Watch: 'The Dead Lands' Clip Brings Out the Warrior Spirit (Exclusive)

23 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Maori culture has been popping up in movies for quite a while, both in small doses (most recently Ben Kingsley's character in Ender's Game) and large (the terrific Once Were Warriors), but no one has made a movie quite like Toa Fraser's The Dead Lands before, which is a no-punches-pulled action movie about warring Maori tribes fighting to honor the souls of their loved ones. If you imagine The Dead Lands as Apocalypto, but with rich Maori mythology and iconography instead of Mayan, you'll be in the right ballpark. But you don't have to imagine, because we've got a clip from the movie - available now on VOD - that captures the intense warrior spirit that permeates the whole thing. But before we even get to the clip, it's worth pointing out two...

One of These Skinny White Dweebs Will Probably Be Your Next Spider-Man

23 April 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Marvel and Sony are looking for a teenage Peter Parker for their shared Spider-Man reboot, and according to a leaked short list, the new Spidey will likely be one of these five guys (from left to right): Asa Butterfield, who was Hugo in Hugo and Ender in Ender's Game. Tom Holland, who currently plays Thomas Cromwell's son on Wolf Hall. Liam James, who starred in The Way, Way Back. Timothée Chalamet, who was Dana Brody's obnoxious boyfriend on Homeland. Nat Wolff, who was the sidekick in The Fault in Our Stars and will soon star in Paper Towns. All of them are appropriately young, nerdy, and vaguely recognizable. May the best web-slinger win! (And if he doesn't, may the role be filled by a surprise last-minute addition, as happened with Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy.) »

23 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Five Actors in Talks for Spider-Man Reboot

23 April 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently reported that Sony Pictures teamed up with Marvel on the future of the Spider-Man franchise. The superhero will next appear in "Captain America 3: Civil War" on May 6th, 2016 and then get his own solo film on July 28th, 2017. Sony and Marvel have no interest in bringing back Andrew Garfield and have been discussing making Peter Parker a teenager. And now that the studios have about 2-3 weeks left before they have to pick an actor to play the role, we get a list of who is being considered. Thanks to The Wrap, we know that the contenders are Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game, Hugo), Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea), Timothee Chalamat (Interstellar) and Liam James (The Way Way Back). Meanwhile, Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) remains the frontrunner to direct the new "Spider-Man" movie. »

Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff, And More On Shortlist To Play Marvel's 'Spider-Man'

23 April 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Captain America: Civil War" is shooting very soon, and the rumors have had it that Marvel's rebooted Spider-Man will make his first appearance in the film. But before that can happen, they need to cast him, and a few names have surfaced as contenders for the gig. The Wrap reports that buzzworthy rising star Nat Wolff ("Paper Towns," "The Fault In Our Stars"), Asa Butterfield ("Hugo," "Ender's Game"), Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," "In The Heart Of The Sea"), Timothee Chalamet ("Interstellar," "The Adderall Diaries") and Liam James ("The Killing") are in the running. It's certainly not the most diverse selection of players, and we guess those previous assertions by the trade that Spider-Man "would not be white" didn't pan out. That being said, there's still some time for this to play out as the new Peter Parker isn't expected to have to be on set for 'Civil War' until »

Is This The Shortlist Of Actors To Play Spider-Man?

23 April 2015 1:24 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

As we all know, Spider-Man will be swinging into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with next years Captain America: Civil War, so with little over a year to go, the hunt is on for a new actor to pull on the iconic red and blue suit. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has previously said that the Peter Parker this time round will be a lot younger than previous incarnations, with this new take keeping the character in high-school, and now The Wrap reportedly have gotten their hands on a possible short list, consisting of Natt Wolf (The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar), Liam James (The Way, Way Back) And Tom Holland (The Impossible). They all range in the age of eighteen to twenty, so they're in the right age bracket, and they certainly all have the Parker look. This line of casting does follow »

Spider-Man: the shortlist to play the role

22 April 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Five candidates have been revealed to take over the role of Spider-Man from Andrew Garfield...

We're edging ever closer to learning who the new big screen Spider-Man is going to be, ahead of the character joining the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War (which he's almost certain to do).

There's been no shortage of clues so far, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirming that the studio is looking for a teenager this time around. He's also revealed that it won't be an origin story we get when Spider-Man appears in his next standalone film, in 2017.

The Wrap now reckons that it has Sony and Marvel's shortlist of five actors for the role. And here are the apparent candidates to be the new Spider-Man.

Firstly, there's Asa Butterfield, best known for his work in Hugo and Ender's Game. Then there's Interstellar's Timothee Chalamet, The Way Way Back's Liam James, »

Asa Butterfield Dramedy Formerly Known as 'X+Y' Lands at Samuel Goldwyn

13 April 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Asa Butterfield broke out big in "Hugo" and "Ender's Game" and now establishes himself as a bright star to watch in "A Brilliant Young Mind," Morgan Matthews' drama formerly known as "X+Y" at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival. Samuel Goldwyn plans a Summer 2015 release. Butterfield plays Nathan, a teen math prodigy on the autistic spectrum opposite Sally Hawkins (Oscar-nominated for "Blue Jasmine" and should-have-been-Oscar-nominated for "Happy-Go-Lucky") as his mother and Rafe Spall as his unconventional teacher who primes him for the International Mathematics Olympiad in Taiwan, where Nathan meets the beautiful Zhang Mei (Jo Yang). It sounds cheesy, but the film, inspired by Matthews' 2007 documentary "Beautiful Young Minds," was adored by all in Toronto, with a whopping 100% on the Tomatometer. "Matthews' debut fiction feature... proves potent on its own terms as a satisfying, compelling drama with definite »
