This movie has my money because it's Spider-Man but there are still plenty of elements that I remain unconvinced about.

Even if Sony messes up the marketing and makes the general audience confused

"I thought Tobey was in this?"

the Spider-man name alone will still make this movie a box office smash.

It's Spider-man for gosh sakes.

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

As much as I've advocated giving this a chance, I agree the marketing campaign and the slogans used for this movie are going to make fans eyes roll a bit. I think this is the first poster that I actually don't like from the film so far.

Yep, just like the Batman name alone made B&R a smash...and the Superman name alone made the Bryan Singer movie a smash...and the Green Lantern name alone made that movie a smash...

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

I'm actually concerned about the box office for this film. It only has two weeks to dominate before "The Dark Knight Rises" knocks it off. It will most likely own the July long weekend. The following weekend as well but will falter to "The Dark Knight Rises". I can see it in the top three after that for a couple more weeks.

I'm not concerned . The sooner Spider-Man fails for Sony and falls back into Marvel Studio's clutches, the better.

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

You realize that it is probably going to cost around a billion or so dollars (maybe not that high but it is going to be very costly) for Disney/Marvel to regain the character rights? If this one under performs, Sony will merely wait another year or two and reboot it with a different director and writer and keep doing this so that Marvel is denied a chance at buying it back.

Actually, they don't need to buy it back. The rights would revert back to Marvel automatically if Sony wasn't using them for a couple of years. But yeah, they'd probably try to produce at least one more reboot before they'd let that happen.

I don't know if it's the same.

Certainly Spider-man has a lot more recognition than Green Lantern.

Batman and Robin opened quite well and made money but didn't pick up repeat viewings because of the awful reviews and word of mouth.

And Superman Returns also made money, but had a huge budget because the costs of all the abortive Superman projects over the previous decade were tied round its neck. It also went up against X-Men: The Last Stand and Pirates of The Carribean and was badly promoted and marketed.

The three Spider-man movies to date have been huge hits and are still relatively fresh within people's memories. Spider-man 3 isn't greatly rated but I don't think the general public hates it as much as a section of fandom does (and it was the most successful of the 3 at the box office), certainly not to Batman and Robin depths.

That's why it has to fail spectacularly.

But really, if Sony keeps the rights forever, it serves Marvel right for signing such a stupid deal in the first place.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" Debuts New Theatrical Poster: a new poster for director Marc Webb's Columbia Pictures franchise reboot has surfaced on AddictoMovie that puts the high-swinging wall-crawler, and his web-shooters, front and center.

SNIP[/IMG]

"He is back and it will be amazing"?

That's the tagline now?

Seriously?

It is interesting largely only because it seems to signal ("He is back" replacing "untold" story) that Sony has perhaps decided that maybe no one wants a remake of a ten year old superhero film and they had better try marketing it as another sequel.

That's not an official poster.

1. Marvel Studios isn't involved with this movie... at all.

2. Sony/Columbia's logo is nowhere to be found here is a dead giveaway.

Marvel was pretty much sinking, they HAD to sign over the rights.

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

They were in Chapter Eleven at the time they sold all their character rights. I didn't know that Marvel doesn't have to buy it back, that they just have to wait, then yeah Sony would definitely try again.
