We've been seeing a lot of stuff recently for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, and we've got a couple new TV spots to show you that have a decent amount of great new footage. I think they did a great job of capturing the way Spider-Man moves, the trailers have showed off some pretty cool iconic shots.
Each of the spots are pretty action packed, and they show more of the ruthlessness of The Lizard. Studios are really starting to show a lot more footage from their movies in the trailers and spots they are releasing. The Avengers, Prometheus and Spider-Man are among several films where I think the studios showed way too much. Next thing you know they'll be showing us the last 5 minutes of the movie.
The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released on July 3rd. Do you think studios should cut back on the footage being shown, or do you enjoy seeing all that stuff before watching the movie in theaters?
Check out the synopsis:
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.
