Looking forward to the upcoming Spider-Man film? Hate movie surprises? Got four minutes? Then you might want to check out this “super preview,” of The Amazing Spider-Man, currently slated for a theater release on July 3rd. Rather than simply show four minutes of a single scene, this preview combines the main elements of several previously shown trailers and fleshes them out without (hopefully) revealing too much into the plot. We’d rather wait until July to learn the secret behind Peter Parker’s family, and find the true origins of Spider-Man. Enjoy.

The Amazing Spider-Man isn’t a sequel to the Sam Raimi-directed series of films, but rather a reboot of sorts that explores the “untold story” of Spider-Man. In this new trailer, we get a glimpse of plenty of unseen footage that finds the titular hero (played by Andrew Garfield from The Social Network) struggling with the magnitude of his inner conflict, the might of his enemies, and finding out the truth about his parents. The film also stars Emma Stone (playing Peter Parker’s early girlfriend Gwen Stacy), along with Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary and Rhys Ifans as Spider-Man’s nemesis, The Lizard. The Amazing Spider-Man is still slated for a July 3rd release. Enjoy.

The Amazing Spiderman in glorious 3D is set to hit theaters on July 3rd. Enjoy.
