Netflix didn’t disclose the identity of their characters at this time, only that Clarkson and Scott will portray major players that walk Washington’s corridors of power. As for the rest of the cast, Kevin Spacey is back as power-mongering Potus Frank Underwood, who will be fending off adversaries old and new alongside Claire (Robin Wright). Due to his commitment to Marvel’s Luke Cage, Mahershala Ali has expressed some doubt about the possibility of reprising as stoic lobbyist Remy Danton, though we’ll be keeping an eye on that one as we approach season 5’s premiere.
Meanwhile, today’s casting coup heralds Clarkson’s first foray onto the small-screen in some time – a guest role on HBO’s Six Feet Under notwithstanding – and the actress is »

A Cure for Wellness delivers a twisted and horrifying first trailerA Cure for Wellness delivers a twisted and horrifying first trailerGarrett McCormick10/20/2016 3:23:00 Pm
Dark, twisted, thrilling, intriguing, and scary are just a few words that sum up the new trailer for A Cure for Wellness!
A young executive is sent to a mysterious and questionable wellness center to get his company’s CEO. After spending more time at the “wellness” center, he discovers the treatments are not what they seem and the longer he stays the more he starts to question his own sanity. By the looks of the trailer, this is going to be one dramatic, horrifying and insane film!
The film stars Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), with Gore Verbinski who directed the horror classic The Ring returning to the director’s chair for another twisted thriller.

MaryAnn’s quick take…
Completely absurd, ultimately pointless, but also gloriously goofy: a Nancy Drew mystery with Scooby-Doo overtones and a thin veneer of bookishness. I’m “biast” (pro): really liked the previous Robert Langdon movie, Angels & Demons…
I’m “biast” (con): …but really hated the first one, The Da Vinci Code
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
See, there’s this tech billionaire name of Bertrand Zobrist (Ben Foster: Warcraft, Hell or High Water), and instead of funding the eradication of all disease like Mark Zuckerberg or making serious plans to get humans to Mars like Elon Musk, he spends his power and money on developing »

Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy was killed off in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but rumours (and some Sony Hack emails) pointed to the character returning in the then dated third instalment of the franchise. That movie was going to bring back a few of Peter's loved ones, though there was also talk of this version of Gwen becoming Carnage, because hey, Sony Pictues just does whatever they want I guess. Since then, that series of movies was scrapped and Peter Parker has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it's fair to say that Stone's new photoshoot for Vogue (via Movie Hotties) will definitely make you miss The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. The beautiful actress is doing find without Spidey though as she's been receiving rave reviews - and some Oscar buzz - for musical La La Land. »

Plans remain afoot for Spider-Man spin-off movies, Sony Pictures' boss confirms...
Come the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and the film had put into place (not with a great deal of subtlety) some basic foundations for a series of spin-off movies. Sony was planning films centred on the Sinister Six and Venom for a start, but when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn’t do the expected level of business, everything was put on hold.
Now, with filming done on the new Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland (that’d be Spider-Man: Homecoming), Collider has been chatting to Sony Pictures boss Tom Rothman. And he’s confirmed that an assortment of Spider-Man spin-off films are still on the way.
“We’re working on a lot of that stuff”, he said. “There’s a concerted effort, so I think there will be real news as opposed to speculated news »
The last time Jamie Foxx got into action mode it was as an electric Smurf in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now it looks like he’s made a potentially better choice to get back into tough guy mode with a new action thriller called Sleepless. This one appears to be full of double crossing since it […]

Kim Nguyen says he has a love/hate relationship with cold weather.
But he didn’t get cold feet when it came to shooting Two Lovers and a Bear in Iqaluit, even though temperatures could get as low as -50.
“We felt like we were shooting a sequel to Mad Max, we were all driving snowmobiles and wearing gigantic fur coats,” the Canadian filmmaker says with a laugh over the phone from his Montreal home.
The film, Nguyen’s fifth feature, has already screened at Cannes and the Toronto International Film Festival and opens across the country this month. His last feature film, War Witch, set a high bar by being nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2013 Academy Awards. »

In 2014, actor Jamie Foxx appeared in five separate films: “Rio 2,” “”The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” “Horrible Bosses 2,” and “Annie.” Fox has not appeared in a film since but has instead released his fifth R&B album “Hollywood: A Story of Dozen Roses,” and provided the voice of Jackie Robinson in the Ken Burns’ documentary on the baseball legend released earlier this year. But soon, Foxx will return to the big screen in “Sleepless,” an action thriller about a police detective forced to recover his son after he’s been violently kidnapped. Watch a trailer for the film below, courtesy of AMC Theatres.
A remake of the French film “Nuit Blanche,” “Sleepless” follows the exploits of Vincent Downs (Foxx), an undercover »

After three years of snubs & misses, The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences finally got it right this season and awarded the über-talented Tatiana Maslany with her first Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. The beloved Orphan Black star recently sat down with Fashion Magazine to chat about a handful of topics, including two of her upcoming film roles: Lucy in Two Lovers and a Bear, where she stars alongside Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), and then Erin Hurley in the David Gordon Green-directed Boston Marathon movie Stronger, where she'll be seen opposite Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals). She also detailed her process behind getting into her various different clone characters and described the first time she ever attempted to become Helena: “When I first saw myself dressed as Helena in the mirror—I had these red eyes and I was wearing a »
Earlier this morning, I reported that DC's Justice League had just wrapped principal photography, and now I get to report similar news on the Marvel front. Tom Holland, star of Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, has announced that filming has wrapped for the exciting new Spidey reboot.

