‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Director Jon Watts Will Return for the Sequel

And in other Spider-Man news…It looks like Sony and Marvel are just as pleased as the rest of us with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Following the box office success of the web-crawler’s latest reboot, the studios are reportedly sticking with director Jon Watts for the untitled sequel, slated to hit theaters in 2019. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait that long to see Tom Holland’s charming high school superhero back on the big screen, as the actor is set to reprise the spectacular role in Avengers: Infinity War.

‘Poltergeist’ Truther Movement Continues With New Claim That Steven Spielberg Actually Directed It

In what has now become something of a bi-annual tradition in Hollywood, yet another person has come forward with yet another claim that Steven Spielberg was the real director of Poltergeist. This time around it’s John Leonetti, the filmmaker behind the new horror film Wish Upon, who outs himself as a Poltergeist truther with his not-entirely-shocking assertion about who actually directed Tobe Hooper’s spooky 1982 classic.

‘Leatherface’ Red Band Trailer Teases the Bloody Origins of ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’

Like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, the latest installment in the franchise is yet another prequel exploring the blood-soaked origins of the iconic horror movie villain. As you can see in the first, long overdue trailer for Leatherface, this one features a scene in which the eponymous character’s mother (Lili Taylor) presents the famous weapon of choice to her son on his birthday before he even has a chance to enjoy some cake. You aren’t going to find a scene like that in the previous prequel, that’s for sure.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese Reportedly Reuniting for True-Crime Thriller

Back in 2015 (so very long ago, I know), it was reported that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were developing a new film about notorious 19th century serial killer H.H. Holmes based on the Erik Larson book Devil in the White City. Although we’ve heard little about that project in the time since, it appears that Scorsese and his muse are plotting to reunite for another true-crime thriller, this one set in the 1920s and based on a book by Lost City of Z author David Grann.

Blake Lively Lands Female Spy Franchise From ‘Bond’ Producers, ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Director

When Atomic Blonde premiered at SXSW back in March, one of the recurring complaints, even from those who enjoyed the film, was that Charlize Theron’s cool Cold War spy thriller could’ve benefited from a female director. It looks like we won’t have to wait very long to see that theory put to the test, as Blake Lively has signed on to headline a female-led spy franchise from the producers behind the James Bond series and the director of The Handmaid’s Tale.

‘Darkest Hour’ Trailer: Gary Oldman Is Barely Recognizable as Winston Churchill

For his next trick, watch as Gary Oldman disappears into the role of Winston Churchill in the new trailer for Darkest Hour. The famously dedicated actor has made himself almost unrecognizable as the former Prime Minister in the upcoming World War II drama, and if it weren’t for all his shouting, you might not even know it was him at all. All that impressive makeup makes it pretty difficult to focus on anything else, but the trailer for Darkest Hour does its damnedest to distract you from the distraction with some Very Intense music.

Disney Can’t Seem to Find Actors for Guy Ritchie’s Live-Action ‘Aladdin’

Disney has several live-action remakes in development, but two titles in particular have attracted a little extra attention: Aladdin and Mulan. Although pop culture is becoming increasingly socially conscious, Hollywood’s unfortunate history of whitewashing has left many (rightfully) concerned over the casting for both of these films, especially since the studio behind them doesn’t exactly have the best track record with diversity. And while Disney has made it clear that they’re committed to casting actors of relevant ethnicity in Aladdin and Mulan, a new report reveals that the studio is struggling to do so for at least one of those projects.

Tom Cruise Gets the Gang Back Together in New ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Photo

Look, we’re already pretty pumped for the next Mission: Impossible sequel — with Christopher McQuarrie at the helm, both Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan on tap, and all this talk of Tom Cruise performing his most daring stunt yet, we’re more than adequately excited. All those sneak peeks McQuarrie & Co. have been sharing from the set of the sixth installment are just a series of added bonuses.

Jeremy Renner Won’t Let Some Broken Bones Get in the Way of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Of the two ensemble films Jeremy Renner is currently shooting, you’d think the one that isn’t an action-packed superhero flick wouldn’t result in a couple of broken bones — but that’s exactly what happened to the Marvel star on the set of the upcoming comedy movie Tag, which centers on a group of friends that have been participating in an intense 30-year version of the titular game. Seems like something along the lines of Avengers: Infinity War would involve a greater risk of physical injury. You would think that, and you would be wrong.
