Just in time for the release of The Avengers across the country tonight at midnight comes the third and final trailer for Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man.
You can watch it here below.
I must say, I really like this trailer. Obviously not everyone is going to be as impressed as I am, but history has taught us that if you try to please everyone you end up pleasing no one. After this trailer your mind will be made up. Personally I’m intrigued by the film’s story that explores the backstory of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and the mystery of what happened to his parents (Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz). I love how the filmmakers have embraced the science geek side of Peter, as well as his wiseass nature when he takes to the streets and skies of New York City to fight crime; the Sam Raimi trilogy seemed to mostly gloss over those aspects of the character. The police manhunt led by Captain Stacy (Denis Leary), the father of Peter’s girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone), also plays an important role in the film.
The entire movie was shot in 3D so those action beats, including Spidey’s intense battles with the Lizard (aka Dr. Curt Connors, played by Rhys Ifans), are going to look pretty sweet on the big screen. And is it just me or does this movie almost resemble the 2008 Speed Racer motion picture in its eye-popping bright color scheme? The night scenes explode with reds and blues. Very pleasing to the corneas.
The Amazing Spider-Man is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt, Alvin Sargent, and Steve Kloves. Also starring Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Peter’s loving uncle and aunt, the movie in 2D and 3D opens on July 3, 2012.
