Spider-Man: Homecoming is still a year away from being in theaters, but the Marvel Studios Comic-Con panel had a surprisingly robust teaser for a movie that has just started filming. That presentation opened the floodgates and a steady stream of news about the film, which finds Tom Holland getting his own solo Peter Parker outing after a show-stopping debut in Captain America: Civil War. So, in the interest of keeping everyone on the same page, let’s run down the latest Spidey details that have emerged in the past few days.

Before we begin, let me warn you that if you are not interested or entertained by fan theories, this article and video is not for you. Shut the window and leave now. I’ve always been interested in well-presented arguments, especially for films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens that leave a mystery open for the audience to debate and theorize about. This new video by Vincent Vendetta presents the evidence that Rey might be Emperor Palpatine’s great granddaughter. It’s not a new theory, but the video presents all the “evidence” in a nice and digestible format. Hit the jump to watch the Rey Palatine theory video essay.

For the past several years now, Warner Bros. and everyone involved have gone back and forth on Beetlejuice 2. The studio got the ball rolling in 2011 when they hired Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg to write, and since then, Tim Burton, Winona Ryder, and Michael Keaton have all weighed in every so often with varying degrees of optimism about the movie actually happening. And as of now, Keaton is sounding pretty damn pessimistic. “It’s possible that ship has sailed,” the actor admitted in a recent interview. Read More »
Say what you want about the Saw series (and you can saw many things about the Saw series), but I always appreciated how they kept the horror movie sequel tradition alive. If a horror movie can’t be allowed to exist solely on its own, if it must have a sequel, then it needs to to have five sequels. Ten sequels. There needs to be enough sequels to create continuous chatter and constant rankings. When a horror series is allowed to sprawl, to get bad, to get good again, to explore bizarre avenues, it becomes a true object of curiosity, something to get invested in, even if that investment can be an abusive relationship.
So I greet the news of a Lights Out sequel with open arms. Bring it on. And bring on six more. Why the hell not?

When The Rocketeer was originally released in 1991, it was a box office flop. Now, over twenty years later, it’s clear that it was simply a few decades ahead of its time. Joe Johnston‘s film, an adaptation of Dave Stevens‘ comic book series of the same name, is earnest, adventurous, silly, and impossibly nerdy. It’s a throwback to old school serial adventure movies, but it still feels fresh and modern today. Like Johnston’s later comic book movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, it’s a superhero movie that takes full advantage of its period setting to create a world that is fresh and fun and feels unlike most modern action movies. The Rocketeer has rightfully developed a massive following over the years.
Now, Disney seems to have taken notice of the love swirling around the film and have begun developing a sequel titled The Rocketeers. This is the very definition of cool movie news.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re about a week from seeing whether or not Suicide Squad is as fun as the trailers have made it out to be, hopefully making it the perfect remedy for those who didn’t enjoy Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There’s not much buzz on the supervillain spin-off of the DC Comics cinematic universe just yet (the embargo on those who have seen it so far breaks in the morning on August 2), but we’re definitely hoping for the best.
Continuing to tease the arrival of Suicide Squad, a new featurette has just surfaced online, and this one has tons of new footage from the film as well as some great glimpses behind the scenes of the set (which we visited last year while they were in production). The cast talks about the experience of working with David Ayer, and there’s plenty of talking heads with the filmmaker himself and some of the other integral members of the crew. Watch the new Suicide Squad featurette below. Read More »
Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just recently unveiled the Ultimate Edition on Blu-Ray and DVD, the DC Comics movie has been talked about all over again. While the Ultimate Edition has been said to improve upon the theatrical cut of the film, it still undoubtedly has its problems, and a new video essay attempts to explain what the fundamental flaw is in Zack Snyder‘s comic book sequel, and it makes quite a valid point.

Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is underway right now, and we’ve seen plenty of firewroks from the set as Michael Bay shoots his action sequel around the country. But the franchise director took a break from blowing stuff up to reveal yet another one of the Transformers we’ll see, and it’s one that calls back to the days of the Transformers animated series from the 1980s.
Michael Bay revealed the Decepticon known as Onslaught will be part of the villain line-up this time, and while his vehicle form doesn’t look exactly like it did when he first appeared in the original series, he’s still a pretty intimidating truck. Check out the new new Transformers The Last Knight Onslaught vehicle after the jump. Read More »
