Buried in the news of Shailene Woodley‘s latest piece of casting was a major piece of news about her participation in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Marc Webb is back to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Woodley has now been confirmed to play Mary Jane Watson, a role previously played by Kirsten Dunst in the Sam Raimi films. Of course in Webb’s first film, Emma Stone played another of the famous loves of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), Gwen Stacy.
So how does this all fit? Well, Woodley’s part in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will reportedly be small in contrast to Stone’s, setting her up for a larger role in the trilogy’s conclusion, The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Read more of the spoiler filled details after the jump. Read More »

The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?
Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen Merchant, Emma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Bell, Richard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.

In a world where the Aurora Massacre didn’t take place, Gangster Squad would be now completing its theatrical run. Instead we’re just getting the film’s second trailer. Director Ruben Fleischer‘s period action film starring Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling was delayed after its climax was deemed too similar to July’s tragedy, demanding a full-on reshoot. The new footage is in the can now, and it’s full steam head towards release on January 11, 2013.
The latest trailer does hint at what changes were made but mostly focuses on the renegade group of law enforcers who aim to take down a big time gangster. Check it out below along with the new poster. Read More »
Sorry Kirsten Dunst, you’re the latest to be replaced in Sony/Columbia’s Spider-Man series. With Marc Webb confirmed to return as director for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the studio is moving forward with casting for the film, and there are a couple big reveals today.
One is that Electro is rumored as “one of the villains” under consideration for the sequel. The other is that Mary Jane Watson, played by Dunst in Sam Raimi’s films, is definitely going to appear. And Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) is the likely choice to play her. Read More »
Do you want to see a couple generations of today’s stars — Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, and many more — spouting dirty jokes? Then Movie 43, masterminded by Peter “One Half of the Farrelly Brothers” Farrelly, probably has something for you. The red-band trailer has turned into an essential component in marketing the R-rated comedy, and when the comedy is promised as a collection of particularly dirty, foul-mouthed sketches, nothing but the red-band will do.
So here’s a first look at Movie 43, which features over 20 comedy sketches from nearly a dozen directors, and a cavalcade of stars. Some of the stuff is so in line with people’s previous work that it doesn’t even seem transgressive; I think one of the Scary Movies pooped on me, so seeing Anna Faris ask for the same thing is just turnabout/fair play. But seeing Halle Berry in wild mode might be great, and it’s always fun to see Kate Winslet go blue. (Check out Romance & Cigarettes if you’ve never seen it — not a great movie, but lord, does Winslet let go there.)
Be ready for some dirty, but not off-puttingly filthy jokes in the not safe for work trailer below. Read More »
Next year, you’ll be able to see Nicolas Cage playing a caveman. And by “see” I mean “hear.” He’s the star of The Croods, a brand new 3D animated film from DreamWorks Animation.

In addition to Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman all lend their voices. The scheduled release date is March 22, 2013.

Good news for Cameron Crowe fans as mere months after his last film, the next one is gaining traction. Sony has just bought the rights to a new romantic comedy by the writer director with Emma Stone attached to star. Though not mentioned in the initial report, additional outlets are reporting the film is Deep Tiki, a tropical romance Crowe was fiddling with in 2008 with Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon attached at the time. Whether or not that’s this film or not has yet to be confirmed but Crowe will write and direct while Stone will play opposite a male, who has yet to be cast. The tone is said to be in line with the classic Crowe films like Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire. Scott Rudin is producing. Read more after the jump. Read More »

It has only been ten years since Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man swung into theaters, and Sony and Columbia have already gone in for the remake. Today Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man opens with Andrew Garfield in the title role, and Emma Stone and Rhys Ifansas the primary additional cast. The film takes the time to tell Spidey’s origin — yes, again — and spends as much time on the character interaction between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy (Stone) as it does the superhero action. Perhaps even more, actually.
The reviews of the film have been flowing in for a week, with a pretty consistent take on the movie that praises the actors and has varying degrees of distaste for much of the rest of the picture. But now’s the time to tell us what you thought, so leave your thoughts on the film after the break. As always, spoilers are expected below the fold here, and in the comments. Read More »
