Honestly I didn’t expect a reboot so soon however I guess it had to be done to keep the uniformity and conformity with the other Marvel movies (Avengers, Ironman, Captain America, etc. etc.).
Many thanks to Sony Pictures Malaysia for hosting Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers at the IMAX media screening.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (played by Andrew Garfield of The Social Network), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (played by the legendary Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (played by 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 (played by the gorgeous 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 (played by 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.
Yes the above is pretty much the official synopsis and I’m not going to reveal any more. Go watch the movie in IMAX!
Like most Marvel movies, there is an ending scene after the credits so do stay back to catch it.
The Amazing Spider-Man opens in Malaysian cinemas on 5 July 2012.
