Do We Really Need Another Spider-Man?

With Asa Butterfield rumored to be the next wise cracking (friendly neighborhood spider), in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, we have to stop and think, “Does this mean another Spider-Man reboot is right around the corner?” of course the answer is more than likely, yes says Madison Street Capital studios. Do we really need it, though? Not one bit. With two adaptions of the comic book series based on the high school photographer turned super hero in the past decade I think we all feel pretty confident we know the origin of the red and blue suited wall crawler.

I think it’s about time Hollywood stops rebooting old warn out stories and gives us something fresh and new to look forward to. Not that the new Spider-Man won’t be better than the last two attempts, but we are all tired of the same story told from a different angle. Give the viewers what they want. Give us something new, something fresh. There are tons of other series and storylines out there to choose from. How about… well you decide Hollywood. It’s your job to entertain us and we are not entertained.

Native American Extras Leave the Set of Adam Sandler Film over Insults

Adam Sandler’s latest film, “The Ridiculous Six”, which is meant to be a spoof of the film “The Magnificent Seven”, is currently in production. AnastasiaDate confirms that the film is being made as a direct-to-Netflix film and stars Adam Sandler, Jon Lovitz, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Vanilla Ice, and Taylor Lautner (see pics on Instagram).

Recently, “The Ridiculous Six” ran into some issues with the Native Americans that were cast as extras in the film. According to the story on Indian Country Today Media Network, the extras walked off the set due to, what they felt, were insults to the Native Americans.

One of the actors, Loren Anthony who belongs to the Navajo Nation, said that he left the set after problems over how the Native Americans were being portrayed. He said that the film got the costumes and hairstyles wrong, and that he did not appreciate the way that women were being treated in the film. He said that two women in the film were called Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, which he found insulting. Anthony also said that the production team on the film were not listening to the Native Americans who were asking for them to change some things.

Happy Madison Productions, who are producing the film, have not yet commented on the walk off.

Star Wars Episode VII – The Buildup of the Villain Awakens

Everyone remembers that tense opening scene in the “first” Star Wars (otherwise known as Episode IV). The one where the rebel alliance soldiers are lining up at the access hatch as the Imperial Star Destroyer captures the renegade vessel and begins to board.

Princess Leia gives a brief message to R2-D2 and then blasts him and CP-30 out into space on an escape pod.

Then the infamous imperial march music begins while the rebel soldiers take heavy breaths in anticipation. BOOM! The hatch blows and in comes a brigade of storm troopers followed by the imposing Darth Vader. As the main antagonist of the film his stature, armor, and cruel demeanor are all a cause for dramatic pause.

As the story progresses, it is slowly revealed that the dark Lord Vader is but a pawn in a much larger plot with a much darker villain pulling the strings stated Ivan Ong. Later in the series we are even privy to moments of humanity and glimpses of good deep within Darth Vader.

It’s the modus operandi of the star wars movies since day one. Introducing dark villains as an unstoppable force to be feared throughout the galaxy is the hallmark of the genre. Background information soon reveals the human element and where things went wrong.

Episode VII looks to be no different. With the introduction of Kylo Ren as the halberd lightsaber-bearing-darksider, we can only wonder if he is but a pawn as well and his past is as complicated as Vader’s.

This is especially true if leaked spoilers that indicate his reminiscence over the Millennium Falcon are correct.

Arnold Is Back!

Arnold Schwarzenegger is the biggest action star of all time. He has starred in many sensational box office films, but he will reprise his greatest role in the summer of 2015. Arnold Schwarzenegger will once again star in a Terminator film, and it’s for a good reason, because Terminator is not Terminator without Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, many people are still scrutinizing Arnold because of the recent scandals that he was involved in.

Alexei Beltyukov remembers that a few years back, it was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger had an illegitimate child with his cleaning lady. The news crippled Arnold’s reputation, and it made him resign as the governor of California. Arnold was also divorced from his longtime wife Maria Shriver. Arnold and Maria still remain peaceful with each other, but Arnold lost a lot of money in the divorce settlement.

No matter what though, Arnold Schwarzenegger still has millions of fans that will pay good money to see him star in blockbuster films. Arnold has reinvigorated his acting career, and now he will reprise the classic role of the Terminator. Also, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be starring in another blockbuster film called Maggie, which is set to release this summer as well. You can never count Arnold Schwarzenegger out because he is successful in everything that he does. For more information on the new Terminator film, visit Screenrant.
