Jamie Foxx As Electro In Spider-Man Sequel?

In the final, post-credit scene of The Amazing Spider-Man, Doctor Curt Connors comes face to face with a shadowy figure who may become the sequel's villain. But who could that villain be, and is Jamie Foxx the man to play him? Casting spoilers ahead!

According to Variety, Jamie Foxx is deep in negotiations to play a super-villain in the next Spider flick, due out in May of 2014. Which villain will he be playing? All signs seem to point towards the super-charged Electro. Electro, as his name suggests, has the power to control electricity, a gift he obtained by being struck by lightning.

In addition to Variety's sources, Jamie Foxx himself just so happened to tweet,

 "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well," which is pretty darn telling.
Some questions remain. Namely, what origin will this version of Electro have and is the shadowy figure we saw at the end of Amazing, in fact, Electro? There was an awful lot of lightning going down in that …

Wreck It Ralph Review. Is It Worth Your Quarters?

Wreck It Ralph Review By: MattInRC
Does Wreck It Ralph beat up the 2012 animated competition, or should you save your quarters for a better game?


For today's kids, video games are a integral part of their lives, existing as both entertainment as well as the center of their digital lives. But for those of us old enough to remember, video games were mostly limited to arcades, creating a sometimes frenzied environment where kids would line up with their quarters to take a shot at the newest game. Between the ages of 10-15, I must have single-handedly kept my local arcade open, that is until the Atari 2600 was released. I watched as the industry changed, as home consoles took over, grinding most arcades to dust while generating an excitement for gaming that continues today. Whether home consoles have made us better players today is debatable, but there's no denying the importance that arcades once played. Wreck It Ralph tries to conjure up fond memories of quarter games and piz…

John Cusack Joins The Cell

As the nights draw in and the creepiness levels rise, John Cusack’s mind is turning to horror. Just yesterday, word arrived that he was planning to star in scare-fest Due Process. Now he’s also going back into Stephen King territory for an adaptation of Cell.

The book, which hit shelves in 2006, finds struggling graphic novel artist Clayton Riddell searching for his missing wife and son after a mysterious pulse from every mobile phone starts turning people into zombie-like psychopaths.

King is on screenwriting duty for this one, working alongside The Last House On The Left’s Adam Alleca. There’s no director attached yet, but we expect one to be locked in soon enough.

This is not the first time someone has tried to bring the novel to the screen: Eli Roth jumped on the idea when it was first published, but ditched it to focus on his own original material. Then writer John Harrison began to develop it for TV. Now, however, it will be back in movie form.

Cusack previously stalked into Ki…

George Lucas Does An Amazing Thing. To Donate $4 Billion To Fund Education

By the end of the year, the $4.05 billion sale of Lucasfilm to Disney should be finalized. And since George Lucas owns 100 percent of his company - which has little to no debt - all that money goes to him.

After that, Lucas plans to quickly put the bulk of the money into a foundation which will primarily focus on educational issues, a spokesperson for Lucasfilm tells THR.

George Lucas has expressed his intention, in the event the deal closes, to donate the majority of the proceeds to his philanthropic endeavors.” 
It's not yet clear which foundation will get the proceeds. Lucas is currently the chairman of Edutopia, which is part of the George Lucas Educational Foundation. He could put money into that or create a new foundation which would be funded from the sale.

The Foundation was the vehicle Lucas used to make a $175 million donation to his alma mater USC in 2006. He has also given to many other causes over the years including the Film Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer and the M…

SKYFALL is the twenty-third spy film in the Eon Productions James Bond series, produced for MGM, Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

New G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer. Can You See The Changes?

Remember that G.I. Joe sequel that was supposed to come out seemingly forever ago? Well, it's back and we've got the latest trailer just for you. Let's find out what's changed about the delayed film together, shall we?

The official answer as to why Joe went from a 2012 summer release to the far-less-exciting March of 2013 is "increased 3D effects." Okay, yes, we can see how 3D is a good thing. Explosions, ninjas, Bruce Willis... all of the above could be made better if they're flying off the screen, but is that really all this is about?

Considering Channing Tatum (who was supposed to be killed off for the sequel) appears right at the start of the trailer, we're gonna go ahead and say that his huge increase in popularity after 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike had a lot to do with the release date change.

Jennifer Garner Joins Dallas Buyers Club

Jennifer Garner is in talks to star in the long-gestating drama Dallas Buyers Club alongside Matthew McConaughey. The plot centers on a man who was given six months to live after contracting AIDS in 1986; he lived another six years by illegally smuggling medicine into the U.S., making sure a lot of other sufferers got them too. The spirit of the drama paints a picture at the time of powerful and unyielding bureaucrats at the Food and Drug Administration.

We’re hearing that the production is also close to casting the key role of a cross-dresser, but nothing’s been sealed.

