    UGH. James Franco looked like he had a disease in that movie, his face was so messed up.

  • derp

    @sam: That is his normal face, he was never a good looking man

    @sam: I agree, he isn’t handsome like he was during the early 2000s when Spider-Man came out.
    He honestly looks terrible for 34. He could look very handsome if he cleaned up more. His choice in movie roles have also worsened.

    This is stupid. It’s March all the biggest block busting money making films won’t be out till Memorial Day and the summer..Has Star Trek been released or IronMan 3..this is like saying a film making $50 Million in the first week of January is the highest grossing film of 2013…should that statement wait till December 31 calculate the highest grossing film of 2013?
    and btw I saw the film online it’s a kid’s movie but the acting was Twilight level.

    Sadly it is shaping up to be another crummy year for movies although I have seen trailers for one or two that look interesting. Will almost never see sequels or remakes (OK Toy Story and Shrek were exceptions to my general rule.

    Highest grossing of 2013? Well we’re only in March, and it must have been a rather lacklustre start to the year if this is the highest grossing so far.
    Wait until “Catching Fire” and “Man of Steel” comes out…that’ll put them in their place.
