A Brutally Honest Festival Breakdown: Winners, Losers, and Oscar Frontrunners

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Three weeks of film festivals and hundreds of movies later, one stands as the clear winner. Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” won a prize for Emma Stone in Venice, wowed Telluride, and walked away with the Audience Award in Toronto —and by the end of that festival, people paid “Hamilton”-premiums for tickets to the last screening,

Now, that’s word of mouth.

Of course, “La La Land” isn’t alone in its accolades. Here’s how the players came out at the end of the three festivals.

Winners

A24

Established studio players like Sony Pictures Classics aim their sights at the loyal theatergoers who tend to be older; getting younger cinephiles to come to a theater is harder than ever. Nevertheless, A24 seems to have figured out a way. They acquire movies like excoriated Cannes entry “The Sea of Trees” to go out via their deal with DirectTV and iTunes, »

Fall TV Preview: The 17 Most Anticipated Comedies of 2016

6 September 2016 7:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Mary + Jane”

September 5 on MTV 

What Is It? From the writer/directors behind the cult favorite “Josie and the Pussycats” adaptation, this series follows two “ganjapeneurs” who run a weed delivery service in Los Angeles.

I’ll Like It If I Like… The “Broad City” influence is pretty clear, as the show is focused on the tight friendship between Jordan (Scout Durwood) and Paige (Jessica Rothe) and their stoner antics.

Why Should I Care? Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont’s unique approach to satirizing La hipster culture really help this show stand out from the pack of other female-led comedies, while also promising a more surreal touch. Durwood and Rothe also make for an enjoyable pairing. For fans of the pot comedy genre, it’s an easy sell.

Atlanta

September 6 on FX

What is it? Donald Glover of “Community” fame returns to TV in his most ambitious project yet, which he produces, »

Tom Holland Talks Spider-Man, Visits Children's Hospital in New Video

3 September 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few weeks ago, Tom Holland visited a local Atlanta Children's hospital dressed in his Spider-Man: Homecoming costume. At the time, we got to see photos of the actor wandering the halls, talking and taking photos with the various kids who reside there. His visit was made possible through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. Now, they have released a video from this visit, which you can watch below. During his visit, Tom Holland also popped into the recording booth for an interview alongside co-star Jacob Batalon. Asked what it was like to take on the character of Spider-Man, Tom Holland had this to say.

"Spider-Man has always been a huge part of my life. I love the movies. I love the comics. And I always just wanted to be Spider-man. I could have never imagined this would become a reality. I love what I do so much. When I'm on set, »

Spider-man: Homecoming: Zendaya Not Playing Mary Jane After All? Confirmation Of Leaked Call Sheet Brings Claim Into Question

1 September 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is an interesting development in regards to Spider-Man: Homecoming. But before I delve into our findings, I have to bring you up to speed.

A few weeks back, there was a leaked call sheet posted on Reddit. For those who don’t know what a call sheet, it’s a document that studios use for organizing shooting days. In essence, it tells cast and crew when they need to be on set, and where the location is. That leaked call sheet had a lot of cool little revelations.

Check out the photo below:

Among these cool little details was that Kenneth Choi, who played Jim Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger, would be playing Principal Morita -- the principal at Peter Parker’s high school and, presumably, a descendant of Jim Morita. One other key detail was that actor/comedian Hannibal Buress would be playing the role of Coach Wilson. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Set Photos Scurry Online As Hannibal Buress Fuels Shocker Rumors

31 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two weeks ago, a leaked casting sheet for Spider-Man: Homecoming found its way online, igniting a whole wave of fresh rumors pertaining to Jon Watts’ standalone pic.

At the time, we asked you to treat those rumors as just that, but it seems a new interview with Hannibal Buress has lent credence to those reports linking Bokeem Woodbine with The Shocker. During an interview with The Breakfast Club (via Cbm), the Homecoming star touched base on how he fits into Marvel’s massive ensemble cast.

“In Spider-Man, I play a gym teacher,” he said. “I play one of the dumbass characters that don’t realize he’s Spider-Man. [My character thinks] ‘He’s Peter Parker. Oh man, this guy’s really athletic!’”

It’s a fairly nondescript response, right? Well, not necessarily, bearing in mind that that aforementioned document listed Buress as Coach Wilson. If said leak was on point for Buress’ part in Spider-Man: Homecoming, »

Hannibal Buress Seemingly Proves That Leaked Spider-man: Homecoming Call Sheet Is Legit

31 August 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Three weeks ago, part of an alleged call sheet for Spider-Man: Homecoming had surfaced online revealing some pretty… shocking roles in the upcoming reboot. While some had doubted the legitimacy of the photo, actor/comedian Hannibal Buress has finally revealed his role in the movie and it pretty much lines up with what was claimed in the call sheet.     While talking with The Breakfast Club yesterday, Buress was asked about the small roles he has in big upcoming movies, including Spider-Man: Homecoming. “In Spider-Man, I play a gym teacher,” he said. “I play one of the dumbass characters that don't realize he's Spider-Man. [My character thinks] ‘He’s Peter Parker. Oh man, this guy’s really athletic!’”   In the Homecoming call sheet that made the rounds earlier this month, Hannibal Buress’s role was listed as Coach Wilson at Peter Parker’s Midtown Science and Technology School. So, with Buress’ confirmation that he »

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 »

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 »
