Sony Pictures' highly-anticipated Venom movie has a cast that keeps growing and growing, with Veep star Reid Scott entering negotiations for an unspecified role. It's possible that his character may have roots in the Marvel Comics, or that he could also be a brand new character created for this spin-off, but those details have not yet been made available. We reported last month that Venom production was delayed, with filming reportedly beginning on October 23 in both Atlanta and New York City. With the cast coming together the way it is, it's possible that filming may begin very soon.
Regardless of who he's playing, Reid Scott joins a cast that includes Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a.k.a. Venom, Riz Ahmed, rumored to be playing the primary villain Carnage, Michelle Williams, rumored to be playing Ann Weying, a.k.a. She-Venom, a lawyer and ex-wife to Eddie Brock. We »

After Felicity Jones gave franchises another try with last year’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (don’t forget about her tiny role in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2“), the actress is back in the world of prestige dramas, and hoping to earn another Oscar nomination with “On The Basis Of Sex” by taking on the role of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Directed by Mimi Leder (“The Leftovers“), with an ensemble cast that includes Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Kathy Bates, Sam Waterston, Jack Reynor, Stephen Root, and Cailee Spaeny, the film will track the young life of the future Supreme Court justice, and the case that made her name.

The Terminator series is making its third attempt at a trilogy. But would it be better as a one-off story, Ryan wonders...
Nb: The following contains spoilers for all the Terminator films released so far.

Genisys probably seemed like a good idea at the time. After the so-so critical and financial performance of Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, the fifth entry in the series would, as far as its producers were concerned, take the saga back to its glory days: the nightmarish chases of The Terminator and the eye-popping special effects of T2, widely regarded as the franchise's high-water mark. »

“My Pure Land” tells the true story of a mother and her two daughters in rural Pakistan who were forced to defend their land from a militia of 200 bandits. Its submission marks the first time an Urdu-language film has been Britain’s selection for the foreign-language Oscar.
“My Pure Land” was shot in Pakistan in difficult conditions. The movie’s production company, Bill Kenwright Films, said the crew had to negotiate their way through heavily armed civilian regions. The production banner described the film as “a violent contemporary Western but grounded in realism and crucially with a feminist theme.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming is off to a historic start in China.
The once high-stakes Sony-Marvel reboot swung to a stunning $70.8 million opening weekend — the Middle Kingdom's third-best superhero debut ever.
Homecoming, which stars Tom Holland as the third Peter Parker/Spider-Man, not only opened at the top of the franchise, it's also already beaten the entire China totals of every other Spidey film save The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which eventually reached $94.4 million in 2014 — a high mark that Homecoming will cleanly clear later this week.
The film performed predictably well on Imax, earning $6 million from 442 screens and notching »

After a two-month delay from its North American debut, Spider-Man: Homecoming finally sprung into China on Friday, chalking up a healthy $23 million on opening day, including about $1 million in Thursday night previews.
The critically acclaimed Sony and Marvel Studios' tentpole accounted for approximately 52 percent of all showings for the day. The debut puts the reboot on track for $60 million-plus opening weekend, which would be better than the entire China totals of all but the most recent Spidey movie — The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earned $94.4 million in the Middle Kingdom in 2014.

Comic book movies have delivered some amazing plot twists over the decades. There have been surprising villain switcheroos (e.g. Iron Man, Batman Begins, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), shocking deaths (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Dark Knight, Logan) and revelations that turn the hero’s story on its head (Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). All of these examples proved to enhance the story and lift the films up to another level in some way.
Unfortunately though, for every successful plot twist we get, there’s one that just plain stinks. A lot of the time these twists sounded like good ideas on paper but somewhere along the line they were poorly handled. Other times, the ideas were rotten from the beginning and you have to wonder what the filmmakers were thinking when they thought viewers would lap it up. Either way, these awful twists ended up »

Despite the fact that Sony has decided to confound us all by building a cinematic universe of their own comprised of Spider-Man’s supporting characters that doesn’t seem to actually be inhabited by the icon himself, it’s very hard not to look forward to a movie starring Black Cat and Silver Sable, even if it could use a better title than Silver & Black. Well, the film is bound to have more than a few detractors, regardless, but you can’t help being the slightest bit curious.
Still, the studio continues to give us cause for concern by seemingly shoehorning as many characters as possible into the movie. Now, a few of them make some sense as it allows for some cross-pollination with Venom, but in order for this thing to truly thrive, it’s best it not become too bloated. Well, that is unless the filmmakers know how »

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That is a rule that Marvel Studios is pretty great at applying to their movies and they are going to help Sony apply it to Spider-Man: Homecoming 2. The studios worked together on this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has been a huge success, and they are going to bring back some key members of the creative team in order to try and recapture that magic. Writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are going to come back for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the duo of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are in final negotiations to pen the Spider-Man: Homecming sequel for Sony and Marvel. The second solo Spider-Man movie in the McU has already been given a July 5, 2019, release date, so there is a little pressure to get the ball rolling on development for the sequel. The studios are »
Marc Webb‘s career has certainly taken some interesting turns. After breaking out with “(500) Days Of Summer,” the filmmaker leaped to the blockbuster world with “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The results weren’t so hot, the franchise was rebooted with this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and Webb returned to the indie world knocking out “Gifted” (which quietly earned an impressive $37 million worldwide off a $7 million budget) and “The Only Living Boy In New York” (which received terrible reviews, and even worse box office).

"..."in 'Silver and Bold', part 1, after faking her own death, 'Silver Sable' is back in the mercenary game, and this time she might not survive.

The consensus among fans of Stephen King's epic fantasy novels seems to be that the long-gestating film adaptation of The Dark Tower has forgotten the face of its father. This isn't going to be one of those reviews, as it comes from a Dark Tower newbie who has yet to read the books, but judging it on its merits as a film, it's not a whole lot better than that.
As adaptations go, it's come out of long spells of development by Jj Abrams and Ron Howard with a killer idea – it's billed as a continuation of the series, in which its events take place over again at some point after the final book. You'd expect that this approach will offer a new story for the experts and a jumping-on point for the newbies, »
Friday AM Update: The Hitman's Bodyguard did a solid $1.65 million from preview screenings last night, which took place at ~2,600 locations beginning at 7 PM.
This compares favorably to War Dogs, which brought in $1.25 million from preview screenings at 2,800 locations before opening with $14.6 million. It's also an improvement on 2013's 2 Guns, which brought in $1.28 million from preview screenings and opened with $27 million. It's also just a shade below the preview grosses for Valerian ($1.7M) and Ghost in the Shell ($1.8M), which opened with $17 million and $18.6 million respectively.
As far as R-rated films are concerned, however, this is a very solid showing as no R-rated film has opened with less than $16.5 million after bringing in more than $1.5 million in Thursday night previews, the lowest of the bunch being Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates which brought in $1.6 million from previews and opened with $16.6 million last July.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has failed to come out on top during its opening weekend in Japan.
Japan might not have the market power of China in the box office world, but it’s still an important location for Hollywood’s biggest films to do well in.
Homecoming may have debuted number one by box office takings, bringing in $4.1 million to Despicable Me 3‘s $3.7 million, but Japan ranks its box office by admissions, not money earned.
Debuting last weekend, Homecoming had 290,000 admissions which is below Despicable Me’s 328,000. And considering Despicable Me 3 is in its fourth weekend, this isn’t the result Spider-Man would have hoped for.
This was, however, 7% better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which finished its Japanese run with $28.7 million (not accounting for »
