'The Amazing Spider-Man' Four Minute Trailer and Poster from Cannes

The Amazing Spider-Man four minute trailer

A new four-minute trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man aired during "America’s Got Talent" on Monday night giving fans an extended look at what the new Spider-Man feature has to offer and now it's available online for all to watch (though, admittedly, I DVR'd "America’s Got Talent" so I can watch Howard Stern's debut appearance when I get back from Cannes).

Additionally, as you can see above, yet another poster prominently featured here in Cannes atop the hotel rooftops is one for Spidey's 3-D return to theaters come July 3.

Directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and starring Andrew Garfield in the title role, the story focuses on Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (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 (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 (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.

    how dare they call this the most anticipated summer film? TDKR, prometheus, avengers... this is actually quite nowhere.
    Nice trailer though, I really am looking forward for this too, and looks quite good, but still, not even vlose to THE most anticipated film in the summer.

      Are we really arguing about this again? Opinion are like... nvm. I'm sure to many it's their most anticipated film this Summer. Never know.

    It looks....well....amazing. I for one can't wait to see it. It's not my most anticipated film of the summer, that distinction belong to The Dark Knight Rises, but still, I will be at the theater on ASM's opening weekend.

    Looks like Marc Webb's style is lost in this. Like trying to find Burton in his Planet of the Apes and seeing nothing but cookie cutter summer movie directing. Not that I was expecting a split-screen of Parker's reality vs his expectations, but it's kinda sad to think this movie will not have any of the visual and editing spark of inventiveness that made 500 Days of Summer so interesting to enjoy. This trailer looks like anybody could have come up with those pre-vis'ed shots.

    This does look a bit more promising with each new piece of marketing. Hopefully they actually have something here.
