Watch 25 Minutes Of The Amazing Spider-Man
If you think that Sony has revealed a little too much of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, it looks like you might be right. The studio hasn't been shy with promoting the super-soon reboot of Spidey, coming just 5 years after Sam Raimi's trilogy, and if you're wondering just how much of Webb's take on Marvel's wall crawling, web slinger we've already seen, apparently it's about 25 minutes. Now, that sounds like a lot because, well, it is a lot.
The studio probably wants to ensure that the conversation remains constant, or preferably builds, all the way up to the release, but The Amazing Spider-Man might have reached over-saturation. At least, that's what I think The Sleepy Skunk, the person who made this compilation, means when saying, "this is what the studio wants us to know before we see the movie." My spidey-sense could be failing but I do believe that's sarcasm. Here's all the trailers, TV spots and clips edited together - in what seems to be the right order - if you're interested in seeing "The Amazing Spider-Man in 25 minutes."
Obviously, potential spoilers follow-- but we haven't seen the actual movie yet, and again, this is all material released by the studio, so we don't really know how to define "spoiler" in this case anyway.

Any marketing campaign walks a fine line with how much of the film to show audiences beforehand, but seriously how much is too much? I mean, why buy the arachnid when you get the silk for free? Okay, so I'm exaggerating to make a point (and slip in that dorky pun) since a tons of things remain unseen-- The Amazing Spider-Man's run-time is a hefty 136 minutes, after all, and I'm sure most of the released footage was from the first act of the film.
The Amazing Spider-Man opens on July 3rd. It stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Denis Leary.
