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.

clarice ending

The lambs may finally stop screaming. Clarice will reportedly end after just one season on CBS, after talks stalled on the Silence of the Lambs prequel’s planned move from CBS to Paramount+. Now, it seems that move has been nixed, and Clarice is doomed to be thrown at the bottom of a hole alongside so many other one-season shows.

Greenland Sequel

Greenland, a shockingly good Gerard Butler movie about a planet-killing comet, is getting a sequel. Which is a little surprising, since the movie ended with the comet smashing into Earth and killing off a huge chunk of the population. But those who survived will now be forced to deal with more problems as they trek across the ruined wasteland of what was once Europe. Butler and original director Ric Roman Waugh are both set to return for the sequel, which is called Greenland: Migration.

Millennium’s Red Sonja cast may have just added another actor who has previously played in the Marvel Studios sandbox.

Hannah John-Kamen, who played the mysterious villain Ghost in 2019’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, is starring in the sword-and-sandal fantasy epic that’s been mired in development hell for years, and now it appears that Thor and Thor: The Dark World actress Jaimie Alexander may be joining her in a whole different type of comic book movie.

J.K. Simmons Interview

At some point, you started recognizing J.K. Simmons. Maybe you started recognizing him after his scene-stealing role as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies. Maybe you started recognizing him after he won an Oscar for his terrifying work in Whiplash. Hell, maybe you’ve been recognizing him for years — few actors are as busy, and fewer are so consistently reliable.

Simmons has a supporting role in the new science fiction film The Tomorrow War, the kind of small-but-important role he has been elevating for decades. But unlike 20 years ago, you know his character is important the moment he shows up just because he’s played by an actor every movie fan has grown to adore. J.K. Simmons has become Hollywood’s least-hidden chameleon.

Speaking over Zoom ahead of the July release of The Tomorrow War, I asked Simmons about his rise through the ranks of Hollywood “that guys,” the impressive beard he sports throughout the new film, a key moment in Whiplash that has never left my mind, and whether he’s down to return for a Spider-Man movie again.

There’s an elephant in the room when you talk to Betty Gilpin about her role in The Tomorrow War. Even though the star of GLOW and The Hunt brings humor and charm to her role as the wife of Chris Pratt’s former solider who is recruited to travel through time to fight aliens in an apocalyptic future, she’s still playing…you know, the wife who stays home and doesn’t get to fight the aliens.

But do you know who doesn’t care about that? Betty Gilpin. “I was very happy to be eating bagels in baggy sweaters, waving at everyone as they went off to gun training and stunt training and were icing their knees and stuff,” she told me over Zoom. “My knees feel great.”

The Tomorrow War allows Gilpin to be funny, which is a good thing, because she’s a very funny performer. She’s even funny during exhausting press days, when she answered my questions about the possibility of GLOW ever coming back and why she’s no longer playing Ann Coulter in the upcoming season of American Crime Story. There’s a honesty in her humor as well – not many interviews end with an actor excited about what happens “when the wrinkles show up on [their] face.”

Robin Hood Prince of Thieves 30 Years

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, the 1991 gritty reboot of the Robin Hood legend, turns 30 today. And while there are plenty of warranted criticisms against the film, there’s also plenty of stuff to love, too. Sure, the movie has no real grasp on the historical elements it injects into the mythology, and Kevin Costner‘s attempt at an English accent is laughable. But Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is not without its charms. So here are five things to love about Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

The Tomorrow War Director Interview

The Tomorrow War may be a 2021 release, but it feels like a throwback. It would’ve been right at home in the ’90s, and director Chris McKay is a-okay with that.

It’s a premise that could be preposterous: visitors from the future arrive in the modern day to recruit soldiers for a war against an alien race that hasn’t even started yet. But the film takes any potential silliness in stride, taking the premise seriously even while the characters themselves trade enough jokes to keep the mood light. It’s a balance McKay mastered in the realm of animation. Who knew The LEGO Batman Movie would be the perfect training ground for a summer blockbuster crafted out of Roland Emmerich’s personal mold?

I spoke with McKay over Zoom about the film’s (very scary) aliens, adding humor to a very script, and how being compared to ’90s action movies is a compliment.
