Some beautiful new high-res images from The Amazing Spider-Man have begun popping up online.  Some of these we’ve seen before, but there are a couple of new shots in there, as well.  I’m really loving the photo of Gwen Stacy cleaning Peter Parker’s wounds.  After the eight minutes of footage that was screened a SDCC, and with these new shots, I’ll say once again that the casting of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is pitch-perfect. Director Marc Webb also spoke to the LA Times about the decision to move away from the organic webshooters that were established in the previous…

“B5.” “Miss”. “D12.” “You son of a bitch, you sunk my Battleship. You totally cheated and looked at my board when I went to the bathroom didn’t you!!” Sound familiar at all? Well, all of your childhood fantasies are becoming a reality… or a nightmare, depending on how you look at it. Back in 2008, Hasbro and Universal Pictures announced a deal that would give Universal the sole rights to make a minimum of four movies over a six-year time period based on some of Hasbro’s most popular brand names (with the glaring exception of Transformers and G.I. Joe, which…

Fans of the HBO medieval fantasy drama Game of Thrones can rest easy – with huge ratings, Emmy nominations, and season 2 already in production, it’s safe to say that the show isn’t going anywhere for a long time.  The series, based on A Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R.
