Hot on the heels of a new poster for this summer's explosive action thriller White House Down, which features Channing Tatum in white tanktop like a certain action hero played by Bruce Willis, a cool new featurette goes behind the scenes with director Roland Emmerich. This time around, the filmmaker says it's the first time he doesn't just completely destroy Washington D.C. in one fell swoop, but rather tears it down bit by bit. So I guess that's a little bit better. There's some interview bits with the cast, including one of our favorites, Jason Clarke, and tons of the crew members. Plus, there's some new footage too. Watch! Here's the featurette for Roland Emmerich's White House Down from Yahoo: White House Down is directed by action mastermind Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, Anonymous) from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, »

The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
In ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. »

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 ...

Well, the poster is slightly new. It was actually released earlier this month, but it's been ever so slightly tweaked so that Channing Tatum isn't covering Jamie Foxx so much. In a way, that's actually not a bad move since the second trailer for Roland Emmerich's summer action bonanza, White House Down, plays out more like a buddy cop action comedy as opposed to Tatum doing all the heavy lifting to protect Foxx as the President of the United States of America. Honestly, this could almost be a poster for a relocated remake of Die Hard with a Vengeance, because Tatum is clearly doing his best John McClane. Look below! Here's the retooled poster for Roland Emmerich's White House Down straight from Columbia Pictures: White House Down is directed by action mastermind Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, Anonymous) from a screenplay »

In 2011, The Amazing Spider-Man went to Comic-Con, and showed off the first footage of The Lizard (the reaction on Twitter from my peers seemed to be "That looks like Killer Croc, and I hope they do more work on the CGI"). The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to kick off the 2014 summer movie season, and so it looks like Sony is bringing the movie for a panel at this summer's San Diego Comic-Con, which runs from July 18 - 21st. Jamie Foxx, who plays the villain Electro, tells Yahoo! Movies, "Now I'm just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it." People will probably be enthusiastic. They love Spider-Man, and while The Amazing Spider-Man is a misfire, it didn't kill off interest in the reboot. There's still a great cast, and hopefully the script is stronger this time around. The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, »

"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.
Jamie Foxx's casting in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel has been quite devisive amongst fans. For better or worse, the actor will be bringing a fan favorite villain, Electro, to the big screen for the first time and Foxx is having a good time doing it. "Oh, man ― it's so much fun," the actor 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." The actor also confirmed that footage from the upcoming sequel will be shown off at this year's San Diego Comic-Con International!

The Flickering Myth writing team sit down to talk about the fourth trailer for Man of Steel....
After releasing what felt like a million posters (albeit awesome ones), Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures gave us a fourth trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel this week - this time featuring more of Michael Shannon's General Zod.
So, what did the Flickering Myth writing staff think?
Martin Deer: This trailer compliments the epic third one so well: we've had the hope that is Superman, now we have the very real threat that is Zod. The stage is perfectly set. You can really see the 'First Contact' scenario at play, with Zod's message - which is brilliant, that would be a terrifying moment in real life and I imagine the story will capture that.
To address complaints I've seen: Superman can be pissed off. In fact, it is »
There's nothing like a good charity event to put you in a giving mood. In this case, it prompted Andrew Garfield to give girlfriend Emma Stone a big kiss on the lips yesterday at the 2013 Peace, Love & A Cure Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation Benefit. The Amazing Spider-Man costars attended with Stone's mother, Krista, who is a breast cancer survivor. Whether it was the emotional nature of the event or just the simple urge to engage in a public display of affection (Stone does look great, as always), Garfield bent down and planted one on her while she was still seated. Can they be any cuter?! (And does the angle remind anyone else of the famous upside-down »

Whatever good deeds they happen to gift upon the world, the superheroes we see on our screens also seem to have taken up positions as “purveyors of ill-judged decisions,” many of which could have been totally avoided, had they stopped for a moment to consider what it was that was happening. No one can be perfect all the time, of course, and everybody is human (although there is a Norse God and a demon on this list, to be fair), and the superpowers present are a mixture of natural and man-made. That aside… accidents happen, right?
The general conclusion we can draw from this, though, is that sometimes these guys get a bit too excitable and either get caught up in their plans, or in the moment entirely, causing them to forget that they need to use their brains now and again; some of these decisions are impulsive and were made during a fight, »

Remember when Tim Blake Nelson‘s noggin started looking all funky in The Incredible Hulk? Well, if you don’t, it happened around the point where the Hulk and the Abomination starting ripping each other apart. While those two worked out their problems, Dr. Samuel Sterns was having a makeover. Before the finale, we saw Sterns crack a smile while making his transformation into The Leader, the brilliant green-skinned Marvel baddie. He’s a villain favorite for some, possibly even the makers of The Amazing Spider-Man, who used one of his more famous schemes for The Lizard’s grand plan. The Leader is a very comic book-y type of villain, one that could have been too much for Marvel’s Phase I, but now that the studio has pushed the boundaries of its scientific status, bringing back actor Tim Blake Nelson to terrorize The Hulk or The Avengers is a solid idea.

Star Trek Into Darkness had a bigger opening weekend than The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America and Twilight. But there's one film Into Darkness couldn't beat that stands out: its 2009 predecessor, which took in $75 million over its first Friday-Sunday frame versus the new film's $70 million. Hollywood sequels are supposed to be bigger, in scope, in budget and, most of all, at the box office. Here are three ways to explain what happened to Into Darkness: 1. It Lost Some of Its Payload on Lauch: Or, to put it another way, because the J.J. Abrams-directed adventure opened Thursday (with Wednesday night previews), instead of Friday, ticket sales were spread out over four days instead of »
It was raining cats 'n' dogs in NYC this past weekend, and even Andrew Garfield's pooch was unhappy about the gloomy occasion. But his best friend did what he could under the soaking circumstances. While shooting scenes for The Amazing Spider-Man, the leading man changed out of his Spidey suit and took his dog for a quick stroll around the block. Andrew was well equipped for the weather in a giant black raincoat, gray sweatpants and chunky brown boots. His pup, on the other hand, made for an adorable wet dog.

With the wet ground making stunt work too dangerous the three red and blue suited men decided to get extra practice in as they ran around a large parked truck. All three of them had loose fitting jogging bottoms on as they tried to keep warm in the damp weather while Paul Giamatti sat nice and dry inside the truck. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014 »

Day 73. The Future. twitter.com/MarcW/status/3…— Marc Webb (@MarcW) May 19, 2013 What is it? Well, it appears to be a cell of some sort, although it looks to me like it's probably something Oscorp related rather than anything to do with the Ravencroft Institute. Could this be where Norman Osborn undergoes his transformation into the Green Goblin? Your guess is as good as ours at this point! What do you guys think Marc Webb could be hinting at? Sound off below! In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough.

You don't get points for the good movie no one went to see. Pretend for a moment you have an endless amount of money to make any movie you want. What would it be? An action film? Romance? Comedy? Who would direct? Who would star? Pretend I came to you with a film directed by James Toback (Tyson) starring Alec Baldwin and Neve Campbell in something of a politically-inspired erotic Middle Eastern adventure inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris in which there's the promise of exploratory sex. How much would you be willing to pay to help fund that film? Better yet, what would it take to get you to fund that film? While navigating the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Toback and Baldwin took such an idea to a variety of investors, both foreign and domestic to get the proposed film off the ground, while also taking a »
