UPDATE: Official Amazing Spider-Man trailer swings its way online

Jul. 20, 2011by: Paul Tassi

UPDATE: Now the official trailer has been released and you can see if you like it any better in non-bootleg form.

You know, at this point I'm almost sick of trailer leaks. To me it's no fun to watch a grainy, blurry version of something you've been anticipating for a while, and that's happened a ton recently with the DARK KNIGHT RISES and AVENGERS trailers leaking in bootleg form ahead of their official release.

And now the same has happened for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN with this trailer presumably set to premiere at Comic-Con in a few days. But if you're not going, you can check it out in diminished form here.

It has the usual pieces of the origin story in place, with a bit more emphasis on Parker's dead parents. It would seem to have a more serious tone than Raimi's version, and I did appreciate the POV sequence which I thought was rather cool.

See for yourself below, and let me know what you think.

Extra Tidbit: I think Garfield has a good look for Parker.

Despite being in agreement with those who say it's way too soon for a 'reboot,' this looks waaaay better than I was expecting.

Not much here to make a real judgment call...cast is nice, and that's where i will stand on it thus far.

I Still Don't Get It.

It may be an entirely different take on the character, but it's still New York, it's still a blue and red costume, still jumping and swinging- all the visuals are the same. After this trailer, I still don't get why they're rebooting a successful franchise so soon can offer us anything new other then a cheaper cast, a "hipper" Twilight-esque lead character and a whole new trilogy of 3D ticket prices.

Think I just answered my own question.

Still too early for a reboot

I like Garfield and Webb and of course Emma Stone, man is she georgous, but I still think it is WAY too early for a reboot. My problem is that I feel like we exausted ourselves to see Peter Parker turn into Spidy and now we have to do it all over again. I really loved Raimi's Spider-Man movies, yes even the 3rd I find to be enjoyable these days.

Now I'm not dimissing this film just yet. I admit I was angry hearing that the series would be rebooted so soon but I will still give this a shot.

Still not pleased this is a reboot, but...

It looks alright. I'm liking the parallels in story it seems to have with the Ultimate Spider-Man books, but the tone of this trailer is really lacking in the fun department. Hopefully, the next footage shows that the characters have the trademark humor, fun and wonder of Spidey's universe instead of this brooding attitude. Nothing really wrong with the trailer though. Still interested in what it has to offer, if anything. Give them credit for the POV sequence and trying something

First off, Raimi's trilogy is one of the best in film history. Anyone saying otherwise is either a jealous hater or a fool.

Having said that, even though this reboot seems pointless and unnecessary, I'll give it a shot.

Looks pretty good so far, only thing iffy is the first-person sequence. It still looks as plastic as the previous Spiderman films. It does seem a lot more serious and darker than Raimi's iteration, but I dunno if it's the marketing dept attempts to distance itself from the Raimi ones or if it's actually representative of what the film's going to be. Hell, the trailers for Spider-Man 3 made it look it was going to go gritty, but look how that turned out.

Well, taken on its own merits, the trailer's pretty good (though the POV sequence looked super fake... and kinda like the game Mirror's Edge). It still seems too soon for a reboot, but I guess that's life.

I'm hoping the POV was just for the trailer. As for the rest of it, I say fuck Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, this looks exponentially better.

I love how popular Raimi's flicks were with fans until a lame 3rd movie erased everyone's appreciation. I also love how everyone who likes this trailer needs to undermine everyone who doesn't. Fuck's sake, what happened to discussion on this site? It's just sides now.

Oh, and I thought the trailer was OK.

im confused...

How can any of you guys watch that POV shit and not think how badass it will look in 3D on an IMAX screen?? I just don't get the hate. Even if the POV didn't wow you, at least the movie has a better cast and some minor differences. Batman Begins was another origin, and nobody bitched as much about it. I'm not a fanboy btw, before any idiot tries to pull that one out of the holster again...

3-I didn't notice the minor differences, hell son if there are minor differences sign me up! I love when a movie is almost different than one I saw.

