Watch Leaked Amazing Spiderman Clips

Andrew Garfield hams it up in a blue and red costume.

I think I'm the only person in The Escapist office who doesn't hate the third Sam Raimi Spider-Man film. Nevertheless, cramming Venom and Sandman in the same movie might have killed the franchise enough to warrant a prompt reboot, but what I've seen of Andrew Garfield - who you might recognize from The Social Network - there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason to see his Amazing Spider-Man over Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker. These three clips unlocked from codes found in Kellogg's breakfast cereals through a promotion and promptly uploaded to YouTube by a Spanish speaking gentleman don't change that first impression.

In the first bit, Garfield is awakened on a New York City subway car and jumps up to grab the roof, frightening innocent commuters in the process. How did he get away with that without wearing his mask? And why was he asleep on the subway? Doesn't Peter Parker know that's illegal? So many questions.

The second clip is supposed to be funny, with Spider-Man in full regalia toying with a crook by sticking him to a wall with webbing. The sneezing gag is pretty funny, I suppose, but there's something off about Garfield's smarmy delivery.

The final clip repeats an age-old joke but not very well. Unused to his super-human strength, Peter Parker can't even brush his teeth without smashing the tube, ripping off the faucet and finally the door knob. I don't have a problem with reusing good sight gags, but Sam Raimi basically did the exact same thing in the first Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire fumbling around his bedroom.

Here's a free tip for Marc Webb on directing The Amazing Spider-Man: If you're going to remake a movie, don't directly steal scenes from the previous director's interpretation.

Next thing you know, Webb will ask Bruce Campbell to do a cameo.

That still looks awful, and his acting is making it worse.

There's smoke coming out of his wrists in the second clip. They're going back to the web cartridges?

Looks like a Bruce Campbel cameo is just about the only thing that could make this movie bearable at this point.

Soviet Heavy:

I think Garfield has forgotten the meaning of the word sincerity.

He says in the clip that he invented it, so yeah.

Second clip kind of amused me, honestly.

The worst part is that I like him as an actor. He was great in the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, so why is he so awful here?

Bleeahhhhhhhh....not really liking this at all.
This guy just seems like more of a jerkass than Toby MacGuire's Spidey.

Not the best clips that could have been leaked...

I hope.

Agreed.

Maybe some goofy music cues can soften the tone, but as it stands, the scene with the crook just feels way too much like a bully saying, "Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself?"

Not Spider-Man.

Maybe the studio is just trolling fans? You know what I'm going back to the pretending I didn't see this blanket.

Not only that, but look at the way he stands in the second clip.
The way he's positioned, His stance is nothing like you expect from Spider-man.

This is like that parplexing hulk remake, that went into production the SAME YEAR as the release of the OTHER hulk movie, and were both ABOUT the genesis of the Hulk. So it was essentially the same movie, released twice, but with a different subplot. It was so weird...

This is a needless remake! Raimi's movies were completely and utterly demonstrably fine! Sure the third one tripped at the last hurdle. But it's too soon!

A remake in 20 or 30 years I can understand, but why now!?

The smarmy tone does kind've give off a creepy vibe, almost sounding cruel in a way. That said, one of the few things I really missed from the Raimi Spidermans were the one-liners: it was funny, sure, but there was something charming about SM's banter in the cartoons and comics. This might be the only thing that actually makes me want to see this...maybe.

So by "Amazing," they mean "Amazingly terrible." Why does it look like the Japanese Spider-man series?

I can see the "too easy" line as a little chuckle-worthy, but really, this reeks of nothing but 'meh'.

And I don't like this Garfield guy at all. Didn't see anything special about him in Social Network, and seriously not seeing Spider-Man in him.

Fuck it, I'll be honest. Looks like shit.

Robert Ewing:

Because Spider-man 2 and 3 broke box office records, and because, allegedly, Raimi decided not to work on the fourth movie after too much meddling by Sony.

I guess that's all it boils down too. A guiltless money grab.

Hey Greg, Greg... we can always use a little Bruce Campbell man.

I will direct you to Ryan Renolds. Watch Buried... then watch the Green Lantern.

It looks painfully average, though as always I have to see the full movie to fully judge it.

P.S. Don't feel bad Greg, I liked the third Spider Man movie too!

I have a suspicion that these clips might not be in the actual film, instead being just used as teasers.

I kind of liked the webing one. Wasn't actually funny but the concept was cool.

