Sony Pictures has released a new IMAX TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man, and a new behind the scenes featurette that focuses on Oscorp. Even though the film has been getting mixed reviews my excitement for it remains strong. Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters, and everything I've seen so far has been pretty damn cool.
The Marc Webb directed movie opens up on July 3rd, and it stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, and Campbell Scott.
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.
