Thompson on Hollywood

Not to raise expectations, but that previously untitled Spider-Man reboot that is currently shooting with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone has landed an uninspired official name based on one of the franchise's long running comic books: The Amazing Spider-Man -- not to be confused with any other less amazing Spider-Man movie that has come before. The film, directed by Marc Webb from a script by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent will be released entirely in 3-D on July 3, 2012.

Sony also released their latest full-body image of Andrew Garfield (who lost the supporting actor BAFTA Sunday to Geoffrey Rush) in his Spidey regalia. Again, it doesn't seem rockingly new.
