The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, and his greatest challenge has just begun. New friends like Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) are coming back into his life, while old ones like Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) are moving on to a new stage in their life. However, Spider-Man’s life of fighting crime isn’t getting any easier, villains with bigger and badder powers are popping up and their connection all leads to OsCorp. Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, and Chris Cooper also star. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters on May 2, 2014.
Scarlett Johansson‘s exclusion from being nominated for a Golden Globe is absolutely inexcusable. But this is the HFPA’s we are talking about, so it really doesn’t come as a surprise. The reason for her ineligibility: she only voices the character and does not make a physical appearance. In Spike Jonze‘s Her, Johansson plays a Siri like AI application, whose owner (Joaquin Phoenix) starts to develop feelings for. Rooney Mara also stars. WB Studios will release Her into theaters on December 18.
Written and directed by Richard Shepard, Dom Hemingway stars Jude Law as a recently released safe cracker looking to collect reparations and dues for keeping his mouth shut after being in prison for 12 years. But after partying and boozing it up, he is drawn back into the criminal world, all the while trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter. Fox Searchlight will release Dom Hemingway on April 4, 2014.
300: Rise Of An Empire
Honestly, the second trailer for 300: Rise Of An Empire, the sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300, doesn’t look any different from its predecessor. The visuals are pretty much the same, and the dialogue pretty much mirrors the last film. The film takes place after the events of the last film where Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) rallies together his fellow Greeks to fight the Perisans and their fearless female leader Artemesia (Eva Green). 300 Rise Of An Empire hits theaters on March 7, 2014.
In the erotic thriller Nurse 3D, nurse Abby Russell (Paz de la Huerta) lovingly attends to the patients at All Saints Memorial Hospital; by night, Abby prowls nightclubs, luring unfaithful men into dangerous liaisons. After Danni, a young, sensitive nurse, joins the hospital staff, Abby pursues her friendship. But when the friendship turns to obsession, Danni spurns Abby, unleashing Abby’s fury and a rampage of terror. Lionsgate releases the film on February 7th, 2014.
