The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The eternal question, at least these days, is whether or not critics matter. One only has to look at last week's "Divergent," which opened strong despite a slew of middling reviews, to notice that certain properties are immune to criticism. On the flipside, Paramount is gambling this week with "Noah," being particularly selective about what critics see the movie first, and in some markets, not screening the movie for reviewers at all, perhaps fearing that negative or mixed responses might dampen box office prospects. The critic/studio/filmmaker is one that's always in flux, but Andrew Garfield sees things quite clearly when it comes to his big summer movie.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is just over a month away from slinging into theatres and Sony has mobilized their marketing team to make it their number one priority. Even with over four weeks away from seeing the movie, well, we've already seen a lot from the sequel just through the smorgasbord of clips, trailers and promos. And determined to leave no stone unturned, no plot point undiscovered, even more has arrived over the past few days.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
As witnessed with both “Qui-Gon’s Funeral” and just recently with a certain track in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier," soundtrack listings can spell a film out before its release or simply obscure its plotline further. Comic book adaptations have to be on the ball in this regard, and even though they’re determined to show every corner of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” in trailers, Sony are playing quite coy with Hans Zimmer’s score.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Today in New York, we were treated to a sampling of footage from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," this summer's hotly anticipated super-sequel, complete with a Q&A afterwards with director Marc Webb. While the showcase of footage might seem unnecessary and redundant given the amount of trailers (the final one dropped today), clips, and other miscellanea that Sony has been unleashing, in a steady torrent, since last year, it was nice to see three sequences, mostly uninterrupted, that totaled 35 minutes of screen time. Conservatively, we've now seen a quarter of the movie, so we have a much better idea of what "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" has in store. Coupled with Webb's comments, this movie seems bigger and, thankfully, much better than it's predecessor. Those wishing to avoid spoilers are advised to sashay away now. Those who want a peek behind the web, please stick around.

While you might still be miffed that "The Amazing Spider-Man" told the origin story you already knew, director Marc Webb admits to Rolling Stone he actually turned down a script for the first movie that ditched it altogether. "It was different. It still had the Lizard in it, but it was a script that jumped ahead in time and relied on knowledge of the comic books that I don't think everyone had," he explained to the magazine. "Tonally, it was a little more tongue-in-cheek and glib, and I didn't feel the emotional connection. I just didn't know how else to develop that bond than with an origin story. I feel like it pays off in this movie, because now Andrew Garfield embodies Peter Parker."
