    Updates on 'WILMINGTON ON FIRE' Black Township Massacre Documentary - Teaser Trailer, Clips & Premiere Date

    A few months ago S&A’s Cynthia Reid did an influential write-up for the new feature-length documentary project Wilmington On Fire and their efforts to raise more production funds. Due to her efforts and the hard work of the producers of the film the IndieGoGo campaign to tell the present day story of the Wilmington Massacre of 1898 and how the descendants of the victims of the event are asking for legal action in regards to reparations was highly successful.  Now that the doc has completed principle photography, here are some updates (including new video clips!) from Wlimington director Christopher Everett and his executive producer Pete Chatmon, whom most of you best know from his directorial debut Premium, starring Dorian Missick and Zoe Saldana.

    Is Director Marc Webb Going To Return For 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2?'

    As of today, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is in theaters, ending the two-and-a-half-year build up to one of the more controversial superhero films in history. Plans for a "Spider-Man 4" were well underway at the end of 2009, with Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire both returning for a script (by "Rabbit Hole" writer David Lindsay-Abaire) which saw your friendly neighborhood web-slinger come against classic villain The Vulture (John Malkovich) and his daughter The Vultress (Anne Hathaway). But wary of spiraling costs, bad reviews for the third-installment, and an aging lead (Maguire would have been 36 by the time of the film's summer 2011 release, for a character normally portrayed at half that age), Sony pulled the plug and decided to start all over again, to no little protestations from fans.

    Discuss: Does Anyone Care That Dan Aykroyd Hired New Writers For 'Ghostbusters 3'?

    "We'll try again," Bill Murray said recently on David Letterman, alluding to the status of the long-gestating "Ghosbusters 3" at Columbia Pictures. And so what's happening with the proposed after-the-fact threequel? Well, while Murray didn't exactly spell it out, recent news seems to confirm all suspicions: the most recent drafts of "Ghostbusters 3" have been thrown in the trash and inveterate "Ghosbusters" champion and producer Dan Aykroyd is starting over.

    Poster & Trailer For Fifth & Final Season Of 'Fringe'

    “Fringe” was one of those shows that seemed under threat of cancellation at the end of its fourth season, but it was also one of those shows that had a passionate and vocal fan base who were able to convince Fox to bring it back for a fifth and final season. That final run of 13 episodes will kick off on September 28th and will pick up after the events of the season 4 finale which (SPOILER ALERT) saw the return of Leonard Nimoy’s William Bell, as well as the death and subsequent resurrection of Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham (SPOILER END). That episode was apparently written as a possible series finale in the event that the show wouldn’t be picked up for a fifth season, but thankfully that wasn’t be the case. We’ve now got a new poster and promo for the final season, which will culminate with the show’s 100th episode.
