So, as the music builds to its inevitable crescendo, the camera slowly pans heavenwards and the credits duly roll on yet another year a legion of movie lovers loyally raise their glasses, stare wistfully into the middle distance and thus share fond, warm and altogether welcome memories of the last twelve months of movie making magic.

And with the curtains already beginning to close on us, the foyer slowly emptying and the hulking behemoth that is 2011 looming ominously on the aspect ratioed horizon what better opportunity is there to jump in our DeLoreans and take a nostalgic look back at the past ten years of cinematic splendour in order to pick out ten films that shone like precious jewels from the cavernous depths of 2001 to 2010.

Jesse Eisenberg, Jess Weixler and Jason Ritter To Hand Out Jay Gammill's 'Free Samples'

9 December 2010 10:20 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Jesse Eisenberg might have put one foot in mainstream films such as The Social Network and upcoming animated film Rio, but the actor's other foot is firmly planted in indie world roles as Roger Dodger, The Squid and the Whale and Adventureland. The actor has penciled in a quickie before the holidays called Free Samples, and will appear alongside with Jess Weixler, Jason Ritter, Tippi Hedren, Hallie Pfeiffer, Keir O'Donnell, Jocelyn Donahue and Matt Walsh in a dramedy directed by Jay Gammill. Film Harvest's McKelheer and Eben Kostbar are producing. Gist: Scripted by Jim Beggarly, Weixler stars a a law school drop-out who fills in as a server as a friend's food truck, where she doles out free samples of ice cream.

Confirmed: Chris Zylka Cast as Flash Thompson in ‘Spider-Man’

9 December 2010 4:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Wrap [1] confirms out earlier November 22nd 2010 rumor report that actor Chris Zylka had been cast in Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot as Flash Thompson. Previously: Eugene is better known to comic book fans as Flash Thompson, a character created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, first appearing in Amazing Fantasy #15 published in August 1962. According to wikipedia, the character is "a star high school football player and classmate of Peter Parker (secretly the superhero Spider-Man) who mercilessly bullies "Puny Parker." On the other hand, Flash greatly admires Spider-Man, an irony in which Parker takes some gratification. After graduation, Flash joins the United States Army and is haunted by his combat experiences, leading to alcoholism. Later on in the series, Flash and Peter become friends." Zylka joins a cast which includes Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Spider-Man (well, a couple stuntmen and many computers will also be Spider-Man »

Watch: Jesse Eisenberg & Anne Hathaway As Love Birds In The Animated 'Rio'

9 December 2010 6:27 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Is This Why Pixar's 'Newt' Was Cancelled? Ever since his debut in 2002's "Roger Dodger," Jesse Eisenberg's career has gone from strength to strength. Following that film fairly swiftly with a brilliant performance in Noah Baumbach's "The Squid and the Whale," before having a banner year in 2009 with both Greg Mottola's "Adventureland" and the sleeper hit "Zombieland," he gave the best, and most acclaimed, performance of his career thus far in David Fincher's "The Social Network." But the next time he'll be heard of on screen, following up his almost-certainly Oscar-nominated portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg? He'll be playing a… »

‘Spider-Man’ Began Shooting on Monday; Cinematographer Praises New Red Epic Series Cameras

7 December 2010 3:45 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We knew that Marc Webb's new version of Spider-Man (or, more formally, the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot) for Sony was planning to shoot in early December. And now look, it's early December and there's a post from the film's cinematographer, John Schwartzman, trumpeting about the first day of shooting with Red's new Epic line cameras. (The same tech that will be used [1] for The Hobbit.) Expect to see some set photos soon -- it's virtually impossible to keep a set fully locked down in this era -- but for now you can read the bulk of Mr. Scwartzman's comments after the break. This post appeared on the Red user forums. (via ComingSoon [2]) A summation of his comments might be "the Red Epic is awesome!" as Mr. Schwartzman praises the high imaging resolution, light weight and flexibility. Today was Epic, Monday December 6 marks the first day the Red Epic camera was »

First Look: Emma Stone Goes Blonde for Spider-man

5 December 2010 10:20 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

As you know by now, Superbad, The House Bunny, and Zombieland star Emma Stone will be playing Gwen Stacy in the Marc Webb-directed 3D reboot of Spider-Man. Although she's known as a redhead, her natural hair color is blonde. We haven't seen much of that on the big screen. This week they were doing costume tests on the comic book adaptation and Stone was seen sporting her new blonde hairdo on the red carpet at Trevor Live at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday. Hit the jump to see what the actress might look like in Spider-Man. Gwen Stacy from the comic books: Here is a photo from JustJared [1]: [2] About Stone's casting in the film, director Marc Webb has been previously quoted as saying: “The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice. At the heart of the story of Peter Parker is not only the amazing Spider-Man, »

'Spider-Man': Campbell Scott as Peter Parker's dad?

3 December 2010 3:28 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The 2012 Spider-Man reboot is just about to start filming, and The Hollywood Reporter has some information on the supporting cast. Most notable: Campbell Scott (from Damages and the misanthropic classic Roger Dodger) has apparently signed on for the role of Peter Parker’s father, while Julianne Nicholson (Criminal Intent!) is still in talks to play Mama Parker. It’s unclear how big the roles would be, but just the fact that Peter’s parents are appearing in the movie at all is interesting. In the original comics canon, Peter’s parents were secret agents; In the alternate-reality Ultimate canon, Daddy »

More Casting for Spider-man: New Villain & Parker's Parents

3 December 2010 1:45 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures and director Marc Webb are starting to fill up the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man 3D reboot. They've gone ahead and cast Campbell Scott (Roger Dodger, The Spanish Prisoner) in the film, and Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, The Darjeeling Limited), Annie Parisse (Rubicon, National Treasure) and Julianne Nicholson (Kinsey, Little Black Book) are currently in talks. 

