Sony recently released an exclusive 4 minute super preview of the summer’s most anticipated movie, or so they say. As the title might suggest, that movie is The Amazing Spider-Man and what we get in this “super” preview is essentially a cool mash-up of most of the footage we’ve seen so far from trailers, plus around 1 minute of new stuff.
Now this might not really be the summer’s most anticipated film but it sure looks very cool. Also the scene with the kid was very good, although I wish they didn’t spoil something like that (so be warned if you haven’t seen the “super” preview yet).
Do I really need to give you a synopsis here? I mean it’s Spider-Man and all the trailers released have basically shown half the movie. At this point the best case scenario is we still have one hour of never before seen footage when we actually end up seeing the damn movie. Joking aside, I can’t really blame Sony for going all out, especially in a summer with superhero films like The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. On the bright side, because it was shot in 3D and Sony will push that experience the most, it won’t lose any 3D theaters to Batman come July 20th.
The Amazing Spider-Man was directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field and obviously Stan Lee somewhere in there.
The Amazing Spider-Man opens July 3rd in the US, UK and basically everywhere you can find a movie theater (unless you live in Norway, then you’ll just have to drive to Sweden or wait a week longer).
