The Current War Trailer

Today, electricity surges through our homes, offices and restaurants and we’re hard-pressed to get anything done without the power it provides. But back in the 19th century, electricity was in its infancy, and it was at the center of a war between two of the greatest minds of the time to see who would control the marketplace for energy. The story of that historic battle is coming to the big screen this fall.

The Current War stars Benedict Cumberbatch as inventor Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as entrepreneur and engineer George Westinghouse as the two battle to see whose idea for bringing electricity to the masses would become the primary source for power. The battle stems from Edison’s company wanting to use direct current while Westinghouse thought alternating current was the way to go, hence the title of the movie. Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Blu-ray

Right now Spider-Man: Homecoming is still in theaters, pulling in $325 million at the domestic box office so far, but it’s almost time for the film to be done with its theatrical run. That means it will soon be time for fans to bring Spidey home, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment just announced when that will happen.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be coming to 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD in October, but it will arrive on digital download this month. Find out exactly when you can get the version of your choice and what special features will be included on the release below. Read More »

Infinity War Script

Marvel Studios is notoriously secretive when it comes to their big screen endeavors, and when it comes to the next assembly of The Avengers, they’re not even trusting the cast members who play Earth’s mightiest heroes to keep their mouths shut.

Avengers: Infinity War is done shooting and production on Avengers 4 is underway. We’ve already gotten a taste of what The Avenger sequel will bring to the table next summer with the footage that played at both The D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con, but when it comes to hearing new details about the movie, we may not be able to rely on the cast members to accidentally spill secrets as often as they did before. That’s because directors Anthony & Joe Russo didn’t give their cast the entire Infinity War script and only provided them with the relevant pages and information they needed to effectively deliver the best performance.

Spider-Man Homecoming Sequel Director

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a certified hit all around. Not only is it sitting high with a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, but the movie has already pulled in over $472 million worldwide after being in theaters for just under two weeks. The success of the movie can definitely be attributed to the reboot of the webslinger being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one of the main reasons the movie turned out so well is because of director Jon Watts, and both Sony and Marvel have decided to keep him around.

Spider-Man Homecoming Final Scene

Though the marketing campaign for Spider-Man: Homecoming seemed like it had spoiled a lot of the movie, there were still a handful of surprises in Spidey’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that remained unrevealed until we were sitting in the theater. One of those moments came in the final scene before the credits started rolling, but since there are plenty of people who didn’t contribute to the film’s estimated $117 million opening weekend, we won’t talk about any details in that scene until after a spoiler warning presented in bold font so you can’t possibly miss it.

Beware of spoilers from here on out! You’ve been warned! Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters this weekend, and like every other Marvel Studios movie, there are some bonus scenes both during and after the credits. It’s not quite as involved as the five credits scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but there’s one after the animated closing credits sequence and one after the all the credits have scrolled by. The latter is merely a gag scene that we won’t give away here because it’s much better to just wait and experience yourself, but we’ll say it’s easily one of the funniest post-credits scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ranking up there with dancing Baby Groot.

However, it’s the mid-credits scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming that we want to talk about, because it might be perplexing to audiences for a number of reasons. So join us below as we talk about the Spider-Man Homecoming credits scene, but do not read any further if you want to avoid spoilers for the movie, because they’re all over the place. Read More »

A couple weeks back, I was lucky to jump on the phone with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Sony studio head turned producer Amy Pascal to talk about their new film Spider-Man: Homecoming. I ask the duo about the lessons they learned from the last Amazing Spider-Man franchise failure, the influence of Back to the Future, was the Trump campaign an influence on the film’s villain, why they watched an Akira Kurosawa movie in prep for the film, and we discuss what the end credits scene means. All this and more. Read the full Spider-Man: Homecoming Interview, after the jump.

spider man homecoming sequel

Spider-Man: Homecoming has enough buzz and critical praise — as well as estimates of a $100 million opening weekend at the box office — to all but greenlight and usher in the next few Spider-Man movies with star Tom Holland. But while fans are clamoring for more, director Jon Watts still won’t confirm if he’ll return to helm the sequel.

It’s lucky then that we have Holland and his notoriously loose lips to give us hope that Watts will be back to direct the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Marvel should really keep a tight leash on this kid.

spider-man homecoming theme

For some fans, it goes without saying that Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t just a title that describes what’s happening in the high school life of the superhero’s young alter ego Peter Parker (Tom Holland). It’s also evocative of the fact that the webslinger is finally back home where he belongs, in the same cinematic universe as his other Marvel Comics comrades, the Avengers.

Spider-Man: Homecoming gives us the spectacular version of the webslinger that fans have been waiting to see. It stands out from the rest of the adaptations, including the more favored original iteration directed by Sam Raimi and portrayed by Tobey Maguire, simply because it introduces a dynamic that has been lacking from the Spider-Man franchises thus far. Not only does it combine the trials and tribulations of high school life with the dangers of being a secret superhero, but it also gives Spider-Man a much larger world to play in, one that may be more intimidating than the wallcrawler himself even realizes.

Marvel Stars Before They Were Famous

By the time we’re done with The Avengers 4 in 2019, there will have been 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only does Marvel Studios have a massive roster of movies, but they have an insanely huge cast that they have to bring together when it’s time for The Avengers to assemble and save the world from an impending threat.

Most of the superheroes in the MCU are quite recognizable names who had long careers before joining comic book movies like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson, but others didn’t become household names until they starred in the Marvel movies in question. No matter how famous they are now thanks to the MCU, there was a time before these actors and actress were famous, and a new video highlights just what they were doing before you even knew who they were.
