‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ revealed as the title of the web-slinger’s next solo adventure

Despite the shocking turn of events that took place during the finale of Avengers: Infinity War, it seems likely that many of the characters who seemingly died at the end of the most recent chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will probably be just fine, mostly because they have movies of their own coming out in the very near future.

One of those characters is Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, who already has a second solo-web slinger movie dated for July 5, 2019, and, thanks to Holland himself, we now know the title for the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, which the actor revealed in an Instagram video over the weekend.

“I wanted to apologize because there are no real revelations coming out about Spider-Man 2 this weekend,” Holland says in the video, which he captioned “sorry for no announcements,” before revealing the title, Spider-Man: Far From Home, on an iPad he’s holding. “I don’t know much about it.”

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently told io9 that principal photography on the film is expected to begin in July in London, adding that, although the studio shoots a lot of films in London, the sequel will find Peter Parker spending some of his time in other parts of the globe outside his native Queens.

Spider-Man: Homecoming cast members Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, and Jacob Batalon will all be returning for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which recently cast Jake Gyllenhaal as the classic Marvel supervillain Mysterio.

Sorry for no announcements, but I love you guys ♥️

Oh god, the cast of Mel Gibson’s very unnecessary remake of ‘The Wild Bunch’ is actually pretty good

As if I wasn’t already Mad Online™ enough today, Deadline has broken the news that Michael Fassbender, Jamie Foxx, and Peter Dinklage are all in talks to join the cast of Mel Gibson’s remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1969 Western classic The Wild Bunch.

Gibson is co-writing the movie along with Bryan Bagby, who has not had a credit on any film since 2000’s L.I.N.X. (whatever the fuck that is), in addition to executive producing. It’s his first directing effort since 2016’s Hacksaw Ridge.

Now, don’t get me wrong—Fassbender, Foxx, and Dinklage are all incredible actors in their own right. The problem here, though, isn’t them. It’s the fact that I don’t think a movie like The Wild Bunch needs to be remade in any capacity whatsoever, especially not by the likes of Mel Gibson.

As we’ve pointed out on this site several times before and will continue to do so every time Gibson’s name comes up, the dude has a troubling history that includes domestic abuse, homophobia, and racist and anti-Semitic tirades. If you need to be reminded of all of the terrible shit he’s said over the years, check out this list compiled by Gawker.

The fact that Gibson is able to just disappear from the spotlight for a few years, come back, and suddenly be able to find all of the work that he’s finding is absolutely astonishing. Warner Bros. really couldn’t get another, less problematic director to helm this project? Like, literally anybody other than Mel Gibson?

Anyway, no word yet on when The Wild Bunch is set to be released, but production on the projection is expected to get underway this fall, so it seems likely we’ll be seeing this thing by sometime next year at the earliest.

Nicolas Cage is going to star in a ‘hardcore cop thriller’ written by the dude who wrote ‘Green Book’

You all remember Nick Vallelonga, the Oscar-winning Green Book screenwriter and producer who deleted his Twitter account last year after old tweets of his resurfaced in which he pushed Donald Trump’s debunked claim that Muslims could be seen cheering in New Jersey on 9/11, right?

Well, in a bit of rather unfortunate news, IndieWire is reporting that Vallelonga is partnering with none other than Nicolas Cage on his next project, 10 Double Zero, which is described as a “hardcore cop thriller that mixes the grittiness of old school Michael Mann with the cutting-edge style of Sicario.” Yeah, let that sink in for a minute.

Per the film’s official synopsis: “Set in the stifling heat of Louisiana, two police officers take on a personal vendetta to hunt down cop killers, but as they get closer to solving the crime, they find themselves targets of a conspiracy in the ranks of the police force as the investigation leads right back to them.”

Heh, a conspiracy, you say? Vallelonga seems to know a thing or two about those.

Anyway, on a serious note, is this the punishment the world gets for sleeping on the hypnotic masterpiece that was Mandy last year, which features what is arguably the best performance we’ve ever seen from Nicolas Cage? Is this what we get for giving a dude who pushes racist bullshit on social media a bunch of Oscars earlier this year?

I mean, come on. Anything other than this shit.

Watch the first six minutes of Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut ‘Booksmart’ in all of its uncut glory

Ahead of the special early access screenings happening tonight, Annapurna Pictures has released the first six minutes of Olivia Wilde’s raucous delight Booksmart, which premiered to rave reviews at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year and still has a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Told from a wildly original, fresh and modern perspective,” Booksmart follows two academic prodigies (Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein) who, on the eve of their high school graduation, realize that they should have spent less time studying and more time having fun like some of their peers.

So, in an effort to make up for everything that they missed out on in high school, the girls decide to cram four years worth of fun into one single, batshit crazy night that is filled with partying, sex, and lots and lots of booze. Oh, and they might even commit a crime or two along the way, because why not?

Look, I’m not going to rave too much here because I want you to have the pleasure of discovering this wonderful gem of a film for yourself, but all I’m going to say is that the cast, which also includes the likes of Lisa Kudrow, Jason Sudeikis, and Will Forte is absolutely incredible, and the script is so sharp and witty and flawlessly directed by Olivia Wilde and it’s still so hard for me to believe that this is only her debut. If Booksmart doesn’t manage to nab a spot somewhere on my year-end list, I’ll be shocked.

Check out the first six minutes of Booksmart below in all of its uncut glory and be sure to grab a ticket to one of tonight’s early access screenings, because this movie is one that you certainly don’t want to miss. Take my word for it.
