AndrewSS7 has put together these two stellar fan-made posters for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ the sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit ‘The Amazing Spider-Man.’ The sequel stars Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Jamie Foxx (Max Dillon/Electro), Shailene Woodley (Mary Jane Watson), Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborne), Colm Feore (?), Paul Giamatti (Aleksei Sytsevich/The Rhino), and Sally Field (May Parker).
In ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. The latest chapter in the ‘Spider-Man’ story is set for release on May 2nd, 2014.
A supernatural love story set in the South, ‘Beautiful Creatures’ tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a young man longing to escape his small town, and Lena (Alice Englert), a mysterious new girl. Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town. Oscar nominee Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, P.S. I Love You) directs from his adaptation of the first novel in the best-selling series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The film also stars Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann and Emma Thompson. ‘Beautiful Creatures’ is out now. My interview with Emmy Rossum for the film can be found here, my interview with Alice Englert can be read here, and my interview with Jeremy Irons can be found here (lots more to come).
In ‘Beautiful Creatures’ you play the central character of Ethan Wate, who, having lost his mother, is saddled with adult responsibilities before his time. What was it about this particular character and story that you found appealing?
Alden Ehrenreich: When I first read the script, within three pages I knew I wanted to play the part. Ethan has this romantic restless, ambitious thing in him. He wants to travel and he wants to see the world, he wants something better. I really felt for him in that way, and that feeling of his, which is very hopeful and optimistic – and that really carries what he does throughout the story, it all stems from that feeling. You hope that when you read a script, you feel it and see it, and I really saw it. The clarity of the character’s voice hooked me. Almost everybody else is content with the small-town high school social life, but Ethan envisions something more. I really admire that hopeful optimism in spite of all he’s been through. I also liked that even though he’s been through a lot he still is full of humour and wit.
Variety are reporting that Michael Mann (Heat, Ali, The Last of the Mohicans) is set to direct an untitled thriller for Legendary Pictures with Chris Hemsworth attached to star. Mann has been developing this project for over a year, co-writing the script with Morgan Davis Foehl, who is also penning ‘Mass Effect’ for Legendary. While plot details are currently few and far between, it is said that the film takes place in a world of cyber threats and attacks.
Michael Mann’s last directional effort was 2009′s ‘Public Enemies,’ which starred Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Since ‘Public Enemies’ the director had been linked to a handful of films, including ‘Gold,’ which had Christian Bale circling; and the racing pic ‘Go Like Hell’ for Fox. Chris Hemsworth is currently attached to Steven Spielberg’s ‘Robopocalypse,’ which has been delayed, the sequel to ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ and the adventure ‘In the Heart of the Sea,’ which has Ron Howard circling.
Not long after debuting the new theatrical trailer for ‘Fast & Furious 6,’ Paramount Pictures has revealed this character poster for the film centering on Paul Walker’s Brian. Alongside Walker, the likes of Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, Luke Evans and Gina Carano also star. Directed by Justin Lin, the film lands in cinemas on May 24th.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
