Spider-Man is arguably the most popular superhero of all-time – there’s something inherently attractive about the idea of being imbued with his web-swinging abilities, not to mention the fact that he’s totally nerdy and yet still manages to keep ahold of the voluptuous, gorgeous Mary Jane Watson. It’s the sort of life that many of us might long for, although the constant onslaught of villains makes it a little less desirable (but only a little). Yes, it’s true to say that Spider-Man encompasses everything required to make a great superhero: his popularity is justified.
Spider-Man first made it to film 13 years ago, when director Sam Raimi – best known at the time for the likes of his Evil Dead movies – gave us what is still perhaps one of the best and my faithful comic book adaptations to have ever hit our screens. With Toby Maguire leading »
A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

Strictly professional! Kirsten Dunst was interviewed in W magazine's May 2014 issue by guest editor Sofia Coppola, and sounds off on the fabled casting couch. In the Q&A, Dunst's Virgin Suicides director, 42, asks the actress, 31, what it's like working with directors who share a different vision and direction in the filmmaking process. "It takes all the fun out of what you do," Dunst reveals to Coppola. "You just get through it instead of having a meaningful experience." Coppola, considered Hollywood royalty herself as the talented daughter [...] »
Kirsten Dunst doesn't have much empathy for anyone complaining about the casting couch. In an interview with W Magazine guest-editor Sofia Coppola, the 31-year-old reveals she's never worked with a director who made an inappropriate advance on her, explaining, "I don't give off that vibe." "I think you court that stuff," she says, "and to me, it's crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship." That's not to say that the former child star's career ascent, which included a 2008 voluntary rehab stint for depression, has been seamless. "[My] hardest age was 27," she tells Coppola. "I had to figure out how to navigate »
The Two Faces of January looks like being one of the more beautiful, enigmatic of thrillers heading into cinemas. And we've got our hands on three exclusive character posters. Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac are all stylishly front and centre in these posters, giving a glimpse at the characters behind a 1960s-set thriller about a glamorous and mysterious American couple (Mortensen and Dunst) who woo a stranger they meet on holiday in Greece (Isaac) into a complex web of murder, deceit and a dangerous battle of wits.

Thanks to Marvel_Spider for coming across this cool image of an unused Venom costume, designed by the talented crew at Frontline Design. In 2004, Frontline Design collaborated with three-time Academy Award winning Costume Designer, James Acheson, on Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.

Spider-Man is in for the fight of his life against a lethal mix of villains - the deadly Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), Venom (Topher Grace), and the New Goblin (James Franco »
Here’s the thing. I don’t care about your sports team. It’s nothing personal, but I just don’t care about sports teams or sports in general. That lack of interest on my part extends far too frequently to sports movies as well though, and while I’ve found myself unexpectedly captivated on more than one occasion the ones that truly stick with me over time are the ones that actually aren’t about sports at all. Of course that assessment could be applied to just about every sports movie to some degree. Hoosiers for example is about underdogs, teamwork and faith in yourself and others, but basketball still courses through its veins. Rudy is another underdog story, something I’m a sucker for in general (as you’ll see below), but while it contains commentary on honor and racism it’s unavoidably a college football film through and through.

And now our semi-weekly check in with actresses we love. Where / What / Who are they up to?
Brie Larson has accepted an offer to star in the psychological horror drama as "Ma", about a woman who's trapped in her father's basement for years with her son. It's based on the novel by Emma Donoghue who also did the screenplay but the novel is narrated by the 5 year old child who's only ever known this one room so that one's going to be tricky to make breathe as a film. This seems a better fit for her dramatic gifts than that dumb Terminator reboot she lost out on. The actress is in demand now post Short Term 12 as well she should be. She's also got The Gambler remake and the comedy Trainwreck coming out. Room is not the only novel adaptation she's attached to. She'll probably co-star in The »

Remember the days Jake Gyllenhaal and former girlfriend Kirsten Dunst would walk their dog Atticus together in Los Angeles? Yes, and it was perfect. The Manic Pixie Dream Couple of the early ’00s may be long gone, but Gyllenhaal’s career only intensified after that relationship. As did his gossip potential and attempts at leading man status, giving us maple latte dates with Taylor Swift and the forgettable Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

While he broke out as a talented actor from a famous family oozing with indie credibility, Gyllenhaal quickly became one of Hollywood’s most coveted young actors. With the monstrous success of disaster flick The Day After Tomorrow, he began pairing his box office potential with high-profile romances that left tabloids salivating: Kirsten, Reese Witherspoon, Taylor. After an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in Ang Lee‘s Brokeback Mountain, as well »

Lars Von Trier is called so many things that we often forget that he's a terrific director of actors. With his strange sense of humor and world views, his films are often as alienating as they are enlightening, but actors seem to die to work for him. He's led three of his actresses to wins at the Cannes Film Festival and has injected new life into the careers of actors like Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe and now Uma Thurman. Whether you're a fan of his films or not, his contributions to directing actors are incomparable. Now that both of his Nymphomaniac volumes are out in theaters (reviewed), it's a great time to look back

Kirsten Dunst recently raised some eyebrows when she shared her thoughts on the subject of gender. But it seems as if boyfriend Garrett Hedlund might just be in agreement with her views. After all, the two were spotted happily enjoying each other's company while smoking cigarettes together in London on Monday.

The actress covers the May issue of Harper's Bazaar where she opens up about her personal style, growing up in the spotlight and relationships with the mag.

I can get very comfortable."And while Kristen's happy to be in front of the camera, she'd love to direct one day ... maybe. "I would love it.

Kirsten Dunst is embracing her womanliness! The 31-year-old actress, who appears on the cover of the May issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, shares her thoughts on the subject of gender with the magazine.

Now in its 57th year, the storied San Francisco International Film Festival has selected its Opening and Closing Night films. On April 24, the fest will kick off with Opening Night film "The Two Faces of January," Hossein Amini's Patricia Highsmith adaptation starring Oscar Isaac, Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst. Centered on a con artist, his wife and a mysterious ex-pat tour guide as they attempt to flee Greece following a violent incident that interlocks the trio, the 60s-set film premiered at the 2014 Berlinale where it picked up solid reviews. This is Amini's debut feature as a director. He wrote the slick, tightly crafted screenplay for Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 "Drive," and was among the many scribes on both "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "47 Ronin." Amini's 1997 Henry James adaptation "The Wings of the Dove" nabbed him a Oscar nomination. Magnolia Pictures will distribute "Two Faces of January" later this year. »
