Aah, the age of reboots – where no film franchise is too sacred to get a fresh coat of paint thanks to special effects, a modern director, and an all-new cast. Thankfully, not all reboots are terrible. Take The Amazing Spider-Man, for instance – which now has a sequel that has a brand new trailer.
Andrew Garfield’s portrayal of Peter Parker, in the alternate universe where Gwen Stacy (played by Emma Stone), is a more serious, darker take on the wall crawler’s life story. Comic book fans are pleased that Parker hacks together his own web shooters, and relies on a few other tech bits to get by. The first movie was an enjoyable romp, again introducing audiences to Spidey’s back story (even though Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man series did a decent job), all while being far less emo than the previous trilogy.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theatres next year, and this time around Spidey’s senses will be tingling as he fends off a trio of baddies: Electro, The Rhino, and Green Goblin. Often trailers give away too much of the movie, but honestly, even if the full film has a as much action as these two-minutes-and-forty-seconds, it’ll still be a thrill ride. And hopefully some more classic bits from the comics also make an appearance this time around.
