5 Best Bruce Campbell Roles

5 Best Bruce Campbell Roles You know his name. You’ve heard his voice. Probably, you’ve made fun of his chin. For almost 40 years, Bruce Campbell has been a pop culture icon. He has appeared in countless movies and TV shows. He’s even written books! The name ‘Bruce Campbell’ has transcended any of the characters he’s played, save for maybe one. Bruce Campbell has been an icon to nerds the world over since the ’80s. And, like a fine scotch, he has only gotten older with time. His self-deprecat...

Sony says it has 7 years of Marvel movies mapped out — here are all the details on what to expect

Sony will be the only studio besides Disney to own film rights to Marvel characters after the Disney-Fox merger closes. Sony Pictures Television chairman Mike Hopkins told Variety this week that Sony has " the next seven or eight years laid out" for its Marvel universe. The franchise found new life last year with the success of "Venom," which grossed $855 million worldwide. Come next week, only two movie studios will own film rights to Marvel Comics characters. Disney, which owns Marvel, i...

POLL: Should Tim Burton and Michael Keaton Make a Third Batman?

BEGIN SLIDESHOW POLL: Should Tim Burton and Michael Keaton Make a Third Batman? Director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton redefined the nature of superhero films with his dark, gothic take on The Caped Crusader with 1989’s Batman. In 1992 they re-teamed for the more idiosyncratic sequel Batman Returns, but never got to round out the trilogy as both passed on 1995’s Batman Forever. Now that the original Batman is turning 30 this year, should Tim Burton and Michael Keaton reunite for one ...

‘The Things They Carried’ Movie Coming From ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Director Rupert Sanders

The Things They Carried, a book I’m sure many of us read in a high school Lit class, is getting the big screen treatment. Rupert Sanders, director of Snow White and the Huntsman and the ill-received live-action Ghost in the Shell, will direct a film based on Tim O’Brien‘s book of short stories about the Vietnam War. Scott B. Smith, author (and screenplay adapter) of both A Simple Plan and The Ruins, will tackle the script. Collider has the scoop on The Things They Carried movie. Tim O’Brien’...

Tom Cruise and James Cameron Were Almost in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’

Ezra Miller Still Thinks ‘The Flash’ Movie is Happening, Teases a “Speedster Multiverse”

The DC film universe over at Warner Bros. is in a constant state of flux, and it’s safe to say that the original plan for a series of interconnected films has gone out the window. The Snyderverse, as it was unofficially known, is dead, and DC and WB are now more focused on getting individual films right rather than emulating the Marvel model. So where does that leave the superheroes that were already set up in Zack Snyder’s films? Both Aquaman and Wonder Woman have gone on to their own successf...

‘Evil Dead 2’ 4K Trailer Is Ready to Swallow Your Soul

Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 are very different films, even if they’re essentially telling the same story. Sam Raimi‘s first Evil Dead is attempting to be a serious horror movie, while Evil Dead 2 slips into slapstick comedy territory. That slapstick angle seems to be the one people remember the most when they think of Evil Dead, making the sequel the far more prominent film. Now Studio Canal is releasing an Evil Dead 2 4K Blu-ray in the 4K, and there’s a new trailer ready to swallow your soul. Wa...

Marc Webb's '​The Amazing Spider-Man​' Is a Reboot That Deserves a Rewatch

None Spider-Man 3 (2007) was a disappointment to pretty much everyone, including director Sam Raimi. Although financially successful due to a surprisingly large worldwide gross (it remains the highest-grossing Spider-Man film worldwide), the messy narrative failed to live up to the standards of Raimi's celebrated first two films. In late 2007, Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst signed on to Spider-Man 4, James Vanderbilt was hired to write the screenplay, and an early May 2011 rele...

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Could’ve Had a Scene With Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland

In early December, we wrote about how former Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire was once in consideration to play Peter B. Parker in Sony’s Oscar-nominated animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. That role as an older, out of shape web-slinger eventually went to New Girl actor Jake Johnson, but Maguire wasn’t the only former Spider-Man to be on a wishlist for the acclaimed animated feature. It turns out that Andrew Garfield, who played Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man movies, and Tom ...

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars Many people live vicariously through movies. It always helps when audience members have something to relate to, whether it be a character, situation, or time period. Pretty much anyone can relate to the feeling of being behind the wheel of a car, hearing the engine roar and cruising down a two-lane blacktop. While some folks merely use cars as tools to get around, others consider cars a passion. It’s the same for filmmakers. Many treat the vehicles in their films...

Review: Shyamalan's 'Glass' Shatters Expectations with Strong Themes & Powerhouse Performances

Peter Sciretta’s Top 15 Movies of 2018

2018 has come to a close and I have finally been willing to commit to a list of this year’s best movies. Unlike the rest of the /Film staff, I decided to post a top 15 instead of a top 10, and I’ll explain why. I don’t think this was a great year for movies, but it was a very good one. Many of the films in this list are on nearly equal footing. I recently went back and rated and ranked films through the last decade and a half, and that gives me some perspective. If you were to look at my rating...

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a Superhero Movie About the Power of Art

Miles Morales is an artist. We’re introduced to the movie version of Miles (Shameik Moore) as he sits at a drawing table sketching a sword-wielding robot. On his way to school, he slaps custom sticker tags on street signs where he hopes his father, a police officer, won’t find them. When he wants to express the vastness of the shoes he has to fill — the “great expectations” of his elite schooling academy — he ventures underground with his uncle Aaron (Mahershala Ali) and creates ornate graf...

Into the Spider-Verse Lifted a Key Line of Dialogue from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man

Because Spider-Man: into the Spider-Verse is primarily about Miles Morales and not Peter Parker, the film is very careful about how it tosses around Uncle Ben’s famous words about “great power” and “great responsibility” so as not to distract from the movie’s central narrative focus. But a new revelation adds more…Read more...

Every Spider-Man Movie and TV Show Explained By Kevin Smith

Look, I’ve never been a fan of Kevin Smith’s ooooooov-rah, per se, but I will never criticize his ability to spin a bloody good yarn. He’s funny, engaging, charming, and knows his pop culture. WIRED also knows this, so when on the eve of the (apparently very good) Spider-verse movie, they called on Smith to sit down and run through every Spider-man Movie and TV Show and opinionate all over that mess. (And because Sony’s contract with the Marvel superhero is up, this might be a nice demar...
