Many fans of Sam Raimi’s initial Spider-Man trilogy were skeptical when – only five years later – director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) delivered The Amazing Spider-Man to theaters. Some balked at the thought of rebooting the franchise so soon after Spider-Man 3, while others were hopeful that this new version could rectify the mistakes of that previous film and give the character a fresh start.
Reaction to The Amazing Spider-Man may still be a bit mixed, given the film’s tendency to tread on a bit too much familiar ground regarding the origin of everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood webslinger. However, one point that most fans can agree on is that ...

"It's so much fun," Foxx told Yahoo Movies. "The costume is great, they were very creative with it. It's part of a remarkable legacy, Spider-Man. I mean, when you're growing up as a kid, you know, that's everything. So to be able to be in that is just amazing."
During the same interview, Foxx confirmed that footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will screen at this year's San Diego Comic-Con International, which takes place in July.

"Amazing Spider-Man 2" actor Jamie Foxx opened up to Yahoo! Movies about his transformation into a comic book super villain. We've already seen a sneak peek of his Electro persona during a few scenes shot in Times Square, but judging by Foxx's comments, there will be more to Electro's look than just blue body paint and a hoodie.
"Oh, man, it's so much fun," says Foxx about the experience. "The costume is great. They were very creative with it... It's a couple hours of work [to get into makeup], but it's really so much fun. It's part of a remarkable legacy: Spider-Man. I mean, when you're growing up as a kid, you know, that's everything. So to be able to be in that is just amazing."
Foxx also revealed that San Diego Comic Con attendees could be the first to see Foxx's total Electro makeover.

A new, more party-orientated trailer has been released for Disney Pixar's upcoming Monsters Inc. prequel Monsters University. The film will reveal how Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) first became friends. Here's the official plot synopsis, followed by the new trailer:
"Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best scarers come from Monsters University (Mu). But during his first semester at Mu, Mike's plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, "Sulley", a natural-born Scarer. The pair's out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University's elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right."

Yahoo! Movies has launched a trailer for the upcoming feature Metallica: Through the Never, featuring a filmed performance by the metal legends... but make no mistake, this isn't your usual concert documentary; instead, Metallica's music accompanies a sweeping apocalyptic fantasy adventure focusing on the wild escapades of a young roadie named Trip (Dane DeHaan of The Place Beyond the Pines, Kill Your Darlings and Amazing Spider-Man 2) on an urgent mission for the band during a sold-out concert. Written and directed by Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll), produced by Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth) and shot in 3D with some scenes employing up to 24 cameras at once, Through the Never follows Trip as he tries to recover a mysterious item needed for the show; along the way, he gets into a car crash, finds himself in the midst of a clash between protesters and riot police, and »

It's hard for Hollywood to make a decent video game film, but it's even harder for the gaming industry to make decent video games based off movies. E.T. remains at the top of worst game lists. The Tron game was a big flop, and sure Batman has had his fair share of good games...but he's also had Batman Forever and Batman Begins which speak for themselves in their mediocrity. I composed a list of some of the best video games directly spawned from a movie. Enjoy!

I replayed this game recently, and I have to say it holds up much better than the movie. It's challenging, fun, and an all around great clone of the ever so popular arcade fighter you'd play in the 90s! Sure, it doesn't have music by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, but the option »

It’s become abundantly clear in the last year that the world of comic book movies has changed in the wake of The Avengers. While Warner Bros. and DC look to jumpstart their shared movie universe with next month’s Man of Steel, Fox and Sony are taking matters into their own hands with the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises, respectively.
Casting announcements for both Marvel properties have run rampant for months now, but while Sony has been revealing which iconic characters the Amazing Spider-man 2 actors will be portraying, Fox has taken quite the opposite approach with regard to its new cast additions for next year’s time-bending mutant adventure X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Another day, another collection of new photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One of the photos is from director Marc Webb's Twitter feed, and shows a futuristic room the director has labeled as "the future". In the future, people just leave their clothes and gun strewn about. At least there's the digital lock by the door, and hopefully the security has been upgraded from the first film where anyone was welcome as long as they could solve a puzzle (a.k.a. "Bridge Troll Security"). There's also some leaked photos from the set, and as you'll see Spider-Man has a very important call to take. If this is his cell phone, your guess is as good as mine as to where he keeps it on his skin-tight costume. Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, »

