We weren't sure whether to go with an "Arrested Development" joke ("I blue myself") or something about "Powder," so you'll have to come up with a wittier opening than we did. But needless to say, this first look at Jamie Foxx in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is certainly attention grabbing.

Jamie Foxx Wants To Scare With A Syfy Horror Series He'll Produce, Write & Direct

Perhaps the best advice any actor can receive is to diversity and Jamie Foxx -- who first became known for his comedy -- seems to be taking that to heart. Before "Django Unchained," he starred in the hit comedy "Horrible Bosses" (sequel on the way) before stepping into Quentin Tarantino's movie, and he'll next play the President in "White House Down," Electro in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and also do a voice role in "Rio 2." And how, he's dipping his toes into a wholly new genre -- well, actually, he's throwing his whole body in the pool....

Looks like Warner Bros. is pulling an "Akira," "Paradise Lost" and "Arthur & Lancelot" on "Tarzan." The studio, which famously shut down all of those aforementioned films while they were in pre-production, is doing the same thing with "Tarzan" for pretty much same reason: money, money, money.

No one quite suits the title of Master of Disaster quite like Roland Emmerich, the director behind such bombastically apocalyptic visions as "Independence Day," "Godzilla," "The Day After Tomorrow" and "2012." Emmerich has gleefully destroyed major monuments, turning the White House into kindling and New York City into a giant frozen puddle. In his latest oversized spectacle "White House Down," starring Channing Tatum as a put-upon would-be Secret Service agent and Jamie Foxx as the endangered Commander-in-Chief, Emmerich returns to the location of his most iconic detonation, this time exploring the bonds between father and daughter while also blowing up a lot of stuff and having many people get shot in gloriously violent ways. Earlier today we got a peek at the trailer (which you can watch below) as well as a glimpse of about ten minutes of additional footage. While the movie doesn’t come out until June 28th, we're pretty sure that it's going to be one of the summer's most satisfying blockbusters.

This Time The Bosses Are *Really* Horrible: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day & Jason Sudeikis Sign For 'Horrible Bosses 2'

In the works for a while now, "Horrible Bosses 2" seemed inevitable. The first film – great concept, pretty dull execution – powered its way to over $200 million worldwide. So no surprise that at the beginning of 2012, word first started burbling about a sequel, and by the summer, Seth Gordon was being offered the director's chair to return. Well, he's back, as are the three principal leads.

It Might Have Been Will Smith Or Jamie Foxx, But Nick Cannon Will Play Drug Dealer Rick Ross In Biopic

Back in 2011 it was reported that Nick Cassavetes was gearing up to direct a biopic of the notorious former drug kingpin, Rick Ross (not the rapper, fyi). Cassavetes also penned the script, which focuses on Ross’ early days as a crack cocaine dealer in Miami. The story gets its weight from the fact that Ross was supplied by Contras who were busy fighting the Nicaraguan government at the time, and also just so happened to be funded by officials in the Reagan administration. After working on the project for a couple of years it looks like Cassavetes has finally settled on a leading man…and it’s “America’s Got Talent” presenter Nick Cannon....

Since “Batman Begins,” superhero films have upped the ante as far as casting legit names to act out action-packed costumed melodramas for mass audiences. But it’s hard to say we’ve seen anything like the upcoming sequel to “The Amazing Spider-Man,” which last week added Oscar winner Chris Cooper to a cast that includes Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley and Dane DeHaan as well as fellow Oscar winners Sally Field and Jamie Foxx and former nominee Paul Giamatti. That would be a whole lot of acclaim for a small indie film, but it’s also the sort of prestige unheard of for a mega-blockbuster that was received coolly by critics and diehards.

Jamie Foxx Says Spike Lee Is "Irresponsible" To Judge 'Django Unchained' Without Seeing It

You might remember that just before the film opened nationwide, the always opinionated Spike Lee weighed in on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." "...it's disrespectful to my ancestors, to see that film," he said in an interview, while he also hit Twitter to proclaim, "American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them." Since then, there hasn't been much reaction from camp 'Django,' but now Jamie Foxx has broken the silence.

Jamie Foxx Talks Being The Hero Of 'Django Unchained,' Playing Electro In 'Spider Man 2' & His Riff On Obama In 'White House Down'

It's only been in theaters for two days, but Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" has already racked up $15 million in box-office receipts. By the weekend, this controversial slave drama/Spaghetti Western should be sitting very pretty for what we presume will be a long and healthy theatrical run. Starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and more, the almost three-hour picture centers on a bounty hunter (Waltz) who mentors a freed slave (Foxx) and then takes him on a journey to save his wife from a evil slave plantation owner (DiCaprio). Suffice to say it's a revenge picture with buckets of blood, rascism to spare, n-bombs flying left, right and center, Jackson playing what he describes as the "most hated negro in cinematic history" and let's just say there are lots of controversial moments in it (Spike Lee is already turned off, having not even seen it).

At two hours and forty five minutes, you know that Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” is sprawling and long. So long that Harvey Weinstein suggested cutting the films in two ala “Kill Bill” in the editing room (the idea was nixed obviously). And with a script that was 166 pages (roughly 3 hours), you know that not everything was going to make the cut.
