Spider-Man 4

The cancellation of Spider-Man 4 still feels like a missed opportunity, especially after how The Amazing Spider-Man movies turned out. Sony pulled the plug on what could’ve allowed Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire to send Spider-Man out on a high note. Instead of waiting to get the script right, the studio decided to reboot quickly instead.

You might all recall what went down with the sequel, but ten years after Spider-Man 3 hit theaters, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and remember the Spider-Man sequel we wanted and never got.

manipulated studio logos

Studio logos serve a general purpose for any movie. They can suggest a type of film – people have a basic idea of what a Disney movie entails – or simply a sense of pomp and circumstance. While there’s no shortage of studio or production company logos, there aren’t as many cases of filmmakers playing around with those logos in front of their movies. This list highlights 25 such unique cases over 80 years, from the goofy to the ominous.

Masters of the Universe Release Date

The road to get a Masters of the Universe movie in theaters again has been paved with endless pit stops and speed bumps. Countless directors have flirted with the property, and plenty of writers have taken a crack at the script, including writers Alex Litvak and Mike Finch, who initially worked on the script over six years ago, circling back to try again most recently. Now we have some good news, some potentially decent news, and some great news regarding the development of the fantasy adaptation.

The good news is, Sony Pictures has officially given a 2019 release date to the film. The potentially decent news is there’s a new writer on board. And the great news is that McG is no longer involved as director. Find about the Masters of the Universe release date and development after the jump. Read More »

The Social Network

If you’re looking for a film that accurately depicts the creation of Facebook, it’s not The Social Network. But if you’re looking for a sharply written drama that defines the generation who is living on the internet, then David Fincher‘s drama scripted by Aaron Sorkin is just the ticket.

Still, just because The Social Network was nominated for Best Picture does not make it safe from the folks at Screen Junkies, who decided to mock the film in an Honest Trailer in honor of this week’s release of The Circle starring Tom Hanks. You also might be surprised to learn how many laptops were broken in the scene where Andrew Garfield smashes Jesse Eisenberg‘s computer.

james bond 25

The James Bond series may be 55 years old, but it’s still the prettiest girl at the ball. After finishing their four-film distribution deal with Sony following the release of Spectre in 2015, 007 owners Eon Productions and MGM started shopping around for a new partner. Right now, the bulk of the suitors are the older, more established companies. However, it seems that Annapurna, the young hotshot behind some of the most interesting and daring movies of the past few years, has thrown its hat into the ring.

Passengers Recut

Despite having a script that was on the Black List, the romantic sci-fi drama Passengers was a bit of a disappointment when it hit theaters late last year. Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in the shiny film from director Morten Tyldum which took quite a lashing from critics for its problematic story. Even beyond that, Passengers was also criticized for being rather predictable. But what if there was one way to improve the final cut of the movie that would have made it infinitely more engaging?

Nerdwriter takes a close look at Passengers and imagines how the story would have played out in a much more interesting way if instead of following the movie from the perspective of Chris Pratt’s character Jim, we begin the movie from the viewpoint of Jennifer Lawrence’s character Aurora. It adds an entirely different feel to the first half of the movie. Read More »

Martin Starr

Here’s a stone cold fact: the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming is stacked. It has Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., and Michael Keaton in lead roles, and a murderer’s row of supremely talented supporting cast members, including Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori, Bokeem Woodbine, Kenneth Choi, and Donald Glover, to name a few. But one thing fans have been wondering for a while is just what the heck some of these supporting players are actually going to be doing in this movie. For many of them, information about their roles has been kept very hush-hush from the beginning.

Silicon Valley actor Martin Starr locked down a role in this movie almost a year ago, and now we finally have some details from the actor himself about the character he’ll be playing. Read on to discover more info on the Spider-Man: Homecoming Martin Starr role.

Animated Spider-Man Movie Cast

We already met a new Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Captain America: Civil War, with Tom Holland suited up as the webslinger. But Sony Pictures also wants to give fans a version of the wallcrawler that they’ve wanted to see on the big screen for a long time.

An animated Spider-Man movie has been in development at Sony Pictures for a little while now, and this version of the Marvel superhero will focus on Miles Morales, a popular incarnation of the webhead who was introduced to fans in 2011 and whose secret identity is a half-black, half-Latino high schooler. Now Sony has finally hired someone to voice this version of Spider-Man, and it’s Dope and The Get Down star Shameik Moore. Read More »
