'The Amazing Spider-Man' trailer: Our first look at The Lizard! Kinda!

“Thirty-eight of New York’s finest versus one guy in a unitard?”

Of all the revelations in the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man — Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) constructing his web-slingers like God Stan Lee and Steve Ditko intended! A blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) transforming into The Lizard! — by far the best one is Denis Leary as George Stacy, p.o.’d NYPD chief and papa to Peter’s potential girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). It’s also nice to see that this iteration of Spidey is kind of a wise-ass: “You know, in the future, if you’re gonna steal cars, don’t dress like a car thief, man.”

'The Amazing Spider-Man': On the scene for the eye-popping nine-minute global sneak peek

One only need to skim the message boards for anything related to this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man to know what a marketing challenge Sony Pictures has in front of it. For every fanboy or fangirl who is already (mentally) standing in line to see director Marc Webb’s reboot of the masked web slinger, there’s another who is equally incensed by the notion that the world needs another Spidey origin story just 10 years after the last Spidey origin story, and five since the last Spidey film. Sure, awareness of the franchise likely couldn’t be higher, but whether audiences will make this new Spider-Man as big of a blockbuster as the last Spider-Man remains an open question.

So when you’ve got to make a big impression, swing for the fences. Today, at a global event simulcast across three continents, Sony unveiled the new 3-D trailer for the film, as well as a nearly nine-minute long, 2-D sizzle reel that featured an extended look at the electric chemistry between stars Andrew Garfield (as Peter Parker) and Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy). We also got our first look at the reptilian alter ego of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), i.e. the Lizard. READ FULL STORY

Why is the 'Amazing Spider-Man' logo appearing on iconic buildings across the globe?

On Sat., Jan. 28, a familiar red spider was projected on the side of some of the most iconic structures in the world, including The Sydney Opera House, the Colesseum in Rome, the Kremlin in Moscow, and the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. The image was followed by a country-specific URL — in the U.S., it’s theuntoldstorybegins.com — that pointed visitors to a special, mysterious screening on Monday, Feb. 6 of… something related to or directly from this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man.

When asked what this screening is about, and why the Spidey logo is also showing up on buildings in New York City, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Rio de JaneiroMadrid, London, Berlin, Seoul, and Tokyo, Sony Pictures only offers a coy no comment.  READ FULL STORY

New 'Amazing Spider-Man' poster: It's beginning to look a lot like Christopher Nolan

There are currently two primary types of superhero movies: the moody Nolanesque thriller and the sprightly Favreauvian action-comedy. Judging by the new poster for next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man, the back-to-high-school reboot will be moving the franchise into some decidedly darker, Dark Knight-ier territory. The poster even has the same shadowy aesthetic color scheme as the just-released one-sheet for The Dark Knight Rises: same distinctive visual, same urban grit, same straightforward tagline. In this case, Amazing Spider-Man claims to be “The Untold Story.” For a brief moment, I thought that catchphrase indicated that the movie would be drawing from Untold Tales of Spider-Man, a stealth classic throwback series which was basically the only source for good Spider-Man stories in the 1990s. But I’m guessing the line is actually just a tease about the appearance in Amazing of Peter Parker’s biological parents, who are in the trailer just long enough to establish that Peter Parker is an orphan… kind of like Bruce Wayne.

Sony is done paying for 3-D glasses, and NATO isn't happy about it

Sony sent shock waves through the film industry when it announced yesterday that, starting in May 2012, it would no longer subsidize the cost of 3-D glasses for its releases.

Understandably, the bold move has many parties concerned. After all, someone has to pay for the hordes of expensive frames.

But according to the National Association of Theater Owners, exhibitors don’t want to be the ones to do it! NATO has just issued a rather disgruntled response. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Sony schedules 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' for May 2014

Though audiences still have to wait until next July 3 for The Amazing Spider-Man to hit theaters, Sony is clearly very bullish on its reboot of the web-slinging franchise — so much so that they’ve already greenlit a sequel and staked out a release date of May 2, 2014 for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. “It speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment,” says a studio source. No further information is available on the sequel at this point, though it seems safe to assume that the new Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield, will be back wearing the suit again. But hey, it’s never too early for fanboys to start lobbying for their favorite villains, so have at it: Who would you like to see Spider-Man square off against in the franchise’s next chapter?

