Looks like our luck with The Avengers will continue as The Amazing Spider-Man releases in India days before it hits theatres in the US.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and Irrfan Khan, Spidey will cast its web in Indian theatres on 29 June (it releases in the US on 3 July). But before that, we have a meeting with the secret agents. Men In Black 3 will release in India on 25 May.
Also in the pipeline is the remake of the 1991 action film Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel (3 August). There’s also Adam Sandler’s comedy That’s My Boy, Joseph Gordon Levitt action film Premium Rush, Resident Evil: Retribution (14 September), Here Comes The Boom starring Kevin James and Salma Hayek and the 3D animated film Hotel Transylvania starring Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez. Drawing the curtains on the year will be Bond’s Skyfall (2 November) and Sparkle, featuring the last film appearance of the late Whitney Houston.
“After completing 75 years as a studio in India, 31 of which I have personally been part of, I can say without a doubt that this is our biggest and most exciting line-up ever with tried and tested record-breaking performance at the Indian box office,” said Kercy Daruwala, Managing Director – Sony Pictures India.
Commenting on the advance of the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man, he said, “Each of the Spider-Man franchise films has broken records on its release in this territory. We are very confident that Indian audiences will enjoy the new reboot of the franchise even more because they are watching it before the US and also as this film has an India connect.”
