Gifted Trailer


Mary is a bright and happy little girl who lives with her uncle, Frank; he is her guardian and care giver since the death of her mother. Frank's sister made his promise that he'd always do right by her daughter and give her the most normal life possible - despite her loss.

Frank and Mary have a very close relationship and Frank home tutors the little blonde haired girl but as she gets older and her ability to learn more develops, Frank decides it's time for his niece to enrol at the local junior school. Despite Mary's pleas (and discussion to the point of 'Ad nauseum') to her uncle to let her stay home, Frank knows that she must start adjusting to a more normal way of life.

Howard School is a friendly local elementary and for the first time in her life, Mary is part of a classroom and soon her teacher discovers that Mary is an extremely clever girl - a child genius. The head teacher approaches her uncle Frank and tells him that she could potentially get Mary enrolled at a school for gifted children but thinking about his sisters last wishes, Frank decides she's best where she is.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' - Not Perfect, But Really, Really Fun


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Marc Webb Jamie Foxx

Superhero movies have been striving towards the almost unobtainable goal set by The Dark Knight trilogy when it redefined the genre. But, inner turmoil and moral questions aside, there is room for a playful superhero, and despite The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s failings, it sure offers up a rip-roaring adventure.

The critics aren’t falling head over heels for Marc Webb’s follow up to 2012’s winter blockbuster, not by any means – in fact, it shares the exact same 73% score on Rotten Tomatoes as its predecessor holds, at the time of writing.

Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Marc Webb

Andrew Garfield reprises his role as the web-slinging city-sprawling Spider-Man in The Amazing-Spider Man 2, which hits cinemas on April 18. In these new clips, we get a glimpse of both Electro’s explosive power, but of Garfield’s comic acting, which compliments the action nicely.

Amazing Spider-Man 2The Amazing-Spider Man 2 - living up to the name

Hype for this film is big. With Jamie Foxx looking amazing as Electro and Paul Giamatti looking pretty crazy as Rhino, comic book fans can’t wait to get their eyes on the second Amazing instalment, especially after the first fared so well with the critics. Of course, Sony Pictures will care more about the box office – and it didn’t fair too badly their either.

The Amazing Spiderman 2 - Clips Trailer


Peter Parker is facing a period of deep confusion in every aspect of his life. No longer is everything black and white, nor is it easy to know what the right thing to do is anymore. He's struggling to cope with the death of his dear Uncle Ben, while still feeling unfamiliar with his past in regards to his parents. He's also trying to hold down a relationship with Gwen Stacy, but she ultimately adds to his troubles when she finds herself in a dilemma of her own. Meanwhile in his professional capacity as Spider-Man, he's not finding it easy to differentiate between the villains, the heroes and the just plain hard-done by. He faces deadly battles with the formidable Rhino and the rage-filled Electro; the latter of who it turns out is just as frightened of his own power as everybody else is. It turns out that there is a darker force happening elsewhere, and when his friend Harry Osborn returns, he starts to see OsCorp's sinister involvement.

Spider Man Andrew Garfield Marc Webb Jamie Foxx Paul Giamatti

Sony Pictures announced in Thursday, 12 December that they have big plans for the Amazing SPIDER-MAN series, plans that involve various spin-offs and possibly even an ensemble release or two in the not-so-distant future. The announcement comes as Sony try to keep up with Disney and Warner Brothers, who have already gained a foot-hold in the superhero movie business, with Sony hoping to capitalised on the popularity of Spidey and his many cross-over villains and fellow heroes.

