The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Jamie Foxx
As far as superhero reboots go, "room for improvement" was probably the best way to sum up 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man." Certainly financially, the film made a very healthy $750 million worldwide, but that's still less than any of the three Sam Raimi films that preceded it. And creatively, the film had some strong building blocks—an increased emphasis on romance, a hugely appealing central pairing in Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (plus support from ringers like Sally Field and Martin Sheen), a bright sense of humor, a fresh-ish take on the characters—but a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain meant that there was plenty of opportunity for a sequel to prove itself worth of the title "amazing."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
While you might still be miffed that "The Amazing Spider-Man" told the origin story you already knew, director Marc Webb admits to Rolling Stone he actually turned down a script for the first movie that ditched it altogether. "It was different. It still had the Lizard in it, but it was a script that jumped ahead in time and relied on knowledge of the comic books that I don't think everyone had," he explained to the magazine. "Tonally, it was a little more tongue-in-cheek and glib, and I didn't feel the emotional connection. I just didn't know how else to develop that bond than with an origin story. I feel like it pays off in this movie, because now Andrew Garfield embodies Peter Parker."

The mystery is still unsolved, but the boys known as the West Memphis Three are now free, after being railroaded by a justice system perverted by the pursuit to find an answer, even if it wasn't the truth.

Here's some good news. While Anton Corbijn has generally taken his time between films—three years passed between "Control" and "The American," and it was four more until the forthcoming "A Most Wanted Man"—the filmmaker is already onto his next gig, currently in the midst of production in Canada on "Life" starring Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan. And yes, that's the first look at the pair above.

Spoiler alert? Yet another "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" trailer is here and in case you didn't already watch the lengthy, 4-minute Super Bowl trailer—which these mostly seems to be recut from with a couple of extra scenes tossed in—perhaps we should warn you that this seems to be giving up the game pretty early.

Given Hollywood's focus more on things that go boom and sell toys, and less on dramas with human beings, it's probably not a total shock that "College Republicans" hasn't gained much traction since landing on the 2010 Black List. At one point Richard Linklater was attached to direct, with Shia LaBeouf and Paul Dano linked to lead roles at various times, without anything ever coalescing. But the project is taking another swing at getting made, this time with a pair of compelling actors taking the starring roles.

Life After Beth, Aubrey Plaza
Sometimes the chemistry on a set works just perfectly, and you can just tell the cast had a ball making the movie. Such is the case with “Life After Beth,” Jeff Baena’s directorial debut, which premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival. The zombie comedy has a lively cast led by Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan, with comic talents Anna Kendrick, Molly Shannon, John C.
