Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for director Will Gluck‘s (Easy A) new musical adaptation Annie.  The redo stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  The film is very clearly a modern day update of the story, as it bears little resemblance to the 1982 film adaptation of the same musical.  Wallis appears to be sufficiently charming in the lead role, and Diaz puts an interesting spin on the mean Miss Hannigan sans drinking habit.  Some of the music is rather heavy on the auto-tune, but all-in-all this looks to be a fairly entertaining musical aimed squarely at families looking for an agreeable holiday movie outing.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Produced by Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Jay-Z, the film also stars Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and David ZayasAnnie opens in theaters on December 19th.

The first trailer for the remake of the musical Annie will be headed our way very soon, and a sneak peek has just landed online.  For those unfamiliar with the classic musical, it centers on the eponymous orphan who is adopted by the wealthy Daddy Warbucks.  Quvenzhane Wallis is set to lead the film, and Jamie Foxx will play the Daddy Warbucks character, now called “Benjamin Stacks” and a NYC mayoral candidate in this updated version.  From this brief footage, I like what they’ve done with Annie’s look by translating the original character’s curly red hair to a wild and frizzy style.  I’m looking forward to seeing more of the movie even at the risk of having the songs “Tomorrow” and “Hard Knock Life” stuck in my head for the rest of the week.

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  In the upcoming sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.  This new trailer is a mash-up of the trailers we’ve seen over the past few months with a few bits of new action thrown in.  With a little under three months left to go until the film’s release date, I’m a little worried about how much more they can show us since we’ve already gotten a pretty heavy dose of the plot.  Perhaps it’s best to keep the reveals where they are, and let us be surprised when we see the film in May.

Sony has released a pair of new international posters for director Marc Webb’s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and they definitely play up Spidey’s main foe.  In the follow-up, Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Jamie Foxx’s Electro emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at OsCorp.  These new posters go heavy on the Electro, as Spidey and Foxx’s villain are both flanked by plenty of electrical bolts.

New Images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2; Roberto Orci Talks THE SINISTER SIX, VENOM, and More

Sony Pictures has released more images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and we’re starting to get to the “flipbook stage” where, by the time the film is released in May, there will probably be so many images, clips, and trailers that you’ll be able to put together the movie without seeing it.  We’re only in January, and I would say that one of these images already takes things too far, but this strategy is nothing new for blockbusters.  It’s total secrecy during filming and then spilling almost everything afterwards.  I personally find it irritating, but I suppose it’s nice for the people who are super-excited for Spidey’s next adventure.

Hit the jump to check out the images, and if you want to jump even further ahead in the Spider-Man saga, there are also some new comments from writer Roberto Orci on how they’re handling The Sinister Six, Venom, and more.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, and Sally Field, and opens in 3D on May 2nd.

Three new international posters for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been released.  While other posters put the emphasis on the number of villains that Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) will be facing, these posters cut out Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and put the emphasis squarely on Electro (Jamie Foxx), although you can still see Goblin on the Times Square TV screens.

Thousands of people gathered in Times Square last night to ring in 2014, and Sony Pictures has taken advantage of the holiday to introduce a new Times Square-centered trailer for director Marc Webb‘s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Introduced by Stan Lee himself, the new promo teases a rather “electrifying” action sequence from the film that takes place in the New York City epicenter and involves Jamie Foxx’s villainous character.  We saw a bit more of this sequence at Comic-Con last summer and it involves Electro taking great advantage of the plethora of electricity available in Times Square.

Two New Images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Featuring Jamie Foxx as Electro

Even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 now has at least three villains, I’m still assuming Electro (Jamie Foxx) is the lead threat ahead of Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti).  Electro’s been featured the most heavily in the marketing, although that could be because Foxx is highly recognizable to mainstream audiences.  Two new images keep the focus on the superpowered baddie, who starts out as the feeble Max Dillon.  As we all know, Peter Parker is the only meek person who can get superpowers and not go power-mad.

International Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Plays Up the Comedy with New Footage

Sony announced some big plans for its Spider-Man universe by way of Venom and Sinister Six films late last night, but first on the docket is director Marc Webb’s sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  A new international trailer has gone online, and it plays up the more comedic aspects of the film instead of focusing on the multitude of villains like the first domestic trailer.  The strongest aspect of Webb’s 2012 reboot was the smaller character moments, and I hope that’s explored further in this follow-up.

In case you haven’t gotten enough of your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man today with the new trailerour screengrabs, and the possibility of the post-credits scene being spoiled in the trailer, Sony has released more images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the official website.  The website also features background music that’s probably some of Hans Zimmer‘s score for the film.  Finally, we’ve been wondering who Colm Feore would be playing in the movie, and had speculated that it would be Spider-Slayer inventor Spencer Smythe.  However, the website says he’s playing “Donald Menken”, who was the personal assistant to Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) in the comics.  There’s still no official word on who Felicity Jones and B.J. Novak are playing.

The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 just went online, and it’s pretty damn good.  It’s filled with some thrilling shots and some neat stuff for the fans.  For me, the biggest takeaway from the trailer is the image above—Vulture’s wings and Doctor Octopus’ tentacles.  It’s a short shot, but one that’s meant to be noticed (unlike another half-second shot in the trailer that provides new details on what happened to Peter’s parents).  We’ve also pulled some nice close-ups on villains Electro (Jamie Foxx), Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan).

First Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 [Updated with Commentary from Marc Webb and Cast]

by     Posted 235 days ago

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for director Marc Webb’s sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The clip emphasizes the burden on Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), as he explains in voiceover: “The more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make.  And it’s just a matter of time before I face those with more power than I can overcome.”  (See: Sinister Six.)  There’s just a bit of footage of Jamie Foxx as the new villain Electro, but the trailer closes with a cool chase/battle that promises a nice match between our agile hero and the seemingly teleportable villain.

Hi-Res Version of the Triptych Banner for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

A few days ago, we posted a lo-res version of the banner for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Sony has now released an official version, and there’s really nothing to hide.  Green Goblin is on there, and if you look behind Electro’s shoulder, you can see who’s playing him.  The Rhino armor is much clearer (I assume some people will be upset that it’s not Paul Giamatti in a Rhino costume, which would look silly, but also be pretty hilarious) and you can make out little details like the OsCorp and Daily Bugle logos.

First Look at THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Poster Possibly Shows Green Goblin and Rhino

by     Posted 241 days ago

amazing-spider-man-2-poster-photo-slice

The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will arrive online next week, but the first poster has been spotted in the wild.  We know for a fact that Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) will be fighting Electro (Jamie Foxx), but the rest of the plot has been speculation based on other characters in the movie.  For those who don’t know, Paul Giamatti is playing the baddie, Rhino, Chris Cooper is playing Norman Osborn (who becomes Green Goblin in the comics) and Dane DeHaan is playing Harry Osborn (who becomes Green Goblin after his father dies).  This new poster apparently shows not only Electro, but also Green Goblin on his glider and a giant, robot/vehicle that has a horn like a rhino.  If the first poster is going to show off these characters, I wonder how much they’ll feature in the first trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  Hopefully, some higher-quality images will go online soon.  The film also stars Emma Stone, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore, and Sally FieldThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
