A new Amazing Spider-Man trailer previewed during Monday night’s season premiere of America’s Got Talent on NBC. The extended, four-minute-long trailer previewed new footage, including a death-defying rescue of cars plummeting from a bridge and one little boy inside a burning mini-van.
We got to see a lot of Lizard (Rhys Ifans), the major villain from this new installment of Spider-Man films, plus more of Mary Jane (Emma Stone). Oh yeah, and some kind of biological attack on New York City.
Last night (May 14) Andrew Garfield presented an award to Mike Nichols at the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards at Angus McIndoe in New York City.

After a successful run run on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Glee’s golden boy, Darren Criss, was been tapped to host the 13th-annual Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in New York which took place last night.
On Glee, Darren and Matt Bomer performed a rendition of Gotye’s runaway hit song “Somebody That I Used to Know” on April 10th’s episode, they weren’t quite expecting a diss from Gotye himself.
HLNs Showbiz Tonight reports that in the wake of the performance, Gotye commented to The Sunday Mail saying that the Glee version was “dinky and wrong.”
However, Criss and Bomer have responded no less than graciously to the singer’s views on their duet version of the song. On the red carpet of the Met Costume Institute Gala this past Monday night, Criss said, “That’s a common example of the media running away with something I think was completely harmless.” Read More »
On anyone else, this bold striped dress wouldn’t work. For some reason – be it the hair, teeth or smile – this frock just works on Chicago star Christie Brinkley. The former model is currently promoting her turn as Roxie Hart in the Broadway play, which is going on national tour.
“I thought about it and realized I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life wondering if I could have done it,” Brinkley said about going on stage, according to the North County Times. I asked for the script and the CD. I thought the script was so fresh and relevant, so I asked if I could audition. When they told me they’d be honored to have me play the role, I was stunned.”
Brinkley met up with Extra host Maria Menounos to talk shop and show off that gorgeous figure. Brinkley started her career in Paris, after a photographer discovered her and suggested she should get into the business. Thirty years later, here she is. Read More »

The Broadway show Evita, who won seven Tony Awards back in 1979, is back at the Marquis Theatre! In case you don’t know, this Broadway hit made the song “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” very famous.
This version has Ricky Martin taking on the role of Che and critics are saying he’s “fabulous”. Martin has a great singing voice and a confident presence on stage. His co-star Elena Roger also has a strong voice, but will never be able to replace the iconic performance by her precedent Patti LuPone, who made that role hers.
All in all the show is a good one, but will need to exceed magnificence if it is to out-do the original! Meanwhile, the latin singer and his mustache promoted the Broadway show on Today yesterday where he and his cast-mate performed in Times Square.

Evita has returned to the New York stage for the first time in over 30 years, with a re-imagining on Broadway. The production stars Ricky Martin as Che, alongside Elena Roger as Eva and Michael Servers as Juan.
Ricky is thrilled at the unusual casting: “I am very thankful, a lot of gratitude because of the people that I am working with, the past, directors, producers, choreographers, people that are guiding me in such a beautiful way and I am just allowing myself to be loved and cared for by an amazing audience every night.
“And it’s been amazing, I’m honored to be back – as part of the Broadway community.”
Martin commands the stage with an air of confidence, yet the Latin superstar admits to being self-conscious at times. Read More »
