So I’m looking at having my heart replaced with that of a Belgian Draft horse, because I don’t know about you guys, but I simply see no other way for me to make it out of 2012 without some kind of cardiac event as a result of all the amazing (see what I did there?) geek films coming out.
Case in point: The Amazing Spider-Man, which – judging from this new trailer – is looking stupendous. We also get out first real proper look at the Lizard in action. In his labcoat! Oh, be still my geeking heart!
A select few press were invited yesterday by Sony (clearly mine just got lost in the mail) to their studio lot to view the trailer on the big screen in 3D. Apparently director Marc Webb has made this film from the ground up with 3D in mind, and according to the reports has really incorporated it brilliantly, particularly in the Spider-Man swinging through town sections.
Damn, it looks like I may just have to don the goofy glasses for this one.
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. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (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 (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.