Sorry but...

until they hire ILM(Industrial Light & Magic) to do Spidermans special effect, then these Spiderman films will never look convincing.. Just like in Raimi's films the buildings and everything in the background including Spiderman swinging around the city doesnt look 100% convincing!!.. It still looks similar to a video game. smh... Im not saying it looks bad, it just doesnt look realistic enough.. ILM is the greatest & most realistic FX company on the planet, they made cars transform into robots

ILM is the greatest & most realistic FX company on the planet, they made cars transform into robots and there is almost not 1 single moment where it doesnt look real.. Someone as marketable as Spiderman needs this kind of treatment to look convincing & this production company has failed in the FX deparment once again.. Anyone who thumbs downs me knows Im speaking the truth..

It's much easier to make a convincing CGI robot then it is to make a convincing CGI human. Even ILM usually fails at properly rendering humans, just look at the first Transformer movie where Megatron flicks a very poorly done CGI man away from him in the third act. Even now, all the parts in Dark of the Moon where Shia was replaced with a CGI counterpart look fake.

Your mind is automatically critical of CGI creations, but especially human ones since you interact/see other humans every day.

Good Point Vanity ruins.. But the Majority of the Specially effect seen in this trailer was all background.. Buildings, Streets, Cars, windows Pipes, the, Sky ect.ect.. Everything that includes the backdrop to a City & it still doesnt look convincing enough.. Raimi had the same problem with who ever did his FXs.. it might be the same company which I believe is Sony Pictures.. The Human part that you explained makes perfect sense but there is no reason for the Background FX to look video game

ILM usually does good work, I think Weta is the better FX house, though.

You're being critical of a movie that's barely had any time in post production and still has a little less than a year's worth of time to improve the CGI. When you talk about the CGI I assume you're talking about the POV sequence. Which I, personally, doubt will even end up in the final cut and was probably put together specifically for this teaser in order to show off the movie's 3D aspects.

Yeah I thought the same thing too about that POV part not even being in the movie.. But regardless, whether it is or inst in the film it will still be the same FX team doing the whole movie.. Im not saying its horrible because its not.. But what I am saying is that it still has the same exact look that Raimi's films had where the Background material where Spiderman is swinging around looks videogame like.. The FX look really really good but they look like they are still a layer or two away from

The FX look really really good but they look like they are still a layer or two away from being 100% convincing to the eye. And that includes Raimis 3 Finished films still looking like its 2 layers away from looking realistc.. Even tho this movie isnt a finished product in the FX editing & they still have a long time to refine it, I still highly doubt there is much to refine because I believe that is the best this company can do,, again it looks exactly like Raimis Background effects... By the way,, what movies did the FX company Weta do???
8:24PM on 07/20/2011
Weta did the effects for all of the LOTR movies as well as Avatar, District 9 and more recently the Planet of the Apes prequel.

ooohhh.. wow.. okay those special effects were amazing.. I thought Avatar was done with ILM.. so yeah Weta definitely is competition against ILM... District 9 was so convincing, it looked realistic beyond belief.. and that was on a low budget...

You guys need to think before talking. First off this costume looks more realistic and better than raimis version and its more character centered you can tell which if you ever read the comics is definitely what a spiderman movie calls for so sit back and wait for this to be better than raimis. Because it already is. Movie looks fucking sick!

Boring

But I'll still check it out on DVD. As many have posted, it's just recycled material. If the story would have picked up at any key point in the 1970's or 1980's (Amazing Spider-man #129 or Secret Wars 2 #8 anyone?), it would be fresh. Sequels could then continue on through the rest of the '80's and into the '90's and further. Everyone (including non-comic fans) already know the gist of the story being represented here.

ANOTHER ORIGIN STORY????

We have to sit through a yet ANOTHER origin??? Just get on with the adventure. Randymeeks81 nailed Spider-Man with his comment. Spider-Man is bright and fun with humor mixed in. This darker turn I'm sure is due to the circle jerk over Christopher Nolan's films. Plus, the costume still sucks ass. At least Raimi got it closer...

