Emma Stone
Emma Stone attended "The Amazing Spider-Man" Los Angeles premiere on Thursday wearing an adorable white dress with red embroidered ribbons.

Emma has been on a worldwide tour promoting her superhero film. In England she wore a sexy low-cut beaded blouse and trousers, and in France she opted for a gothic look.

It must be so much fun to travel the globe with her boyfriend Andrew Garfield by her side - who happens to be playing Spider-Man.

The movie centers on Peter Parker (Garfield), who embraces his incredible destiny after uncovering one of his father's most carefully guarded secrets....

Andrew Garfield Says There Was A Huge Downside To Playing Spider-Man

June 28th, 2012 11:43pm EDT
Andrew Garfield
Andrew Garfield says playing the title role in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

The star kept a photo journal throughout the film's shoot so he could show fans that a day in the life of a comic book hero's Spandex super-suit was no walk in the park.

During an appearance on The Daily Show on Wednesday, Garfield showed off some behind-the-scenes photos of him standing next to a food cart but being unable to eat anything, and attempting to relieve himself in a restroom.

"There was a picture journal that I took throughout (filming) with a stills photog...

Andrew Garfield Used Adult Film Parody To Perfect Spider-Man Character

June 27th, 2012 10:58pm EDT
Andrew Garfield found inspiration for his Spider-Man character in odd places - he even checked a adult film parody featuring the comic book web-slinger.

The Amazing Spider-Man star admits he checked out Vivid Entertainment's Spider-ManXXX DVD while he was researching his role as Peter Parker for the upcoming blockbuster, and it appears director Axel Braun's racy 2011 film actually helped him.

Garfield tells, "I watched it a few times. I watched it more from an inspirational stand point than from a sexual standpoint. I think you can find inspiration from anywhere when it come...

Batman & Spider-Man Stars Had Trouble Breathing In Their Iconic Costumes

The Amazing Spider-Man
Playing a superhero is hard work - and potentially deadly. Andrew Garfield nearly suffocated on the set of "The Amazing Spider-Man" after he discovered his spandex suit wasn't waterproof.

The actor plays Peter Parker, who embraces his incredible destiny after uncovering one of his father's most carefully guarded secrets. Garfield nearly passed out while shooting an action sequence because he failed to learn proper breathing techniques required for the scene.

He told the New York Daily News, "I had to get wet, and I just kind of dove in and didn't realize that water on the mask made it imp...

A gothic-looking Emma Stone attended the French premiere of "The Amazing Spider-Man" held at Le Grand Rex Cinema yesterday.

The actress looked very dramatic in a black dress with a thigh-high slit up the leg and a low-cut neckline. The pale star accentuated her look with dark red lipstick. We think she would make an incredible vampire.

In the film, teenager Peter Parker (played by Stone's real-life boyfriend Andrew Garfield) embraces his incredible destiny after uncovering one of his father's most carefully guarded secrets. Stone plays Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy.

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...

Actor Andrew Garfield is looking forward to new challenges after his Broadway bow in 'Death of a Salesman' this Saturday.

Garfield was in the middle of filming forthcoming superhero movie 'The Amazing Spider-Man' when he was offered the chance to make his Broadway debut in the latest revival of the Arthur Miller classic, and he jumped at the chance.

Garfield hit the New York stage in February, opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman, and he immediately won over critics - even earning a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in a Featured Role at the upcoming event.

The Amazing Spider-Man
Last night, during America's Got Talent, Spider-Man got to show off his own talents in an extended four minute trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man. In the lengthy sneak peek, Spidey swings along the Brooklyn Bridge and tries to save civilians caught in the wake of destruction left by The Lizard.

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...

First Look: 'Amazing Spider-Man' Baddie Rhys Ifans Is the Lizard King!

May 3rd, 2012 11:39am EDT
It's one of the fundamental laws of modern movie making: A superhero film is only as good as its villain. "The Dark Knight'"s Joker? Great. "Thor'"s Loki? Good. "Green Lantern's" grumpy space smog? Yeah, not so much.

And "The Amazing Spider-Man'"s version of The Lizard? Well, now we finally have the first photos of him — and he looks pretty darn cool.

Quick refresher course in case you flunked out of Introduction to Spider-Man: The Lizard, who is played by Rhys Ifans, is actually benevolent scientist Dr. Curt Connors. In the film, he's a former comrade of Peter Parker's father, which mak...

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

April 16th, 2012 4:07pm EDT
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).

When wounds from his "nightlife" begin t...

Scarlett Johansson went commando while filming her latest movie - she dressed without underwear to stay cool in her tight costume while working on "The Avengers."

