Finally, we get the second trailer for the anticipated Marc Webb Spider-Man remake movie based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comic books. The first one although considered a teaser trailer, was in my opinion almost a full length one, sure half of it was some first-person free-running scene from Spidey’s POV (that I doubt will even be in the movie) but still. It definitely showed a lot for a teaser, and this one goes a step further.
What I like about it: Spider-Man is actually funny! He ridicules and mocks a guy trying to jack a car, while being in the car in the back seat. This is the most important thing! As Peter Parker he is nervous and emotionally troubled by the conflicted scenario of both his personalities, his alter ego and his everyday self both have more problems then any teenager should ever face. But once he puts on the mask, he becomes more confident, the inspiration and wisdom from his dad, uncle, girlfriend and Mr. Connors are crystal cleared and he even has a very sarcastic and even goofy side when he fights crime as Spider-Man. He is driven by his mentors and his strong belief of justice and fairness. Its when he takes the mask off that he doesn’t know what to do. I think the Sam Raimi movies failed to show this in almost every level.
Another thing I like is that they show enough of the Lizard for us to see how cool and terrifying he is, but not enough to make this a highlight reel of the movie. Keep in mind though, the cardinal rule, don’t judge a movie by its trailer. This is nothing more then a cool trailer, in reality, this means nothing. Trailers are meant to make any movie look great, but this looks very convincing so far, and I am sold.
