Snapshots: Jamie Foxx as Electro in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' | Geek Alert

Since news broke a while back that Jamie Foxx would be playing Electro in the next addition to the new Spider-Man franchise - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - fans were intrigued to know what the multi-talented entertainer would look like once kitted out. Well wait no more. Freshly released images have now appeared thanks to some snapshots during filming in New York.

While fans of the comic book character Electro might be disappointed that the green and yellow has gone, looking at what they've actually done is pretty interesting. With a hagged look to him, Foxx's character now appears to sit in the same dark category that both Bane and The Joker did in the Dark Knight movies - frightening yet visually epic. With that said, could this be the introduction of the best Spider-Man movie yet?

Foxx recently sat down with BlackFilm to discuss the new image of the character:

"It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic book-y, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff."

With his hood filled with a set of bioluminescent blue lights, Foxx's face offered a glistening ice effect that will surely look even better once the film is complete and put on the big screen. Take a look at the images below for a more in-depth look.

White House Down | Film Trailer

White-House-Down

The first trailer for White House Down has been unleashed. The latest film from Independance Day director Roland Emmerich stars Channing Tatum as an off-duty cop that has to save the President (Jamie Foxx) when a paramillitary group takes hold of the White House.

While the trailer is certainly action-filled I have to wonder if it'll be enough to capture the attention of potential viewers, not just because the next few months have a number of big films on the way, but because Olympus Has Fallen, the Antoine Fuqua-directed film that stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman is also a White House thriller, and hits UK cinemas next month.

White House Down also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, James Woods and Lance Reddick, opens on September 6. Check out the trailer below.


Jamie Foxx adds his voice to Trayvon Martin vigil in NYC [Video]

It's hard to believe that a year has passed since the heartbreaking shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida. The circus that descended in its aftermath in some part overshadowed the grim reality that a young man lost his life. The rally that was held in New York City in some part hoped to bring that truth back to the front of people's minds as an estimated over 200 people attended Martin's vigil, many in the hoodies that have become a symbol of the effort, including Trayvon's parents and singer Jamie Foxx.

During the emotional outing, Jamie addressed the audience as well as the parents with heartfelt words and ended with a short rendition of "No Weapon".

The full comments and vocals are available below via NowThisIsNews.

Jamie Foxx on 'Oprah's Next Chapter' (Pt.1) | TV Catch-Up

Shortly before hosting Saturday Night Live for the second time, actor, stand-up comedian and singer Jamie Foxx sat down with Oprah Winfrey in NYC for the latest episode of Oprah's Next Chapter.

The first part of the episode sees the Django Unchained actor give one of his most intimate and revealing interviews yet, as he discusses near enough every aspect of his life, from the grandmother who raised him, to his first love (music), to being told his acting "stinked" by Oliver Stone.

Later on Jamie talks about his bachelor status, and says he feels he's not "built for marriage". Explaining this somewhat depressing statement, he says he'd been put off by the unhappy experience of friends and family, not to mention his own "catastrophic" memory of heartbreak as a young man.

Towards the end, Jamie's 18 year-old daughter Corinne joins him and Jamie plays some piano for his host at Soho House. Part Two, which will feature Corinne more extensively, airs in the U.S on the 23rd December.

Check out Part One for yourself below:


Ne-Yo, 2 Chainz x Jamie Foxx perform on Saturday Night Live | TV Catch-Up

With Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx playing host for the second time, The Source's "Man of the Year" 2 Chainz and R&B star  Ne-Yo turned out to perform on Saturday Night Live last night (8th November).

Ne-Yo appeared as the show's special guest performer, giving an impressive showcase of his vocal skills and dance talents with two tracks from his R.E.D. album. First he channelled his best Michael Jackson impression for a superbly-choreographed rendition of his UK summer No.1. "Let Me Love You", then he came back to deliver the slower, gentler "She Is", backed only by piano and acoustic guitar (and no Tim McGraw, who is featured on the album version).

And then, just to change the mood again, 2 Chainz, came out during Jamie Foxx's musical melody and the two (him and Foxx) performed "Birthday Song" together. The man we previously called Tity Boi was recently nominated for a Grammy for his best-selling album Based on a T.R.U Story, so there's plenty to celebrate.