While we were disappointed Matthew Vaughn vacated to directors chair following his impressive prequel X-men: First Class, after the terrific job he did with X2, Bryan Singer was the natural choice to coax back into the evolutionary Marvel universe. Few can argue Singer knows this world like the back of his hand and with the sequel to the franchise he began in 2000, he crafted one of the best ever comic-book efforts that belongs right up there alongside Raimi’s Spider-man 2, Nolan’s The Dark Knight and Whedon’s The Avengers.
Singer is currently shooting the mutant-filled follow-up to First Class, which will see the cast of young and old come together in a plot of interweaving and alternative timelines. Check out this first classic, 70s-style look at the returning Hugh Jackman as Logan and Nicholas Hoult’s Hank McCoy. We’ve also added an earlier image of James McAvoy »

Another batch of images from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have landed online, and they appear to be a continuation of the sequence that was snapped yesterday involving Spidey, a bus, and Paul Giamatti’s villain Rhino. In these new images, Andrew Garfield’s titular character comes face-to-face with Giamatti's villainous Rhino and the two become involved in a bit of a skirmish that ends, well, somewhat cartoonishly. Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014. Courtesy of Fan-Girl.org (via Cbm).

Move over Jamie Foxx, there's a new Spider-Man bad guy on set. But also, seriously, move over, because he's driving an 18-wheeler and doesn't seem all that cautious.
"Amazing Spider-Man 2" director Marc Webb tweeted a picture of Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich over the weekend. Sytsevich is better known as the Rhino, but we're still in the dark about what exactly Giamatti's Rhino suit will look like. But for now we have a Twitter picture as well as a few other shots of the villain in action, which you can check out below.

Anytime a big blockbuster is about to shoot scenes in public, the studios tend to release official photos of the characters to make sure that the first shots that fans see don't end up being paparazzi ones. "Man of Steel," "Captain America 2," "the Amazing Spider-Man 2" have all done that, but MGM has yet to do that for its upcoming "Robocop" reboot and the film has been shooting for months. Fans have seen lots of blurry and uninteresting photos, which ended up hurting any anticipation that they may have had. As a result, the studio also lost confidence in the film, taking away its summer release date and placing it for release in February of 2014. Today we have more photos from the movie that's been shooting at the Vancouver Olympic Cauldron, giving us a look at Joel Kinnaman as Robocop. Check out the photos below. Photos: (click to enlarge »
Yesterday, The Amazing Spider-man 2 director Mark Webb officially released the first image of Paul Giamatti as the heavily tattooed Russian headcase Aleksei ‘The Rhino’ Sytsevich from his web-slinging sequel. We’re still unsure how much of a part the character plays in the plot and if he’ll ever get in the ‘horny’ costume but from the look of these new set stills, Giamatti’s thousand-yard stare is as menacing as we’ve seen from any villain from the Spider-Man franchise as he does a little on-the-spot comic-book research. You can find a lot more images over at fan-girl.org.
As we know, Jamie Foxx will portray the ‘shocking’ primary villain Max Dillon (aka Electro) in the rebooted superhero sequel slated for cinemas 2nd May 2014, with Chris Cooper also expected the set up his appearance as Norman Osborne in the concluding adventure. The Amazing Spiderman 2 co-stars Andrew Garfield, »

Spider-Man fans, meet The Rhino. He looks angry. On Saturday, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb offered a look at Paul Giamatti as the villain in the comic book sequel. Giamatti appears to be driving a vehicle of some kind, no doubt for nefarious purposes.
"Say hello to Aleksei Sytsevich," wrote Webb on Twitter, in reference to The Rhino's non-super-villain comic book name. As THR noted when Paul Giamatti was in talks in January to join the cast of the Sony sequel, the
