Weekly Ricochet: The Amazing Spider-Man, Dredd, The Wolverine, and Prometheus

A quick round up for the Weekly Ricochet this week. Firstly, we here at The Shootening were lucky enough to have someone at the London sneak preview of The Amazing Spider-Man, giving me an excuse to post the picture of Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man unmasked above.

My friend and co-collaborator, @BunchOfSteve, had a positive opinion of the event and the new trailer. But what about I? If you’ve been following the coverage The Amazing Spider-Man on The Shootening, you will know I’ve been less than favourable about the film. The new trailer has changed all that. Spidey quips! He solves difficult equations on a blackboard proving he’s still a brain, not simply a sexy outsider! Okay, The Lizard has a look of the Super Mario Bros. Goombas about him, but hey, I’ll let it go as long as all the fights in the film are a thrilling as Ol’ Webhead’s takedown of the cops.

Some FX footage from Dredd has leaked online. Nothing too spoilery, just very early effects work, composites and the like. There is a particularly brutal .gif showing the execution of a perp that’ll give you a countdown to…







And it’s gone. While we’re on the subject of Dredd, Hero Complex has a great interview with Judge Dredd creator John Wagner. He gives a few reasons why he’s excited about Dredd, he covers his time with character in comic 2000AD, and even discusses why Sylvester Stallone’s Judge Dredd failed. It’s a good read.

I know it doesn’t hold the same excitement now that Darren Aronofsky has dropped out and James Mangold has taken his place, but Fox have given The Wolverine a release date – 26th July 2013. That’ll give time for Hugh Jackman to get the hell off Broadway and bulk up ready for the role that made his name.

And finally, a new pic from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Not massively exciting, it shows the wonderful Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green standing of some ancient graffiti. Possibly.
