Writers Hired For The New #SpiderMan Script

With Sony and Marvel joining forces to bring another iteration – albeit not an origin story this time – of Spider-Man to our screens, the elements needed to make the movie have been slotting into place. Tom Holland is aboard to play Peter Parker, Jon Watts will direct the film and now it appears the scriptwriters have been found, with John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein in negotiations.

The pair have had a meteoric rise in the last few years, graduating from writing and producing comedies such as The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and the Horrible Bosses films to co-directing the new Vacation movie. And while not everything they’ve written has been a success, it’s worth noting that several of their drafts were changed before the films hit screens.

There’s a chance that might happen with Spider-Man, as big tentpoles have a notorious habit of churning through script drafts and the writers who create them, but this pair has weathered the development storm on Vacation to get that one made.

As for the new Spider-Man, it’ll find him in high school, already established as the web-slinger and dealing with whatever life – and his various foes – throws at him, with Aunt May (Marisa Tomei has been in talks to take that role) helping out. We’ll get our first glimpse of the new Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War, which lands here on April 29 next year, with the still-untitled new Spider-film arriving July 28, 2018.

Movie Review: #Trainwreck

The hilarious Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow comedy needs an edit.

Review by Matt Cummings

If there's one thing that can be said about the Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow comedy Trainwreck, it's that it lovingly shows how hot-mess relationships can come clean and eventually endure. Unfortunately, its long runtime reduces what could have been the comedy of the year.

As a child of divorce, Amy (Amy Schumer) has been raised to believe that "monogamy isn't realistic," leading to a series of one-night stands that could establish a record in New York City. Prone to drinking, swearing, and generally making bad choices, Amy is a hot mess, until she meets the orthopedic surgeon Aaron (Bill Hader), as calm and normal as they come. Soon, Amy begins to fall in love with him, appreciating his down-to-earth style even though he rubs elbows with some of the finest athletes in sports (including LeBron James). But when a death in family further separates Amy from her sister (Brie Larson), Amy's relationship also takes a plunge, sending her on a downward spiral that only she can pull herself out.

Trainwreck features some of the best comedy of the year, allowing Schumer and several SNL alums the chance to strut their creative stuff. In many ways, we're witnessing comedic mastery unfold in many scenes, with Schumer directing traffic like a skilled cop. Her performance pops off the screen, as if her debut was just itching to get out. She is a breath of fresh air: larger than most wafer-thin actresses in Hollywood these days and missing their overly stylish perfection, Trainwreck paints Amy as horribly-flawed with a relationship phobia as big as New York. This might sound like I'm knocking her down, but it's quite the opposite. I appreciate her for those perceived shortcomings because it gives Amy a more realistic bend, especially when she's on her way down. Schumer is also hilarious, sporting dresses so short they look like she's missing pants and behaving quite out of control when it comes to sticking around after getting laid.

Hader proves that he can be a likable leading man, and that his time on SNL was well-spent. He should quickly become the poster boy for Apatow's laugh-out-loud comedic blueprint that makes today's Rom-Coms more palatable for guys. My other favorite is the least likely: LeBron James succeeds (as well as an athlete comedian can) and is actually funny in the several scenes between he and Hader. His overly sensitive persona as a man obsessed with Aaron's happiness is pitch perfect and never seems to go overboard. Tilda Swinson plays Amy's socially out-of-touch boss with the sort of jerk perfection you've come to expect from her, while the SNL troupe that includes Vanessa Bayer and Colin Quinn have their moments in the sun.

Director Judd Apatow does the best thing he can do with the script from Schumer, allowing her to 'McCarthy' it with plenty of ad-libs while keeping the predictable story intact. Yes, we all know how this is going to play out, but it's the comedy and performances that outweigh the sense that we've seen this before from other Apatow films like This is 40.

But allow me to be clear: Apatow has got to learn how to edit his movies. At 125 minutes, Trainwreck is way too long; the ending is really two (or even three), prancing beyond its effectiveness for additional laughs without realizing its original intent. There's examples of that all over the film, and it absolutely reduces my appreciation for it. Apatow could be the John Hughes of our time, bringing 40-somethings along for the ride while effectively portraying all the problems long-term relationships encounter. Instead, he consistently forgets that comedy is sometimes better in smaller doses, almost as if he thinks he's got something to prove.

