Here we have the, likely, final trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider -Verse! This stunning looking animated movie is from the minds behind 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie and is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman.

What’s cool about this new trailer is it gives us our first real look at the movies supporting characters such as Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man Noir and Spider-Ham (!!). Despite being a comic reader and a Spider-Man one at that I never did read the Spider-Verse stuff. I am looking forward to seeing these characters in action as much as anyone else! The trailer also shows off more of the villains our heroes will be going up against throughout the movie.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars the voices of Shameik Moore, Nicolas Cage, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Lily Tomlin and Liev Schreiber. That’s some cast! Look for the movie in theatres December 14th.

 

Awesome right? I was sold on this film when I heard that Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) were on board as writers and then that first teaser trailer showed off an awesome new take on how one goes about bringing comic book characters to the silver screen. I haven’t seen nothing like this before and I love it. I’m a Spider-Man nut. I adore animation (traditional 2D will always own my heart though) and more so when I see CGI animation used in new and creative ways.

This has THREE directors and I will be honest I have no idea who they are and what they have put out before. Fingers crossed this movie acts as a big beacon of light highlighting the talent these guys have. By that I mean I hope the film delivers as both the teaser trailer and this new trailer have.

Miles Morales is a great character. I caught his debut in comics and followed his series for a long time. On that front alone I am very much looking forward to seeing this character make his big screen debut in a film that looks set to do him justice. I know it sucks that Marvel Studios don’t hold the rights to Spider-Man on film as a whole, having to share now with Sony, yet I don’t think we’d get interesting projects like this if they did.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hits cinema screens this Christmas.

 

Okay. So by now most of you have seen the teaser trailer for Venom and the big take away was you did not get to see Eddie Brock in his symbiote costume. This film has literally just finished shooting a few days ago. It’s not even out till October. The fact we got a look at it this early is a privilege. Sony don’t OWE us. They know the fanbase for this is big so all involved wanted to get a look at the film out as soon as possible. Be disappointed by all means but don’t start taking to Twitter complaining how hard it is you didn’t get to see Venom. Relax. You will. The amount of kick off online I saw in reaction to this trailer really pissed me off. Talk about a sense of entitlement!

Now on to the teaser itself. I think it looked good. Tone wise it seems like they nailed it and by that I mean it looks like this will be a science fiction flick with action and a serious vibe. Tom Hardy will nail it as Eddie Brock. With the motion capture tech we have today I think fans will be in for one hell of a treat once we get to see what Venom looks like in action. The film has a great cast. Hopefully the script and direction pay off because if they do this could be a quality flick. Venom hits cinema screens in October. See? It’s ages away. You’ll get another two or three trailers before it’s out.

 

Over the weekend the trailer dropped for the Sony Pictures animated Spider-Man movie. So did the new Ready Player One trailer so you’d be forgiven if this one went under your radar.

What a trailer. This looks fantastic. The animation on display here is like nothing I have seen before. This looks like a living comic book movie and it has me very excited for the film.

Now that we have a title – Into the Spider-Verse – comic readers will know exactly what the film will be about. “So, how many of us are there?” Miles Morales asks Peter Parker. The answer is…quite a few. I haven’t read the Spider-Verse comic arc but I know about it and it’s a great way to blow open the Spider-Man mythology in a new and exciting way.

This movie comes from the folks who had a hand in The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street so chances are good it will be good. For those worrying Miles Morales will be co-starring in his own movie fear not! The filmmakers behind Into the Spider-Verse have said this is a Miles Morales movie first and foremost.

Here’s the bad news. This isn’t out till next Christmas!! So watch that trailer again and please be excited.