Scott and Nicholson will play Peter Parker’s parents in the film. This will be interesting because these characters have rarely been seen in the comics. There's no information on if they will appear in flashbacks, in a prologue or during the course of the story.

As for Khan, he will take on the role of a villain named Nels Van Adder, and Parisse will be the villain’s wife. Rhys Ifans has previously been cast as a villain named The Lizard.

In the comics, Van Adder was a former research assistant »

Spider-Man reboot news continues to mystify

3 December 2010 1:40 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Heat Vision, Borys Kit's fanboy division of The Hollywood Reporter, has learned of a few new additions to Columbia Pictures' upcoming Spider-Man reboot, additions that will likely have long-time fans of the webslinger scratching their heads in puzzlement.

Irrfan Khan, prolific Indian actor and perhaps best known as the police inspector in award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, is reported to have signed on in a villainous role for the upcoming action blockbuster. Khan joins Rhys Ifans, who will portray Dr. Curt Connors (Aka The Lizard), in the new film's villain ranks and will be playing a character named Van Atter. The announcement has led to widespread and perplexed mutterings among Spider-Man comic aficionados, as such a character is not known to exist in any of the various Spider-Man titles. Annie Parisse, of AMC's Rubicon, will play Van Atter's wife.

Irrfan Khan to Play New Villain Van Atter in Spider-man Reboot; Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson to Play Peter Parker’s Parents

3 December 2010 1:19 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Spider-Man was already going to have to face down the Lizard in Marc Webb’s upcoming 3D Spider-Man reboot, he now has to contend with a second villain.  According to Heat Vision, Irrfan Khan (who is doing outstanding work on the new season of In Treatment) is in talks to play a new baddie named “Van Atter”.  Annie Parisse (Rubicon) is in negotiations to play Van Atter’s wife.

And if the spidey sense wasn’t already going crazy, the film is throwing Peter Parker’s rarely-seen parents into the mix.  Campbell Scott (Roger Dodger) has been cast as Papa Parker while Julianne Nicholson (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) is in talks to play Mama Parker.  Hit the jump for more on the film, which is set to open on July 3, 2012.

It’s currently unknown whether Mr. and Mrs. Parker will appear in flashbacks, a prologue, or during the course of the movie. »

‘Spider-Man’ Casting: Peter Parker’s Parents and A Second Villain

3 December 2010 1:01 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

HeatVision [1] has learned that Campbell Scott (Roger Dodger, The Spanish Prisoner) has signed on, and Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, The Darjeeling Limited), Annie Parisse (Rubicon, National Treasure) and Julianne Nicholson (Kinsey, Little Black Book) are in talks to join the cast of Marc Webb's 3D Spider-Man reboot. Find out which character they will play, after the jump. Scott and Nicholson will play Parker’s parents, Richard and Mary Parker, who leave their son an orphan. As you might recall, Parker's uncle Ben and Aunt May become his parental guardians. Its not clear if they will appear in flashbacks or a prologue, but I wouldn't expect them to have a big role in the film. We previously learned that Columbia Pictures were casting a young actor to play the boy-age Peter Parker, so one could assume the parents are to be used in those scenes (sequences). Khan will play Van Atter, »

17 October 2010 8:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Emma Farley casts her eye over the latest happenings from the indie movie scene...

Film festivals are instrumental in spreading the word about the latest indie sensation. In fact, many recent big festival award winners have gone to massive success at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscars (Little Miss Sunshine, Precious, Fish Tank).

Jesse Eisenberg: Privacy settings engaged

15 October 2010 10:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

You won't find Jesse Eisenberg, formidable as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, on Facebook. It's a different kind of attention he craves

Jesse Eisenberg is eager to deflate expectations. This, he assures me, will be a mediocre interview. His answers shall be trite and generic. He doesn't have a clear thought process at this stage in the day. He'll ramble. It'd be better were I to lie on the couch and have him quiz me instead (he sees two therapists a week, so he's pretty proficient in probing). Words rattle out of him: self-deprecating scattershot from a salmon-shirted manboy.

Muting the buzz is no easy task. After a decade as the go-to guy for directors in need of a sweetly inept alter ego – Roger Dodger, The Squid and the Whale, Adventureland – he's suddenly, at 27, playing a rather more formidable real-life character: Mark Zuckerberg, in David Fincher's The Social Network, »

Living Wake, The | Review

Director: Sol Tryon Writer: Peter Kline, Mike O'Connell Starring: Mike O’Connell, Jesse Eisenberg, Jim Gaffigan K. Roth Binew (Mike O'Connell) is a flamboyant, arrogant and eccentric drunk whose incessant pontifications – made in an exaggeratedly aristocratic accent – are scribbled down verbatim by his loyal best friend, authorized biographer, and rickshaw-cum-pedicab chauffeur, Mills (Jesse Eisenberg). (Mills is also a poet extraordinaire.) The Living Wake opens with a Cliff Notes montage of K. Roth’s life of failure which wraps up with the life-changing declaration by his doctor that K. Roth is dying of a nameless disease. That’s right kids – K. Roth is dying prematurely, foolishly and namelessly. The narrative itself commences in the morning of the very day that K. Roth’s life is set to expire (at 7:30pm). K. Roth and Mills scuttle across town on their makeshift rickshaw-cum-pedicab arranging the last-minute preparations for K. Roth’s death, »
