Last week, a three-poster array from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaked out that answered a major question about Marc Webb‘s sequel. The poster confirmed the film features at least three villains, including Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin (as well as Paul Giamatti‘s Rhino and Jamie Foxx‘s Electro). At the time though, the images were only low-res. Now, Sony Pictures has released the high resolution, official images, and you can blow them up and dissect the images to your heart’s content. Check them out below, along with a new synopsis.
UPDATE: Five new images, not from these posters, have also come online.

As can occasionally happen in the new world of Kevin Smith, the writer/director/podcaster/film geek came online Tuesday and dropped a massive update on his upcoming film Tusk. Smith has tons of praise for the film, which finished principal photograph last month, and has only two more days of filming to go once a mystery actor becomes available.
While his original plan was to rush the film for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Smith is so happy with the final product he’s holding it back so he can add in those final scenes and give the film a “monster movie score!” He’s hired Chris Drake (The Dark Knight Returns animated films) to do that. Instead of showing the movie at Sundance, he’ll debut a trailer in Park City.
Read much more, including where Smith could film Clerks III, and see some artwork for the in-film podcast featuring Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment, below. Read More »
Thursday marks a pretty momentous occasion in the DC Universe. That’s the day the latest episode of Arrow premieres, with the first appearance of a major character in both the TV universe, and maybe the movie universe as well. We’re talking about Barry Allen, aka The Flash, who’ll have a two episode arc on Arrow starting with Thursday’s episode, The Scientist.
Like the grand comic book tradition of “first appearances” though, Allen (played by Grant Gustin) doesn’t show up fully formed as The Flash. He’s just a scientist investigating a crime. Watch a clip below. Read More »
Next week, New York gets a taste of Los Angeles as Gallery 1988 brings their signature event, Crazy 4 Cult, back to the Big Apple. The show opens December 13 and while we’ll have much more on the event in the upcoming days, two pieces in particular deserve to be called out.
They’re paintings by Jason Edmiston, who recently had a solo gallery show at Mondo in Austin, TX. Edmiston captured the climax of Steven Spielberg‘s Raiders of the Lost Ark with two paintings showing Colonel Dietrich and Major Arnold Toht in the horrific final moments. These works aren’t for the faint of heart, but they will find a place in the heart of any Indiana Jones fan. Check them out below. Read More »

The National Football League is known for a slew of iconic names, but only one has his name on the championship trophy. When a team wins the Super Bowl, they received the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named after the legendary and innovative coach of the Green Bay Packers. Lombardi coached the Packers from 1959-1967, a run during which they won both the first and second Super Bowls.
Now, writer/director J.C. Chandor (All is Lost, Margin Call) has been hired by Legendary Pictures to write and potentially direct a film based on the most celebrated coach in NFL history. Read More »
