If you thought Tobey Maguire's Spidey had it tough in the third instalment of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy going up against the Sandman (Thomas Hayden Church) and Venom (Topher Grace), then Andrew Garfield's wall-crawler looks set to face an even bigger challenge in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
We already know that Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) and Paul Giamatti (Sideways) are set to tangle with the web-slinger as Electro and Rhino, while Chris Cooper (American Beauty) will portray Norman Osborn. Throw into that the possibility of an evil Harry Osborn (Dane DeHann) and rumours that Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) will portray Black Cat, and the Marc Webb-directed sequel appears to be setting itself up for a supervillain overload. Not so according to screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek Into Darkness), who offered up a few words on the growing roster of villains in the second »

Emma Stone has been spotted filming on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wearing some very familiar clothes, which may offer up a huge spoiler (or confirm what everyone is pretty much expecting anyway) concerning the fate of Gwen Stacy in Sony's forthcoming superhero sequel:
Now, if you're a fan of the wall-crawler, you may recognise that outfit from the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man #121, where Gwen Stacy meets her demise at the hands of the Green Goblin (or rather Peter Parker, who misjudges the give on his webbing as he tries to save his love when she's thrown from the Brooklyn Bridge / George Washington Bridge):
It's been speculated that director Marc Webb would follow the classic 'Night Gwen Stacy Died' storyline pretty much from the first moment it was announced that Gwen would appear alongside Andrew Garfield's rebooted Spider-Man, and the casting of Shailene Woodley (The Descendants »

So many articles focus on the Best of everything; The top 10 sports movies, the best 25 killers in horror movie history, the 50 greatest cartoon characters…
This leaves the mundane, mediocre, run-of-the-mill, everyday entities feeling ever so left out. And I for one am starting to feel sorry for them.
So, I thought to myself, “why not write something about the most mediocre thing I can think of?” And the first mediocre thing that sprang to mind was food. Junk food, to be more specific.
With that in mind, I had to try and somehow make the topic of junk food – an embodiment of mediocrity – in to an article worthy of WhatCulture. So what about junk food in movies?
There have, of course, been countless great scenes in cinema history that have involved junk food: The Whammyburger scene in Falling Down when Michael Douglas’ character goes a little crazy, the Mr. Smiley »

Alex Kazhinsky of Lincolnwood is this year's Grand Prize winner in the annual Outguess Ebert contest — and tells me, "It's a big thrill to win your contest after playing it for so many years!"
Kazhinsky had a perfect score across all the categories. "For many years," he says, "I have worked as an actor in Chicago's entertainment industry. I've had speaking roles in independent films, web series, and commercials. Some of my most notable roles are the following:
• A corrupt Chicago Alderman named Cunningham in the web series "DaWiseguys."
•Uncle Steve in the short film "When I Was An Elephant," which won the award for Best Branded Film at the 2011 Chicago International Film Festival.
• Russian crime boss in the short film "The Moment."
"Because I'm an actor," he says, "the only thing I'll say about my age is that I'm in my 30s."
He's been playing the contest since the 1992 Oscars, »
Former SNL genius Kristen Wiig made our pants turn yellow with the brilliant Bridesmaids back in 2011. Since then she’s dabbled in a spot of serious drama in Friends With Kids, appeared in an episode of Portlandia and said goodbye to her career on Saturday Night Live. While she’s completed a ton of work in the last year, most of which are in post-production, it feels like it’s been far too long since she’s been on the big screen. Fear not, the first trailer for her latest, Girl Most Likely (previously titled Imogene) has arrived! And it’s dead funny.
Shifting away from the allure of studio flicks, Wiig’s choice to go the indie route appears to have paid off. From directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, Girl Most Likely follows Imogene, a New York playwright who tries to fake a suicide attempt to get the attention of her ex-boyfriend. »

So Kevin Spacey, right? How great is he? "American Beauty," "Seven." So great. Let's not even waste time by pretending that it's an issue that needs to be debated.Here's what that picture is about: a woman was in Boston, getting her picture taken in front of statues. At the same exact time, Kevin Spacey was going for a jog. And then, for one beautiful moment in time, their paths crossed. And then Kevin jumped up beside the woman and yelled "Photobomb!" And then he went back to jogging, laughing all the way.What a beautiful man, right?--Emily Trainham Read more »

A couple of weeks back we got out first look at Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) in full make-up as Electro on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and now Foxx has been filming alongside Andrew Garfield's web-slinger, albeit as Electro's alter-ego Max Dillon. Take a look at a selection of recent set photos (via CelebBuzz and The Daily Mail), along with a video depicting what could be the first meeting between Spidey and his new nemesis...

