12 December 2011 2:04 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Columbia Pictures has released the first teaser poster for The Amazing Spider-Man as they attempt to imply this may be a darker, moodier Spider-Man feature than the Sam Raimi features that ended with Spider-Man 3 in 2007.

Marc Webb Talks Experimental 3D In 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

1 September 2011 5:44 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director Marc Webb's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' will mark the character's first theatrical film in 3D. It has been shot with 3D in mind as opposed to being converted solely in post-production. In an interview with Total Film, the director opened up a little about how the 3D will affect the overall film. He said:  "I wanted to shoot certain things very specifically for 3D. There’s an experiential component to 3D that’s really fantastic and we’re experimenting with generating that point of view so you feel how Spider-Man feels when he’s jumping over these buildings.We made a conscious effort to do those effects practically and we had an incredible stunt team. We built this whole rig – hundreds of feet long – in Harlem, and we actually swung a man through traffic down the street. I thought that was really exciting, not to mention an incredible level of acrobatics! »

Andrew Garfield Talks 'Spider-Man' And The Fame That Almost Deterred Him

26 August 2011 10:29 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Imagine the tone on the set of 'The Amazing Spider-Man.' Everyone must be stone faced and dead serious. Everything about the production seems a far cry from the light, jovial attitude of director, Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' trilogy, which starred Tobey Maguire. A change of vibe is a good thing when the reboot comes not even five years later. The new Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield was recently interviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Asked if he had to avoid anything when crafting his take on the character, he responded:  "There’s so much to do with it, I didn’t really think about avoiding anything. I just didn’t come at it that way. I wanted him to have fun. I wanted it to feel like Peter Parker could have some fun and wasn’t just trying to save the world. He could have fun even after the »

Upside-Down Kiss A Thing Of The Past In 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

16 August 2011 7:51 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In the world of Marvel comics, Peter Parker was all wrapped up in Gwen Stacy before Mary Jane Watson was even a thought in his mind, but in the world of film thus far, it has been quite the opposite. In director, Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man,' the title character (Tobey Maguire) and Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) famously shared an unconventional kiss in which the web-slinger was hanging upside-down. In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, actress, Emma Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy in the new film assured that her character's intimate moments with Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) won't be a carbon copy of days past. She said:  "Why would we do an upside-down kiss? I’m not Mary Jane. I’m Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Man film. New girl. New kiss. I wanted to do different kisses to make our mark." In Raimi's 'Spider-Man' trilogy, Mary Jane »

Rhys Ifans Opens Up About His Reptilian Role In 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

15 August 2011 12:35 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director, Marc Webb and crew are adamant about spreading the word that 'The Amazing Spider-Man' is a far cry from director, Sam Raimi's trilogy, that it is much more serious and relatable. The point that is always driven home is that the upcoming film won't be a rehash. At this past San Diego Comic-Con, Rhys Ifans -- who plays Dr. Curt Connors/the Lizard in the film -- spoke with the Los Angeles Times in depth about his feelings on the film, and his character. Asked about the shoot, and how he enjoyed working with Webb, he replied:  "The shoot was phenomenal. It was a dream come true really. A franchise that has such gravitas as this — it’s all eyes on you — and what Marc has done is very exciting. Not to be disparaging to the other movies at all but they were kind of going »

Emma Stone Talks In Depth About Her Role In 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

26 July 2011 4:49 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A lot of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' is being kept under wraps, but not to the extent of some other comic book inspired films. Actress, Emma Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy in the film was interviewed by Comic Book Resources at this past San Diego Comic-Con. She didn't tread into spoiler territory with what she said, but she did have a lot of interesting things to say. Assuring that her Gwen Stacy is not widely different from the one of the comics, she said: "She's the daughter of the police chief, she grew up on the Upper East Side, she is valedictorian, she's very serious about science, she wants to go to school, she's very responsible, she's the oldest in her family and she really just has this attraction and this slight chemistry when we first meet her with Peter." Talking about the differences between her character and Peter Parker, »

Even though the film is called 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' a name it shares with the long-running comic book series, Webb has repeatedly alluded to the similarities his film shares with the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' series of comics. He has said:  "I wanted it [the film] to be more grounded and more realistic and that went »

The Amazing Spider-Man trailer analysis

20 July 2011 7:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

By now, many of us have seen the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, but what does it tell us about the finished film? Here’s James’ in-depth analysis...

The Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer (which you can see here) has given us our first look at next summer's reboot of Marvel's flagship character, and it’s our best opportunity to see what the film's actually going to be like. Let's see what conclusions we can draw from it...

Back to the beginning

It's clear that director Marc Webb's reboot isn't just setting the story in the "high schooler with superpowers" period that Raimi's films glossed over - it's going right back to the start of his story.

There's more than enough material here to prove that Spider-Man's origin will be a major part of the film, rather than the subject of an Incredible Hulk-style summary retelling. We see Peter in some kind of (Oscorp? »

Ang Lee to Direct Theatrical Adaptation of 'Life of Pi'

15 June 2011 5:53 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Of all the books that no one except me has ever read, Life of Pi by Yann Martel is among the best.

It’s a great book. Even a beautiful book. Yet, every time I happen to bring it up, I get blank stares. No one else has read it, at least in my little social circle, and that’s sad. Its Amazon rating and other chatter among the web seem to imply that other people have read the book, which means that either my friends are all losers who haven’t heard of this great book, or that I’m a loser magnet who has attracted losers as friends who haven’t heard of this great book. Whichever case – this is finally going to change.

