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.

New Images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Provide a Good Look at Green Goblin’s Glider [Updated with Hi-Res]

Despite the fact that the movie doesn’t open for over a month, Sony is nowhere near done with it’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 marketing blitz.  Today’s batch of new images offer a behind-the-scenes look at the practical version of Green Goblin’s (Dane DeHaan) glider, another look at Paul Giamatti’s Rhino, and then a couple of other images that might cross the line into possible spoiler territory.  It’s been said to death, but given the amount of footage and such that we’ve seen from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it feels like we have enough to plot out the entire story.  Despite feeling overwhelmed by it, the footage actually looks quite good, so hopefully director Marc Webb still has plenty of surprises waiting for moviegoers on opening weekend.

Novak, and Chris CooperThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd. [Update: We've updated the article with high-resolution versions of some of the images.]

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.

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.

Additionally, FX has finalized its cast for the drama series pilot HokePaul Giamatti is already attached to produce and star in the potential show, which is described as a darkly comedic drama that revolves around a hardboiled and possibly insane homicide detective in pre-chic Miami in the early 1980s.  Scott Frank (The Lookout) wrote and will direct the pilot, and he’ll act as co-showrunner with David Manson if Hoke goes to series.  The pilot will shoot in Miami.  Hit the jump for the full cast listing.

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).

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.

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.

In the wake of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the country went into a frenzy as news stations produced headline after headline—accurate and inaccurate—of what had occurred at Dealey Plaza that afternoon.  But what happened amidst the chaos of one of the most devastating events in US history and how did those involved in the event respond?  Parkland delves into the aftermath, giving viewers insight into the lives of those closest to the tragedy and following them in a span of four days.  From the nurses and doctors who tended to a wounded President Kennedy to the Secret Service agents responsible for protecting him, and the infamous Abraham Zapruder who captured everything on his 8mm camera, the film focuses on the stories within the news headlines.  More after the jump.

First Clip and Two Featurettes for SAVING MR. BANKS Starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson

by     Posted 161 days ago

Disney has released the first clip and two featurettes for John Lee Hancock‘s Saving Mr. Banks.  The story focuses on Walt Disney’s (Tom Hanks) pursuit of the film rights to author P.L. Travers’ (Emma Thompson) novel Mary Poppins and the rocky relationship that formed between the two.  Judging by the brief clip, which centers on the first meeting between Disney and Travers, the two lead actors look like they’ll have some good chemistry.  As for the featurettes, one explains the appeal of the story, and the other celebrates Thompson’s performance.  The latter is a bit confusing since everyone is praising the complexity of the character and the depth of Thompson’s performance, but all we’re seeing is a prim-and-proper fish-out-of-water.  At the end of the featurette, we get a glimpse of the dramatic side, but I’m worried these moments will feel forced in the movie.  My current prediction is that Hancock has created a nice picture that will invite backlash if it picks up any awards steam.

Hit the jump to check out the clip and featurettes.  The film also stars Paul Giamatti, Bradley WhitfordJason Schwartzman, B.J. Novak, Annie Rose Buckley, Ruth Wilson, Rachel Griffiths, Kathy Baker, and Colin FarrellSaving Mr. Banks will premiere at AFI Fest in November and opens in theaters on December 20th.
