Break out the Kleenex.
Those that have read Yann Martel’s international best seller know that the big screen adaptation of Life of Pi has the potential to be as harrowing of an inspirational experience as its literary counterpart. The new, international trailer only seems to offer more evidence that director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) has delivered on that promise. Life of Pi is set to premiere this weekend at the New York Film Festival before opening in wide release in November. While made up of footage largely taken from the movie's first trailer, the latest trailer starts with the adult Pi (Irrfan Khan), who is interviewed by a young writer (Rafe Spall, replacing Tobey Maguire) and begins to narrate his own story of his younger self (played by Suraj Sharma), who survives a disaster at sea only to find himself sharing a lifeboat with a vicious Bengal tiger. The latest trailer may be a bit more emotionally charged than the first, however, especially for those that can't help but be swooned by Coldplay's "Paradise" playing in the background. every trailer a waterfall

Since Indian actor Irrfan Khan was added to the cast of Sony-Columbia's Spider-Man reboot last December in the role of villainous character Van Atter, speculation has followed, as outlets try to solve the mystery of who, or what, Van Atter is.
Shortly after the casting was announced, reports had Khan in the role of obscure comic book character "Nels Van Adder," who appeared once in 1997's Peter Parker, Spider-Man #1 and is referred to as the "Proto-Goblin." In the comic, "Van Adder" is a research assistant who becomes a test subject for Norman Osborn, the eventual Green Goblin. In the reboot, however, Rhys Ifans is supposedly set to star as Dr. Curt Conners, aka the Lizard. Khan was no help at the time, revealing that he thought his role "was not in the comics or perhaps a minor character," which simultaneously refutes the Proto-Goblin claim while also supporting it.
In a recent interview with Indian Express, Khan seemingly punched even more holes in the Proto-Goblin theory when he explained why he wasn't initially interested in joining Spider-Man. No masks or creatures for khan >> Posted 02.08.11 by Ryan
Production began this week on director Marc Webb's still-untitled Spider-Man reboot, and the first set of production photos are already online. With shooting underway, casting announcements continue to trickle out: Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson joined the cast last week as Peter Parker's parents and Irrfan Khan joined as a villainous character named Van Atter.
Two more casting announcements have popped up this week. First, The Wrap reports that Chris Zylka (Kaboom) has been cast as Flash Thompson, the football player who ruins Parker's high school life with this public taunting of "Puny Parker." Later on in the comic book series, Parker and Thompson become friends, but as the reboot deals with Parker's high school days and origin as Spider-Man, Thompson will likely stay in bully mode. who's the other villain? >> Posted 12.11.10 by Ryan
Director Marc Webb's as-yet-untitled new Spider-Man movie is expected to go into production this week, but new cast members are still being added to the roster. According to THR, Campbell Scott recently joined the cast, and Annie Parisse, Julianne Nicholson and Irrfan Khan are all in various stages of discussions to join the rebooted franchise. What's really interesting about this news is the set of characters that the actors are supposedly going to be playing, including Peter Paker's (to be played by Andrew Garfield) never-before-seen-on-screen parents and a new villain. read more about the new additions to Spider-Man >> Posted 12.05.10 by BrentJS
