10 Reasons Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man Owns Tobey Maguire’s

22 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

The Amazing Spider-Man series may have its critics, but there’s one thing few can argue against and that’s the casting of Andrew Garfield as our hero Peter Parker. A fairly unknown actor at the time whose only real role of note was in David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’, it was considered a huge risk by Sony to cast him for the lead in a film where in the age of Blockbusters critical acclaim means little to studios without the box office success to back it up.

“Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity, Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.”

Two films later, and we couldn’t agree with Marc Webb’s words more. Garfield burst onto the scene with a fresh, »

10 Villains That Will Appear In New The Amazing Spider-Man Movies

17 October 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Amazing Spider-Man universe has no shortage of bad guys. Already movie goers have been treated to the Lizard in the first film, followed by Electro, Green Goblin and Rhino in the second. Unfortunately, neither movie has really captured the imaginations or hearts of its following and although the villains have looked good (Lizard aside), they’ve hardly been inspiring.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also suffered from feeling like an overblown trailer for upcoming movies, especially the Sinister Six. Rather than Spider-Man being front and centre as he should be, it felt like the villains were top billing instead.

The second film boasted three big bad guys from the Spider-Man universe, with Electro and Green Goblin taking major villain status and Rhino being shoehorned in at the beginning and end. Clearly Mark Webb had not learnt the mistakes of Spider-Man 3, in which too many villains certainly spoiled the broth. »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hits $700 million worldwide

16 October 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to its strong performance in China, Marvel’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now passed the $700 million mark at the global box-office, with the Phase Two film currently just shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s haul of $707.9 million with $705.1 million to date. It looks certain now that Guardians will overtake Spider-Man and fellow McU release Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($713.9 million), while X-Men: Days of Future Past’s $747.9 million is still a possibility. Either way it’s a superb result for Marvel and its “risky” little-known property…

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, Benicio Del Toro (Sin City) as The Collector, Lee Pace (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug »

Emma Stone on Trying Not to Ruin Birdman

16 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Emma Stone seems to have an affinity for movies about men who dress up in animal suits and fly around New York City. Things are going to get pretty meta, so hang on. In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman (in theaters Friday), The Amazing Spider-Man star plays the petulant daughter (and terrible personal assistant to) Michael Keaton’s Riggan, a washed-up movie star who made his fame and fortune in a superhero franchise and is now trying to revive his career by launching a play adaptation of a Raymond Carver novel on Broadway. And now, in real life, while releasing a movie about trying to make it on Broadway, Stone is actually about to be on Broadway, singing every day in preparation to take over for Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles opposite Alan Cumming’s Emcee in the revival of Cabaret. Got it? Good! Vulture talked to her for a »

Emma Stone Lies About Frozen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

15 October 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Emma Stone has been on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon a couple times, but she’s only ever competed in a lip sync battle with the late night talk show host. Last night, however, while promoting her new film Birdman (which, side note, I am dying to see), Stone, who is most famous for her roles in movies like The Help and The Amazing Spider-Man, found herself playing a game she had never tried before: Box of Lies. As you can see for yourself in the video below, Emma Stone promises, before she and Jimmy Fallon even begin the game, that she’s much more comfortable with lip sync battling against Jimmy than trying to lie to him. “I love to lip sync,” she says, “but I am a terrible liar.” While you may think that Stone is just kidding around about how poor of a liar she is, »

Sony Wants Billy Murray To Appear In All-Female Ghostbusters Reboot

14 October 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Apparently Sony is very interested in bringing Bill Murray ("Scrooged") back for Paul Feig's female-led Ghostbusters reboot. Ramin Setoodeh from Variety reports: "According to insiders, the studio would jump at the chance to sign (Bill) Murray for either a cameo or supporting role." If Murray does accept a role in the film it would be a bit of surprise as he was such a wrench in past plans for a Ghostbusters 3, he passed on numerous scripts. Though, he was the first former cast member to publicly praise an all-female approach. He even provided his own fan-cast which included: "Melissa McCarthy ("The Heat"), Kristen Wiig ("Bridesmaids"), Linda Cardellini ("Scooby-Doo") and Emma Stone ("The Amazing Spider-Man"). Below, you can watch a recent MTV interview in which Emma was asked about Bill's recommendation. By the way, this Bill Murray news shouldn't come as much of surprise since Paul Feig told Entertainment »

What does Civil War mean for the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

14 October 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Captain America 3 is set to kick off the Marvel Civil War on the big screen. But what is it, and what does it mean for the McU?

Spoiler warning:

One section of this article discusses heavy spoilers for the Civil War comic. We've marked that section, but we discuss storylines throughout the piece.

Also, this piece contains spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, along with speculation about future Marvel films.

