The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Today, kind of randomly with only the barest of context, The Times Of India—for reasons of international marketing, we can only surmise—dropped three new photos from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." One is hilarious, one is of a villain and one has Emma Stone in it. Can you guess which one is the funny one?

White House Down, Roland Emmerich
This week, "White House Down," the deliriously silly (but ridiculously entertaining) White House hijacking movie, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, detonates onto Blu-ray and DVD. In honor of the film's release, we chatted with "White House Down" filmmaker Roland Emmerich and asked him to run down the five biggest influences on the film (which this writer places amongst the top tier of the director's work). At first he was reluctant ("I feel back in school, like I had to do homework"), but eventually he shared what fuelled his movie. Read on to find out what inspired "White House Down," the dirty wife beater Channing wears and Jamie Foxx's famous line about his sneakers.

Oliver Stone Jamie Foxx Martin Luther King Jr.
With "JFK," "Nixon" and "W." under his belt, Oliver Stone knows his way around (controversial) biopics of famous American leaders. But even with that said, he's not the first guy we'd think of for a movie about Martin Luther King Jr.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Jamie Foxx
For a movie that's not coming out for another year (okay, a bit less than that), "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" sure is blowing its load a bit early, dropping all kinds of images online. Are the filmmakers hoping to encourage audiences by letting them know this time around they are actually going to get a whole new and original story? Is it because Comic-Con is next week and this is just a preview to the smorgasbord of stuff that's coming? Our guess is that it's somewhere between the two, so let's just get to it.

The shoot may have been long and at times unpredictable, but it looks like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx got on just fine making "Django Unchained." So fine in fact, they want to work together again, although this time with characters on the same side.

With a movie called "White House Down," directed by Roland Emmerich, you pretty much know what you're going to get. Having already laid waste to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue twice before in "2012" and "Independence Day," Emmerich luxuriates in blowing up the national icon once again. Both wings and the main residence get shot up and bombed and rampaged, in addition to airplanes and helicopters getting shot out of the sky, SUVs flipping over and tanks obliterated. Emmerich doesn't miss a beat, and for bonus points, the Capitol Building comes crumbling down, with yet another Hollywood blockbuster lazily evoking 9/11 imagery for popcorn entertainment. And while some critics argue that "White House Down" satisfies whatever low, blockbuster bar Emmerich sets for himself, films this insipid and dumb do not deserve a pass just because they're "fun." While some may say that "White House Down" is self-aware of how extraordinarily silly it all is, the seriousness with which most of the cast plays it out, suggets otherwise.
