Norman Osborn was teased throughout the first film of the new reboot as a man in desperation for a cure. We never actually got to see his face and we’re not even sure if that shadow at the end of the film was supposed to be him. But today, Variety reported that we’ll be able to meet the man in person, played by Oscar award winner Chris Cooper (American Beauty, Bourne Identity, Capote, Jarhead).
Imagine a world where a super villain constantly threatens the safety of your city and its citizens (particularly the women and children) and a masked vigilante does his best to thwart his dastardly plans in their every confrontation. Been there, done that, right? Now imagine that same super villain somehow gets treated and become a stable, functioning cog of our society. Continue Reading
Some of you may not know this, but they held the 2013 Academy Awards ceremony just yesterday. And on Oscar nights, Jimmy Kimmel tends to invite his friends along to create a ridiculous sketch for all of us to enjoy. They did a bit called Movie: The Movie last time around, and they were looking to create a sequel trailer even bigger than the first one with the likes of John Krasinski, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain, and Oprah joining in on the fun.

It was rumored a few weeks back that Elizabeth Olsen was in talks to play April O’Neil for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. Apparently, Michael Bay reconciled his working relationship with Megan Fox and she has agreed to play the sexy intrepid news reporter (I was hoping they’d go with her scientist depiction, but alas) who allies herself with the turtles.

A week ago, Marc Webb tweeted a short test footage of what Spiderman’s new lenses would look like. Today, he gave us a look at what his costume will look like (with the lenses incorporated!!!!!) in the sequel so that the fans could salivate, while the toy people could get to start producing some collectible busts for the new Spidey flick.

So it’s been some time since Kevin Smith announced that he was making a third Clerks installment, thus creating a trilogy for himself. What I didn’t realize was that he’s been flip flopping on what format he wanted to use for what is presumably the final story. According to Moviepilot, Kevin (we’re gym buddies) first wanted to make a movie out of it, but I guess he deemed that too pedestrian. So then he pitched it as a Broadway show (it would’ve been amusing to see them do a “Berserker” number), but then he changed his mind again. THEN he wanted to try his hands on turning it into a short web series, but that wasn’t wildly inventive enough for him. Continue Reading
I”m sure studios talk about doing more sequels all the time in their respective meetings, but Universal decided to open up and publicly announce that they’ll probably be milking a ton of their in-house cash cows (whether they make money or not). They saw some success early this year with Mama and Identity Thief and they were quick to latch onto those properties. I assume Identity Thief will go the way of The Hangover films, meaning they’ll probably rehash the same story in a different setting. Continue Reading
