Given he’s been in a public eye for three decades now, it’s hard to believe that Michael Keaton is press-shy. You can watch him chat to cameras in this exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at 'Birdman.'
What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? We posed that question to Emma Stone, Colin Firth, and Jacki Weaver, the stars of the writer-director’s latest film, Magic in the Moonlight. Find out which one went bananas for Bananas — and which one saidla-di-da to Annie Hall — in this exclusive clip.
Woody Allen is following up last year’s highly acclaimed Blue Jasmine with a new European jaunt, the romantic comedy Magic in the Moonlight, which is due in theaters July 25. In the 1920s-set comedy, Colin Firth plays Stanley, an Englishman posing as an Asian magician who attempts to debunk fake spiritualists. He travels to the south of France to unmask a supposed medium named Sophie (Emma Stone) as a good-looking fake — but ends up falling for her real-world charms instead. Then when it occurred to me it could be set in the south of France in the 1920s, all of a sudden it just felt good.” Meanwhile, it appears that Emma Stone is now firmly in Allen’s creative orbit.
HitFix sat down with Emma Stone to talk about her work in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2.' The discussion ranged from her thinking it was cool to be a villain to what the movie has to say about proactive women.
So the wallcrawler’s latest enemy was born of… electric eels? Sony has unveiled a pretty sweet extended look at the film that kicks off (or, rather, “swings in”) the 2014 summer movie season: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which looks to make director Marc Webb’s Spidey reboot into its own entity rather than something to be constantly compared to Sam Raimi’s original trilogy, which so far has had its comparative installments released exactly ten years prior to that of the new series. Having new-to-the-big-screen Electro as what appears to be the “main villain” of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” goes a long way in having this new Spidey establish its own identity, and the extended look sheds some (electrical) light on where this guy comes from. We also get to see Peter genuinely enjoying being Spider-Man, particularly in a sequence in which he rescues Oscorp employee Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx).
In our first sneak peak, we got to see a few frames of a maniacal Jamie Foxx as Electro. While we know he’ll be the lead evildoer, we’ve also been waiting with bated breath for a glimpse at the other two nasties in this installment: Paul Giamatti as the Rhino and Chris Cooper as the Green Goblin (the character previously inhabited by Willem Dafoe and, later, James Franco in the franchise’s last incarnation, the New Goblin). First, we get a telling voiceover from Spidey himself, Andrew Garfield, confessing, “Everyday I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make and it’s just a matter of time before I face those with more power than I can overcome.” [Related: Jamie Foxx on Getting His Super Swagger for ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’] That sounds about right, especially as we watch Electro fly through the air glowing and see the mask slam down on the massive Rhino.
