In an evil Green Goblin Broadway voice, sing with me, Spider-Man, Spider-Man, radioactive Spider-Man. After receiving lukewarm reviews from most and a downright hateful one from yours truly, The Amazing Spider-Man didn’t exactly set the world on fire. They have a lot to live up to in the bigger budget sequel and are clearly betting the whole friendly neighborhood on it being a smash. The entire cast from the first film returns for the sequel, but then that’s not saying much as it wasn’t a particularly big one to begin with.
The rumors were true. Sony confirmed that yes indeed The Amazing Spider-Man is now an official “universe.” There will be two spin-off films – Venom and The Sinister Six. After this big announcement Sony pictures surprised the crowd at CinemaCon by giving the audience a 30-minute taste of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The three clips showcased an arc in the film.
I’m going to be honest here, I didn’t like the first Spider-Man but I’m hoping to love Spidey 2, but I’m just not sure about this trailer and the idea of this being a trilogy. I’m fairly positive that I can guess what the ending will be, but we’ll see. Here is the brand new spot that aired during the Super-Bowl.
Lake Bell wrote, directed, produced and stars in In A World… – a very personal but completely accessible movie about a woman who faces the glass ceiling of the movie trailer narration biz while surviving as a vocal coach to actors like Eva Longoria. What makes her struggle more intense and funnier, is the fact that her father is the king of trailers.
Men in Black 3 finds Agent J time-traveling to 1969 to save his partner, Agent K, from being killed before he can stop an alien invasion. It’s definitely better than MIB2, but nowhere near as good as MIB.
Sniper: Reloaded is available on DVD/Blu_ray from Sony Pictures as of 4/26/11
In 1993, Tom Berenger starred as a tough as nails U.S. Marine sniper Thomas Beckett, whose standing orders were to seek out rebels and remove them using his sniper skills. In 2011, Chad Michael Collins takes over the military position from Berenger as the franchise continues with the newest addition titled Sniper: Reloaded.
In Sniper:Reloaded, Chad Michael Collins plays Sgt. Brandon Beckett, a hotheaded infantry grunt and the estranged son of Berenger’s elite sniper Thomas Beckett. Brandon is military all the way, but determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps as a sniper even though circumstances seem to be pushing him in that direction.
Chad Michael Collins, who describes himself as an ‘accidental’ actor who has fully embraced “playing pretend for a living,” landed in LA to work in public relations. After several years of doing celebrity PR, he was approached by a prominent manager/producer who convinced him to try out an acting class – his first ever. Collins has a strong screen presence that lends itself well to playing soldiers and men of action, which has led him to be an actor with a diverse resume ranging from roles in horror movies Legion of the Dead and Lake Placid Three to numerous guest appearances on top rated television series including NCIS and CSI:NY.
Eclipse Magazine recently caught up with Chad Michael Collins to talk to him about his starring role in the newly released to DVD movie, Sniper: Reloaded.
