Watch The Amazing Spider-man evade police in this new clip

06.06.2012

As much as the first two Sam Raimi SPIDER-MAN films rocked, they never felt as if they existed in the same universe as any of the other Marvel movies. Granted, Spider-man is the highest profile non-Disney/Marvel owned superhero, but the movies felt more like comic books come to life rather than movies based on a comic. I am by no means complaining, that style gave the SPIDER-MAN trilogy it's tone.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is often compared to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy in terms of being darker and more "realistic." My take has always been that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN wants to feel as if it takes place in a real New York, not a comic book version of the Big Apple.

This new clip features Spider-man trying to get away from the police and using his new superpowers to aid that getaway. This brief clip shows the clumsiness of Peter Parker as he learns to control his new skills as well as how director Marc Webb will have him interact with the city.

This works for me. Watching it, the CGI is not blatant as it appeared in the Raimi trilogy, but technological advancements may have a part to play in that. But you get the feeling that this could actually be happening in a real city. The closest I can equate it to is how Alfonso Cuaron took the Harry Potter universe and brought a realness to it when he directed PRISONER OF AZKABAN.

Either way, the more footage I see, the more and more THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN looks like a winner. Count me in when it hits the big screen on July 3rd.

I still have my doubts, but I will probably be seeing this because Garfield looks like a great Spidey. Really looking forward to the early reviews.

Denis Leary!

I was really meh on another Spider-man until this clip. I didn't realize Mr. Leary was going to spice this film up. Now - I'll be there when it opens.

Is he always going to say "Woo hoo!" every time he swings???....It's pretty annoying.

I agree with the comparison to the quality that Cuaron brought to Potter. Raimi did a lot right, but here you can see yourself in Parker's situation, worry about his safety and relish in his excitement. Plus, just about all the actors here are more interesting to me. I just hope the script is good.

Not for the movies, Sony owns the rights. Just as FOX owns X-Men and The Fantastic 4.

Marvel DOES own Spidey, X-Men, FF...they have temporarily licensed these films to Sony, Fox. Sony's license is nearing an end, so they are pumping out a new Spidey saga before they return their rights.

I'm glad you mentioned the CGI in this article. Marc Webb had said previously that he tried to make the movie with as little CGI as possible (which personally I feel is the right way to go). However all I do is hear people complain about how bad the CGI is. I always find it funny when someone complains about bad CGI when they didn't even use much if any. Although to be fair most movies now a days use it rather than practical effects.

While the minimization of CGI is interesting, this plays out as stiff. I wont say this is going to be indicative of the rest of the film but this, imho, did them no favors.

Those are some seriously bad over-dubs

The clip itself isn't as bad as some of the other stuff we've seen so far, but they REALLY need to do some more work on those dubbed lines... "WOOHOO! Watch out, swingin' here!" Really, really bad... :
