The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Director Marc Webb tweeted a fiery photo from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which he described with the caption: "Day 45. This is what happens when you try to give Electro a ticket." Jamie Foxx plays the villainous Electro opposite Andrew Garfield as the heroic Peter Parker. The movie also stars Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley and Dane DeHaan, and is due for release on May 2, 2014. [Twitter via SuperHero Hype]

Django Unchained: Hollywood studios have become increasingly willing to adjust their films so as to qualify for distribution in China, and the latest example is Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. According to the Mainland China distributor, Tarantino is making “slight adjustments... such as tuning the blood to a darker color, or lowering the height of the splatter of blood.” The movie’s running time will evidently be the same, so none of the footage will be cut entirely; the new version opens in China tomorrow.

Ricky Stanicky: After starring in a string of movies that didn’t do so well at the box office, Jim Carrey took on supporting roles in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and the upcoming Kick-Ass 2. But he’s now confirmed that he will take on the lead role in the comedy Ricky Stanicky. He will team once again with Steve Oedekerk, who worked with him on the TV show In Living Color and directed him to success in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. [Deadline]

Java Heat Trailer: Due for release on May 10, Java Heat reteams Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga) and Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), who previously appeared together in Immortals; this time it's an action thriller set in Indonesia. The first trailer has been released, and it features plenty of bullets, explosions, unusual accents and Rourke firing a machine gun. [The Film Stage]
