Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is ending up on many critics’ top ten lists for their favorites of the year – including my own. The film dazzles the screen with moving comic panels and comes alive with pop-up action blurbs. It’s unlike any other film you’ve seen before. It only gets better with a new web spin on the classic webhead. We don’t have to hear another retelling of Peter Parker’s story. Instead, Miles Morales swings in as the lead, breathing new life into the Spider-Man lore.
And now, you can read the script, written by co-producer Phil Lord and co-director Rodney Rothman, for yourself. It’s full of self-deprecating humor, hilarious gags, heartfelt moments, and heart-stopping action. Check it out below.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse included a joke about how the title character’s enormous popularity expanded to cereals, a decent Popsicle, and of course, a Christmas album. Those who stuck around for the end credits got to hear a sample of one Webslinger (Chris Pine) from one universe sing “Spidey-Bells,” which is a play on the popular Christmas song “Jingle Bells.” But that song wasn’t included in the soundtrack or released digitally, as it would have conflicted with the themes of the actual score. But for those who were hoping to be able to get the Christmas songs, Sony Pictures Animation has heard your prayers. A Christmas EP has been released digitally and is available now.
Listen to a few of the tracks that will appear on A Very Spidey Christmas Album here below.
If The Nightmare Before Christmas was unleashed onto the world of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer while on bath salts, you might get the imagery shown in Alan Robert‘s latest gory and graphic adult coloring book, Beauty of Horror: Ghosts of Christmas, which releases on October 30, 2018.
Many might know Alan Robert as the bassist for New York hardcore band Life of Agony. His artistic nature turned to graphic novels and his Beauty of Horror series adult coloring book from IDW Publishing.
Christmas is finally behind us, and so are all the holiday-centric movies. So it wouldn’t be much of a November or December release without a movie involving Christmas or Santa Clause. And it looks like we will be getting one of those from Disney soon, with none other than Anna Kendrick starring as the daughter of Santa Claus.
The currently untitled Disney Santa Claus movie, under the working title Nicole, comes from Miss Congeniality scribe Marc Lawrence, who will also direct. Kendrick is in talks to play Santa Claus’s daughter who is forced to take over the family business after her father decides to retire and her brother gets cold feet on the big night. More on the story below.
