‘Spider-Man 4’ Fight Animatic Shows Off an Action Scene From Sam Raimi’s Abandoned Sequel

The year was 2010. Casting news was ramping up about Spider-Man 4, the fourth installment of director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film series for Sony Pictures. John Malkovich was tapped to play The Vulture, and Anne Hathaway was in talks to play Felicia Hardy – who, in this iteration, would not have been the catsuit-wearing thief Black Cat, but would instead be the daughter of The Vulture known as The Vulturess. That movie came crashing down and Sony ultimately moved on to Marc Webb’s The Amazing S...

A Quiet Place II Steals In the Heights’ Thunder at the Box Office

A Quiet Place II continued to dominate the domestic box office with $11.65M in its third weekend, enough to push it over the top of the highly anticipated In the Heights musical from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, which pulled in a ho-hum $11.4M and landed in second place.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Review

Ratchet & Clank has been a PlayStation staple since its inception in 2002, gracing every major Sony platform — aside from the PS1 — in some form.
