Picking Up The Spare: The Big Sick, Spider-Man: Homecoming, War For The Planet Of The Apes

The Big Sick

  • Michael Showalter has started doing more press as the movie has expanded to more theaters, including this “The Late Show” appearance where he talked about that as well as “Wet Hot American Summer.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming

  • I’m honestly not 100% certain these are official, but these posters that reference 80s John Hughes movies and acknowledge this movie’s own high school story are…not bad.

War For The Planet Of The Apes

  • There was a big feature interview with Harrelson that dropped just after I finished the marketing recap column where he talked about being part of this movie as well as various other topics.
  • Director Matt Reeves later talked about some of the technical issues and hurdles he had to surmount to shoot the movie on an accelerated schedule.
