The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to live up to its name at the box office this weekend, raking in $92 million in what analysts are nevertheless calling a disappointing debut.

Life After Spartacus: Starz Plans Action-Packed Genre Lineup

Spartacus: Vengeance

It's "better to leave people wanting more than to risk repeating ourselves and diminish" the power of the Spartacus franchise, Starz president Chris Albrecht told the Television Critics Association at Thursday's fall previews.

Albrecht noted that going into Season 2, when "the rebels were in the hills and the Romans were in the towns" the show had to tell "two distinct stories, which is not the best." So instead of detailing another battle, another argument ad nauseum, it was decided the series would end in a big way with one more season: Spartacus: War of the Damned, which premieres in January 2013.
