The brand new trailer for the Marc Webb directed THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has finally hit the internet and will be in theaters tomorrow in front of Marvel’s THE AVENGERS here in the USA. I could go on and on about how much I like the trailer and how, in a summer full of some heavy hitting comic-book movies (I’m looking at you THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and the aforementioned Marvel’s THE AVENGERS), this reboot actually looks like it won’t be swept under the rug due to it’s more realistic take (Raimi’s films were great, but there was a lot of campy humor, which I did enjoy….most of the time), it’s great cast, interesting villain, spectacular (see what I did there) special effects and, well, it’s frickin Spider-Man for Pete’s sake (see what I did there…Pete’s sake….Peter….Peter Parker), but let’s just be honest, you came here to see the trailer and probably aren’t that interested in what I have to say. So I say, check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments below.
I will leave you with this. Take a look at the recently released Spider-Man poster which we posted yesterday. Do you see the hidden spider symbol in the city? If you can’t see it, look over Spidey’s right shoulder (the Oscorp building is to his left). Pretty cool, huh?
So, without any further delay, here’s the latest trailer and be sure to check it out on the big screen, along with the new THE DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer tomorrow with the release of Marvel’s THE AVENGERS.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is directed by Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.
SYNOPSIS: One of the world’s most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is set to hit 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 3, 2012.
