Andrew Garfield was unceremoniously dropped from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise when Sony scrapped plans for two more instalments and a Sinister Six spinoff that the British actor was also set to star in. Now, it’s up to In the Heart of the Sea star Tom Holland to carry the mantle and give fans the version of Spider-Man they’ve always wanted to see. Needless to say, the youngster is no doubt feeling the pressure, and had this to say recently about how it feels to be following in the footsteps of Garfield.
“I haven’t [met him], but I’m a huge fan of Andrew and he’s said some lovely things about me in the press the other day. He did such a good job as Peter Parker and it’s really difficult not to copy him because what he did was so perfect and obviously there are going to »

Promotion for In the Heart of the Sea has garnered many interviews with Tom Holland speaking on his breakout role as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in Marvel and Sony’s upcoming reboot. The latest come from Digital Spy, The Irish Examiner, and MTV News, with whom the British actor discussed his Spider-Man predecessor Andrew Garfield, how acrobatics helped him get the part, and more. “I haven't [met him], but I'm a huge fan of Andrew and he's said some lovely things about me in the press the other day,” Holland said of The Amazing Spider-Man star. “He did such a good job as Peter Parker and it's really difficult not to copy him because what he did was so perfect and obviously there are going to be things that I might steal but I hope we get to meet and even work together in the future.” Despite the poor critical reception of »
Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is a movie which has been a very long time coming, and if everything we’ve so far seen and heard from this highly anticipated release is anything to go by, fans are in for a treat next March. However, despite the trailers, images, and detailed magazine features which have so far found their way online, little to nothing is known about the plot.
The title obviously offers up the basics, as does everything mentioned above, but how the story plays out is a mystery, with only conjecture and seemingly endless rumours shedding any sort of light on what’s going to happen when two of the world’s most iconic superheroes meet on the big screen for the first time.

Whoever said the comic book movie bubble was about to burst got their assessment completely wrong. Incredibly, there are far more than 50 comic book adaptations currently in various stages of planning and development, and it seems likely that more will be announced in the next couple of years, with Marvel, Sony, Fox and DC all looking at expanded universes of some sort.
It’s a great time to be alive for comic book movie fans, but that many movies in a matter of four or five years is a daunting prospect, and planning and precedence are both key steps in the process of arranging our excitement levels. Luckily, there’s a spectrum you can all adhere to based on the promise of each individual movie.
In the interest of not stretching too thin on certain franchises, this run-down lumps optimistically optioned sequels in with as unyet released films.

About six months ago, we got our first look at Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man) in the upcoming "Silence" film, which is directed by Martin Scorsese. And now, we have a second photo, giving us a look at Liam Neeson. Check it out below. Plot: The story is set in the 17th century as two Jesuit priests face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and to spread the gospel of Christianity. The new movie is based on Shusako Endo's 1966 novel and co-stars Adam Driver, Issei Ogata, and Tadanobu Asano. A release date has yet to be announced. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
The process of excitement for us filmgoers is normally the same. We hear about a film in development that appeals to us, especially if it’s the next entry in a popular franchise, and then we patiently wait for, or perhaps anxiously anticipate all that comes next: director, screenwriter and casting announcements, set photos and promotional artwork, a release date and the highly revered trailer. We think about so many factors leading into a film’s production, exponentially raising our level of enthusiasm for something that has yet to be released. One thing we don’t think about as much as we should, however, is how much the film costs to make.
We know that movies aren’t cheap for the studios, but perhaps we don’t think about total cost as much because things like trailers, or prior knowledge of a franchise, give us something of an approximation that will tell us, »

Captain Marvel, which arrives in 2019, is Marvel and Disney's first solo female superhero adventure. And as expected, there are plenty of actresses vying for the role. Perhaps none more so than Katee Sackhoff. But as she recently revealed to Playboy, there may be another Marvel character that she is more interested in, especially as the cattle call for Carol Danvers becomes increasingly crowded.
Katee Sackhoff is the queen of nerd franchises. Everyone fell in love with her in Battlestar Galactica. And she carried that good will over to a role in the sci-fi thriller Riddick starring opposite Vin Diesel. She's tussled with serial killer Mike Myers in Halloween: Resurrection, played with the The Bionic Woman, and run alongside Jack Bauer on 24. She's even hung out with Leonard and Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. Twice. And despite the fact that she's voiced a popular Star Wars character, she still has »

