New International Trailer for ANNIE Starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Cameron Diaz, and Jamie Foxx

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for director Will Gluck’s new musical adaptation Annie.  The film 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.  This international trailer has a few bits of new footage that show Foxx playing things a bit more comedic and loose than some of his past few roles, with one scene in particular evoking his In Living Color days.  I’m still not crazy about the overly auto-tuned nature of the songs, but Gluck’s last two films (Easy A and Friends with Benefits) have been pleasantly surprising, so I’m interested to see how the full feature plays out.

Sony Pictures has released another clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The follow-up finds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) 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 clip features some admirable creativity when it comes to the variety of ways Spidey must weave his web in order to save New York City’s hapless citizens from Electro.  However, you have to accept the notion that his webbing can move faster than electricity.

Extended TV Spot for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Contains Even More New Footage

In case you haven’t seen enough of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, Sony has released an extended TV spot containing even more new footage.  I’m curious as to why they keep doing this.  Are they worried people won’t come out to see a Spider-Man movie?  It’s Spider-Man.  People will see it.  It will sell lots of toys and other merchandise.  It’s also the first movie of the summer blockbuster season (no disrespect to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but summer blockbuster season begins on the first weekend of May; it’s science).  Does giving so much of the movie away really benefit anyone?  I guess if you can’t get enough of the movie before you see the movie, then you’re over the moon about the company’s marketing campaign.

Final Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Sony Pictures has released a final theatrical trailer for director Marc Webb‘s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The follow-up finds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) 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 trailer would probably be a bit more exciting if Sony hadn’t previously released an overwhelming amount of trailers, clips, and images (keep in mind that the movie is still six weeks away), but there’s still plenty of action and a heavier emphasis on Harry Osborne/Green Goblin even though Electro is the main villain.  The movie looks good; I just wish the studio hadn’t already shown us so much of it.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The film also stars Emma StonePaul GiamattiSally FieldChris Cooper, B.J. Novak, and Felicity Jones.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd.

Sony Pictures has unveiled new images from two very different Cameron Diaz films slated for release this year.  First up is director Jake Kasdan’s (Bad Teacher) comedy Sex Tape, which stars Diaz and Jason Segel as a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has been stolen, set out to recover the tape and ensure that their reputations aren’t ruined.  These images give us a first look at the ensemble beyond Diaz and Segel, as we see Rob Lowe, Ellie Kemper, and Rob CorddrySex Tape opens in theaters July 25th.

The other Cameron Diaz film is director Will Gluck’s (Easy A) musical redo Annie, in which Diaz takes on the role of the mean Miss Hannigan.  The young Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) takes on the title role as an orphan who is taken in by a New York mayoral candidate (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  The film’s first trailer promised a few full musical numbers, and these images tease just that.  Annie opens in theaters December 25th.

While there’s been a lot of footage released for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, today features the debut of the film’s first official clip.  Even as Webb recently addressed the concern of too many villains in this sequel, it wouldn’t be much of a movie without a bad guy.  Luckily, we get a look at the main one in this new clip, as Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) attempts to talk down Max Dillon/Electro (Jamie Foxx) before the situation gets drastically out of hand.

Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart in Talks to Star in BLACK PHANTOM; Tim Story May Direct

Screen Gems is putting together a promising package for the new film Black PhantomVariety reports that Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart are in talks to star in the pic, while Hart’s Ride Along director Tim Story is in discussions to take the helm.  The story revolves around a double-crossed mob hitman who enlists the help of the same hitman who had been sent to kill him, the Black Phantom.  The genre of the pic is unclear, but with Hart onboard there’s no doubt at least some comedic element to the film.  Story and Hart made Ride Along to great success, with the film scoring $140 million at the worldwide box office and spawning a sequel, which is expected to begin filming this year.

Foxx has two high profile films opening this year, as he plays the primary villain Electro in Sony’s sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this May and stars opposite the young Quvenzhane Wallis in Sony’s musical redo Annie.  Hart is next set to shoot the comedy Get Hard opposite Will Ferrell.

First Trailer for ANNIE Starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx, and Cameron Diaz

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.

Trailer Teaser for ANNIE Starring Quvenzhane Wallis, Jamie Foxx, and Cameron Diaz

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.

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

by     Posted 316 days ago

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.
