The 1000th Film
The wait is finally over as yet another milestone is reached. The 1000th film to be posted on otsoNY is the 2014 superhero film, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx.
There were several films considered for such a momentous moment in the history of otsoNY. First on the nomination list was “The Eddy Duchin Story”, which followed the rise to stardom of a young musician who he travels to New York in the 1930s to take a job playing piano for bandleader Leo Reisman's orchestra. Shot in black and white, this true story captured the beautiful New York architectural of the 1950s and gave reference to the highs and lows of the famous piano player.
“The Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo DiCaprio was also considered, but eventually became the runner-up and was posted as the 999th film.
With the recent sad passing of Robin Williams, “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” was considered as a tribute to the legendary actor who had previously starred in 13 New York based films. Titles such as “The Fisher King”, “House of D”, “August Rush”, “Deconstructing Harry” and “Awakenings” had helped to showcase the true diverse talents of his acting abilities. But it has since been decided that there will be a special look-back at the great work of Robin Williams which will be posted in conjunction with the film locations from “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.”
Today’s cinema audiences know New York City for the many superheroes that swing and fly between the skyscrapers, and so it made perfect sense to turn our focus on the sequel to “The Amazing Spider-Man”, a film that was entirely shot in the New York State and has since become the largest film production ever in New York City. It is also perfect timing as the official release date for the DVD was this week.
Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man and this time has to face the powerful Max Dillon played by Jamie Foxx, after he is transformed into living electricity by an industrial accident. Having sworn to keep his girlfriend Gwen Stacy, Peter struggles with their relationship, but Gwen is determined not to let him make decisions for her.
Film locations include Brooklyn, Chinatown, 8th Avenue, Union Square, Park Avenue and Times Square.