The release is the first collection of episodes available on DVD, and it’s not only a good selection because these are episodes that focus on the individual members of the Guard, but because these are some of the series’ most rewatchable efforts.
The show is not just a fun adventure for kids, but the series takes on a broad range within its episodic content, tackling some tricky issues, without actually decoding its own efforts and bogging down in overt explanation.
For example, the episode Fuli’s New Family spans a variety of issues, but chief among them is an examination of the idea that just because doing something seems objectively “right,” or, “how friends act, »

Latest Thanos Update! He’s still sitting down.
Don’t give me that look…
If Latino Review are to be believed (a lot of their scoops amount to nothing), the story details described will probably come out in the film’s first trailer. Or maybe even before in a plot synopsis, so I’m not »

The Russo Brothers have begun rehearsels, and are expected to commence shooting Avengers: Infinity War very soon - but it's still going to be quite a while before we see anything official from the latest assembly of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. With that in mind, the guys over at We Got This Covered have put together this pretty damn awesome trailer, featuring footage from several previous Marvel flicks, and a few shots from the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Ang Lee's Hulk for good measure. Avengers: Infinity War is set for release on May 4, 2018, while its follow-up scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019. »
Joe and Anthony Russo are expected to commence production on Avengers: Infinity War in October, and although we may get a few sneaky set snaps (the duo have already provided fans with a Josh Brolin rehearsal pic) finding their way online in the coming months, it’s probably going to be quite a while before we’re treated to any official footage. Fortunately, we do have a very impressive fan-made trailer to keep you going in the interim.
The trailer near-flawlessly edits together footage from several Marvel movies, and even includes the occasional shot from the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Ang Lee’s Hulk. Infinity War will feature Thanos as the big bad, but because we haven’t seen a whole lot of the big fella in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, he’s obviously used sparingly here, with the main focus instead being placed on »

Todd McFarlane has been talking about rebooting Spawn for the big screen since as far back as 2009. At one time he was touting the attachment of an Oscar-winning actor who kept bugging him about the script, and eventually it was determined that actor was probably Jamie Foxx. At the time, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 […]

Though it received some rather dreadful reviews and some pretty bad publicity following its release, Suicide Squad has earned another notch on its box office belt this weekend.
Gorssing another $4 million from this weekend, Suicide Squad has now passed both Captain America: The Winter Solider ($714 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($708 million) at the global box office. The bad-guy-team-up now sits at $718 million worldwide.
Suicide Squad is now the fifteenth biggest comic book movie of all-time, sitting behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man, Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy. Its DC Extended Universe cohort Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sits on $873 million.
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. »

Flashbacks, prequels and spin-offs - are all these things taking the sense of mystery out of movies? Ryan fears they might be.
“Apparently, she saw an alien once...”
The really effective thing about the Alien movies - particularly the first two - is their sense of mystery. Just as Ridley Scott and James Cameron’s films are united by their intense use of shadow, meaning the title creatures are glimpsed only in part, so Alien and Aliens suggest huge chunks of back-story with a throwaway line or a solitary scene.
Looking again at the 1979 original, it’s evident how pared back its plot is, especially compared to 2016’s crop of summer films. The assorted tensions and histories of Alien’s central characters are hinted at but never expressly shown, meaning we’re allowed to fill in the blanks ourselves. We don’t need acres of exposition to »
Shhhh. Listen closely and you can hear them. They’re sitting in a dark room, hiding behind their keyboards spewing racist bile claiming it’s all about “respecting” the source material. That’s what the angry do nowadays. It seems with every hint of a possible race-bending announcement a small section of the internet shout as loud as they can to make sure the world knows how wrong they think the decision is.
The latest target is Zendaya, the female lead of the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. When she was first cast in March it was reported she was playing a character named ‘Michelle’ but aware of studio secrecy tactics — looking at you Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams — it was assumed ‘Michelle’ was a ruse. Connecting the dots and the fact both names start with the letter ‘M »

The BFI has announced the recipients of its 2016-18 Vision Awards, comprising 22 investments in up-and-coming UK producers.
The awards, generally spread over two years, are designed to enable producers to build and develop their companies, slates and creative relationships.
