New trailer is up! (and will be attached to Avengers this weekend)

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/theamazingspiderman/

I didn't see it at the Avengers movie last night.   ???  Just as well - I'm not a big fan of the Ultimates storylines.  Too bad they are going this route.

Yeah, I talked to some friends who didn't see it either.  Seems to be on a theater by theater basis, for some reason.  We were able to see both Spidey and TDKR with our showing of Avengers.

From what I understand, it isn't necessarily a straight "ultimate" version of the story, although it may have elements from both universes (and maybe some new stuff).  I can't say I'd be any less excited if another Raimi/Maguire version was on the way, but I'm excited since it is a new Spidey movie nonetheless.  What I've seen so far (particularly the recent trailer) has me pretty excited.  I'm sure it isn't going to hang with Avengers/TDKR in terms of money or anything, but I'm still excited for Spidey to hit the big screen again.

Man, I really wish Marvel could get everything "under one roof" again though.  It would be so great to see the cinematic universe crossing over even more with Spidey, Wolverine, Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Daredevil, etc.  It is too bad they couldn't even just work out a cameo or something, but the studios are all too greedy for that it seems.  Not that a movie like Avengers needed more going on, but it would be neat to see that type of "invading army" scenario where heroes are showing up from all over to help out.

Getting everything under one studio would finally give the Secret Wars movie i have dreamed of. I hate the way they have handled the symbiote last time.

Technically they are under one roof now. Disney. However there are so many contracts that need to expire, it will take a long time before Disney can do something with everyone by themselves. In the mean time Disney just rakes in the licensing money and builds up the DisneyXD channel.

Still, wouldn't it have made sense for Sony to allow/encourage the use of the new Spidey in the film if only for a cameo to promote the upcoming film?  I suppose it may confuse people that in Avengers NYC is devastated and then in Spidey it is normal.

I don't think people care enough to be confused between Avengers NYC and Spidey's NYC. They are not reality. They are just movies.

What?!  Next you'll be saying Santa and the Tooth Fairy aren't real.

Actually, was down near Grand Central today... I was thinking of how many of these buildings were totaled in the movie.  One was across the street from my wife's work.

Those are real. I'm just not sure JediMac is real.

There's been a few new clips released this week from the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man:

I know many aren't super excited for this, but I have to say I'm pretty happy with everything we've seen so far.  Honestly, I'd be excited for just about any Spidey movie that was on the way most likely, but I do like the looks of the cast/story for this one.

Won tickets to an advance screening tonight, can't wait
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Just got back from seeing it, awesome, Garfield is a much better Parker/Spidey than Macguire was.
The costume was good, there were some first person shots in it that were pretty cool the CG for Lizard was really good oh and Emma Stone AWESOME!!

Emma Stone in knee highs. Emma Stone doing homework in knee highs.  Emma Stone doing science in knee highs.  Emma Stone reading the phone book...in knee highs.  End of story.   >:D

The Amazing Spider-Man kinda was....amazing. Had issues but overall I may have liked it better than the first SM.  I definitely liked the Spidey part of it...thought Garfield made a better Parker/Spidey than Tobey did and it was just fun.  I don't even want to think about it too hard right now.
