Almost all the news about movies nowadays is about release dates being pushed back due to the shutdown of production during the coronavirus pandemic and also the closure of nearly all movie theaters around the United States. Marvel Studios recently made some big changes to their schedule over the next couple years, but apparently that wasn’t enough. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been pushed back again, this time into the spring of 2022, and Spider-Man 3 has shifted too. Meanwhile, Thor: Love & Thunder has been bumped up just a bit. Read More »
It’s very likely that production on the third installment of the Spider-Man franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be delayed, possibly impacting the film’s July 16, 2021 release date next year. That means we’re not entirely sure when we’ll see Tom Holland back in the red and blue tights as your friendly neighborhood webslinger again. But last night, the wallcrawling star reprised his big screen role as Spidey’s alter ego Peter Parker (and a homemade version of Spider-Man) on a much smaller screen during a remote interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he surprised the host’s three-year old son for his birthday.

While many movies and TV shows are halting production and some of the spring’s biggest blockbuster movies are being delayed as the threat of the coronavirus pandemic spreads, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are still hoping they’ll be able to begin production on Spider-Man 3 this summer.
Spider-Man franchise star Tom Holland recently confirmed that production on the still untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home is looking to begin production in July. That’s still a good few months away, but depending on how things play out with the coronavirus concerns, that schedule could end up being in jeopardy. But that’s not all Tom Holland revealed about the sequel. Read More »
As we all know by now, Spider-Man is sticking around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But there was a hot second there where it looked like the deal between Sony and Marvel had fallen through, and Spidey was going to leave the MCU. Thankfully for fans, it all worked out in the end. But according to current Spider-Man Tom Holland, Spidey’s MCU departure wouldn’t have been such a bad thing. In fact, in Holland’s words, Sony had a “really wonderful idea” on how Spider-Man would exit the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The first reactions are out for Pixar’s latest animated film Onward, and while the fantasy-comedy film doesn’t seem to be casting a spell on all critics, there’s plenty of reason to be excited for the road trip movie starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt.
Two new Onward clips help feed into that excitement, showing a sneak peek at the scene in which Holland and Pratt’s elf brothers, on a quest to magic their dead father to life for a day, come face to face with the not-so-fearsome Manticore, played by Octavia Spencer. Accompanying that clip is a behind-the-scenes featurette showing Holland and Pratt’s sibling relationship, and exactly what kind of performance Spencer is giving here. Watch the new Onward clips below.

The last time we heard about Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley was last April. The adaptation of Patrick Ness’ novel The Knife of Never Letting Go was “deemed unreleasable,” and millions were going to be spent on reshoots for the film from Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. The movie was expected to arrive sometime this year since only three weeks of reshoots were needed to fix the movie, but Lionsgate has now set a release date for January 2021, nearly an entire year away.

With one month left until Pixar’s Onward hits theaters, the buzz doesn’t seem to be all that high. Maybe it’s because this is Pixar’s first original movie since Coco was released in the fall of 2017, but there’s just not a lot of hype yet. That’s why Disney is doing their best to get the word out and show audiences what the modern fantasy world of Onward is all about, and that includes the touching story at the center of it that was inspired by Dan Scanlon‘s real-life experience of having never properly met his father.
