Prolific director Woody Allen is enjoying a bit of an upswing after last year’s critically acclaimed Blue Jasmine. Though he’s always been a bit hit and miss, his last effort was one of his best yet and this summer, we’ll see if he can strike gold again with his next film, Magic in the Moonlight. The romantic comedy has been shrouded in secrecy for a while now but thanks to The Film Stage, we finally have some more details about the film, including an official release date.
Taking place in the south of France in the 1920′s, Magic in the Moonlight will arrive on July 25th and stars Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater and Simon McBurney. A previous synopsis for the film describes it as “a romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle, »

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 (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). 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 (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp. Pretty cool eh? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out in the UK and Ireland now, »
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. »

For an actress who's on everyone's list of favorite ladies to girlcrush on, Emma Stone has quite the robust cadre of crushes herself.

Suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s. I’m “biast” (pro): like the cast
I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t a huge fan of the first one; the trailer looked generic
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Two years on from the first pointless reboot of the Spider-Man story — a mere five years after the previous version had wrapped up — the pointless sequel has arrived. Except now we’ve had two more years of cogent, witty Avengers flicks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffers badly by comparison. This looks like a throwback to a time when comic book movies were kiddie stuff and nothing else. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s, and not the smart, relevant science-fiction action drama the genre has matured into on the big screen. »

We really have so much in common with Emma Stone. Up there with her love for The Spice Girls, The Amazing Spider-Man actress admires fellow thesp and funnygal Jennifer Lawrence (and it goes without saying that we're obsessed with J.Law. It's almost unhealthy). "I just think she's so great isn't she? She is so inspiring to me and I am so grateful that she exists in the world, as someone who is authentic and who has not bent to fit any idea of what a woman should be in that kind of position. And she is so talented," the 25-year-old said of The Hunger Games star during an interview with The Stylist. "I am just so happy she is around for women everywhere. It's just »

The first Amazing Spider-Man felt like a pretty cynical piece of cinema. A reboot of a franchise barely five years dead (and rumored to be born only out of the necessity for Sony to hold on to the rights for the titular character), the finished product was rather underwhelming. A padded runtime, a perfunctory script and a thoroughly dull adversary overruled the undeniable merits of Andrew Garfield as the spandexed web-slinger. That’s not the case this time around – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 feels like a proper movie. It may never reach the wonderful heights of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, but with its goofy sense of humor and supervillain overkill, it’s the best Spider-Man film since that landmark.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.
Directed by Marc Webb.
Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.
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 »

Peter Parker by day, Spider-Man by night…Spidey, also known as The Amazing Spider-Man, is one of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and The Amazing Spider-man 2 from Columbia Pictures opens May 2. But Spider-man was drawn long before he was filmed. He was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko and first appeared in the Marvel comic Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962.
Can you draw Spider-Man?
Do you live in the St. Louis area and want to see The Amazing Spider-man 2 at an advance screening?
To draw Spider-Man, start by sketching an outline of a man. You can position the outline in any way you want. Draw two large insect-like eyes. Draw a line just under the knees on both legs to make the outline of the boots. Draw a line on both hands to show the gloves. Draw crossed lines everywhere apart from boots and gloves. Color the boots, »

There's more than one Little Miss Sunshine in Hollywood. In fact, in the last week or so there are five gals vying for that title. First up, Emma Stone. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress wowed us in a marigold Atelier Versace gown at the flick's London premiere. She paired the gown with a stunning pink lipstick shade (no doubt by Revlon since she is the face of the beauty brand). Next was Jessica Simpson, who flaunted her post-baby bod in a lemon-colored sheath by Yigal Azrouel. You've got to give the mom-of-two extra points for how amazing her toned legs looked in the frock! Similar to Jessica, Kate Middleton opted for a solid yellow sheath but her Roksanda Ilincic's dress featured a white »

The webslinger and his conspicuously male adversaries have some zappy scraps in this reboot sequel, but the most intriguing clashes here are between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy
Here is the second new Spider-Man film or the fifth, if you are tactless enough to remember the once colossal Sam Raimi-directed trilogy that finished in 2007, quickly to become the boringly obsolete boot to this reboot a sobering lesson in consumer capitalism and franchise movie-making.
This latest Spidey, written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner and directed by Marc Webb, is high-energy entertainment; Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker has rangy charm and there is a genuine romantic spark between him and Emma Stone, as sharp as ever playing Gwen Stacy. Webb at one stage conjures a beautiful seasons-passing montage of Peter Parker's unhappy loneliness that reminded me of the relationship comedy (500) Days of Summer, which made his name. But despite sensational new backstory developments, »
