While plot details remain under wraps, we do know that the movie is being produced by Jerry Weintraub and Alan Riche and exec. produced by Yates and Mike Richardson. Though Jackson is in talks for a leading role, there’s no word on who he might play. Also, Christoph Waltz seems to be another actor who’s in talks to join.
It’s taken a while for this project to get off the ground. According to sources, “Yates finally put together a five-minute revisualization presentation to present to Warner Bros. so they can understand how the movie would work.”

Last week, Sony Pictures finally released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but there was something that most didn't see within this footage. The website ElectroArrives.com was flashed briefly around the 2:06 mark, and the site itself features Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) checking out surveillance footage from a touchscreen table. While there are no links to click on at the site, it does feature a countdown clock, which suggests something big is in store for fans on New Years Eve. Click on the photo to check out the website for yourself, then read on for more details.
Spider-Man himself is said to drop in on the Times Square festivities on New Year's Eve later this month, with Sony Pictures reportedly showing brand new footage on the Times Square video screens and the live broadcast. While it is isn't know what will be shown on New Year's Eve, »
Click on the image below to view the site. The site above was discovered at around the 2:07 mark in the recently released trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (1080p versions at least anyway). It's an intriguing addition to the viral campaign, but before you get too excited, it appears as if this is counting down to the recently announced unveiling of new footage from the sequel which will take place in Times Square during the New Year celebrations. Whether this could be an indication that it will be released online simultaneously remains to be seen, but it now seems possible at least! In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he »
Samuel L. Jackson is in talks to join Warner Bros.' Tarzan, which stars Alexander Skarsgård as the title character. We reported in September that Christoph Waltz was circling the villain role, which he has now been confirmed for.
The story centers on John Clayton III (Alexander Skarsgård), an "ape man" who lives in the jungle. He is tasked by Queen Victoria to investigate a military conflict in the Congo. Although these story details have not been confirmed, Christoph Waltz is reportedly playing a military man who comes across Tarzan in the jungle.
Samuel L. Jackson had actually been in talks to star back in 2012 as George Washington Williams, a Civil War veteran and mercenary who teams up with Tarzan to take out an evil warlord. At the time, scheduling couldn't be worked out with the actor, with Warner Bros. offering the role to Jamie Foxx, but he »

Sony were seemingly trying to play catch up with Marvel and Disney by creating their own wider universe for Spider-Man when they announced the release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4. The release of the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 seemed like the best place to start this, but one element may not be coming back for the fourth installment - the wall crawler himself Andrew Garfield.
In an interview with Yahoo!, Garfield gave a quick overview of his current contract status, "I mean I’m under contract for another one after this… as far as a fourth one? That's not anything to do with me."
He also went on to say what we can expect from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the first stepping stone of Sony's Spidey universe, "I think what we’re doing here is we've established the world. And now we get »
We’re another week closer to Christmas, and I was very happy to see Frozen take the top spot at the box office this past weekend. In the meantime, this week’s new Trailer Trashin’ examines yet another of next year’s big upcoming films – The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Premise: Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) continues to struggle with balancing his life as a high school student and his crime-fighting responsibilities as Spider-Man. When Peter begins to investigate more about his father’s past, with the help of his friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), he realizes that the new threats of Max Dillon/Electo (Jamie Foxx) and Aleksei Systevich/The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) both have one thing in common – OsCorp.
My take: The most feedback I’ve ever received for an installment of Trailer Trashin’ is still my column from early May 2012, where I examined the final trailer for that summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man, »

A lot of things are dividing fans over the new Spider-Man series, but few more than the decision to quickly move forward with multiple villains. The upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 has no fewer than three villains, which of course was part of the downfall of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3.
Sony’s intention is, once again, to eventually build towards The Sinister Six in The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which is due out in 2018. One thing they’ll need to button down first, however, is getting Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) on board, as the actor is only set for the first three films as of now.
”I’m under contract for another one after this. As far as a fourth one? That’s not anything to do with me,” says Garfield.
Of course, it’s not likely that Sony will have any trouble getting the actor back for a fourth outing but »

When Sony made their surprising announcement in June that both The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 were given the green light, most assumed that Andrew Garfield would be back as Peter Parker/Spider-Man for both movies. However, according to a recent interview, that is not the case. Here's what the actor had to say.
"I mean I'm under contract for another one after this... as far as a forth one? That's not anything to do with me. But yeah, I think what we're doing here is we've established the world. And now we get to really play inside that world. Use our imagination, and kind of expand. That's what this film is."
The actor also added that he felt the first film, The Amazing Spider-Man, had something missing from it, due to the number of story elements that had to be balanced.
"I think there was something »

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 »
★★★☆☆The latest animated feature from DreamWorks may, if the title is anything to go by, sound a little rough around the edges. However, The Croods (2013) - co-written and directed by Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders, and featuring the voice talents of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds - is a witty take on the difficulties of letting go of yesterday and embracing the future. Eep (Stone) is frustrated by life with her family, the Croods, a prehistoric clan led by her father Grug (Cage). Desperate to break free from the constraints of a lifestyle she sees as prehistoric, Eep leaves her kin and ventures beyond her cave.

Any list of most beloved celebrities is sure to include Bill Murray and Emma Stone. So, it was a foregone conclusion that a video of them together would be winning. Stone and Murray, who were in Hawaii shooting Cameron Crowe's next movie, were the surprise guests at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam's annual tower lighting celebration. It's a short video, but the charm-per-minute rate is off the charts. »

Some people have visions of the future. Me?
I went and saw it with my own eyes.
Behind the ridiculously fortified superdoors of OsCorp Industries headquarters the future waits patiently for the rest of us to arrive. Only a privileged few reside there — guardians of the secrets that only time (and intrepid journalists!) will reveal.
Under pressure to quiet growing Wall Street rumors of plans gone awry, OsCorp spokesman Donald Menken gave me a glimpse into that future.
I was only given limited access to this room, and legally I can »
