Film Bits: ‘Spider-Man’ Swings in ‘Homecoming’ Trailer; ‘IT’ Creeps with Teaser

Marvel and Sony Reveal Second ‘Spider-Man’ Trailer

After doing his level best to split about the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, you’d think Tony Stark would be a bit hesitant to face off against another superhero so soon. That doesn’t seem to be the case in the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which finds the web-slinger butting heads with everyone’s favorite genius billionaire playboy philanthropist. We also get more of Michael Keaton’s The Vulture, who seems to be yet another scientist spurned in some way or another by Tony Stark who decides to get his revenge by building a super suit of his own. There’s also an exciting scene where Spidey keeps a giant boat from falling apart, which looks remarkably similar to Tobey Maguire’s subway heroics in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. In fact, a lot of this trailer looks familiar, almost as if they took the best scenes from the previous five movies and cobbled together a sort of great hits remix package. This is going to be awesome. Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7.

David Lowery Follows Up ‘Pete’s Dragon’ with ‘A Ghost Story’

A24 has been dominating the indie movie scene for several years now, and it doesn’t seem as though 2017 is going to be any different. They just released the trailer for their latest film, A Ghost Story, which was a hit at this year’s Sundance. From director David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon), A Ghost Story looks filled with moody atmospherics and despite the sheet clad ghost trailing the characters, seems to be more a meditation on time and aging than a horror story. The trailer seems light on plot specifics, but gives us a fair amount of insight into the aesthetic of the film, which is beautiful as ever. A Ghost Story stars Sonia Acevado and Casey Affleck and will hit theaters on July 7.

‘IT’ Teaser Floats.

WB has released the teaser for the trailer for IT, and it’s already getting creepy. While we’ll know a bit more about the movie with the release of the full trailer tomorrow, the one-two punch of this teaser—which includes the classic line, “We all float down here”—and poster should silence a few naysayers who don’t see why we need to remake a made for TV miniseries as an R-rated film that’s more true to the book. Stephen King, for his part, has seen the movie and called it, “Wonderful,” so I’ll guess we’ll just have to wait and see. We’ll have a better idea when the trailer finally drops, but, for now, enjoy.

‘True Detective’ Season 3 in the Works

After a critically bemoaned second season, it seemed as though we were done with HBO’s True Detective. Now, creator Nic Pizzolatto has confirmed that he’s begun writing the new season of his anthology show, along with David Milch (Deadwood). No specifics have been announced yet and no release has been confirmed. It’s been two years since we last saw True Detective, and despite the poor reception the second season received, it wasn’t hated by all. The main problem seemed to be the rushed nature of the writing, which is always the case when you’ve got a critically acclaimed series that comes out of nowhere. Pizzolatto has no doubt been taking his time to craft a tighter narrative this time around, and since we probably won’t see anything until at least 2018, perhaps the new season will bring it back into audience good graces.
