By Matthew Aguilar - December 5, 2019 11:32 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 It's been a rollercoaster ride for Spider-Man fans over the past year or so, as at one point Tom Holland's beloved hero was no longer attached to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after a semi-falling out between Disney and Sony. It seemed like we would never see him in the MCU once more, but eventually the two studios managed to get things worked out, and in a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel Holland revealed his part in the whole reunion, which started with a phone call that he was a little drunk during thanks to a night of trivia. Kimmel started off by bringing up the subject of how he helped bring the two parties together again and if he was responsible. "Sort of. I wouldn't say it was entirely my doing," Holland said. "I saved Spider-Man," Holland said with a smile before saying "no I didn't. We were at D23, which is the big Disney convention and the news had come out and I was obviously … [Read more...] about Drunk Tom Holland Saved Spider-Man

Studios' Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and we recently had the chance to chat with writer Ryan Parrott all about the new series. Issue #1 is in comic stores today, so if you've had a chance to check it out we've got all the spoiler-filled conversation right here. If you haven't read it yet, feel free to check out our spoiler-free review of the issue right here, and then just come back for the spoilery discussion. First up in our chat was how the issue handles Tommy, who is revealed to be part of the Foot Clan. Having Tommy play the villain is something we've seen before, so we had to ask if he was at all worried about taking that angle, but he promised there is far more to the story than what has been revealed thus far, and it will all make sense then. "It … [Read more...] about Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Writer Breaks Down TMNT Movie Influence, Tommy’s Decision, and More
We reported last week that Brad Pitt had sent the movie version of State Of Play into a tailspin after ditching the script following script worries.The move left the film struggling, as it needs a full cast in place in order to start shooting – particularly as several cast members (most notably Helen Mirren) have other acting commitments post-Play that can’t be moved.So what to do? Amazingly, it looks like the studio and director Kevin Macdonald spent their Thanksgiving holiday reaching out to Russell Crowe, in the hopes that he’ll fill the void. If he signs – and he hasn’t said yes yet – he’ll take on the part of a political expert-turned journalist who faces a conflict of interest when he investigates a murder tied to the mistress of his former boss, young, rising congressman Edward Norton. Oh, and he’ll also start an affair with Norton’s wife, Robin Wright Penn.The studio executives will be holding their breath and waiting for … [Read more...] about Will Russell Crowe join State Of Play?

By Liana 'LiLi' Ruppert - January 9, 2018 10:26 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 Anyone with eyes can see that the God of War franchise took a dramatic turn in both the lore of the game, and with many of the title's mechanics. Most notably was the shift in mythology and the welcome addition seeing Kratos on a new role: a father. Apparently this new shift was because Sony didn't want another God of War, so the team had to shake things up a bit to make the pitch worth supporting. Enter creative director Cory Barlog who was brought in for just that purpose, to 'break the rules' as he put it. Both Cory Barlog and Santa Monica Studio Head Shannon Studstill took a moment to talk about the franchise as a whole and how it came to be what we will be seeing later this year (hopefully): “I think you need to know the lineage. It’s a very deep storyline, and bringing in someone that understands that history is the respect the franchise deserves. We don’t want … [Read more...] about God of War Creative Director Says He Was Brought on to “Break the Rules”
