Spider-man Finalists Reportedly Down to Tom Holland and Asa Butterfield

1 May 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

And then there were two. While I expected a prolonged series of shortlist leaks and speculative reports, it appears that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures may have already narrowed down their list of contenders to play the new Spider-Man. The first shortlist story that arrived listed Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars), Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game), Tom Holland (The Impossible), Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar), and Liam James (The Way Way Back) as being among the candidates set to test for the role. Then a few days ago, a rumor surfaced that 18-year-old Butterfield is the frontrunner to play Peter Parker in the MCU and his own standalone movie via Sony. Now Devin from Badass Digest says he’s heard that Marvel and Sony (the latter has final say over casting) have zeroed in on Butterfield and Holland as the final two contenders to land the gig.

Spider-Man Shortlist Includes Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield And More

22 April 2015 5:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wrap is reporting tonight that a shortlist of actors to play the new Spider-Man has emerged and as was reported earlier, it contains five names. The young men said to be in contention for the role are: Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James. Neither Sony or Disney were prepared to comment on the list, but The Wrap is confident in their source.

While filming on Captain America: Civil War (which will feature a cameo from the webslinger) is set to get underway shortly, it still may be a while until we find out who exactly will be stepping into the iconic role. Apparently, Spidey’s scene won’t be shot until June, so whichever actor ends up snagging the part won’t be needed for at least a few more months.

However, Sony is getting ready to “make test offers” to the young men »

Arrested Development, which producer Brian Grazer confirmed would be returning

Netflix’s upcoming series The Get Down has cast its four lead roles. The hip hop drama, set in New York in the 70s, has tapped Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Skylan Brooks, and Tremain Brown Jr. to star in the series. Moore, who will soon be seen on the big screen in the Sundance feature Dope, will be playing Shaolin Fantastic, while Smith, who is in this summer’s Paper Towns, will play Ezekiel. Brown Jr. will make his acting debut on the series by playing Boo-Boo, while Brooks, who was one of the two leads in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, will play Ra-Ra.

Netflix describes The Get Down thusly.

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are »

‘Black Sea’ Interview with Director Kevin Macdonald

30 January 2015 3:52 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Director Kevin Macdonald’s Black Sea an is a sturdy old-fashioned thriller, an adventure and treasure hunt set within the confines of a submarine. its captain is played by a burly Jude Law, who leads a group of ruffians down to the bottom of the Black Sea to find a sunken Nazi sub that is rumored to have tons and tons of gold on board. With the drama of the film ratcheted up with crew tension and water conditions, Macdonald’s film is a tense throwback, albeit a parable about the 99% helping each other since they’re on the same boat.

Macdonald previously directed films like How I Live Now, The Last King of Scotland, The Eagle, and Touching the Void. He was also the filmmaker chosen to compile a worldwide stack of footage for the documentary endeavor Life in a Day.

'Black Sea' (2015) Movie Review

28 January 2015 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Scottish director Kevin Macdonald found some early success and notoriety with his first narrative feature The Last King of Scotland, which ended up earning Forest Whittaker an Oscar. Since then films such as State of Play and The Eagle haven't played so well, though his 2013 feature, How I Live Now, managed to turn some heads, even if it wasn't released on a very wide basis. Known at the beginning of his career as a documentary filmmaker, he's continued on that track here and there, most recently with Marley, but now he comes to the table with his latest fictional feature, a submarine thriller titled Black Sea starring Jude Law as a submarine captain in search of lost Nazi gold. While Black Sea has something of an Indiana Jones-sounding plotline, it's far more serious than that. To go along with the search for sunken gold off the coast of Georgia, there's »

Lower Depths: MacDonald’s Latest a Tense Deep Sea Treasure Hunt

While it’s being treated to a December release in his native UK, director Kevin MacDonald’s latest feature film, Black Sea, gets plopped into Us theaters in January, perhaps signaling a wise move so that it will stand out amidst the litter of debris that constitutes the vein of awards fodder holdovers and studio doldrums flooding the theaters during that season. Fresh from his enjoyable dip into Ya dystopia with How I Live Now, MacDonald returns to a tale bearing a bit more historical baggage, spiriting us away into a homosocial space of mounting tensions and rival cultural attitudes. A likeable lead performance from Jude Law plus a handful of nervy twists and turns helps its claustrophobic narrative chug along to a finale of limited possibilities.

Being informed he’s about to be laid off by his employer, »

Review: Watchable But Forgettable 'Black Sea' Starring Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn & Scoot McNairy

20 January 2015 4:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Take a bunch of grizzled character actors and stick them in a metal tube under the ocean, add some depth charges and torpedoes and the like, and drama is bound to result. From "The Enemy Below" and "Run Silent, Run Deep" to "The Hunt For Red October" and "Crimson Tide" by way of "Das Boot," the submarine thriller sub-genre has been a popular one for decades. But in recent years, it has run aground, without a major new film in the genre since Kathryn Bigelow's misfire "K-19: The Widowmaker" over a decade ago. Kevin Macdonald is hoping to change that. The Oscar-winning documentarian-turned-features-director is coming off a few disappointments ("State Of Play," "The Eagle," "Marley"), plus his last film "How I Live Now," which was pretty good, but which literally no one saw. Now he's heading under the waves for "Black Sea," a below-the-water thriller that hopes to reinvigorate. »

'Black Sea' Behind the Submarine Featurette with Jude Law

20 January 2015 9:21 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hailed by critics as the best underwater thriller of 2015, Black Sea is finally in select theaters this Friday. Focus Features takes fans behind-the-scenes with star Jude Law in two new featurettes. We get an in-depth look at his character, the story behind this deep sea adventure, and a tour of the real submarine that rests at the heart of this edge-of-your-seat tale.

Directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald (How I Live Now), Black Sea centers on a rogue submarine captain (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.

Hold your breath and dive deep, this is going to be an exciting ride! »

‘Black Sea’ Review: Jude Law’s Submarine Salvage Thriller Rises to the Occasion

15 January 2015 12:21 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Claustrophobic, tense and playing out as a global economy variation on “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre” set in the cold, crushing depths of the ocean, director Kevin MacDonald‘s “Black Sea” will have any thrillseekers in the theater clutching their armrest and shivering with imagined terrors.

Jude Law, with a short growth of stubble and a low growl of an accent, stars as Robinson, a Navy veteran who, in his first scene, is being fired after over a decade with a shipping company. Drinks with other similarly-discharged old coworkers lead to a discussion of rumors, legends and tales about a sunken German U-Boat, »

9 January 2015 4:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Latino Review is reporting tonight that casting for X-Men: Apocalypse is well underway and a number of hot young actors are up for sizeable roles. We had heard previously that Chloe Grace Moretz was wanted for the younger version of Jean Grey, but apparently, scheduling issues have forced her to pass. Now, director Bryan Singer is testing Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner as well as Saoirse Ronan, who’s seen a lot of success in recent years with films like How I Live NowHanna and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Further casting news indicates that Singer is looking at Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Edgerton for young Cyclops, with If I Stay‘s Jamie Blackley and Mud‘s Tye Sheridan both testing as well. Apparently, Sheridan is the frontrunner at this time but currently, no one has signed the dotted line. That being said, Edgerton likely has future »
