Check out The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer

Let the countdown to the new Spider-Man film begin… On the 25th of April, the film will release in South African cinema. (If you’re in the US, you’ll have to wait until the 2nd of May).  Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return once again and youll also get to see the ever cool, Jamie Foxx too.

You can watch the official trailer above. Check out the synopsis below:

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).  For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).  But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.  With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Bonang secures a deal with Revlon

BonangAdvert[4]

Much respect goes out to the incredible, Bonang Matheba. She is by far the biggest celebrity in South Africa. She’s done it all, radio, TV, web, print. Brands continue to use her to grow their respective brands and in turn, the Bonang brand continues to grow bigger, better and brighter. It’s incredible to watch such a young, talented woman score all these major deals and accolades and the latest one she can add to her name is with beauty house Revlon. Matheba was named as the South African ambassador yesterday, joining the likes of Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde.

Big up to Matheba! See the full press release below:

2013 Oscar nominations out today

Awards seasons rolls on. Today we found out who and which films will score nominations for this year’s Academy Awards. The nominations will be hosted by actress Emma Stone (who I think should host the show) and then this year’s host Seth MacFarlane.

See how Seth broke the news about him hosting the awards above.

I haven’t seen many of these films but from what I’ve seen online, these are the films I reckon will score big come 15:30 (CAT):

Argo

Les Miserables

Lincoln

Life of Pi

I know that this year’s awards will honour Bond… James Bond and the franchise, so expect some skits at the opening of MacFarlane doing some tribute to the Bond stars throughout the years. I’m sure Skyfall will also be nominated in some of the categories.

As far as the actors and actresses go, I’m not even going to attempt a guess here, but if you have any ideas, do share them.

I’ll have more on the nominations a little later.

I’ll bring you more on that on Thursday.

As far as the Globes go, I’m going to attempt to stay up, as I’ve done before to catch it live, but for you normal beings, you can catch the repeat on M-Net on Monday evening at 20:30.

The Oscars 2012 – Hugo, Christopher Plummer

http://www.oscar.com

Ben Stiller and Emma Stone are up to present the Achievement in Visual Effects. She’s very excited to be on the stage to present an award at the Oscars. She’s poking fun at all the presenters gone by in the past. Singing, doing the ever-so rehearsed antiques so many of the presenters go through every year. That was fun.

Hugo wins the award in this category.”I know it’s a huge thrill to be nominated, but it’s awesome to win. Really underrated.” The winners thanked Martin Scorsese once again.

Melissa Leo is up to present the Best Supporting Actor Award. And that award goes to… Christopher Plummer for his role in The Beginners. He is the oldest actor ever to win an Oscar. He gets a standing ovation.

Holding the Oscar in his hand he says, “You’re only two years older than me darling, where have you been all my life? I have a confession to make, when I first emerged from my mother’s womb, I was already rehearsing my Academy thank you speech. But it was so long ago, mercifully for you, I’ve forgotten it. But I haven’t forgotten who to thank. The Academy, of course, for this extraordinary honor and my fellow nominees: Kenneth, Nick, Jonah, dear Max, I’m so proud to be in your company. And of course I wouldn’t be here at all if it weren’t for Michael Mills and his enchanting film, “Beginners,” and my screen partner of course, Ewan McGregor, that superb artist, who I would happily share this award with if I had any decency, but I don’t.

To all the producers, at Olympus Films especially, Leslie Urdang and Miranda de Pencier. All the people at Focus for their tremendous generosity and support, and not to mention my, haha, little band of agents provocateurs: Lou Pitt and his wife Berta, Carter Cohn, Pippa Markham, Perry Zimel, who’ve tried so hard to keep me out of jail, my daughter Amanda who always makes me proud and lastly, my long-suffering wife, Elaine, who deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for coming to my rescue every day of my life. Thank you so much.”
