Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge Trailer Takes Andrew Garfield to War

28 July 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After portraying the iconic superhero Spider-Man in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man and the 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Andrew Garfield will play a real life hero later this year in Hacksaw Ridge. Today we have the first trailer from this true story adaptation, which marks the directorial return of Mel Gibson, in his first movie behind the camera since 2006's Apocalypto. While Mel Gibson doesn't star in this movie, there is still a star-studded cast in place.

Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved »

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Trailer: Mel Gibson’s WWII Drama Stars Andrew Garfield As A Conscientious Objector On The Front Lines

28 July 2016 7:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been ten years since Mel Gibson directed his last feature, the epic film “Apocalypto,” but now Gibson returns behind the camera with a WWII drama about the first conscientious objector to ever win the Medal of Honor. The film follows Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield), a Seventh Day Adventist whose religious beliefs prevented him from picking up a weapon. He goes through training, taking the brunt of abuse from his fellow soldiers who believes he’s a coward, but eventually lands on the front lines without a weapon in hand. Doss ended up saving 75 of his comrades during the Battle of Okinawa and was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor by President Truman for his bravery. The film also stars Vince Vaughn (“Swingers”), Sam Worthington (“Avatar”), Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”), Hugo Weaving (“The Lord of the Rings”), Ryan Corr (“Where The Wild Things Ar”), and more. »

Is Betty Brant the Love Interest in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

27 July 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the course of the last several weeks, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming has absolutely exploded, adding talent left and right to the point where it became a little difficult to keep track of. The casting announcements have settled down as shooting is well underway in Atlanta, but now comes the process of trying to figure out who exactly everyone is playing. It looks like we may be able to cross one name off the board, as a source claims to know who newcomer Angourie Rice is playing in the movie.

According to the fan site Marvelous Realm, The Nice Guys actress will be taking on the role of Betty Brant, who first made an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #4. Brant is one of the earliest characters to appear in Spider-Man comic books and has been tremendously important to several story lines throughout the wall crawler's history. Here is what »

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Suicide Squad In St. Louis

27 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From director David Ayer comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith, Oscar winner Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman and Oscar nominee Viola Davis.

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super-Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC, the film also stars Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Gives Flash Thompson a Drastic Makeover

26 July 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Leading into Marvel Studios' Hall H panel at Comic-Con on Saturday afternoon, we knew that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be part of the panel, thanks to social media posts from directors Scott Derrickson and James Gunn. One of the panel's big surprises was the arrival of the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast, who had taken a break in production in Atlanta to showcase the very first footage to the Comic-Con crowd. That footage confirmed that one iconic character has a much different look in this movie.

One scene from the Comic-Con footage featured Tony Revolori, who, when he was cast in April, was said to be playing a character named Manuel, described as a "schoolyard enemy" to Tom Holland's Peter Parker, much like Flash Thompson from the comic books. It seems the name Manuel was all just a red herring, since the footage confirmed »

Should Sony risk a Ghostbusters sequel?

26 July 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at the franchise potential of Ghostbusters

The second week numbers are in, and it’s what most people expected (at least it’s what I predicted on last week’s podcast). After a fairly decent (but not all that great) $46 million opening weekend, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot dropped 54% to earn $21 million in its second week. Which, in fairness to it, held up pretty well against great openings for Star Trek Beyond and Lights Out, and the animated behemoth The Secret Life of Pets (which continues to make baffling big money).

Who is to blame for the mediocre performance? Was it all the pre-release negativity from misogynistic Twitter and Reddit users? Did the over-bearing Ghostbusters defenders put off potential other movie goers? Is America not ready for an all-female horror comedy? Or are we just sick of cash-grab reboots in general?

