New Amazing Spider-Man Trailer Arrives
'I've got to stop him...'

07 February 2012  |  Written by Ali Plumb  

submit to reddit

Empire was one of the hosts at last night's international Amazing Spider-Man event, where fresh footage was revealed alongside a brand-new trailer for Marc Webb's web spectacular. And now, here it is online, and it's looking good.

More wisecracks, more flashbacks, and some jaw-dropping action sequences make up its two-and-a-half minutes, and it should silence the critics who thought the previous Amazing Spider-Man trailer felt a little too much like a computer game.

As well as all that, there's much more detail to be gleaned of Rhys Ifans' Lizard, as well as Peter's police adversary (and in-law), George Stacy (Denis Leary).

There's also a lovely moment where you can see the mechanical web shooters being assembled, and an enlightening snippet of Peter coming up with the formula that creates The Lizard in the first place.

So, what are you waiting for? There's a trailer to be watched!

 

Let us know what you think of it in the comment box below, and don't forget, The Amazing Spider-Man is out on July 4.


What did you think?
Mechanical webslingers for the win!

RE: Looks Really Promising
Agree with what others have said here.Way too many shots of Spidey without his mask.You are either in the suit or not Garfield. Look at it this way, can you imagine Bales Batman removing his cowl.At least when hes in the suit it always stays on (so far anyway). More

RE: Looks Really Promising
Not so sure he's in 'full public view' in the same way TM's Spidey was (in 2, especially, with him being knocked out and seen by dozens of people on a train). Connors works out who he is (says new species in town, aggressive when provoked, trailer misdirects to make it look like he's possibly talking about himself/Lizard, but he's talking about Spidey, and this may be the 'leverage' that leads to the 'formula' so knowledge of ID becomes a plot point and a way of avoiding too many 'express More

RE: Looks Really Promising
L: tftrman This trailer seems to show Spiderman in costume sans mask as much as with it on. Yes, we get that it's Andrew Garfield we don't need to see his face all the time! Agreed. Same problem with the old Spiderman movies - this insistence on showing Spidey without his mask in full public view is just annoying from a plot perspective and aesthetically: I wanna see Spidey in full costume, looking cool.

RE: Looks Really Promising
However, the only time in the trailer it seems like others have a chance of seeing his face I think it looks more like 'spidey uses his speed to flip about and take out people before they ID him as Peter' than 'Unconscious Peter Parker's face seen by a shitload of people on a train'. No worries about him not wearing the mask when he either doesn't need to hide his face or isn't cornered, unmasked, but able to use the kind of quick pounce speed a spider has to prevent people recognising him More

RE: Looks Really Promising
L: kitf Also, remember that Sony HAD to make some kind of Spider-Man movie to retain the rights. They could've left off where Spider-man 3 finished and we could've had more dire tripe. ut imagine if Marvel Studios gained the rights to the Spider-Man movie franchise. We could have had a far superior film instead of this, plus we might have even had Spider-Man in a future Avengers sequel. More

RE: Ooooh Yyyyeeeeaaaah
Too many bad choices in 3 for it to carry on from there, whoever made the choices. Repeat of previous thoughts: The first three started with it being all about a girl, best friends wanting the same girl, the second traced the fracturing of the Peter/Harry friendship. These were the undercurrents of the first two and should have been the conclusion of the trilogy, best friends duking it out, showing ROTS how you do a fight between friends, with MJ either dying during the last act or seeming More

RE: Ooooh Yyyyeeeeaaaah
L: JIm R L: Kayotik I believe a reboot is acceptable if there's a good idea that deserves to be told in a better way. For example, I'm one of the few who is more looking forward to the proposed Batman reboot (again) than I am over Dark Knight Rises. But then I'm a fan of the comics and always felt Nolan's films, though good, were too far removed from what I love about the comics.

RE: The Lizard is it?
Parker looks like that jerk Venkman constantly electrocutes at the beginning of sters Trailer is a big meh, a big sense of seen it all before. And that CG looks just as fake as the 2002 film. And there was nothing that particularly wowed me at all. More

Emma Stone as a blonde. suppose it looks pretty good, but I wonder if re-starting the franchise so soon after the Sam Raimi films will work against it. More

This is one thing Tobey McGuire and the script never nailed. As for 3d, its shot in it which helps (although im not sure its completely neccesary). Im sure the CG will improve over t More

RE:
Toby Maguires Parker didnt feel right to me.He just looked like a wimp from begining to end,while I think Andrew Garfield will hopefully grow into the role with more character development progression.Also Im not a big fan of Kirsten Dunst,certainly not the worst actress about but her performances generally go from good to average. Overal Im looking forward to this movie. More

RE: Pointless?
I have the same problem with this as I do with Raimi's films. I just don't agree with the choice for lead actor. Andrew is far better an actor than Toby in my opinion, but I just don't think he feels right for the role of Spiderman. It looks less cartoony than Raimi's at least, and I'm really hoping they do Venom properly in a future sequel. But the Lizard I'm not keen on, he looks like a villain from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I'll see the film before I pass judgement, I'm just not t More

What difference does it make how long they wait? Comic book movies are popular. Spiderman is popular. They still own the film rights. What's it matter if the result is a decent night at the movies? More

Really enjoyed the event last night, and the trailer looked sweet as in 3D. This really sells the film. Yesterday, I was freakin' out about the Avengers TV spot. I was totally unprepared for just how good Spiderman is looking. Some weird backlash surrounding the Lizard design... looks fine to me. Roll on July! More
