'Amazing Spider-man' trailer amazing
The last Spidey film was Spider-Man 3, starring Toby Maguire. That 2007 superhero flick was awful, and taking the franchise in a different direction was needed. Enter Andrew Garfield, best known for his starring role in "The Social Network," who will don the web-slinger's mask and tights. The movie's release date is July 3.
No one knows where "The Amazing Spider-Man" will rank with the previous franchise, spearheaded by director Sam Raimi and Maguire. If the film's second trailer is any indication, this film will be a box-office smash. However, competition for spring and summer movie dollars will be fierce with the upcoming releases of "The Avengers," in May and "The Dark Knight Rises," set for a July 20th release.
Check out the latest trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man," released this week, below:
