David Robert Mitchell has made two feature films: the somewhat-overlooked teen drama Myth of the American Sleepover, and last year’s indie horror hit It Follows. The director (rightfully) earned quite a bit of acclaim for his atmospheric sophomore effort, and it looks like we won’t have to wait too long to see what Mitchell does next, as he’s recruited Andrew Garfield to headline his latest project.

What Marvel Got Right About Spider-Man That His Solo Movies Got Wrong

by Matt Singer May 3, 2016 @ 10:42 AM
Oh what a different 18 months makes. A year ago, last fall Spider-Man fans were facing an entire universe of Spidey movies they didn’t particularly want; a third Amazing Spider-Man about the continuing and not-particularly-exciting adventures of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker, plus spinoff movies for Venom and the Sinister Six. Things got so bad for Spider-Man that when rumors began circulating that Sony was considering an Aunt May movie, Sony had to publicly dismiss those rumors as “silly” with “no validity whatsoever” because people thought that the company that made Amazing Spider-Man 2 might actually be dumb enough to make an Aunt May movie.

Ever since Sony and Marvel finally reached an agreement to combine forces for the future good of Spider-Man (thus allowing the web-slinger to crossover into the MCU), the studios have been at the receiving end of a lot of questions from fans. But they’re not the only ones — now that he’s no longer playing Spider-Man, everyone wants to know what Andrew Garfield thinks about all of this.

Comic Strip: Someone Asked Andrew Garfield About the New Spider-Man Reboot

by Jacob Hall August 17, 2015 @ 12:16 PM
Oh, Andrew Garfield. No one blames you for the creative and commercial failure of the Amazing Spider-Man movies. You would’ve made a fine Peter Parker. At times, you even were a fine Peter Parker. But you were saddled with poor screenplays and a director who was at constant war with his studio. You did everything that you possibly could with nothing. We remember your first big Comic-Con apperance. We know you’re a fan of the character. And we’re oh-so-sorry that this happened to you.

‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ Would Have Included Venom, Brought Characters Back From the Dead

Before Marvel and Sony reached their highly-anticipated agreement to combine forces for a Spider-Man reboot, there was a lot of confusion about where the web-slinger was headed. We saw some of that in the e-mails following the Sony hack, accompanied by rumors about potential character returns and various spinoff plans. Now that director Marc Webb and the cast have moved on, they’ve begun to clarify what a third Amazing Spider-Man film would have been like.

‘99 Homes’ Trailer: Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon Look Right at Home in This Economic Thriller

by Matt Singer June 3, 2015 @ 12:25 PM
Boy, Andrew Garfield lost that Spider-Man gig and times got tough fast. Okay, maybe not. But in the trailer for 99 Homes, the new thriller from director Ramin Bahrani, Garfield plays a man evicted from his home by a remorseless real-estate broker played by Michael Shannon. Desperate to provide for his family, Garfield’s character goes to work for Shannon’s; soon he’s the one kicking poor people out of their beloved homes. It’s sink-or-swim in modern America, Shannon’s character says. But is it okay to keeping swimming if you have to drown other people and use their lifeless bodies to stay afloat? That’s the question.

Production on the film recently wrapped in Taiwan, and thanks to EW, we now have our first official still from Silence, starring Andrew Garfield and Shinya Tsukamoto. Garfield portrays a Jesuit priest in the spiritual drama, and the first sneak peek at the movie definitely looks a bit dramatic.
