Looks okay to me. I think it's one of those action figures that's actually supposed to be, ya know, played with.

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.
I'm prolly in the minority on this (I often am, come to think of it), but my favorite aspect of super-hero lore is the origin story. Typically, after a slam-bang origin issue or movie, it's all downhill from there. And in the case of Spidey, he has the best origin in comics history, IMO.

This didn't look like a "gritty, realistic world" to me. It did, however, look like a low-quality, dark bootleg of a trailer.
The producers are playing up the concept that this is a more "gritty realistic" movie in the current issue of Ent. Wkly.

That first-person sequence is going to look amazing in 3D (once they polish up the CGI).

That looks awsome! That (and Avengers) was easily one of the best first trailers I have seen in quite a while. Next year is going to be an amazing year for geek movie fans!

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

Everything I've seen from this reboot in the last few weeks has me super excited. I was never a big fan of the Sam Raimi movies, but I thought they were all fun (though the 3rd was painful).

When Marc Webb signed on... The odd choice of director sold me on the idea of a reboot. I loved (500) Days of Summer. Subsequently, everything is looking good from the production so far.

The trailer just raises my hopes even more. At this point, I'm thinking I may have crossed into a point where the actual movie cannot live up to my expectations though.

You tricked me by making a flash gif, but it was a good trick.
Was holding off on watching it. Can't wait to see the full thing Friday with Cap!

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

I think it looks pretty cool! I really like the cast and the first-person sequence. Looks like they changed the tone quite a bit compared to the Raimi films.
Also, I loved Webb's "(500) Days of Summer", so I'm definitely looking forward to this!

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

Surprised that they're using something like the comics' ideas about Peter's parents. That was one of the more out-there ideas that doesn't normally get brought into the other media adaptations.

Looks interesting.

I look forward to the reports of audience members barfing en masse in their seats.

This is supposed to be a movie, not a frelling videogame. Same the cheesy first person for the PS3.
