“The Amazing Spider-Man” unveils its latest trailer!


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: When Sony decided not to air any “Amazing Spider-Man” footage during Sunday’s Super Bowl, fans wondered how long we’d have to wait to get a decent look at footage from the anticipated summer blockbuster.

As it turns out, the wait was much shorter than we anticipated … and that’s a great thing.

The studio on Monday held special screenings in 15 major markets around the globe, teasing a “Spider-Man” sizzle reel that showed off Peter Parker’s sarcastic sense of humor and gave fans their first look at The Lizard, the new villain played by Rhys Ifans.

Couldn’t make it to the invitation-only screenings? No worries. Sony has you covered. They just dropped the latest full trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” We have it for you below:

I love it. Love, love, love it. Andrew Garfield nails the wise-ass tone of young Peter. The swinging effects look great. The Lizard could look a little more like the comics, with a pointy snout instead of the rounded head that Ifans seems to be sporting. But Peter’s line, about having to stop Lizard because he helped create him, suggests the “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” lesson of Stan Lee’s Spider-Man books.

If I had one complaint, it’s that Garfield doesn’t appear to be wearing his mask in the trailer’s final, eye-popping shot of the Oscorp roof collapsing. Why oh why do they keep making Spider-Man take his mask off in the concluding battles?! It was a MAJOR problem with the Raimi films, and Webb didn’t seem to learn the lesson.

The rest, however, looks fantastic. I think they figured out Spider-Man. Again. We’ll find out on July 3, when “The Amazing Spider-Man” opens everywhere in 2D and 3D.
