The upcoming movie stars Tom Holland as the webslinger. This is the latest attempt by studio Sony to start a 'Spider-Man' film series and, along with other projects like an upcoming 'Green Lantern' film and the Freeform TV series 'Shadowhunters,' shows how Hollywood tries again even if a property fails.
The new movie 'Kong: Skull Island,' the latest take on the famous 'King Kong' story, had a strong opening weekend, coming in first against competition such as the 'X-Men' film 'Logan' and the horror movie 'Get Out.'
'Out,' which is directed and written by Jordan Peele, stars Daniel Kaluuya as a young black photographer who is brought to stay at his white girlfriend's parents' house for the weekend. In its own darkly satiric way, it is also a movie about racial paranoia that captures the zeitgeist in ways that many more 'prestigious' movies don’t.
