Irrfan Khan

“Hollywood, Hollywood, can’t stop showing clips galore, spoil the plot, then some more, look out…look out for Marketeers!!!” In case you’re wondering, yes… that was a riff on the 1960’s Spider-Man theme. Crafty, aren’t I? Anyway, here we are again with another round of clips from The Amazing Spider-Man.

First up, we got a clip featuring Andrew Garfield‘s Peter Parker telling Denis Leary‘s Captain Stacy about how the alligator in the sewer (aka The Lizard) is really Dr. Connors. Leary responds with an appropriate “Do I LOOK like the Mayor of Tokyo to you?” [via MetaCafe ]

Next, we have a minute long clip of Spidey swinging around New York City. Really that’s it. Just some New York free running from ‘ole web head. Enjoy. [via Yahoo! Movies ]

Lastly, we have a brand-new behind-the-scenes featurette which focuses on films stunt work. Parkour, free-running, wires and blue screen galore. I agree with Andy Armstrong, the action looks pretty narly. [via Sprint]

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 3, the Marc Webb-directed action adventure also stars Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.

 

 

Today has been heavy with TV spots.  Instead of rifling off of a bunch of short posts, we thought it would be much more reader friendly to compile them into a compendium. OK, I admit it. We were just too goddamn lazy. Anyhow, scroll on down to see some new spots for Expendable 2, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises.

Lionsgate has released a third TV spot for The Expendables 2Much like the first two spots, you can expect explosions and geriatric  acting.

In the August 17 release, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road ()Randy Couture and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job.

With almost a month left until Marc Webb rendition of The Amazing Spider-Man, we all know what time it is: re-cut movie trailer time! Actually, while we get the same re-cut footage, our friends to the balmy south (AKA the Australians) get a previously-released trailer but with a dash of some never-before-seen clips.

Check out the trailer below:

Coming into theaters in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 3, The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.

Yea, yea, we’re all hyped to see The Avengers (hitting theaters May 4th), but there are other super hero movies to look forward to. Namely, The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man. The latter of which is probably the least anticipated. This is not to say nobody is interested, but just about every film pales in comparison to The Avengers and The Dark Knight. Plus, most folks are still feeling a bit uncomfortable with the whole reboot thing. Especially when the last SM film was just a few years ago.

However, Sony Pictures, with director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) are trying desperately hard to give us a Spider-Man we can believe in again. The recent trailers have shown us a darker, edgier Spider-Man…and a blonde Emma Stone. If anything, we can be thankful for the latter. Emma Stone is so HOT!

Anyhow, Sony Pictures has revealed a new international trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, which features more footage and some nifty Japanese subtitles.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker ( Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

It’s been a super kind of week. Superbowl and super heroes.

While I’m battling a super case of the shits, brought on by some tainted nachos, there is another stink in the air. Two in fact. A possible appearance of the ‘The Boy Wonder’ in Chris Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and a Bollywood actor (who seems to hate America) won’t villain up as the Protogoblin in Marc Webb’s ‘Spider-Man’ reboot.

Starting with the curry goblin news. Indian actor Irrfan Khan has in fact been cast in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Reports put him in the role of Nels Van Atter. According to Marvel lore, he is the evil Proto-Goblin, a research assistant to Mendel Stromm and employee of Norman Osborne (aka The Green Goblin). He was used in the conducting of high-tech experiments, and served as a test subject for a chemical that was developed by Osborne and Stromm, which turned him into a red beast with fangs and claws.
PROTO
Well, the following excerpt from an interview he did with Indian Express seems to debunk any possibility that we’ll see him transform into the monsterous villain at any point in the upcoming movie!
