As the by-now-numerous trailers for Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have shown, Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker — in a break from tradition — really enjoys being Spider-Man. If that makes you a little jealous that you’re not Spider-Man, well, there’s a easy fix for that.
Endless Swing is a free video game available on the Amazing Spider-Man movie website in which the player guides the web-slinger around New York City while trying to collect giant floating spider icons — think Sonic the Hedgehog, the author writes while dating himself badly — before running out of web fluid and falling to an offscreen doom.
It’s a simple enough game, accompanied by the soundtrack from the movie and Garfield dialogue, and another strand of an increasingly large web of online promotion for Marc Webb’s second outing with Sony’s premiere superhero franchise. With a little over two months left before the movie is released, the mind boggles trying to imagine what’s next. Gwen Stacy as iTunes Radio DJ, perhaps? Harry Osborn live-tweeting the Oscars?
Watch the new almost-four-minute long trailer of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ debuted during the Super Bowl 2014.
DreamWorks Animation’s “The Croods” took home three awards at the 41st Annual Annie Awards, for Best Animated Effects (Jeff Budsberg, Andre Le Blanc, Louis Flores and Jason Mayer), Character Design (Carter Goodrich, Takao Noguchi and Shane Prigmore) and Character Animation (Jakob Jensen) in an Animated Feature Production.
Congratulations for the well-deserved wins!
Emma is set to present at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan 12. “The Croods” is nominated for “Best Animated Feature Film”.
EW.COM – Three more boldfaced names have been added to Sunday’s Golden Globes lineup: Sandra Bullock, Emma Stone, and Zoe Saldana.
Bullock, a current nominee for her work in Gravity, has one Globe under her belt already (for The Blind Side) and four additional nominations total. The other two also have connections to the awards show: Stone was nominated for a Best Actress in a Comedy Globe in 2011 for Easy A, while Saldana was one of three actors who announced this year’s nominees last month.
Bullock, Stone, and Saldana join a star-studded lineup of previously announced presenters including Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Downey Jr., Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Julie Bowen, Laura Dern, Colin Farrell, Mila Kunis, Uma Thurman, Reese Witherspoon, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick — whose daughter, Sosie Bacon, is this year’s Miss Golden Globe — and, of course, hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who are more than ready to helm Hollywood’s party of the year.
The Globes air 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 12, on NBC.

EW.COM – Your friendly neighborhood Spider-man kicks off the new year with a new teaser of The Amazing Spider-man 2, which debuted in Times Square during the New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Comics legend — and Spider-man co-creator — Stan Lee introduces the clip, which features Spider-man (Andrew Garfield) battling a plethora of villains including Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and a mysterious figure on a familiar-looking hover board.
Directed by Marc Webb, the superhero sequel stars Garfield as the web-slinger and young New Yorker Peter Parker and Emma Stone as scientist and Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters May 2, 2014. Until then, check out the new footage below.
Sony Pictures has released its first teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 today, and you can see the first stamp of Dwight Caines, the president of Theatrical Marketing for Sony Pictures. who hatched this campaign with his Sony Pictures International counterpart Nigel Clark. Caines ran digital marketing for Sony worldwide, and this first trailer has been launched simultaneously online in a massive global play.
Versions of it were made more than 12 languages, including Russian and three different Chinese dialects. The trailer launched simultaneously on every Sony platform down to the Times Square billboard, and reams of other sites around the world. This is likely to become more common on event pictures, as all the studios embrace look at event pictures as global commerce instead of separate campaigns for domestic and international.
The sequel brings back Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. This time around, the webslinger goes up against a coterie of villains headed by Jamie Foxx‘s Electro. Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Sally Field and Denis Leary also star in the Marc Webb-directed movie.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starts its international rollout on April 16, 2014 and debuts in the U.S. on May 2, 2014.
Sony Pictures announced this morning via their Spider-Man Facebook page that the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will debut on December 5th. Check back here on that date to see Spider-Man (and Gwen) swing back into action!

Aykroyd starred in both previous Ghostbusters movies, about a group of parapsychologists who investigate and capture ghosts in New York City.
Stone is working on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, while Hill can next be seen in The Wolf of Wall Street.
