'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': First Look At Rhino?

Published by

paul giamatti rhino
Seeing as how The Amazing Spider-Man reboot of the Spider-Man cinematic franchise seems to be going out of its way to avoid using the same Big Bads that were featured in the Sam Raimi continuity (save for endless hints of an eventual Norman Osborn appearance), and director Marc Webb seems dead-set on using only the most ridiculous Spider-Man villains...

Spider-Man fans knew that Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin would eventually make his way into The Amazing Spider-Man universe, but not this soon. The folks over at Sony Pictures want Norman Osborn in their movie now and have cast a cool new actor for the role in their upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2

'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Paul Giamatti Is Set To Play Rhino (Yes, The Rhino)...

You’ve got to hand it to Mark Webb and company: in their efforts to truly distance their rebooted Spider-Man franchise from the Sam Raimi films, they’ve thus far steadfastly refused to use any of the same villains as Raimi (translation: all the good ones).  Instead, the Lizard was the underwhelming Big Bad for The Amazing Spider-Man; and last year it was...

Rock of Ages: Movie Review

RockOfAges_TCruise_02
It's always tricky trying to adapt a popular musical into a spectacular film. Sometimes you'll create a fun flick like Mamma Mia!, while other times you'll end up with a mess like Nine. Rock of Ages delivers a movie musical that can't carry a narrative tune. It has all the visual glitz and the glamour of the hit show...

Tom Cruise Rocks Out With His Rock of Ages Trailer

Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages
The hit musical Rock of Ages took many of the kitschy but lovably sincere rock anthems of the 1980's and Broadway-ized them. So who better to head up the film adaptation than Adam Shankman, who gave Hairspray a similar stage-to-screen treatment? The film - which stars Julianne Hough, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul...

The Ides of March: Review

George Clooney in The Ides of March
George Clooney is some kind of machine. He's in two movies this year, including The Ides of March, which he also co-wrote, directed and produced. And like everything he's directed it's good, but falls short of greatness. Ryan Gosling stars as Stephens Myers, a wunderkind political analyst who's one of the most important men behind Governor Morris (Clooney), but as the...

The Hangover gang's all back for another round of waking up and having no idea how bad things got the night before.For The Hangover Part II, the challenge - as a comedy - is to find a compelling narrative to return to a similar well. Most comic sequels end up redressing the original premise in one way or another to do it again, here the...

One of the lighter jewels to come out of this year's Sundance Film Festival was Win Win. The film stars Paul Giamatti and centers on his relationship with a teenager who has "man-strength."

Sundance 2011: Win Win Review

Well, Tom McCarthy's film definitely lives up to its title. So far this is one of my favorite films at the fest. It's fun, extremely well written and executed, brilliantly acted and leaves you with a smile on your face. Win Win is simple but not dumbed down. It's the King of it's class and had an entire audience of 1,000 laughing their heads off at...

Barney's Version: Drunk Like Father, Like Son
This week in theaters Barney's Version hits the big screen with the new love of my life, Paul Giamatti. He's one of those actors that can take any character and spin it into gold. Now give him a layered, drunken, asshole who is oddly charming and you got yourself a winner. Though this film is not without its problems, which may deter mainstream audiences, there is no...

This week in theaters prepare for Paul Giamatti and Rosamund Pike to blow you away in director Richard J. Lewis' adaptation of the novel, Barney's Version. Giamatti's stellar performance as a fickle, drunkard with a chip on his shoulder is the main reason to see this film, but Rosamund Pike is not far behind. Though she's not the typical actress you would cast to play...

Paul Giamatti Joins The Hangover 2

paul giamatti cast in ironclad
The last time we checked, Todd Phillips' sequel The Hangover II was well into production, therefore imagine how surprised we were to discover that they're still casting people. A few weeks ago, we learned that Liam Neeson would step in for a small cameo role, which made sense because he isn't playing a substantial character, but now Paul Giamatti is joining the cast...

Every year we get a film that stands out as "the amazing quirky comedy of the year." Films like Eternal Sunshine and Being John Malkovich immediately come to mind, although there are many more.
