There was a time when Sony’s Spider-man franchise was the most bankable comic book property in Hollywood. However, that (unfortunately) seems like a very long time ago now, with films like The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier sweeping up the box office a regular basis.
It appeared as if Marvel Studios had all-but-eliminated their competition until this years X-men: Days Of Future Past became a huge critical and financial success. The Amazing Spider-man 2 however, failed to impress audiences or critics and ended up as the lowest grossing entry in the franchise. Many blamed the poor reception of the latest web-spinning adventure on Sony’s effort to establish a cinematic universe (by using multiple antagonists once again), which resulted in an overly bloated script with little room for character development. With interest in the series clearly waning with each successive instalment, Sony clearly need to re-think their »

It has taken quite a while, but over time science fiction has become one of the most respected genres in movie history. Of course this has not been an easy journey and there has been more than one pitfall along the way (cough cough…Batman And Robin). However, there have been many films, directors, stars and characters that have paved the way for the golden age of Hollywood blockbusters that we currently live in.
To celebrate the release (and already-enormous success) of Transformers: Age Of Extinction, we will be counting down some of the greatest allies Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots have to thank for their box office victories. Yes, I am of course referring to their bionic brethren that have weaved a legacy throughout cinematic history in some of the most brilliant (and in some cases underrated) science fiction films of all time. Although the classic »

Sony's decision to knock The Amazing Spider-Man 3 back to 2018 does not mean it's rebooting the series, it's been confirmed...
Yesterday's announcement from Sony that it's delaying The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years to 2018, slotting Sinister Six in 2016 instead, has led to some speculation that it's planning another reboot of sorts of the series. As it turns out, that's not likely to be the case.
The Hollywood Reporter has a piece which declares that "privately, Sony admits it is seeking to refresh the brand, but has no major overhaul plans". Director Marc Webb remains attached too, and is expected to complete his trilogy of Spider-Man movies.
Yet there's clearly a problem, with a Sony source apparently saying that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 "fell $100m below internal predictions" when its box office takings topped out just north of $700m.
That said, it's been noted that competition was tougher than expected, »
Earlier today, Sony Pictures did what many were expecting them to do for months, shift The Amazing Spider-Man 3 into an undetermined 2018 release date slot, while moving The Sinister Six into 2016. Many wondered if this move suggested the studio was planning to scrap The Amazing Spider-Man 3 altogether, and reboot the franchise once again. However, at story from The Hollywood Reporter claims that, while the studio does want to "freshen" the brand, a reboot is not in play, with Marc Webb returning to complete his trilogy with The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
"Privately, Sony admits it is seeking to freshen the brand but has no major overhaul plans, with Webb expected to return to complete the trilogy (as Sam Raimi did with the first three films)."
Oh Oh! Spidey fans are going to have to hang onto their webslingers for just a bit longer as Sony have announced a pretty big delay with The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Orginally, the movie was pencilled in for a June 10th 2016 release date, but now it’s been put nearly two whole years. The new release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is now May 4th 2018. No word on why there is a delay, it hadn’t even started shooting but it’s an interesting move none the less, but one that will anger and bewilder Spidey fans. This delay sound even more bizarre when you consider that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 raked in $706 Million worldwide. Personally, I loved the last movie, it was a refreshing change from the dark and grim look of Marc Webb’s first outing with Peter Parker. So if you had booked a day off »

The Amazing Spider-Man spin-off film Sinister Six has been given a release date.
Columbia Pictures announced during San Diego Comic-Con that the movie will be released on November 11, 2016.
Sinister Six will focus on the six super villains from the Marvel universe, and be directed by Drew Goddard.
It has also been announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be released in 2018.
"There is the idea that other movies are going to emerge from this universe, like the Sinister Six and Venom," he explained, "and we wanted to acknowledge and build a foundation for that."

The great Spider-Man experiment continues! Sony isn't going to go down swinging in regards to the under-performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Nope, they're reloading and diversifying, re-writing their entire release schedule to spotlight The Sinister Six. Thank you for reading CinemaBlend, Sony. Your gift bag is in the mail. Via Deadline, Sony has announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has fled 2016, giving way to The Sinister Six, which will bow on November 11th, 2016. Following the villain team-up, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will debut in 2018 . no date is specified, though it will probably occupy the May 4th, 2018 slot reserved for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which will... vanish out of thin air, apparently. Clearly, Sony's original wishes for a Spider-Man movie every year will not come to fruition. What this means is that, with Sinister Six taking the place of a Spider-Man movie, it's likely going to Become a Spider-Man movie, with »
Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to 2018, the year The Amazing Spider-Man 4 was previously expected to hit theaters. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems »

After a lot of speculation about the fate of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and if it is being delayed, the studio has officially announced release dates for the next two chapters in this continuing saga. The Sinister Six will arrive first, debuting on November 11, 2016. This will be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 sometime in 2018.
Drew Goddard will write and direct The Sinister Six, pushing the franchise in a new direction after The Amazing Spider-Man 2's release this past summer. It will team-up a number of villains from the Marvel Comics, and expand the story that is already in play.