I'm surprised at all the backlash as well. This looks pretty good, better than Raimi's movies anyway and with a better cast. When this comes out in May 2012, it will have been 5 years since the last Spider-Man movie. That's a good chunk of time. Just because fanboys have obsessed over Raimi's films for the last few years, doesn't mean everyone else has. Those movies are a distant memory to most. If someone came along and wanted to reboot/remake the Star Wars prequels in 2010, would you all have

Five years in movie terms is a fairly long time. Maybe not that long if you're thinking only recently and the typical 3 or 4 years between sequels, but if you go back further than 20 years, and especially to the 50s, 60s and 70s when sequels and remakes followed 2 years later or even the very next year, 5 years seems like a long time. I'm not super thrilled about another "origin story" but the fact that it's only 5 years since the last Spider-Man is not something that bothers me, and I guess I

Is it that you're still digesting and meditating on Spider-Man 3 that a reboot 5 years later is overwhelming? I just don't get it. It's a movie based on a comic book, who cares if it's *only* 5 years between "series"? How long should they have to wait?

Why am I feeling a sense of deja vu? This is retarded, I don't care if this movie is good or not. This movie will come out 10 years after Raimi's, 10 years for a reboot that looks about 75% the same as it did before? This is just dumb.

You can't get away from the darkness of Parker's tragic moments and of his twisted villains. Yet I really hope that Garfield gets to use his charm and humour. Maguire wasn't only too stocky, he was too pathetic and silent. This looks a lot better told and truer to the comic.

Not Bad

I still feel it is too soon for another Spiderman but this does look pretty good. The mystery about his parents looks to be a nice twist. Let's hope the 100 million dollars is shown on the screen.

I said this the other day and I'm starting to fear I was correct. It's beginning to look more and more like Spider-Man for the Twilight generation.

I will admit the only cool thing was the end. Otherwise I'm not as sold on this idea anymore after seeing the recent promos and press release information.

Meh... I just don't know what to think. It looks okay I guess. But here's another 100 million that could've been spent on a fresh idea.

Wow!

Heavily impressed by the dark tone this has taken. I think we're onto an improved franchise.

Spider-Man is not dark and gritty, he wears a brightly colored blue and red costume, and fights brightly colored villains (excluding the Black Cat), and spouts wise-cracks like a cynical stand-up comedian. This Spider-Man is dropping the humor and essentially putting Edward from Twilight in the tights. Lame.

I'm a little surprised at all the hate...

I like what I see so far. It looks like a darker, more serious approach than Raimi's... While, I did love Raimi's vision, I think there is room for a more serious version, like Burton's and Nolan's Batman. Both were brilliant in their own individual ways. And I'm not sure why there's all this hate that there's an "emo" Spiderman... I mean, did you think Nolan's Batman was "emo" because he was portrayed as darker than Burton's? Or was Burton's "emo" because he didn't wear tights and then

the problem is that Spider-Man is rarely dark and serious. He's a wise-cracking superhero, that we're supposed to be able to relate to.

These are fair questions.

The problem is that a darker theme works with the Batman mythos.

Darkness just doesn't work with Spiderman. Why? I'm not sure, but I'm sure that it doesn't. It probably has to do with the fact that high school isn't really dark unless there's a shooting spree of some kind.

I think if the Nolans take this similar dark approach to their new Superman movie, it will suck int he same way because dark doesn't work for every super hero character, nor should

I think it should also be noted, that there's a very real difference between true darkness, and teenage emo dramatics.

Well, that is the case most of the time, but the trailer really doesn't give us enough to go on to say his character is normally a dark character. As far as we know, most of what we see takes place following the death of Uncle Ben. Or it's possible it's just a darker incarnation of the character.

I think that it's a fair argument, but I think that the character can still be wisecracking in a more serious film... The film doesn't have to be campy. It can have a more realistic approach/feel without destroying the integrity of the characters or the series.

Perhaps. The only way to know for certain is to see the film. But given what I've seen so far, I'm not too optimistic. I hope I'm wrong and a great Spiderman film is delivered, but I doubt it.

I suppose it's just me, but I just don't find anything too terribly serious or dark about teenage characters. Teenagers just aren't that psychologically complex in most cases.

I see your point... This film could easily be awful, but I'm gonna hold my reservations until I see more, but I have faith. Rhys Ifans can be very creepy (I.E. Enduring Love). Stone is both funny, cute and talented. Garfield has yet to disappoint so far. And though I've only seen his one film, (500) Days of Summer, I was impressed and am willing to see what he's got to bring to the table.

