Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may be a bust (the newly revamped version pretty much does away with Arachne, the role Filipina American actress T.V. Carpio was to play), but we’re betting the new Sony Pictures film The Amazing Spider-Man, starring cutie Andrew Garfield and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder, the Proto-Goblin, is gonna be the bomb. You’ll have to wait till next summer to see it, but check out the teaser trailer now.
My poor husband. This summer’s been filled with must-see’s for me, from Sex and the City 2 to the documentary Babies, and now my guilty pleasure, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is finally coming out!
Thank goodness there’s a film opening tomorrow that he might actually like (and that I’d be willing to see!). Grown Ups features a heavyweight comedy cast, including Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and Filipino-Jewish American Rob Schneider.
We ran into Chinese American actress Di Quon, whom we’ve featured in Audrey, late last year and she told us about her role as Rita in the film. She said it was amazing to be in a scene standing there between these legendary comic geniuses. Can’t wait to see her in the film!
Another Asian American making an appearance is former Audrey cover girl Jamie Chung. The Korean American actress stars as Amber Hilliard in the film.
Grown Ups opens tomorrow, June 25.
What do you think? With a cast like that, will it be a hit? Or a flop?
