Following yesterday’s world-wide sneak peeks at “The Amazing Spider-Man”, Columbia Pictures has released a new full-length trailer for the Marc Webb-directed franchise reboot that blends humor, action, drama and teen angst. What’s more, it features the first official look — as fleeting as it may be — at The Lizard.
Clocking in at two and a half minutes, the trailer sets up the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Peter Parker’s parents, his role in the creation of The Lizard, and his complicated relationship with Capt. George Stacy, who leads the police hunt for Spider-Man. Oh, and it spotlights the mechanical webshooters.
Opening July 3, “The Amazing Spider-Man” stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse.
“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 (Martin 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.
