Entries in Marc Webb (11)


First clip of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' shows a flustered Peter Parker

The first true trailer and information about Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man reboot was released last week, but today we got a look at a clip from the film. Unlike the trailer, this is a scene that plays in its entirety. Here, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is attempting to enter Gwen Stacy’s building to go to dinner, but is stopped by a doorman. Unlike Tobey Maguire’s more distant Parker, this one seems a lot more timid and flustered. His reactions to the situation are quite natural and if I were the doorman, I might be suspicious as well.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' trailer & sneak preview: How it's different from Raimi's trilogy


The Amazing Spider-Man is undoubtedly one of the biggest movies coming out this year, but there are a lot of people who still don’t quite know how it ties in with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Is it a remake? A reboot? A sequel? Well, from what we’re hearing about the sneak preview, new shots, and Director Mark Webb (500 Days of Summer) himself, it sounds like the new film is a completely different take on Spider-Man. The new trailer confirms it.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' teaser poster - Marc Webb promises us The Untold Story 

It’s hard to know what to think of Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. Webb directed the fantastic 500 Days of Summer, starring Zoey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but the first-person perspective of the trailer was somewhat strange, to say the least. Hopefully the film won’t end up being a drama mixed with a theme park ride, but we’ll have to wait and see. It’s looking like a darker film than the Sam Raimi trilogy, if nothing else. A tagline of “The untold story” also sounds interesting. Hopefully it will be something new.

First look at The Amazing Spider-Man's mask

Filmonic has posted a first look at Spider-Man's mask and suit in The Amazing Spider-Man, the upcoming reboot of the series previously starring Toby Maguire. As is usually the case with Hollywood, the new design seems to have a grittier look to it with more detail than the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. It all looks a bit more rubbery, but it's cool how you can make out Peter Parker's eyes inside the mask, if you look hard enough. The previous mask (see below) looked a lot more spandex-ey. The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters on July 3, 2012 and is being directed by Marc Webb, who made one of my favorite films, 500 Days of Summer

We've got a Spider-Man! It's...Andrew Garfield? (Media Round-Up)

Life's opportunities cannot be planned. Andrew Garfield learned that the other day when he was picked as the next Spider-Man and then paraded onto a stage surrounded by reporters a mere half hour later. The biggest news, however, is that the blogosphere has no opinion of the young British actor. Is he right for the role of Peter Parker? Can he fill Tobey Maguire's shoes? Is he too similar? Is he too boring? No one has much of an opinion, it seems. Odd.

Why rumors suck: Is Logan Lerman '100% locked' to play Peter Parker, or not?

Wow. Sometimes these rumors play themselves out like a Katy Perry song. Over the weekend HitFlix reported that Logan Lerman, who recently played Percy Jackson, was the clear frontrunner and "almost 100%" confirmed as the next Peter Parker in Sony's upcoming Spider-Man film, a restart of the franchise to be directed by 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb.

Then Deadline Hollywood talked to their Sony source who says that Logan Lerman is "100% not going to be Spidey." In reaction, Drew McWeeny from HitFlix updated his post, acknowledging Deadline's article but standing behind his own.

Sam Raimi, Tobey Maguire out of SPIDER-MAN 4; Sony plans a complete Spider-Man reboot for 2012

Well this is sudden. Sam Raimi has left Spider-Man 4, citing an inability to finish the movie and retain his creative integrity by Sony's May 5, 2011 release date. This comes on the heels of Raimi's vocal outrage about the poor quality of the Spidey 4 script less than one week ago. Raimi and Sony executives hadn't been seeing eye to eye for a while. Executives wanted Anne Hathaway in the picture as Black Cat and weren't happy about Raimi's insistence that John Malkovich play the villain (I'm guessing it was The Vulture). Tobey Maquire and Kirsten Dunst are out as well. More details on this and the new script after the jump.

"500 Days of Summer" director to take on "Just Another Love Story"

Marc Webb is in a good place right now. 500 Days of Summer has done remarkably well, pulling in almost $37 million in worldwide box office receipts (on a small budget), and is one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year. Now new director is in talks to remake another love story (or not): Just Another Love Story, a 2008 Danish film by Ole Bornedal. THR reports the film is about “a crime photographer who pretends to be the boyfriend of an amnesiac, only to face the wrath of the actual boyfriend when he finds out about the deception.” Sounds interesting. I haven’t seen the original, though it won some acclaim at Sundance.

Review - 500 Days of Summer

Rarely have I left a film so happy and fulfilled. 500 Days of Summer tells a story that happens long after most romantic comedies finish their third act and spool the credits. It starts at the end of a relationship (Day 299 to be exact) and skips back and forth through time, picking up its pieces along the way. This is an honest, very funny movie about accepting, coping, and moving on when a relationship doesn't work; and 99% of the time, they don't.

500 Days of Summer music video is here (Video)

I finally got to see 500 Days of Summer, and it was great. However, for those of you who haven’t (and have) here’s a new music video Fox Searchlight has released to promote the movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel star, with Marc Webb directing. The song is “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?” from Zooey’s band Him and Her. Enjoy!
