Are there too many villains in The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Director Marc Webb knows you might be concerned that this sequel has too many characters for its own good. A common complaint about Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 was that the film featured too many villains, and was consequently unfocused and unable to do justice to any of them. So with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 having not only Electro as the core baddie, but also the Rhino and some version of the Green Goblin, fans have wondered if this film would follow the same path.
During a recent panel discussion Webb demonstrated that he is aware of the possible comparison, and explained a bit about why his film will be different. Read More »
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get blamed for indirectly killing a guy, have our sexuality come into full bloom, hunt down a guy for funsies, get fake blood on everything, and try to make a kid with two women.

Crossing the Australian outback on foot with nothing but a trusty dog and four temperamental camels would prove an impossible challenge for most people. But when one has already braved the wilds of Wonderland, maybe a harsh desert trek doesn’t seem so tough.
Former Disney heroine Mia Wasikowska leads John Curran‘s Tracks as real-life traveller Robyn Davidson, who set out on her cross-country journey in 1977. Her journey was documented by National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who’s played here by possible future Star Wars villain Adam Driver. Watch the new Tracks trailer after the jump.

Want a real-life story worthy of Marvel Comics’ long-running series What If? The current wave of Marvel movies could have happened a lot earlier, or much differently, if plans begun in the early ’70s had come to fruition.
The late French director Alain Resnais, who died just a week ago, was responsible for some of the most powerful films in French cinema. The concentration camp documentary Night and Fog led to Hiroshima Mon Amour, which developed a narrative take on memory and relationships that deepened in Last Year at Marienbad and Je t’aime Je t’aime. (That’s just the beginning of his work.) Resnais is known as a science fiction fan, and genre and experimental fiction crept into his films in significant ways.
Resnais was also a lover of comic books. He claims he learned English by reading Marvel Comics, and he once wanted to make a Tintin film, decades before Spielberg and Jackson got around to it. In 1972, Resnais connected with Stan Lee of Marvel, and the two ultimately worked on a pair of scripts together. Neither was ever made, but just imagine what might have come to pass, had they gone before cameras. Read More »
