For most of the past year, the only members of the public who had any real idea what to expect from the villain in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man were those in attendance at Sony’s panel at Comic Con last year, when the first footage of the Lizard was shown. Over the past couple months we’ve seen images of licensed products that showed a hint of the character, and the full-length trailer revealed quite a bit as well.
But the best look at the actual face of the character now comes via more merchandizing. In this case, a big poster shows us just what Marc Webb and his designers and effects team have cooked up as the post-transformation visage of the character played by Rhys Ifans. Read More »

After starring with Ben Affleck in last year’s The Company Men, Rosemarie DeWitt is now set to work with Affleck’s BFF Matt Damon in Promised Land. DeWitt has landed the female lead in the “Capraesque” tale, which Gus Van Sant will direct. The script comes from Damon and John Krasinski, based on a story Krasinski cooked up with Dave Eggers. As previously reported, Damon will lead the cast as a sales exec who begins to question his whole life after arriving in a small town, while Krasinski will play a rival exec. DeWitt’s role has not been revealed at this time.
DeWitt’s other upcoming roles include three films due out this summer: Your Sister’s Sister, Neighborhood Watch, and The Odd Life of Timothy Green. In addition, she has a role in the drama Nobody Walks, which also stars Krasinksi and is expected to hit theaters this year. [Deadline]
After the jump, Rhys Ifans and Toby Jones get involved in Jennifer Lawrence’s war against Bradley Cooper.

The viral ad campaign for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man, Mark of the Spider-Man, started up last week, and it started to pay off for everyone today with the first clip from the film. This is a pure Peter Parker clip; there’s no big web-swinging or Lizard-fighting action here. But you will get to see some of how Andrew Garfield is playing Peter Parker in this telling of Spidey’s story. Read More »

I know already I’ve gone on and on about how excited I am by HBO’s adaptation of Jonathan Franzen‘s The Corrections, but considering the talent signed on — Noah Baumbach, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest — can you blame me? Today the good news continues with the report that Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rhys Ifans could be up for parts in the series as well. More details after the jump.

Sony has unveiled the official website for The Amazing Spider-Man, with several new images, character descriptions, a synopsis, and yes, the promise of more Spider-Man. It’s not surprising that the studio’s been working hard to market this film, but it is nice that most of what we’ve seen so far looks pretty good, with the website being no exception. And it’s even better to see further proof that, yes, Marc Webb‘s Amazing Spider-Man really and truly is more than just a retread of Sam Raimi’s trilogy from the ’00s. More after the jump.

I’m not going to assume that this is true for everyone, but I think a lot of people in my generation and the one or two that follow me have had the “it’s just different now” marriage conversation with some elder family members. For many couples, it takes a lot longer to get to the point where marriage seems like the best step to take, and even after getting engaged, the path to the altar isn’t always a short one.
So here are Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel, the team behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the co-writers of The Muppets, to toy with that generational attitude towards marriage in The Five-Year Engagement. Based on this new trailer, the film appears to take a gently comic approach to telling the story of a couple (Segel and Emily Blunt) whose nuptials are continually preempted by other life events. Check it out below. Read More »
