"This is bigger than you, Peter"
Earlier this week we learned that the first full trailer for next year’s superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be coming out today and, Ta da!, here it is! That promo banner that we saw previously, the one that hinted that the Green Goblin might appear in the film alongside fellow villains Electro and Rhino, gave us a clue as to how big Amazing 2 will be. The full trailer, which you can watch above, gives us even MORE clues that the movie (or, movies to come) will be ENORMOUS! Yes, Electro, Rhino and Green Goblin are featured in the trailer but watch carefully and see that the other villains who make up the nefarious Sinister Six are hinted at as well. OMG. My first reaction to watching this trailer is that I LOVE everything I see. My one tiny fear is that with 3 villains in one film, there’s a lot of story to be told and my concern is that with too much going on, the overall plot may feel messy/complicated/not fully fleshed out. Still, I was impressed with director Marc Webb‘s work on the first Amazing Spider-Man so I am going to trust him with this very exciting-looking sequel. Have a look at the trailer and tell me, does this movie not look AMAZING?!

Electro, Rhino ... and Green Goblin?
A big movie trailer for next spring’s superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released this week online and in movie theaters but a few days ago, an eagle-eyed fan came upon a promo banner for the film that seems to clue us in as to which villains Spider-Man will be battling in the sequel film. We already know that Spidey will take on Electro (played by Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (played by Paul Giamatti) but the banner seems to show that the web-slinging superhero will also face off against Green Goblin (played by Dane DeHaan, who also appears in the film as Peter Parker‘s best friend turned enemy Harry Osborn). In actuality, the revelation that Green Goblin may appear in Spider-Man 2 isn’t really a spoiler since we already know that he is one of Spider-Man‘s arch nemeses … but until now, we didn’t know for sure if the villain would appear in this second film or a future film in the franchise. Click below to see the photographic evidence of the existence of these Spider-Man villains and get excited, y’all. The big promo push for the film is just about to get underway. More »

Click below to see a few photos of Becks and Harry together and try not to fall desperately in love. More »
The TV Guide
What a difference a day makes. On Saturday, I was back home in Michigan suffering thru 30 degree temperatures … and yesterday, I was out and about here in SoCal enjoying temps in the high 70s. Tamar and her father Richard graciously invited me to go on a hike with them in Griffith Park and I gladly accepted. We spent a couple of hours climbing up to the summit of our trail and then back down to Earth again. It was just what I needed to get my bearings back again. The rest of the day was spent running around taking care of errands and then last night was spent on the couch catching up on some TV. My Sunday was a very nice one, I have to say. More »
Filming Production is Underway
Yesterday, when we learned that plans are in the works to release the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey in two versions — a tamer R rated version and an explicit NC-17 rated version — we also learned that filming production of the movie would begin today … well, it’s today and as you can see in the gallery of photos presented here, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are hard at work in Vancouver, British Columbia in their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively. As you can see, Jamie‘s Christian and Dakota‘s Anastasia are enjoying a pot of tea together, surely as a precursor to all the kinky S&M sex that they are going to have as the movie unfolds. Check out photos from Day 1 of the filming of Fifty Shades of Grey in the gallery and then click below to see a bonus photo shared from the movie set shared on Twitter by a producer of the film.

Last year I got my life changed by a few films– The Dark Knight Rises, Rust & Bone. But my absolute favorite nobody-ever-talk-to-me-I-couldn’t-wait-to-cop-it-on-DVD movie was Django Unchained. Tarantino has been one of my favorite directors for years now and I cannot wait to see how he follows up Django, for which he received the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. In a recent interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he revealed details– or at least one big detail– about his next project. Click inside for more!
