Photo Mania: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Divergent, Dumb & Dumber To, and More
Welcome to what seems like an early Wednesday. With the short week, we aren’t short on movie titles. Today you can find 1-3 photos for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Divergent, Dumb and Dumber To, Berandal (or The Raid 2), The Pirate Fairy, The Quiet Ones, and Nurse 3D. Scroll to find the photos (and galleries) along with director, stars, and release dates for each movie.
The first movie up is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and its three new photos. They show off the big three, if you will, in Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx (cast as the new villain). Marc Webb is directing the movie again and it will release on May 2nd. (Source: MTV)
Before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 releases, we’ll get the next big Young Adult adaptation in Divergent. Although the movie already comes out on March 21st, we have seen littler than I expected from Neil Burger’s (Limitless) film. As the new photos show, the franchise stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) as Tris. Theo James (CBS’s Golden Boy) also stars. (Source: Hypable)
The biggest surprise of this week came with the first official image for Dumb and Dumber To (which is also the timeliest photo to surface). The long-awaited (and long-time rumored dead) sequel to Dumb and Dumber finally showed off Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) to prove the movie is actually moving forward. The Farrelly Brothers also return as directors with a release date already set for November 14th of this year. (Source: Twitter)
Since it’s playing at Sundance currently, Berandal is on a mini-marketing push. Better known as The Raid 2 perhaps, the sequel to the great martial arts-action movie The Raid will hit wide theaters March 28th in the U.S. I can’t wait to see what returner Iko Uwais and director Gareth Evans have to offer.

Two photos also released for the animated fantasy The Pirate Fairy. I didn’t know a lot about this movie before this post, but now I know Disney’s movie will feature Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Christina Hendricks’ (AMC’s Mad Men) voices. It’s directed by Peggy Holmes (The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning). No need to wait for this movie to hit theaters, though, as it’ll release on home media starting April 1st (no April Fool’s joke needed). (Source: Yahoo)
From animated to horror movie, I also wanted to feature The Quiet Ones. There is just one photo available above, but I should also mention Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) stars alongside Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire). It’s directed by John Pogue and should hit theaters April 25th if you’re interested.
Lastly, three photos for Doug Aarniokoski’s Nurse 3D were sent over. Also a horror, this one stars Paz de la Huerta (A Walk to Remember) and Katrina Bowden (NBC’s 30 Rock). The obviously 3D movie is coming out soon on February 7th. Check out all three photos below if you want the full-size versions.
Come on back tomorrow for the latest news breaks.
