‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Trailer Teases An Untold Story

By  · Published on February 7th, 2012

The new trailer for Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man reboot has just hit the web… and it doesn’t look bad at all! The film stars Andrew Garfield as the titular and angst-filled hero and Emma Stone as the love interest alongside Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, Rhys Ifans, C. Thomas Howell and Campbell Scott (and yes, probably Stan Lee). It claims to tell the “untold story” but appears to be an origin tale, so who knows what Webb and friends have up their sleeve. (Beside the web shooter I mean.)

Check out the new trailer below.

This time out Sony is revealing quite a bit more of the action, and it’s looking pretty good. The CGI still has a cartoony or glossy look about it, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. The color palette maybe? It doesn’t look bad by any means. We also get a glimpse of Spidey’s villains including Ifans as The Lizard and Leary as Girlfriend’s Dad. Both appear to be formidable foes.

It’s hard to gauge how the 3D will play solely by this trailer… so I won’t attempt a guess. I’m usually pretty indifferent to the technology anyway.

The Amazing Spider-Man opens July 3rd.
