Prepare to see plenty of buzz about the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie throughout the day thanks to Spidey's marketing team. You may have seen a website titled theuntoldstorybegins.com/#, and you may have noticed that it's currently pretty bare with the exception of the list of select cities where fans can schedule a screening to an event that "you will not want to miss" on Monday, February 6th, 2012. What does it mean? What is the screening for? What will it reveal? Well, no one really knows (yet), but If you happen to live in one of the select cities then you may want to sign up to check out the screening for yourself.
In addition to the suspense behind the screening, people living in these select cities may also have noticed a not so subtle marketing campaign by the film's production company. That giant, bleeding red spider splashed across famous landmark buildings such as the Sydney Opera House in Australia and the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France were no accident; and we think it might be related to tomorrow's big reveal. Several eyewitnesses caught the projection of the image on film.== TEASER ==
So what will be revealed during the screening? While that continues to remain a mystery, we do have some significant news about the upcoming film straight from the film's director, Marc Webb. Latino Review recently obtained a copy of the Comic-Con Annual magazine where Webb discusses the upcoming film, due to hit theaters on July 3rd, 2012. In it, the movie director reveals how this Peter Parker is very different from Sam Raimi's Peter Parker and how actress Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy character will challenge Peter mentally, and definitely keep him on his toes.
We’ve seen Mary Jane. I also think that Gwen Stacy is a young scientifically minded woman who’s super smart, maybe even a little bit smarter than Peter at times. I like that dynamic, that there was a rivalry between the two of them in some way. And I think Emma and Andrew’s chemistry really describes that in a fun, very intimate way.
In addition to that little tidbit, Webb also divulges on the decision to shoot The Amazing Spider-Man in 3-D and how if there were ever a film that should be 3-D, it's Spidey's.
When we first talked about it, it was in the heyday of 3D and there was a lot of craziness about it. But it was never forced upon us. I thought if there’s ever a movie that should be in 3D, it’s Spider-Man for crying out loud. And watching it in 3D, particularly in IMAX, even the early stuff I’ve seen, it’s fantastic. You get a visceral feeling that you don’t get any other way when you have good 3D. We shot this all in stereo so it was native 3D. Nothing has been converted. And when you get that scope, the movie gradually expands. It starts off in a very intimate, small way and gradually expands to take advantage of that sensation. So do you have to see it in 3D? No, you’ll still get the thrill of it. But those point-of-view sequences, those came very directly from a philosophy about putting the audience in Spider-Man’s shoes. We wanted them to feel what he feels, and that’s where those sequences came from.
Webb reveals the depth of the relationship between Dr. Curt Connors who starts out as an ally of Parker's but gradually becomes one of his greatest adversaries. Webb is adamant about his film being very different from the previous Spider-Man film's we've seen. You can check out the complete interview here.
What do you think of the upcoming movie? Are you getting excited for the film's release? Do you think Webb's vision for Spider-Man is very different from Raimi's?
