"Iron Man 3" and "Man of Steel" might be the superhero names on everyone's lips this summer, but next summer it's going to be a very different scene thanks to "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." But why wait when you can get your first look at the sinister Rhino right now thanks to director Marc Webb himself?
Yes, Webb has just tweeted out the first photo of Paul Giamatti in character as the deadly Aleksei Sytsevich. And he looks... well, pretty pissed off.
Of course, he also doesn't look much like a rhino, as he's not wearing his patented Rhino suit. So will he actually be suiting up in the movie? It's hard to guess. After all, comic fans were already surprised to see that Jamie Foxx's Electro looks more like a member of Blue Man Group than the traditional Marvel Comics supervillain.
So whatever. One thing is sure, though: Giamatti definitely doesn't need a costume to look scary. Save us, Spider-Man!
Now that production is in full building-to-building swing on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in the Big Apple, Columbia Pictures has now shot out its official presser with a few stringy plot details about the flick in its web.
In addition to assuring the return of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Sally Field (duh), add-ons Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore and Paul Giamatti are also now confirmed. Get More »
Pretty much every kid dreams of being a superhero when they grow up, but which superhero is a matter of personal taste. Many kids want to be Batman or Superman, of course, while others imagine themselves as Captain America or Iron Man.
But not Paul Giamatti. No, when Paul Giamatti was a kid, he dreamed of being the somewhat goofy B-list Spider-Man villain The Rhino.
And according to The Hollywood Reporter, that dream is about to come true.
Yes, that's right: Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Giamatti is currently in talks to play The Rhino in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," where he would join an already packed cast that includes Jamie Foxx as Electro and returning cast members Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. Get More »
You thought Robert Pattinson was the ideal choice to play Edward Cullen in "Twilight." You believed that no other actor could play the stuck-up bookstore owner with as much hidden depth as Tom Hanks in "You've Got Mail." And you thought no one could radiate sex appeal like Channing Tatum in "Magic Mike."
Paul Giamatti dares to prove you wrong. And in the above video, he succeeds.
Yes, with the help of Vulture's Julie Klausner, Giamatti dramatically reads lines as each of the three debonair leading men, and blows our socks off in the process. Seriously, we're still in the process of going around the office and gathering up all of our socks.
Now the producers of each of the three films have to be questioning their decisions. "Oh, my. Did we make the wrong casting choice?" NextMovie's opinion on each of the three films, respectively: Yes, yes, and absolutely.
Adam Shankman's new film based on the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" just might make you think you could get on the stage, belt out some tunes and melt some faces, but a word of caution: These are professionals.
This story of glam-metal glory follows two L.A. dreamers, Bourbon Club waitress Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough) and busboy Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), as they sing and strut their way to the top ... '80s style. The crooning all-star cast includes Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti and Tom Cruise, unleashing his inner Axl Rose as the mercurial rock beast Stacee Jaxx.

A tree may grow in Brooklyn, but if you can't find it there, don't worry, because Paul Rudd 's got one — and he'll be happy to sell it to you.
Sound weird? Well, don't worry, Rudd hasn't given up the life of a Hollywood star to become New York's most charismatic arborist; according to Deadline, he's actually getting ready to shoot the upcoming comedy "Lucky Dog," about a con-man turned Christmas tree salesman.
No wonder mommy was kissing Santa Claus.
But before you start thinking this is another feel-good story about someone learning the true meaning of Christmas, well, think again. Get More »
One upon a time, Tom Cruise was just another up-and-coming Hollywood hopeful. Then, with one memorable rock 'n 'roll number in his underwear in "Risky Business," he turned himself into a worldwide movie icon. That seems like a long time ago now, but thanks to the brand new trailer for "Rock of Ages," it looks like lightning is about to strike twice.
Because Tom Cruise: Rock God is back.
Of course, "Rock of Ages" has a lot of other things going for it as well. For instance, it's a big screen, big budget adaptation of the wildly popular Broadway musical that takes the hottest hair band hits of the '80s and turns them into dramatic (and comedic) gold. Get More »
One of the biggest disappointments in the world is finding out how a movie ends before you hit the theater. That is, of course, unless you're waiting to see the "John Dies at the End," based on the David Wong novel of the same name.
