In our latest round of new movie trailers, Spider-Man battles a new trio of villains, yet still finds time to ponder why he even bothers. Meanwhile, Channing Tatum is back with another attempt to become the next big action hero.
‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’
Comic book fans everywhere are giddy with excitement to see a live-action Spider-Man going to battle against Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, and Russian thug The Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti. The former is missing his recognizable green and yellow jumpsuit, but Foxx’s version looks and feels darker and more sinister. We’re never given a good look at Giamatti, except for the tip of his horn, but it’s enough to assume that his entire suit will be made of steel. Dane DeHaan doesn’t strike me as a good Harry Osborn, but his face, voice and mannerisms will probably make for an awesome Green Goblin. What I like best is the brief glimpse of other villains to come, like Doctor Octopus and Vulture. I’m excited for this one.
Whoever made the decision to let Channing Tatum grow a goatee in a movie should never be allowed to work in Hollywood again. I don’t know if I’m supposed to pay attention to his face or that pile of dried turd hanging from his chin. The fact that it distracts from his awful acting is a positive, I suppose. As for the rest of this trailer, it looks promising. With the Wachowskis behind the concept and production, the movie could be a good deal of fun. I’m a little torn and somewhat hesitant, but at the moment, I’m leaning towards watching this in theaters.
From the world of independent sci-fi, director Caradog W. James’s android thriller looks pretty promising as well, especially with good word-of-mouth from the film festival circuit. From the preview, you can tell the movie was made on a limited budget, yet the concept and visuals appear top-notch. I have a feeling that this will likely only play in select areas, so that means I’ll wait to check it out on Blu-ray.
