One of the greatest strengths of Marc Webb's maybe-too-soon reboot is an opportunity to recast the roles from Sam Raimi's trilogy with a truly impressive ensemble. Like many of the best superhero movies today, "The Amazing Spider-Man" attracted some major talents, so in honor of that film's release, we're taking a look back at each cast member's best movie.

Andrew Garfield - "Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1980"
Though he primarily appears in the first film of the trilogy, Garfield kicks off the "Red Riding" series with a lead role in the strongest entry. In "1980," the actor dons his almost forgotten English accent as Eddie Dunford, crack journo from the north country, who is just about the only man daring enough to investigate the case of disappearing children. The entire series is worth watching, but Garfield really stands out here.

Emma Stone - "Superbad"
The role that started it all and the one that set the tone for her cool, sarcastic persona, "Superbad" announced the arrival of Emma Stone. As Jules, Stone's character is the impetus for all of the mayhem that goes down between Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, and in a few short scenes, she demonstrates why she has become one of the most likable actresses in working in Hollywood.

In many respects, Spider-Man makes for a great role model. "With great power comes great responsibility" is a mantra to live by in your everyday life. But when it comes to dating advice, the wall-crawler should not be the first person you look to.

In the latest episode of After Hours, MTV News' Josh Horowitz walks through the life lessons learned from "The Amazing Spider-Man" with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone to see if any of it is applicable to the dating world.

Some takeaways: girls love it when you randomly appear at their windows. Taking secret pictures of them, however, is frowned upon.

And fellas, just remember what Andrew Garfield says. It is your duty to aim your web accurately.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" hits theaters July 3.

Like a good friend, Christopher Nolan and his wife, Emma Thompson, will be listed as executive producers for former DP Wally Pfister's first film as a director. Hopefully, that should attract some big attention to the cinematographer's debut.

Doctor Who

The wizarding world of "Harry Potter" and the Whoverse are about to collide. "Deathly Hallows" director David Yates has announced his partnership with BBC to direct a big-screen take on "Doctor Who," the long-running British television series about the sci-fi exploits of the Time Lord. Yates says the movie has no writers as of yet, is two to three years from beginning production, and will have little to nothing to do with the "Who" continuity that's come before. Get all the details here.

With actors like Andrew Garfield, Chloe Moretz and Olivia Wilde such a large part of our movie culture at this point in 2011, it's hard to believe that they were technically new mainstream stars at this time last year.

Olivia Wilde, "Tron: Legacy"

You can't have a strong movie without a strong script (unless you're some weird kind of moviemaking magician that we've yet to come across), and thankfully, there were plenty of powerful scripts that made it to the big-screen this year—with plenty of dynamite dialogue to boot.

Luckily for us, the decision falls upon you guys! Read on for the full list of the Best Line From A Movie contenders, and cast your vote for the winner today!

Robert PattinsonSome of Hollywood's most popular young actors are about to become the stars of the latest anime-to-movie sensation.

The upcoming live-action remake of "Akira" is coming together for its planned August start date, and Splash Page reports on a list of actors who've allegedly received the script: Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield and James McAvoy are just some of the names reportedly in contention for roles. Casting is far from finalized, however, so we'll have to wait and see how this one shakes out.

We have more news past the jump, including who might end up directing "Cleopatra," which horror writer might be penning a "The Walking Dead" episode and what ever happened to Brad Pitt's "World War Z" adaptation.

By Ryan J. Downey

With all of the early morning celebrating surely going on in Hollywood from folks like Javier Bardem ("Biutiful") and Michelle Williams ("Blue Valentine") after the Oscar nominations were announced, there are surely several other folks whose disappointment very likely sent them straight back to bed in their PJs.

Mila Kunis earned Best Supporting Actress nominations at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards for "Black Swan," generally a great indicator in the race for Oscar gold, but was left in the cold today as the 2011 Academy Award Nominations were announced in Beverly Hills by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Who else was snubbed?
