Here is the first international trailer of The Amazing Spider-Man 2! It’s a thrilling trailer a bit shorter than the domestic but it packs a punch! It starts off excellently and it’s great to see 3 villains in the mix, even though it worries me since superhero films with too many characters bloats the story. I think the film will do huge box office numbers and break the $752,216,557 it made worldwide with its first part.
When I first heard about the remake of Spider-Man, I was not excited since the Sam Raimi version was still in the consciousness of everyone. The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield was a modestly entertaining film that felt much more teen-driven than the original and lacked the humor Toby Maguire infused it with in his version. To my surprise, it made $752,216,557 at the box office which led me to believe that no star or director is bigger than a legendary brand. It doesn’t matter who dons the tights, what matters is that the character is revived. Sony understood this and thus, here we have the first official trailer of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’. After the break, you can also see my 1:1 interview with Andrew Garfield about Spider-Man and his concerns with him being Spidey…
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