OK I'm with you on not lifting from Raime's Spiderman and all. But by God if Bruce Campbell wants to do a cameo then Bruce Campbell should be able to do a cameo! First rule of the universe; Everything is better with Bruce Campbell in it. End of story. :)

Greg Tito:
Next thing you know, Webb will ask Bruce Campbell to do a cameo.

Hey, I'd ask him to do one too. What? I like Bruce Cambell.

Also, I kind of liked Spider-Man 3 myself.

Man thats disappointing. I really love Garfield as an actor, and I held onto my hope for this movie after the first trailer kind of blew. I'm still hopeful, but these clips didn't help. The second one was kind of amusing, as others have said, but overall it just isn't looking great.

Who knows. Guess we'll just have to wait for the release this summer.

(Also, ads in the captcha? The Escapist is addressing its financial problems in weird ways...)

There's really not enough here to pass any kind of judgement to be honest guys. Combine that with the frankly awful sound quality of the YouTube video and I'm not sure that there's really anything that can be said.

Is this a joke? If this is part of the film, "Spiderman: The Quest For Twilight Money" looks worse than I already imagined it would be

And fuck this ad-based captcha. Little Ceasars is greasy garbage.

Middle one was alright. The audio was wonky so I couldn't get a good grasp on his delivery, so we'll see for certain later.

This does not change my initial opinion in any way. I expected complete crap from the moment I heard Raimi was removed.

Well Jesus Christ guys, most of you guys sound determined to hate the movie, and came in looking at the clips from that perspective.

Realize this is less than two minutes worth of clips, so please, calm your balls.

That footage looks like its months old and the edits don't seemed finished.

They don't have to reinvent the wheel for the amazing spider-man movie. I just hope for some surprises.

I didn't know we had started basing our entire opinion of movies less than 2 minutes of footage with poor sound quality, but hey there you go.

As for the "questions" raised by the first clip - haven't you ever fallen asleep on public transport before? Or find yourself waking with a jump for whatever reason? It's really not that outlandish a scene if you think about it.

But yeh, I also liked Spiderman 3, despite the fact I had heard so much bad press about it I went in expecting a complete travesty.

Terrible sound, with potentially multiple takes strung together (for the middle scene when he's stringing the guy up), and highly unlikely to be the final edit.

So yeah, no shit it doesn't look great.

Acting in the actual trailers seems fine. And yes, those are obviously highlights strung together in short succession, but then this leak is hardly representative either.

We may as well be sitting around and complaining that clips of characters being animated for a game makes the final product out to be a little shitty, because there's no textures or music, and all the voice work is filler, and some of the animations don't look real yet.

Nooners:
Bleeahhhhhhhh....not really liking this at all.
This guy just seems like more of a jerkass than Toby MacGuire's Spidey.

Well MacGuire's was (and I believe this is the scientific term) a massive pussy, so that's not exactly difficult or surprising.

Something about just how easily that bathroom fell apart didn't make it look like super strength at all but just bad luck in a very poorly constructed bathroom. At least TRY and make it look like there's some extra force there....

Cheery Lunatic:

That's the impression I got too.
Mind you, I can't friggin' stand the 'original' trilogy and I'm actually really looking forward to this so maybe that's why I liked these clips. Saw absoloutely nothing wrong with them.
Some people just seem to be scraping the bottom of the barrel for reasons to dislike these clips.
'Spider-Man wouldn't do that to a criminal' - What comics have YOU been reading?
'His stance is wrong' - Fucking what??

And if I may quote wikipedia regarding the cancelled Spider-Man 4:
"Raimi also discussed his desire to upgrade Bruce Campbell from a cameo appearance to a significant role. It was reported in December 2009 that John Malkovich was in negotiations to play Vulture and that Anne Hathaway would play Felicia Hardy, though she would not have transformed into the Black Cat as in the comics. Instead, Raimi's Felicia was expected to become a new superpowered figure called the Vulturess"

Fuck. Sam. Raimi.

Also the rights to spider-man were about to go back to Marvel and Sony were afraid that:
A: They would do a better job, and looking at their movies so far they probebly would do
B: They were afraid that Marvel would put him in The Avengers and make it an even bigger hit than it already will be.

You shall now be savagely beaten for mentioning the movie that shall never be named again! I will, however, give you the choice of a baseball bat or a sledgehammer.

In related Ryan Reynolds news, I hope he does a better job with Deadpool than he did GL or I will be paying him a visit to perform another of the above mentioned savage beatings.

I may be one of the few people who didn't like Raimi's Spider-Man. He was soul less. Never joked, never had any banter. Just give Spidey back to Marvel please.
