New Amazing Spider-Man Trailer: Lizard Fights and Daddy Issues

Spider-Man trailer

Because nothing says "blockbuster of the season" like angsty daddy issues -- mingled with a barrage of cool CG-tastic effects and action shots and nerd bait -- Sony's unveiled the latest official trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, due in theaters July 3. Emphasis this time around is on what made emo-snarky Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) the super-powered jokester hero he is: Namely, losing Ma and Pa Parker as a kid.

This is the most complete-feeling trailer we've seen so far, with Parker's voice over literally explaining his character struggle to us over a melange of intriguing action-y bits, interspersed with the mushy stuff with Emma Stone. Photorealistic Lizard eyeballs! Ceiling chases! Web-slinging gone wrong! Most importantly, the effects here show more detail and look much more complete than in trailers and teasers past. Check it out and chime in below.

    I hadn't been too interested in this but that trailer has me a bit excited.

  • The trailer makes me think I need to se this in 3D. This excites and upsets me.

    I'm on board with this reboot of the franchise. I like that they're letting Andrew Garfield have more of a sense of humor with the role than Tobey Maguire had, and I'm really interested to see what Marc Webb does in the director's chair. Surely they didn't hire him for the pun value alone.

    Yeay for continuous action and one-shots. Looks like a very nice ride.
