The term “jaw-dropping” gets thrown around a lot when talking about films. But how many trailers do you recall that you think deserved to be called the same? Today we have the second full trailer for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man and I think it is totally jaw-dropping!! Many, many people were curious to see how anyone would top the Raimi films (putting aside the fact that this series reboot was started so insultingly soon after Spider-Man 3) but this trailer should find all naysayers, myself included, picking their chins off the floor. Enjoy!!
Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parker along with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy (fun fact: she’s the second red-head to do so), Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Uncle Ben and Aunt May and finally Rhys Ifans as the villain The Lizard. Man, I still feel sorry for Dylan Baker but Ifans looks like he’d be the better baddie any day of the week.
Anyway, as good as this looks it’s still got a tough road ahead with The Dark Knight Rises hitting theaters just two weeks later. Whether you’re a die hard Raimi/Maguire fan or are willing to see how some new blood fares in the famous red and blue unitard you can’t say the trailer doesn’t look exciting. Amirite??
Marc Webb’s comic book actioner The Amazing Spider-Man will swing into theeaters this Summer on July 3rd, 2012. Will you be there??
