Under the Silver Lake

A24, the company behind some of the best independent films like Moonlight, has released the first trailer for Under the Silver Lake.

Starring Andrew Garfield, the film is David Robert Mitchell‘s follow up to It Follows. But rather than give us another terrifying metaphor, we are treated to a quirky neo-noir flick that sees Garfield searching all over Los Angeles for a missing girl. Check out the latest trailer below.

Hacksaw Ridge Blu-ray review

Hacksaw Ridge
Blu-ray l DVD l 4K Ultra HD
Director: Mel Gibson
Screenwriter: Andrew Knight and Robert Schenkkan
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, Vince Vaughn
Distributor: Summit Entertainment
Rated PG | 104 Minutes
Release Date: February 21, 2017

I’m not one for the over-dramatized, based on a true story kind of movie. But for most of them, there is something special and inspirational that makes me want to know more about the subject’s story. Case in point, Hacksaw Ridge.

Now I didn’t know anything about Desmond Doss’ harrowing story of how he refused to take up arms during World War II, but ended up saving multiple lives during the Battle of Okinawa. But to see it on the big screen was something else. The fact that it was also directed by Mel Gibson did add some concern to it, given his outrageous behavior and reputation. Still, the film managed to meet my expectations. Check out my review below.

Movie Review: Martin Scorsese's Silence

Silence
Director: Martin Scorsese
Screenwriter: Jay Cocks, Martin Scorsese
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Tadanobu Asano, Yosuke Kubozuka, Shin’ya Tsukamoto, Liam Neeson, Ciarán Hinds
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 161 Minutes
Release Date: December 23, 2016 (Limited)

“Lord, why are you silent? Why are you always silent?”

In 1988, at a screening for religious leaders of his new film The Last Temptation of Christ, Martin Scorsese was approached by Archbishop Paul Moore, the Episcopal Bishop of New York, who presented the filmmaker with a copy of Shūsaku Endō’s acclaimed novel Silence.

Published in 1966, the novel is the story of Jesuit missionaries sent to 17th century Japan, where they endure persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan (“Hidden Christians”) that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion, an uprising of Catholic Christian peasants during the Tokugawa shogunate’s rule.

Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man

This deal just keeps getting better all the time. Disney has deep pockets, you’d think that Sony would ask the rival studio to pony up some cash to regain the rights to Spider-Man. Well, if you’re already thinking of a number in the billions, you might want to take it down all the way to zero.

Hours after it was announced that Disney would be “sharing” Spider-Man with Sony, details about the deal are being revealed. First up came info regarding when Spidey might make his Marvel debut, whether Andrew Garfield will still be playing the role of Spider-Man, and if the Sinister Six movie was still on or not.

Now new details have arrived, this time revealing some of the financial details of the deal and the status of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and other spinoffs like Venom. More on all of this after the jump.

Spider-Man News: Marvel Debut, Andrew Garfield, Sinister Six, More

Last night the comic book world experienced a shake up when it was confirmed that Marvel and Sony made a deal to share Spider-Man. Marvel will not have full rights to the character, as Sony still retains the marketing and final creative control. However, studio head Kevin Feige will co-produce alongside Amy Pascal.

News of a “new Spider-Man” being introduced brought up a couple of questions about the current Spider-Man. The current franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, has already had two films and launched potential spinoffs. The press release used the word “new” meaning that everything we have come to know about The Amazing Spider-Man and its potential spinoffs are moot.

But a new report suggests otherwise, and that some things are changing while others will remain the same. Hit the jump to find out more.

the amazing spider-man 2 andrew garfield

As expected, we are learning more about Sony’s plans to share Spider-Man with Marvel since news of the studio’s e-mail hacking scandal broke in late November. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 underperforming at the box office, and Sinister Six and Venom spinoff films showing no signs of development, the once lucrative franchise was beginning to look more like a lost cause. So would make sense for Sony to share the character with Marvel. It’s definitely a move that would benefit both studios. But as we all know, there was a fallout, and any plans to share the webslinger never came to be.

However, had those talks ended successfully, we would have seen Spider-Man make his big Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War. But we wouldn’t see the current Spider-Man, played by Andrew Garfield, in the sequel. According to reports, this would be a different actor playing Spider-Man, who is already an established character in the MCU. Hit the jump for more.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Header Image

There is just no end to the Spider-Man franchise rumors. Yesterday, we reported that Sony might be willing to let Marvel use the character in attempts to reestablish him as the lucrative franchise character he was while Sam Raimi was directing. While it is a long shot, it is definitely a move that would benefit both houses, but also should be a huge service to fans.

Now comes a new rumor that Sony is rebooting the franchise yet again, but that it will be a “soft reboot.” There are also murmurings of the Alex Kurtzman-directed Venom being cancelled. Hit the jump to learn more.