Comic-Con 2011: Did the fans like their first looks at 'Spider-Man' and 'Total Recall' reboots?

Would the new Spider-Man be truly Amazing? That was one of the big questions for the fans who packed into Comic-Con’s Hall H for the Sony Pictures panel, which debuted first looks at The Amazing Spider-Man; the Total Recall remake; and the Ghost Rider sequel, Spirit of Vengeance. So what was the verdict? Well, one small Spidey fan told EW’s Darren Franich that “the effects were amazing” — so it would appear mission: accomplished for her, at least.

The famed web-slinger wasn’t the only one in the Comic-Con hot seat, however. How would Colin Farrell fare taking the lead in Total Recall in a role once played by Arnold Schwarzenegger? And how would the fans take to Nicolas Cage returning to Ghost Rider‘s hellacious hog, especially since the first film wasn’t precisely well-received?

Rhys Ifans, 'Amazing Spider-Man' villain, cited for incident with Comic-Con security

Not all the action takes place on stage at Comic-Con. A little drama occurred backstage at Friday night’s panel with the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man. San Diego police confirm Rhys Ifans, the actor who’ll play Dr. Curt Connors (otherwise known as The Lizard) in the reboot, was issued a misdemeanor citation of one count of battery for allegedly shoving a female security guard after a member of his entourage was denied entrance into Hall H without the proper credentials. (The Wrap first reported the incident.) In a statement to EW, a rep for Sony, the studio behind the film, says, “Rhys Ifans was detained by Comic-Con security after a brief incident backstage prior to and immediately following the Amazing Spider-Man panel. Police were notified and a citation was issued to Mr. Ifans, who deeply regrets this incident.” A rep for Comic-Con told EW it’s a long-standing convention policy not to comment on matters of security.

Ifans visited EW’s VIP Comic-Con lounge in San Diego earlier in the day Friday with his castmates Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and director Marc Webb. Watch a clip from the video interview below. (Reporting by Adam B. Vary) READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con 2011: 'The Amazing Spider-Man' cast on gritty reboot, Dr. Lizard, and cheeseburgers

After appearing on EW’s cover, Andrew Garfield — and the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man — slung his web into EW’s VIP Comic-Con lounge to chat about the gritty reboot of the series set for theaters on July 3, 2012. Why reboot a franchise that saw its last film (Spider-Man 3) released as recent as 2007? “[Spider-Man is] one of the most cinematic characters in the comics universe,” director Marc Webb told EW’s Jess Cagle during their sit-down, which also included Emma Stone, who will play Gwen Stacy, and Rhys Ifans, set to portray Dr. Curt Connors (otherwise known as The Lizard). And Garfield, for one, has a strong passion for the comics character: “It meant so much to me,” he told EW about being a part of The Amazing Spider-Man. Click the jump to listen to Stone describe her character (who, she jokes, “because of my sincerely limited range is a little sassy and sarcastic), Webb discuss why he cast Garfield in the role (surprisingly, it has to do with a cheeseburger), and Dr. Lizard talk dirty.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' trailer: Watch it here! Does it make you forget about Tobey Maguire?

Just in time for preview night at Comic-Con, the first official trailer for next year’s Amazing Spider-Man reboot has hit the internet. The film marks a somewhat risky attempt to restart the Spider-Man franchise by refocusing on Peter Parker’s high school years (which were quickly left behind in the Sam Raimi-Tobey Maguire trilogy). To judge by the trailer, the tone of Amazing is darker than the earlier trilogy — moody music plays over David Fincher-y shots of Andrew Garfield walking down the halls of school, clearly not too popular despite the fact that he stole Pauly D’s hair. The video actually opens with footage of Peter’s parents — who have a somewhat confusing history in the comic book world that I won’t get into, since that appears to be spoiler territory — leaving him with his Aunt and Uncle, never to return. Since Spidey is already kind of a weepy character — Uncle Ben, no! — it’s interesting to see that they’re doubling down on the misery by focusing so heavily on the fact that Peter is apparently an orphan. Check out the trailer and see for yourself: READ FULL STORY