Spiderman isn't leaving Sony's rooster any time soon

On Thursday, Sony Pictures announced - via Electro Arrives - that they are working on two villain-centred spin-offs from the Spidey franchise: Venom and The Sinister Six. This will give the film company opportunity to develop two major aspects from the Spider-Man comic books without having to rely on the Amazing Spider-Man films alone. Sony announced that they have appointed a “franchise brain trust" to oversee their expansion of the Spider-Man film franchise, who will ensure the series can survive outside the confines of the Amazing Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer


Peter Parker has always had difficulty trying to prioritise his life. There's the personal side of it; the ordinary teenage angst, trying to hold down a relationship with the lovely Gwen Stacy and mourning the death of his Uncle Ben; then there's the side about saving the world from supervillains and general criminals terrorising the street as Spider-Man. While more often than not successful, he is about to face his biggest challenge yet as he is swamped by enemies such as the formidable Rhino and the quick as lightning Electro. Not only that but, as his friend Harry Osborn returns, he begins to realise that weapons manufacturer OsCorp is cropping up in all situations regarding his foes - just what is Osborn's father plotting?

Joss Whedon Clark Gregg Cobie Smulders Vin Diesel Andrew Garfield Marc Webb Jim Carrey

At the Mecca of Geekdom - the San Diego Comic-Con International - the annual Comic-Con kick started in front of an eager audience this Thursday (July 18), with the our-day event already revealing some rather juicy pieces of information about what future films and TV shows have in store. Here's what we know so far, following the first two days of geeky gossip at the annual gathering.

Cobie Smulders
Smulders appeared in the 'Agents' pilot

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was one of the biggest talking points of the firsts two days, as ABC's Avenger's spin-off was discussed by a panel including Avengers director Joss Whedon and Agents... star Clark Gregg. Gregg discussed the miraculous recovery of his Avengers character Agent Phil Coulson, who was 'killed' by Loki in the first Avengers film only to return in time for his own starring series. Revelers got more than just a frank talk, as they were treated to a world premiere of the pilot episode for Agents..., which featured fellow Avengers star Cobie Smulders and was directed by Whedon. For those of you who weren't at Comic-Con, the series premieres on September 24.

'The Amazing Spider Man 2' filming continued to get underway in New York on Sunday (May 26th 2013) leaving behind it a trail of destruction on the City streets.

A particularly devastating scene was spotted being filmed, with a mass of crashed, overturned and ablaze vehicles littering the set. Andrew Garfield was in his Spider Man garb as he addressed onlookers from atop a smashed up car through a loudspeaker. He is also seen approaching a young boy in a copycat outfit who, after what looks like a pep talk with Peter Parker's alter-ego, subsequently flees the riotous scene. The scene is the latest of on set sneak peeks that have slowly been accumulating after snaps emerged of 'Django Unchained' star Jamie Foxx showing off his new look as the blue villain Electro and Paul Giamatti from 'Cinderella Man' making a fierce appearance as equally evil baddie The Rhino. Meanwhile, Emma Stone has revealed a MAJOR spoiler about her own character (though we won't reveal it for those who haven't read the prophetic comics).

Is Jamie Foxx Lined Up To Play Electro In Next Spiderman Film?


Jamie Foxx Marc Webb Spider Man

Jamie Foxx could soon be sending shockwaves to audiences after it has emerged that he is to take on the shocking role of supervillain Electro in the planned sequel to this summers electrifying The Amazing Spider-Man (OK, no more puns).

According to Variety, the Oscar winner will star as at least one of the villains in Marc Webb's planned sequel to this year's triumphant return to the screen by Spidey. Although the news is still unconfirmed from movie execs, both Foxx and Webb have given some glaring hints that this is the case. Foxx tweeted on Thursday (Nov. 1) "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well." Meanwhile Webb said at a recent promotional event for The Amazing Spider-Man DVD release,: "I think Jamie Foxx is electrifying! You'll be hearing more on that shortly I'm sure."

Electro (real name Max Dillon) has been a mainstay in the Marvel comics' Spider Man series since his debut in February 1964 and although he has made countless appearances in TV versions of the web slinging adventures, this would mark his first appearance on the silver screen. Dillon gained his powers (control over electricity) when he was struck by lightning while working on a power cable, but don't go trying that yourselves.
