The Amazing Spider-Man International Trailer Shows More Lizard
Sony’s rebooting the Spider-Man franchise with The Amazing Spider-Man, heading to theaters on July 3, 2012 and starring Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man. Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) directs and Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, and Sally Field co-star in this new look at Peter Parker’s teenage years.
The studio’s just released a new Japanese trailer for this latest take on the origin of comic book character. And asked why there’s a new origin film after we’ve already seen the story in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films, director Webb told About.com:
“We’re telling the story in a different way. And I think it’s really important when you’re redefining a character for the audience to experience things that they haven’t experienced from the ground up. I wanted to build a character. There’s just something about the movies that I see, like, I feel like point of view is a really crucial thing in the story and that you need to build up the sort of emotional building blocks so that you can experience all the other emotions in a very specific way, rather than just experience it in an intellectual way. I mean, that’s why at the beginning of the movie there’s a story of his parents and them being pulled from him. I think you want to feel what that sense of abandonment feels like as an audience member so that you can readily and appropriately identify. And we’re creating a different universe with different rules and a different tone and different villains. We’re very careful to honor the iconography of Spider-Man, but we wanted to tell it in a new and different way.”
