“The Amazing Spider-Man” Trailer

July 20, 2011 4 comments

Well, I’ve switched from one focusing on one comic book movie to another. As some of you know, this trailer was leaked a few days ago, before being taken down more swiftly than Warner Bros. treated the “The Dark Knight Rises” bootleg. However, Columbia chose to not let it’s fans wait long for the real thing. Here is the first “Spider-Man” trailer, in all of it’s glory.

Everything looks great, withholding the ridiculously jarring and fake-looking first person action shot. I think that Andrew Garfield will do a great job as Peter Parker and the look of the film is fantastic, credit to director Marc Webb. Yet, watching this, I find myself asking, more than ever before, exactly what was the point in rebooting this, other than adding another billion dollars to the bank account. Stylistically and thematically, the film might be a little different and perhaps even a little better. Yet, neither of those two categories have changed enough to make this reinvention valid.

I suppose this debate will continue once we see a little more footage. Check out the trailer, for yourselves, below.

NEW Spider-Man Photo

There’s been a release of the first photo from Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot starring Andrew Garfield. Hate to say it, but despite it’s fantastic director (who recently garnered acclaim for “500 Days of Summer”) and wonderful lead actor (who will soon be getting an Oscar nomination for “The Social Network”), I have never been excited about this film in the least.

Gotta tell you what. This picture looks dope. From the looks of it, this film might be getting a type of “Dark Knight” type of makeover, and I’m always all for that. If something can be made darker, that’s automatically another way of making it better in my book. Bring it on.

Here’s the photo:
