    Your thoughts on this movie....

    Spider-Man crosses parallel dimensions and teams up with the Spider-Men of those dimensions to stop a threat to all reality.

    Seems Peter Parker Is In “Spider-Verse”


    seems-peter-parker-is-in-spider-verse-696x464.jpg


    It turns out Peter Parker will be a part of the upcoming animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” feature, but not in the way you might think.

    Writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller appeared at the Comic-Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil this past weekend where they revealed new details about the project which is confirmed to have NO connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (so no Tom Holland voice cameo).

    We also know the film focuses on the Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) incarnation of the character and it will be an inter-dimensional adventure film so the idea of other Spider-Mans will be included.

    The surprise reveal though is that the character of Peter Parker DOES show up in the inter-dimensional adventure film albeit as a middle-aged man. This Parker will serve as a mentor to the youngster and the film will revolve around him ‘passing the baton’.

    No word as to whom will voice the role, though one person who has put his hand up is “Hannibal” and “Rogue One” star Mads Mikkelsen who tells IGN this week that if he could play one superhero he “would love to play, that would be an older version of Spider-Man…So if at any time they can live with my funny accent and an older Spider-Man, I’ll do it. Peter Parker is a fun character.”

    “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” opens December next year.

    “Spider-Verse” Trailer Was A Big Success


    spider-verse-trailer-was-a-big-success-696x464.jpg


    The first full trailer for the animated “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” film has clocked up 44 million views since it was released on Tuesday making it one of the studio’s most viral videos in its first 24-hours.

    The film had a ‘viral rate’ of 32:1. That’s ahead of the teaser trailer’s 11:3, and “LEGO Batman” with 11:4. The trailer generated 164K social conversations and 26 million views across all social platforms.

    Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman helm the story set in an alternative universe where Brooklyn teen Miles Morales along with many others in a shared multi-universe can wear the web-slinger’s mask.

    The movie opens December 14th.

    “Spider-Verse” First Reviews Are Raves


    spider-verse-first-reviews-are-utter-raves-696x464.jpg


    With twenty reviews counted, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” stands at a stunning 100% and with an 8.2/10 rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics have gone gaga for the film, calling it the best animated film of the year and some dub it the best Spider-Man film to date.

    At last report, the $90 million budget film was tracking for a fairly soft $30 million opening, but such good word of mouth will likely see that number rise in the coming weeks before the film’s release. Here’s a sampling of the reviews so far:

    “A free-wheeling, fast-and-loose, strikingly animated addition to one of the biggest library of films in the Marvel collection. This is not to deny the pleasures and welcome arrival of this fresh new approach to all things Spidey, the new cast of characters and the adventurous approach to animation that invigorates before staying too long at the party…” – Todd McCarthy, THR

    “Tthe brilliance of Sony’s snappy new animated film shows itself in the project’s uncanny ability to simultaneously reset and expand all that has come before, creating an inclusive world where pretty much anybody can be the superhero. In this universe, where audiences are suffering from the very real phenomenon of superhero overload, ambition and originality are to be encouraged, especially it broadens the mythology to include women, people of color, and yes, even that hammiest of scene-stealers, Peter Porker…” – Peter DeBruge, Variety

    “Tragic news for anyone who’s sick of superhero movies: “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” completely reinvigorates the genre, reaffirms why it’s resonating with a diverse modern audience that’s desperate to fight the power, and reiterates to us how these hyper-popular spandex myths are able to reinvent themselves on the fly whenever things get stale…” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire

    “It captures the sprawling interconnectivity of comic-book universes in a way that no other feature film has. Anything can happen, and it usually does. It’s incredibly thrilling to watch, impressively emotional throughout, and easily the best Spider-Man movie since ‘Spider-Man 2’. …” – William Bibbiani, The Wrap

    “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has more than enough plot and characters to match its ungainly title. Yet rather than trying to ground its wilder ideas, the filmmakers lean into the curves and allow the movie to go confidently berserk. It’s a brightly colored pop-art caricature of what it feels like to flip through a particularly kinetic comic book, and often brilliant in its fusion of old-fashioned and new-fangled aesthetics…” – Jess Hassenger, AV Club

