Watch the Four-Minute Preview For The Amazing Spider-Man

As promised, Columbia Pictures premiered a four-minute “super preview” for The Amazing Spider-Man last night during the season premiere of America’s Got Talent, and it was well worth the wait. Packed with new footage from director Marc Webb’s franchise reboot, the promo strikes a balance between action and character, and includes a riveting scene of Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) risking his life — to say nothing of his secret identity — to save a child from a flaming car dangling from a bridge.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). 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 (Emma Stone), 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 (Rhys Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

The film, which opens July 3, also stars Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse.

    Don’t like the reboot idea, but the suit, and the Spider-man look, is WAY BETTER!
    Garfiled acts better, and the lizard is a great villain!!

    Looking forward to see this one!
    What a great year!!

    If actors are so vain they don’t want to wear the masks then they shouldn’t play superheroes.

    …most anticipated…?  I like Spider-Man and all, but I think they’re getting a bit full of themselves.  Most polls I’ve seen regarding super-hero films always had Spider-Man coming in at a dead last.

    So, why doesn’t Spidey just crawl in there and grab the kid instead of taking his dear old time? And why does this kid only freak out after Spidey shows up and not be freaked out by dangling in a car above a river hanging only by a small line?

    And was that car soaked in gas or something before it fell? Cuz it damn sure went up in flames quick… thanks to a… randomly exploding headlight??
