Photo Mania: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Maleficent, and More
What day is it? Huuuump Day. Treating yourself with a little Photo Mania, won’t ya? Below you can check out the latest photos for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Maleficent, Fast & Furious 7, Out of the Furnace, Need for Speed, Grudge Match, and Only Lovers Left Alive. Be sure to stick around for the full galleries.
For the second week in a row, I’ve attached photos for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. As one of next year’s biggest films, we can probably expect a new trailer soon. Until then, check out the latest two photos. The movie stars Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man with Jamie Foxx (Horrible Bosses) taking over the villain duties. Marc Webb returns as director and his latest movie releases May 2, 2014. (Source: Collider)
The three-peating Maleficent added photos to the recently released first trailer and poster. All three photos are above and they show off stars Angelina Jolie (as the title character, Maleficent) and Elle Fanning (Super 8). Robert Stromberg is the director and people hoping for another Disney movie (after, of course, this month’s Frozen) will have to wait until May 30, 2014 for the film. (Source: E Online)
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted out an epic photo for Fast & Furious 7, which is currently filming in order to release July 11, 2014. No official photos have been released, but as recently as last week we’ve been seeing photos pop up. A trailer is likely far off, but that shouldn’t stop us from hoping. James Wan (The Conjuring) will direct the 7th movie, which adds Jason Statham to the cast of returners that include Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, “The Rock,” and more. (Source: Twitter)
A full crop of Out of the Furnace photos also surfaced this past week. Scott Cooper’s (Crazy Heart) action/thriller/drama has quite the cast (all of which can be seen in the gallery below). This cast includes Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone), and Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness). Out of the Furnace releases as soon as November 27th with a wide date set for December 6th.
A slightly smaller gallery turned up for Need for Speed. Aaron Paul (AMC’s Breaking Bad) leads the movie with Kid Cudi and Michael Keaton (what a combination!) also making an appearance. The video-game-turned-movie will release March 14, 2014, and I’m really hoping the movie will be at least decent…like the pictures below. (Source: Collider)
Grudge Match, the boxing film starring Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone, also released photos. Three total can be seen above showing the two stars and Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man). Peter Segal (Get Smart) is billed as the director and his latest work hits theaters starting December 25th. (Source: Collider)
The under-the-radar movie of the week goes to Jim Jarmusch’s (Broken Flowers) Only Lovers Left Alive. Tom Hiddleston, as you can see in the gallery below, has ditched his Loki locks for some sweet hair. He’s joined by Tilda Swinton (Moonrise Kingdom) and Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) in the vampire flick. The film still doesn’t have a theatrical release planned, but my guess is it’ll hit U.S. theaters in early 2014. Check out the full gallery below. (Source: IndieWire)
