New 'Amazing Spider-Man' Trailer: Whoa! He Knows Kung-fu

Posted 2:46 AM February 7th, 2012 by Binh Ngo

If you're feeling bummed that you didn't get a chance to see the new Amazing Spider-Man trailer and some special footage at the earlier event today, don't be, because the new trailer is now online. Check it out below.

As you can see, unlike the first trailer, the new one disposes of how Peter Parker became Spider-Man. Instead, it shows more of what Peter is struggling with in his personal life as well as that of the masked vigilante.

The main thrust of the story is Peter's desire to find out what happened to his parents, and the closer he gets to the truth...well, we'll have to wait until the movie comes out to find out for that.

We also get to see more of the web slinger as well. Unlike Toby Maguire's Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield's is skinnier and lacking in the muscle department. At least, that's what it looks like to me.

The web shooter seems to have gotten a high tech upgrade. There's now a digital gauge showing how much web fluid is remaining, and it emits a red light whenever it's fired.

Oh, Spider-Man may know Kung-fu, or that's what it looks like one of those action scenes.

Overall, I like what I saw. Andrew Garfield looks like he'll do okay as the new face of Spider-Man. Emma Stone is the girl next door a geek can totally fall for.

The only problem that I can see with the new Spider-Man reboot has less to do with the movie itself and more with its timing. It has only been around four years since Spider-Man 3 hit the screens, do we really want to re-watch the Spider-Man origin story again?

Well, the movie is in 3D and there is that mystery surround his parents so maybe that will help bring in people who've been petered out by all those previous Spider-Man movies.

The Amazing Spider-Man is coming to theaters July 3 and the movie stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, and Denis Leary.
