new Spider-Man actor

Goldstein were in talks to script Spider-Man, after losing out on the directing job to Jon Watts (Cop Car). Now the pair have finally confirmed their involvement, and have started to talk a little bit about their vision for the wisecracking webslinger.

The key word there is wisecracking — from the sounds of it, this Spidey will be wittier and funnier than his big-screen predecessors have been. Read the Spider-Man writers comments after the jump. Read More »

Pixels script changes for China

This weekend brings the release of the video game-infused sci-fi action comedy Pixels, and with a 19% on Rotten Tomatoes, it seems pretty clear that Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison production banner have botched an awesome concept with juvenile comedy. Not even supporting cast members like Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage can save the movie.

This is even more frustrating when you learn that Sony went out of their way to change the script for Pixels in order to avoid potential problems with authorities in China, but couldn’t be bothered to make sure the rest of the script was better.

new Spectre trailer

The first teaser trailer for Spectre, the 25th James Bond film, dropped a few stunning plot hints, including the suggestion that Bond (played once again by Daniel Craig) has some direct link to the organization Spectre, and perhaps more than one link at that. The first extended TV spot had many flashes of action.

Now we’ve got the new Spectre trailer — the first full-length trailer for the movie, in fact — with a lot more footage, and even more info for Bond fans to chew on. There’s action in Mexico, a few cheeky lines, some new gear courtesy of Q, and a lot more mystery around that evil organization, Spectre, which turns out to have deep roots in Bond’s own past. Check it out below!

James Horner composed The Magnificent Seven score

Last month brought the tragic and surprising news that Oscar-winning composer James Horner had died in a plane crash at 61 years old. It was certainly a crushing blow to the world of cinema that had been so touched by his incredible scores for films such as Titanic, Braveheart, A Beautiful Mind, Aliens, Field of Dreams and more.

At the time, it looked like his last two contributions to the big screen as a composer were going to be Antoine Fuqua’s boxing drama Southpaw (in theaters this week) and the Chilean miner drama The 33, starring Antonio Banderas. However, we may hear even more new music from James Horner in the remake of The Magnificent Seven, because Horner secretly composed music for the film before he died.
