The official trailer for the new Spider Man movie was released this week and I was shocked to see it was an entirely new cast, from the faces we are familiar seeing.
The Amazing Spider-Man movie was directed by Marc Webb, based on the comic book, starring Andrew Garfield as the New Spider-Man. It is the fourth Columbia Pictures film based on the Marvel Comics character, and the first film in a rebooted Spider-Man film franchise.
The cast includes Garfield as Peter Parker and his alter ego, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. The film will portray Parker as his super powers are evolving in high school.
The film’s development began simultaneously with Sony announcing the cancellation of Spider-Man 4. Opting for a reboot with the same production team rather than another sequel, the studio announced a July 2012 release date for what was now titled The Amazing Spider-Man.
James Vanderbilt was hired to write the script while Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves helped fine-tune the script. Filming started in December 2010 in Los Angeles before moving to New York City with the help of RED Epic camera. The film entered post-production in April 2011.
Â The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on July 3, 2012. A sequel of the film is being planned for release in 2014 with James Vanderbilt hired to again write the screenplay. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think?
