Australian Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

     May 28, 2012


The Australian trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has gone online, and it contains a few bits of new footage.  The new footage provides a little more humor (I love the gag with Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) tossing Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) out a window) and little more Curt Connors/Lizard (Rhys Ifans).  The reboot is definitely turning into something where the more I see, the more I like, and I just really hope it all comes together.

Hit the jump to check out the Australian trailer.  The film also stars Denis Leary, Sally Field, and Martin SheenThe Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man:

One of the world’s most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in The Amazing Spider-Man. Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.

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.

    Oddly enough…as bass-ackwards as this is gonna sound…I had ZERO desire to see this film rebooted. I loved Raimi’s & McQuirre’s collaboration/incarnation of the series. I thought that it hit the buttons on my childhood & had the correct amount of slapstickity that I grew up with.

    That being said…I loathed this iteration of the series.

    Then I started seeing the latter trailers & realized that this isn’t the Spider-Man of my childhood or even adult childhood. The thing is…I can’t really comment on this film other than to say that now I’m going into it with a more open frame of mind.

    I picked up an Ultimate Spider-Man for my daughter who is 8 & loves comic books…oddly enough…not as much as she does the movies. Anywho…the Ultimate’s Spidey aint my Spidey…so maybe its time to grant some leeway here & see what we get.

    The cast is insane…the director is a good one. I’m in.

    For those bitching about the Lizard: I feel ya…I wanted the lizardy Lizard. I’d been more pleased with a velociraptor snouted bi-pedal beast…but this Lizard on film is actually closer to the 64’s Lizard…the real one.

    So…I’m in.

      Well at least you’ve got an open mind about it, unlike a lot of the Raimi/Maguire fanboys who’ve been bitching lol…for me personally, the first Spider-Man comic book issue I ever picked up was Ultimate Spider-Man #1 when it came out in 2000. I was 10 years old at the time so that was really the Spider-Man that I grew up with, which is why this iteration of Spidey is more appealing to me because it’s much closer to USM in look and feel than Raimi’s movies were. I’ve always hated the Raimi movies but after going back and reading Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s original run on Spidey, I can kind of see where fans of that series were coming from. Raimi’s Peter Parker was more old fashioned and similar to the shy, timid nerd of those comics so I can understand why older fans might seem a bit turned off by this take on Peter Parker. For me though, this is the witty, sarcastic Peter Parker that I grew up reading in Brian Michael Bendis’s comics and have been waiting to see on the big screen.

      Completely agree with your comment! I’m 38 and the USM is not my generation’s Spider-Man. Maguire/Raimi version is closer to that…but still not perfect. I thought Maguire’s portrayal was not smart alecky enough and too downbeat.

      I too hated the reboot and completely dissed the first trailer which came out. But the more I see it the more I love it. I’m keeping an open mind. I think the trailer looks very nice and it actually has me quite excited. I think the casting of Garfield and Stone is great.

      An awesome Summer keeps on rolling boys! :)

    I was into Spider Man in the 80′s and I feel like this film is bridging some of the darker, more young adult tones of Spectacular Spider Man and the Ultimate Spider Man my nephews read in the past decade.

    This is good, and appropriate after the SM3 debacle (which was less Rami’s fault than the studio’s, for trying to cram too many villains in, in my eyes).

    I for one am glad to see them making a genuine attempt at making a fresh take on the mythos, AND –
    in any type of contest or arm-wrestling match, I’d be willing to put my money on Andrew Garfield over Tobey Mcguire ANY day.

    Dug Tobey’s take on it for the 1st two flicks. But it’s Garflield’s turn at bat now.
    Latest trailers/clips have convinced me. I’m seeing this.
