Andrew Garfield, in Roksanda Ilincic, and Emma Stone kept the traveling going this morning by popping up in Madrid for their latest The Amazing Spider-Man press event. They linked up with costar Rhys Ifans and director Marc Webb for an a.m. photocall at the Villa Magna Hotel. The group is in Spain now after a stint in Germany, where they premiered Spider-Man in Berlin just last night. For the Berlin screening, Emma looked gorgeous in a white Andrew Gn dress and Andrew donned a plaid suit jacket from Gucci. They're about to wrap up a global tour for the new blockbuster. Andrew and Emma kicked things off in Asia, with events in Japan and South Korea, before moving on to Russia, the UK, France, and Germany. They're bringing it back to Gotham with a string of photo ops planned for next week, including a lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone smiled and waved to fans tonight at the Berlin premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. The pair were once again joined on the red carpet by costar Rhys Ifans and director Marc Webb. The team's been jetting around the globe in recent days, with only a few more stops to go before next week's LA premiere. We'll be LIVE from The Amazing Spider-Man red carpet on Thursday, June 28 — make sure to check it out that evening at 9:30 p.m. EDT/6:30 p.m. PDT.
Before Andrew and Emma take over the West Coast, they'll make a stop in NYC. They'll light the Empire State Building together and hit the talk show circuit with stops by The Late Show, The Today Show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and Live With Kelly. The real-life couple have two more weeks before the movie hits theaters on July 3, but according to Andrew playing Peter Parker has already been a dream come true.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield showed some PDA this morning at a press conference for The Amazing Spider-Man in Seoul. She accessorized a chic Burberry Prorsum ensemble with a bright teal necklace. The real-life couple have moved on to South Korea after spending the last few days in Japan, where Emma and Andrew premiered their Spider-Man and had a photocall. Their international press tour is well under way, and their travels will bring them back to the US ahead of the movie's July 3 opening. Before the film is out, take a look at brand-new pictures from The Amazing Spider-Man. Also, if you're a fan of either Emma or Andrew, make sure to show them some love in the PopSugar 100 before the contest ends this weekend.
Spider-Man 4 may be dead, but Sony is wasting no time in moving on to its replacement. Word is the studio has hired (500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb to orchestrate the first film in the new saga — as well as two additional movies based around the younger Peter Parker and his spandexed alter ego. The news may seem surprising for a relative newcomer to feature film, but Webb supposedly has two things in his favor: Columbia's chairman Amy Pascal likes him, and he comes with a much cheaper price tag than veteran Sam Raimi.
I was against a Spider-Man update before, but things just got interesting. Webb took a ton of lighthearted liberties with Summer, so I'm hoping his younger sensibility and creativity can breathe some life into the old franchise. Let's just hope we've seen the last of those Peter Parker dance sequences.
There's some music and dancing in their current indie romance, (500) Days of Summer, but Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the movie's director, Marc Webb, aren't stopping there. They've put together a little music video to Deschanel's own "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?" which she made with M. Ward as the musical duo She & Him. As you might expect from the adorable Deschanel/Gordon-Levitt pairing, the video is extremely cute, a little campy and sometimes sexy. Gordon-Levitt plays a bank robber who has a connection with the pretty teller who's handing him the money. Undeniably drawn to one another, the two swing and swirl and trot their way around the bank in their own private reverie.
It's so cute it practically makes my teeth ache. But, you know, in a good way. The video automatically starts after the jump. To watch and "awww!" just read more
After Mamma Mia!'s global earnings of $600 million last year, Universal may be looking toward Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber for its next movie musical success. The studio is apparently developing an adaptation of the musical Jesus Christ Superstar with an interesting directorial choice: 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb. Here's more:
The story . . . is generally is seen as decidedly a product of the '70s, with some characters played as hippies. And Webb, well, he's a product of the modern era, fashioning a career out of stylish but emotionally potent music videos for the likes of Green Day (and then, of course, the musical melancholy of Summer).
But Webb has long had an affinity for the project, a rock opera that (perhaps a little like parts of Summer) mixes spiritual uplift with the pop-music type. And just as [director Norman] Jewison's involvement brought a '70s sensibility to the original, Webb could bring a modern, hipstery take.
Well, 500 Days of Summer does feature some singing and choreographed dance. Could you see a "hipstery" version of Jesus Christ Superstar working on the big screen in this day and age?
