SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Gets a Unique Chinese Poster and Hot Toys Teases Their Action-Figure

With Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming on the horizon, we are going to start seeing more and more cool stuff from the film. Today we've got a fun and unique Chinese poster to share with you that looks like a piece of fan art. It comes from the Chinese Instagram account (via CBM) for the film and it shows Peter Parker running towards a school bus with his Spider-Man costume hanging out of his backpack. It's definitely different from anything else we've seen from the film, which is why I kinda dig it.

We've also got an image from Hot Toys teasing their 1/6 scale Spider-Man action figure. I've actually been looking forward to seeing the figures they come up with for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and this one looks like it's going to be awesome! They say that it's coming very soon.

Jon Watts is directing the film, and it has a strong cast that also includes Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. 

Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to be released in theaters on July 7th! 

Teaser Trailer Released for ATTACK ON TITAN Japanese Play

The theater scene in Japan has been popping lately! First we reported on a Naruto musical that will be traveling the glorious nation of Nippon, and now we have your first look at a play based on Attack On Titan! Take a look and continue on below: 

Sadly, no look at how they're going to recreate the giant titans the series is known for. For me, that's the part I want to see the most! This production is absolutely insane with over 150 actors cast in the play and a high budget. Needless to say, it'll be a trip to watch. It's a shame we likely won't see it here in the United States!

ALIEN: COVENANT Poster Encourages You to Hide, and a New Trailer Drops Tomorrow

alien-covenant-poster-encourages-you-to-hide-and-a-new-trailer-drops-tomorrow2

In anticipation of a new trailer being released tomorrow for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, Fox has released a new poster. The poster features an Ovomorph, which is the egg that contains a surprise Facehugger that will likely mark the beginning of the end fro the crew of the Covenant ship. The poster also encourages anyone who comes across these Ovomorphs to run and hide. 

I imagine the new trailer is going to be loaded with some great and insane new footage that reveals more story details. I loved the first trailer, and that alone got me excited to see this movie, but if they want to release more footage then I'll be happy to watch it! 

Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

The movie stars Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Jussie Smolett (Empire), Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills), Billy Crudup (Watchmen), and James Franco.

Alien: Covenant is set to open in theaters on May 19, 2017.

Mel Gibson Talks About His Meeting for SUICIDE SQUAD 2

Now that we know that Mel Gibson is in talks to direct Suicide Squad 2, the actor/director is speaking publicly about what exactly went down in his meeting with Warner Bros. Cinemablend reports that while it's all just "talk," right now, Gibson's words might be reason for fans to be excited...

"I don't know. I just met some guys about story points. It's not a done deal or anything but it's just fun to shoot the bull you know? When it comes to a story. I love doing it. And if we can elevate any kind of concept, it's good."

Sounds like things are in a very preliminary stage, but Mel Gibson sounds like he's down if something does arise out of these talks! After watching what he did with Hacksaw Ridge, I would love to see a Suicide Squad movie with the same direction. Anyone think Mel is a bad choice for the job?  

J.J. Abrams Thinks Mark Hamill Should Win an Oscar for His Work in THE LAST JEDI

Director J.J. Abrams thinks very highly of Mark Hamill's performance as Luke Skywalker in Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He thinks his performance is so good that he should win an Oscar.

While talking to NY Daily News at the Oscar Wilde Awards in L.A., the filmmaker said:

"I think we are all going to be very upset if he does not win an Oscar, and no one more upset than Mark."

We have yet to see Hamill fully back in the role of Skywalker, but this statement definitely has me excited to see what Hamill's performance will be like. Could you imagine if Hamill did win an Oscar? That would be incredibly cool! 

Having not seen the film, I have no idea if that really is a possibility, but I do trust Abrams' opinion on these kinds of things. He seems to have any eye for it. Of course, there's always the chance he might be joking around, but I don't think he'd joke around with a statement like that.

Abrams' comments also seem to indicate that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be Luke's movie, much in the same way that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was Han Solo's movie. I just he doesn't die at the end! 

What do you think about Abrams' comments about Hamill winning an Oscar? 

MOONLIGHT Star in Talks to Join Denzel Washington in Dan Gilroy’s INNER CITY

If you haven't seen Barry Jenkins' Best Picture-winning film Moonlight, you should absolutely check it out — not only because it's a gorgeous movie that advocates empathy in a time during which we must be empathetic as a society, but because it's already proving to be a launchpad for young talent. The Tracking Board reports that Ashton Sanders, who plays the teenaged version of Moonlight's lead character Chiron, is now in early talks to join Denzel Washington in a new movie called Inner City.

Inner City is the brainchild of Dan Gilroy, the guy who brought us the wonderful, underseen 2014 movie Nightcrawler (another film you should absolutely seek out if you haven't yet). This one is a legal thriller that centers around Washington's character, "a lawyer who discovers that his firm hasn’t always acted in accordance with his personal values, leading to an existential crisis that forces him to take extreme action." If Sanders' deal goes through, he'll play "an impressionable recent law school graduate who helps Washington with pro bono cases." Colin Farrell is already on board as well, so this is shaping up to have an excellent cast.

Nightcrawler was Gilroy's directorial debut, and he's writing and directing Inner City as well. He definitely hasn't steered me wrong yet, so I'm very excited about the potential of this movie and look forward to seeing it as soon as humanly possible.

Adam Savage Visits Weta to Show Us Some Cool GHOST IN THE SHELL Geisha Props and Animatronic Puppets

Adam Savage was invited to Weta Workshop to check out some of the awesome work that they did for the upcoming adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. While there he talked to Weta's Richard Taylor, who showed off what they came up with for the creepy robotic geisha that we've seen in the trailers. What's so cool about these is that they are all practical effects and props with mechanical geisha masks and animatronic puppets! It also shows how Weta Workshop used new fabrication and design technologies to make these props possible. 

I love seeing this kind of stuff! Weta has done some incredibly cool work here, and I think you're gonna like what they have to show off. After seeing the stuff in this video I want to see even more of the creative work they did for the film! 

Intriguing Teaser for Bong Joon Ho’s Netflix Film OKJA with Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal

Netflix has released a fascinating first teaser trailer for another great original film they've produced called Okja. The film comes from the director of the incredible film Snowpiercer, Bong Joon Ho, and it has an impressive cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Giancarlo Esposito, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, and newcomer Seo Hyun An

This grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.

This promo is just a brief tease of the story that the film will tell. The only two main actors it features are Swinton and Hyun An. We also get a close-up glimpse of the massive animal Okja. There's still a lot we don't know about the story, but this teaser certainly sets up the mystery and intrigue of it. I definitely want to see more! 

Netflix has got some great looking films coming out! Okja will premiere exclusively on Netflix on June 28.
