The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Trailer
After two days of me ranting about Spider-Man, I thought I’d be done. But today Sony released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. *sigh*
Well, I’ve watched it twice. I like the stuff about Peters parents, but I liked it when it was promised in the first film too. It does look like it’ll be more prevalent in this film which is great. The story of Peter’s parents is the best thing this franchise has going for it.
I’m not into what they’ve done to Electro. Electro is my favorite Spider-Man villain. I liked that Spider-Man had to solve how to beat him, because webs wouldn’t stick, and punching him would cause electrocution. Spidey figured out that if he wore rubber booties and gloves he would be fine. It was the perfect combo of the brains of Peter Parker and the fighting style of Spider-Man.
And Electro wasn’t just muscle for Oscorp. He was his own person with his own reasons for hating Spider-Man. The opening VO says “Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make” … but it’s not more enemies, it’s one enemy. One your father made. Rhino, Electro, Goblin… they’re all having their strings pulled by Oscorp / Norman Osborn.
Oh, and at 1:15 in, you can see Vulture’s wings and Dr Octopus arms. I can bet we’ll see those in 3.
Would love to know what you guys think.
Gravity - Trailer
Alfonso Cuarón’s first feature since 2006. I think it looks great, but like, there’s no way either of these two are going to survive right? This is the guy who directed Children of Men… the ending wasn’t exactly happy, and he’s not known for keeping characters alive.
World War Z - Trailer
I read this book. This looks nothing like it. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, it just needs to be pointed out.
I always thought Brad Pitt was going to be the journalist traveling around collecting stories from survivors. He’s not. He’s definitely doing something else.
Halo 4 - Launch Trailer
In keeping with tradition this Halo trailer is filled with live action moments. And, in keeping with tradition, they all look amazing. Oh, and this was produced by David Fincher, so take that for what you will.
Halo 4 launches on November 6th. And. I. Can. Not. Wait.
Skyfall - International Trailer
Well. This looks incredible. Also, reminds me a lot of You Only Live Twice. Not saying that’s a bad thing, just pointing it out.
I’m looking forward to Amazing Spider-Man (or Spider-Man 1A… I’m using a Back to the Future style alternate-timeline naming convention and applying it to these movies, because Marvel can claim ‘untold story’ all the want, but this does not exist in the same universe). I think I know where the story is going for the next two movies based on what they’re showing in the trailers and it’s parts of Peter Parkers life that you don’t often see.
Caution spoilers dating back to 1973 ahead.
