In a recent interview found on Twitter, via the Tom Holland Updates handle, Spider-Man Homecoming producer Amy Pascal alongside Kevin Feige, revealed that the upcoming spinoffs Venom and Silver and Black could be connected to the new Peter Parker that will be making his MCU debut this July in Homecoming. The two movies to be produced by Sony were at first reported to be separate from the actual character of Spider-Man and the MCU, with Pascal’s comments now causing everyone to believe Tom Holland could appear in both Venom and Silver and Black thus making them a part of the MCU.
In a report from THR, the fate of the Friday the 13th franchise is now unknown as a legal battle puts its future at risk between producer Sean Cunningham and screenwriter Victor Miller, both of whom claim to own the rights to Friday the 13th. Miller is looking to invoke a provision in copyright law which allows authors to reclaim ownership, while Cunningham argues that Miller wrote Friday the 13th as work-for-hire so he has no rights to the property.
It’s Monday which means it’s time for the weekend box office report. In its first weekend of release, Pixar’s Cars 3 took the No 1 spot at the box office with an estimated $53.5 million with Wonder Woman dropping only 30% with $40.7 million and a spot at No 2. Wonder Woman‘s domestic total is now at $275 million and $571.8 million worldwide after three weeks. All Eyez On Me took the No 3 spot with an estimated $27 million, well ahead of expectations. The Mummy dropped 56% in its second weekend of release for the No 4 spot, pulling in an estimated $13.9 million for a domestic total of $56.5 million. However, internationally, the movie remained at #1 with a worldwide total just shy of $300 million. And rounding out the top 5 was 47 Meters Down, which debuted with an estimated $11.5 million.

Michael Bay has been the driving force behind the Transformers franchise at Paramount ever since the first movie debuted more than ten years ago in 2007. With Bay’s fifth Transformers film launching this Wednesday with Transformers: The Last Knight, question becomes – is this his last Transformers movie and could Mark Wahlberg be the face of the franchise moving forward?
Taking to his Twitter account, Ryan Reynolds shared the very first image from Deadpool 2. Filming is currently underway on the sequel at Hatley Castle, a stand-in for Professor Xavier’s “X-Men Mansion” that appeared in a number of the previous X-Men movie installments (including the first Deadpool). Reynolds, channeling his character Wade Wilson, also shared a message along with the first look: “Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big [f***ing] surprise. No one’s home.”
