Movie Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.

There is a common misconception that I feel I need to deal with. In 2007 Spider-Man 3 turned out to be quite the travesty. The main issue leveled at it was that it had too many villains. That was never the case, how ever many people said it. It was also a bloody lazy thing to say. The characters were utterly mishandled. Long established story elements were messed around with, and the one villain that everyone wanted to see was completely miscast. Emo Parker however, cannot be explained. That was just terrible. »

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. »

A Classic is Born...on Masterpiece Contemporary

18 April 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

guest review by Darwyn Carson With a solid reputation for superior dramas, PBS’s Masterpiece Theatre has undoubtedly been a hard act to follow. Now its close cousin, Masterpiece Contemporary raises the bar tonight with the tightly woven political thriller, Page Eight. Writer-director David Hare (the playwright perhaps best known in the States for his screenplays The Hours and The Reader) has culled together a terrific cast of players led by Bill Nighy that includes Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Judy Davis, Felicity Jones, and Rachel Weisz. A traditional spy drama, taut with suspense, Page Eight almost feels sophisticated in its darkness, with undercurrents of danger lurking in the shadows and veiled threats being made from unexpected quarters, wholly reminiscent of— —Noir when it was king. Long-time military intelligence analyst Johnny Worricker (Nighy) is a passionate man, about his art collection, jazz records and the many women he has wooed—some of whom he’s. »

Directed by Marc Webb.

Synopsis:

Dear reader, there’s two things I’d like to divulge here. 1) This contains some spoilers. Boo hoo. And 2) My writing style is not usual filled with so many open questions and Screaming Caps Lock but this film brought out the worst in me. I blame Marc Webb.

The sequel nobody wanted to the reboot nobody wanted. A script from the creative minds behind such beloved classics as Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Island, and Star Trek Into Darkness. The return of a director who demonstrated he is incapable »

Where Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaves Sony's superhero universe

17 April 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Hunt 18 Apr 2014 - 06:00

What hints did Amazing Spider-Man 2 give us about the rest of Sony's planned Spider-Man franchise?

This article contains spoilers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may have lacked the next-movie teaser Marvel Studios likes to pin onto their films, but that doesn't mean we haven't got any clue as to where the Spider-Man franchise is going. With Sony's stated goal of turning the property into its own universe of films, we got to thinking: what clues are there in Amazing Spider-Man 2 that might get followed up as the franchise expands?

Just so you don't get spoiled, we're going to put a big picture up here. After that, it's spoiler territory...

Still here? Right then...

Felicity Jones' all-too-brief appearances were a highlight of Amazing Spider-Man 2, and not least because anyone familiar with Spider-Man has »

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, »

Marvelous Da7e #41: Come With Me To Our Future Women Days

16 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to Issue #41 of The Marvelous Da7e!

Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies. Titular allegiance aside, this sphere includes non-Marvel properties.

This week: X-Men Days of Future past links to Godzilla and Spider-Man. Calling all women to the megafranchise!

Come With Me To Days Of Future Past!

Did anyone else notice that the last trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was scored by a remix of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” but at a faster tempo with modern instrumentation, so it instantly called to mind the last modernized-up-tempo “Kashmir.” It was called “Come With Me” and was a track for 1998′s Godzilla.

Check out the video for that, in case you don’t remember.

Ok, then here’s the Days of Future Past “final trailer”

Do You Hear It?!?! It’S The Same Tempo.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to launch a 'Spider-Man Cinematic Universe', overseen by producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. We know that Venom and Sinister Six are already lined up along with direct sequels to The Amazing Spider-Man, but which other characters can we expect to see?

Exclusive: Wheels have been put in motion for the Spider Slayers and Black Cat to join the cinematic Spider-Man universe...

There's a very mild spoiler for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in this story. Nothing that affects the film, and nothing that's not already been revealed in news stories, but we've put this here just to be on the safe side.

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, »

April Showers: Like Crazy

14 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

waterworks continue most nights at 11. Here's abstew on Like Crazy

When Like Crazy played at Sundance in 2011, it became an instant hit. It even managed to win both the Grand Jury Prize for Drama and a Special Jury Prize in acting for star Felicity Jones. So it seemed natural that the film would follow in the Oscar-nominated footsteps of fellow Sundance award winners Precious and An Education and translate that success into some Oscar love of its own. If anything, certainly the film would've been the kind of star-is-born breakout for Felicity Jones in the same way Carey Mulligan had experienced 2 years previously. (And discussed recently in another edition of April Showers.) But when it was released in theatres later that year, the love it found in Sundance just never caught on in the same way for audiences or critics. And it seems the only breakout star to come from »
