The Crowded Room

Tom Holland is taking another bite out of Apple.

The once and future Spider-Man actor recently worked with the streamer on the Russo Brothers’ film Cherry, and now word has arrived that he will play the lead role in a new anthology series for AppleTV+ called The Crowded Room, which hails from writer and executive producer Akiva Goldsman. And it sounds like he’ll be playing another character that will allow him to flex a different set of muscles as an actor.

chaos walking review

Maybe there’s a reason that the YA dystopian genre had been long left behind by Hollywood. Films like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner had their heyday in the early 2010s, but the premise of beautiful teens and twenty-somethings having to reckon with their share of authoritarian governments/world-ending threats/love triangles had run its course. But there will always be a few stragglers to a Hollywood trend, and the long-delayed Chaos Walking is one of them.

Tom Holland's Spider-Man Contract Ending

Spider-Man: No Way Home was just officially announced as the third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise co-produced by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. There was a time when the studios parted ways and it seemed like Tom Holland might be done playing the webslinger, but thankfully they sorted things out. However, the actor has confirmed that Spider-Man: No Way Home will be the last film under his contract with Sony/Marvel, but that doesn’t mean he’s done wallcrawling. Read More »

cherry review

Full of shifting aspect ratios, changing color palettes, abundant slow-motion, and all sorts of over-stylized hokum, Cherry is so showy that it borders on laughable. Scratch that – it goes beyond those laughable borders, into the land of the full-blown ridiculous. In their first post-Marvel Cinematic Universe effort, the Russo Brothers want us to know they’re very serious filmmakers. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have picked such a serious topic – a tale of disaffected youth, war, violence, bank robbery, drug addiction, and more. But nothing here feels as gritty as it should. There’s no stark realism, no raw honesty. Everything in Cherry is for show. Subtlety is for chumps. Instead, the Russos whip out a series of tricks that they seem to have picked up from music videos, Super Bowl commercials, and other, better movies. The end results are nothing short of disastrous.

tom holland star wars audition

It turns out that before he became Spider-Man, Tom Holland auditioned to join a galaxy far, far away. In a new interview, Holland reveals that he auditioned to play Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a role that went to John Boyega in the end. And based on Holland’s story, it’s no surprise he didn’t land the part since the audition didn’t go so well.

Chaos Walking, a movie that wrapped four years ago, is finally heading to theaters. Maybe. Look, we’ve been here before – the sci-fi adventure film was once supposed to arrive in 2019, so there’s always a chance it could get delayed yet again. But today, Lionsgate announced that tickets for Chaos Walking were on sale. And with that ticket announcement came a new clip from the film, which shows stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in the midst of a high-speed chase, with Holland riding a horse and Ridley on a dirt bike.

spider-man 3 tobey maguire

While Marvel hasn’t officially confirmed this one way or another, it’s a pretty safe bet that the upcoming Spider-Man 3 is going to bring in the idea of the MultiVerse. Characters and actors from previous Spider-Man franchises are coming back – Jamie Foxx as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2. And Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange is on hand as well, further opening up the possibilities for alternate dimensions.

All of this has lead to speculation that previous Spideys Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would be popping up in the film as well. Marvel remains tight-lipped on the whole thing, but in a new interview, current Spider-Man Tom Holland completely shoots down the idea, stating unequivocally that Maguire and Garfield won’t be back. But is he telling the truth?