The bigger question behind Trainwreck will be if audiences come to accept a sexually-available woman in the same way they accept a sexually-available man. The comedy is excellent, but its long runtime doesn't make an effective case for Amy's lifestyle. In many ways, a woman as prone to drinking and screwing as her should be in jail and without a lot of career options short of stripping and hooking. Had the story focused on this self-destructive behavior from the start, it would have made Amy's fall more realistic. Instead, it looks like someone fell off the wagon and hilariously screwed a ton on guys on the way down.

Trainwreck is rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, language and some drug use and has a runtime of 125 minutes.

Movie Review: 'Mr. Holmes'

Ian McKellen is terrific as the aging sleuth, but is it worth your time?

Review by Matt Cummings

With so much Sherlock Holmes in our lives today, the central question behind Sir Ian McKellen's latest Mr. Holmes is this: do audiences want to see a Sherlock Holmes near the end of his life? While that answer will play out in the theaters, its slow burn and story holes might ultimately keep people away that were expecting the Robert Downey Jr version.

Thirty years after retiring from solving crimes, the 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) has left urban London to settle at the seaside Kent. But the heroic sleuth is not well: hampered by growing dementia, Holmes is also haunted by his last case, in which a young husband's concerns of infidelity led to something far worse. As Holmes struggles to recount the event for a book he's writing, he must deal with the frosty Mrs. Munro (Laura Linney) and her bright Holmes-like son Roger (Milo Parker) who manage the Kent estate. With Roger in tow, Holmes must recount the real happenings behind his last case, before age and senility catch up with him.

This is a very different Sherlock from the Cumberbatch and RDJ versions: McKellen's sleuth is pensive, apprehensive, feeble. Those are words that some won't be able to equate with the character, but it's not the reduced state of Holmes that keeps it from succeeding. McKellen is terrific, imbuing his version with both refined style and frightening mortality. His is the Sherlock at the end of the journey, and McKellen executes the roadmap to Oscar-worthy perfection. Parker is another refreshing young actor who keeps the story from becoming too dark, his personality jumping off the screen from the moment we meet him. We've been treated to some fine performances this year by young people, and Parker could stand at the top of them. Linney does well enough, but I was left wanting more; perhaps it's the extraordinary chemistry of Parker and McKellen that makes hers look fairly pedestrian. Perhaps without them I would have appreciated her performance more.

Together with Cinematographer Tobias Schliessler, Director Gary Condon shoots a beautiful film, complete with sweeping vistas and authentic-looking Victorian cities and costumes that should land Designer Keith Madden an Oscar nod. The only concern I experienced was the pacing, courtesy of Writer Mitch Cullin's reworking of his novel A Slight Trick of the Mind. Even at only 104 minutes, there's a little too much fat left on the meat that drags on Jeffrey Hatcher's script. Several scenes are too long and a key scene in the hospital is rushed. Considering the almost rapacious relationship between Holmes and Munro, their resolution is a sudden stop instead of a gentle glide. A series of look-backs to 1917's Japan simply do not work and feel like a completely separate story that gets shoehorned in. Other elements are also hard to fathom, with Holmes' 30-year reclusiveness among them. He's a problem solver, a man who admits that he must be doing something, lest he feels unwanted. And yet, that's all the sleuth had done prior to his exodus to Kent. It's an odd sensation to experience a film that works so well on so many levels, yet suffers in areas you wouldn't expect.

Mr. Holmes is a textbook independent film, and perhaps that's the problem. If the slow-burn character studies of arthouse films are your thing, I recommend it. But this is neither a frenetically-paced action thriller nor particularly well-done character story with a surprising twist. Audiences expecting anything more will be immeasurably disappointed. Yet, don't be surprised to see a couple of Oscar noms come February; it certainly features several noteworthy examples.

Mr. Holmes is rated a refreshing PG for thematic elements, some disturbing images and incidental smoking and has a runtime of 104 minutes.

Movie Review: #AntMan

Ant-Man isn't the disaster that we feared but it's not an unqualified success either.

Review by Matt Cummings

Among the oldest Avengers in Marvel Comics, Ant-Man is also the least appreciated. He has neither the hammer nor the iron suit, and his ability to grow multi-stories or shrink to the tiniest proportions still didn't make him more popular compared to The Hulk. Thus when Marvel Studios announced a standalone Ant-Man movie, average viewers had every right to ask, "Who?" A troubled production almost from the beginning, the movie replaced its director/visionary Edgar Wright with comedic helmer Peyton Reed, and then proceeded to bore audiences, both at 2014's San Diego Comic-Con and with a less-than-memorable marketing campaign. And while the final version isn't the disaster I expected, it certainly misses a lot.