I think it's too early to say whether this'll be an improvement or not until we see a little more... At the same time, a do see this as a director making a serious effort to do something new and different.

Still Lame


Still looks like boring emo drivel, even in better quality video.

Here's the problem.

The studio is attempting to clone the Dark & Gritty brand of retread that made Nolan's Batman so successful.

But Dark & Gritty lends itself to the Batman mythos.

Dark & Gritty just doesn't work for Spiderman.

There's nothing Dark & Gritty about high school drama, unless it's a Columbine incident.

And the POV shot puts it on the same level as the DOOM movie, or any 1st person video game.

Some examples of darker and more serious Spider-man:

Death Of Jean DeWolff (and a lot of Peter David's early Spectacular run in general)

Kraven's Last Hunt, and most recently, Grim Hunt.

Sorry if this was discussed -- thread is super long

The quotation at the end: "We all have secrets -- the ones we keep, and the ones that are kept from us."
What do people think this means in the context of the film? Seems pretty strange to me. It's as if the story follows Peter Parker as he realizes on his 18th birthday that he's actually a human-spider hybrid, this being a secret that his parents, Uncle Ben, and Aunt May kept from him all his life.
Call me ignorant, but I don't see how the quotation fits at all.

2) Connors transformation that I'm sure he tries to hide
3) The truth about Bens death, and how Peter could have stopped it
4)Gwen's and/or Captain Stacy's possible death, and Spideys involvement
5) Just exactly what are his parents going off to do that they never return, and how much are Ben and May keeping from peter

Listing random things that could be considered "secret" in the film doesn't adequately explain the quotation ending the trailer. The phrase reflects (or should reflect) the entire overarching story and theme, not some small subplot. It's "this is what will be explored in this film," and the images should coincide.

Two that you mentioned are big enough secrets, sure, but they fit rather awkwardly with the final POV sequence. Spidey's identity is the biggest and most obvious "secret," but

Two that you mentioned are big enough secrets, sure, but they fit rather awkwardly with the final POV sequence. Spidey's identity is the biggest and most obvious "secret," but this isn't one that's "kept from us." He's speaking in first person, ending on (and stressing) the secrets KEPT from us, as in secrets kept from him.

The thing about his parents works, sort of, if there's some significant connection to their mysterious departure and his becoming Spider-Man. (Like his parents being scientists who actually created the radioactive spider.. This is just a random theory in an attempt to relate the words and the images, knowing full well I'm butchering the origin. For the record, this is NOT what I think the story will explore.)

But even then, it's awkward. The secret kept from Peter Parker has to be something to do with his becoming Spider-Man. If not, the filmmakers just threw in an ominous, cool-sounding quotation to lure in an unquestioning audience.

Screw Raimi's spiderman trilogy.

First one is childish

Second one has its moments but overall quite boring and really overrated.

Third one....no comment.

that two people can see the same thing and see something completely different. The reboot happened. And it's going to happen again. Batman will be rebooted. X-men. Bond. Why get so upset at every occurrence instead of keeping your opinion to yourself until you've actually seen the movie?

Still not sure how to feel about this film. I admit to being very into the first two Raimi films but they don't hold up on repeat viewings now. And Spiderman 3 is definitely as bad, if not worse, as everybody says. It does look like they are going alittle darker with this one. Which is fine if they manage to keep Spidey's playful humor. Raimi's Spidey was way too moody and depressed all the time. I never felt Spidey as having fun in what he was doing.

As for Garfield I think he'll be the

As for Garfield I think he'll be the perfect Pete Parker/Spiderman. Tobey was the acting abilities of a piece of wood. So good riddance. Only cast member I'm not liking is Dr. Connors. The actor looks way too crazy to be a mild mannered scientist. Connors was always an everyday family man which makes his transformation into the Lizard even more horrifying. Based on that shot of Connors in this film I can see him being a deranged psycho even before he changes. I wish Dylan Baker was back, he was one of the best parts of Raimi's films.

