Movies Coming Soon

Venom (2018)

October 5, 2018
PG-13
Action, Sci-Fi, Horror

This plot is unknown. The film is based on the Spider-Man villain Venom and is believed to be part of Sony's plan to build a cinematic universe around the Web Head's iconic rogues gallery.

Venom's first full appearance in the comics happened in 1988's The Amazing Spider-Man #300 and he quickly became one of Spider-Man's most popular foes. The character was part of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 in 2007, but the portrayal was widely criticized by fans. A spinoff starring Venom has been in development for quite some time, with first word about the project happening in 2007. Venom finally gained traction again in March 2016 and was surprisingly confirmed in 2017. Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer will helm, with Oscar nominee Tom Hardy portraying the title role. Principal photography began in October 2017 and wrapped in January 2018. Sony is going for an R rating after Fox experience success with adult-orientated comic book adaptations.

It is unknown if this is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Marvel's deal with Sony to use Spider-Man in the MCU. Kevin Feige says it is separate, but Amy Pascal referred to Venom as an adjunct of the MCU. New Spidey Tom Holland is rumored to cameo, though that has not been confirmed.

Halloween (2018)

October 19, 2018
R
Horror

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

This is the latest film in the Halloween film franchise, which originated in 1978. The first movie is seen by many as one of the classics of the genre and was a massive box office hit during its theatrical run. Halloween spawned multiple sequels, which unfortunately saw diminished returns. The first film was remade in 2007, but that rebooted series stalled after the release of the 2009 sequel.

The 2018 version of Halloween is meant to be a direct sequel to the 1978 original, wiping out all of the other followups from canon. It was first announced in 2016, and principal photography commenced in January 2018 and ran until February of that year.
