it has a staggered overseas rollout, now showing in Australia, Brazil, France, Mexico, and Russia (among 24 other markets), representing just 42% of the global footprint. »

'Hulk' Movie Rights Explained, Solo Movie Still Years Away

20 June 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, Mark Ruffalo made the somewhat startling revelation that a standalone Hulk movie may not happen anytime in the near future because Universal still owns the rights for a standalone sequel to their 2003 Hulk movie and the 2008 follow-up The Incredible Hulk. Many fans have been wondering if this is true, and what is going on with the rights between Universal and Marvel. Forbes has a new report explaining the movie rights shared between the two studios, and what it means for a standalone sequel with Hulk at the center. A movie many fans hope is Planet Hulk. Will a solo movie happen anytime soon? Don't hold your breath.

Marvel won back the Hulk movie production rights in 2005, after Universal failed to put a sequel to 2003's Hulk into immediate production. But they did not obtain the distribution rights, which Universal still has today. And Universal is confirmed to »

Oscar-Nominated Actor Biggest Professional Regret: Turning Down 'Doctor Who'

Ron Moody in Mel Brooks' 'The Twelve Chairs.' The 'Doctor Who' that never was. Ron Moody: 'Doctor Who' was biggest professional regret (See previous post: "Ron Moody: From Charles Dickens to Walt Disney – But No Harry Potter.") Ron Moody was featured in about 50 television productions, both in the U.K. and the U.S., from the late 1950s to 2012. These included guest roles in the series The Avengers, Gunsmoke, Starsky and Hutch, Hart to Hart, and Murder She Wrote, in addition to leads in the short-lived U.S. sitcom Nobody's Perfect (1980), starring Moody as a Scotland Yard detective transferred to the San Francisco Police Department, and in the British fantasy Into the Labyrinth (1981), with Moody as the noble sorcerer Rothgo. Throughout the decades, he could also be spotted in several TV movies, among them:[1] David Copperfield (1969).

One week, two box office records: what Jurassic World and the Fifa film show about today's overcooked movie market

19 June 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Last weekend, Jurassic World scored the biggest ever Us opening, while United Passions set a new low. The disparity shows that today’s cinema is no place for those without a sure grip on marketing, the media – and keeping on-message

One is a hubris-laden epic about a terrifying predator of reptilian cunning savaging his way to the top of the food chain; the other was the one that made $500m at the box office. In one of those twists of perfect statistical synchronicity, the week in which Jurassic World broke every opening-weekend record also saw United Passions – the magnificently ill-timed Fifa biopic starring Tim Roth as Sepp Blatter – register one of the lowest opening Us weekends in recent memory, taking just $918.

As part of its historic worldwide haul of $524.4m, Jurassic World played in 4,274 cinemas to claim a new Us debut record of $208.8m. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, whose »
