New on DVD/Blu-ray: It's a Great Week to Like Genre Movies

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Sony - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Marc Webb Cast: Andrew GarfieldEmma StoneJamie FoxxDane DeHaanChris Cooper. Full cast + crew The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is certainly the biggest punching bag of this year's superhero movies. It's silly, it's simple and it's glossy. And while I'd never argue that it's better than Captain America 2 or even X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's an acceptable, occasionally exceptional, overall enjoyable comic book movie that isn't afraid to be absurd. There's a reason younger crowds will embrace this more than adults, because it is indeed that much closer to a Saturday-morning-cartoon vibe, but for the grown-ups out there, there...

Females On Film: Ranking the summer's biggest box office winners based on lady roles

7 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

UK Trailer For ‘Annie’ Remake

8 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Little orphan Annie is set to return to the UK this Christmas season. Quvenzhane Wallis, famed for her role in Beasts Of The Southern Wild, takes on the part of the titular hero who has A Hard Knock Life in an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). One day Annie has a fateful encounter with Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx), a rich man running for mayor. Seeking a publicity opportunity, Stacks takes in Annie only to eventually develop real feelings for her. The heart warming tale first came to screens in 1982 and has built quite the following, especially following Jay-z’s use of the famous track It’s A Hard Knock Life. Other musical classics include Tomorrow, it’s easy to see why Chandler Bing had two copies.

The trailer for Sony’s remake keeps things both traditional while adding contemporary spurts to both the action, dance routines, »

It's Official: Emma Stone Comes to the 'Cabaret'

13 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It was an open secret among theater insiders that Emma Stone was in negotiations to star in Cabaret when preparations were underway to bring back the Roundabout Theatre Company's smash revival to Broadway last season. But those talks fell apart due to scheduling conflicts related to The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Word surfaced earlier this month that discussions had resumed, this time for Stone to replace current lead Michelle Williams when her extended run in the production wraps on Nov. 9. The timing worked out on the second try, with Stone now confirmed to step into the show as Sally Bowles

14 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fans have wanted to see Luke Cage brought to life on the big screen for quite a while; and although we are now getting a Netflix tv series featuring the character, at one point a movie was planned. Before the rights reverted back to Marvel Studios, John Singleton was on board to direct a Luke Cage movie at Colombia Pictures, and it seems Jamie Foxx may have been the man they wanted for the role. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 due for home release this week, IGN have posted an interview with Foxx (Max Dillon/Electro) in which the actor reveals that he could possibly have played Cage "back in the day", He doesn't go into any details however, simply saying that things didn't work out. Do you think Foxx would have made a good Luke Cage? Sound off below. »

17 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Andrew Garfield is no stranger to the spotlight - we're talking about Spider-Man here - but you may be surprised to learn just how many cute quirks and hidden talents the actor possesses.

So in honor of Andrew's 31st birthday, here are the nine reasons why he should be your celebrity crush (that is, if he isn't already). 1. He's a geeky fan boy - in the most adorable way.

Andrew Garfield Spending Time With His Smallest Fans is Aww-Worthy

20 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Andrew Garfield's role as Spider-Man has garnered him tons of popularity with kids and adults alike, but we especially love seeing the actor use his Spidey senses to appeal to the little ones. Most recently, as Andrew embarked on the worldwide press tour for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he hammed it up and shared lots of sweet moments with children, both by himself and with girlfriend Emma Stone. Andrew taught kids with autism how to surf in Australia and planted trees in the park, and he and Emma posed with a group of youngsters in Shanghai. We've rounded up some of the cutest pictures of Andrew spending time with his smallest, most excited fans in honor of his 31st birthday on Wednesday. Keep reading to see them all now.

Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For review

19 August 2014 10:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller being Sin City back to the screen in A Dame To Kill For. Here's Duncan's review...

