JoBlo got their hands on a ton of B-roll footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It might be a little bit spoiler, because it’s behind the scenes footage of the cast and crew filming a lot of things. There’s little or no context, but you can probably piece some things together.
I really love watching B-roll because it shows the lie of moviemaking, especially on a big budget action film like this one. It gives away all their tricks, but some how it doesn’t kill the magic. Even though I know how the process works, I still watch movies and think, "How did they do that?!" Here’s how they do it: They shoot him, then her, then them together, then they shoot the big thing, then they add some stuff in post and edit it all together, and it’s a movie. I love it.
So check out this footage, »

Recent news of an X-Men: Days of Future Past post-credits tease at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had the internet all in a tizzy over the potential for a Marvel movie crossover in the future. Although we updated our story to explain that this move was more to calm tensions between studios than it was to excite the fandom, there might yet exist some misunderstanding out there in the world. Enter Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Both have offered up their comments on a potential crossover between the friendly neighborhood web-slinger and other Marvel franchises; it doesn't seem likely with Arad convinced there are plenty of spider-stories to tell, and Tolmach likening the appearance of Spider-Man in, say, The Avengers, as a "stunt." Hit the jump for more. In an interview with IGN, Arad and Tolmach fielded questions about the rumored crossover between The Amazing Spider-Man »

Sneak Peek the new Hot Toys articulated figure of 'Spidey' from director Marc Webb's Columbia Pictures' sequel, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2":
"...for 'Peter Parker' (Garfield), life is busy. Between taking out the bad guys as 'Spider-Man' and spending time with 'Gwen', the girl he loves, 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' (Foxx) emerges, old friend 'Harry Osborn' returns and Peter uncovers new clues about his past..."

Jamie Foxx is a talented man. Comedian, musician and actor, he’s tried his hand at many pursuits and gone down a storm in each. After all, it’s a rare man who can actually turn out a decent album while conquering Hollywood (no, that doesn’t include Bruce Willis), and even rarer a man who’s snaffled up an Academy Award and a Us Billboard charts number one to match his Grammy. In fact, there’s only four people who’ve done it, a number so small you couldn’t even make a quiz team out of it.
So basically, he deserves all the praise you can throw at him, and then some. But just because the man born Eric Marlon Bishop – you really didn’t think Foxx was his birth-name, did you? – is obviously successful, it doesn’t mean everything he touches turns to gold. No, »

The early release overseas is no huge surprise. The April/May window has proven a boom time to open Hollywood blockbusters earlier overseas. It's going on right now with "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" opening this week in several global markets to take advantage of both the Easter Holiday and school holidays currently happening in various countries. There's also extra pressure this year to go early before the World Cup shrinks the global filmgoing audience for a few weeks.
There's no word on Marvel's plans for the UK for "Captain America 3" and whether it will go a week or two earlier as well, but Marvel's "Iron Man" was the film that really began this trend and the studio has »

Omg, an “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” mid-credits sting in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Crosssssooooverrrrrrrr! Nope, as you’ve probably read by now. The only reason that this unlikely event – a 20th Century Fox movie being promoted within a Sony/Columbia tentpole – happened was because it was essentially in director Marc Webber’s contact. The filmmaker owed another movie to Fox Searchlight (sibling company of parent Fox) after “(500) Days of Summer,” and so in order for him to make “The Amazing Spider-Man” and the sequel, Sony had to agree to promote one of Fox’s upcoming movies (they chose “X-Men Days of Future Past” in the aforementioned example). This didn’t stop tons of fans – who have already been wishing and praying for a ‘Spider-Man’/”Avengers” crossover ever since Marvel producers almost threw in a crossover easter egg tease – from screaming, “Omg, does this mean crossover?” The short answer is no. »

Movies make us happy! We love to escape reality for a few hours, and enjoy the adventures and tales of magical creatures and animated heroes, but what happens once the credits start to role? We know it is not the last chapter for our favorite characters, we want to know more. We have the right to know what happens next. Some of our favorite flicks will be releasing sequels this year like, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and some classics are getting sequels like Mrs. Doubtfire. So, we identify the top five movies we believe deserve to continue to tell their story:
1. Frozen - We have heard rumors that there were plans to make a sequel to our new favorite Disney hit, but earlier this week the director denied any talks of a second installment. We still have our fingers crossed that we will get to be reunited with Elsa and Anna soon. »

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" opens this weekend in some key overseas territories, including the U.K., and Sony is reportedly hoping to hit the magic $1 billion mark with their sequel. That means, until the movie lands stateside, we're going to be seeing a lot more promo material from the film. So bring it on! First up, Film4 has an extensive ten-minute talk with director Marc Webb and castmembers Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan, as they each discuss the approach and what brought them to the franchise. If that's not enough, how about a featurette focused simply on the score, with Webb and Hans Zimmer talking about the sonic aspects to the film, with the filmmaker choosing the composer because he wanted the movie to sound "contemporary." Anyway, it's a lot to dive into so check it out below. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into cinemas on May 2nd. »

This year is an incredibly busy one for Marvel and as a result it’s a great time to be either a geek or film fan, as 2014 will see the release of four different Marvel productions on the big screen (not to mention a whole host of television projects). We have already caught up with Steve Rogers in the excellent Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next month we will be travelling back to the seventies to prevent a cataclysmic future in X-men: Days Of Future Past.
This week UK theatres has seen the highly anticipated return of our favourite web-slinger in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-man 2 and to celebrate the release, Thn will count down the top five cameos made by the man who started it all…I am of course referring to the creative genius and superhero godfather that is Stan Lee.

Suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s. I’m “biast” (pro): like the cast
I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t a huge fan of the first one; the trailer looked generic
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Two years on from the first pointless reboot of the Spider-Man story — a mere five years after the previous version had wrapped up — the pointless sequel has arrived. Except now we’ve had two more years of cogent, witty Avengers flicks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffers badly by comparison. This looks like a throwback to a time when comic book movies were kiddie stuff and nothing else. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s, and not the smart, relevant science-fiction action drama the genre has matured into on the big screen. »

When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 became a legitimate movie-going experience this week in the UK, fans who stuck around for the end credits found themselves staring at something they never quite expected. During the final credits scene, then, movie-goers were treated to a (spoiler warning, people) clip from the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, which featured Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique breaking into a military base in the 1970s. This, of course, got everyone thinking things like: “Omg! Is Spider-Man gonna team up with the X-Men or something?”
Well, no, unfortunately not. Despite the fact that the producers opted to include a little teaser for Days for Future Past at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, no such superhero team-up is going to happen. Firstly, these movies aren’t even set in the same world, let alone the same year (Spider-Man is set in the present, »
New Delhi, April 18: Indian singer Sanam Puri, who has given hits like "Ishq bulava" and "Dhat teri ki", appreciates Pakistani music for its quality and says his band is trying to achieve the same quality.
"The music they (Pakistani musicians) are making right now is lot more open and straight forward and easy to connect. The production is lot better than India right now. So, we are trying as a band to bring that quality and more to India," Puri, who has sung the promotional song of Hollywood film "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", told Ians.
India has welcomed music from across the border with open arms and Pakistani artists. »

Pick up The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, iOS, Android, Nintendo 3Ds, and Microsoft Windows on April 29, 2014. We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes »
