New Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone

     May 3, 2012


A new trailer for director Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man has gone online.  Compared to the first trailer, we get a much better idea of what the plot/driving force for Peter Parker entails, there’s quite a bit more action, and we get some great looks at The Lizard.  Given that the release is a couple of months away, we’re finally starting to see some of the finished visual effects shots come in, and they actually look kind of great.  The webslinging has an edge to it and The Lizard has much more texture.  I like Andrew Garfield a whole lot, and the biggest draw for me here is the character work between Garfield and Emma Stone.  They look to have some great chemistry and Garfield brings out a dickish side of Peter Parker that we didn’t really see in Sam Raimi‘s trilogy.  Overall, I’m pretty encouraged by this new clip and I’m hoping the full film delivers.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  If you missed our interview with Webb regarding his thoughts on the new trailer, the CG for The Lizard, the point of view scenes, the sequel, and a lot more, be sure to check it out.  The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally FieldThe Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd.

Official synopsis:


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.

    Nobody cares.

      I am very impressed. I have a feeling this will win over a few of the Negative Nancys who haven’t even seen the film yet. Webb’s version looks and feels completely unique from Raimi’s previous outings. I’m completely sold. Oh, and the lizard looks fantastic so far. Batman will no doubt carry a heavier and more satisfying plot, but I am way more interested in the potential action a Spider-Man vs Lizard conflict may provide. Wall/ceiling combat galore!

    I don’t care what all of you negative naysayers say. This movie looks awesome.

    • Reggie

      I agree the quickest way to get attention is too bash the hell outta something on one of these sites and just watch how many people chime in. Don’t think so head to RT and see all the backlash comments these handful of critics get for writing a less then glowing review of the Avengers movie. I know some of them just wanted attention. I saw the movie and I’m seeing it again tonight it may have a few problem areas albeit very minor but the movie is very entertaining. I sure this film will be just as cool in it’s own way.

  • AnaB

    Gimme! Now!!!

  • Reggie

    Looks cool to me I’ll stay open-minded and check it out.

  • J-rad

    Slowly but surely I think I am getting on board with that they are trying to do here…

    Looks entirely different from the Raimi version in a good way. Looks more like the comic coming to life to me and I personally thought Lizard looked pretty good from the quick looks…

    Its still 3rd fiddle here this Summer when it comes to Superhero movies , but a solid 3rd !

  • Richard

    I’m not that fan of Spider Man but I’ve go admit this looks way better than the previous films.

    A big improvement on the film!!

  • Mark

    Whoever made that deserves a promotion, interest went from “who gives a flying frig” to “holy crap, must watch now”

    Looks like this guy actually has a clue about Spider-Man.

  • Batman2029

    I’m sold! I thought the 2nd trailer was great but this is even better and more intense. The Lizard looks awesome and huge! And it looks 1,000 times better than Spider-Man 3!!!

  • Rickey G

    It only looks ok, not great. A summer movie to turn your brain off and watch shit blow up. It looks just as good as Battleship to me. Sooo not that great.

    • Guns Of Navarone

      You’ve seriously just compared that to Battleship? Shame on you sir, shame on you.

    • mattinacan

      …not sure if serious, or just drunk

  • shawn bonnie

    looks pretty damn good i hope this film delivers it like the trailers

  • joeblack

    the look of the movie is pretty solid, but really? another movie about a superhero whining about his parents? come on.

  • Griz

    This looks A-MAZING!

    Very glad! for a moment i was afraid this was going to be this year’s GL . . . . lots of promise, but mistake from the very start

  • LEM

    Yeah it looks good but I wouldn’t spend money to see it.

  • ben

    Yep. It was interesting to see Raimi’s take, but this looks like the Spider-Man movie I wanted to say. Hate to say it, but this is one hell of a justification for a reboot.

  • TheApprentice12

    Yep, this film has won me over. I think its primarily because of the chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.

  • Dave

    Orphan discovers talent/superpowers > Finds out someone he trusts is connected to his parents death > has to realize his potential to defeat them.

    This is Batman, Wanted, Iron Man, Harry Potter, Star Wars but it shouldn’t be Spider Man. Nobody cares about a new origins story. Especially one done with this archetype. It’s so old and tired. Move on Hollywood! Get some new ideas!

  • the dark knight ends

    it looks good more closer to the comis wich is a big upgrade so i’m in

  • Sara

    well,.. I am not amazed by the trailer. I am little tired of super-heroes movies, the ones that impress me more are the foreigners and indies movies.
    I will watch because of Emma Stone,… that’s all.

  • terry

    A lizard? Seriously! A f******* lizard!!!!!
    And what is with that damn color scheme? Everything is red.
    It makes me depressed. I ain’t feel in it. And Andrew comes across as a douche. An uppity, New York, trust fund baby douche bag.
    I hate the casting.
    Emma is great as an actress but she isn’t a Mary Jane.
    I’ll pass on this BS!

    • interestinggg

      lol, k.

      Not sure if trolling or has a mental disability

      • WEV

        think its called an opinion ;)

    • Nate H

      Whoa there, partner. You’re upset about the Lizard, but not a guy who goes insane and dresses as a flying Goblin? Or a scientist who goes insane and makes Octopus arms? Or a guy made of sand? Or a guy possessed by an alien? Come on.

      The Lizard is a real Spiderman villain from the comics just like Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Sandman, and Venom. Furthermore, his creation is less farfetched than Sandman’s or Venom’s.

      As for the costume, it’s a variation on the original. In the comics, there were plenty of those. He even wore ALL red once with a tattered shirt over it as an actual costume that lasted for a decent length of time. So relax.

    • tee

      well yeah, that’s bc Emma ISN’t playing Mary Jane. it’s Gwen Stacy.

      and if you don’t like the lizzard and all the rest of it… then i’m guessing you’re not big on comic book movies in general, so your opinion is invalid. you have to have an appreciation for the genre to give an objective opinion.

      buh bye!

      • terry

        Go fys! My opinion is valid because I’m a potential paying customer. Hello loser. Anybody home! LOL!
        The lizard is IMHO is garbage and the movie will most likely be lame o!!!!!!!

        Lame with a capital L! You got that.
        To bad your fragile feelings got hurt.
        Sniff! Sniff! Now go dry your eyes and help your mom with the rent.

    • the dark knight ends

      hey terry the solution for you is to just fu*k off

    • Stephen

      your gonna watch it and love it :P You know it, so stop trolling

  • diretor

    Que bosta!

  • Chikamatsu’s 10 Puppets

    I got what I wanted out of the trailer: a smartass Spiderman who talks shit when he fights. Its starting to feel a lot like the comics on which it’s based, and that is a VERY good thing.

  • COM3D14N

    I’ll never complain with more Spider-Man, but this trailer looks like they are trying waaaaaaay too hard

    • Nate H

      How so? Should they not try and see what happens?
      The Amazing Spiderman > Spiderman 1
      The Amazing Spiderman > Spiderman 3
      Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker >>> Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker
      Andrew Garfield’s Spidey >>> Tobey Maguire’s Spidey
      Gwen Stacy > Mary Jane

      Darker tone? Sure. It may not be necessary for a Spidey film, but it still works. There are plenty of darker Spidey story arcs in the comics, so that’s no big deal. I think we’re going to get a film that’s entertaining and truer to the REAL Spidey/Peter Parker. You have the right not to be excited, but I am even if you’re not.

    I love it!!!

    Never saw the first Spiderman movies and this new trailer doesn’t look appealing to me. The usual no-brainer with some explosions. Boring Hollywood remake crap.

  • peter

    This new trailer is not appealing for me. The usual no-brainer with some explosions. Dull actors. Boring Hollywood remake crap.

  • Stephens

    As much as I want to, I just can’t get into this. I really like Spider Man in general and loved Sam Raimi’s movies (excluding the 3rd one). I think for me it ultimately just comes back to being too soon. I’m sure it will be a solid to pretty good movie, but I just can’t muster up the interest in it.

  • Nate H

    This looks amazing! To me, it is more faithful to the comics than any of the original three. Not only that, but it looks better than Spiderman 1 and 3 (Spiderman 2 is still the best). I don’t really see this as an origin story – even though it is. I think it will be really good. And Andrew Garfield is an INFINITELY BETTER Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire (who was TRAGICALLY miscast).

    I’ll be honest (don’t kill me, folks): I’m more excited for this than I am for The Dark Knight Rises.

  • Beary

    Seeing this on the big screen in front of The Avengers made the special effects glaringly low-quality compared to Raimi’s last Spider-Man. Granted, special effects aren’t everything, but when a studio revamps an entire production from a 300+ million dollar budget to an 90~ dollar budget, one has to wonder how much they cared about bringing you every ounce of entertainment possible vs. how they can make the most money. No doubt Webb cares about story over effects, but I still have trouble getting behind a film that was started because the studio wouldn’t let their director make his fourth film the way /he/ wanted to. Raimi didn’t get full control over 3, and it turned out to be disastrous. He got it on 2, and some say it’s still one of the greatest superhero films of all time. So when he demanded it on 4, they fire him? There’s a fishiness looming over this entire production for me.

  • howard

    i wonder if spider-man like shawarma.

    • Nik

      Hahahahaha, he seems like a falafel kinda superhero…lol

    Needs more Martin Sheen.
