The Amazing Spider-Man 2 International Trailer #2

Official Synopsis: It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

That was fast.  The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 only came out about a week and a half ago, now we get another international trailer.  This trailer has some new stuff mixed with some stuff from the other recent trailer.  However, this shows much more of the lightheartedness that needs to be in a Spider-Man movie.  Spider-Man is always cracking jokes, even in the middle of his fights, and I feel the movies have had difficulty capturing that aspect of him.  The Amazing Spider-Man started off laid-back, but Spidey became more serious as the movie went on.  Same with the Sam Raimi trilogy.  If the tone of this trailer continues throughout the entire film, I will be so happy.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, directed by Marc Webb, will be in theaters May 2, 2014 and sees the return of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, and Sally Field as Aunt May, as well as introducing Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn.

This trailer is packed full of action, which looks amazing (pun intended).  More importantly, we get good shots of several villains, including Electro, Rhino, and the Green Goblin.  There were also glimpses of the Vulture’s wings and Doctor Octopus’s arms in an OsCorp facility about halfway through the trailer.  It looks like they are moving towards the Sinister Six, but I have mixed feelings about Sony bringing them in this early, if that is the route they are going.  As much as I want to see the Sinister Six on screen, they should be a culmination of villains introduced throughout several films, not new ones introduced that movie.  It also goes back to one of the reasons I enjoyed the first Amazing Spider-Man: a single villain.  Having too many enemies to focus on (usually) moves the focus away from the hero and their supporting cast.

In any case, I’m excited for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Any chance to see Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter and Gwen is a treat.  Finally seeing why Peter’s parents just up and left, and what was/is going on at OsCorp should be interesting.  There is more to Aunt May than meets the eye, she already looks like a much deeper character than her comic book counterpart.

I, Frankenstein Trailer

Synopsis (from video description): 200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind.

I’m kind of iffy on this one. It looks like Frankenstein’s Monster has become some sort of monster hunter himself, almost a Van Helsing feel to him. Kind of an interesting turn of fate, I guess, that could be an interesting twist on the character. I get an Underworld vibe about the film, but it is comes from one of the co-writers of that movie, so I guess that is to be expected.

I, Frankenstein hits theaters January 24, 2014. Directed by Stuart Beattie and staring Yvonne Strahovski, Aaron Eckhart, Jai Courtney, Miranda Otto, Caitlin Stasey, Kevin Grevioux, and Aden Young.
