Even though we not-so-secretly wish Spider-Man would become part of Marvel/Disney again so we could see him as a member of The Avengers, we’re not unhappy he still gets solo movies either. Next up for the web crawler is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the sequel to the reboot from two years ago.
Sony has released the first trailer for, the film and we’ve got it for you, just like everyone else. Still, that doesn’t make it any less cool.
The sequel brings back Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. This time around, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man goes up against a cadre of villains including Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, Chris Cooper’s Green Goblin and Paul Giamatti’s Rhino. Dane DeHaan, Sally Field and Denis Leary also star in the Marc Webb-directed movie.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuts in the U.S. on May 2, 2014. Trailer is after the break.
Comic-Con is in full swing in San Diego so expect all manner of news, photos, video and more coming from the show. We’re taking a more low-key approach this year but we’re still going to have a few bits and pieces that interest us and, of course, you.
Speaking of interest, how about a video teasing the new villain for the upcoming Spider-Man sequel? That villain?
Why, it’s none other than Electro, of course. And yes, that’s actor Jamie Foxx behind all the make-up and high-voltage. Shocking? Yes, yes it is.
Let’s face it, sometimes it’s fun to check your brain at the door and watch people blow stuff up on the big screen. Well, it you do like that, we’ve got a movie for you.
It’s called White House Down and it features Channing Tatum protecting Jamie Foxx as the President of the United States after terrorist attack the White House and, well, blow a lot of stuff up. There’s a new trailer out for the movie today and we’ve got it for you.
At almost four minutes, the trailer is chock full of explosions, shootouts and all the buddy cop-ish male bonding you would expect from a movie like this. And did we mention stuff explodes? Well, it does. A lot.
White House Down hits theaters on June 28. Check out the trailer after the break.
In truth, I kinda like the fact that we live in a world that can have two separate movies in the same year where the White House gets taken over by bad guys. It worked when we had competing asteroid/comet movies, so why not with this?
Obviously, Hollywood agrees with me as in addition to Olympus Has Fallen, which came out a couple months ago, we’ve now got White House Down. This one stars Channing Tatum as a Capitol cop at the White House with his daughter who gets caught up in an paramilitary invasion.
Roland Emmerich directs James Vanderbilt’s script and the movie also stars Jamie Foxx, Jason Clarke and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Look for it in theaters on June 28.
Meantime, check out the trailer for White House Down after the break.
About 15 minutes in I decided I wanted some popcorn, and upon looking at my phone, it appeared that an hour and a half had passed. From what I understand, that hasn’t been the standard reaction across the Internet, but for me at least, Django was incredibly easy to watch, and not for a moment did I want it to end.
The structure is right in tune with many Spaghetti Westerns (itself being one more in a long series of unofficial sequels to Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 film Django): the compacted serial with each episode lasting a half hour or so. There’s an overarching plot, but just as much does it like to get sidetracked in subplots.
The main story centers around Django (Jamie Foxx), a runaway slave many times over who only wants to be reunited with his wife. He has the good fortune of meeting up with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a German dentist turned bounty hunter, hot on the trail of the notorious Brittle Brothers. Django, a former acquaintance of the Brittles, is the only man alive who knows what they look like, and Schultz, gleefully operating within the laws and well versed in all the loopholes, buys Django to help him hunt down the bounty.
Here’s a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. This time around the trailer takes us to the lighter side of this tale of revenge and features an appearance by Jonah Hill, among the previously shown cast of characters.
Look for this one to drop on Christmas day. Meantime, here’s the new trailer.
Like any good Tarantino script, a very large number of quality actors wanted to be apart of it. This leads to lots of people expressing public interest in taking roles only to have to bow out when schedules do not align. As was the case early on in production when Jonah Hill reportedly was cast in the film.
The Weinstein Company has set Jonah Hill to play a role in Django Unchained, which is in production. I’m trying to find out who he’ll be playing, but am told it won’t be Scotty Harmony, the kid who loses Django’s slave wife Broomhilda to Calvin Candie… Hill was eyed for the role early on, but had to turn it down because his schedule was so busy. He’s back in another role.
Good for Hill and good for the movie to add another seasoned actor in what might be a bot part. Often times you hear people knock a film for ‘wasting’ a skilled actor in a smaller role. I actually take the opposing stance, the better the actor you can get for any role only enhances the movie.
Thankfully international audiences tend to need to be sold films differently than their North American counterparts, which allows for the release of this more strait-forward trailer that gives us a more traditional sense of the plot of the movie. For those new to the Unchained train, here is the official synopsis:
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, “Django Unchained” stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.
Django Unchained comes out on Christmas Day, so it is basically the Tarantino’s Christmas present to cinema fans everywhere. Check out the new international trailer after the jump.
After some casting news, a poster and some official photos, the first teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained has arrived. I won’t go into too much detail about the teaser, but let’s just say it looks to be another very interesting movie from Tarantino and perhaps a fitting successor to his last effortInglourious Basterds.
As a fan of the director and his work, I’m probably a bit biased here. Still, that doesn’t mean this movie won’t be great. I think it probably will.
Or, at the very least, it won’t be boring — which is more than I can say for a lot of movies these days. Check out the teaser after the break. Look for Django Unchained to hit theaters on Christmas day.
