First Look: Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

We've caught some brief glimpses of Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on that large triptych poster from last year, and also some quick shots in the most recent theatrical trailer. But now we finally get a good, solid look at one of the big bad guys in the superhero sequel with a new photo that shows DeHaan with a firm grip around the throat of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. It looks like this scene takes place in the same place where we've seen Electro chasing Spidey and shooting electricity his way, so it seems like our hero will face at least two villains at once. DeHaan certainly looks crazy as hell.

First Look: Jessica Chastain in J.C. Chandor's 'A Most Violent Year'

A Most Violent Year

Though A Most Violent Year didn't play at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the next film from Margin Call and All is Lost director J.C. Chandor landed distribution in the United States during the indie movie marathon with A24 picking up the New York City thriller set in 1981.

Now we have a first look photo featuring Chastain looking rather glamorous. Look!

First Look: New 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Photos + Trailer on Tuesday

Guardians of the Galaxy

So far we've only seen one official photo from Marvel's forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, but now three more photos have just surfaced ahead of the premiere for the trailer, which will happen tomorrow night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Chris Pratt will be introducing the trailer tomorrow on the show, and it will also start playing in theaters this weekend.

Plus, there's a cool jet-style ship. Come back tomorrow for the trailer!

First Look: Edgar Ramirez & Robert De Niro Ready in 'Hands of Stone'

Hands of Stone

Though last Christmas brought Robert De Niro back to the boxing ring in disappointing fashion with Grudge Match, a new boxing drama might fare better. Hands of Stone will feature De Niro as boxing trainer Ray Arcel, the man behind Panama-born fighter Roberto Duran, who made his professional boxing debut in 1968 as a 16-year-old. In 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard to capture the WBC welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in a rematch, saying "no mas," and eventually quitting the sport. Now we have the first photo featuring De Niro with Edgar Ramirez as Duran. Look!

First Look: Jason Segel's 'Sex Tape' with Cameron Diaz in Roller Skates

Sex Tape

This summer we'll be getting another dose of Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz with the Bad Teacher co-stars reuniting for Sex Tape, a comedy that's also directed by Jake Kasdan. And now we have the first look at the film featuring some of the frisky acts that are likely featured in the title video. And since it features Diaz wearing roller skates as if she's some kind of Boogie Nights stunt double, it's easy to see why the couple is desperate to get it back when it ends up in the wrong hands and is set to be unleashed online to millions. Sounds like Diaz and Segel are in for a crazy night to stop their video from hitting the web. Look!

First Look: Jason Clarke Faces the Cold in Baltasar Kormákur's 'Everest'


This year Jason Clarke will face a revolution of simians in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but next year he'll be facing the elements in Everest, a mountain climbing drama from Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband). Now we have the first look at the film which will be presented in 3D when it hits theaters in February of 2015. There's no sight of the rest of the impressive cast, which also includes Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal (sadly no sign of John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt). With a script from Simon Beaufoy, we're anxious to see how this cold and dangerous expedition turns out. Look below!

First Look: John Travolta & Christopher Plummer Star in 'The Forger'

The Forger

Lately John Travolta has been struggling as an actor, so much that he's lending his voice to a cheap animated film called Gummy Bear. But there might be some promise in his future still as we have a first look at The Forger, a new heist thriller being sold at the European Film Market right now. In the film John Travolta teams with Christopher Plummer and rising young star Tye Sheridan for a film about a father and son who must pull off a heist in order to pay a crime syndicate for paying for the son's early release from prison. It would be nice to see Travolta have another comeback since falling to the wayside. Look below!

Another Look at One of Paul Walker's Final Roles in 'Brick Mansions'

Brick Mansions

When news spread of the death of Paul Walker, fans began wondering what would happen to the actor's remaining projects. We know now that Fast & Furious 7 has been pushed back to 2015 in order to allow director James Wan and producers to work on the film and figure out how to carry on without Walker involved. But Brick Mansions, a film Walker had already completed has just gotten a release date of April 25th. The film is an English-language remake of Pierre Morel's District B13 following an undercover cop tasked with going into a tenement named Brick Mansions in order to disarm a neutron bomb ticking down. And now a new first look photo featuring Walker with co-star RZA has just popped up. Look below!

