Is Gwen Stacy Going to Die in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2?" 


This is what's getting fanboys and fangirls talking! New photos from the New York set of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" raised speculations about the fate of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in the upcoming 2014 sequel.

In the Marvel Comics comic book series The Amazing Spider-Man #121-122 (June-July 1973), there was a story arc called "The Night Gwen Stacy Died." During a fight between our Spidey (played in the film series by Andrew Garfield) and his nemesis, Green Goblin (aka Norman Osborn to be played by Chris Cooper in the sequel), the web-slinger's girlfriend perishes. And here's what got everyone go hhmmmm. The set picture of Stone below is an identical copy of what Gwen Stacy wore the night she died in the comic book. Right? Take a look:



An exact replica right? Right down to the ultra-chic leather boots?

We'll find out if we'll see the night Gwen Stacy dies on the big screen when Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" arrives in theaters on May 1 of 2014.

If you want to know more about the plot of the comic book arc about the death of Gwen Stacy, here's some excerpts from Wiki:

Prior to this arc, Norman Osborn had been the Green Goblin, but due to amnesia suspended his identity as the supervillain and forgot that Spider-Man and Peter Parker are the same person. Also, Harry Osborn, Parker's best friend and Norman's son, became addicted to drugs and was sequestered in the Osborn home for detoxification. Norman Osborn's parental grief, combined with financial pressure, triggers a breakdown resulting in Norman Osborn remembering his Goblin identity and again targeting Spider-Man and his loved ones for misery.

The Green Goblin abducts Peter's girlfriend, Gwen Stacy, and lures Spider-Man to a tower of either the Brooklyn Bridge (as depicted in the art) or the George Washington Bridge (as given in the text).[1][2] The Goblin and Spider-Man clash, and the Goblin hurls Stacy off the bridge. Spider-Man shoots a web strand at her legs and catches her. As he pulls her up, he thinks he has saved her. However, he quickly realizes she is dead. Unsure whether the whiplash from her sudden stop broke her neck or if the Goblin had broken it previously, he blames himself for her death. A note on the letters page of The Amazing Spider-Man #125 states: "It saddens us to say that the whiplash effect she underwent when Spidey's webbing stopped her so suddenly was, in fact, what killed her."[1]

The Green Goblin escapes, and Spider-Man cries over Stacy's corpse and swears revenge. The following issue, Spider-Man tracks the Green Goblin to a warehouse and beats him but cannot bring himself to kill him. The Goblin uses the opportunity to send his glider to impale Spider-Man from behind. Warned by his spider-sense, Spider-Man dodges, and the glider instead impales the Green Goblin, seemingly killing him. Later, a devastated Parker, back at home, encounters an equally shocked and saddened Mary Jane Watson, who has lost her close friend Stacy, and the two attempt to comfort each other in the wake of their loss.

The Fantastic Greta Gerwig Talks About FRANCES HA, Gives One of the Most Affecting Performances of the Year! 


Greta Gerwig gives one of the most affecting performances this year in Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha.” The actress also co-wrote the film with her “Greenberg” director. Frances is a contradiction of sorts – she lives in New York but doesn’t have an apartment; she is an apprentice for a dance company but she’s not really a dancer. She has not fulfilled her dreams yet but she’s hopeful and equally joyful. “Frances Ha” is a thoughtful character study on ambition and failure and eventually, redemption.

In this interview, we talked about:

What made her want to not just star in the film but co-wrote it as well
Is the character a big autogbiographical?
The film’s French New Wave feel
The fantastic soundtrack
The innocence of her character -- Frances
We can all identify with Frances

"Godzilla" Targets Hawaii 


Godzilla is visiting Hawaii for the latest movie incarnation of the beloved monster. According to HuffPost, Oahu will serve as the backdrop this summer for the new "Godzilla" movie from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. Filming will begin in July.

Godzilla himself will not be present though since he will be computer-generated.

The film has been in production since March 18 in Vancouver, British Columbia. British director Gareth Edwards ("Monsters") is at the helm from a script written by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callahan.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston star. But here's the big question -- will this new "Godzilla" be better than the 1998 version starring Matthew Broderick? That movie was horrible!

Oscar Contender? See New "The Butler" Poster! 


Lee Daniels, the guy who gave us the Oscar-winning "Precious," returns with a possible Academy Award contender with "The Butler." It tells the true-life story of Eugene Allen (Forest Whitaker), the White House's head butler who served eight presidents from 1952 to 1986.

It almost has a "Forrest Gump" vibe to it.

The Weinstein Company is releasing "The Butler" on August 16th. Oprah Winfrey co-stars as the butler's wife. But wait, there's more! This star-studded extravaganza also feature John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Robin Williams, Melissa Leo, James Marsden, Alan Rickman, Vanessa Redgrave, Lenny Kravitz, David Oleyowo, Minka Kelly, Liev Schreiber, Jesse Williams, Clarence Williams III and Mariah Carey. Wow!

Check Out the Funny "The Food Ditty" From Our "Final Destination 5" Friends -- Emma Bell and Ellen Wroe 


Previously, I interviewed the lovely ladies Emma Bell and Ellen Wroe for "Final Destination 5." This was in 2011.

Then, in 2012, both fun actresses created a Kickstarter campaign to create their passion -- a spoof of rap/jazz/R & B parody mocking the "dichotomous viewpoints of the American health food craze and obesity obstacle." They called it "The Food Ditty." Back then, they said, "It will be a quirky, quaint and quite idiosyncratic video much in the vein of Ellen's first spoof rap video, The Gatorade Rap."

Well, they were successful in raising $15,000 for their project, and they recently unveiled "The Food Ditty" on FunnyorDie.com! They were even featured on the home page of the comedy site! Yay!

Congrats to Emma and Ellen otherwise known as Smellen Wroe :happy
