As 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' continues production, to hopefully reveal tons of goodies during Comic-Con 2013, a major cut was made to the cast -- Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson was completely dropped from the second film. Though we, especially those familiar with the comic book storyline, already figured it out, the reason for this change has been revealed.
'Amazing Spider-Man 2' continued its New York City shoot this weekend including a pivotal scene from the upcoming sequel. We say "pivotal" to avoid spoilers but we think you Spider-fans reading this know what we're talking about. Yes, that scene. See photos from the scene in question find out how the iconic comic scene will play out on screen. Spoilers ahead!
With all the snapshots from the set and promotional material already released for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' chances are we'll get to see all there is before the film hits theaters on May 2, 2014. Just the other day, Marc Webb gave us our first look at Jamie Foxx's Max Dillon, and prior to that we saw his transformation into the supervillain Electro. Now, even more behind-the-scenes photos have surfaced. Take a look!
Much like the characters within the film, my attitude toward 'The Croods' evolved.
The first 25 minutes or so are awful. The uninteresting, darn-near-ugly character designs, dumb jokes and frenetic, boisterous action in lieu of ingenuity or thrills in 'The Croods'' first act is a chore. I was stunned to check my watch and realize how much left I had in the movie. “Man,” I thought to myself, “it's amazing how wretched some of these kids' films can be compared to something like 'Rango.'”
Then the bottom fell out (in a surprisingly literal way) and 'The Croods' transformed. “Man,” I thought to myself, “this is the weirdest, most adventuresome and gorgeous kids' film I've seen since 'Rango.'”
Director Alejandro González Iñárritu has knack for attracting impressive names to his movies and his upcoming 'Birdman' is no exception. Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis have all joined the project, which sounds like an interesting left turn for a filmmaker usually known for his pitch black dramas.
Can cavemen be adorable? Dreamworks Animation's 'The Croods' seems to think so, but the jury's still out on whether or not the result is cute or creepy. Anyway, first clip from the March 22nd release has arrived and it seems that awkward romantic situations were also a thing back in the prehistoric times. Oh, those cavemen! They were just like us!
'Dumb and Dumber 2' was definitely happening. And then it was off. But then Jim Carrey was back and it was back on again. And now, according to director Peter Farrelly, it's "100% guaranteed that it's a possibility." They're in talks with Warner Bros. for the sequel - titled 'Dumb and Dumber To' - and want Channing Tatum and Emma Stone to join Carrey and Jeff Daniels.
It might not be accurate to call the red-band trailer for 'Movie 43' "short and sweet", because while it is short, there's nothing sweet about it. It's only offers up about one minute of footage from the upcoming raunchy anthology, but it's enough to make you blush, gag or both.
Watch it after the break, knowing full well that it's NSFW.
Though 'Pacific Rim' is still months from being released, director Guillermo del Toro has already lined up his next project, 'Crimson Peak,' which returns him to his more horror-centric roots. And word is that Emma Stone might be the first actor to sign up for del Toro's haunted house movie.
