Spider-Man: Far From Home

“What I did for summer vacation” reports are usually generic recaps of what kids did during their time off. So why not take that concept and make a superhero blockbuster. That’s what Marvel Studios is doing for Spider-Man: Far From Home, the follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, which Marvel released a teaser trailer for today.

Tom Holland returns to play Peter Parker, otherwise known as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Except, he’s not going to be swinging around Queens. He will be going crossing the Atlantic where he will be facing off against elemental villains with the help of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and a new ally named Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). Check out the trailer along with a poster below.

The First Purge

The First Purge
Director: Gerard McMurray
Writers: James DeMonaco
Cast: Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez, Marisa Tomei
Studio: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 97 Minutes
Release Date: July 4, 2018

It’s funny how current events can influence a film. Okay, maybe not now. Especially not now considering what is happening to this world. But somehow The Purge film franchise has been able to sustain itself by using socioeconomics as a narrative device. For three films we have seen the dangers of what could happen if, for one night, all crime, including murder, was legal. It’s the kind of satirization that is so shocking it’s on the verge of becoming real. Each film took a different perspective of the privileged and disenfranchised trying to survive a night where no one would be punished for their crimes. Although it was fictional, it was hard to ignore some of the parallels the film had with today’s society. Some might say the film wasn’t too far off foreseeing what will happen.

But now we live in a different time, and The First Purge takes a look at the beginning and how it all started. The funny thing is, this new installment draws so much inspiration from the previous 18 months that it is simultaneously scary and funny, all the while continuing to being one of the most inclusive films to date by giving minorities and people of color some of the most exciting action sequences. Check out my full review of The First Purge here below.

‘The First Purge’ Trailer: How A Night Of Lawlessness All Began

The First Purge

The concept of The Purge makes for a very intriguing film while also having us question the socio-economic disparities that exist today. It is a modern-day slasher with a political twist. During the franchise, we got to see how the rich were able to protect themselves while also taking part in killing, while those who were unable to afford such luxuries were forced to fend for themselves or also take part in the lawless night.

Now, we will get to see that world once more in The First Purge. A new trailer for the prequel has just dropped, which will chronicle how it all began. Check it out here below.

‘The First Purge’ Teaser & Poster Send A Polarizing Message On Night Of The State Of The Union

The Purge: Election Year banner

Underneath the gruesomeness of The Purge lies an underlining message about class, race, and status. The rich could afford the protections needed to survive an entire night’s worth of committing crimes without having to worry about the law, while the lower class has to fend for themselves. It was definitely one of the more unconventional horrors. With Blumhouse’s reputation for low-budget films, the success of it helped turn that Purge into a full-blown trilogy.

However, we never really saw how the Purge came to be. We just knew that it was created in order to lower crime. Now the series will explore the original purge in a film appropriately titled The First Purge. And based on the newly released teaser video and poster, you know it’s going to make waves. Check it out below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming
Written by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley & Jon Watts & Christopher Ford & Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers
Directed by Jon Watts
Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr.
Sony Pictures
Release date: July 7, 2017

The general consensus amongst critics and die-hard comic book movie fans alike is that no matter how great the MCU films get, the pinnacle of the genre was achieved back in the early 2000s with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man 2 (2004). Interestingly enough, two of the dirt worst superhero movies since then also featured the webslinger: Raimi’s awful Spider-Man 3 in 2007, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014, which killed the rebooted franchise before it could even make the planned Sinister Six film it spent 2 hours setting up. Marvel Studios and Sony were able to come to an agreement since that debacle, which led to the best Spidey on screen in 12 years with Tom Holland’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War last year. A year later, Sony & Marvel again united to bring us Spider-Man: Homecoming, and maybe because I’m writing this an hour after seeing it, without time to properly marinate… but Homecoming is the best standalone Spider-Man movie since… ever.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Starbucks Pranks

We’re just a little over a week from the launch of the first movie in Sony Pictures’ latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming, this time with a little help from Marvel.

To help promote the movie a fun little prank was set up, as is quite the popular viral marketing technique these days. For this one, customers at a Starbucks in New York City are first confused when the barista calls out Spider-Man’s name for an order, and then surprised when Spidey himself drops down from the ceiling to pick it up. There’s even a cameo from a familiar face.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #3

In the two film franchises that Spider-Man has been in, never has his suit been as technologically advanced as the one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though we didn’t see much of those advancements in Captain America: Civil War, it was a definite upgrade when compared to the homemade Spidey suit and goggles.

But Spider-Man: Homecoming will put all of the tech that Iron Man put into the suit on full display. And based on the new trailer, not only are there about 500 different ways to websling but there are also other tools that are at the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’s disposal. Check out the latest trailer for the film below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Michael Giacchino is, without a doubt in my mind, one of the best composers for film and television working today. Last year alone saw him apply his inventive musical chops to the popular blockbuster hits Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Well the man is back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this summer as he is providing the score for the much-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming. As a little treat to close out this unadulterated whirlwind of a week on the planet Earth, Giacchino has released a brief snippet from his Homecoming soundtrack, which he recently completed. Longtime fans of Marvel Comics’ friendly neighborhood superhero will very likely recognize this upbeat number.
