Maybe they should start remaking the Harry Potter films too. After all, a lot of kids today weren't old enough to see the first movie when that came out ten years ago either.

Personally, I'm hoping for a BBC miniseries

Sure. Why not? It isn't like anyone can watch ten year old movies on DVD, Blue-ray, download or broadcast TV already.

A darker, more mature route for Spider-Man with this film would, I think, be utterly fantastic.
So nothing like the comics?

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

This definitely has more of an Ultimate Spider-Man feel than 616 Spider-Man. You can have a gritty, realistic approach without losing the humor and fun that make Peter Parker who he is. I think most comic fans forget what a tragic life Peter Parker has led since he lost his parents in the plane crash, yet through it out he continues to persevere and learn from those experiences.

I know the fear for me when this was first announced that they would make this more like "Batman" or a "Twilight" film but I have the up most confidence in Webb after seeing "500 Days of Summer". I think people should watch that movie to see how he handled those characters. There was a great balance of humor and "dark" moments in that film.

I agree about the use of the POV. I hope that was just for the trailer because that will give me motion sickness in a theater and probably trigger a migraine as well.

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

I caught the trailer. I really liked it. It does seem considerably darker and more mature than the Raimi films, but I think that's a great approach. It also looks like they are trying to find a different conduit into the origins by exploring Peter's actual parents. I think that's a cool and different approach, and plus, you can't go wrong with Campbell Scott.

Honestly, the POV swinging sequence definitely felt like it could have come from the opening title sequence of Panic Room. The cinematography has these muted, dark colors that definitely seem reminiscent of Fincher. It's weird because I wasn't expecting the film to have this tone. I was judging from (500) Days of Summer, Marc Webb's debut, which was a pretty bright and relatively light-hearted film with some serious moments. The Amazing Spider-Man looks and feels completely different, though.

I'm on-board.

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

I wouldn't be surprised if the POV sequence was shot specifically for this trailer. The original Spidey movie has the big, elaborate bank heist with the helicopter for it's teaser, and this also looks like something that could have been thrown together fairly easily.

You'd just need a free runner in a costume and some creative camera moves.

The POV webswing has been compared ALOT to a video game's graphics. Specifically "Mirrors Edge"

again, it reminds me of Strange Days, and scenes like this (warning, foul language and violence):

I hope the POV sequence was created specifically for the trailer. The CGI was pretty bad. Even though I'm well aware the film is more than a year away from release and the CGI will look considerably better in a year. It just seems like it was recently created.

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

I'm starting to wonder now how they're going to fit The Lizard into this gritty, realistic world. It wouldn't be that hard to buy him in one of Raimi's colorful, comic booky movies, but in this one?

Heck, even having a guy swinging around the city in a red and blue costume seems like kind of a stretch.

This didn't look like a "gritty, realistic world" to me. It did, however, look like a low-quality, dark bootleg of a trailer.

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

Well I was definitely getting a slight indie movie feel from some of those shots, like the one of him by the shipyards. And the general tone certainly didn't seem all that comic booky.

First photos of the Spider-man figure

Not as good as my figure from the first movie. That has 30 points of articulation

Ha ha. I like the new costume, but that is one shitty looking action figure.
