Here is the Monstrous Lizard from Spider-Man

30 December 2011 7:14 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Look, in the world of entertainment news, we're all still coasting through the holiday week.  Surely you'll allow this deviation from our usual straight-up horror coverage for a frivolous piece of creature news connected to a big 2012 superhero flick.  (The other guys always cover non-horror films like Immortals, Cowboys and Aliens and Clash of the Titans and you don't give them any b.s., right?)   If you're an avid reader of Shock, you know I am a reader of comics and the glut of superhero flicks definitely has me excited.  This The Amazing Spider-Man business?  I can do without.  It's far too soon for a reboot, I feel all of the actors look far too old to be playing the teenagers in high school they were hired to play and I think Sony should have just mustered up the courage to allow Sam Raimi to right some wrongs after Spider-Man 3 »

A Festive Week in Spandex - The Dark Knight Rises trailer talk, Joss Whedon on The Avengers... in 3D, David Fincher’s Spider-Man and more…

28 December 2011 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round-up of the big news stories from the world of movie superheroes…

Warner Bros. gave Batman fans an early Christmas present this past Monday with the online release of the second theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises and – with anticipation for Christopher Nolan’s Gotham swansong reaching fever pitch - it quickly went on to shatter the iTunes record previously held by Marvel’s The Avengers as it amassed a whopping 12.5m views in just 24 hours. The trailer delivered on pretty much every level, giving us a tantalising glimpse at what appears to be some epic action sequences, along with a look at the majority of the cast in action, including Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne / Batman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon), Michael Caine (Alfred), Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake), along with a Batman Returns-style introduction to Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle. »

Ten movies we can’t wait to see in 2012

27 December 2011 8:52 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: We’ve spent so much time analyzing the past year, singling out spectacular performances and breaking down key contenders in the 2011 Oscar race. It’s time, with the New Year fast approaching, to look forward. What movies due out in 2012 are you most looking forward to? Which ones will earn the most cash? Which ones will collect the most Oscar nominations and eventual trophies?

I’m going to list my 10 most anticipated movies of 2012. Most are obvious. We’re all film fans, and the same ones that float your boat likely will sit at or near the top of my 2012 list (hello there, “The Dark Knight Rises”).

But I also want to go off the grid in a few spots and highlight a handful of titles that you might not yet be aware of. Let’s discover these gems together. And in the comments section below, »

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Pics: Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker, & Webshooters

27 December 2011 8:06 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Sony has held off on unveiling a second trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man just yet – perhaps, in part to avoid it being overshadowed by the recent onslaught of headline-grabbing theatrical promos unveiled for other tentpole pics due out in 2012 (see: The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, etc.).

The studio has nonetheless been keeping director Marc Webb’s Spidey franchise reboot on the public’s radar for the past month, via the release of posters and the launching of the official Amazing Spider-Man website. Now, we have even more hi-res images from the flick to share with you.

Amazing Spider-Man aims to differentiate itself from director Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man movie in several respects, including:

Featuring a different villain in The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and traditional first love interest Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Incorporating the subplot involving Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and ...

Latest Amazing Spider-Man Pics Online

26 December 2011 11:21 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Update: Two extra pics have now shown up, one a tribute to a classic Spidey pose, the other a shot of Garfield and Stone at school. You can see them in the gallery.Looking to keep The Amazing Spider-Man in our festively blurred noggins over this quiet period between Christmas and New Year, Sony has shoved out a few new pictures from the film on to the web. Focusing mostly on Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield)’s early days as the web-shooting hero, the new images feature him discovering his new found powers and going a little bit Teen Wolf on the high school basketball court. There is also a nice, close look at the mechanical web system he’ll be using, a switch back to the character’s roots before more recent comic runs – and Sam Raimi’s cinematic version – had them as organic developments.Also pictured is Emma Stone »

Today we have some new images from major upcoming films. First up, we’ll tackle the smallest, with Tim Burton‘s feature-length adaptation of his black-and-white short Frankenweenie.

Bruce Campbell May Appear in Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great And Powerful After All

22 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Shortly after filming on director Sam Raimi‘s forthcoming Walt Disney Pictures movie Oz: The Great and Powerful began, we brought you the news when actor Bruce Campbell stated on Twitter that he would be joining the likes of James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Joey King and Zach Braff on the cast.

Just a couple of months after that, much to the dismay of his fans (myself included) Campbell stated on Twitter,

“News: my scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure!”

According to TheShiznit, who recently spoke with Campbell about the scene he did end up shooting, so it seems he may be appearing in the film after all.

“The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of »

Q&A: Thomas Haden Church on Playing the Brother of a Guy Who Bought a Zoo

22 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

More than 20 years after introducing himself to audiences via the doofus mechanic Lowell on the sitcom "Wings," Thomas Haden Church has become one of Hollywood's most reliable character actors. Transitioning from TV to film in the late 1990s, he enjoyed a career resurgence in 2003 in Alexander Payne's "Sideways" playing a caddish best friend to Paul Giamatti's sad-sack writer, and has since found his way into movies both big (Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3") and small (Sam Levinson's directorial debut "Another Happy Day").

Next up for Church is Cameron Crowe's "We Bought A Zoo," in which he plays Duncan, older brother to Matt Damon's character Benjamin, a bereaved father who purchases an ailing zoo. Church talked to us in New York about finding common ground between himself and his on-screen sibling, creating stories that are both believable and wish-fulfilling, and, well, buying a zoo.

22 December 2011 1:55 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell knew each other since the beginnings of their film careers. So were there any doubts that Raimi would not include his friend Campbell in “Oz: The Great and Powerful?” Back in November, Campbell admitted his cameo scene was cut. In Campbell’s Twitter account, he wrote, “News: my scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure! Now Cambell told The Shiznit that his scene is restored and it plays an important part of the upcoming Wizard of Oz prequel. “The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day.
