Sony Pictures International has released a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man which is similar to the US theatrical trailer we saw last week, but contains some new footage. The reboot is looking a lot darker in comparison to Sam Raimi’s movies, but that could just be because there are only 2-3 daytime shots in the trailer. Most of footage shown seems to take place at night.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Michael Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally 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 (Emma 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 (Rhys 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.
The Amazing Spider-Man will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.
