New Spider-Man: Homecoming Villain and Captain America Connection Revealed

19 August 2016 11:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During an interview at Comic-Con, Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts confirmed four character names. The filmmaker revealed that Tony Revolori is playing Flash, presumably Flash Thompson, with female lead Zendaya playing a character named Michelle, rumored to be Michelle Garcia, Laura Harrier as Liz, believed to be Liz Allan and Jacob Batalon as Ned, rumored to be Ned Leeds. Unfortunately, aside from those characters, and Tom Holland's Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei's Aunt May and Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark/Iron Man, we don't know any of the other characters, but now a full cast list with all of the characters has been leaked. There may be potential Spoilers so read on at your own risk.

The cast list first surfaced on the Twitter account dubbed Atlanta Filming, but it was quickly removed, although it has surfaced in various other places since then. Of course, we don't know »

Nate Parker: Why He’s Speaking Out Against 1999 Rape Accusations Before ‘Birth of a Nation’ Awards Cycle

12 August 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nate Parker’s Cinderella story took a decidedly darker turn Friday morning with a Deadline piece in which the filmmaker behind “The Birth of a Nation” gave an extended interview acknowledging his role in a 1999 rape charge, when he was a student at Penn State. 

You can read the details here, but the upshot is he and “The Birth of a Nation” co-writer Jean McGianni Celestin had sex with a fellow student — an incident that, they said, was consensual; she says she was passed-out drunk and unable to give consent. The case went to trial, and Parker was acquitted while Celestin’s conviction was overturned on appeal.

This comes the morning after Parker received the Vanguard Award at the Sundance Institute’s Night Before Next benefit, where he also announced the Institute’s launch of The Birth of a Nation Fellowship for 18-to-24-year-old filmmakers who participate in the Institute’s Ignite program. »

Marvel Comics Turns Donald Trump Into a Spider-Gwen Villain

2 July 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Both Marvel and DC Comics are having a blast right now, making headlines left and right with their alternative and progressive take on longstanding heroes and villains. For a short while Captain America became a Hydra agent, Lex Luthor is the new Superman, and Spider-Man and Deadpool have become fly-by-night movie critics ready to slam Batman V Superman at the drop of the hat. Now comes Spider-Gwen Annual #1, which turns real-life presidential candidate Donald Trump into a grotesque super villain.

Spider-Gwen exists in an alternative universe where Gwen Stacy was bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker, and Sam Wilson has been replaced by Samatha Wilson as Captain America. Now, the classic super villain M.O.D.O.K. has gotten an update, and he resembles the real estate mogul turned reality TV star turned Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who arrives with the new name M.O. »

The Outfit

5 June 2016 9:24 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

John Flynn's The Outfit (1974), a brutally efficient bit of business based glancingly on Richard Stark’s procedurally inquisitive and poetic crime novel of the same name, is a movie that feels like it’s never heard of a rounded corner; it’s blunt like a 1970 Dodge Monaco pinning a couple of killers against a Dumpster and a brick wall. I say “glancingly” because the movie,  as Glenn Kenny observed upon The Outfit’s DVD release from the Warner Archives, is based less on the chronologically unconcerned novel than an idea taken from it. On the page Stark's protagonist, the unflappable Parker, his face altered by plastic surgery to the degree that past associates often take a fatal beat too long to realize to whom it is they are speaking, assumes the detached perspective of a bruised deity, undertaking the orchestration of a series of robberies administered to Mob-run businesses »

Marvel May Still Be Making The Sinister Six Movie, Here's Why

22 May 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Truly, ever since it became clear that The Avengers was happening, fans had a lot of hope that Spider-Man would be a part of that world, and with the release of Captain America: Civil War, they finally got their wish. Tom Holland has delivered what very well may be the best on screen Spider-Man we have ever seen and he will be getting a big chance to really shine next year when Spider-Man: Homecoming is released and as the film nears production, we have been slowly learning details about the villains and loose plot details. Though it is very early on, it looks like Marvel Studios may be laying the seeds for something much bigger to come with Spidey's arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that thing could be The Sinister Six.