It was one year back that we took a look a look at why Marvel's 2007 comic book arc, Civil War, was ripe for the big screen treatment. You can find the original piece here. Now, with the news breaking yesterday that Tony Stark would be suiting up alongside/against Steve Rogers in Captain America 3, it seems Kevin Feige has, er, had the same idea over at Marvel Studios HQ. Clearly that was down »

Sam Raimi in talks for 'Silver Linings Playbook' novelist's 'Love May Fail'

14 October 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's the mischievous horrormeister Sam Raimi, the blockbuster wizard Sam Raimi, and the pensive character-observing Sam Raimi. The latter doesn't get enough work — welcome to Hollywood, folks! — but sturdy relationships from the "Spider-Man" director's past may put a high-profile, awards-friendly project at the front of his "to do" queue. Fans of the "A Simple Plan" and "The Gift," rejoice. Deadline reports that Raimi is in talks to take the reins on "Love May Fail," the next novel from "Silver Linings Playbook" author Matthew Quick. The book was the subject of a major studio bidding war last September. Sony Pictures came out on top, putting the project in the hands of Matt Tolmach, who worked with Raimi on the first "Spider-Man" trilogy when he headed production at Sony (he now produces "The Amazing Spider-Man" circus). Tolmach will produce the film, based on a script by Mike White [obligatory reminder to watch "Enlightened"]. If the deal crystalizes, »

8 Possible Futures For The Spider-Man Movie Franchise

14 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

It’s fair to say Spider-Man is not what he was. Once the biggest superhero of all, the iffy reboot The Amazing Spider-Man, as well as the meteoric rise of Marvel with heroes audiences haven’t seen before, have rendered Peter Parker and his friendly neighbourhood alter-ego increasingly obsolete. Which is bad news for the studio whose entire business model centres on him.

There’s been rumours over the past week that Sony are planning something drastic to try and rejuvenate franchise. But, in keeping with their inability to settle on one single idea, there’s lots of concepts as to what this could entail floating around. Today we intend to work through what possibilities there are for the future of the series and look at the legal logistics of it all.

Oh yeah, as you’ve probably noticed, Spider-Man on screen is dominated by a myriad of contractual obligations. »

5 Ways Sony Can Move Forward With The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise

13 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I feel legitimately bad for Spider-Man fans, because in an age where comic book films and television shows are all the rage, the popular wall-crawler has had a rough go of it at the multiplex. Sure, we got two great films with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 that in turn helped kick off the current superhero craze, but since then there’s been a steady decline in quality and overall interest in the red and blue web slinger.

Sure, each film has its fans and certainly has its merits. In fact, I’m actually a fan of The Amazing Spider-Man and didn’t feel that this year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 deserved the hate that was thrown at it. However, the new series of films have caused more contention with fans and more problems for Sony than we could have imagined. Despite earning over $700 million at the box office, »

Why there's no point worrying about the Ghostbusters reboot

13 October 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's going to be a new Ghostbusters film, and Bill Murray isn't going to be in it. Time to panic? Andrew says no.

So, Ghostbusters, a much-beloved franchise of TV and film, is to be rebooted. The director, Paul Feig (Freaks And Geeks, Bridesmaids, The Heat) has announced his intention to cast women in the main roles. It's hard to say which one people are more annoyed over, but it's worth making the distinction between the aspects of this film that people are complaining about.

The following are legitimate complaints:

• That Ghostbusters is to be rebooted

• That you don't like Paul Feig films and do like Ghostbusters

The latter is one of those things, really, that happens in entertainment. It's pretty hard to argue against a studio's logic in hiring Paul Feig, based on his critical and commercial record ($288 million box office for Bridesmaids, $230 million for The Heat, good to »

Box Office: Guardians Of The Galaxy Opens In China; Tops Man Of Steel's Ww Total

12 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Guardians Of The Galaxy debuted in China with $26.6M--and now $687M worldwide, surpassing Man Of Steel. — Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) October 12, 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy has only just debuted in China, so it should be very interesting to see how much its run there adds to its eventual box office haul and where it will ultimately place when compared to this year's other three big Marvel movies; Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714 million), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($708 million), and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($746 million). The fact that it has now beaten Man of Steel takes nothing away from Zack Snyder's impressive Superman reboot (especially as it faced moviegoers sceptical of the iconic DC Comics superhero after the tepid response to Superman Returns), but you have to imagine that Kevin Feige and company are patting themselves on the back for making such a huge success out of a group »

Nycc: Lego to release Jurassic World sets next year

10 October 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the New York Comic Con, it has been announced that Universal and The Lego Group are partnering up to release a selection of lego sets based upon next year’s hotly-anticipated fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise Jurassic World.

Jurassic Park defined dinosaurs for an entire generation 20 years ago, and Jurassic World will do the same in 2015,” said Universal exec Stephanie Sperber. “Working with Lego Group to bring this classic into the present in dynamic and exciting ways is truly thrilling.”

“We are thrilled to be a part of the groundbreaking Jurassic Park series,” adds Lego’s Jill Wilfert. “The film’s imagery and branding are iconic, with a rich array of landscapes, vehicles and dinosaurs that are perfect for inspiring a line of building sets that will encourage hours of creative play.”

10 Things The Amazing Spider-Man Does Better Than The Original Trilogy

9 October 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

Marvel are absolutely dominating the box office with their Cinematic Universe and 20th Century Fox have successfully brought the X-Men back from the murk of The Last Stand. And then there’s Sony. While other studios have been relishing in critical praise and box office success, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was the worst received entry in the once immortal franchise, making a genre staple seem tired and obsolete.

The whole reboot has been condemned from the off, going back to the start purely out of a desperation to retain the rights to the character (Sony must produce a new Spider-Man movie every five years, otherwise the property would revert back to Marvel). And while the fact that the company doesn’t have a clue what to do with the character is painfully obvious, with each film seems more concerned with setting up the next than delivering something of worth in its own right, »
