While there’s almost no chance this Japanese Amazing Spider-Man trailer’s going to change your tune on the film — unless you’re easily swayed by these things — those who’d like some new footage have a perfect video for their Sunday afternoon. Among the new material standouts include some more character interactions with Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Uncle Ben and Aunt May, respectively; a few extra shots of Rhys Ifans‘ Lizard (that sounds inappropriate); C. Thomas Howell; and just an extra indicator or two as to how Andrew Garfield will bring Peter Parker to life. (No surprise: We’re good on that front.) The rest is stuff you’ve seen before and will, no doubt, see again and again until the movie hits theaters.
Watch the preview below:
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker, an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. 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, 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, his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’s alter ego The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man opens on July 3rd.
