This Week's Cover: 'The Amazing Spider-Man' heads up your Summer Must List

ew12091210-cover_300.jpg

A lot of people will tell you that summer is the time to head outside and enjoy Mother Nature. We say, nonsense! Why would you want to mess with the heat and all those ants when you could be sitting in an air-conditioned IMAX theater on July 3, when The Amazing Spider-Man opens? Speaking of Spidey, Marvel’s web-slinging superhero swings his way to the top of our annual Summer Must List issue — your essential guide to all of the best movies, TV, music, and books of the season.

If you notice something different about the masked man on our cover, you’re not alone. Since we last saw him in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, Peter Parker & Co. have undergone some major changes. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Sam Raimi are gone (thanks for the memories, guys!); Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Marc Webb are in (the pressure’s on, guys!). In our early look at one of this summer’s most feverishly anticipated tentpoles, we get all of the inside scoop from Garfield, Stone, Webb, and Rhys Ifans — who plays Spidey’s latest onscreen nemesis, Dr. Curt Connors, a.k.a. The Lizard. READ FULL STORY

Andrew Garfield explains that weird 'Spider-Man' video

A video surfaced Friday of The Amazing Spider-Man costars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone doing a bizarre musical promo for their film, complete with a German exclamation at the end. When asked by Vulture about the ignominious 14 seconds, Garfield marveled, “Is that online? That’s hilarious!” Below, watch the original sing-a-wrong and find out exactly what was going through Garfield and Stone’s heads to inspire the weirdness. READ FULL STORY

Emma Stone, Paul Rudd, James Woods, and Lena Dunham will read 'The Apartment' for Jason Reitman

Jason Reitman’s popular Live Read series is based on a simple equation: Take a screenplay, hand it to a smattering of actors running the gamut from “high-profile” to “awesome emeritus” to “internet famous,” and watch the sparks fly.

Tomorrow, Reitman expands the franchise to New York with a staged reading of The Apartment, and the cast he announced  via Twitter should bring the Billy Wilder/I.A.L. Diamond to life splendidly. Paul Rudd and Emma Stone will take over from Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in the lead roles. Even better, James Woods will play Sheldrake, the sleazy exec originally incarnated by Fred MacMurray. Other cast members include Cara Buono (Mad Men‘s Faye), Tom Cavanaugh (Ed’s Ed), and Lena Dunham (Lena Dunham’s Lena Dunham.) Comedy dudes Jason Sudeikis and David Wain are participating, too!

Kiss and tell! Ellen asks Emma Stone to choose between Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield -- VIDEO

In case you forgot that she has puckered up to both Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield in the last year, Emma Stone visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and was asked who was the better kisser. Said Stone, “Apples and oranges, you know?” No, we don’t, Emma. Please elaborate. It was a sexy Sophie’s Choice, really: Her real-life boyfriend, who plays a superhero or the real-life superhero who played her boyfriend. See how she answered below. READ FULL STORY

Octavia Spencer, Paula Patton, and more honored at 'Essence' Magazine's Black Women in Hollywood luncheon

Though the starlets walking the red carpet at Essence magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon brought plenty of the previously promised pre-Oscar glam, it was solidarity and sisterly support that took center stage at the main event. “It’s really just a girl power luncheon,” said former Friday Night Lights star Jurnee Smollett. “It’s an opportunity for all of us to celebrate each other, and give each other a bunch of hugs. We say, ‘I love your work, continue what you’re doing, and I’m supporting you.'”

EW was on the scene as Octavia Spencer, Paula Patton, Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and Pam Grier were honored for their various achievements at the fifth annual luncheon, which also boasted a Whitney Houston tribute led by her Sparkle costar, Jordin Sparks.

Emma Stone's eyes have really done it this time

Every time I see Emma Stone’s new Revlon commercial, I think to myself, this is it, this HAS to be the time she’ll crack herself up and let us know how ridiculous she KNOWS it is that she’s showing us how to apply Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup. Moments later, I’m left in a trance, unable to focus on anything except how slowly and tenderly I would caress my translucent skin if I, too, were a beautiful green-eyed vampire. What day is it? How long have I been out? Where is my magical pot of beige-speckled goo? READ FULL STORY

'Angelina, could you pass the salt?': Who would YOU want at your 2012 Golden Globes table?

While the Golden Globes are Hollywood’s most star-studded event, it’s actually the event planners who hold the real power in the room because they get to design the seating chart. Then again, it’s mostly a paint-by-numbers job since tradition dictates that casts are lumped together. What’s the fun in that? We’re turning it over to you, PopWatchers. If you could be lucky enough to attend the Globes tomorrow night, who would you like to have at your table?

Golden Globes fashion: Will Charlize Theron reclaim her crown?

There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to Sunday’s Golden Globes: the awards, the gags, the acceptance speeches. But my attention is firmly focused on the red carpet fashion, particularly because this year marks the return of Charlize Theron and her chic wardrobe.

While, in the past few years, stars like Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Mila Kunis have owned the red carpet (and rightfully so), Charlize was the reigning fashionista back before they started topping best dressed lists left and right. And now, thanks to her performance in Young Adult, she’s back and hopefully, ready to reclaim her title.

If you need a refresher of just how fabulous Charlize has proven to be on the red carpet, check out her bold Vera Wang gown from the 2000 Oscars or her shimmering Gucci number from the 2004 awards (both pictured below): READ FULL STORY

'Saturday Night Live' host poll: Thanks for playing, Charles Barkley?

In basketball terms, this week’s Saturday Night Live with NBA icon and Weight Watchers spokesperson Charles Barkley may have been a brick. But perhaps the convivial Less-Round Mound of Rebound deserves the benefit of being graded on a curve. After all, even though this was his third time hosting, he’s still more famous for delivering forearms and clutch jumpers, not punchlines. So maybe he gets some extra credit for playing Shaquille O’Neal in a parody of their NBA studio show — even if it wasn’t nearly as funny as the actual thing — for both breaking up with and hoisting up wee Paul Brittain, and for truly buying into the late great Dongfather character. Maybe.

Even with some generous reviews, however, Barkley has his hands full in the latest week of voting for our Saturday Night Liveliest Host contest. Performance aside, he’s also in the unenviable position of following the warmly-embraced holiday-themed episode with Jimmy Fallon. The SNL alum scored an unprecedented 81.0 percent of the vote in our most recent poll. Melissa McCarthy placed a distant second (14.8 percent) after dominating the competition most of the fall. Jason Segel (2.0 percent) edged Emma Stone (1.8 percent) for third place, and Katy Perry was retired.

Below, I’ve embedded one clip for each of the five surviving hosts, as reminders of their recent performances. Vote below, and the host with the least popular support will be sent packing, and the other four will advance to compete against Daniel Radcliffe on Jan. 14. Ultimately, we’ll crown the Saturday Night Liveliest host at the end of the season. Watch and vote below. READ FULL STORY
