The Amazing Spider-Man's Stars Have Brilliant Chemistry: Review

Let's settle the debate. Did we need a Spidey reboot five years after his last outing? Nope. This Spider-Man's solid script and capable effects simply aren't vibrant enough to warrant rehashing high-school shutterbug Peter Parker's life-altering spider bite. The performances, though – now those are extraordinary.

Start with the supporting cast. For gravitas, Martin Sheen and Sally Field play parental figures Uncle Ben and Aunt May, with Sheen giving Ben the fiery righteousness needed to orient Peter's moral compass in darker days.

Rhys Ifans adds nuanced edge as mad scientist Curt Connors, while Dennis Leary stiffens his spine as police captain George Stacy, out to nab a certain web-slinging vigilante.

Andrew Garfield Shows Off His Basketball Moves

Originally posted 06/27/2012 02:30PM

Andrew Garfield may be the Amazing Spider-Man, but he's not so amazing when it comes to basketball.

While attending an event at the Madison Boys & Girls Club in Brooklyn on Tuesday, the leading man showed off his slam dunk skills – but judging by this pic, he might be better off sticking to his day job.

At least he was there for a good cause: Garfield, 28, and his Spider-Man costar Emma Stone, 23, were on hand to teach kids the importance of volunteering.

The gathering, part of a larger citywide event called "Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer," was sponsored by Columbia Pictures and the upcoming film, Amazing Spider-Man.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson helped a lucky New Jersey couple celebrate their big day this weekend.

The on- and off-screen couple – along with Zac Efron, Andrew Garfield (sans girlfriend Emma Stone) and Will Kopelman (sans wife Drew Barrymore) – made their way to Englewood, N.J., where Hollywood producer Kevin Turen wed Evelina Oboza on Saturday.

"They stuck to each other's side all night," an attendee tells PEOPLE of Stewart, 22, and Pattinson, 26, who partied with guests until dawn and were spotted walking hand-in-hand during the celebration.

And the bride wasn't the only one (likely) wearing something borrowed.

Emma Stone: I Have a History of Panic Attacks

Emma Stone is well known for playing brassy, confident characters in movies like The Help and Superbad – but the actress recently revealed something that fans likely wouldn't expect: She grew up suffering from panic attacks.

Stone, who stars with beau Andrew Garfield in the upcoming superhero film The Amazing Spider-Man, tells Vogue in their July cover story that she had panic attacks starting at about 8 years old.

"I was just kind of immobilized by it," she explains. "I didn't want to go to my friends' houses or hang out with anybody, and nobody really understood."

There's no denying their on-screen chemistry in The Amazing Spider-Man – just check out that kiss. But Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone weren't just faking it for the cameras.

"We got on really well as people in between [takes]," Garfield, 28, tells MTV News. "That was the fun stuff. In between, we'd just mess around, and I felt, 'Ah, this is different.' "

So what attracted him to Stone, 23, whom he began dating last year?

Andrew Garfield Gets Some Lip Service from Emma Stone

Originally posted 05/04/2012 06:00AM

A fan of Fresh skincare, Emma Stone recently brought beau Andrew Garfield into an N.Y.C. location to try the beauty line's Sugar Lip Treatment to help with his chapped lips.

"They were holding hands and were very affectionate," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They were very nice to the sales team. Emma was enthusiastic, bubbly and excited to help with Andrew's dry lips."

Stone's pitch must have been convincing, because the pair purchased the treatment with SPF 15 before they walked out of the store.

The Amazing Spider-Man Trailer: Emma Stone Is Swept Off Her Feet

Originally posted 05/03/2012 09:15PM



Emma Stone certainly isn't afraid of spiders, as she demonstrates in a steamy scene with everyone's favorite Webhead, in a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man released Thursday.

The spot features a buff, shirtless Andrew Garfield as Spidey going in for some face time with a blonde Stone as she tends to his wounds with a towel.

Though it mainly plays up the action scenes in the film, with Garfield's Peter Parker battling bad guys as he searches for the truth about his parents, the trailer also offers (in a blink-and-you'll miss it moment) a tease of a liplock between the real-life couple.

Broadway's biggest night – the 66th annual Tony Awards – may be 40 days away, but the celebrating has already kicked in, especially for a modest new musical called Once, a love story set in Ireland that scored the most nominations of any show this year: 11, including best musical.

Not celebrating: the much-maligned Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which, despite an expenditure of $70 million, scads of publicity and the music of U2's Bono and the Edge, landed with only two nominations, for costume and scenic design.

Faring better after the nominations were announced Tuesday morning – by a chipper Kristin Chenoweth and a droll star Jim Parsons, who is about to star in a Broadway revival of the comedy Harvey – were such nominees as Andrew Garfield, Cynthia Nixon, Philip Seymour Hoffman, James Earl Jones, Stockard Channing, Linda Lavin, John Lithgow and Frank Langella.

Emma Stone Compares Kissing Ryan Gosling to Andrew Garfield

In last year's Crazy Stupid Love, Emma Stone's character prepped for a kissing scene with Ryan Gosling with the memorable line, "It's like you're Photoshopped!"

So how did making out with Gosling, 31, measure up to Stone's love scenes with Andrew Garfield, 28, her real-life boyfriend and costar in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man?

"Apples and oranges, you know," Stone, 23, coyly told Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, when asked which one was the better kisser.
