Check out another behind-the-scenes look at Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man”, which explores the storied history of movie stars learning to skateboard for their craft. Or some such. By the way, apparently “The Amazing Spider-Man” is poised to either make $125 million or $200 million this weekend, depending on who you ask. I guess there was a reason Sony decided to reboot this thing 5 years after the last movie after all. Go figure.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Also starring Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Fields, Julianne Nicholson, Campbell Scott, Rhys Ifan, Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse, and Chris Zylka.

Swinging into theaters July 3, 2012.
