The Spider-Man: Homecoming Clip From The MTV Movie Awards Is Funny And Fun

James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now in theaters, but we are just a couple months away from the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man: Homecoming, from director Jon Watts, will be swinging into theaters this July — and as part of tonight’s MTV Movie Award festivities, fans were delivered a special preview of the upcoming blockbuster. Check it out!

When it comes to his business as Spider-Man, Peter Parker isn’t big on revealing his identity – fearing that it could wind up hurting the people he loves. In this clip, however, we have a case involving a friend finding out completely by accident. Crawling into his bedroom via his window, Peter does everything he can to not get the attention of his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), but winds up coming face to face with his best friend, Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), who proceeds to shatter the superhero’s LEGO model of the Death Star. As you would expect, this run-in leads to a lot of questions… and it comes together as a fun superhero moment.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, based on a script by Jonathan Goldstein and John Frances Daley, is the first web-slinger solo film set in the same world as the Avengers. Forgoing a retelling of the origin story and set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, the movie follows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he deals with life as a normal teenager as well as a wall-crawling superhero – and that dynamic

Final Wonder Woman Trailer Is Here & Massively Epic

Gal Gadot unveiled the final trailer for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman movie at the MTV Movie and TV Awards tonight. Gadot and her costar, Chris Pine, have been listed as presenters since the announcement of the awards ceremony and it was assumed that a clip would be made for the event. But Gadot took to her Twitter account yesterday to announce that in addition to presenting that she also a “wonder-ful” surprise in store for everybody.

This is the first year that MTV has added the television aspect to the show and this will also be the first year of the show being called the MTV Movie and Television Awards. The awards show is being held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and will be hosted by comedian, Adam Devine (Workaholics). In addition to the exclusive Wonder Woman trailer, the show will also have an exclusive sneak peek into the new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT and another exclusive sneak from the upcoming Transformers 5 movie and Spider-Man: Homecoming. MTV has also started something new for this year by having male, female, and gender non-conforming nominees pitted against each other instead of having a best actor or best actress award.

Wonder Woman has seen some controversy over the last few weeks including the previously reported “armpit gate” and a lack of promotion from Warner Bros. The internet was on fire last week over a video still that showed an apparent unnatural, silky smooth, and discolored armpit of Wonder Woman. … Read More

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: Twice Is (Still) the Charm

Perhaps the finest, funniest moment in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the first action sequence. Or perhaps I should put quote marks around that: “action sequence.” Because for most of its duration, the action is strictly an afterthought. The titular supergroup has been enlisted to defeat a giant star-squid, and its smallest member, Baby Groot (the twig-like offshoot of last installment’s arboreal giant), is hooking up some equipment in the foreground as the fight commences behind him. What is Baby Groot fiddling with? Some kind of space cannon?

Of course not. It’s a sound system, and no sooner is it plugged in than the Electric Light Orchestra’s pop jingle “Mr. Blue Sky” bursts forth in all its giddy, meteorological splendor. As Baby Groot’s companions battle the tentacular horror in the background, we’re treated to the delightful spectacle of the mini-veggie juking his way through the opening credits. It is, in its way, the perfect deflation of the time-to-save-the-world-again bloat that has grown customary in the superhero genre, and a worthy successor to the loose, goofy vibe of the first Guardians: You guys deal with the Latest Threat to All Life over there; us, we’re going to hang here and groove to some oldies.

Alas, the magic can’t quite last. (As even the song warns, Mr. Blue, you did it right, but soon comes Mr. Night…) The Guardians sequel and latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe certainly has its moments—quite a few in fact—but too often it finds … Read More
