Kids these days, always plugged in to their smartphones and laptops and Instagrams, constantly suffering from the compulsion to record every aspect of their lives. For a superhero, this is probably a bad idea, given the whole secret identity thing and all — but our new Peter Parker is very much a millennial, and he’s going to vlog this whole thing if it kills him.

No, Terry Gilliam Did Not Defile a 12th-Century Portuguese Religious Monument

It almost sounds like something that would happen to Don Quixote, that calamity-prone knight errant: Terry Gilliam has been roving the European countryside as of late, shooting in Spain and Portugal for his freely interpretive Miguel de Cervantes adaptation/riff The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. During this production process, he and his crew set up shop near a 12th-century religious monument called the Convent of Christ.

You Can Watch the Opening Scene of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Right Now

Sony knows that it’s summertime and in the summer traffic can be bad. So bad, even, that you might be running late to the movie theater and miss the first few minutes of Spider-Man: Homecoming this weekend. I personally have a rule that if I miss more than the first few minutes of a movie, I skip the whole thing for another showing. So in case you’re worried about missing the beginning of Homecoming because some jerk decided to hit the emergency break on the subway, have no fear. Sony just released the first four minutes of their new Spidey outing.