For those that may not be as familiar with their Spider-Man history, The Sinister Six is essentially »

First Look at Charlize Theron as Cipher in Fast and Furious 8

20 May 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Fast and Furious 8 currently in production, the franchise's social media pages has started a tradition known as #FastFridays, where they offer fans a new sneak peek at this highly-anticipated sequel. Last week, the production shared a new behind-the-scenes video from their shoot in Cuba, featuring stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and many more. #FastFridays continues today, with our first look at one of the new casting additions to the franchise, Oscar winner Charlize Theron as the villain Cipher.

The photo, which was posted to the Fast & Furious Twitter page, reveals that Cipher is a big fan of Metallica, as she's seen wearing a shirt from the heavy metal band. She is also quite well-armed, as this photo also showcases a rack of machine guns. Unfortunately, we don't have many details about the character herself, but hopefully we'll learn more as production continues.

Rumour: Kingpin to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming

20 May 2016 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Have your pinch of salt at the ready, as this one is almost certainly a fabrication, but Screen Geek is claiming that Marvel Studios is considering having an appearance from Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk – a.k.a. Kingpin – in Marvel and Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Now, Kingpin appearing in a Spider-Man movie certainly isn’t beyond the realm of possibility; however, the site goes on to destroy any and all credibility by suggesting that Andrew Garfield could appear in Sony’s Venom movie as a way to hold on to their previous plans to build towards The Sinister Six. Which is just a ludicrous suggestion, to be honest.

Should – and it’s a massive should – there be any truth to this rumour, D’Onofrio’s Kingpin would be the first character from the TV side of the McU to make the jump to the big screen.

Spider-Man: Homecoming to Crossover Daredevil's Kingpin?

19 May 2016 11:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow, both on the cinematic and TV sides of things, but there has been little to no crossover between the two so far, save for Agent Coulson having appeared first in The Avengers and then headlining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, a new rumor is suggesting that the TV universe will be crossing over with the movie universe for the first time. Apparently, Marvel is considering bringing Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin from the Netflix series Daredevil into the first Tom Holland led Peter Parker solo flick, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Screen Geek claims that the information comes from a "source close to the situation" but didn't have anything more specific to say about the rumor. The Netflix Marvel series have been very well received so far, but season one of Daredevil was regarded by fans and critics as one of the best things that Marvel Studios »

Joe Corallo: Darwyn Cooke – A Personal Remembrance

17 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As many of you know Darwyn Cooke, beloved comic book industry icon, passed away Saturday May 14th after a battle with lung cancer. He was 53 years old. I could go into all of the facts, his accomplishments and merits in animation, illustration, and writing, but many of you already know them all or could easily gain access to them on the plethora of websites covering this tragedy. So in lieu of listing off his accomplishments, I’m going to talk about what Darwyn Cooke means to me.

My earliest memories of Darwyn Cooke’s work was from Marvel’s X-Statix. Peter Milligan, Mike and Laura Allred crafted an incredible pop art critique of the direction we were going in our fame obsessed culture using mutants as the metaphor of choice. One of the artists that also worked on this was Darwyn Cooke. My younger brother James was not quite a »

Marvelous DA7E: Between Batman, Superman and Daredevil Season 2

23 March 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I’m pretty sure that no one who reads a column called “Marvelous Da7e” wants to hear opinions about Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice right now. If I liked it, I would respect Zack Snyder’s wishes from a very loud pre-roll that played before my screening, asking me to let fans worldwide experience the movie fresh. If I didn’t like it, no one would believe me because of the current obsession by a small subculture of the internet that critics aren’t fans and have prejudices that make them not worth listening to.