    “Happily, all the amiable nonsense that comes pouring out of this movie… is tethered to a boldly imagined origin story with its own potent emotional core. What distinguishes this in the end is that it takes its mission seriously, even when it’s being transparently silly… It’s a sign of a movie not just embracing its hand-drawn comic-book roots, but also striving to be the fullest, truest version of itself it can be…” – Justin Chang, The L.A. Times

    “Honestly, I love this movie and I love that it exists. I love that Sony took a risk on a (yes) somewhat complicated premise and turned it into something unique and funny and daring (and weird). This animated movie has more heart and emotion than most live actions films of this genre…” – Mike Ryan, Uproxx

    “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an explosion of pop art visuals, hyper kinetic action, and laugh-a-minute dialogue all focusing on a comic book universe at once part of the Marvel Universe and undoubtedly its own crazy thing. It’s a celebration of the entire history of the character, and all the characters, as well as a supremely positive message about believing in yourself and those around you. For my money, It’s easily the best Spider-Man movie of them all…” – Kyle Anderson, Nerdist

    “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” opens in cinemas on December 14th.

    Sony To Patent The “Spider-Verse” Look


    sony-to-patent-the-spider-verse-look-696x464.jpg


    Sony Animation’s “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is getting rave reviews for pretty much everything about it, including its unique visual look.

    Now, Deadline reports that the studio has filed with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to get patent protection for the project’s unique animation process. A half-dozen specific animation techniques and technologies are specified and Sony may have to wait anywhere from 3-5 years to hear if the patents are granted.

    The film used a process that is a blend of computer animation with hand-drawn touch-ups that’s so complicated and complex that every second in the film took a week to render.

    “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” opens in cinemas worldwide tomorrow and is currently scoring a 98% (8.9/10) on Rotten Tomatoes and a 86/100 on Metacritic.

    There’s 10 Mins Of Cut “Spider-Verse” Scenes


    extended-spider-verse-mortal-engines-looks-696x464.jpg


    Unlike live-action films, animated films have to be thoroughly planned and essentially edited before they even begin (due to costs) and so there’s almost never any deleted scenes as the material that doesn’t make it rarely gets past the development stage. Even if there are, they’re usually animatics or rough storyboards.

    It turns out the recently acclaimed “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is different. Speaking with Collider the other week, co-director Bob Persichetti revealed that there are at least ten minutes of fully-animated deleted scenes that are out there:

    “[A] rare thing for an animated film is that there’s animation on the cutting room floor. There are about 10 minutes of that from this movie, which is a really high number. And there’s one scene specifically that was one we all really loved, but the movie just kept pushing it out. It was like a splinter, and your body’s like, ‘Nope, you’re not gonna fit there. Get out.’

    The very first [assembly] cut – the animatic, at that time it had a special name called Cabin Fever – was three hours long. So there was a lot of material that had to be formed and focused on how it could help support Miles and how it could help not to confuse the audience.”

    It’s not clear if we’ll ever get to see them, though when the ‘Spider-Verse’ home video release is announced there’s hope some of that material will make it on there.

    “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is now playing in theaters everywhere.

    “Spider-Verse” Almost Had Three More Spider-Men


    spider-verse-almost-had-three-more-spider-men-696x464.jpg


    Hot off its Oscar nomination for best animated feature, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” co-director Rodney Rothman sat down on the podcast The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith (via The Playlist) where he revealed an interesting surprise.

    It turns out the film, which boasts multiple versions of Spider-Man from different dimensions, at one point had the three major live-action Spider-Man actors – Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland – popping up. That sequence was back in the film’s drafting stages and sadly didn’t go further:

    “I wrote a scene that had every, that had Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in the same scene and… I don’t want to get into it but I did write that scene, but there’s a lot of anxiety, there’s a lot of anxiety around the movie generally and there was anxiety about confusing people.”

    Holland will reprise his take on the role this July in “Spider-Man: Far Frome Home,” while a ‘Spider-Verse’ sequel is already in the works.
