I guess these are a new thing…? They are basically quick snippets of footage from the film with zero plot points, just fun action shots. The first has us flying through the city with Spidey, seeing things from his point of view. Very neat to see, and I would have killed for footage like this back in high school (the '90s, in case you were wondering).
Full disclosure, I purchased The Amazing Spider-Man DVD when it first came out and didn't get past the first half hour. I was not impressed with the movie at all. I had already seen it in the theater and, sitting at home, couldn't stomach another 2 hours of my time with it. I have hope that they have fixed a few of the common complaints in this film; Peter does seem a little more jovial. Since Sony plans on really milking this series for all it's worth, they really need to hit this one out of the park. Marvel is doing an amazing job mixing action, comedy, and story. If this movie relies too heavily on origins for all the villains it's introducing, they're going to have problems.
Based on a script by Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continues the adventure seen in the first film as Spider-Man continues to learn how to balance his life both as Peter Parker and as a superhero. His graduation is coming up, he continues to hide his secret identity from Aunt May (Sally Field), he has a complicated relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) because of her father's dying wish, and at the same time he must deal with an outbreak of bigger and badder villains infesting the city—most of which is due to what's going on in the labs at OsCorp. Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Chris Zylka, and Martin Sheen co-star in the movie, which will be in theaters on May 2nd.
