Official trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN hits
Another day, another huge teaser trailer for a hugely anticipated comic book-based, action-packed tentpole project. This time, instead of the brooding badassery of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, we finally have our first glimpse at the upcoming Marc Webb film, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (via Youtube), and I must say, it definitely looks intriguing.
The film stars a top-notch cast led by Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker himself, and rounded out by Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Dennis Leary. Following the story of the origin of Spider-Man, the film is Sony’s attempt to reboot one of, if not their biggest cash cow franchise. As mentioned above, it’s helmed by 500 DAYS OF SUMMER director Marc Webb, and appears to be a really solid, if not that all inventive a take on the character.
Overall, I think this teaser really works. It doesn’t seem like they are re-inventing the wheel here, but the studio and Webb are at least giving us a semi-new narrative to chew on. e finally get our Dr. Connors, aka The Lizard, storyline, Gwen Stacy plays the love interest, and how do you get any better than Sally Field as Aunt May?
The film hits next year, and will likely play a huge part in this week’s Comic-Con shindig.
