‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Zendaya | Written by Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers | Directed by Jon Watts

Obviously, “Homecoming” has multiple meanings, not least of which is Spider-Man’s switch to the cool side of the Marvel fence, outside of Sony’s control. Makes sense. One could argue that the very DNA of the modern Marvel movie machine is based on what made Sam Raimi’s first two movies so successful: larger-than-life characters tackling real-world themes, with a lightness of touch that didn’t undermine the gravity of the drama. It’s a difficult balancing act; one which Marc Webb’s aborted reboot largely failed to replicate.

Today, Marvel is a blockbuster production line of Toyota-like efficiency, and part of its success lies in squeezing the authorship out of its directors. It was too much for Edgar Wright,

Dora the Explorer Live-Action Movie Is Happening with Producer Michael Bay

Dora the Explorer Live-Action Movie Is Happening with Producer Michael Bay
After languishing in development for the past two years, Paramount is finally moving forward with its Dora the Explorer adaptation, bringing on writer Nick Stoller to write the script. This Dora the Explorer live-action movie was first put into development exactly two years ago, when the studio brought on Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) to write the screenplay. There has been no movement on the project since then, but now it seems that the studio is moving forward with a new writer working on the script, and the studio eyeing a 2019 release date, with Michael Bay producing alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

The project will be developed under the new Paramount Players division of the studio, which is devoted to producing films based on properties that fall under the banner of Paramount's parent corporation, Viacom, which include Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and Bet. Brian Robbins,

Baby Driver review

Edgar Wright turns his hand to a hip, 70s style thriller with Baby Driver. We take a closer look...

It’s one of the drawbacks as life as a filmmaker: you can sink months or even years of your life into a screenplay that will never be sold or a movie project that will never go into production. Such was the fate of Ant-Man, director Edgar Wright’s take on the Marvel superhero; Wright departed the project in 2014, eight years after he began working on it with co-writer Joe Cornish. The film was finally brought to the screen by Yes Man director Peyton Reed; like David Cronenberg’s Total Recall or Guillermo del Toro’s The Hobbit, Wright’s Ant-Man became one of cinema’s what-might-have-beens.

Jim Carrey to face trial over death of former girlfriend by Jennie Kermode - 2017-06-01 17:57:02

Jim Carrey Photo: Kevin1230

Yes Man star Jim Carrey has been ordered to attend court on the 26th of April next year in connection with the death of his former girlfriend Cathriona White, a judge ruled yesterday. The actor and comedian faces separate lawsuits filed by White's mother, Brigid Sweetman, and estranged husband, Mark Burton. Both allege that he supplied White with prescription drugs on which she subsequently overdosed, thereby contributing to her death.

White, a make-up artist and stylist who had a history of depression and had previously attempted suicide, died in September 2015. She and Carrey had ended their three year relationship shortly beforehand but were apparently still close, with Carrey insisting that he still loved her. Sweetman has made several additional allegations about Carrey's conduct toward White, accusing him of exploiting and manipulating her and maintaining that she has a letter written by her daughter which supports her side of.

Will Ferrell and Jason Momoa to star in untitled comedy from Paramount

Deadline is reporting that Paramount Pictures has gained an untitled comedy pitch for Aquaman star Jason Momoa and Saturday Night Live veteran Will Ferrell. The script has been written by Andrew Mogel and Jared Paul (Yes Man, The Grinder) and is described as “Galaxy Quest meets Ocean’s 11“.

Though an official logline hasn’t been revealed yet, the film will see Ferrell as a washed out actor who reunites with his TV son, played by Momoa, who has become a huge star since their show ended and presumably wants his help to get his career back on track. Nicholas Stoller (Bad Neighbours), who also co-wrote Yes Man with Mogel and Paul, will produce the film with Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez banner.

Ferrell will be seen in The House this summer and is set to film Daddy’s Home 2 after that while Momoa will appear as Aquaman in November’s Justice League.

The Movie “Yes Man” Is Perfect for People in a Rut

It had been a while since I saw the movie Yes Man and perhaps because I’m in somewhat of a transitional stage of life, it meant a great deal to me. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of anything Jim Carrey after the movie Liar Liar but I admit the man certainly has his moments. While the movie Yes Man isn’t vintage Jim Carrey it’s still an incredibly uplifting and fun movie to watch. Plus it’s a got a pre-superstar Bradley Cooper in it as well as Zooey Deschanel playing the female lead. If you haven’t seen it

Review: The Belko Experiment is a Viciously Entertaining Exploration of Workplace Survival

Anyone who has spent countless hours stuck in a cubicle under fluorescent lighting, listening to their fellow employees prattle on about nonsense will find a lot to relate to in Greg McLean’s The Belko Experiment, which takes the notion of office politics to explosive and viciously entertaining levels where no one is safe. The amount of carnage that McLean and writer James Gunn unleash in The Belko Experiment is jaw-dropping at times, and even if you’ve never been subjected to the horrors of corporate America, there’s still a lot of subversive fun to be had once the games begin and heads start popping.

