    More 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Nonsense: Fox May "Allow" Marc Webb To Direct It, If He Signs A Two-Picture Deal

    It might not have lived up to the grosses of the Sam Raimi films (it lags nearly $100 million behind "Spider-Man 3" domestically, and more than the same amount behind "Spider-Man 2" internationally), but even so, Sony have to be pretty happy about "The Amazing Spider-Man."

    Sony and Universal Hawk Summer and Holiday Slates, from 'Spider-Man' and 'Total Recall' to 'Battleship' and 'Bourne'

    Which of the six studio presentations at CinemaCon were represented by their chairmen? One could argue that the ones who most wanted to be identified with their slates, to OWN them if you will, were the ones who showed up.

    Jaden Smith Pulls A Taylor Lautner, Lines Up Teen Assassin Flick 'Boy Nobody'

    It's not easy to shake-off the wholesome teen heartthrob image to transition into a "serious actor" but generally, young thesps try (and often fail) to do something gritty to prove their skills. Just look at the kids in the "Twilight" series. Kristen Stewart has arguably done...

    With "The Hunger Games" killing everything in its sights at the box office, Sony has decided to get serious about its adaptation of "The Mortal Instruments," which has the potential to become a "Twilight"/"Hunger Games"-esque franchise, but perhaps even bigger. Or, at least, longer. Like the other a...