John Legend - "Who Did That To You" | New Music

We recently heard Rick Ross' "100 Black Coffins", one of the tracks from the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained feature film, and, as you might have expected, it was big blast of murder music from MMG's main man.

Grammy Award-winning R&B artist John Legend takes it in a slightly different direction for "Who Did That To You", the latest track to be leaked from the OST. Whilst his lyrics continue the dark theme, "Who Did That To You" definitely sounds like the musical background for a new sort of American epic. For that reason, I'm not surprised to learn that it was co-written and produced by Paul Epworth, who helped lend the Bond franchise a stylish update with his composition for Adele's theme.

Legend himself was eager to be involved in Tarantino's project, which sees Jamie Foxx play the part of a former slave-turned-bounty hunter, trying to rescue his wife from the plantations. Speaking to the L.A. Times, Legend commented:

When I first learned that Quentin was making Django Unchained—a film set in the South two years before the Civil War—I felt a strong connection to the story. I knew that I wanted to compose a song for this film; a song that would not only give voice to Django, a man willing to stand up and fight for his lover’s honor, but also feel like a natural fit in a Tarantino film.”

The full soundtrack album will drop December 18th, with the film to follow on Christmas Day. Have a listen to "Who Did That To You" below:

Rick Ross - "100 Black Coffins" | New Music

When Quentin Tarantino unveiled the final trailer for his forthcoming film Django Unchained yesterday, to my greatest surprise it featured music from Rick Ross. Whilst MMG's Bawse is undoubtedly one of the rap game's most successful method actors, let's put it this way, I didn't exactly see him and Tarantino as a natural match.

Anyway, today we have the full track from the trailer, a death dealing slice of hip hop entitled "100 Black Coffins" helmed by Rozay and produced by Jamie Foxx, who also stars in the historical action epic alongside Leonardo Di Caprio and Samuel L. Jackson. The film tells the story of a slave-turned-bounty hunter setting to rescue his wife from a Mississippi plantation, and here we get the full bounty hunter sound, as Foxx serves up a truly epic, Western influenced instrumental for Ross to murder.

Django Unchained drops on Christmas Day. Have a listen to "100 Black Coffins" below and scroll down for the new trailer.

Django Unchained full trailer unveiled | Film News

The wait is over - the full length trailer for Quentin Tarantino's slavery western is finally here.

Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained  is another installment of the Pulp Fiction director's violent period pieces; a revisionist fantasy in the  mould of Inglorious Basterds, only, instead of hunting down anti-semitic Nazis, the director's heroes take down the bigots of the American slavocracy; the slave-owning, slave trading villains of the plantation.

Bold, funny, and bloody, the film's newly released trailer offers a delicious slice of what's to come, watering the mouths of movie lovers far and wide.

The history books have made legends of some rebellious slaves who stood up to their masters, rising up and revolting against the industry of slavery. We've been told the stories of Nat Turner, Gullah Jack and Tacky. In Jamie Foxx's Django, the madcap Tarantino may just have created a popular apocryphal hero, no doubt inspired by the Turners and Jacks, to cheer on.

Foxx looks as impressive as ever, portraying the recalcitrant Django with a steely cool that should dazzle audiences. The Ray and Collateral star's performance is just one of many to revel in,  with DiCaprio and Waltz also catching the eye; looking to steal the show. Django Unchained really does appear to be off the chain.

As DiCaprio's coconut juice sipping slaveowner says:

"You had my curiousity, but now you have my attention"

Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' teaser unveiled | Film News

Quentin Tarantino movies excite like no other. With a résumé that reels off grand, defining, genre-bending titles like Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Inglorious Basterds and the Kill Bill trilogy, it's almost certainly just as true that Quentin Tarantino movies entertain like no other as well.

The quality of the director's work, the humour of his films, their originality, cinematic beauty and mischievous playfulness were made for the big-screen experience. In Django Unchained -- the long-awaited slavery spaghetti western -- the eccentric filmmaker melds all the qualities of his popular and acclaimed films to create more movie gold, this time tackling the villains of the American plantation.

To clear some of the mystery from the air, late last night (April 12) Sony Pictures released the teaser poster and official synopsis for the film, detailing a plot that only Tarantino could have come up with.