Scarlett reprises her role as the Black Widow in the highly anticipated film. Also returning are comic book characters Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. The actress admits she and her co-stars were extremely uncomfortable because their restrictive superhero outfits made them sweat.

She told, "It's like 800 degrees in my costume... and it's a unitard, and I have nothing underneath it! I'd say everybody has their ow...

Jennifer Lawrence Is Scared Of Getting Killed At Comic-Con

Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence is dreading attending the 2012 Comic-Con event to promote her highly-anticipated new movie "The Hunger Games" because she fears the franchise's "crazy" fanbase will trample her to death.

The beauty will join her movie co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson at the world's biggest comic book convention in San Diego, California in July, but Lawrence admits the frenzy surrounding the movie adaptations of Suzanne Collins' novels has already scared her off.

She tells People magazine, "I did indies (independent films) and I was in X-Men, but that was a franchise that I jus...

Rhys Ifans is about to yell "Timber!"

The "Amazing Spider-Man" villain will be trading the streets (and, presumably, the sewers) of New York City for the mountains of North Carolina in "Serena," according to Variety.

"Serena" takes place in 1929 North Carolina, where young newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton (Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence) look to build their timber empire. Their ruthless rise to power takes a sudden turn when Serena finds she can't bear children, which prompts her to embark on a deadly vendetta against her husband's illegitimate son.

The Amazing Spider-Man
The first full-length trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has been released. Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) juggles his newfound powers with his normal life - which includes girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and her father, the city's police chief who is out to capture a masked vigilante (Denis Leary).

The Amazing Spider-Man reboots the story, but it is to be seen how much of the film will describe Parker getting his powers. What is known is that the main villian will be The Lizard (Rhys Ifans).

The film joins a heavy Summer release schedule that includes The Avengers, Men in Black 3, S...

Most Anticipated Movies of 2012
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

January 4th, 2012 5:44pm EST
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 Amazing Spider-Man" co- stars Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have confirmed speculation they're an item offscreen by publicly holding hands during a day out in New York.

Actress Emma Stone had no time to personally tell her loved ones she had landed a role in the new Spider-Man movie as the casting news hit the internet just minutes after she was told.

The Easy A star auditioned for the role of Peter Parker's girlfriend Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man and film bosses rang Stone to offer her the role while she was filming The Help.

But Stone barely had time to register the call before her co-star Bryce Dallas Howard congratulated her after reading the news online.

Emma Stone Needs 'Help' With Her Fashion Picks

Emma Stone
Emma Stone, who played the darling Skeeter in summer's surprise hit film "The Help," showed up to the British premiere of the movie yesterday wearing a white polka dotted dress.

The dress, with split sleeves, a cut out in the bodice, and a slit up the leg, did nothing for her figure. And some of her other recent dress picks were just as bad (or worse).

We love Emma and can't wait to catch her in "The Amazing Spider-Man." We just think she needs a fashion intervention. What do you think? Check out recent photos of her below:

Here she is at the L.A. premiere of "The Help" in August. The ...

Denis Leary 'Rescue Me' Series Finale
The tenth anniversary of 9/11 has been something the characters on Rescue Me have anticipated with trepidation. Now that it’s here, the show concludes its final season. Denis Leary met with the Television Critics Association over the summer to discuss the final episode, the real life issues still being addressed, and his role in next summer’s blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man.

Leary began as a ranting stand-up comic with a huge presence on MTV. Now that he’s also had success as a comic and dramatic actor, he hasn’t lost any of his bite. Wrapping up his FX series seems both practical and s...

Welsh actor Rhys Ifans will not face charges over his recent arrest on suspicion of battery due to insufficient evidence.

The Amazing Spider-Man star caused a disturbance at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California last month when he allegedly became involved in an altercation with a female security guard.

Emma Stone in The Help
Emma Stone is having a very good year to say the least. In fact, the last couple of years have been increasingly successful for the actress who is pretty much everywhere you look. In 2011, she has appeared in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” as the hard-to-get love interest of Ryan Gosling as well as making a cameo in “Friends With Benefits” with Justin Timberlake. This week, her new film “The Help” hits theaters and will give audiences their first look at Stone in a more serious role in a film that deals with much more serious topics than her previous work.

The 22-year-old actress is pretty much th...

Actress Emma Stone has a back-up career in mind if ever big screen offers dry up - she'd love to try her hand at producing.

The 22 year old made her film debut in 2007's Superbad, but Stone, who plays the female lead in next year's much-anticipated The Amazing Spider-Man, is already considering life after acting.

She tells Teen Vogue magazine, "I have dreams of being a producer, being behind a camera, eating seven tacos for every meal, and making movies that affect people the way they affect me. I don't even need to be in them."

"I still really like acting, but I feel like if a day ca...
