Just as Warner Bros. did with their (kinda crappy) Dark Knight Rises teaser, and just as Disney's been doing with their (pretty cool) Avengers teaser, I have little doubt Sony will soon yank this from the internet, because good god, WHY WOULD YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO LET PEOPLE WATCH AN AD FOR YOUR PRODUCT. But anyway: There's now a bootleg of the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, directed by (500) Days of Summer's Marc Webb and starring The Social Network's Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker (along with Emma Stone! And Rhys Ifans! And Denis Leary!).
As the world's biggest Spider-Man dork, my opinion is probably totally moot here, but I will say that despite the ZZZZZZZZZZ decision to make it (another) boring-ass origin story, and despite the fact that I'm pretty sure it's going to make people blow chunks when they see it in 3D, I'm still ridiculously excited for this—that casting's great, and even in this trailer's murky, wobbly state, it still looks like the finished product's gonna be gorgeous. You should watch it before Sony yanks it in .025 seconds. It's here.
