The ensemble melodrama in the face of tragedy has long been a favorite of Oscar voters. Think 'Crash,' think 'JFK.' Meaty parts for actors, real drama. 'Parkland' is the latest, which focuses on the aftermath of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and has assembled Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti and Billy Bob Thornton (among others) to document one of America's darkest moments.
Regarding 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' director Marc Webb told ScreenCrush back during Comic-Con that, while many of us may think we know what'll go down in the Spidey sequel, we'll definitely be surprised. His words are still ringing in our minds as the next batch of photos from the film has dropped to tease one of those buzzed-about rumors: the Sinister Six.
Over the weekend, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' continued to shoot outside in New York City. Of course, Andrew Garfield was on hand, but, perhaps more importantly, Paul Giamatti was there, back in his Rhino CGI suit. And if you've been paying attention, this has been the best thing about the 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' set so far because, clearly, Paul Giamatti is going full-tilt bonkers for his performance in this film.
As 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' crew is learning, the problem with shooting in the public eye are the paparazzi. Tons upon tons of set photos have already leaked out online, giving us first looks at Jamie Foxx's Electro, Emma Stone's Gwen Stacey and even Spidey's new suit. And now the action keeps coming.
Following director Marc Webb's unveiling of the first "official" photo of Paul Giamatti as the Rhino in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' comes a full-body snapshot of the character wreaking havoc -- as the Rhino tends to do.
Much of the plot of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' has been kept tightly under wraps, but we do know that the film will feature three iconic Spidey villains. We've seen photos of Jamie Foxx's Electro, we know that Chris Cooper has been cast as Norman "The Green Goblin" Osborn and now, we have our first look at Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich, AKA, The Rhino!
