Peter Rabbit Trailer Starring The Voices Of James Corden, Daisy Ridley & Margot Robbie

Could There Be Spider-Man Spin-Off Film In The Future?

We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works” involving characters and villains in the series, Sony Pictures Entertainment chief Michael Lynton told analysts in a Q&A session wrapping up his operation’s first meeting with investors. But he didn’t offer details, except that Sony is “working closely with Marvel and Disney.” But lest fans of the Marvel world take that to mean that Spider-Man could finally join his buddies in an upcoming The Avengers or other Marvel/Disney film — think again. Sony’s longtime rights deal with Marvel for Spider-Man allows them to exploit any character within the superhero’s universe — including villains, girlfriends or even Aunt May. But Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009, owns merchandising rights to Spider-Man and those related characters, so any further exploitation would have to involve Disney.

While Sony today promised to hold down costs, especially for films, Ly…

Ben Affleck & Matt Damon To Deliver Sleeper

Last we heard, way back in 2008, DC/Wildstorm Comics' Sleeper was in the capable hands of Sam Raimi. Development seemed to nod off and nothing ever came of the project, but it's now been picked up again by no less a producing partnership than Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. They're now putting the reawakened Sleeper together at Warner Bros. in cahoots with third producer Jennifer Todd.

The comic, by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, ran for a couple of years between 2003 and 2005, and involved several complex crossovers with the rest of the Wildstorm universe. It centers on Holden Carver, AKA The Conductor, who, thanks to contact with a weird alien artefact, developed ability to absorb and store pain, and then pass it on again. He starts out as an undercover infiltrator of the criminal mob run by The Tactical Augemented Organism (TAO), but ends up switching sides and turning genuinely gangsta. And then, Yojimbo-like, he starts to play both sides for his own ends.

Delivery Man Review. Is One Of Vaughn's Best Comedies In Years

Delivery Man Review By: MattInRC
The surprisingly warm and funny Delivery Man shows us Vince Vaughn can actually act.


Among my favorite performances of Actor Vince Vaughn's is 1996's Swingers - his portrayal of the party animal Trent introduced an entire culture obsessed with swing music and partying, as if the Roaring 20's had been suddenly resurrected. That was a long time ago, and what might have been a dynamic career has seen Vaughn pigeonholed into simple comedies, where his silly loser status overwhelms any dramatic acumen he once had. I'm not saying I want to see him read Shakespeare, but it's too bad he hasn't extended his wings a bit. Thankfully, his newest dramedy Delivery Man actually shows a side of Vaughn we haven't seen in awhile, and that's good news for us.


The underachiever David (Vaughn) can't seem to get his life together, running deeply in debt and frustrating his family and girlfriend Emma (Cobie Smulders). She sees potential…

Here's What We Think Of The New Futuristic Cop Show Almost Human

Here's what we think of the new futuristic cop show Almost Human. By: MattInRC
FOX's new futuristic procedural Almost Human needs a dash of humanity and a sprinkle of bad ass.


Things on television just aren't what they used to be. Not too long ago, premiere schedules were predictable - we sat down in September and enjoyed mostly new episodes clear through April, with season finales just in time for May Sweeps. Now, premieres seem to happen all year, forcing potential viewers to do more work than ever to keep up. Why this happens is something only for morons running FOX, CBS, NBC, and CBS can explain. How did FOX's November 17/18 premiere Almost Human stack up? We give you The Verdict below!

Show: Almost Human (FOX)

Time: Mondays, 8PM


The Concept: A rogue cop and his synthetic partner fight crime in the not-too-distant future.

The Verdict: Stories of trust between machine and man has been debated in Science Fiction for quite some time, with a balance generally struck …

Dallas Buyers Club Review. The Film Is Sure To Be An Oscar Contender, But We're Not Happy About It

Dallas Buyers Club Review By: MattInRC
Why does the raunchy Dallas Buyers Club have to be so...raunchy?


The intense and rowdy Dallas Buyers Club is uncomfortable to watch, not merely for its story about a 1986 Dallas bull rider stricken with AIDS (a particularly good Matthew McConaughey) and his attempts to bring medicine across the Mexican border, but for the line it crosses in the first minute. McConaughey's Woodroof is seen having sex in the bull stalls before a competition, while a fellow rider appears to die in the ring. For that time, such lewd behavior was probably normal, but soon he's using language that no reviewer can share to describe actor Rock Hudson's affliction and Woodroof's feelings about homosexuals. Cue the moment when a local doctor informs him that he too has contracted HIV, due entirely to a wild sex-drugs lifestyle that's left him emaciated and easily bruised. Woodroof decides it's time to seek treatment, which won't happen easily…

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review. Makes A Strong Case For Being Better Than The Original.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review By: MattInRC
The thoroughly enjoyable The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a gut punch that might be too much for younger audiences.


Sequels - and particularly sophomore efforts in a series - are hard to pull off. Expectations ran too high with Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, and in many ways Iron Man 2 and 3 have suffered the same fate. Others - like the predictable Grown Ups 2 - never grow beyond their scope, content to churn out a perfect duplicate while raking in the cash. Luckily, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire doesn't rest on the laurels of its older brother and excels in every way possible, delivering a powerful swing of the axe to our characters that reminds us of The Empire Strikes Back.


Set three months after the 74th Hunger Games, Fire shows us that not all is well across the 12 districts: protests and violent responses by The Capitol City and its dictator President Snow (Donald Sutherland) are on the rise, as is a growing re…
