The Amazing Spider-Man 2 might be filled with villains, but the most important one is Electro. It may not feel like that in some of the more recent trailers but the first full Amazing Spider-Man 2 clip makes it pretty clear. Set in the middle of Times Square, this quick, minute long scene features Spider-Man’s (Andrew Garfield) first encounter with a fully-operational Electro, played by Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx. We’ve seen snippets from this scene before, but not the whole thing in sequence. Check it out below. Read More »

It’s really, really good to be Kevin Hart right now. The rising star is coming off two big hits and has several more comedies lined up for the next few years, one of which is a sequel to this year’s Ride Along. Now he’s booked yet another high-profile gig: The Black Phantom, starring Jamie Foxx.
While the new movie is unrelated to Hart’s burgeoning Ride Along franchise, it re-teams him with many of the same key players. Ride Along director Tim Story is in talks to helm, while Ride Along producer Will Packer is producing. Hit the jump to get all the details on the new project that has this team all hot and bothered.

Quvenzhané Wallis was an unknown when she was cast in the offbeat indie Beasts of the Southern Wild, but her winning personality and natural talent won her fans and earned her accolades in no time. Now she’s applying those qualities to a more conventional project, Will Gluck‘s updated adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Annie.
The first =trailer offers plenty of chances to see Wallis in action, singing and dancing her way through modern-day Harlem. Not even the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) can keep Wallis’s Annie down, and in seemingly no time at all she’s charmed her way into the life of kindly billionaire Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx). Watch the first trailer after the jump.

In commercials, trailers, and sizzle reels, it feels like we’ve already seen 10 or 15 minutes of Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But the sequel, which opens May 2, is jam-packed with characters and a new international trailer yet again proves we ain’t seen nothing yet. It runs three minutes and features a very good portion of new footage, most of which focuses on Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, a primary figure in the story who’s been an afterthought in much of the more recent promotions. Check it out below. Read More »
A third full length look at Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has just hit the net. Compared to the four minute Super Bowl spot, it’s a little lacking, but there is some new dialogue and footage from the film, exuding a tone that’s at first light and fun, followed by menacing and stressful. With the film opening May 2, I doubt we’ll be seeing a lot more than what we’ve already seen, but if you are excited for the film, this trailer is worth a watch. Check it out below. Read More »

As revelers crowded into New York City’s Times Square last night to ring in the New Year, Electro (Jamie Foxx) was dropping by the iconic intersection for a different, far more nefarious reason.
In a new clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that debuted at last night’s festivities, the supervillain makes a pit stop in midtown Manhattan to soak up some of its electricity and to release some of his fury. Luckily, our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) is on hand to try and stop him. Check out the clip after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Seeing so much of Electro well before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens should have been a tip-off of some sort. For a while, we knew that Marc Webb‘s sequel would feature the Rhino and at least one Osborn, but it seemed like Jamie Foxx, as Electro, would be the real center of the movie.
But we know now that one of the Osborns will end up suiting up as the Green Goblin (or some variant of the character) and that this is all building to a Sinister Six film, in which a bunch of bad guys get to take center stage. And still, it’s Electro that we’re seeing the most of, while Sony keeps the detailed Rhino and Goblin reveals for a later date.
There are two new Electro shots online, and you can see them below. Read More »

2011’s Rio was entirely founded on the premise that Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway) were the only blue macaws left in the entire world. The whole reason Blu left his comfy Minnesota home was to meet and mate with Jewel, lest their species die out altogether.
But maybe Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro) isn’t such a great ornithologist after all, because in Rio 2 it turns out that there are others of their kind out there in the jungle. A whole flock of ’em, in fact. And unfortunately for Blu, that crowd includes Jewel’s dad Eduardo (Andy Garcia) and her handsome ex-boyfriend Roberto (Bruno Mars). Watch the newest full-length trailer after the jump.
