Sony to build “a whole Spider-Man universe” with Marvel

17 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony announced that it was developing a further two sequels to the Marc Webb reboot, along with spinoff movies for The Sinister Six and Venom.

Of course, the negative reaction to the 2014 sequel put paid to those plans, leading Sony to form a partnership with Marvel Studios to relaunch the wall-crawler as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War.

With filming on next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming now underway, The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, asking him whether the studio still intends on launching a “whole Spider-Man universe” and has any plans to work with Marvel beyond the main Spider-Man series.

“Yes to both those questions,” said Rothman. “It’s been fantastic, our relationship with Marvel. Sony has the ultimate authority. But we have deferred the creative lead to Marvel, because they know what they’re doing. »

Danny McBride featured in new Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes image

23 June 2016 4:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of weeks Ridley Scott has given us a peek behind-the-scenes of Alien: Covenant with production photos featuring Katherine Waterston and Michael Fassbender, and now it’s the turn of Danny McBride, who is joined by the legendary director on what we presume is the Covenant spacecraft.

See Also: Spoiler: Katherine Waterston’s Alien: Covenant character revealed

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on August 4th, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Adds Bokeem Woodbine As Yet Another Villain

23 June 2016 2:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The casting announcement situation on Spider-Man: Homecoming is spiralling out of control, with multiple new additions to the star-studded ensemble joining every few hours. While most of the actors attached to the webhead’s new solo outing have likely been involved for some time, it’s only now that the trades are getting the intel.

With that being said, following on from news that Breaking Bad-Better Call Saul actor Michael Mando had signed up, Bokeem Woodbine is now confirmed to be part of the film as well.

Specifics on who he’s set to play are, as expected, being kept under wraps, but THR suspects that Woodbine won’t be on the side of the good guys. He’s expected to be teaming up with the movie’s prolific roster of villains that so far includes Michael Keaton and PrometheusLogan Marshall-Green. That pairing are rumored to be »

New Behind-The-Scenes Alien: Covenant Image Features Danny McBride In The Interior Of The Ship

22 June 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last time we got a glimpse of Michael Fassbender's David, and this latest behind-the-scenes snap from the set of Alien: Covenant provides a first look at Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder, This Is The End, Pineapple Express) alongside director Ridley Scott. No details on his character just yet - but it's obviously safe to assume he'll be a member of the Covenant's crew. The image also gives us a good look at the interior of the new spacecraft. “Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming adds Beasts of No Nation star Abraham Attah

22 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The cast of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming just can’t seem to stop growing, as Deadline reports that young Beasts of No Nation star Abraham Attah has signed on to the film in an unknown role.

Attah’s performance in last year’s Beasts of No Nation earned him an enormous amount of praise, with many viewers labeling him as a talent to look out for. The 15-year-old actor garnered nominations from various award ceremonies, including the Young Artist Awards, the Screen Actos Guild Awards and the Critics Choice Awards. He even took home an Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead and tied at the National Board of Review, USA for Breakthrough Performance with Room star Jacob Tremblay.

While Homecoming is certainly the most high-profile project on the horizon for the actor, he will also appear in Shane Caruth’s third film, succeeding Primer and Upstream ColorThe Modern Ocean. »

First Look At Danny McBride In Alien: Covenant

22 June 2016 12:49 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Having seen him tear up the small screen as the hilariously brash Kenny Powers, I think we can all agree that Danny McBride been announced as a cast member of the decidedly somber Alien: Covenant was something that came all the way out of left field. I actually love the actor, but I can’t imagine him facing off a Xenomorph attack without making some sly, sarcastic quip afterwards. Time will tell what he brings to the role, but we have our first look at McBride on set with Ridley Scott, which also gives us a great look at the practicals sets used to bring the Covenant ship to life. There’s a definite feel of the original Alien to them, and that’s one thing that is getting me excited for this return to the universe.

Danny McBride shows his face in latest Alien: Covenant set photo

If there's a lesson I should take away from Prometheus, it's to not let myself get too hyped up about a film. The images and trailers released for Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi painted the picture of something brilliant; the end result, while beautiful, didn't exactly live up to what I'd imagined. Production on Alien: Covenant has been underway for... Read More »

‘Alien: Covenant’: Noomi Rapace Reprising Role of Elizabeth Shaw

21 June 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since before it was even officially announced, the biggest question “Alien: Covenant” had xenomorph-obsessed fans asking is whether Noomi Rapace would be reprising her “Prometheus” role. Deadline is reporting that, despite it long being said that she would not, Rapace is on the “Covenant” set in Australia.

She’s there to shoot a week’s worth of scenes for the sequel (which, given the “Alien” series’ complicated chronology, is also a prequel).

While a lot of movies try to hide from fans during production, Alien: Covenant is not one of them. We've already seen plenty from the set as shooting continues in Australia. This includes massive set photos that show off new aliens, a first look at Michael Fassbender's return as David, and the introduction of Katherine Waterston as Daniels.

This latest image shows McBride aboard the Covenant. He is seen going over some important dialogue with director Ridley Scott. The actor's character has yet to be revealed. But we do know that he is part of the crew piloting the colony ship Covenant to uncharted areas of the universe. This photo is simply titled 'Mission Debriefing', »

Win A Family Four-Pack Of Passes To The Advance Screening Of The Bfg In St. Louis

21 June 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Bfg (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the Bfg prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the Bfg is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The Bfg brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, »

Ridley Scott And Danny McBride Feature In New Alien: Covenant Set Photo

21 June 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant has already been in production for a while now, it was only yesterday that Noomi Rapace officially signed on to reprise her role of Elizabeth Shaw. She’ll be joining a cast that includes the returning Michael Fassbender and newcomers like Katherine Waterson, Billy Crudup, Demian Bichir and Danny McBride, who just so happens to be featured in a new set photo alongside Scott.

Like the last set photo we got, it doesn’t reveal anything significant, but at this stage in the production, we’re not expecting to be seeing a whole lot. We’ll likely get the first trailer in the Fall, maybe a bit sooner, but right now filming is still underway and the studio is not ready to let too much trickle out.

Noomi Rapace Returns For ‘Alien: Covenant’ as First Look at Danny McBride Arrives

21 June 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although production has been going on for some months, the cast for Ridley Scott’s next installment in the Alien franchise is continuing to expand. Deadline is reporting that Prometheus star Noomi Rapace will take part in next summer’s Alien: Covenant, shooting multiple weeks of scenes. This clearly suggests a reprisal of her role as Elizabeth Shaw, one of two survivors of the Prometheus’ fated expedition. She will join the other survivor of that journey, the returning Michael Fassbender as David 8, a robot with a sharp wit and killer curiosity.

Alien: Covenant joins these two returning members with newcomers to the science-fiction series, including Katherine Waterston (whose character is rumored to have familial relations with the franchise’s biggest star), Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, and Demian Bichir. As we await the first trailer, which we imagine will arrive this winter, check out the behind-the-scenes photos thus far, including our first look at McBride. »

First she was in, then it was only a cameo, then she was out. Now it looks like Noomi Rapace is back in for Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant" at 20th Century Fox.

Deadline reports that Rapace will reprise her role as Elizabeth Shaw, the lead character from "Prometheus" in this follow-up which is currently shooting in Sydney, Australia.

The actress will reportedly shoot several weeks worth of scenes for the film which also stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Billy Crudup.

The second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with "Prometheus," "Alien: Covenant" connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic and begins with the colony ship Covenant bound for a remote planet - a dark, dangerous world whose sole inhabitant is the 'synthetic' David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Jack Paglen and Michael Green are providing the screenplay. »
