Are you waiting with bated breath for a glimpse of the upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man?  

Does July 3rd seem like a lifetime away? Well, there’s some good news for you.

It looks like you can get a sneak peek of the movie. But, if you want to do it, you’ll have to go and see Men in Black III.

Say what?

Yep, that’s what you’ll have to do.  Because Sony plans to play a 6-minute preview of the film before Men in Black 3 begins playing in IMAX 3-D theaters.

Kinda sounds familiar, doesn’t it?  It should, because Christopher Nolan did something very similar this past December when he unveiled The Dark Knight Rises prologue prior to Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol.

Men in Black III opens this Thursday at midnight. Make sure to get there early if you want to catch a glimpse of the new Spidey.

Kevin Smith retiring

Kevin Smith has made quite a few fans disappointed by announcing he will no longer be making movies.  But, perhaps they will once again be happy knowing that their fave director is starting a new endeavor.

Smith is partnering up with Hulu to create Spoilers, an online show on which Smith and his guests will talk about movies.  However, he doesn’t plan to review the movies, he plans to revere them.

In the first half of the show, he wants to discuss recent movie with the studio audience, who will have already seen the movie on opening night as a group. The former director wants his guests to engage in lively and heated discussions about movies—kind of in the same way people discuss what they’ve just seen as they are leaving the movie theater.

The second half will feature a mix of segments, such as guest interviews and discussions. The first season of the show, which will feature 10 episodes, is set to launch on June 4th.

‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ cancelled

Hey reality show fans.  Hold on to your seats, ‘cause this one’s a doozie!

It has been announced that ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ has been cancelled.  And just a week or so after the show finished up its 8th season.

The long-running season started when Duane “Dog” Chapman appeared on Take this Job, a show that gave viewers a sneak peek into some interesting jobs.  Since then, he and his bounty hunting family have been finding and cuffing criminals in both Colorado and Hawaii all while allowing people to watch all the action from the comfort of their homes.

A&E, the network on which the show has aired, has met with some controversy concerning the show.  Production was halted in 2007 when one of Chapman’s sons sold a tape of his father using some profanity.  It returned in July 2008, after Chapman apologized for his language.  

Recently, Dog has received some death threats and they are being investigated by the FBI. As for the cancellation, it looks like it might have something to do with creative differences.  

Interesting.
