Tonight the first trailer for the upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man was unleashed on the world. This was an exciting moment for fans who had been waiting with bated breath to see what was in store for their much-loved character. As well as the release of the trailer, special “sneak previews” were held in several major cities around the world. Thanks to Sony Pictures Australia, we were lucky enough to attend one held in Sydney.

The special previews which were advertised online, gave fans an extended look at the film and the brand new cast. Fans who turned up would not have been disappointed. As well as seeing some footage of the film, attendees were also given an Amazing Spider-Man t-shirt, and pass to see the movie for free (valid from opening day) once it does open in July.


Sydney fans were lucky enough to be the first in the world to see the full trailer in 3D. We thought it looked very slick! The 3D technology lends itself to this sort of film well, and in the trailer it seemed to add to the film rather than feeling gimmicky or distracting. Those who have been lucky enough to go on the Spider-Man amusement park ride at Universal Studios, might find that the 3D footage feels a lot like the 3D on the ride. Andrew Garfield looked pretty great! He appears to pull off the action scenes and manages to put lots of emotion into the character. Emma Stone looks like a fantastic fit for the role of Gwen Stacy, and the chemistry between her and Garfield was good.

We can officially announce that we are looking forward to this film! We are certainly intrigued to see where the marketing campaign is heading. It will be interesting to see if the momentum can be maintained all the way to July.