I bet if the other films were never made, everyone would be really excited for this. We should have all known that there was going to be more Spiderman films cause they had a contract to make 3 more. It is a bit soon for a reboot, it isnt the first time it has happened. Usually the reboots are way better. This looks way better. As for CGI, they still have a long ways to go. I think some of you just cant handle the look of maturity in it. Want the bright colors and full animated action

Im not gonna say it was good or bad but it looks like much of the same origins from the 1st movie, it will probably take up a good 30 mins or so before he even becomes Spider-Man, which i dont think people will like or wanna sit through again. The only plus side to the trailer was Emma Stone looked absolutely great as gwen.

And now I'm finally grasping the Twilight comparisons from others in the past judging from this trailer. Much as I like Garfield and Spider-Man's my favorite superhero, I'm just not feeling it.

Not too bad...

I really haven't had any interest in the reboot. It just seemed too soon. BUT after seeing this, it looks pretty damn good.

I hope the POV is a one-shot gimmick for the trailer, or a one-scene gimmick in the movie. I certainly do not want to see it more than once, because it will very quickly start to feel like a blatant rip off of Mirror's Edge - as it's already starting to. I'm referring only to the POV, not the whole movie.

It's a bit dark but I guess because it's not officially online yet. Still, that POV sequence is thrilling. This might turn out good. And Emma Stone is hot.

I do hope it's not trying to be the arachnid version of "Batman Begins" but for the most part that trailer floored me... I particularly loved the PoV stuff at the end. The boyhood Spidey comics fanatic in me is all goose-pimply and jazzed up for this flick! Then, the rational moviegoer in me has just a few hesitations over certain things. If anything, I'm expecting this to easily surpass Raimi's whiny trilogy. To sum up: I can't friggin' wait, but I don't want to get over-excited and possibly

Lost some faith after seeing that. Will still give it the benefit of the doubt, but I got a very LET'S APEAL TO THE YOUNG TEENAGE TWILIGHT CROWD vibe.

Looks like crap. It still blows my mind that Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi agreed to do Spiderman 4 & 5 and yet the series was rebooted anyway. I just don't see the point. Despite being a disappointment (though, as stated by someone else here, it isn't nearly as horrible as people make it out to be), Spiderman 3 could have definitely been amended by the fourth one--it's a movie, they could have figured out a way to bring Venom back and make up for his poor treatment in the third one. They also

So is he going to crack dark jokes during his battles? Sorry, but this shit looks too emo to be a Spiderman movie. And on top of all this, it is about the most unnecessary reboot to date.

Short-term memory much?

I don't know where all the Raimi hate came from. Everybody I know loved Spiderman 1 and 2 when they were released, and still loves them to this day (guys, girls, kids, heck even my Mom). Spiderman 3 might have been a step down, but it wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. Besides, people really loved the Spiderman 3 trailer and thought that movie would be great. So all the people who say that this movie will be better than any of the Raimi ones based only on the trailer needs to think

So what, it is a reboot. Batman, Superman, had reboots. Why can't this? Honestly, the Spiderman Raimi films were a bit too CGI cartoon goofy feeling for me. This looks more deep and bad ass. It is kind of dumb for a reboot so soon. But no one liked Spidey 3. That was just bad. There are new kids on earth, that are going to grow up with this version. And this definitely is looking better.

Sublime reboot

They have exceeded my expectations.

I am a fan of Raimi's versions but i felt they had a bit too much of a whimsical tone , that doesn't seem to be the case with this incarnation.

I love what i see so far.

Don't know how they did it but SM is reborn again and it looks fantastic

The only thing that bothers me about this movie is the rehashing of the origin story. With Batman Begins, it wasn't so bad because no other Batman movie had gone as in depth as it did. The fact that this movie is coming out only a few years after the last trilogy and is covering a large chunk of the same material of the original is a little annoying. But if it's a good movie, I'm all for well-made, entertaining, NOT CORNY superhero cinema :)

I liked it at first. It seems darker than the 2002 Spider-man, as described, a little more realistic and of the Batman Begins nature....until that POV shot. WTF? It looked like a video game and completely took away from the darkness of the beginning. I realize that it was probably created as a promotional part of the trailer, but it was a pretty bad way to tease the Spiderman character. Would rather have seen what little of Spiderman they have filmed at the moment.

I dont get why there is a "Sponsor" for this BOOTLEG trailer??!

As for the trailer, looks the same as the first one with Tobey Maguire. There will of course be subtle differences, but an origin story that will be steeped in the lore of Spider Man can only differ so much, the core story is identical.

