Spider-Man: Far From Home Starts A New Chapter

Spider-Man: Far From Home has the main responsibility of dealing with the after effects of Avengers: Endgame, including the Midtown High students. If you’ve seen trailers for the film, you have probably already shown a good part of what’s going on.  Regardless of that, there’s a certainly lot of film not seen in the trailers.  Let me warn you now: there’s a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene.  Also: if you read nothing else before…

Spider-Man: Homecoming: The Road to Endgame

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best incarnation of Spider-Man on the big screen as the web-slinger joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe in his first big screen adventure.

Tribeca 2018: Laboratory Conditions

Laboratory Conditions packs so much punch in just under 20 minutes that you forget it’s not a narrative feature!
