The Amazing Spider-Man 4-Minute Preview


Tonight saw the release throughout all NBC channels (both network and cable) of a 4-minute preview of Columbia Pictures’ entry in this summer’s blockbuster season: The Amazing Spider-Man.

The preview begins with new footage that shows Andrew Garfield saving a young boy from a dangling SUV held only by him as Spider-Man and his super-strong web. Once this sequence ends the rest of the preview is mostly a rehash of scenes from the last two trailers the studio has released.

With Marvel Studio and Walt Disney Pictures hitting the jackpot with the recently released superhero team film The Avengers the other big films this summer, especially the superhero ones, have their work cut out for them. It’s going to be a tough going for this web-slinging reboot to capture the magic the original Raimi film was able to bottle when in came out in 2002, but from the looks of this preview and the trailers before it there’s a chance it could do so again.

The Amazing Spider-Man is set for a July 3, 2012 release date.

    That’s a pretty bold statement considering this “boy” is clearly a mid-twenties bodybuilder after he puts Spidey’s mask on. I’m all for suspension of disbelief, but if you can’t find a kid who can climb out of an SUV backwards, or a non-goonish stuntman, then maybe you need to rewrite the scene. It just seemed laughably bad, especially for such a high-profile commercial. I can understand wanting to build suspense, but use something that works.
