Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield: 'Justin Bieber's fame is not healthy'

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andrew Garfield has said that he could have turned out like popstar Justin Bieber if he had become famous at 16.

The 30-year-old actor recently spoke to Time Out London about his success, revealing that he's glad that fame came to him in his late 20s.

He shared: "If I'd had these opportunities when I was younger, I would have been Justin Bieber. If you are a 16-year-old kid and you can do whatever the f**k you want, you're making trillions of dollars and you have a leopard-print Ferrari, it's not healthy.

"If I was going through what I'm going through now when I was 16, I might have ended up in jail."

Bieber has made headlines for his alleged bad behaviour - such as his suspicion of DUI arrest and most recently missing a court date.

Garfield gained fame after appearing in David Fincher's The Social Network in 2010. He »

Movie Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

16 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.

There is a common misconception that I feel I need to deal with. In 2007 Spider-Man 3 turned out to be quite the travesty. The main issue leveled at it was that it had too many villains. That was never the case, how ever many people said it. It was also a bloody lazy thing to say. The characters were utterly mishandled. Long established story elements were messed around with, and the one villain that everyone wanted to see was completely miscast. Emo Parker however, cannot be explained. That was just terrible. »

How to Play... a superhero: Tips from Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman

19 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.

It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?

With a little input from those who have already saved the world, »

Emma Stone struggles to follow own path

20 hours ago | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Los Angeles, April 19: Actress Emma Stone says it's important for people to make their own decisions in life, adding this isn't something she always finds easy.

The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" actress who is dating actor and co-star Andrew Garfield said that she struggles to find direction in life, reports contactmusic.com.

"I absolutely think that people should follow their own path. And that's probably something, oddly, I have gone back to over the past couple of years and I think that's the thing I have struggled with more recently than ever," said Stone.

The 25-year-old beauty believes it is important to make a good. »

Video: Man Creates Real-Life Spider-man Web Shooter

18 April 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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, »

Will a 'Spider-Man' / 'Avengers' Crossover Ever Happen?

18 April 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Garfield's "Spider-Man" Will Never Crossover?

18 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Keen to see Andrew Garfield's "The Amazing Spider-Man" character crossover with the X-Men or "The Avengers"? You'll be waiting a hell of a long time.

Producer Avi Arad, who has been attached to all five live-action "Spider-Man" films produced thus far, tells IGN that basically such a crossover will only happen after he's out of this franchise:

"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. There's so much to tell about Spider-Man. There's so much to tell about the Sinister Six. The relationship between Spider-Man and Venom will bring a whole other world in.

We really feel very confident that we have so much to do. Peter Parker is unique; he's really different. He's not an Avenger. He's not an X-Man. He's unique and we revere that. And we'd rather work really »

The Amazing Spider-Man producers rule out Avengers crossover until “we’ve run out of ideas”

18 April 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that Sony has laid out the future of its Spider-Man franchise with The Amazing Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man 4, Venom and The Sinister Six, and Marvel Studios having reportedly mapped out the Marvel Cinematic Universe until 2028, it’s the question that just won’t go away… will we see Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler appearing alongside The Avengers?

Marvel Studios may have kept quiet on the issue, but we’ve heard several comments from the likes of Garfield, director Marc Webb and others affiliated with the Spidey franchise raising hopes that we may get to see the big Marvel crossover one day. However, according to producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, it’s not going to happen until the Sony franchise has “run out of ideas”.

“I think I’m probably a little bit of the militant here,” Arad told IGN (via Cbm). “I think it will »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 review: black and white and web all over

18 April 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

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. »

Box Office: ‘Spider-Man 2′ Swings Into Action O’seas With $5.5 Mil

17 April 2014 5:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Slinging its web to a few overseas territories early, Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ grossed nearly $5.5 million in opening day from four markets, the largest of which is the U.K., which contributed $2.7 million.

In each of the debut territories, “Spider-Man 2″ scored the largest single opening-day gross this year, according to Sony. In Australia, the film grossed $1.7 million, followed by Germany with $1.1 million (both territories bowed the pic on Thursday), with Belgium grossing $190,000 on Wednesday.

The sequel, which expands to 15 total international territories this weekend, bows May 2 Stateside. The nearly month-early overseas rollout was designed to give the film — a hugely important title for Sony — more breathing room before the World Cup and the onslaught of later summer franchise titles.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

17 April 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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.

This sequel somehow manages to be very heavy on plot, yet feather-light in its writing. There are two separate bad guys this time (Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Dane DeHaan »

Directed by Marc Webb.

Synopsis:

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 »
