Spider-Man Spin-Off Marvel Universe - Spider-Man Homecoming

Following the unprecedented collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing the webslinger to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers, fans were surprised that there were spin-offs being developed featuring ancillary characters like Venom and a team-up movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat, especially when Kevin Feige confirmed they wouldn’t be tied to the MCU.

The development of these Spider-Man spin-offs seem counter-intuitive considering how successful Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to be this summer, currently tracking between $90 million and $108 million for an opening weekend. However, according to producer Amy Pascal, just because these movies featuring Spider-Man characters aren’t connected to the MCU doesn’t mean Tom Holland can’t pop up in them as the friendly neighborhood wallcrawler.

Baby Driver Trailer Remix

Blockbuster summer has been a fairly disappointing season thus far. For my money, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been the only movie that has truly delivered what a summer blockbuster is. Thankfully, the season is only half over, and we’ve got plenty of great movies coming down the pipeline, one of which will be arriving in just a couple weeks and just might have a soundtrack that rivals the aforementioned Marvel Studios sequel.

Baby Driver is the latest film from Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs the World director Edgar Wright, and along with the crisp action, editing and camera work that comes with all of the director’s films, there’s a thumping soundtrack that keeps the movie alive in a mesmerizing way. In the spirit of the adrenaline-fueled action flick, DJ Mike Relm created a Baby Driver trailer remix using sound effects, dialogue and more to create an interesting track that wouldn’t feel out of place in the movie itself. Watch it below! Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Score

This year we’re getting three new scores from composer Michael Giacchino. You can hear one of them in theaters this weekend with the arrival of Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry, which isn’t getting very good reviews. But the next one will arrive in theaters early next month.

Spider-Man: Homecoming features a score from Michael Giacchino, complete with all of his punny track titles on the soundtrack. For those interested, the full tracklist has been released, and it doesn’t include any major spoilers for those worried about that kind of thing. Furthermore, the full Spider-Man: Homecoming suite is available for your listening pleasure, giving us a preview of some of the orchestral themes we’ll hear throughout the film.

Venom won't be in a Marvel Studios movie

Earlier today, Spider-Man star Tom Holland confirmed that two more Spidey sequels are in the works, and I’m sure speculation has already begun about which villains the ol’ webhead might end up facing off against in the years to come. But there’s one character it seems like fans can safely take off the table: the alien symbiote Venom.

In a new interview, Marvel mega-producer and creative guru Kevin Feige explains why Venom won’t be in a Marvel Studios anytime soon. Hit the jump to learn what Feige said about the Venom MCU possibilities.

New Spider-Man Trilogy

This summer will bring Spider-Man: Homecoming, the solo debut of the new webslinger played by Tom Holland after his introduction in Captain America: Civil War, to theaters. This new beginning marks a unique collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, but just how far will it go?

There’s already a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel set for release in 2019, and before that, Spidey will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. But as Kevin Feige said during a press day visit to the Marvel Studios offices on the Disney lot, “That’s as far as it goes for now.” However, if Tom Holland is to be believed, it sounds like the Spider-Man deal will go at least one movie beyond that.

Flatliners Remake Trailer

If Netflix’s The Discovery wasn’t quite what you were hoping for in a movie that explores what happens after we die, maybe the remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners will make up for it.

Ellen Page (Juno), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nina Dobrev (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), James Norton (Happy Valley) and Kiersey Clemons (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) star in the remake of Joel Schumacher’s film, taking on the roles originated by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. They are five medical students who learn about what lies beyond mortality when they stop each others’ heart for a few minutes at a time before immediately resuscitate them. What starts as an almost indescribable thrill that seems to have a positive impact on their brain slowly turns into a nightmare as they are each haunted by something tragic from their past.

Spider-Man Homecoming featurette

Tom Holland’s spunky, excitable Spider-Man swings back into theaters next month in a brand new cinematic adventure, but anyone who’s even remotely been paying attention knows that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man is going to play a big part in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Today, Downey took to Twitter to share a new featurette for the film that hones in on the mentor/mentee relationship between the two superheroes, so if this morning’s 22-minute fan’s guide didn’t satiate your thirst for all things Spidey, take a nice, cool sip of this video and see if that does the trick.

Baby Driver Music Featurette

Not long ago, we saw the full soundtrack list for Edgar Wright‘s latest film, the music-driven thriller Baby Driver. Since the music has been built up as an integral part of the movie (which has been described as a car chase musical), it provided insight into what we could expect from the movie. Thanks to a new featurette, we have an even better understanding of just how important music is to driving the film forward (no pun in tended), as Ansel Elgort‘s titular character needs beats thumping in his ears in order to get by in the world.

For anyone who has been curious to see how music is expertly used in Baby Driver, this is the video you’ve been waiting for. You’ll see what we’re talking about in the Baby Driver music featurette below. Read More »

Ghostbusters Reboot Trailer

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call didn’t perform quite as well as the folks at Sony would have liked last year, leading original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd to call Feig out in a big way a few days ago and cast doubt on a sequel. But original Ghostbusters director and Aykroyd’s Ghost House Pictures partner Ivan Reitman apparently doesn’t have the same doom and gloom outlook, because in a new interview, he discusses his idea for the future of Ghostbusters.
