So earlier today Sony Pictures went all out for “The Amazing Spider-Man” event, which kicked off by showing the trailer followed by an 8-minute sizzle reel. The event was a global event for the fans that took place in 13 cities around the world.
The event kicked off at 3pm EST with Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) in New York, Director Marc Webb in Los Angeles, Rhys Ifans (Dr. Curt Connors) in London, and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) along with producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach in Rio de Janeiro. The filmmakers and lead cast came together via satellite to answer questions and show the fans the 2½-minute trailer as well as a special extended sneak preview of the film.
Marc Weinstock, president, Worldwide Marketing for Sony Pictures said:
“As we were looking to debut the next trailer, it was important to us to share it with some of our most dedicated fans first. We’re thrilled that we were also able to bring our cast and filmmakers together with moviegoers from all over the world to premiere the trailer and give them a special sneak peek at some extended footage.”
What I found interesting was they asked Emma Stone about the difference between her character Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane, to which she said:
“Gwen Stacy loved Peter Parker and Mary Jane loved Spider-Man, Gwen gets along with her Dad and Mary Jane doesn’t, they are polar opposites”
I sort of like the idea of Gwen Stacy in this film because if I recall in the comic books, she is Peter Parker’s first love.
This brings an interesting topic when… And you know it’s coming…when the sequel to “The Amazing Spider-Man” comes out, will they kill her off? Will they re-introduce the Green Goblin because as you can see by checking out the new trailer OSCORP has a big part in the film? Which also brings a good question, will you see a small cameo of Norman Osborn?
Only time will tell.
Now I’m not going to get into the full details of what I saw at the event because you can see the new full trailer below. And let the madness begin. I thought it looked so good in 2D and especially in 3D due to the fact that it was shot in 3D and doesn’t have to be converted.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” will do drug dealer dollars on July 3, 2012.