All are valid questions, but only »

Comics: A Major Spider-man Villain Returns For 'The Clone Conspiracy'

26 July 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Doctor Octopus is back! Or at least, he will be in his full glory when The Amazing Spider-Man #20 hits stands in October. Technically, the villain has been lurking inside the Living Brain since his apparent demise at the end of The Superior Spider-Man. While Ock seemingly learned a lesson in responsibility and heroism upon his death, it can probably be surmised that this is a copy of the villain's brain before he learned all those moral lessons. It's currently unknown how Doctor Octopus will return, but if the solicitation and event title is anything to go by, you can probably expect some form of cloned body. Check out the solicitation and the cover by Alex Ross below! "Death is no more, and Doctor Octopus Has Returned!!! How is he back? And what does he have to do with The Jackal?"   »

Spider-Man Homecoming Character Names Confirmed by Director

24 July 2016 5:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been just over a month since Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming started filming in Atlanta, with many fans wondering if the cast and crew would take a break in the production to swing by Marvel's Hall H panel at Comic-Con yesterday afternoon. As it turns out, those rumors proved to be true, with director Jon Watts and cast members Tom Holland, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon and Laura Harrier stopping by to reveal the first footage, along with new concept art that confirms the presence of the movie's main villain, Vulture. While the footage hasn't debuted online quite yet, a new interview with the director and stars reveals exactly who Tom Holland's co-stars are playing.

Heading into Sdcc, we knew that Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. were reprising their Captain America: Civil War roles as Peter Parker, Aunt May and Tony Stark/Iron Man, respectively. However, while »

See Josh Hutcherson’s (Amazing!) ‘Spider-Man’ Audition

22 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Just before Andrew Garfield booked the role of Spidey in big-screen Marvel Entertainment reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2010, rumors were flying about the shortlist of actors tapped for the role: Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, Ose Hayble, and Anton Yelchin were among them.  But Josh Hutcherson of “Hunger Games” fame went so far as to record an elaborately choreographed sizzle reel, full of real flips and high-flying kicks, for producers to consider. The comic book–loving actor, only 17 at the time, has the youthful looks and flair for awkwardness required of Peter Parker; what many didn’t know was that he also had the action hero bona fides. Allegedly staged by stunt and fight choreographer Larnell Stovall, the extended fight sequence is so well produced, it’s easy to imagine Hutcherson’s spidey senses tingling.

This Week in Marvel Unlimited

19 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week I wanted to read a classic Spider-Man story I hadn’t had a chance to read yet, Kraven’s Last Hunt. While I’ve certainly been aware of Kraven through the years, he was not really on the level of Green Goblin or Black Cat in my book so I hadn’t read many of his adventures.

Boy was that a mistake. Kraven’s Last Hunt has to go down in my book as my favorite Spider-Man story. If I had to compare it to anything, it would be like if Quentin Tarantino penned a book for Marvel. The mood is creepy throughout. The first image alone, with Kraven crouched on the ground front and center on the page, shows how ferocious, evil, and plainly insane the character is. I love how J.M. DeMatteis was able to portray Kraven as clearly insane but with enough sanity in him »

Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

16 July 2016 5:26 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad

Remember when Sony rebooted Sam Raimi’s take on Spider-Man (2002) with The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)? Their whole conceit at the time appeared to be “What if you didn’t know the story?” so they just told it again. Only everyone actually did know the story. The result was an instantly forgettable retread, useless but for the printing of money. While that may have been the whole point, it left a lousy corporate aftertaste. It took the world gargling with some Marvel Studios mouthwash (aka Captain America: Civil War) to make people excited about Spidey again.

The good news is that the mega corporation appears to have learned from their mistakes. Ghostbusters Now does not moronically assume you don’t know Ghostbusters Then. Sure, it’s the same story again — the Ghostbusters set up shop, refine technobabble gadgets, fight against a supernatural »

Spoilers or How To Stop Worrying And Love The Internet

13 July 2016 3:16 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Spoilers. Whether you love them or hate them, in the past fifteen to twenty years our internet based culture have brought on an entire industry devoted to telling you what is going to happen to your favorite film, comic, book, etc. before they come out. Heck, before television, radio, and movies, people would skip to the last page to find out who the killer was or if Tom Sawyer survived. We’re an inquisitive species and when something grabs our interest, we want to know everything about it.

