With The Avengers breaking every imaginable record at the box-office, and most movie fans anxiously awaiting The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, it seems that The Amazing Spider-Man may have got lost in the shuffle of where the movie-going public has been focusing its attention.
Well, Sony Pictures isn't having that, so after releasing a brand-new 3D trailer last week with The Avengers, they've decided to unleash what is being called a "super-preview" of Marc Webb's reboot of The Amazing Spider-Man. According to an official plot synopsis, "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."