No worries, we’ll have lots of time to discuss this movie after more people get to see it. You know if you’re going to see it or skip it already in your deep heart of hearts and nothing is going to change that (Good for you, I felt the same »

With the Marvel Universe now all in one reality, how does the superhero community differentiate between Miles Morales Spider-Man and Peter Parker Spider-Man? For that matter, with Steve Rogers set to return as Captain America, will Sam Wilson still don the red, white and blue and still go by Cap, as well? On the cover of Civil War #1, we see Spider-Man and Falcon on oppossite sides, with Sam Wilson supporting Iron Man (Protect the Future.) and Peter Parker supporting Captain Marvel (Change the Future.).

Film Industry Divided By Screening Room

17 March 2016 4:20 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The debate over The Screening Room initiative has now reached fever pitch with normally aligned filmmakers and interests splitting into two groups with differing ideals - essentially turning this into "Cinema America: Civil War".

It all began with Sean Parker, the infamous online guru behind Napster and Facebook (and played by Justin Timberlake in David Fincher's "The Social Network") who proposed The Screening Room- an encrypted set-top box with a VOD service allowing users access to all the latest major releases having just opened or still playing in cinemas.

Costing $150 for the box and $50 for a 48-hour viewing of each film, it's not a cheap service. Yet when you combine the cost of taking out a date or family, plus parking, tickets, concessions, etc. - it actually seems reasonable for occasional screenings. The downsides mostly relate to potential increases in the risk of piracy and cannibalisation of the cinema-going »

Ron Howard, Brian Grazer Defend Sean Parker Home Movie Plan

14 March 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brian Grazer and Ron Howard confirmed their involvement in Screening Room, saying that the controversial start-up aimed at providing new releases in the home is a way to bring theater owners and studios together.

Backed by Sean Parker and Prem Akkaraju, Screening Room rents films for $50 while they are still in theaters. Exhibitors have long resisted any attempt to shorten the length of time between a film’s theatrical debut and its release on home entertainment platforms, but Screening Room tries to entice theaters and studios by cutting them in on a slice of the revenue.

“When we met Sean and Prem last year, it was clear Screening Room was the only solution that supports all stakeholders in the industry: exhibitors, studios and filmmakers,” Grazer and Howard said in a joint statement. “The Sr model is fair, balanced and provides significant value for the entire industry that we love.

Peter Jackson Says Screening Room Grows the Movie Business (Exclusive)

13 March 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Jackson said he is backing Screening Room, the controversial start-up that wants to deliver new releases to homes while they are still in theaters, because it captures an audience that does not go to the cinema.

“Screening Room will expand the audience for a movie — not shift it from cinema to living room,” Jackson said in a statement.

Jackson isn’t the only big name backing the venture. He is joined as a shareholder by Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Martin Scorsese, Taylor Hackford,  Frank Marshall, and J.J. Abrams.

Screening Room, the brainchild of entrepreneurs Sean Parker and Prem Akkaraju, offers movies for $50 at the same time as they open in theaters. It plans to charge $150 for access to the anti-piracy equipped set-top box that transmits the films and will give customers 48 hours to watch the movies. The hope is to capture middle-aged audiences whose family responsibilities prevent »

Dad's Army review

facebook

twitter

google+

The new take on Dad's Army gives a standout role to Toby Jones. Here's our review of the new comedy.

Don't panic! Oliver Parker's big screen version of classic British sitcom Dad's Army (48 years old this year) is remarkably faithful to Jimmy Perry and David Croft's much-loved original and by no means the travesty that some had feared. It benefits chiefly from a note-perfect cast and a warm glow of reverential nostalgia that pervades the entire project, but it's slightly let down by a meandering script and the playing-it-safe comedy moments tend to generate amused smiles rather than out-and-out laughter.

Set in 1944, in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, the film stars Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, the leader of an elderly platoon of the Home Guard that comprises Oxford-educated Sergeant Wilson (Bill Nighy), doddery Private Godfrey (Michael Gambon), excitable Lance Corporal Jones (Tom Courtenay »