But can it go too far? On Monday, the website “Bleeding Cool” released some scoops that contained some pretty specific spoilers for upcoming Marvel Comics titles. Dan Slott, writer for “The Amazing Spider-Man” and other titles, went ballistic, calling out the website for what he considered predatory practices. His opinion, shared by Brian Bendis, is that websites like that should not under »

This Week in Marvel Unlimited

12 July 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On top of all the new releases this week in Marvel Unlimited, including the final issue of Secret Wars, I wanted to re-read a few issues of one of my favorite comics “Ms. Marvel”. Set in New Jersey, it details the rise of one Kamala Khan, bringing her from your average teenager dealing with all the pressures of being a young woman to, thanks to a cloud of Terrigan Mist, taking over the mantle of Ms. Marvel from Carol Danvers.

I fell in love with this comic from page one. Much like how Stan Lee presented Peter Parker in Amazing Fantasy #15 all those years ago, G. Willow Wilson and company present a character that anyone can relate to. She’s awkward, dealing with the feelings young kids get when they first realize others can be attractive. She has family that she feels is overbearing but she loves them nonetheless. She »

First "Ghostbusters" Reboot Reviews Are In

10 July 2016 11:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The review embargo has lifted for Sony's "Ghostbusters" reboot and so far the reaction has been fairly consistent - a little tepid, neither gushingly good or aggressively bad. Much of the criticism isn't levelled at the cast or director, but the overall film itself with complaints of lacking any innovation and being too slavish to the original. As a result it never seems to escape its shadow.

That said, there's also been praise for some of the scares and key character moments, and the film is doing well on the aggregate review sites - 76% on Rotten Tomatoes and 67% on Metacritic at this point in time. Not great, but good scores nonetheless.

Interestingly there's a good mix of female reviewers out there tackling the topic to try and provide a more balanced perspective than we usually get with Summer tentpoles. Here's just some of the sample quotes below:

Tom Holland Posts Great Selfie To Commemorate One Year Until 'Spider-man: Homecoming'

8 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With Peter Parker being the obsessive little shutterbug that he is, you'd have to imagine that a modern day take on the character would likely have a solid collection of selfies. Well, Tom Holland has just shared a fairly epic one with all of us, and he did it last night to commemorate the fact that we are one year away from the release of Spider-man: Homecoming.

You can scope out the selfie, which depicts Holland in full Spidey garb, looming over a set filled with Spider-man: Homecoming crew members, right here:

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Adds ‘Nice Guys’ Standout Angourie Rice to Its Already Impressive Young Cast

7 July 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Angourie Rice was rightly hailed by many as a highlight of Shane Black’s “The Nice Guys,” her performance more than holding its own alongside those of co-stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. Marvel and Sony appear to have taken notice, as Rice was just announced as having joined the cast of “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

This Week on Marvel Unlimited

5 July 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Print is a dying breed. Newspapers and magazines are seeing subscriber numbers dwindle in the wake of the digital revolution. Why should folks pay for a physical copy of a publication that may not survive the wrath of a poorly trained paperboy or a malicious mailman when they can get the same content on their mobile device?

Comic book companies, while still selling pretty consistently, are finding ways to adjust to the changing ways folks buy their products. Marvel Comics stands out with their Marvel Unlimited app. For $9.99 a month or $69 a year, subscribers have access to over 17,000 comics and counting. New comics hit every Monday. Comics that are on sale at your local comic book store today will hit Unlimited about six months after they hit shelves. Marvel Unlimited is a great tool for folks that want to dive into the Marvel Universe, yet are hesitant due to not knowing where to start reading. »

Paul Feig interview: Ghostbusters, the web, Sony

3 July 2016 3:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 4, 2016

Paul Feig chats to us about his new Ghostbusters film, the internet backlash, the Sony attack, and the last two years of his life…

“I felt the pressure”, Paul Feig admitted, as we sat down to talk about his new film, Ghostbusters. Feig, a geek of some vintage (his two books are sublime, Freak & Geeks remains a superb piece of television, nearly two decades on), has over the past half decade established himself as one of Hollywood’s most successful contemporary comedy directors, off the back of Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy.

And then he took on Ghostbusters, a project that has seen him in the crosshairs of some legitimate and some utterly vile comments.

It seems almost surreal, after the storm of the past year or two, to finally be at the point where we get to see the film itself. But here we are, and here – in full context, »
