Spider-Man

Other than Peter Parker’s high school, we don’t have much of an idea where Spider-Man: Homecoming will take us. Director Jon Watts has said that the film will take place on the bottom floor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean we’ll get a glimpse of the top level as well. Could we see Spider-man visit Avengers HQ in the new film?

Last night it was revealed that Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino would be replacing Alexandre Desplat to score Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. When I heard the news after arriving at a press screening of The Magnificent Seven, I was met with two conflicting emotions: excitement and dread. Here’s why.

Vincent D’Onofrio's Kingpin will Return

One of the best parts of Daredevil Season One was Vincent D’Onofrio as New York City crime lord Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin. The character had a significantly reduced role in the second season as Punisher and Elektra were brought into the mix. And now that Netflix has put Daredevil on hold to launch Luke Cage (which premieres on September 30th) and Iron Fist, leading into their 2017 superhero team-up event The Defenders, we don’t know if Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin will appear again in Marvel’s Netflix universe. But D’Onofrio seems to know that Kingpin will return, but he’s not saying when it will happen.

fifty shades darker bears star wars

Earlier this week, Universal released the trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter in the Fifty Shades franchise. When the first film was released in 2015, it hit at the exact right time to capitalize on the success of the book series. I had always assumed that the excitement for the series would die down. I could never have anticipated that the sequel trailer would beat out Star Wars: the Force Awakens to become the most-viewed trailer in the first 24 hours of release. Find out how many more views Fifty Shades Darker beats Star Wars by, after the jump.

morgan spurlock's rats trailer

Morgan Spurlock‘s new documentary Rats takes a look at the history of rat infestations in major cities throughout the world. The film premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, and now the first trailer is online. Edited almost like a part horror movie, part pre-apocalyptic disaster warning movie, the trailer looks nothing like any of Spurlock’s previous films. We don’t even glimpse the documentary filmmaker on screen, and the trailer is as grave and uninviting as Spurlock’s films are usually extremely accessible. Hit the jump to watch the Rats trailer, if you dare.

movie scores

Earlier this week, we posted a video essay that attempted to explain why none of the Marvel Studios movies don’t seem to have an iconic bold, memorable score or theme song. It was the kind of video that everyone appeared to respond to because it expressed a critique we all saw or felt and it introduced a problem that many of us weren’t aware of (that being, how temp music infiltrates a final cut of a movie).

Tony Zhou does a fantastic job with his Every Frame A Painting video series but at the end of the day its just one man’s view on the world of cinema. And the great thing about the internet is that it provides a forum for others to respond. A new video essay explains why temp music is not to blame for Marvel’s score problems and suggests that the rise of digital scoring technology may be responsible for a larger epidemic in Hollywood soundtracks.
