According to a report from THR, Amy Schumer is in negotiations to star in Sony’s live-action Barbie movie.

A search is now on for a director with a release date targeted for summer 2018.

At the recent Comic Con Experience 2016 in Brazil, a short clip from Jon Watts‘ Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted and in it featured an upgrade to Spidey’s suit that looks to now include the under-the-arm web-wings from the classic comics. The description of the footage, thanks to Omelete, shows Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan asking if Tom Holland’s Peter Parker received a package from Tony Stark. The next scene shows Spider-Man on top of a building with the new, upgraded wing suit.

What do you all think about the trailer for Collateral Beauty? I think it looks like a fake movie like the one in Tropic Thunder. Could this secretly be a parody like The Happening? And how on earth did the movie assemble such a great cast: Will Smith, Helen Mirren, Naomie Harris, Ed Norton? Keira Knightley? Kate Winslet?!
