Emma Stone is about to be launched into the stratosphere this summer. The actress who worked her way up the ladder with considerable charm in a string of films ("Superbad," "Easy A," "Stupid Crazy Love," "The Help") features in her first franchise in "The Amazing Spider-Man." Then later this fall, she'll go all femme fatale alongside the macho cast of "Gangster Squad." But lest you think she doesn't have time to have fun anymore, you'd be mistaken.

While it may seem that the geek set is kinda cool on "The Amazing Spider-Man," let's just keep a couple of things in mind. First, Sony opened "Men In Black III" to over $200 million worldwide this weekend, with the movie topping the box office in 104 countries. And based on that, don't discount the studio's ability to nab the younger crowd -- who they are clearly going for -- and pile 'em into theaters on the long Fourth of July weekend. 'Spider-Man' is hardly down for the count, and his newest Aussie trailer shows it has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Aw. Awwww. It seems that the international marketing team behind "The Amazing Spider-Man" know the way to our hearts. We've had a whole host of trailers for the superhero reboot (including a four-minute spot only a few days ago), which hits in July, and while there's some promise in them, none have quite convinced us yet that we won't be bored by sitting through another origin story, only a decade after Sam Raimi first took a spin at the material. That being said, we've like the in-context footage that we've seen, principally because of the film's leads, Andrew Garfield ("The Social Network"), who plays web-slinger Peter Parker, and Emma Stone ("Easy A"), who plays his love interest, Gwen Stacy.

With "The Avengers" already in theaters and crushing the box office, and with Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" looking to deliver the epic finale everyone is hoping for, can Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man" make it three-for-three? Well, the newest (and, presumably, the last) trailer is here and it's pretty… blah. Sony is going to have to go into overdrive to convince people that it's worth sitting through another two hours of "how Peter Parker got his Spider-Man powers," because, really, this trailer isn't convincing anyone.

Jason Reitman Debuts His 'Live Read' Series In NYC With 'The Apartment' Starring Paul Rudd & Emma Stone

It was a magical evening at the New York Times Center last night for those lucky enough to be in attendance, for at long last Jason Reitman brought his “Live Read” Series to NYC. The series began about 6 months ago when the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) asked Reitman if he had any ideas for programs. His idea was a simple one: to stage readings of classic screenplays live on stage and one-time-only for an audience of a few hundred people. As he told the NY Times recently, “I’d done table reads for my own screenplays, and I always thought they were so much fun. [So I thought], ‘Why couldn’t we do these for other classic screenplays and bring them to life?’ You can experience live theater, where you get to see plays produced by different directors and different casts, but there’s really nothing like that for movie scripts. The great words in these screenplays were really only heard one way, the way they existed in that one film.” The cast for each reading is kept secret until well after tickets have sold out and in some cases until the night of the event, which only adds to the excitement.

'Crazy Stupid Love' Helmers Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Want Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone To Reunite For Grifter Comedy 'Focus'

Pairing up hot young things Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in a movie together is a no brainer, and Warner Bros. has done it twice already, first with last summer's hit comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and then in the upcoming (and now undated) "Gangster Squad." And if 'Crazy' directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa get their way, the studio will once again reunite the duo.

Tom Cruise is back baby, and the actor hasn't been slowing down for a second, eager to strike with the moment is still hot. But a side-story to his recent string of movies has been the bevy of beauties he's lined up to star with. Paula Patton and Lea Seydoux prowled "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol"; Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough feature in "Oblivion" and Rosamund Pike stars in "One Shot." And another talented, and yes attractive, lead is lining up for Cruise's next big screen undertaking.

"Prometheus" is offering up one of the most exciting movies of the year, "The Dark Knight Rises" promises the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan's game-changing franchise, "The Avengers" assembles every Marvel superhero under one roof... what does "The Amazing Spider-Man" have to offer? A reboot of the comic story Sam Raimi turned into a trilogy that only ended five years ago, Sony and Marc Webb will need to do some convincing, but it seems they are offering a grittier take than the previous, more light-hearted (and emo) effort.

Last year, we had four summer superhero films, of which two turned out to be fairly unqualified successes -- the Marvel pictures, "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" -- one a moderate success -- "X-Men First Class" -- and one that tanked like Lori Petty -- "Green Lantern." As we said sometime last week, this summer is less complicated when it comes to comic book fare, with two of the three films based on graphic novels being solid gold hits regardless of anything, namely "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers."
