Sony/Columbia has released some new hi-res stills from The Amazing Spider-Man. Some of them you may have already seen since we brought the versions with copy from EW or Empire. These are crisp and clean. We also have some new posters and concept art. I have to say, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, despite the fact that both are in their mid to late twenties (she’s 23, he’s 28), look convincing as high schoolers.
This version of Spiderman, directed by Marc Webb, goes back to the web slinger’s angsty teenage roots:
“Like most teenagers his age, Peter (Garfield) is trying to figure out who he is and how to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret that his father (Campbell Scott) held… a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man. This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story.”
The Amazing Spider-Man stars Garfield, Stone, Rhys Ifans (as Dr. Curt Connors in the first film in which the character becomes The Lizard), Denis Leary, Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz, Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The screenplay is by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. It’s scheduled for release on July 3rd in the US, 4th July in the UK, in 3D, of course.
