There are just a few days until the movie actually hits theaters in 2D, 3D, and of course IMAX 3D, so many people doubtless put the kibosh on clip-watching some time ago, but others will want to see Spidey doing his action thing.
That's the focus of all three clips, which spend their almost three minute total time with Andrew Garfield under the mask as Spider-Man. The first two we've already seen in truncated form thanks to last month's four-minute "Super Preview." They show Peter as he arrives on a bridge where the dastardly Lizard is hurling cars in an effort to locate an Oscorp man played by Irrfan Khan, allowing Spidey to do some big-time superheroics. The last clip is new, following Pete down into Manhattan's sewers as he tracks his reptilian adversary.
And hey, the clips, which are here via Coming Soon, have Spanish subtitles, so you can bone up on your world languages while you watch.
At this point, if you've watched all the clips, then you've seen a significant chunk of The Amazing Spider-Man. With five days between now and the Tuesday, July 3rd release date, we're about to see how audiences actually react to Sony's reboot of the beloved Marvel Comics character whose been kicking around for fifty years since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko first put him in the pages of Amazing Fantasy. It remains unclear whether general audiences are prepared to wave off the familiarity of Spider-Man's origin story and the sense that the reboot is happening too soon in order to indulge in cinematic superheroics this Independence Day.
We shall see. One thing everybody seems to agree on is the fact that Andrew Garfield looks good in the title role. Probably more unanimously, folks agree that Emma Stone is a welcome presence in just about movie, so that ought to help out The Amazing Spider-Man, which also stars Rhys Ifans, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, and Embeth Davidtz.
