Can’t wait for Marc Webb’s version of “The Amazing Spider-Man”? Well you’ll just have to wait a little longer, buddy. The movie doesn’t open until July 3, 2012, when the kids are all out of school. What a coincidence! Until then, check out the 4-minute super duper preview that Sony has been promising for the last two weeks. I think we can all agree that it was definitely worth the wait. And look, now we know who C. Thomas Howell is playing in the movie! Some dude with a kid, as it turns out. Hunh.
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.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Fields, Julianne Nicholson, Campbell Scott, Rhys Ifan, Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse, and Chris Zylka.
