This 4 minute long preview gives us our best look get of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man.
It begins with one of the action scenes (we see hints of Rhys Ifan’s as the Lizard) and shows why Andrew Garfield makes a great Peter Parker and Spider-Man. His actions saving the boy in the car are just brilliant. We also get to see C.Thomas Howell in his small role.
The film looks good, but I am not sure if some of the bits on the bridge seem a bit fake or have that CGI sheen. I am sure it will look a lot better on the big screen.
It then goes into a montage of scenes. Some are new and some are from previous trailers.
All in all I am impressed with what I have seen and I do like Garfield’s scrawny, lanky look which is more in keeping with the comic book version of Spider-Man that I enjoy.
What are your thoughts after watching the preview?
“The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally 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 (Emma 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 (Rhys 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 out in 3D on 3rd July.
There are also a couple of new international posters.
