The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit this morning, and whatever you think it suggests about the movie being advertised, there’s certainly a lot of stuff to talk about in those couple minutes. And so director Marc Webb and his primary cast, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx, have obliged, by commenting on key elements of the trailer. Below, you can watch a video that pauses the trailer often so that the creators can talk about what’s going on. Read More »

Here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… well, since last week, anyway. Sony has unleashed the newest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which once again stars Andrew Garfield as the young webslinger.
The sequel sees Spidey crossing paths with new threats, including Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, as well as an old friend, Dane DeHaan‘s Harry Osborn. Marc Webb returns as director. Check out the video after the jump.

The first trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been out for a few hours now which, in Internet time, means it’s old news. (If you haven’t seen it, click here.) By now, fans have tried to dissect the secrets it holds, and there are plenty. We clearly see Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) as the Green Goblin. We clearly see Peter has to deal with the actions of his deceased father (Campbell Scott). We see Peter fighting Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and we see why they cut out Mary Jane. There’s a lot of story here. So much, in fact, the trailer makes it look like Green Goblin and Rhino are the primary villains and Electro (Jamie Foxx) is second tier. Which is simply not the case.
Despite all that, the biggest surprise in the trailer comes at the 1:16 mark. It’s a quick shot that, one site reports, is the post-credits tease of the Sinister Six. Did you catch it? Check it out below. Read More »
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.

One of the biggest gripes audiences had with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 was that it featured too many villains — there were Venom, the Sandman, and a Green Goblin-influenced Harry Osborn. That’s a lot, and it seemed like easing up would be a good idea, but Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn’t backing off from the “everything and the kitchen sink” approach. The film features Electro as a primary baddie, but also the Rhino, and one more antagonist.
A recent poster reveal gave up that third person’s identity (which had been widely speculated, but still) and now we’ve got a close-up that gives us even more info.
If the headline didn’t clue you in, the stuff below may be marketing, but it will count as a spoiler to many of you. Read More »
The full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming on December 5, but here are three brief bits of footage to show off the film’s web-swinging hero. Along with the teasing looks at Spidey in action, these clips feature (in Spanish) the Rise of Electro subtitle that has started to appear on international marketing for the movie. (The US version of one of these spots, as seen on Facebook, doesn’t have the subtitle.)
There’s no hint here of the trio of villains that are teased on one recent set of posters for the movie, but expect to see them in the full trailer that drops later this week.

Video games don’t have their version of the Oscars, but if they did, Naughty Dog’s latest game The Last of Us would be a strong contender this year. Released earlier this summer for PlayStation 3, the dramatic action game follows a young man named Joel who escorts an important girl named Ellie across a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies and other unpleasantness. Think Children of Men meets The Walking Dead, with a little The Professional thrown in.
Since the game’s release this summer, there’s been no mention of a film adaptation but that ends now. Sony has registered the domains TheLastOfUs-Movie.com and TheLastOfUsMovie.net. Read More »