First Look: Al Pacino Has Keys in David Gordon Green's 'Manglehorn'


There's a lot of films being sold and hyped at the Berlin Film Market during the Berlin Film Festival, and a lot of them we'll never hear of again, so we're simply not talking about them. But one such film that we're interested in is another project from director David Gordon Green (Prince Avalanche, Pineapple Express). This time, Green has rounded up Al Pacino for Manglehorn, and we have the first photo from the film. In the film, Pacino plays the title character, an aging guy in a small town who is unmasked as having a very dark past. Maybe Green can break the terrible streak of bad films Pacino has made lately.

First Look Photo: Russell Crowe's Directorial Debut 'The Water Diviner'

The Water Diviner Photo

Did you know that Russell Crowe (star of Noah) is currently directing his first film? Shooting is already underway, and Crowe is starring and directing the film about an Australian man who travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. It's titled The Water Diviner and the first official still arrived recently. They're currently shooting in Australia before going to Turkey, and this looks like an early moment with one of his sons. The supporting cast includes Turkish actors Yilmaz Erdogan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia) and Cem Yilmaz (Hokkabaz), Oz actors Jai Courtney, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, Ryan Corr, Michael Dorman, plus Dylan Georgiades. It's a very nice first look, caught my attention.

Empire's Full 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Panorama & Future Sentinel

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Yesterday, we continually posted the magazine covers from Empire promoting the forthcoming summer release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. There are 25 total covers, but when the final one was revealed, we decided to separate it from the pack. Why? Because it's our first look at the sentinels of the future wreaking havoc on Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman and the rest of the X-Men originated by director Bryan Singer. They certainly don't look much like the retro design we've seen from Trask Industries, and have an almost surreal quality about them. Anyway, in addition we've also included a glimpse at the full panorama shot that is created when all of the magazine covers are put side-by-side. Look!

First Look: Charlize Theron Fires in 'A Million Ways to Die in the West'

A Million Ways to Die in the West

We've already seen one photo from Seth MacFarlane's western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, but we're still waiting for some sort of teaser trailer. In the meantime, we have a new photo from the film featuring Charlize Theron looking like wild west bad ass as she wields two pistols. Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried and MacFarlane himself look off-screen, likely in awe at Theron's gunslinger talents. Seyfried looks a little more concerned than impressed though, so maybe Theron has just shot someone? Since this is a comedy, we won't know what we're dealing with until we get a trailer so stay tuned.

First Look: Jeff Bridges & Brenton Thwaites in 'The Giver' Adaptation

The Giver

It's not often that I would call an adaptation one of my most anticipated, but there's something about this story that intrigues me, and this film has been a long time in the making. has debuted the first two photos from The Giver, adapted from Lois Lowry's novel, starring Jeff Bridges and most importantly, Brenton Thwaites as Jonas. Bridges has been developing this project for a while, and is producing as well as staring as "The Giver". The cast also includes Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgård, Taylor Swift and Katie Holmes, who aren't pictured yet. But this is a good first look, and we'll definitely be keeping our eye on this.

First Look: Jim Carrey & Jeff Daniels Ride Hard in 'Dumb & Dumber To'

Dumb & Dumber To

We've already gotten a peek at Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back together in the sequel Dumb & Dumber To, coming 20 years after the 1994 contemporary comedy hit. Now we have the first official photo from the film directed by Peter & Bobby Farrelly, and it looks like Lloyd (Carrey) and Harry (Daniels) have traded out their old scooter for a statue of a deer. We're not exactly sure what's going on in this picture, or what that package is in Harry's hands, but it looks like the duo is having a good time. We're not sure if these new antics will shake a stick at the beloved original, but the film is still one I'm excited about. Look!