After the loss of his wife, Doctor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) decides to hang up his Ant-Man persona in order to keep it and his Pym Particles from being turned into a weapon. More than two decades later, Pym has been replaced as the head of his company by Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), who's figured out the formula and the technique Pym used to shrink himself. Faced with war on the micro level, Pym recruits the cat burglar Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to destroy Cross' facility using the Ant-Man suit. But Lang will need help, courtesy of the no-nonsense Hope (Evangeline Lilly) and Lang's roommates (including Michael Pena). When Cross discovers Lang's infiltration, he launches a war against his family, putting Lang's estranged wife (Judy Greer) and daughter in danger.

Ant-Man suffers from a slew of problems, most notably the lack of an emotional core. Director Reed never amps up the tension or reveals the cost that both Scott and Hank have paid for their lifestyles, settling instead on too many 'tell-you' scenes rather than 'show-you' ones. Reed's lightweight Down with Love and Yes Man never needed such seriousness in their stories, but Ant-Man suffers from an almost pedestrian feel. The story also shares many elements of 2008's Iron Man, but does none of them nearly as well. There's the madman executive who wants to rule the universe with a Civil War-like Iron Spider-man suit, an owner who fails to circumvent the madman's plans, and a violent throw down that destroys both their building and the bad guy. I can't imagine that Wright's version contained such similarities, but if so then it's understandable why he was shown the door. Unfortunately, those elements aren't corrected along with its utterly predictable storyline. We've seen plenty of examples this year of films that suffer from this problem yet still manage to entertain, and Ant-Man generally does. But we've become so used to Marvel's mastery that this one feels like a disappointment.

But its story isn't the only problem. Rudd is strangely de-clawed of any humor, content to mutter half the time while the writing core that includes Joe Cornish and Rudd seemingly check off the boxes for a laugh at the right time, then an action piece, then a few more jokes. Ant-Man's clash with a pseudo-Avenger doesn't feel as visceral as we're told it should, with that person's appearance having little impact to the story. Lilly does turn up the emotions at the right time, when she learns about the real cause of her mother's death, with Douglas suddenly laying it out for us in a transition that's terribly choppy. However, she and Douglas turn in good moments throughout, keeping the story afloat when it's just them; but then Rudd is added back to the mix, slowing things down again. What's also clear is that, short of Loki, Marvel cannot give audiences a memorable villain. Cross is perhaps the worst villain since Vanko in Iron Man 2, and Stoll portrays him with only a minority of effort. Greer's glorified cameo matches the one she gave in Jurassic World, arising as nothing more than a concerned mother and divorcee.

There are definitely elements of Wright's original script here (he's given credit as well), which include a few funny re-tellings of conversations with actors saying the same words as Pena is speaking over. However, the jokes didn't land with the smattering of a test audience that showed up, nor did those various dramatic elements. It's only near the end that Ant-Man becomes something truly unique, but that time is all too fleeting before an odd ending is shoehorned in, placing an emphatic question mark on the whole thing. The bigger question of whether a human could exist shrunken to an ant's world is handled fairly well, with Rudd forced to run so much that I wondered how he could escape things around him that were moving much faster. Considering that we've not seen shrunken people since Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, that CGI is believable.

It's possible that moviegoers in the know about Wright's departure will forever debate the merits of what could have been, thus placing Ant-Man in a sort of cinematic purgatory. For me, it's something I couldn't keep out of my head, perhaps because I kept imagining better versions of what I was watching. The question arises as to whether audiences will react with that same critical eye, or instead choose to ignore its self-destructive internal politics, the poor showing at Comic-Con, and a marketing campaign that could only be called blahse. Ant-Man is a game changer alright, but not in the direction Marvel or we had hoped.

Ant-Man is PG-13 for sci-fi action violence and has a runtime of 117 minutes.

Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo (Joel Edgerton) at first, but after a seemingly coincidental series of encounters proves troubling, a horrifying secret from their past is uncovered after nearly 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?

From the producer of Whiplash and The Purge, Jason Blum, comes a chilling psychological thriller that marks the feature directorial debut of acclaimed actor and writer Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty, Warrior).
