9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Maybe it feels like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already came out. Technically, it did last week, as it debuted internationally in theaters across the globe. Those of us in the U.S. still have another week and a half to go, which means Sony Pictures is still promoting the sequel as much as they can. Today, we get a ton of new promo art images and photos from the movie. Seen here are three Wall posters featuring the main villains Goblin, Electro and Rhino, which are available to purchase at Wal-Mart. We also get a handful of new photos featuring Chris Cooper turning a nice shade of green as Norman Osborn, and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in what might be her final moments alive. Is she spending them well? Stay tuned after the images for how the recent split between writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci may affect The Amazing Spider-Man 3. »

Marc Webb teases J. Jonah Jameson appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 3

22 April 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there’s one thing that everyone can agree is missing from Sony’s rebooted Amazing Spider-Man series, it’s Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson – presumably, because J.K. Simmons done such a fine job at portraying him in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

Well, it seems that we might get to see Jameson in 2016′s The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with director Marc Webb teasing his inclusion during Google+ Hangout to promote the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

“I like the idea very much of him coming up in the next film. It was more easy to accept a new Spider-Man than someone who could out do J.K. Simmons in that role. He is so iconic. That’s something we’ve really talked about. Obviously I love that character because he poses such an interesting dilemma for Spider-Man. The answer is I don’t know but I think »

Marc Webb discusses a major spoiler from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

20 April 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re yet to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and really don’t want to be spoiled, then you ought to stop reading and turn back now. Seriously. Major spoilers follow. You have been warned…

Well, after a couple of years of rampant speculation, and a marketing campaign that pretty much gave it away anyway, Sony and director Marc Webb took a leaf out of the classic Spider-Man comic book arc ‘The Night Gwen Stacy Died’ with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Emma Stone’s Gwen fell to her death during the climactic battle between Spidey (Andrew Garfield) and the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan). Speaking to Digital Spy, Webb offered some insight into the decision to incorporate Gwen’s death into the sequel:

“It was something that, you know, as a fan of the comic books, it had such a profound effect on the culture, and me, even though »

Wrinkles review 'unsentimental evocation of old age'

19 April 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This Spanish animation, with voices from Martin Sheen and Matthew Modine, is intelligent and entertaining

Adapted from a comic strip by Paco Roca, this traditional cel animation from Spain is a surprising thing indeed an intelligent, entertaining, altogether unsentimental evocation of the experience of old age. With its crisply drawn, unfussy visuals, Wrinkles is about Emilio, an elderly ex-bank manager who reluctantly enters a retirement home and tries to hide the onset of Alzheimer's. Oh yes, all the joyous things are here dementia, incontinence, callous adult offspring and yet Wrinkles is a tender, life-affirming piece, mischievous although it never tries to package its theme in a falsely cheery Last of the Summer Wine fashion. The American dubbing is done by Martin Sheen, as sobersided Emilio, and Matthew Modine as his son but the winning turn is by veteran George Coe, as charismatic and often downright obnoxious old cynic Miguel.

Will a 'Spider-Man' / 'Avengers' Crossover Ever Happen?

18 April 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we reported that a scene from 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past will be attached as an end credits scene in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which got many fans excited for possible Marvel crossovers between Sony, 20th Century Fox and even Marvel Studios. It was later revealed that director Marc Webb is still under contract at 20th Century Fox, and the studio would only let him make the sequel if Sony promoted X-Men: Days of Future Past for free.

When asked about the possibility of Sony joining forces with Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producer Avi Arad revealed that a cross-over will only happen when the studios have run out of other ideas, although that likely won't happen anytime soon.

"I think I'm probably a little bit of the militant here. I think it will take a moment in which we've run out of ideas. »

Secret Deal Behind 'Spider-Man' / 'X-Men' Post-Credits Revealed

16 April 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we reported that fans who stay to the end of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 credits will be treated to a scene from 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While the scene does not tie the two franchises together, many have wondered why the rival studios would team up for this kind of cross-promotion, with speculation that they may be teaming up for some sort of superhero crossover in the future. Variety has a new report which reveals that a Spider-Man and X-Men hybrid movie is not in the works, and that there is a simple, contractual reason why this extra scene was added to prints of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

When The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb was in negotiations to make The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the talks hit a brief snag, since the filmmaker is still under contract to make one more movie with Fox Searchlight, »

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Features 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Post-Credits Scene

16 April 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In an interesting twist, Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox are working together to cross promote their upcoming Marvel movies, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 featuring a post-credits action sequence from X-Men: Days of Future Past that is exclusive to the sequel's release in theaters.

While Post-Credits sequences have become expected as of late, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 decided to forgo any type of tease in setting up The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Its unclear if early fan outrage at this spurred the unique merging of these two Marvel films, but now, U.K. residents can see the sequence when the movie opens in theaters today, and U.S. audiences can see it when the film opens in the states on May 2nd.

The sequence does not tie the two films together in any way. It's merely a 'reward' for those who decide to stay seated throughout the credits. Empire first reported on the news, »

New TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

15 April 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its UK release tomorrow [read our review here], and just so we don’t forget Sony has released the umpteenth TV spot for its superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which we’ve got for you below…

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man.

For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, »

Will Carnage Appear in 'Spider-Man' Spin-Off 'Venom'?

14 April 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a new Daily Bugle viral story for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 teased the villainous Carnage, a.k.a. Cletus Kasady. Though, as with all of these Daily Bugle stories, it isn't known if the character will actually appear in the sequel or not. Today, producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach teased that this character may be showing up in their upcoming spin-off Venom.

When asked if Carnage will be a part of the Venom movie, Avi Arad had this to say,

"What a great idea."

Since last week's Daily Bugle viral story was "written" by none other than Eddie Brock, the character who turns into Venom in the Marvel comic books, it seems these characters interacting in the spin-off would be a perfect fit. In the comics, Cletus Kasady actually got his his powers from Venom while sharing a jail cell with Eddie Brock. Cletus becomes infected by »

Wrinkles Review

14 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Upon learning that a film is presented as an animation, you can’t help but assume the picture is targeting a younger crowd, hoping to win over both adults and children alike. However Ignacio Ferreras’ Wrinkles is certainly one for the former, as a poignant drama that handles a series of tragic themes, such as death, mental illness and the disparagement of nostalgia, all with a delicate tenderness, to make for a unique and memorable feature film.

Though initially a Spanish production, Martin Sheen provides the vocals for our protagonist Emilio for the English language version, an elderly man struggling with a mild form of alzheimer’s disease. Emilio is checked in at a care facility by his son Juan (Matthew Modine), where he room shares with the devious figure Miguel (George Coe), who manipulates the other residents with his shady antics, making a neat profit in the process. As Emilio begins to settle, »
