…And let the battle begin! Just days after Warner unleashed the latest Batman trailer, Sony has entered the fray with yet another incrementally updated trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man. By incrementally I mean that there isn’t too much in the name of entirely new footage…which sort of gets me worried – usually with the final trailer its likely to be a whopper but all the trailers for Web-head’s big day out seem to tread on the same footsteps – lets hope that this isn’t the best material that the film has to offer.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. 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 (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 releases on 6 July 2012 and is directed by Marc Webb – it stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, and Martin Sheen.
