The Amazing Spider-Man b-roll footage lands on the mattress

Posted by CB Droege

Colombia Pictures has released a bevy of b-roll footage for The Amazing Spider-Man.

The videos contain lots of little clips; mostly behind-the-scenes stuff as shot by secondary cameras. There’s a lot here, and you should go in expecting spoilers.

The most interesting thing to me here is the close look at the stunts and physical effects. We’d heard that a lot of Spidey’s swinging and slinging would be done with a CGI character, but it looks like the CGI has been reserved for the wide city-swinging  shots. They’re certainly not putting any stunt-men out of a job with this one.

Here’s the theatrical trailer for the film:

and the official synopsis:

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3rd, 2012.
