Yeah, I kind of hate this trailer. I knew from the beginning that Sony was going to screw up this marketing, but I kept my hopes up. But no, my former suspicions seem to be correct. Realizing that Twilight and I Am Number 4 are all the rage and “hip”, Sony is trying to sell this film as an “edgy” Spider-Man. Is it really like that, or is Sony just spinning the trailer so it appears that way? I don’t know, but I hope I found out soon enough when the film is presented this Friday at Comic Con. Let’s just hope we can get that first person, Mirror’s Edge-esque crap out the window. It looks…just terrible.
While there’s no official plot synopsis for this film yet but, judging from this trailer, Edward Cullen gets bit by a radioactive spider and becomes a Spid-pire, meets the chick from Easy A, and plays Mirrors Edge for a while. Oh, don’t miss the red pipe! Aw…he did. The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3, 2012.
