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.

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 »

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dane DeHaan plays Harry Osborn, a role previously played by James Franco in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. In Anton Corbijn‘s Life, he’ll follow even further in Franco’s footsteps by picking up another of his old characters: James Dean.
DeHaan and Twilight star Robert Pattinson have joined the fact-based drama, which chronicles the friendship between the Rebel Without a Cause actor and photographer Dennis Stock. The two became close when they took a road trip together in 1955 for a Life magazine article. Hit the jump for more details.

A while ago we saw half the trailer for Kill Your Darlings, the minor Sundance hit in which Daniel Radcliffe plays a young Allen Ginsberg. The film charts the ways in which Ginsberg, newly arrived at school, falls into friendship with the seductive Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) and how their circle of friends — the nucleus of the Beat movement — was broken when one of them ended up dead.
Now we’ve got the full trailer, as well as a clip from the film. The trailer is half manic Beat energy, and then the second half becomes something a little more ominous. You’ll also see glimpses of some of the excellent supporting cast, which includes Jack Huston, Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, David Cross, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Elizabeth Olsen, Kyra Sedgwick and John Cullum.
Update: Yahoo posted the official version of the trailer, and we’ve got that embed below..

Okay, now they’re just screwing with us. For months, director Marc Webb has been teasing fans about what’s going to happen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 via his Twitter feed. Then he brought some very cool footage to Comic-Con and hinted at other heroes joining Spider-Man and maybe even the formation of the Sinister Six, a super-team of Spider-Man’s greatest foes.
The first of three Spider-sequels doesn’t hit theaters until May 2014 but a few new photos have surfaced online. Most are things we’ve seen before but one of feels like Sony is trolling some fans. You’ll see what we mean below. Read More »

There’s a 30-second clip going around today that is being billed as the teaser trailer for Kill Your Darlings, in which Daniel Radcliffe adopts an American accent to play beat poet Allen Ginsberg. In truth, this seems to be a truncated upload of the full trailer; the end of this clip is clearly not meant to be the real end of the trailer.
Still, this is a film that many of you have been curious about for some time, and so it’s worth a look at the footage. We see Radcliffe as a young Ginsberg. He arrives at school and quickly falls into the orbit of the seductive, charismatic Lucien Carr, played by rising star Dane DeHaan. There’s a shadow of a threat from Carr’s older friend David, played by Michael C. Hall (Dexter) but you don’t get to see much of that here. You also don’t get to see even a hint of the film’s most scandalous moments, which include a sex scene featuring Radcliffe that will make some audiences see the actor in a very different light.
In general, this story doesn’t end well at all — “kill” in the title is quite literal — but this is a nice little tease for those who want to see what Radcliffe has done after the end of Harry Potter and the success of The Woman in Black. Check out the footage below; we’ll update with the full trailer when it becomes available. Read More »
