Can’t wait until The Avengers premiers on Thursday night at midnight to catch attached prints of the new The Amazing Spider-Man trailer, replete with its heavy-handed CGI web-slinging throughout the city (looks like some things just haven’t improved since the Sam Raimi days), copious shots of the villainous villain, more jokes, and more immersive 3D shots of New York City? Well, rest easy—we have the new trailer right after the jump.
Featuring far more shots of Spider-Man slinging throughout the city, The Amazing Spider-Man seems to carry with it some of the cartoonish CGI that marred some of the cityscape shots of Raimi’s take on the franchise—hopefully the film is still set to receive a CGI polish between now and the film’s July 3 premiere.
Elsewhere, we get more of the film’s backstory, in which Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) abilities seem to be tied to the disappearance of his parents, Parker reveals his superhero identity to girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and does battle with The Lizard (Rhys Ifans).
Nothing particularly revelatory, although the trailer reveals the film’s silly sense of humor, which is nice—not every film needs to be a gritty, Christopher Nolan-esque reboot, right? Still, it’s enough to keep us excited for the film’s release in July 3.
What do you think of the trailer?
