Rhys Ifans
Rhys Ifans drew on his knowledge of drug addicts to portray the villain in comic book blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man.

In the superhero prequel, the Welsh star takes on the part of Dr. Curt Connors, an amputee scientist who creates a serum using reptile DNA in a bid to gain the lizard-like ability to re-grow limbs. Ifans insists he had an unusual influence for his role, taking inspiration from the dependency crystal meth users experience.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "He is a very intelligent scientist who genuinely wants to benefit and help millions of humans - limbless humans in hi...

New 'Amazing Spider-Man' Trailer Digs Into Mythology

May 4th, 2012 1:03pm EDT
The Amazing Spider-Man
The new Amazing Spider-Man trailer may create more questions instead of answering them, thanks to a focus on the mythology behind Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) becoming Spider-Man.

Almost all of us know the classic take on how Peter got his powers - he was bitten by a radioactive spider. However, over the last few decades, writers have created their own spin on why he was bitten by a radioactive spider. For example, one of the greatest story arcs ("Coming Home"), it is suggested that the spider that gave Peter his powers (like a vampire or a werewolf would) and the radiation was simply go...

Can 'Avengers,' 'Dark Knight Rises,' And 'Amazing Spider-Man' Make 2012 The Best Movie Summer Ever?

May 2nd, 2012 2:07pm EDT
The Avengers
The movie industry earned $4.3 billion last summer at the U.S. box office to make it the best summer ever (I thought piracy was killing the industry?) but don't expect the mark to last for long. There's a team of superhero movies coming along, and each one could break records.

The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers look to score over $400 million each and should be boosted with IMAX and 3D premiums. Thus far, The Avengers have already made $218 million overseas. There's also PIXAR's Brave and The Amazing Spider-Man - Pixar is always good for a cash infusion, but we'll have to wait and see ...

Japanese 'Amazing Spider-Man' Trailer Gives Darker Preview

The Amazing Spider-Man
A new Japanese trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has hit the Internet and created buzz in a movie-going community hungry for anything "Spidey."

In the two-minute clip (don't worry; it' in English with Japanese subtitles), an evolving (pun!) relationship is shown between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans). When it first appears that Connors may have some insight into what Parker's father was studying, he dives in head-first - and ends up creating one of his most deadly adversaries, The Lizard (a mutated Dr. Connors).

If you’re family is like mine, you probably got one for Christmas. I have an aunt who has given on to me every year since I was seven. Each time I open the wrapping paper and feign surprise, as if my present could have been anything else. The first few times she gave me this turd of a gift, I hung it dutifully on my wall for the entire year. Each time I looked at it, I would wonder how Chocolate Labradors or Monster Trucks define me as a person (News Flash: They don’t). Now, as soon as she leaves the room, I throw my gift right in the trash without even a modicum of guilt. Still don’t know ...

'Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark' Breaks Broadway Records With Post-Christmas Sales Week

Broadway's much-maligned Spider-Man musical closed out 2012 in style by setting new box office records for New York theater.

The spectacular, which opened to scathing reviews last year following multiple delays and safety issues, grabbed the record for the highest single-week gross of any show in Broadway history on Tuesday thanks to post-Christmas ticket sales of over $2.9 million.

The previous record holder, Wicked, took in $2.2 million a year ago and ironically The Wizard Of Oz spin-off had another huge end to the year, raking in over $2.7 million from nine shows last week.

The film, which is still almost a year off, is a re-boot of the Spider-Man franchise that began in 2002 and ended in 2010 when director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire quit over issues with the script of then-planned Spider-Man 4.

So the studio forged ahead with a new telling of the story, which, according to this teaser, is basically the same story we got back in 2002 - only this time there's more focus on Spidey honin...