Looking to broaden its Spider-Man franchise, Sony has dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018.
After modest box office results for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the studio thinks “Sinister Six” will expand the Spider-Man universe by bringing in villains, making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and WB’s Justice League superheroes in the coming years.
The studio has also slated “Uncharted” for June 10, 2016 — which had previously been the release schedule previously held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
Sony made the announcements Wednesday on the opening day of Comic-Con. The studio first revealed the “Sinister Six” and “Venom” spinoff projects in December, »

Two Sony superhero projects that seemed to be very much in doubt over the past few months (ever since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to match expectations at the box office) are now back on the map in a major way. Sony has just announced firm release dates for both the villain spinoff The Sinister Six and The Amazing Spider-Man 3. It’s not all confetti though, since this means The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be pushed one year beyond the already rumored release date shift to 2017. All of this means that The Sinister Six release date will be November 11th, 2016 while The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has to wait all the way until May 4th, 2018. That last date might not be such a bad thing, as it gives Sony and director Marc Webb (if he stays attached) more time to course correct a franchise that has been sinking at an alarming rate. »

Looks like slightly underwhleming box office returns for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 weren’t enough to kill Sony’s plans to build an expansive superhero universe. The studio has dated The Sinister Six, a movie that features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, for release on November 11th, 2016. As part of the new release date, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been bumped from its June 10th, 2016 slot by two years to May 4th, 2018.
Drew Goddard apparently delivered a take on the Sinister Six project that greatly excited execs at Sony. The Cabin in the Woods helmer is set to write and direct the spinoff, which currently has “a rough script.” Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group’s Doug Belgrad said:
“With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016.”
It’s still unknown which villains will feature into »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a younger A-lister, though one who’s been continually increasing her profile for a number of years now. It’s Emma Stone, one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. She’s basically been on a rocket to the top, with no signs of slowing down. Stone not only has the goods as an actress, she’s got the charisma and personality to match. That’s the kind of combination that allows a star to go far. She’s an A-lister through and through, but one still very much on the upswing of her career. She’s still got plenty more to do, including I suspect…win an Oscar. Stone is an actress who can shine in just about any role. She got her start with a clever supporting performance in Superbad, the type of performance she’d »

Given that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the lowest-grossing Spidey movie ever and, quite frankly, a critical flop, there has been much uncertainy about where Sony Pictures will take the franchise and its previously-announced villain spin-off movies. Now ahead of this week's San Diego Comi-Con, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the studio has scheduled to first release The Sinister Six on November 11, 2016, and will eventually release The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018. The third and fourth sequels to Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man were initally set for release on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018, but Sony is apparently happy with The Sinister Six writer/director Drew Goddard's rough script and ultimately what he has planned for the supervillain team-up movie, which The Amazing Spider-Man 2 notably spent precious screen-time trying to establish. What do you think? "With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the »
Watch out Avengers, X-Men and Justice League. Sony is entering the fray with its own comic book superteam.

Ever since The Amazing Spider-man 2 failed to match expectation at the box office (it’s currently the lowest grossing of all the Spider-Man movies) there has been a lot of chatter about director Drew Goddard’s The Sinister Six and another Amazing Spider-man 3 sequel and whether or not they would see the light of day. Well, have no fear, we have movies for years! Sony has just announced firm release dates for both the villain spinoff The Sinister Six and The Amazing »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is one of the year’s biggest releases and arrives in less than five months, yet actually information is very thin on the ground. Peter Jackson doesn’t really need to do much to promote the film beyond simply announce its existence, but you’d expect by now we’d have more than a couple of screenshots and the odd snippet from interviews.
A (apparently very short) teaser is rumoured to be imminent but Jackson has said (due to the time it’s taking for Weta Digital to finish off the visual effects) we won’t get the full trailer until October. October?! That’s, like, two months before release. The spoilerphobe side of us kinda hopes this sets a precedent in more toned back advertising (we really don’t need another case akin to Prometheus or »

We should have seen it coming. The questioning of Anne Hathaway’s casting as Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises may not have reached the heights of Batfleck, but there were certainly people out there who questioned whether Princess Mia really was the perfect person to play Batman’s femme fatale thief. But, just as with 10 Things I Hate About You’s Heath Ledger and his appointment as Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime, we needn’t have worried. Director Christopher Nolan knew exactly what he was doing.
Hathaway’s Selina Kyle proved to be one the best things about Nolan’s trilogy ender, at all times both smart and seductive, desirable and deadly. Some may have baulked at her role in (spoiler, if you haven’t seen this two year old movie) Bane’s death and that she (second spoiler) ultimately ran off to live the quiet life with Bruce Wayne, »

Twenty years ago, if someone said that ‘zombie romantic comedy’ was going to become an actual cinematic sub-genre, they’d have been called a witch and burned at the stake. And yet, they would have been right, and Fantasia 2014 has seen the unveiling of yet another film in the rapidly expanding genre, Life After Beth. Starring Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation and Dane DeHaan, recently of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Life After Beth is best described as a zombie breakup comedy. It’s also best described as “decent, but not amazing”, a serviceable enough zom-rom-com kept afloat mostly by the supporting cast.
DeHaan stars as Zach, a teenager whose longtime girlfriend, Beth (Plaza), dies and comes back to life several days later. But before Zach’s eyes, as well as Beth’s parents played by John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon, »
