Check out the new 4-minute super trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man!

May. 15, 2012by:

On last night's season premiere of "Americas Got Talent", an exclusive 4-minute "super trailer" for Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN was unveiled. And though the majority of the trailer is basically the last one we've already seen, it does open with a really good extended segment that is simply classic Spidey all the way. I've been lukewarm on what we've been shown of the film thus far, but this finally got me somewhat excited. What do you guys think?

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN opens July 3rd. Check out the trailer below or watch it in HD quality RIGHT HERE.

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.

Should have stuck to trailers, they made the movie look better.

Everything in this just reminds me how I've already seen it done much better. And the stuff that is different looks so very laughably lame.

I think the preview looks really good. As much as I liked the Raimi Spiderman movies there were a lot of things that didn't sit right with me and this movie looks like it's getting those shortcomings right. I am a little worried about what I've been hearing about Uncle Ben but I'm reserving judgement until I see the finished movie. At least when he takes his mask off in this scene he does so for a real reason to get a scared kid to trust him better. Notice he's wearing it again when he drops

The action looks good, and I like that opening, but I still can't get behind the story changes. I will probably end up seeing this just for the heck of it, but I'm skeptical. I have fond memories of Raimi's first two films, so this will be a tough sell for me.

Does anyone else get the feeling Sony Doesn't want the mass public to know that this film is a reboot?

No matter how many trailers or clips the dudes at Sony release, nothing will change that unanimous gut-reaction that practically everyone seems to be having of, "Really.. rebooting Spiderman.. already??" Even my Dad, who literally had no clue they were rebooting it, saw the latest trailer before The Avengers, and he turned to me and said, "They're re-doing that already?!" It's not that this film looks bad, heck, I think it looks pretty good, but, slight story modifications aside, it just looks

It's not that this film looks bad, heck, I think it looks pretty good, but, slight story modifications aside, it just looks too much like the first Spiderman film we all already saw, right down to the fight-on-a-bridge scene. It's all just kinda "meh" right now.

Why does this look so boring?? Maybe I am sick of reboots but still nothing about this 4 minute trailer is interesting.

To much CGI, looks to fake. But it could be ok. I'm sure it will make a lot of cash riding the coattails of the avengers.

I admit, it's hard not to get pumped...

When Spidey swinging on his web like that....But, regardless of the "too soon reboot" thing or yet another origin story to go through, the biggest negative point would have to be the changing of Parker becoming Spider-Man. To me, the strongest characteristic of Spider-Man's origin was that after all his superpowers and the super responsibilities, he's just a normal everyman kid...who got his superpowers after biten by a radioactive spider ACCIDENTALLY, which could've happen to any one of us

To me, the strongest characteristic of Spider-Man's origin was that after all his superpowers and the super responsibilities, he's just a normal everyman kid...who got his superpowers after biten by a radioactive spider ACCIDENTALLY, which could've happen to any one of us (well in comic world atleast). Thats why he's so likable, relatable and friendly, he's not some God like Alien or a reclusive moody billionaire, beneath the mask he's just one of us. Changing the accident to be NOT an accident, then he's just another "Chosen One" who's destined to become something or other, which robs him of his relatibility, everyman quality. That is to me, just total BULLSHIT.

P.S. Great to see Irrfan Khan atlast! Anyone who knows (like me) his great works in Indian films and some of his wetern movies knows who I'm talking about. Can anyone tell me what charecter he's playing? Is it just a passing role or a more significant one?

I had that initial gut reaction that this was going to be terrible but I got over it a year ago and learned to look at this movie on its own merits and am now really looking forward to it. People can bitch and moan all they want but the films here and its going to make bank. Garfield is a great actor and is going to do imo a far superior job than TM.

I can't believe how many complaints I see for this movie. If at the end of the trailer it said 'Directed by Sam Raimi' you guys would be jumping for joy screaming "OMG RAIMI, YOU WENT DARK AND GRITTY. YOU SHOULD'VE DONE THIS FOR SPIDERMAN 3, THANK YOU SO MUCH! CAN'T WAIT!" Alas, its the opposite. This looks fun, and I'm sure the movie itself will prove everyone wrong.

I'm not saying I agree with pigeonholing it as a 'dark and gritty' attempt, I'm just saying that's how people would attempt to describe it, since that was their main complaint of the handling of Spider-Man 3's 'emo' interpretation.

what the fuck? No man, I love Raimi but 'dark and gritty' just does NOT equal Spider-Man to me. It works for some things, like Batman, but SM never felt like d&g material and that's the only real major, major peeve I have about this movie right now -- it caught the [link]' disease.

We used to have a drinking game for the other 3 movies. Everytime Spiderman took off his mask or had it taken off, yu had to take a drink. I see from this preview, that the game will endure. As for the movie, I predict $200 million total domestic. Maybe 250.

So you drank maybe 8-10 times in almost a three hour period? That doesn't sound like a good drinking game.

Looks entertaining, I already like Garfield better than Maguire. Also happy to have the Lizard in a Spiderman movie, opposed to being teased it. I am curious if there will be a "cliffhanger" ending to lead into the sequel.

Looks Better...

This looks a helluva lot better than all the other trailers I've seen up to this point. And yes, Spiderman 3 was terrible but there is something about this one that looks...off....I don't know what it is. And the most anticipated movie of the the summer?!! HAHAGAHAHAH. No, sorry sony that title easily belongs to Prometheus.

Still not sold

Nothing that I've seen has made me change my mind that this was for any reason necessary. It reeks of "made for the studio to cash in on the name, not for the fans"...hopefully I'm wrong.

I thought this movie looked like shit

from all the previous trailers, I just wasn't feeling it -- but this super trailer has really turned it around for me! Think I might actually check it out in theatres now... only peeve still is that everything is so dark, why?!

IF...

the lizard keeps progressing throughout the movie (a la the fly) and changes more into a lizard (with a snout!), then I might really like this movie. Treat it like a drug he gets more and more hooked on. And like drugs, the effects are more apparent on his body over time.

It would be pretty genius too. A way to appeal to the ditko design lovers as well as the ones that dig McFarlane's design. God I hope this happens.

Nope!

Im still sticking to my guns about this franchise not having to be rebooted, and Sony is just cash grabbing us fan boys... and so on.
but all that aside, this film doesn't look that great, it looks really fake, seriously the CGI looks bad. Also i don't understand why spiderman even has a mask?
anyways i hope it turns out alright for all of you who will see it.

Gcolonna...dude...

You say this reboot is unnecessary, yet your icon is from the incredible hulk, a movie that rebooted the hulk after 5 years.

And if you care to argue that the first hulk movie sucked and it needed a reboot, well... spiderman 3 sucked. Frankly, it was time to pass the torch.

Marc Webb

I seriously, loved (500) Days Of Summer and a ton of the music videos he has Directed. I have a ton of faith in his vision for Spider-Man. He knows how to have heart shine through the CGI mess. Plus by making us care more about the person behind Spider-Man, Peter Parker, it's just going to make the film that much better. I'm stoked for it.
