The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — $91.6M

The web-slingin’ wall-crawler hits the screens once again in this follow-up to Marc Webb’s 2012 reboot of the series. Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker, who squares off against the villainous Electro, played by Jamie Foxx.

As the film opens, we find Richard (Campbell Scott) and Mary Parker (Embeth Davitz) stealing away with some crucial Oscorp files while leaving young Peter in the care of Aunt May (Sally Field) and Uncle Ben. Flash forward about a decade, and Peter (Garfield) is swinging into… [more]

Pharrell’s ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Song Is, Well, It’s ‘Here’

Just when you thought Pharrell couldn’t be any more ubiquitous, he’s back already with a soundtrack follow-up to Happy called Here. Pharrell worked with composed Hans Zimmer and former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr on music for the film, but according to HipHop-N-More, this is a solo track from the musician/producer.

While Pharrell’s last couple huge hits have been fun, good-time efforts, this is not. This must be played when Spider-Man is having a slow dance at his senior prom, because that is the only place I can imagine hearing this song. Or maybe in a GPS commercial, because for some reason there’s the line “let’s get new GPSs.” This guy is such a spendthrift when it comes to large hats and global positioning systems.

Finally Explore Space as a Teenage Girl in the Amazing ‘Prospect’ Short

Featuring beautiful cinematography, lush environments, and masterful production design, Prospect is a sci-fi short that deserves the attention of fans of science fiction and short things. The dreamily-shot film focuses on a girl and her father trying to hit it rich prospecting on a rich, sunlit forest planet filled with bandits–sort of a Paper Moon of Endor by way of Where the Wild Things Are. It looks beautiful, wisely lives within its budgetary scope, and does well to remind us of the dangers of following our father’s get-rich-quick ideas. Please stop spending everything on scratch-offs, Dad.

(Thanks to Erin, and apologies to co-director Zeek Earl for not posting about this when he was trying to get earlier support for it. I thought I had, but it looks like I didn’t. Whups.)

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Trailer Has Arrived: Watch Here!

It’s predicted to be one of the biggest films of the year, and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” has just released a killer teaser trailer.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field, the Marvel flick will hit theaters on May 2, 2014.

Per the synopsis from Sony, “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. For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. 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, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend Harry Osborn returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.”

Hans Zimmer Creates Weirdly-Arbitrary Supergroup for ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′

Last we heard, Hans Zimmer wasn’t sure if he’d return to do the Batman-inclusive Man of Steel sequel. But there’s one thing he is very certain about: he will definitely form a bizarre supergroup for The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s score.

Sony Pictures has announced that the Oscar and Grammy-winning composer will for some reason team with Pharrell Williams, The Smiths‘ Johnny Marr, Incubus‘s Michael Einziger, and Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart for the Spider-Man sequel, which will apparently sound like jangly guitar, funk, and man, who knows what.

In a statement, Zimmer sort of explained the group’s unexpected collaboration, saying, “Marc and I were talking about Spider-Man, and as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man. That was the thing that united all of us – the great love for Spider-Man. With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, ‘Why not start a band?’ Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve.”

It is not clear how Webb or Zimmer will clear up the discrepancy with how Spider-Man is already established as sounding like campy U2.

When will the next trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man be released?

Question by Dr. X: When will the next trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man be released?
I keep hearing it might be around Christmas, and I just saw they released a new poster. Since it comes out in July can you estimate when a new trailer might come out? The Dark Knight’s trailer came out in December 07 when it was released in July 08, so do you think it’s reasonable that they would release an actual movie trailer this month?

Best answer:

Answer by Suicidal Ice Cream Truck Driver
I’d estimate around Boxing Day, that period of time. They usually amp up the promotional material 6-ish months before the release.
