Director: Marc Webb
Running Time: 142 minutes
Extras: Making Of, Deleted Scenes, Commentary, Music Video
The reboot nobody particularly wanted spreads its wings into new territory. Having that awkward backstory out of the way means that The Amazing Spider-man 2 can become its own beast. With that in mind, it’s clear to see that this film had absolutely no idea of what it wanted to do. This is The Amazing Spider-man 2’s greatest problem, it is all over the place in terms of tone and plot points. We start off with an interesting sequence set aboard a plane. The scene gives us some more backstory into Peter Parker’s parents’ disappearance. Hitting hard along the lines of spy espionage thrillers or terrorist centred action films of the 90s, »

Marc Webb’s epic telling of the Spider-Man story continues when The Amazing Spider-man 2 swings onto Blu-ray and DVD this September 1st and to celebrate we’ve got 5 copies of the Blu-ray to give-away!
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.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is available on Digital HD now and on Blu-ray & DVD on 1st Sept and you can buy your copy here. »

Stone, sporting a newly cropped hairdo, looked elegant in an emerald green Valentino couture gown, while co-star Keaton arrived in a black tuxedo.
The were joined by fellow Birdman stars including Edward Norton, with wife Shauna Robertson, and Andrea Riseborough, who looked dramatic in a black high-neck gothic-style dress with a silver cross, while wearing her hair up in a bouffant quiff.
Amy Ryan, who stars as Keaton's character's long-suffering ex-wife, was also in attendance, looking understated in a strapless navy crepe gown.
He attempts to recapture the spotlight by starring in a Broadway play, but the lines between reality and fiction begin to blur.
Recently taking stock of his career, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu began to wonder if he might have gotten stuck in a creative rut of his own making.
“It was like I was on a ladder, and I was getting a little too comfortable,” says the 51-year-old filmmaker as he holds out two clenched fists, miming the grip on that ladder. “I was just doing my work. It was a habit. I was stuck, half out of fear and half out of safety. And I said to myself, ‘I’m going to let go of the ladder.’ ”
For Inarritu, letting go meant taking a stab at his first full-fledged comedy, albeit one with a strong undercurrent of existential despair. In the director’s self-reflexive “Birdman,” Michael Keaton stars as an actor once famous for playing a superhero, now trying to save his »

Everyone at the 71st Venice Film Festival can head home now, because Emma Stone just won the red carpet. Wearing a dramatic tulle Valentino Couture gown, we dare say the 25-year-old has never looked better. The ultra-plunging neckline isn't a style that Emma typically rocks, and the deep green color is a new color for the actress as well. But honestly, we're not sure why the star hasn't dabbled into the styles before—they're phenomenal on her! It's not just the drool-worthy gown that caught our eye though—it's Stone's fresh chop. She rocked a similar bob haircut while promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last spring, and after a summer of longer locks it seems she's gone back »
Venice – Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s bold "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" sent the 71st Venice Film Festival flying high with journos almost unanimously raving about the pic following the packed morning press screening before stars Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, and Andrea Riseborough pranced down the Lido red carpet on a balmy evening amid cheering fans and frenzied paparazzi.
The film, a Fox Searchlight/New Regency presentation, produced by Inarritu, John Lesher, Arnon Milchan and James W. Skotchdopole, will be released by Fox in North America on October 17 and will go out internationally in early 2015.
At the post-screening presser Inarritu said that after making purely dramatic films, such as “21 Grams” and “Babel,” he wanted to “go away from my confort zone and jump into something that I really wanted, but that I never thought would happen: which is to laugh on the set.”

The Venice International Film Festival has a long history of introducing Oscar contenders, with critically-acclaimed hits and Best Picture nominees such as The Wrestler, Black Swan and last year's Gravity making their world premieres at the festival. This year's Venice International Film Festival kicked off earlier this week with Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, and if the overwhelmingly positive reviews are any indication, this could be the year's first major Oscar contender.
The story, as we saw in the first international trailer from last month, centers on Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton), a washed up actor who used to play a famous superhero character on the big screen. He tries to mount a comeback by putting on a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver's What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, although little goes as planned.
Take a look at excerpts from some of the early reviews that have come in from Venice, »
Green with envy! Emma Stone flat-out owned the red carpet at the opening ceremony of the Venice Film Festival and premiere of her film Birdman on Aug. 27. The actress, 25, looked stunning in an emerald tulle gown by Valentino. The full-length number featured a plunging neckline and criss-cross back and also had a knotted tie at the waist to show off her teeny figure. She complemented the dramatic color of the dress with berry shades of makeup. "I played with all cool tones, using rich plums on her [...] »

Venetian perennial Alejandro Inarritu opens this year’s Venice Film Festival with the exhilarating Birdman, a self-referential, biting comedy that channels something of Michael Frayn’s Noises Off but this time it’s for the Twitter generation.
The setting is a Broadway theatre, and our hero (or should I say superhero?) is aging Hollywood star Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton), he of the Birdman superhero trilogy, last seen spreading his wings in the early 1990s. Now Thomson has decided to bring his stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver story to the stage, writing, directing and starring in What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.
Has he undertaken too great a task? Is he just another Hollywood has-been using the New York theatre scene to boost his ego and show of his acting chops? The evil Times critic appears to think so and she is determined that he fail. She is played by Lindsay Duncan, »

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman premiered at the Venice Film Festival only a short time ago and the first reviews are finally hitting the web and they are glowing as well as informative. Alonso Duralde's review at The Wrap the film tells us Inarritu and cinematographer Emanuel Lubezki (Gravity) "have used camera and editing tricks to make the film look like one continuous take, and while it sounds gimmicky, the constantly moving camera and seeming lack of edits underscore the jitteriness of the proceedings". Peter Debruge at Variety is ecstatic in his review opening with a paragraph that should get you primed to see the pic once it hits theaters on October 17: A quarter-century after Batman ushered in the era of Hollywood mega-tentpoles -- hollow comicbook pictures manufactured to enthrall teens and hustle merch -- a penitent Michael Keaton returns with the comeback of the century, Birdman or (The »

Michael Keaton’s character in raved-about Venice Film Festival opener and Competition entry Birdman and the actor himself share a common thread — they both gained enormous fame playing superheroes in the ’90s. In the film, Keaton’s Riggan Thompson is unable to escape his winged, spandex-clad alter ego who haunts, taunts and goads him incessantly. Keaton and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu both feel everybody has their own sort of Birdman, but for Keaton it’s not the caped crusader he played in Tim Burton’s Batman movies. They had a “giant effect” on his career especially as his international profile skyrocketed, but the character isn’t a sort of negative presence. A first question about Batman came up early in a press conference for Birdman in Venice today and Keaton said, “I just came back from Africa and I fucking love elephants, so I’m Ok with the elephant in the room… »