We're getting to know the Film Experience community one-by-one. This is going to take us forever! (That's a good thing. Thank you so much for being part of such a big vibrant fanbase.) Today we're talking to Patrick who lives in Germany and writes for DieAcademy.de, a German site devoted to our favorite awards show.
Hi, Patrick. How long have you been reading The Film Experience?
Maybe 6 years? I like this site so much since it's always interesting topics and wonderful to read.
I know you're really into the Oscars but how about the Lolas, Germany's own movie awards. Which German stars do you recommend our international readers get to know?
The Lolas are not as big of a deal as they should be, but I love some German actors who are still too unknown abroad but doing great work all the time, like: Sibel Kikelli (two time Lola »

The burger. The classic, all American institution. But what are the best films to feature these tasty sandwiches?
This week's Clip joint is by Ruth Sloss, a film buyer who also runs her own film recommendation website. If you've got an idea for a future Clip joint, drop an email to email@example.com.
Hollywood and hamburgers, two of the Us's most iconic institutions. None more so when they feature together. Cinema is littered with scenes in diners, burger bars and drive-throughs, their mundane, everyday setting an ideal juxtaposition to high emotional drama. Comic, sad, threatening and nostalgic, every kind of scenario is played out in them.
Top spot unquestionably goes to Pulp Fiction's Royale with Cheese. This iconic Tarantino scene established him as a king of dialogue and spawned hordes of imitators. And then they shot Marvin in the face.

Acclaimed writer, director and producer Alan Ball (True Blood, Six Feet Under, American Beauty) brings his brand new action drama series, Banshee to the UK on Monday 29th April. Banshee stars Antony Starr (Rush) as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Philadelphia, where he continues his criminal activities, even as he’s hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier.
Going hell for leather, this series opener follows Lucas as he makes his way to Banshee to find his former partner-in-crime and lover (Ivana Milicevic, Casino Royale). The good news is that they are indeed reunited. However, the bad is that his ex has since changed her name to Carrie and created a new life for herself complete with defence attorney hubby (Rus Blackwell, Battle Los Angeles) and two kids. Shovelling salt into the wound, Carrie is also no »

E! is trying its hand at scripted series, and one of the projects it has on the docket is the latest from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. The "Gossip Girl" and "The O.C." creators teamed up once again on the series "Laurel Canyon," another Southern California-based television show that E! is looking to air.
The project is described as being about "a young woman who returns to her Hollywood family after her rock-star dad dies," and is one of eight scripted shows E! has in development. Among the others is a "darkly psychological retelling" of "The Prince and the Pauper" called "The Stand-In," a modern retelling of "Great Expectations" about a "morally corrupt family in the diamond business in New York City" called "Expectations" and series produced by Gale Anne Hurd and Kevin Spacey.
These aren't the only new series E! is looking to create. The network is still staying »
E! certainly knows its niche. At its upfront presentation today, the network that spawned a thousand Kardashian series will unveil a programming slate filled with shows united by three Gs: glitz, glamor, and gobs of cash.
Highlights include The Wanted Life, which documents the lives of One Direction rivals and Lindsay Lohan accessories The Wanted; Blinging Up Baby, a special designed to make normal people envy celebrity toddlers; a one-off peek behind the curtain of Hollywood’s “cults, cabals and underground clubs”; and 50 Hours with 50 Cent, which answers one of history’s age-old questions: “What is it like to be 50 Cent? »

Well, it's only taken 52 days, but director Marc Webb has finally dropped something of interest in his daily series of behind-the-scenes tweets from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Last week, we got our first look at Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) in full make-up as Electro, and now Webb has gave us the first official shot of the character, albeit as his alter-ego Max Dillon:

To be labelled a ‘character actor’ is something of a double-edged sword. For while it acknowledges you’ve found a niche, it also implies a certain comfort at being typecast; a familiarity in filling the same shoes again and again. And while some will forever coast on a breakthrough role, others will snatch their chance to cement their place in cinema. The list below is comprised exclusively of the latter category. They stand in the shadows, swooping in to steal the scene. Far from relying on the scraps and scripts that fall from the top table, these are the very people for whom ‘difficult’ roles are written. They are the wild cards, the secret weapons; and these seven names in our rogues gallery, having honed their craft to perfection in playing the damaged, devious and downright disturbing, are clearly enjoying themselves in the process.
From the second they step into the frame, »
