We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Out now in the UK and set for a May 2nd release in the US, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ is directed by Marc Webb.
I understand, coming into ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ you and Marc Webb talked a lot about the huge duality between Spider-Man and Peter Parker. What were some of the key things you wanted to touch on in this film?
Andrew Garfield: It’s hard to be Peter Parker, but it’s great to be Spider-Man. As Peter Parker, he has all of the same problems that we all have – girl problems, money problems. But when he puts on the suit, it’s a massive release. He can breathe. Spider-Man always knows the right thing to do – he’s a vessel for good, heroic energy and saving people. He takes joy and pleasure in it, and a playfulness comes out of him. And at the end of the day, what I love about him is that he’s just trying his best – and he doesn’t feel like his best is ever good enough. He has an over developed sense of responsibility. He’s plate-spinning.
This time last week Peter Jackson announced that the much-anticipated final film in his ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy will now been titled ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.’ With that mind, Luke Evans briefly shared his thoughts on the new title to Digital Spy. “I actually think it’s absolutely right because when it was two films There and Back Again would’ve been the second film’s title. Now it’s three films it’s become redundant,” the Bard the Bowman actor explained. “We have the Battle of the Five Armies which we focus on, it’s a very important part of the story. I think it’s right, I think it’s appropriate that it’s changed and I think Peter would’ve thought about it with a lot of care. I think the decision’s right – when you see the film you’ll understand exactly why.” The film, previously titled ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again,’ will be released worldwide on December 17th.
This song from the fantastic ‘Frank’ soundtrack has arrived online, featuring Michael Fassbender belting out ‘I Love You All.’ Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did, Garage, Adam & Paul) and penned by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), the film is released in the UK and Ireland on May 9th and in the US from August 22nd. ‘Frank’ stars Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gylenhaal, Scoot McNairy and Fassbender as the titular character, a brilliant and eccentric musician who wears a giant papier–mache head at all times.
Domhnall Gleeson plays Jon, a wannabe musician who finds himself out of his depth when he joins a maverick pop band led by the enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender)—a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head—and his terrifying sidekick Clara (Maggie Gylenhaal). It is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.