I hate comparing everything to Nolans Dark Knight.

Can we stop comparing this to the Dark Knight? Spiderman is supposed to be lighthearted and colorful!! The problem I have with this movie deals more with the characters. I love me some Garfield but why are they keeping the emo look? I know the director said he wanted peter to be an outsider and not nerdy because nerds are popular these days but EMO?! Really?

I remember this movie, wasn't it from 9 years ago.

What a terrible idea to reboot it. I like Garfield as Spidey, but c'mon, I don't want to watch the same thing from 9 years ago. I know the lizard is in it, but still. Bad idea, they should have just went on with the storyline.

For me,

this trailer did it. I was kind of disappointed when I first heard that they were rebooting Spidey almost after a decade. But this is something new and fresh and while its an origin story, this trailer has gotten my hopes up. I'm on board 100% now. I wish people would give this movie a chance. Think about it:
We FINALLY are getting the Lizard as a villian!
The Gwen Stacy love story is being told and rightfully so!
Peter's parents are being acknowledged.
They're giving Spidey the Ultimate

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED

to complain about this movie or Hollywood or reboots/remakes in general when we have the same people jizzing over TDKR and THE AVENGERS trailers. This film already looks to have more depth and better tone/atmosphere than all 3 of Raimi's films. That POV will look amazing in 3D and they still have another YEAR to fix it all up. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN WILL BE AMAZING.

No, what I'm saying is people shouldn't be complaining that Hollywood has no more ideas because of the ednless reboots when people are EXCITED for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and THE AVENGERS when both of those films are adaptations of comic books and cartoons. Hardly anything original. I can respect when people have valid complaints and worries. I can't respect fanboys who cry.

All I hear is everyone bashing it because "Wahhhhh the new Spider-Man film might be good but its a reboot so I fucking hate it anyway" instead of "This didn't need to be rebooted but since it has been, this is what I liked and didn't like about the trailer". People, we're all such passionate personalities on the web, but don't get offended when I'm just pointing out the obvious. I like very much what I saw. It looks heaps and bounds more quality than the previous 3 (the first was the only one I can sit through anyway). This is what I wanted to always see, a Spider-Man film taken a bit more seriously and not treated like a live-action sloppy cartoon. I'm sorry you don't feel the same.

You can keep repeating yourself all you like, but it won't make your comments any less childish.

People like what they like, they hate what they hate.

If you can't handle the notion that not everyone shares your unconditional love for this unreleased film, then perhaps reading discussion boards that inherently have a wide variety of opinions isn't the healthiest thing for you psychologically.

I don't see anything twilight. All I see is a biased hate for this film and a purist love for Raimi. Get over yourself.

I don't see the Twilight influence everyone's bitching about here either.
Ask yourself why would Sony even want to market to that crowd when they already have a massive fanbase for Spider-man to market to?

"biased hate" "purist love"

Cripes, parrot much?

Honestly, is everyone required to love this film in the eyes of Marvel fanboys?

What a stupid comment.

Looks pretty lame.

Still can't get over the fact that they remade this soooo soon. It's almost like a Saturday Night Live skit spoofing the remake overkill in Hollywood.

They had to remake it or they would have lost the rights to Marvel

They didn't have to REMAKE it. They could have brought in a new cast and continued where Raimi's films left off, which I think would have been a much better idea. But now I get to watch first person Spider-Man.

I'm excited!

I think it was a great teaser! For those complaining about the POV shot, give them a break, the effects people still have a whole year to work on the film, what we are seeing is not the final product.
I just can't wait to see the Lizard now, everything else looks great, I'm liking the more serious tone.

Good thing is...

It's a Marvel movie, bad thing is it's not really impressive, but still can't wait to see it!

The thing I'm looking forward to most in this is the stuntwork. Actually BELIEVING someone has Spider powers. 'Seeing' it. Rather than being alienated by a lame Raimi C.G. shot:

Looks good

Though I'm annoyed it's another origin story

LOL I like the "Marvel Studios" logo above the fake Spider-man logo.

But I agree on the bootleg trailers, I held off watching The Dark Knight Rises' until I saw Harry Potter...and of course I either missed it or it wasn't with the 3D version...
