Drew Goddard cut his teeth in the entertainment industry as a writer for Joss Whedon on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Since then he's stayed largely in the TV world, having worked on Alias, Lost, and Marvel's Daredevil series, but he continues to flex some increasingly big movie muscles. He wrote Cloverfield, he directed Cabin in the Woods (which he co-wrote with Whedon), and he was supposed to write and direct The Sinister Six before the Andrew Garfield-version of Spider-Man fell to the wayside. Goddard's latest movie credit is as the screenwriter of The Martian, which he adapted from Andy Weir's fantastic book about an astronaut who gets mistakenly left for dead on Mars. In fact, Goddard was the original director on the project but had to pass when The...

Andrew Garfield‘s work in new indie drama “99 Homes” has led him to question Hollywood’s celebrity culture, and all of the responsibilities that come with it — like promoting his own movies in interviews. “Why the fuck am I doing this?” the former “Amazing Spider-Man” star asked a Vulture reporter. “Coming in today to do interviews, I’m like, Why?” he said. “I know that I’m an actor and it’s part of the job, and I feel lucky I get to do that, but with the interviews, it’s such a weird thing. What do I have to say? »

Evictors assemble. Here’s the final trailer for 99 Homes, the topical thriller starring Michael Shannon as Rick Carver, a ruthless Florida real estate magnate who kicks Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) out of his house before the jobless single father can battle the bank that has cheated him. Nash becomes determined to get his family's home back and protect his mother (Laura Dern) and son (newcomer Noah Lomax) from the fallout. He resorts to teaming up with the guy who… »
99 Problems and questions. Andrew Garfield unleashed his many thoughts about celebrity culture, his career, and his personal life in a loaded new interview with New York Magazine's Vulture. According to the writer, Kyle Buchanan, Garfield -- who was promoting his new movie, 99 Homes, a thriller that highlights America's mortgage crisis -- was already agitated when they met in one of the rooms of a plush Beverly Hills hotel. "Why the f--k am I doing this?" Garfield, 32, questioned. "Coming in today to do interviews, I’m like, [...] »
Andrew Garfield knows all too well the pitfalls of fame. In his latest interview with New York Magazine, the 99 Homes star opens up about why he's struggling to find a balance between letting fans in on his personal life and maintaining some semblance of privacy. "My priority is the work, and the work is dependent on people not knowing very much about me. So where's the balance? Where's the line that I have to walk, and we all have to walk? Because I do want to make a difference in the world, I really do, and that's a really cheesy thing to want," the actor shared. Garfield also said that he feels that he's "not accepted" in today's culture. "We're »
“Celebrity is the new religion, as far as I can see, along with money, power, status. It’s all the same umbrella — the seductive forces of evil, really,” Andrew Garfield told Vulture. It’s safe to say the years under the microscope of public scrutiny during “The Amazing Spider-Man” wasn’t the young actor’s favorite time in the whole world. He’s been backlashing on it hard on his recent press rounds, and who can blame him? So, as he transitions out of superhero movie world and returns back to indie films, including his latest movie, “99 Homes,” don’t be surprised if you see him dive into character actor roles for some time to shake off the aftertaste of Peter Parker. And if you expect him to take a tentpole gig any time soon you’re probably going to be disappointed. Read More: Review: Ramin Bahrani's '99 Homes' »

"Why the fuck am I doing this?" Andrew Garfield said, agitated. He was sitting in front of me in a nicely appointed Beverly Hills hotel room, recalling the feeling of dread he'd felt that morning as he faced a long day of press to promote his new film 99 Homes. "Coming in today to do interviews, I’m like, Why?" he said. "I know that I’m an actor and it's part of the job, and I feel lucky I get to do that, but with the interviews, it’s such a weird thing. What do I have to say?"As it turned out, Garfield had quite a bit to say. 99 Homes was a good starting place: In it, he plays a poor laborer whose family is evicted during the housing crisis, after which he's quickly seduced and mentored by an amoral real-estate developer (Michael Shannon) who convinces him that the »

