Get your first look right here! Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a photo from the upcoming film Truth, which is the directorial debut of screenwriter James Vanderbilt (of The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, White House Down). The film stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes, and presents a behind-the-scenes look inside CBS News during Rather's final days there. This photo only shows Blanchett in the make-up room with Redford as Rather, though you can barely see him only through a mirror. At least it's something, and puts this on the map for the awards season as we end the summer and head deeper into the fall. Blanchett is always one to watch. See below.

The film is based on the Mary Mapes book “Truth and Duty,” and Blanchett plays Mapes, a CBS News journalist and Rather’s producer.
“Truth” follows Mapes and Rather as they uncover allegations that George W. Bush may have been Awol from the U.S. National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. Four documents were presented as authentic in a “60 Minutes” broadcast aired by CBS on Sept. 8, 2004, less than two months before the 2004 election, but it was later determined that CBS had failed to authenticate the documents.
The ensuing scandal ruined Rather’s career »

Chris Hemsworth, aka the Sexiest Man Alive, is following his Thor fame with a couple of comedy roles -- "Vacation" and the new "Ghostbusters" reboot -- but he's also making waves in the thriller "In the Heart of the Sea." The movie is based on the real-life story of the sinking of the whaleship Essex, which inspired the novel "Moby-Dick," and it's headed to theaters December 11. Ron Howard directed the movie, which stars Chris, Cillian Murphy, and Tom Holland, aka the new Spider-Man.
Entertainment Tonight got a first look behind the scenes and, in the on-set video, Chris talks about the cast's 500-calorie-a-day diet to be convincingly starved on screen. Ron Howard mentions that he talked to Tom Hanks about how to lose weight for a film, since the "Cast Away" star has done that a couple of times now.

After months of speculation and rumors, Marvel and Sony Pictures confirmed that Tom Holland is playing the new Peter Parker in Spider-Man, with Jon Watts coming aboard to direct. While Tom Holland was one of the top contenders for quite some time, the studio's choice of Jon Watts, a relatively-unknown director, to take the helm was quite surprising. The filmmaker recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly for his new indie drama Cop Car, which hits theaters next month, where he describes the process of putting together a low-budget indie and then moving on to Spider-Man.
"I'm not really sure what happened. I had never been to Sundance before. I was nervous because that was the first time we were showing the movie to an actual crowd. [Marvel] got to see Cop Car and they really liked it. Now, I've got to make a slightly more expensive version. It's an opportunity to just »
While DC Comics attempts to play catch-up with their “Divergence” marketing campaign, highlighting new and more diverse status-quo switch-ups along with some #1 issues, Marvel Comics continues to kick ass with more awesome comic books. After Secret Wars, an epic event comic from Jonathan Hickman that changes up the continuity by mashing together the Ultimate and 616 universes, Marvel is coming out guns blazing with the “All-New, All-Different” line of comics. Sure, it’s a little wordy, but it sure is exciting.
Here are six reasons you should be pumped for the new face of Marvel comics.
Diverse casts and all-star creators make up new Avengers books
There are two new Avengers books launching in this new line-up, those being A-Force and All-New, All-Different Avengers. A-Force, which we got a taste of in the Secret Wars tie-in miniseries, is about an all-female Avengers team, with She-Hulk, a character whose dedicated series was sadly canceled, »

This is how it goes at the studios these days: you plan for success and worry about what to do when things go wrong afterwards. Sony got burned by this methodology with their "The Amazing Spider-Man" series, forcing them to reboot everything, and get a helping hand from Marvel to start over. But it appears Fox is confident enough about their upcoming "Fantastic Four" that Bryan Singer is already teasing the long-rumored crossover movie with his rejiggered X-Men franchise, though he does make a caveat. “To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, you have to see how the films ['X-Men: Apocalypse' and "Fantastic Four"] evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that,” he told Yahoo Movies. However, it appears conversations are happening, and he says there's a "natural mechanism" they use to make it work. Read More: It's Clobberin' Time In The New Trailer For Josh Trank »

It has to be a bit strange for Sam Raimi to see Spider-Man rebooted twice since his 2007 effort, "Spider-Man 3." There was Sony's Andrew Garfield who led the "The Amazing Spider-Man" series that semi-crashed and burned after two films, with the studio scrapping plans for future films and spinoffs. And now, Marvel is working with Sony to bring the webslinger into their universe, with Tom Holland now wearing the tights and set to appear in "Captain America: Civil War," with a standalone film to follow in 2017. Raimi is very positive about all these developments, and thinks Marvel is on the right track with their concept of going young for the next incarnation. “I saw [both Marc Webb movies], they’re great. And I’m really glad that Marvel’s taking it to high school," he told MTV. "I think that’s gonna be refreshing, and just like my favorite of the Spider-Man comic-books. And I »

The director of Tobey Maguire's trilogy said that he has "a lot of faith" in Marvel to get it right, and thinks that taking it back to high school will be "refreshing".
Raimi told MTV News: "I'm really glad Marvel's taking it to high school. I think that's gonna be refreshing, and just like my favourite of the Spider-Man comic books. And I have a lot of faith that they really know their stuff."
And what would he like to see in the new film? Well, he wants Marvel to explore Peter Parker's relationship with Gwen Stacy and school bully Flash Thompson, who was played by Joe Manganiello in 2002's Spider-Man. »
At one stage, it looked as if the story of the Spider-Man movies was going to take a different turn. Post-Spider-Man 3, director Sam Raimi was all set to make a fourth Spider-Man adventure, before Sony pulled the plug on his Spider-Man 4. John Malkovich had been all but cast as The Vulture in the movie, but the studio went down the cheaper reboot option, bringing Andrew Garfield into the title role (instead of Tobey Maguire), and Marc Webb into direct.
The Amazing Spider-Man movies were born.
Now, in a new interview, Raimi has been chatting about the rebooted movies, and what he thinks about Spider-Man going back to the world of Marvel.
Chatting to MTV, he said that "I saw [both Amazing Spider-Man movies], they're great. And I’m really glad that Marvel’s taking it to high school. »
Now that Sony Pictures and Marvel are finally joining forces on a new Spider-Man movie, fans have been voicing their pleasure and displeasure with the news of a third Spidey reboot in 15 years. Tom Holland has signed on to play Peter Parker, with the studios offering Marisa Tomei the Aunt May role. One person we haven't heard from yet regarding this new web-slinger is director Sam Raimi, who directed Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. While promoting his upcoming Starz TV series Ash Vs. Evil Dead at Comic-Con, the director told MTV that he thought Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were "great," and expressed his excitement that the studios are bringing Peter Parker back to high school.
