Thanks to a set of exclusive photos from Looper.com, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was spotted on set in full costume, sporting a back pack, giving away that even superheroes have homework. In the pics, Spider-Man appears to be readying a heroic move on the way back from school and jumping on the back of a construction truck that looks to be rigged for a major stunt. Spider-Man: Homecoming will feature Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Tony Revolor, Donald Glover, Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. It comes to theatres July 7th, 2017.
Deadline is reporting that Daniel Craig is in talks to star opposite Halle Berry in Mustang director Deniz Gamze Erguven’s English-language debut Kings. The project is set against the backdrop of Los Angeles during the Rodney King trial in 1992. Craig will play Ollie, a loner living in South Centrail who befriends and falls in love with Berry’s character, a protective mother looking after her kids. When the riots explode in the city, Craig’s character helps Berry try and track down the kids from the worst of the violence, as the riots spread across L.A; lasting six days and leading to 55 deaths in the wake of the acquittal of the policemen who beat King. Erguven’s dream has been to make this movie ever since she graduated from the prestigious French Fémis film school. Her debut film, Mustang, was Oscar nominated for Best Foreign Language film and was a box office smash in France. A release date for Kings has yet to be set.
Alcon Entertainment announced yesterday that Barkhad Abdi, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in Captain Phillips, has joined the production of the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. He joins a cast that includes Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, and Dave Bautista. The Blade Runner sequel is set several decades after the 1982 original, with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role as Rick Deckard. The film is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and is directed by Sicario and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve, reuniting him with cinematographer Roger Deakins. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in July with a release date set for October 6, 2017.
During Collider.com’s recent set visit to Justice League producer Deborah Snyder confirmed that Tom Holkenborg, AKA Junkie XL will return to the DC Films universe to score Justice League. Holkenborg is one of the fastest rising film composers at the moment, working on scores for Divergent, 300: Rise of An Empire, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But it was his score for Mad Max: Fury Road that he made the strongest impression with fans, leading to his work on two superhero flicks, Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Justice League is set to hit theatres on November 17, 2017.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy dropped a fairly big tidbit about Rogue One that many fans missed: apparently, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not include the iconic opening crawl fans have come to expect for a Star Wars universe film. Based on her comments to EW, however, it looks as though the discussions about it are ongoing. Kennedy said it’s something they’re discussing now, so she doesn’t want to say definitively what they’re doing. The crawl and some of those elements live so specifically within the ‘saga’ films. For now, fans will have to wait and see what the powers that be at Lucasfilm decide when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theatres on December 16th.
Daniel Radcliffe is currently making the rounds to promote Swiss Army Man and during one of the interviews with Radio Times, he was asked if he would ever return to the Wizarding World that made him famous – Harry Potter. The question was posed whether Radcliffe would be up for playing Harry Potter again, to which he offered up if the circumstances presented themselves. He is saying ‘no’ for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future. For now, fans can hope that there will be a chance for Daniel Radcliffe to return as a grown-up Harry Potter and that J.K. Rowling herself will write a story that will focus on his later years. Meantime you can catch Radcliffe in Swiss Army Man, playing in theatres now.

With the passing of Buddy Ryan (NFL coach) and Pat Summitt (Coach, Univ of TN) what actors have, in your mind, done a really good job playing coaches in a movie? Mine are Gene Hackman in Hoosiers and Denzel Washington & Will Patton in Remember The Titians. Have a good day!

Collider movie crew! Recently I’ve been trying to think of movies in different settings or just as a different genre, in reference to the 22 Jump Street/MIB crossover…Is there a movie that you think could possibly work or do better if the film was made for a different genre…Like Ghostbusters being turned into a horror film. Thanks and keep up the great work!
