First Look at Andrew Garfield in Costume as New Spider-Man!

It's here! After much arguing, debating, and waiting, we finally have our very first official look at Andrew Garfield in costume as Spider-Man in the new reboot of the superhero franchise being directed by 500 Days of Summer's Marc Webb. The photo was officially unveiled by Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures testerday via Deadline (Thanks to MMDB reader Helder Chamba for the heads up ), meaning this starts their massive two-year marketing process, as the new Spider-Man won't arrive in theaters until July 3rd, 2012.  But with that said, it's an exciting and intriguing first reveal, and  one that I'm sure a lot of you guys might actually like. But what is he  wearing?! View the photo below!

Kung Fu Panda 2's Epic Banner of Awesomeness + Posters

It really is going to be a year of awesomeness! (If you can't tell, I'm being hyperbolic for most of this post.) I was browsing IMPAwards today and noticed this awesome new banner for DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 2. Now that Shrek Forever After and Megamind are out of the way, this is their focus for 2011, hence the TV spots airing five months early proclaiming it to be the "Year of Awesomeness!" I just love how beautiful wide this banner is  and how totally freakin' cool it looks having all six of the uh, Furious Five, flying down from above ready to kick some ass. It just looks awesome!

New Ice Age 4 Teaser Short 'Scrat's Continental Crack-Up'

Damn, can you believe it, we're already to the fourth Ice Age? I haven't been keeping up with the series even though I love the first one, but yes indeed, hitting theaters in summer 2012 is Ice Age: Continental Drift, with those same pack of prehistoric creatures back again. As always, Fox loves to tease each one with one of their animated shorts starring the squirrel Scrat. Fox just released a brand new one on Apple titled Scrat's Continental Crack-Up that you gotta see. I know Peter from /Film calls these the Looney Tunes of today and they're very fun, even on the fourth go around... or is it the sixth? How many times have we seen Scrat?

Quentin Tarantino Unveils His Top 20 of 2010

Though we're now a few days into 2011, that doesn't mean we can't continue to looking back at 2010. That includes featuring more Best of lists, like this one - filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's Favorite Movies of 2010. He starts naming 11... then continues on to feature 20 total, so that's what I've posted below, courtesy of the The Tarantino Archives. It's a good, fun list that will definitely spark some debate, especially because Toy Story 3 is #1 and that's followed by odd choices like Tangled (which I also loved), Cyrus, Knight & Day (what the heck?!?), Get Him To The Greek, Robin Hood and many more. Read on for his full list!

The Top 10 Highest Grossing Movies from 2010!

No matter how many times we cry about wanting original stories, less sequels and more bold motion pictures, the films that earn the most money at the box office seem to indicate other desires from audiences worldwide. Nearly every movie included in the ten biggest earners of 2010 is either a sequel in an established franchise or an adaptation of a book or series of books, and one remake. Only two original films cracked the Top 10, and you probably already know one. See the full Top 10 list below!

Happy New Year from My Movie Database

Happy New Year! Yet another year has come and gone but it only means bigger and better things are yet to come. As I look back on 2010, I'm already amazed at how far we've come in such a short amount of time and I can't go without thanking all you, my readers, for helping me get to this point. It's still unbelievable that MyMovies Database is barely over 3 years old but that means with every year new we continue to grow immensely. We're still just beginning and I've already got some exciting things planned for 2011. 

So here's to another great year of success and, of course, great movies!
