It's never too soon to start promoting a summer blockbuster:

Quote:
The internet campaign to land "Community" star Donald Glover the coveted role of Peter Parker in "The Amazing Spider-Man" may not have been successful, but the Twitter-cause did help influence some of the decoration in Spidey's bedroom.

Director Marc Webb revealed during several interviews that he included some references to Glover inside the set decoration of Peter Parker's bedroom. When MTV News spoke with Glover, he said that he was aware of the Easter egg, but couldn't reveal too much else about it.

"I was pretty aware of the Easter egg that Marc Webb put in there because he asked me—I guess when they were filming it—if it was ok to do it." Glover said. "I was like 'Sure.' For some reason, I didn't think they needed to ask my permission, but I guess they did. So there's some stuff in Spider-Man's bedroom that's reflective of his musical or television taste."

While Glover could confirm that there is something included in Peter's room, he couldn't say what exactly. "I don't know. I'm not allowed to talk about it. I had to sign some stuff, but I think it's pretty dope," he said.

Glover even joked that Peter could have DVDs from "30 Rock," the show he wrote for before starring on "Community." "He has all the '30 Rock' DVDs, and he has my name circled on all of them. It's like a 'Cape Fear' thing where he's doing pushups and stuff and it's kind of like he's out for me."

Quote:
The Amazing Spider-Man has made much of its telling of "the untold story" in its press materials, and director Marc Webb has revealed that a slightly different origin story will play out across his movie and its potential sequels.

"I wanted to give the audience something new, so that started off with getting underneath the parents’ story, which will unfold over probably a few movies,” Webb told MTV. “We don’t totally wrap up that story in this first movie. It’s sort of an ongoing mystery. That was something that was interesting to me.”

The death of Peter Parker's parents was never really dealt with in Sam Raimi's adaptation, but according to Webb, it was one of the key elements that drew him to the film.

"There are elements that we were very conscious of,” he says, “but it all emanated from [the idea of] this kid who got left behind by his parents many, many years before. I thought that was interesting enough for me to explore."

"This is probably a reveal,” he continues, “but there is no wrestling match in this movie. The character is evolving in a different way. It’s about finding a balance between iconic elements of the Spider-Man mythology. Uncle Ben’s death transforms him emotionally, but it happens in a different way."

The Amazing Spider-Man opens in the UK on 4 July 2012.

Right, but it's still an origin story, whether its a littler different or not, fact of the matter is that it comes down to peter parker being bit a by a spider and becoming spider-man.

I just don't think it can be as impactful to comic movies as Raimi movie. The movie may be good but I don't think it will be as good as Spider-Man 1 or 2. It can give us good stories sure but it can't be as good as what was never really messed up.
Spider-man 3 wasn't the best but it was still pretty good entertainment wise.

Yeah it def won't be as impactful as the Raimi movies, i mean that was the first time we saw Spider-man on the big screen, the whole wow factor of seeing Spider-man on screen has gone away.

Beating a dead horse on this , but rebooting this franchise is the dumbest thing ever

If it wasn't for Avengers and Dark Knight Rises this movie might have stood a chance in hype. But the fact is No one in the Comic Book world is anticipating this film

I don't think so.... A lot of my friends, co-workers, and random people I've talked to don't care to see it only here and there people are saying they will or might go.

Everyone I know is seeing the other 2 movies coming out in theaters for sure

Thats what i have been saying, yeah it doesn't come out till July but movies like The Dark Knight Rises and Avengers have been getting hype for months now, almost a full year.

I really don't see this Spider-man movie being all that successful , or even that good for that matter.
It won't even get a whiff of the kind of money Raimis movies made

It's the big 4th of July release. Lots of people will go see it. They may say differently now but once we get to that holiday weekend and there's nothing else to do except look at fireworks, they'll check it out.

Yeah i am sure that first weekend it will be big, but doesn't mean it will sustain for a long period of time.

I am saying this movie makes 220 mil max in the U.S and wouldn't surprise me if it made less.

Once again, let's look at the gross for the much-hated Spider-Man 3:

Domestic: $336.5 million (#1 film of 2007)
International: $554.3 million (#3 for 2007)
Worldwide: $890.8 million (#3 for 2007)

The movie studios never rely on sustainability anymore. They plan to make most of their box office money during the opening weekend. If it lasts beyond opening weekend that's great, but they don't depend on it, especially during the summer season.

The Amazing Spider-Man has pretty much and open BO chance. It opens the 3rd and Batman 3 the 20th.
Only thin in between them is Ice Age 4. Which is a different genre. It can make money the question is would it or even should it.

Of course not. However, just because a movie makes $890 million at the box office, that doesn't mean that the movie studio actually gets all that money for themselves. Opening week is when the studio gets it's highest percentage from the box office, according to their deals with the domestic movie theatres. In the following weeks, the theatres keep a progressively higher percentage of the domestic B.O. take. In the foreign market, the percentage that goes to the studio is far lower than the US. On average, a movie studio can expect to keep about 50% of the worldwide B.O. total.

Because despite all the fanboy complains online, people liked it. A movie doesn't gross $800 million worldwide with people hating it. Time and time again we've seen poor word-of-mouth kill a movie. We saw it with Hulk. We saw it with Batman & Robin. But Spidey 3 was dominated the U.S. box office and was #3 WW for `07. Reboot or not, if ASM connects with the audience, it'll do well at the box office.

Not to rain on your parade, but... who's 'we'? I've hated the idea of this film with a passion, and I will never pay to see it. Neither will most of my friends, so I'm pretty sure that your statement is basically off by a great margin.

I might so and see it, I'm still not decided. On the one hand, I love superhero movies and I do like Spider-Man. On the other hand, this does not look like a movie worth my time or money.

And because I always end up paying for my girlfriend's ticket, it makes going to movies I'm a little iffy on a lot harder to justify.

One thing the movie does have going for it is its release timing in that there is a bit of a lull in between Brave/Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter (6/22) and TDKR (7/20). I can handle periods of waiting like that in the early months of the year, but when the summer is here I tend to get a little antsy if I'm not seeing a new movie every week or so.