In The Belko Experiment, John Gallagher Jr. (Hush, Short Term 12, 10 Cloverfield Lane) stars as Mike Milch, an employee of Belko Industries who has relocated to Bogotá, Columbia, and while he recognizes he’s just another cog in the wheel at his workplace, he

‘Harry Potter’ Producer Talks About His Feline Fantasy Film With Alibaba

David Heyman, the London-based producer of “Harry Potter,” “Gravity,” and “Paddington,” among others, had a big weekend in Beijing.

On Saturday, he mingled with fans ahead of the China release of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” On Sunday, he was unveiled as the producer of “Warriors,” a film project that is one of the first major pieces of foreign intellectual property that China’s Alibaba Pictures Group will develop and produce from scratch. The film will be based on a series of books, written by a collective of authors under the pseudonym Erin Hunter, about clans of forest-dwelling cats.

Heyman spoke with Variety of commonalities between J.K. Rowling’s books and “Warriors” — particularly the recurring theme of characters as outsiders — as he sets about trying to adapt the complex series of novels.

Variety: How was your experience meeting the Chinese public for “Fantastic Beasts”?

Clip and images from season 3 of All Hail King Julien

With season three of DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien set to premiere on Netflix this Friday (June 17th), we’ve got a batch of images from the show, along with a clip that sees Princess Julienne (Angelica Huston) and Prince Barty (John Michael Higgins), King Julien’s dramatic and needy parents, arriving for unannounced for a royal visit. Check them out here…

This season, alongside Danny Jacobs’ Emmy®-winning comedic work as King Julien, All Hail King Julien has attracted accomplished talent with A-level guest stars including Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family, The Royal Tenenbaums), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development), and John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Yes Man).

You might be familiar with the Emmy®-winning show, but did you know that All Hail King Julien isn’t just a tropical adventure for children? In fact, the show has become a mecca of pop culture phenomena and not-so-subtle adult humor, bringing the jungle of Madagascar closer to modern society than you might think. With skewering parallels to our addictive consumption of coffee and ridiculous “high fashion” trends, biting representations of class and beauty standards, and emotional characters that challenge stereotypical gender roles, All Hail King Julien produces witty observations that are meant for modern-day thinkers of all ages.

All Hail King Julien season 3 lands on Netflix on Friday, June 17th.

Neighbors 2 Review: Don't Rush This Sorority

Neighbors 2 Review: Don't Rush This Sorority
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is a sloppily crafted, dismal sequel. It has a few humorous moments, but not enough to make up for the terrible execution. This is very disappointing. The first film was original, very funny, and had great chemistry between the leads. Sorority Rising has the coherence of an Adam Sandler film. Seth Rogen and his production team obviously dialed this one in. The one saving grace is the message. The film takes a stance on female empowerment and gender equity...In drunken, drug fueled debauchery.

Neighbors 2 opens with Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) Radner expecting their second child. They have purchased a bigger house in the suburbs. The deal to sell their current house is seemingly closed, until they learn they have thirty days in escrow before it's finalized. Chloe Moretz co-stars as Shelby, a college freshman dissatisfied with campus sororities and the sexist rules they endure.

The D Train (aka Bad Bromance) movie review: when idiot men can do no wrong

Woefully bad feint at a dramedy in which everyone agrees the “hero” is a terrible excuse for a man… and he gets the message that he is awesome anyway. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If there is a point to this woefully unfunny, outright galling feint at a dramedy, I can’t find it. I mean, it cannot possibly be that the way for a man to regain his mojo — or to find it in the first place, if he seems to have never had any — is to spin a complicated web of deceit that involves lying and cheating and trashing the few important relationships in his life? Can it? Jack Black (Goosebumps, Sex Tape) is the same-old hapless schmoe he always plays, but his Dan Landsman isn’t a supposedly lovable loser this time,

Nick Stoller Lands Comedy Series at Netflix (Exclusive)
Netflix is nearing a deal to order an ensemble comedy series from “Sex Tape” and “Get Him to the Greek” scribe Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco, Variety has learned exclusively.
