INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
As predictable as the sunrise, a bootleg of the teaser trailer for Columbia Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man has leaked online ahead of its official release with Captain America: The First Avenger. The opening seconds are dark and shaky — the footage is cellphone-captured, after all — but quickly becomes steady and clear, revealing an engaging glimpse of Spider-Man’s origin, followed by a vertigo-inducing sequence that puts viewers in our hero’s place, leaping and swinging from building to building over the streets of New York City.
Watch the teaser here, while it lasts. Directed by Marc Webb, the franchise reboot stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse. It opens on July 3, 2012.
