If the sheer amount of The Amazing Spider-Man teasers, trailers, spots, and clips released so far have you wondering if you’ve already seen the whole damn film… well, you might not be that far off. A Vimeo user going by Sleepyskunk has cut together the footage we’ve already seen into a 25-minute version of the movie that covers the basics of the entire narrative. Watch it after the jump (but be warned that, duh, spoilers follow).

Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man screened last week for junket press, but attendees were largely forbidden to review the film at the time, or even discuss it in detail on social media. But the film premiered this week in London, and with that open screening taking place reviews are starting to proliferate.
So what do people have to say about this Spidey reboot, which stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans? The film changes some elements of Spider-Man’s origin, and in the view of some emphasizes the emotional/teen romance angle more than in Sam Raimi’s films. (Which means that some people didn’t watch Raimi’s films too closely, because the emotional angle was huge in all three.)
The consistent takeaway is that Garfield and Stone are quite good together, and that the supporting cast gives them an able boost. But the rest of it? Well, it’s a summer movie… Read More »
Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man is done and has begun its long publicity push leading up to its July 3 release. That means spoilers will soon be everywhere discussing exactly how this take on Spider-Man is different from Sam Raimi’s popular trilogy, how good Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone‘s chemistry is, how exactly Peter Parker’s parents play into the film, will Rhys Ifans‘ The Lizard look believable, all of the questions that have brewing since last Summer when everyone got their first look at the movie.
However, for those of us who won’t be able to see the film until opening night, Sony has released a pretty extensive B-Roll mini documentary that will do a great job of quenching your thirst of all things web-slinger. Check it out below. Read More »
Even if you aren’t excited for the debut of Howard Stern on NBC’s America’s Got Talent next week, now there’s a superhero reason to watch as well. According to a new television commercial, a special four minute “super preview” of Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man will air during the show on Monday May 14. We’ve got the tease below.
In addition, a really fun interview has come online with the new Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield. In it he’s interviewed by none other than the previous Spider-Man, Tobey Maguire. All this Spidey-goodness is after the jump. Read More »
Later today the new trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man will go online, just before it hits theaters in front of The Avengers. We’ll have that up as soon as it becomes available, along with some other info from a press event held yesterday to promote the film.
In the meantime, Apple provided a few new shots from the movie last night, and two of them feature villain the Lizard, played by Rhys Ifans, a whole lot of CGI, and what looks like a couple of really nifty gloves. Check out those pics below. Read More »
For most of the past year, the only members of the public who had any real idea what to expect from the villain in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man were those in attendance at Sony’s panel at Comic Con last year, when the first footage of the Lizard was shown. Over the past couple months we’ve seen images of licensed products that showed a hint of the character, and the full-length trailer revealed quite a bit as well.
But the best look at the actual face of the character now comes via more merchandizing. In this case, a big poster shows us just what Marc Webb and his designers and effects team have cooked up as the post-transformation visage of the character played by Rhys Ifans. Read More »
