Who Should Play the Demented Industrialist?
The Green Goblin wasn't the first Spider-Man villain and he's not the most powerful, but the colorful character has become Spidey's signature nemesis over the years, appearing in just about every board game, video game, and animated series based upon the wall-crawler's exploits, as well as featuring prominently in Sam Raimi's trilogy (played with great aplomb by Willem Dafoe). Norman Osborn, the wealthy industrialist who first took on the mantle of the Green Goblin, did not figure prominently in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man, but director Marc Webb laid the groundwork for his big screen return, setting up Osborn's company, Oscorp, as the manufacturer of the biotech that inadvertently created both Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and also inserting a tag scene at the end that shows a mysterious figure that may or may not be Norman Osborn.
While most speculate that Electro will be the primary villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 because of the Electro-ish lightning seen in the credits, the return of Norman Osborn and the Green Goblin are inevitable, especially in light of the recent news that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) will likely have "a very small part" in ASM2 as Peter's other major love interest, Mary Jane Watson, and that Sony intends to "build to the classic 'Death of Gwen Stacy' story" that saw the Green Goblin killing Peter's high school sweetheart. Help us choose the new Green Goblin: Who do you think has the drive and determination to play a billionaire industrialist willing to experiment on himself to save his own life?

"Mommy was very bad."
Since the first trailer debuted for the upcoming 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall, the promotional footage revealed for the movie has tried not to reveal too much about the movie's plot. Outside of the synopsis, which said that Bond's (Daniel Craig) loyalty to M (Judi Dench) will be tested when her past comes back to haunt her, the clips and TV spots have avoided revealing how M's past "came back to haunt her." The latest trailer reveals just a bit more of the movie's plot, as it starts with Ralph Fiennes admonishing M for losing a vital source of information for Mi6. trailers, the latest trailers

One of the greatest coming-of-age stories in English literature, Great Expectations, is once again getting the big screen treatment, this time at the hands of Mike Newell, director of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Newell has brought along Harry Potter alums Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter to play Magwitch and Miss Havisham, with Jeremy Irvine as Pip, the poor orphan who becomes a gentleman with the help of an unknown benefactor, and Holiday Granger as Pip's eternal love and tormenter, Estella. The movie does not yet have a U.S. distribution deal, but from the looks of the elegant, moody international trailer that was just released, it should have no problem getting picked up after it debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.14.12 by BrentJS
Production on Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond movie, started back in November but is still ongoing. Collider has compiled a collection of new photos from the upcoming movie, which include first looks at the characters played by Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris.
Few plot details have been revealed but, according to the synopsis, Skyfall will see Bond's (Daniel Craig) loyalty to M (Judi Dench) tested when her past comes back to haunt her. Fiennes reportedly plays a "darkly complex" role in the movie, which may have something to do with M's troubles as Fiennes revealed in January that his character was a "government agent." Harris, meanwhile, has said that she will play "a field agent" named Eve, who apparently thinks she is on the same level as Bond. According to the new photos of the actors, both get into some kind of action, as all the characters are shown aiming their guns, though director Sam Mendes (Jarhead) is pictured in a more pastoral setting. see the new photos >> Posted 04.12.12 by Ryan
Ten years after the events of Clash of the Titans, Perseus (Sam Worthington) will once again be pulled into the power struggle of the gods in the upcoming sequel Wrath of the Titans.
This time, Perseus is forced into action after his father Zeus (Liam Neeson) is captured by Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Ares (Édgar Ramirez), who have switched loyalty to Kronos — who is Hades and Zeus' father, held captive with the Titans in the dungeon Tartarus. The first preview clip sees the start of Hades' treachery, as he surprises Zeus by attacking him. watch the clip and featurette >> Posted 03.23.12 by Ryan
Production on the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, began back in November and already the first official photo from the production has arrived online.
Daniel Craig returns as the infamous Agent 007 in a story that will see Bond's loyalty to M (Judi Dench) tested when her past comes back to haunt her. The new photo seems to have little to do with the movie's plot, as it shows Craig sitting poolside at the London Four Seasons. That is, unless Bond's preference on hotel pools is what tests his loyalty to M. see the photo and potential spoilers >> Posted 01.14.12 by Ryan
In 2003, actor Jeremy Renner co-starred in what could have been the beginning of a franchise with S.W.A.T. Almost a decade later and after appearing in independent and lower-budgeted fare like The Hurt Locker and The Town (both of which earned Renner Academy Award nominations), Renner is in four established or potential franchise movies — Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Avengers and The Bourne Legacy.
As Renner explained to ComingSoon, being a part of so many franchises was not something the actor anticipated.

I never went after a big franchise. I never went after a big action movie. They just sort of kind of manifested in a way... It started off by me saying, "Why not be in a movie that will play all over the world, but that still has something that I can do in it? Why not?" It was kind of impossible for me to say no [to these movies] as long as there was stuff for me to do character-wise, selfishly, it's just a bigger setting. A bigger stage.
Production on the 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise has been announced to start on November 7th. And, as rumored, the movie will be titled Skyfall.

Those who were hoping for a Face/Off reunion for Nicolas Cage and John Travolta had their hopes dashed when Cage dropped out of the wilderness action thriller Shrapnel in July, leaving Travolta and director John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) to find a replacement. Months later, McTiernan is out, the movie has a new title and Cage is being replaced by... Robert De Niro?
It's true. Deadline reports that De Niro is in for Cage, playing an American military veteran who is now living in a cabin in the woods. Enter Travolta as a friendly European tourist, who is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge (Travolta finally gets to show off his Serbian accent). Once the truth is discovered, a one-on-one battle ensues. "We’ve never seen these two great actors on screen together before, and we’re excited to see what comes of the combination," said producer Avi Lerner (Drive Angry, The Expendables). more cast members for Bond 23, Stallone Gets in The Tomb >> Posted 10.31.11 by Ryan
In a rather obvious attempt to bolster 4th quarter Blu-ray and DVD sales for the Harry Potter franchise, Warner Bros. announced yesterday that it will stop shipping all Harry Potter titles starting on December 29th of this year. The final movie in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, isn't even available until November 11, giving it only seven weeks on store shelves.
No reason for the moratorium was given in the official announcement, which leads us to believe that the Dark Lord, himself, must have been behind the decision.
