Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Wow, talk about a radical change in style and tone from the previous movies. This is much more gritty and real than I was expecting, and almost looks more like a David Fincher movie. Awesome.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I got a Batman Begins/Dark Knight psychological vibe from the bootlegged trailer. A darker, more mature route for Spider-Man with this film would, I think, be utterly fantastic.

That first-person sequence gave me a headache. There's no way in hell I'll see this in 3D.

Now that was a teaser.

So much better that The Dark Knight Rises teaser.

Haha yeah, not as good as The Avenger's, but definitely better than TDKR's teaser.

If that sequence is actually in the movie (I can't imagine it wouldn't be), the 3D might actually be worthwhile.

It was definitely a good teaser.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I'm kind of amazed and impressed that Sony actually went for this. They had such a sure thing with the bright, happy, comic booky style, and I'm not really sure if audiences are going to go for this in the same way.

I'm definitely much more excited for it though.

^ Well, David Fincher was on their shortlist of directors first time round; I think he didn't get it because he wanted to forgo the origin story.

That's like comparing Iron Man's trailer with The Dark Knight trailer.

Some want to show alot and some want to tease you.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Well, they're not films - they're advertisements. Different approaches work best for selling different projects. The Batman folks want their established legion of fans to know that they're going to get what they've loved in the past in terms of the tone and characters; the ad is full of call-backs to past events and foreboding about darkness and desperation to come. These people also know that this minimalistic tease and viral ads have worked really well for them in the past.

The Spider-Man people are saying "you haven't seen this before, not really, not like this."

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The thing for me is this: I just saw a Spiderman origin movie, less than ten years ago. I don't need to see another. I would have rather they just recast and do a "soft reboot" (ala the Hulk). This might be a good remake of the Raimi film but, for all intents and purposes its still basically a remake.

Yes, I see that. Seems a weird bit of casting. I'm used to her playing overly dramatic women that go batshit crazy.
Actually, during the 60s and 70s Aunt May pretty much was an overly dramatic woman who would go batshit crazy. She had more near heart attacks from stress than Fred Sanford faked.

They probably wanted to make it clear that this wasn't the same Spidey we saw in the previous movies. It does seem strange to be seeing the same events again so soon, but at the same time I'm kinda curious to see what a more adult take on the origin would look like.

Plus I get the impression those events are going to impact the story and reverberate in a much deeper way than we saw before.

There's presumed to be an audience for this movie that wasn't spending money ten years ago.

Did the POV shots remind anyone else of Strange Days?
