This new international trailer intersperses new footage amongst stuff we're familiar with from domestic trailers, such as Peter Parker's voiceover about his life, enemies, etc. There's quite a lot of in-costume action, as well as a promising comedic moment between Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man and Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy. On a seemingly trivial note, there's a little bit where we see how superpowers enhance Peter's skateboarding abilities, and it reminded me of a graceful moment on the Parker stairs from Tobey Maguire early in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Hopefully the rebooted version will keep it underplayed rather than hammering home that this Peter is cool because he skateboards. He's still a science nerdlinger, after all.
There's a lot in this particular trailer that suggests a solid Spidey movie, though the thematic focus on Peter's parents continues to nag a bit. It feels as though the disappearance of his parents is the hero's central motivator, but part of what always made Spider-Man special was that he was a hero born so completely out of guilt over Uncle Ben's untimely demise. We haven't seen much of the Peter-Ben relationship, so maybe the marketing is playing up the parental angle to distance The Amazing Spider-Man from its predecessors.
Marc Webb certainly seems to have elevated his visual approach to the blockbuster level here, ratcheting up significantly since his feature debut (500) Days of Summer. He's looks to be taking advantage of actually shooting in 3D, presenting the possibility that this reboot could be one of the rare movies that truly benefits from the added dimension.
