Spider-Man 4 animatic

The year was 2010. Casting news was ramping up about Spider-Man 4, the fourth installment of director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film series for Sony Pictures. John Malkovich was tapped to play The Vulture, and Anne Hathaway was in talks to play Felicia Hardy – who, in this iteration, would not have been the catsuit-wearing thief Black Cat, but would instead be the daughter of The Vulture known as The Vulturess.

That movie came crashing down and Sony ultimately moved on to Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man films before abandoning those and teaming up with Marvel Studios on the Tom Holland-led movies. But a recently uploaded Spider-Man 4 animatic video reveals what a major action set-piece from Raimi’s scrapped movie would have looked like.

Spider-Man: No Way Home logo

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be extremely interested in the idea of the multiverse: a series of separate, distinct universes running parallel to one another. Some characters have the ability to jump in and out of those universes, and before we see Doctor Strange grapple with the Multiverse of Madness next year, Spider-Man: No Way Home is primed to take audiences into that chaos by re-introducing familiar heroes and villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies into the MCU.

In a now-deleted tweet, the Sony Pictures Argentina account revealed a brief video of a new version of the Spider-Man: No Way Home logo, which ends with the logo glitching in a manner that is extraordinarily reminiscent of the glitches that happened in the 2018 animated classic Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Ghostbusters Mini-Pufts Action Figures

Ghostbusters Day happened earlier this week, and for the most part, it came and went without much excitement.

Thankfully, we have some new Ghostbusters action figures that were revealed to hold us over for now. Read More »

Ghostbusters Afterlife Behind-the-Scenes

Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and we were all expecting some hot Ghostbuster content to go along with that since Ghostbusters: Afterlife is headed to theaters this year. But, oddly enough, there really wasn’t much to talk about. Even odder still is the fact that today, not yesterday, we’ve got a brand new behind-the-scenes video about Ghostbusters: Afterlife. This would’ve been perfect for Ghostbusters Day, Sony Pictures! Just putting that out there!

In any case, the featurette isn’t so much about Ghostbusters: Afterlife as it is about director Jason Reitman following in the footsteps of his father, original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman.

sony release dates delayed

The Ghostbusters franchise creates phantoms that come with more fun than fear, its charm embedded within quirky characters, zany ghosts, and plenty of comical one-liners. The original film was directed by Ivan Reitman and released nearly 40 years ago, but like ghosts, this series keeps coming back. Continuing to keep ghosts (and ghostbusters) in the family, director Jason Reitman is following in his own father’s footsteps with the newest film in the franchise, Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

And since today is Ghostbusters Day (which yes, is a real thing), some new images and details about the new film have been conjured online.

once upon a time in hollywood novel

Quentin Tarantino‘s novelization of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is almost as highly anticipated as his Oscar-winning 2019 film was, if only because it invites us to once again hang out in that world of 1960s Hollywood. A world that Tarantino plans to expand upon in his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood novel, which will throw in a some deleted scenes as well as expand on the characters played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.
