Film Trailers: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
How many damn villains can they put in this film? Remember how horrible Spider-Man 3 by Sam Raimi was when he had more than one main villain in the film. This does not look interesting at all to me. I like Emma Stone and I think Paul Giamatti is a really fine actor, but this looks cartoonish, silly and too stupid to even remotely get excited about. Jamie Foxx as Electro does look fairly cool, but that is not enough. At least Sam Raimi's first two Spider-Man films were ok and not too silly. Good, well written villains too. This looks like a video game. And, the first film in this reboot by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man, was not that good to begin with in the first place. A moneymaker for the fanboys and kids, and nothing more than escapist, superhero/comic book film. It has taken over Hollywood... The films stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Denis Leary, Sally Field, Campbell Scott, Martin Sheen, Felicity Jones and Chris Cooper. A release date of May 2, 2014 to start off the summer blockbuster season. Here is the trailer. Enjoy?