One of the many pitfalls of being an enthusiastic movie geek is having to wait vast amounts of time for a sequel. Already this year we've had comic book movies such as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier leaving us hanging on for more, as they both ended (as is the Marvel way) with a set up for the next instalment. Waiting can be a strangely exhausting game. And now that Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has finally been unleashed after so many false starts and promised release dates that failed to materialise, it's hard to believe it's actually here, nine years after the first film.

Nearly a decade ago, back in 2005, Sin City was a breath of fresh, white-blood filled air. With its swaggering stylistics, »

This Week In Home Entertainment: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Boardwalk Empire And More

19 August 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-ray The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starts off with a cutesy chase scene and follows with a romantic interest fans can root for. Unfortunately, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also offers an array of villains and movie tropes we.ve seen before, cut together so that even a moment of tragedy for our hero isn.t very affecting. It must be great to play Peter Parker. Even in Spider-Man.s most conflicting moments, Andrew Garfield seems to be having a whole lot of fun. His scenes.especially those shared with character Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).are full of verbal wit and a good-natured sense of love and respect. Like all versions of Spider-Man, this Peter Parker is still torn, torn by the life he lives as an average human and his duties toward New York City. When new villain Electro (Jamie Foxx) brings Oscorp back into the picture, »

The 5 Most Disappointing Films of Summer 2014

19 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras with his five most disappointing films of this summer….

The Summer movie season is coming to a close. We were fortunate enough to be blessed with a lot of quality product this year. There were, however, some real stinkers. Movies that didn’t live up to the promise of a good time at the movies. In fact, these five films go a bit further and managed to disappoint at a fundamental level.

5. The Giver

Considered one of the best pieces of young adult literature has been transformed into a personality free dystopian adaptation that looks like another generic Hunger Games clone. The sad part is the source material is one of the inspirations behind this modern wave of futuristic fiction and yet the movie is feels like a copy/paste cash grab.

 

4. The Expendables 3

Speaking of copy/paste; the third Expendables movie felt like an all too familiar romp. »

Alfred Molina Keen To Play Doc Ock Again

19 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Although the first two films in Sam Raimi’s Spider-man trilogy are still held with extremely high regard, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus is easily one of the highest points of the entire series.

Prior to Heath Ledger’s mesmerizing portrayal of The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, Molina’s Doc Ock was a strong contender for the greatest comic book baddie in cinematic history. However, as time has passed, the Spider-man franchise has slowly started to wither and lose the quality of its predecessors (as The Amazing Spider-man 2 proved). Now, as a method of maintaining interest and originality in the aging film series, Sony are paving the way for a number of spin-offs in the near future. The first of these spin-offs is Drew Goddard’s villain-orientated Sinister Six, which is set for release in November 2016.

Roberto Orci gives Star Trek 3 script update

19 August 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May we reported that writer and producer Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) would take the helm of the USS Enterprise and make his directorial debut with Star Trek 3.  

Orci hasn’t officially signed on to direct the threequel, as he’s waiting to get the okay from Paramount, who need to see the script before they make their decision. On Saturday, we came a bit closer to that final decision as Orci confirmed that the first draft of the script is done, and that Paramount can now look at it and provide feedback.

He actually took to the comments section over at TrekMovie.com, and said the following:

“p & m & I wrote, “fade out” yesterday on first draft. things are moving.”

“P” and “M” are, of course, Orci’s co-writers John D. Payne and Patrick McKay. As long as their first draft is good, »

'Spider-Man 2', 'Only Lovers Left Alive', 'Y Tu Mama Tambien' and More On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

19 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 For as much as everyone on the Internet claims to hate this movie it will be interesting to see how well it does in DVD and Blu-ray sales. Personally, while I didn't love The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I also didn't hate it with all the fiery passion everyone else seems to have, but hey, what can you doc It clearly has contributed to the sinking of the franchise as Sony attempts to refocus and move their attention from the webslinger for a while and over to films spinning off from this latest attempt at creating a franchise.

Only Lovers Left Alive One of the best films of 2014 and one I was recently asked if it was worth a blind buy. That's a tough one, but I think it's safe to say that if Only Lovers Left Alive, a "laughing quietly to myself" film about modern day »
