SINGAPORE/LOS ANGELES — Following the recent announcement that Spider-Man is the first Super Hero ambassador for Earth Hour, the global movement organized by WWF, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone from the highly anticipated motion picture The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have chosen to back two separate projects on ‘Earth Hour Blue’, a new crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for the planet.
With a message to inspire individuals to use their power to become a Super Hero for the planet, the new platform launched from Earth Hour’s global headquarters in Singapore will allow anyone to use their voice or their dollar to take action and support projects across the globe.
Now run globally from Singapore at the heart of Asia, Earth Hour has rapidly grown to involve hundreds of millions of people from all walks of life and global landmarks across 7000 cities and towns and 154 countries and territories.
Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is supporting the Earth Hour Blue project ‘A Flame Called Hope’. The project aims to provide clean bio-gas energy for local communities in Nepal, thereby reducing deforestation and providing an alternate means of livelihood for families in the area.
Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have marked out a December 25, 2014 release date for their untitled Cameron Crowe film, which stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. Scott Rudin is producing with Crowe, who wrote and directed the romantic comedy. There’s still no title, but the plot centers on a defense contractor (Cooper) who falls for an Air Force pilot (Stone) after he is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii.

It’s official! Sony have given fans of the iconic wall-crawling comic-book character an early Christmas present with confirmation that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 trailer will arrive online on the 5th December.
The rather appropriately named Marc Webb is once again at the helm of the blockbusting return of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and his alter-ego, as he takes on Jamie Foxx’s sparky villain Max Dillon (aka Electro) as well as the introduction of a host of other goons. All who a sure to make their presence felt in the expected future instalments as part of the Sinister Six.
I saw a rough unfinished cut of the trailer during San Diego Comic Con which suggested there were as many amusing moments as there were action-packed set-pieces.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will swing into UK cinemas from 18th April and the US on the 2nd May 2014. It co-stars Emma Stone, B.J. Novak, Denis Leary, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Zylka, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Marton Csokas, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, Paul Giamatti and Sarah Gadon.
After the disappointing GHOSTBUSTERS 2 followed one of the most popular films of the early 80?s the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise has been left in a state of limbo, with the only legitimate development being the two animated Television series’ that were released shortly after the first and second films.
A third film in the franchise has been teased for a long time by former Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd with Sony seemingly eager for the original team to once again put on the iconic proton packs. The only hurdle has been Bill Murray’s involvement, after a long back and fourth between Aykroyd, Sony and the general public it has become very clear Mr Murray has no desire whatsoever to reprise his role as Peter Venkman. Now it seems that Sony is finally ready to press ahead with long stalled GHOSTBUSTERS 3 without Bill Murray, as a new rumour claims that offers have been made to two of the most highly talented and demanded young actors in Hollywood.
Jonah Hill (21 JUMP STREET) and Emma Stone (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) have both been offered roles in the upcoming sequel, if they accept then they will play the parts of Jeremy and Anna. Who Jeremy and Anna are is unclear at the moment but it’s safe to assume they would be part of a new younger generation of Ghostbusters possibly even children of the original members. It’s to early to get excited yet but we can certainly be cautiously optimistic that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is inching ever closer to getting the greenlight from Sony. The possible involvement of these two actors is definitely an exciting prospect after losing leading actor Bill Murray and it would be great to see them work together again after the brilliant SUPERBAD.
