Trailer Blazer: 'Spider-Man 3'

94813__spiderman_lWas the hype for last night’s "premiere" of the new Spider-Man 3 trailer (watch it here) warranted? Let’s see, we got:
- Tobey in the superhot black Spidey suit.
- Tobey busting out of the superhot black Spidey suit.
- The comfort of knowing that likable Thomas Haden Church (Sandman) will, in fact, have a post-Oscar nod career.
- The reminder that while Kirsten Dunst’s voice can be annoying ("Do you wanna push me away?"), we’d much rather watch her than Kate Bosworth.
- The realization that Harry is actually the only role we care to see James Franco in (or is that just my experience watching the Annapolis trailer talking?).
- Proof that Topher Grace is always a welcome sight (although poster Phil has already taken issue with his highlights).
- Plans for May 4, 2007.

    Amazing trailer! I am so saving $20 in a jar now for May.

    I wanted to see some of Bryce Dallas Howard’s character Gwen and some of Topher as Venom. It was a good first trailer but I hope we get to see a lot more real soon.

  • Howard

    I saw most of it, and it looked terrific, just like the last one did. I need to watch it again, but I still stand by my belief that Kirsten Dunst was miscast as MJ. She was never supposed to be a “Girl Next Door” (figuratively) type; Mary Jane was always the voluptuous, way out of Peter’s league, but with a good heart. I don’t know who I’d have gone with (maybe Alicia Witt), but Kirsten ain’t it.

    Wow! I want to go see it now, lol!

    Geez. Leave Kirsten alone. She’s given the movie the gravity it needed.

  • AJH

    So now Spider Man is ripping off The Mummy and Lord of the Rings? Ouch. Not impressed.

  • John

    Can’t wait to see Topher as Venom…those clips will be in lockdown until the premiere!

  • Casey

    Not a big fan of Kirsten Dunst in these movies, but must agree that she’s Meryl Streep compared to Kate Bosworth. Nevertheless, I think the trailer is awesome.

  • matt

    hey AJH, I seriously doubt just because they have the sandman turning into sand they are ripping off The Mummy, I mean hello, this character is in the comic books that have been around for awhile. Get a clue and stop being so pissy.

  • Justin Mohareb

    Wait, Sandman is the guy that killed Uncle Ben? That’s just wrong. It looks pretty , but hopefully that plot twist will be played out better than it sounds.

  • Alex

    AJH —
    Just because something showed up in a movie 2 years ago doesn’t mean it wasn’t already done 30 years ago in the comics.
    I will say this about the movie, though. If you’re expecting to see a lot of Venom, you’ll probably be disappointed. I think they’re saving him for Spider-Man 4.

  • donner

    I agree with your comments Mandi…everything looked great and not that they had screwed it up…can’t wait to see this puppy in May!

  • chazzbot

    I’m a little wary of the idea of trying to incorporate three major villains into this film–isn’t that what ended up making the (first) Batman film franchise ridiculously overwrought?–but I have to say
    that this trailer looks pretty damn cool. The Sandman effects are awesome, and they even kept his dorky green-striped shirt from the comics.
    Is this the best superhero movie franchise ever? On the basis of this trailer, I’m prepared to offer my full geek endorsement.
    I’m not down with the Sandman being Uncle Ben’s killer, though. Where’s that coming from?
