New featurette on the making of Spider-Man for PlayStation 4

Sony and Insomniac Games have released a new featurette on the making of Spider-Man, the PlayStation 4 exclusive that’s now in development.

Starring the world’s most iconic Super Hero, Spider-Man features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game. From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it’s Spider-Man unlike any you’ve played before.

Marvel and Insomniac Games have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man story. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met before, or seen in a movie. This is an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time he’s struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of nine million New Yorkers rests upon his shoulders.

An experienced Spider-Man with several years of crime fighting under his belt, Peter Parker has sheer mastery of his powerful spider-sense, dynamic skills, acrobatic abilities and new suit. This is an all-new Spider-Man universe, featuring familiar characters in unfamiliar roles. Take control of a complex dual life, as a young adult with great powers… and evolving relationships. Swing freely through Marvel’s New York City in epic action set-pieces filled with a rich narrative and relatable characters.

Marvel’s Spider-Man will arrive exclusively on PlayStation 4 in 2018.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Honest Trailer: With Great Power Comes No Consequences

Spider-Man: Homecoming Honest Trailer

Now that Spider-Man: Homecoming is out on home video (and Screen Junkies has taken care of their workplace sexual harassment scandal), we can take the time to enjoy some fun being poked at your friendly neighborhood wallcrawler.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming Honest Trailer has no problem reminding us that this is the second time the comic franchise has been rebooted this decade, not to mention honing in on the fact that this new millennial Spider-Man doesn’t ever really seem to suffer any consequences for his mistakes and ill-advised actions. Watch below!

Spider-Man: Homecoming, or The Perks of Being a Wallcrawler, takes a few jabs at the computer animated slug-fest that takes place between Spidey and Vulture in the sky and on the beach. Those confrontations pale in comparison to the one that takes place immediately after the true identity of Vulture is revealed later in the movie. It’s a spoiler that was kept hidden in the marketing and created audible gasps in theaters, and it works extremely well.

But perhaps the most glaring problem with Spider-Man: Homecoming is how it fits into the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. Looking at Tony Stark alone, it seems weird that the guy who was so adamant about the government keeping track of superheroes in Captain America: Civil War gives a teenager a superhero suit and doesn’t do all that good of a job keeping track of him until he creates problems.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is available now on home video, so go ahead and pick it up.

Sony Pictures Sets ‘Spider-Man’ Spin-Off ‘Silver and Black’ for 2019, Pulls ‘Bad Boys 3’ from Calendar

Sony Pictures - Columbia Pictures - Silver and Black Release Date

Sony Pictures is setting and shuffling a handful of release dates for upcoming movies in 2018 and 2019.

Sony and their Columbia Pictures banner have set a release date for their second Spider-Man spin-off Silver and Black, as well as the sequel to the hit drug trafficking thriller Sicario. Meanwhile,the release dates for Barbie and Bad Boys 3 have been shuffled around along with a few more projects in the coming years. Get the Silver and Black release date and more information below.

First up, Sony Pictures seems to be going on all in this separate Spider-Man universe that will not be tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nor involve the webslinger himself. After setting Venom starring Tom Hardy for an October 2018 debut, the studio has now staked out February 8, 2019 as the release date for Silver & Black.

For those who haven’t kept up with the title, Silver and Black will bring together two characters from Marvel Comics who frequently showed up in Spider-Man story arcs. There’s Silver Sable, a mercenary who hunts down war criminals, and Black Cat, a master thief not unlike Catwoman whose secret identity is Felicia Hardy, a character who became a love interest for Peter Parker in the comics. Beyond the Lights director Gina Prince-Bythewood is slated to direct, but we have no details on the story just yet.

Next, Sony Pictures also brought some bad news for Bad Boys fans eagerly awaiting a reunion of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Though the sequel titled Bad Boys for Life had been set for November 9, 2018, it has now been removed from the calendar entirely with no replacement date named yet. The movie has been pushed back several times now, and it’s starting to feel like a pipe dream rather than a project that will actually happen.

There will still be some action to behold from Sony in 2018 though as the Sicario sequel directed by Stefano Sollima has been slated to arrived on June 29, 2018. The film has been officially called Sicario 2: Soldado, and it brings back Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin from the first movie, but Emily Blunt is sitting this one out.

Meanwhile, a few films have been delayed on Sony’s release calendar. The big screen Barbie movie has been pushed back to August 8, 2018 from a previous June 2018 date. Alethea Jones is still set to direct with Anne Hathaway playing the title doll from Mattel. Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren‘s feature film debut The Nightingale will arrive on January 25, 2019 instead of the previous August 2018 date, and the comedy Holmes and Watson with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the detective duo (respectively) will now arrive on November 9, 2018 instead of the previously set August 2018 date.

Sony Pictures hasn’t had the best year in 2017, so hopefully their schedule for 2018 will offer up more positive results for them at the box office. Unfortunately, they won’t have an official new Spider-Man movie to help them, but maybe Venom will work out for them instead.

Why Sony & Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is the Perfect Reboot

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man finally swung home. Back in February of 2015, I wrote about why Spider-Man swinging back to Marvel Studios would be a good thing for the famed webslinger. Now, two years later, we have Spider-Man: Homecoming, the sixth Spider-Man film that actually feels like the first. The film, which stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as The Vulture, is exhilarating, extremely well-made and most excitingly of all, refreshing. It shows how you properly reboot a character like Spider-Man, cementing Kevin Fiege and Marvel Studios as creative powerhouses who truly care about these characters. Let’s take a look at why Homecoming was the perfect Spidey reboot – and what’s in store for him after this. ›››

Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming fell just a bit shy of the $ 120 million mark it was looking like it would hit after Friday estimates, but nevertheless the webslinger still delivered a stellar opening, delivering the third largest opening weekend of the year so far.