Life of Pi is going to be adapted into a theatrical film directed by Ang Lee and based on a script by David Magee. »

Stan Lee Spoils His Cameo In 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' Details Battle Sequence

23 May 2011 10:47 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

One of the many fun things about most movies based on Marvel superheroes is the inevitable cameo from the venerable comic book writer, Stan Lee. Rather than allowing for the audience to play 'Where's Waldo?' with his cameo in 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' Lee just decided to explain it in detail while he was at the 2011 Dallas Comic Con. The video of Lee telling the tale is below. He describes the cameo as taking place in a library setting during a massive brawl between Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and the Lizard. (Rhys Ifans) Lee plays a librarian who doesn't notice the battle taking place around him as he stamps books and listens to music. In addition to Garfield and Ifans, 'The Amazing Spider-Man' includes Martin Sheen as Ben Parker, Sally Field as May Parker, Campbell Scott as Richard Parker, Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, »

Uncle Ben Alleyway Lingering And Bridge Photos From 'Spider-Man'

19 May 2011 12:27 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Among the mostly bridge-centric set photos (see below) from 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' there is another one to go with the Uncle Ben death sequence that was caught about a week back. Unlike the previous set, this photo is of such high quality that it looks more like a still than anything else. It clearly shows Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) in a seedy looking alleyway with another gentleman who's hard to identify because of the lighting and his penchant for what appear to be sunglasses at night. Knowing how the scene progresses given the previous set of photos, it seems very likely that this unidentified man is in fact Uncle Ben's murderer.'The Amazing Spider-Man' is directed by Marc Webb, and in addition to Martin Sheen as Ben Parker, features Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Sally Field as May Parker, Campbell Scott as Richard Parker, Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker, »

Uncle Ben Gets It In 'Spider-Man' Set Photos

13 May 2011 5:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Some new set photos have come out (see below) from the upcoming film, and while they're technically spoilers, it's not like you didn't know this was going to happen. They depict the demise of good ol' Ben Parker. His nephew, Peter (Andrew Garfield) is there doing the whole "vowing to become a greater superhero" thing. Along with Martin Sheen and Andrew Garfield, the film features Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, Sally Field as May Parker, Campbell Scott as Richard ParkerEmbeth Davidtz as Mary Parker, and Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder.

Rhys Ifans Sports Early Stages Of The Lizard In 'Spider-Man' Photos

10 May 2011 2:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Either Rhys Ifans has a bit of a skin problem or the new set photos below from The Daily Mail show off the early stages of his character, Dr. Curt Connors transforming into the formidable Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) foe, the Lizard. A couple of days back, Ifans was caught on set wearing a green wrap on his arm, presumably so that his arm can be removed in post-production as his character is a known amputee. Below the two photos of Ifans is a candid shot of Sally Field walking through the set. It comes courtesy of Splash. She plays the aunt of Peter Parker in the film, May Parker. Her husband, Ben Parker is played by Martin Sheen. Also in the cast are Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Campbell Scott as Richard Parker, Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker, and Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder. 'The Amazing Spider-Man' is directed by Marc Webb, »

9 May 2011 1:53 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Amid this latest batch of set photos from 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' which can be viewed below, is one of actor, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, the man who goes on to become a formidable foe of Spider-Man, (Andrew Garfield) the Lizard.

Wired Web-Slinging And A Bus Incident In 'Spider-Man' Videos

7 May 2011 12:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

For the past while, 'The Amazing Spider-Man' set photos have been leaking like crazy. They started off pretty tame, but have progressed into stuntmen and star of the film, Andrew Garfield swinging around the streets of New York with the assistance of wires. Photos are lovely at capturing a moment, but they can also be a bit of a tease. YouTube user, Ajhp23 has managed to get their hands on more than just some flashy photos. There are two videos below, one showing who is presumably a stuntman doing some wire-assisted web-slinging, while the other has him taking a spinning tumble off of the back of a bus.Directed by Marc Webb, 'The Amazing Spider-Man' stars the aforementioned Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, along with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder, Campbell Scott as Richard Parker, »

Andrew Garfield Practicing His Spider-Mannerisms In 'Amazing' Set Photos

5 May 2011 4:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Star of 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' Andrew Garfield is sick and tired of stuntmen garnering all of the attention when it comes to set photos. Yesterday, one of them was caught perfecting their web-slinging skills. Not to be one-upped any further, Garfield has been caught today in costume practicing his Spider-Man posing. There's also one of him with pants and a hoodie on covering the costume. He's still in mask, however. That's probably Spider-Man's casual attire when he's picking up a pizza or something. Joining Garfield in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' are Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder, Campbell Scott as Richard Parker, Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker, Martin Sheen as Ben Parker, and Sally Field as May Parker. From director, Marc Webb, the film hits theaters on July 3, 2012. As usual, a few select photos are below. »

'Spider-Man' Web-Slinging Gets Fancy In New Set Photos

4 May 2011 10:14 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's time for your daily fix of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' set photos. It's almost as though these photos are plants, because they seem to be progressing in order. The slew of set photos began with a stuntman out of costume practicing his web-slinging. Things went one step further when a costumed Spider-Man was caught trying to get a feel for web-slinging around city buses. Because of the mask, it's hard to tell who's doing these stunts, but whoever it is, it looks like they're getting better by the day. Whereas some early set photos of the stuntman swinging around looked a bit awkward, these new photos coming from The Daily Mail and Splash show off what looks to be an aerial ballet. The guy from 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' could learn a thing or two. This stuntman has found his rhythm. Classic poses are being struck left and right. »