Although 2012.s The Amazing Spider-Man isn.t the worst of the web-swinging hero.s five movies, it did have its fair share of detractors. Frequent criticism was aimed at Curt Connors, a.k.a. The Lizard, who many felt was a lackluster and bland antagonist. Well, not to worry, fans who were disappointed, actor Rhys Ifans feels the same way, not just about his character, but the movie as a whole. Ifans had a different idea about what the role entailed after studying the source material, but as he explained to Total Film (via ComicBookMovie), how the final product did not turn out the way he liked. Ifans stated: As I got into it, I remember looking into The Lizard and there was one of the comics where Dr. Curt Connors goes home, and he's messing about with his Lizard-ness. He takes his work home with him, and he eats »
During an extensive interview in the latest issue of Total Film magazine, Rhys Ifans shared strong opinions about his role as Dr. Curt Connors in The Amazing Spider-Man, and how the 2012 reboot did not (or never would) meet his expectations. The Welsh actor also shared his viewpoint, or rather hopes, for the Webslinger's upcoming reboot over at Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. "Anthropologically, it was fascinating," said Rhys Ifans of The Amazing Spider-Man. "If I was an anthropologist, it would have been very valuable... As an actor, it was a lesson." The actor then said his was not into comics prior to landing the Lizard role, but he was a bit familiar with the supervillain. "As I got into it, I remember looking into The Lizard and there was one of the comics where Dr. Curt Connors goes home, and he's messing about with his Lizard-ness," he started. "He takes »
Remarkably underused across Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies and truly magnetic in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, few actresses boast the rich and varied career of Sally Field, who first caught Hollywood’s eye during her screen debut in 1967’s The Way West. Fast forward to today and there is already a lot of early buzz surrounding Field’s next appearance, the title role in Hello, My Name is Doris.
Written and directed by Michael Showalter, the film follows Doris, a humble, softly-spoken widow who is shaken out of her isolation after crossing paths with John (New Girl‘s Max Greenfield), an attractive and much, much younger co-worker who catches her eye. And so, in an attempt to bridge the generation gap, Field’s protagonist begins to roll back the years, attending concerts and even creating a false Facebook account all in the hope of earning John’s admiration. »

Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 (or whatever it ends up being called) has officially been put on hold at 20th Century Fox, and there's a chance that it won't ever get made. This should come as no surprise. The moment director Ridley Scott announced his Prometheus sequel was being called Alien: Paradise Lost, rumors began to fly that Neill Blomkamp's xenomorph project, which has been called a true sequel to James Cameron's 1986 sci-fi blockbuster Aliens, was being hung out to dry. What this does is clear up some confusion amongst fans as the studio tries to sort out this shared universe. Here's what Neill Blomkamp had to say on his official Twitter account.
"Alien is kinda holding/ pending prometheus 2. So I shall be working on other things... as much as I love the xeno- and Lt Ripley"
Every studio is hurrying to create their own shared universe, which spans multiple sequels and spinoffs. »
Sam Raimi made two spectacular Spider-Man movies and one very disappointing one. Why Spider-Man 3 went so horribly wrong is hard to say, though many have actually blamed it on the franchise’s producers as it was Avi Arad who forced the filmmaker to throw Venom into the mix, a villain Raimi has since admitted to having very little interest in.
Regardless, he’s now admitted in a recent interview that he “messed up on the third one,” and expressed a desire to get a second chance to return to the franchise in some way:
“I’m not really on top of it. I know they made two [Amazing Spider-Man] features, and obviously, I’ve seen those. I think they’re so complete now, Marvel. They probably don’t need me anymore. But if they needed me? I’d love to. It’s great to be wanted.”
Marvel has obviously hired Cop Car »

"Do you guys know Doris? She's kinda weird." The trailer has debuted for a quirky, cute, charming indie drama called Hello, My Name Is Doris starring Sally Field. After a quiet few years in her career, Field has roared back recently playing Aunt May in The Amazing Spider-Man, not to mention Mary Todd Lincoln in Lincoln. She's back in a leading role again here, as Doris, an older woman pining for the young new guy at her work - played by Max Greenfield, from "New Girl". The entire cast includes Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Gallagher, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tyne Daly and Beth Behrs. This is adapted from a short film by Laura Terruso and looks occasionally funny, but not really my kind of character study. Take a look.
