Tom teases Spider-Man’s adventure abroad in Far From Home

Tom teases Spider-Man’s adventure abroad in Far From Home

What happens when your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man ventures out of the neighborhood? Spider-Man: Far From Home follows teenager Peter Parker across the pond as he hangs up his Spidey suit for a class trip to Europe. If the Peter of 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming longed for more grown-up, world-saving responsibility, this Peter is a bit more willing to hang on to his youth and spend a few weeks not stopping supervillains.

“Peter’s ready for a vacation at the beginning of this movie, to say the least,” returning director Jon Watts tells EW of the hardworking hero. “This film is about the world telling him, ‘It’s time for you to step up and grow up, kid,’ and he’s saying, ‘But I still want to be a kid and go on vacation.’”

Unfortunately for Peter, the forces of evil have other plans. His attempts to prolong his childhood felt relatable to Holland and Watts, and relatability runs deep in Spider-Man’s veins (not unlike a certain radioactive spider venom). After all, most of us have more in common with an awkward kid from Queens than a golden Asgardian god or a de-iced World War II supersoldier. When Homecoming hit theaters two summers ago, Holland waded through comments on social media to see what fans most connected with and what he should explore in the sequel. The overwhelming answer was Peter’s approachability.

“Everyone really enjoyed the fact that throughout [Homecoming], there’s always something you can relate to with him,” Holland explains. “So in this film, especially, we tried to tailor the script in a way so that we could hit so many different relatable scenarios, so that not a single person in the world felt left out watching this movie.”

Still, not all Peter’s problems are universal. Despite his desire to lie low and explore London, Prague, and Venice with his friends, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) recruits him to help battle a mysterious quartet called the Elementals, who can manipulate nature. Since Peter doesn’t want to expose his secret identity by gallivanting around Europe in Spidey’s tights, Fury lends him an all-black stealth suit. (“It kind of looks like Black Widow — maybe it was one of her suits and they just tailored it,” Watts quips.)

Tom to star in Russo Brothers’ ‘Cherry’

Tom to star in Russo Brothers’ ‘Cherry’

With the culmination of the “Avengers” storyline on the horizon, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is in talks to star in the Russo brothers’ “Cherry,” which is expected to be the directing duo’s first feature non-Marvel gig. “Avengers: Endgame” helmers Joe and Anthony Russo will direct from a script by Jessica Goldberg, who adapted the novel “Exit West” for the brothers’ studio AGBO and was creator and EP of Hulu series “The Path.” AGBO acquired the rights to Nico Walker’s book, “Cherry,” in August, with plans to shoot over the summer.

“Cherry” parallels the true life story of the author, a former Army medic who returned from Iraq with extreme undiagnosed PTSD, fell into opioid addiction and began robbing banks. Walker was caught and convicted in 2011 and is scheduled to be released in 2020.

The brothers will produce along with AGBO’s Mike Larocca. AGBO has made its presence known as it continues to build its development slate. After it won the rights to “Cherry” following a highly competitive bidding war last summer, the pic became a top priority at the upstart studio. Holland became an easy choice for the lead role due to the trio’s involvement in “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Holland is reprising his role as Peter Parker in “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which bows this summer, and stars in Lionsgate tentpole “Chaos Walking.” Both the Russo brothers and Holland are repped by WME. Holland is also repped by The Curtis Brown Group.

We finally added amazing production stills from Tom’s movie The Current War! Check out the Gallery for 34 high quality photos! We also heard from THR that 13 Films has partnered with Lantern Entertainment, an affiliate of The Weinstein Co. buyer Lantern Capital Partners, to handle foreign distribution of the Harvey Weinstein-tainted historical epic The Current War. Initially due for release last November, Current War has gone without a domestic release date. The film, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, first bowed at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

The film focuses on the rivalry between electricity innovators Thomas Edison (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), was a casualty in last year’s fallout of the revelations about the disgraced movie mogul, who acted as producer on the project.

The first teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home is here! The film hits theaters July 5, and follows up the much-anticipated “Avengers: Endgame” — which makes its own debut April 26. “Spider-Man: Far From Home” picks up with Peter Parker appearing at a public event and then taking off for a summer vacation with friends in Europe — possibly without his signature Spider-Man suit. The overseas adventure starts out normal until Nick Fury  appears in Parkers’ room and recruits him for duty.

“You got gifts Parker, but you have a job to do,” Fury tells Parker. “Are you going to step up or not?”

The trailer goes on to show Mysterio, a longtime nemesis of Spider-Man, fighting off another villain who appears to be “Hydro-Man.” Check it out below! We added high quality screencaptures from the trailer and we also added a high quality still & poster from the movie!

Tom to star in Disney Pixar’s movie ‘Onward’

Tom to star in Disney Pixar’s movie ‘Onward’

Disney’s Pixar Animation Studios announced the title of its next feature-length project: Onward. The film will star Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer.

At last year’s D23, Pixar revealed that the plot would follow a world of “suburban fantasy,” populated by beings of fantasy stories like trolls, elves, centaurs and more. In this world, machines take the place of magic — so elves use cell phones and centaurs eat fast food. Instead of being mysterious, glamorous creatures, unicorns are racoon-like pests. Anthropomorphic trees grow in the middle of parking lots. “At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth, this film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.” said director Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) in a press release.

The plot will follow two teenage elf brothers (presumably voiced by Pratt and Holland) as they embark on a quest to see if there’s any magic left in the world.

Onward comes to theaters on March 6, 2020.

Spies in Disguise [Trailer + Promoshoot + HD Caps]

We’re kinda late on this because we had a lot of work and we weren’t unable to update before but Tom’s upcoming animated movie “Spies in Disguise” finally debuted its first trailer earlier this month and it looks amazing! It’s set to hit theaters on September 13, 2019 and is directed by Nick Bruno and Tony Quane. Check it out below. We added another promotional photo and ultra HD caps from the trailer!

“Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is… not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril. SPIES IN DISGUISE is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage.”
