The sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man" is beginning to take shape, with Andrew Garfield already attached to reprise his role as the webbed wonder.
Now, Columbia Pictures is reaching out to Jamie Foxx to join the franchise. Though it's not certain which character the "Ray" star would play, he may have given us a pretty big hint on his Twitter account.
Spidey fans rejoice! Andrew Garfield has officially signed on to reprise his role for the next installment of “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia pictures, made the exciting announcement earlier this afternoon (September 28). Along with the 29-year-old actor, Marc Webb has also committed to direct the franchise again.
The excitement over its much-awaited theatrical debut quickly turned to sadness after a tragic shooting rampage claimed numerous lives in Aurora, Colorado, but "The Dark Knight Rises" still managed to deliver a dominant box office topping performance over the weekend of July 20-22, 2012.
Christopher Nolan's final Batman installment starring Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway garnered a powerful $76.1 million on opening day followed by $45.3 million on Saturday while tracking towards a $161.1 million premiere weekend in cinemas.
Delivering another solid performance for the animated genre, "Ice Age: Continental Drift" has become the third such film to garner the box office crown over the past five weeks.
While it hasn't posted as impressive numbers as predecessors "Brave" ($66.3 million) and "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" ($60.3 million), the Twentieth Century Fox Animation/Blue Sky Studios tale about Manny, Diego, and Sid's adventures took in approximately $16.5 million on both Friday and Saturday (July 13-14) which places its opening weekend total at a pack-leading $46 million.
Swinging into theaters in the grandest of fashion, "The Amazing Spider-Man" climbed its way to the top spot at the box office during the weekend of July 6-8, 2012.
The Andrew Garfield/Emma Stone starring Marvel adventure took in $20.7 million on Friday and $24.4 million on Saturday while on track for a debut weekend of $66 million putting its projected cume since being released on Tuesday at $140 million.
Climbing into theaters in grand fashion, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is expected to exceed previous opening day box office numbers after bringing in $7.5 million in select midnight screenings last night (July 2).
According to Sony Pictures, the Marc Webb directed motion picture starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone raked in the sizable sum from 3,150 midnight screenings while $1.2 million of that came from the 300 IMAX screens.
