A lot of news dropped over the last few days about upcoming projects. Such as the final trailer for the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” which features new footage of New York’s friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, played by Andrew Garfield, having his proverbial eight hands full with the two supporting villains, Rhino and the Green Goblin, and the central antagonist Electro. In this trailer, the history between Peter Parker and childhood friend Harry Osbourne is revealed and in the process, Peter starts digging into his parents’ history, in particular their history at OsCorp. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” is directed by Marc Webb, and stars Emma Stone, Dane Dehaan, Jamie Foxx, Sally Field, Paul Giamatti and Chris Cooper and set for release on May 2, 2014.
In 2004, Disney and Pixar released one of their most celebrated animated achievements in “The Incredibles,”a film about a family of superheroes who are forced into action to save the world from an old foe with a grudge, featuring the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson and Jason Lee. Screenwriter and director Brad Bird’s animated adventure was a big smash at the box office and took home two Academy Awards, including Best Animated Feature and for a while speculation has been circling that maybe a sequel could transpire and now, the speculation about a potential sequel can be put to rest. Ten years later, speculation has now led to confirmation: an “Incredibles” sequel is on the horizon. Unfortunately, that is all the news we’re getting. There is no confirmation on whether or not Brad Bird or the cast of the first installment will return nor has any technical information been released at this point, but there is confirmation that an “Incredibles 2” is about to get the green light. Stay tuned for updates.
J.J. Abrams has big shoes to fill as the director of the latest installment of the legendary “Star Wars” franchise, carrying on for George Lucas. So far, not much is known about “Star Wars Episode VII” aside from the director, the screenwriting team of Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, speculation about the cast from the original saga from Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, as well as potential newcomer Adam Driver, but one thing that is known is that the new installments will take place 30 years after the events from “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.” The other known certainty is that “Star Wars Episode VII” will be released on December 18, 2015.
