When your creating a film for a major comic book character which has already had a trilogy of films looking really tired by it’s third attempt, what can you do to intrigue cinephiles back to the franchise? Reboot it and make it a lot grittier. After 5 years since Sam Raimi’s franchise finished it was a little bit of a shock a reboot was in order for Marc Webb’s THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN but after the bumpy first trailer thankfully the second trailer made up for loss time and today we have a new trailer!
Today’s trailer is a international trailer from Japan, it does show off plenty of footage we have seen in the previous international trailer however there is some new bits of footage thrown in to make this new trailer worth 2 minutes of your precious time. It’s a lot darker, dramatic focusing on the action the film has to offer, more compelling overall a lot more solid but Spidey has a tough summer ahead with Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises looking to dominate the box office, so its good to be different but how different we’ll find out in July.
The Amazing Spiderman also stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy Peter’s love interest, Sally Fields, Martin Sheen,Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan and will be out July 4th!
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.