Two films we’re looking forward to recently kicked off production and seemingly in an effort to combat low-quality unofficial set photos, they’ve already released their first images. First up, Syriana helmer Stephen Gaghan is finally back in the director’s chair with Gold. Led by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez, seen above (via EW), the story follows a geologist and prospector who venture into the Indonesian jungle where they start mining and a scandal erupts. Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Bruce Greenwood, and Toby Kebbell, The Weinstein Company will likely distribute it next fall.
Next up, Mel Gibson is also back in the director’s chair for the first time since 2006’s Apocalypto. Hacksaw Ridge is a World War II drama which features Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, “a medic and the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor after saving dozens »

While we thought it could sneak into the end of the 2015 calendar, it looks like Paramount is holding off a release of Martin Scorsese‘s priest drama Silence until after its rumored Cannes premiere. As we wait for the first trailer, today brings a few updates on the adaptation of Shûsaku Endô‘s novel, which follows Andrew Garfield as Father Rodrigues, a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan with a fellow priest amid rumors that Rodrigues’ mentor has abandoned the Church.
Ahead of the film’s release, earlier this year Approaching Silence was published (pick it up here), a novel which features a collection of essays looking back at the real-life background of Endô’s work. Perhaps most intriguing to our audience, it also features an afterword from Scorsese in which he describes bringing to life what “can’t be seen or described or named.” He references the “astonishing »

Tom Holland may have bagged the job but, but this Vulture mash-up trailer makes a strong case that Spider-Gwen is the film Sony need to make.
Spider-Gwen is an alternate reality version of Peter Parker's late girlfriend Gwen Stacy, set in a world in which it was her who was bitten by the radioactive spider and became a superhero.
She was introduced in the 'Spider-Verse' storyline and was popular enough to be given her own solo comic.
Holland will make his debut as Parker in next year's Captain America: Civil War (under a partnership between Sony and Marvel) before going on to star in a new Spider-Man film.
But if there's any justice in the world, maybe one day Emma will get her chance. »

THR’s awards analyst sits down with the filmmaker whom Roger Ebert called “the director of the decade” and the Oscar-nominated character actor to discuss their thriller about America’s recent housing crisis.
“Please, Donald Trump, watch this movie,” Ramin Bahrani, the writer/director, says as I sit down with him and the Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon in New York City. We’re taping episode four of The Hollywood Reporter‘s weekly awards podcast Awards Chatter, and the topic is 99 Homes, their film about America’s recent foreclosure crisis and how a Florida man (Andrew Garfield) whose home is repossessed ends up working for the real estate broker who evicted him and his family (Shannon). Bahrani’s hope is that the drama, which plays like a thriller, with teach the current frontrunner for the Gop presidential nomination — and all who see it — a little more empathy since, »

Despite the mixed reception to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Andrew Garfield’s acting career definitely hasn’t taken too much of a hit, as he recently finished working with Martin Scorsese and will also soon be seen in Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge. The British actor has actually landed the lead role in the World War II set movie and will star alongside Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer and Rachel Griffiths.
The film will see him playing a solider who was ostracized and made to serve as a medic in the Pacific for his refusal to carry a weapon after being drafted into the army, only to later be branded a hero after saving an entire unit of allied troops.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond Doss (Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, »

The movie is based on the life of Desmond T. Doss, a medic and the first conscientious objector (someone who claims the right to refuse military service) to win the Congressional Medal of Honor after saving dozens of soldiers during the Battle of Okinawa.
“While production has only just begun, there is already incredible camaraderie between the cast,” Gibson said in a statement. “Not only is Andrew perfect for the role of Desmond Doss, the entire cast are an incredible mix of experience, depth and exciting up and coming talent.”
Gibson is directing from a script by Robert Schenkkan, Andrew Knight and “We Were Soldiers” screenwriter Randall Wallace. Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer and Rachel Griffiths also star. »

Oscar-winning director Mel Gibson has started production on “Hacksaw Ridge” in New South Wales, Australia and released the first official image from the film. Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn are joined by Gibson’s fellow Australian actors Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer and Oscar nominee Rachel Griffiths. “Hacksaw Ridge” tells the extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond Doss (Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing a gun. Believing that the war was just but killing was nevertheless wrong, he was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines. »