More Missions For Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise chats about all of his upcoming films, including Jack Reacher, Van Helsing, and the long-mooted Top Gun 2. And we also pressed him on the possibility of another Mission: Impossible installment, not least as Ghost Protocol was Cruise’s biggest hit to date.

On the fourquel’s success, Cruise told us, “Seeing an audience respond… to have that experience is really wonderful.

“I started Mission: Impossible hoping I could make many of them. It’s a character that I can grow with. At that time it was the most expensive film in the history of Paramount Pictures, and the first film I was producing.

“It’s been pretty exciting. I’ll make a bunch of those. I’ll make as many as people want to see... because they’re very challenging, and so much fun to make.”

Any ideas for the plot and set-pieces? “We’re already working on different images. Talking conceptually. I love travelling around promoting different movies because I’m always looking at different places, and I always walk around to s…

THE BAY Opens On VOD & iTunes On Friday

THE BAY opens in theaters nationwide and through video-on-demand and iTunes this Friday, November 2!   The film was directed by Barry Levinson.

Two million fish washed ashore. One thousand blackbirds dropped from the sky. On July 4, 2009 a deadly menace swept through the quaint seaside town of Claridge, Maryland, but the harrowing story of what happened that Independence Day has never been told – until now.

From Oscar®-winning* director Barry Levinson and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this nerve-shredding tale of a small town plunged into absolute terror. The authorities believed they had buried the truth about the tragedy that claimed over 700 human lives. Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing the cover-up and an unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak.

Told from the perspective of those who were there and saw what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours though people's iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, webcams, …

New Red Dawn Trailer. Fight For Your Freedom

It may be hard to believe, but after a few years sitting on the shelf, it's finally (almost) here. The Red Dawn reboot opens Nov. 21—and a new trailer shows off the crazy invasion action that's coming soon.

Starring a who's who of eventual stars (Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson), the remake finds the U.S. occupied by a foreign army. Our only hope? A ragtag group of teens and 20-somethings out to cause as much trouble as possible.

The film was finished before Hemsworth became a household name (among comic fans, anyway) for his role as Thor, and his star power should carry the remake of the 1980s classic to at least a solid opening.

A new trailer has been released setting up the premise, including a few snippets of new action footage. Despite the fact that MGM's financial woes kept it in purgatory for a few years, it still looks pretty good.

Today we felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in disbelief… And were silenced by hard truth. Yes, the Walt Disney corporate Death Star has gone on another acquisition mission, buying up Lucasfilm for the handsome sum of kee oto* But the even bigger news to come out of the announcement? The companies are planning a new entry in the Star Wars franchise for 2015.

The jokes, of course, came almost as fast as the questions of whether it was actually true. But it is, and George Lucas himself was part of the announcement.

“For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said Lucas, chairman and CEO of Lucasfilm, in a statement. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime.

The Amazing Spider-Man Deleted Footage.

We already knew that a lot of stuff was left on the cutting-room floor when director Marc Webb put together the final cut of The Amazing Spider-Man. Now we have a good look at 17+ minutes of footage that got axed. So what's there?

A pretty good bit of content, including a few alternate scenes that could've shifted the tone had they been included.

Though these scenes do add some context and might've helped with the pacing, it doesn't look like we lost a ton with these being relegated to Blu-ray extras.

The footage has leaked, and here's a scene breakdown via Comic Book Movie:

Watch the footage after the Jump..

THE WOLVERINE Teaser Poster And Q&A With Jackman

We have the first teaser poster for the upcoming film THE WOLVERINE. As an added bonus I have the Q&A that took place today with director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman.

"Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all," reveals Mangold. "Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him."

Now that's intriguing. We're pretty sure that there are prequel elements to The Wolverine - our picture alone, if you know your Wolverine lore, would suggest it, while on-set pics suggest that some sequences take place in World War II. Also, recent rumours hint at a cameo from Famke Janssen as Logan's unrequited love Jean Grey, last seen being mercy-killed by Logan at the end of X-Men: The Last Stand.

Watch the video after the Jump...

But, according to Mangold, the bulk of the action - which takes Logan to Tokyo, where he falls for Tao Okamoto's mysterious Mariko and becomes…

Two Jamie's Join Sin City 2

Jaime King and Jamie Chung have boarded Sin City 2, which began shooting on Monday in Austin.

Robert Rodriguez is directing the movie with Frank Miller, the comic book icon who created the Sin City comics that were published by Dark Horse in the 1990s. Rodriguez and Miller teamed up for the stylish 2005 hit adaptation.

Rodriguez and Miller wrote the script for the new movie, which is a combination of comics storylines and a new one written specifically by Miller for the movie. One of the storylines being adapted is A Dame to Kill For, originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava.

Many of the original castmembers are returning for the sequel, including Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. (Rourke’s character Marv was killed by electrocution in the first movie but the Dame’s story takes place before and after that film’s events.)

King played the golden-haired prostitute Goldie in …
